I'm especially amused when someone corrects another's spelling in a post somewhere and misspells something in the process.

Elderly people who queue jump - think because they're old, they can forget basic good manners.

One old duck, who apparently was a chronic queue jumper, got told:"That's right dear, go in front of us - we've got lots more time than you have!"

Second hate is at a party or some such gathering, when a pompous twerp demands to know "And what do you do?"

I told the last genius who asked me this "About 200,000 a year - how's yourself?"

Could go on forever but I've got a rule for now - if I get more than my share of queue jumpers, cash point customers who take about 15 minutes to use the machine (usually outside in the pouring rain), kids screaming and shouting and generally swarming around while I have my 'quiet' cup of coffee - GO STRAIGHT HOME AND TO HELL WITH THE LOT OF IT AND THEM. IT'S JUST NOT WORTH THE AGGRO.

I take extra long when someone does that. I have to get 2 kids buckled in anyway, but then I check the cell phone, my lists, coupon pile, or anything else just so I don't have to back out in the 2 1/2 feet of space they gave.

Oooh another one- idea/ideal confusion. An idea is a thought, ideal is a standard. Buying more yarn is a good idea, not ideal. There's a lady in another forum that's been corrected 3 times but still uses ideal instead of idea.

I can't stand when people are 10 feet from the cart return, and just leave the shopping cart in the empty parking space right beside them. I always make a remark when I see this, and put the stupid thing where it belongs, or if I need a cart I just say "Thanks for the cart!". I think that is really rude... the cart could roll into someone's car! I also can't stand seeing someone whip into a handicapped space, and when they get out there is clearly nothing wrong with them. I always make a remark about that too, like "Wow, I hope I have that much energy if I am ever handicapped!" I also hate when I have been waiting in 20 degree weather at the bus stop for 15 minutes, and the lady whose house is right in front of the bus stop, comes out when she sees the bus at the end of the street, and absolutely has to get on the bus in front of me. Go right ahead... I hear the frostbitten look is in this winter! I bit my tongue on that one for a long time, then one day, as she was hurrying to get on the bus, I just sped up and cut right in front of her. As I was walking back to get a seat, I heard her say to the driver "Boy, she's in a hurry isn't she?" No, you dim wit... I was waiting first, so I get on first. That's all that really bothers me. Most stuff, I just let roll off. I just laugh at people, makes me feel better than having my blood pressure go through the roof. :happydancing:

Runners do this because asphalt is softer than concrete.

you think that's bad? i was in michaels a couple of weeks ago and they already had christmas wreaths hanging way up on the wall in the back above the yarn! sure, they get them in early, but do they really have to put them out in the store for us to see? isn't that why they have ginormous stock rooms anyway?!? i used to work in one of the big stores and of the many things that bugged me, that was one of the ones that bugged me the most.
