What drives you absolutely crazy?

For me, it's drivers who sit in the left lane without ever glancing at the rear-view mirror. I just can't take it, I go nuts.

I also drive 65 miles/day.

Meeting people who do not know you or anything about you and act all snotty - eg
Going in to an office of some low life with one job in life ( handing out ticket for the toilets) and they act like you are a piece of dirty and are snappy etc with you.

This get my back up and I have to make the decision ignore or start reflecting their behaviour.

Got it.

Let's see now...what drives me absolutely crazy? Punk-assed teenagers with nothing better to do than drive up and down residential streets, shooting out car windows with pellet guns. Little buggers got my truck, and my wifes car last Monday night. And considering that we are in the single digits, temperature wise, it was a damn cold ride to work Tuesday morning, after I discovered the damage. Of course, I felt more sorry for my wife, and our 16 month old son, who also had a very chilly morning. I hope they had fun...'cause if I ever get ahold of 'em...well, let's just say it's best not put to these pages.

People who say "real-i-tur" instead of "realtor" and "nuculur" instead of "nuclear."

When I don't get any salt with my unsalted fries at the drive through and I don't notice till I've already driven away.

Cashiers with really really long fingernails that keep them from pressing the keys on the cash register so they have to go really slow and keep hitting the wrong button anyhow.

Showing up 10 minutes early for a doctors appointment and being called back to the exam room right away...and then waiting for 25 minutes with year-old magazines about cars or something lame before anybody notices you're there.

People who bring an infant to a movie and don't leave when the baby starts screaming.

Well, I know this is kind of weird... But what really drives me crazy - and not in the good way - is when I am subjected to the presence of a bunch of giggling chicks. Honestly, nothing is more irritating to me than the pointless hee-giggle-hee of girls between ages 12 and 26. Hopefully, after that, they start to calm down a bit.

Where should I start.......

Men who take a piss in a public place and walk out without washing their hands.

Friends who say they will call you later to go out but they (pick one excuse):
-phone was lost
-phone broken
-something came up suddenly

People who chew their fingernails

that should be a good start....

Doesn't matter if you are going 175, it's not your decision to say "you don't need to go faster". Sounds like you've never had to do anything like drive someone to the hospital in an emergency situation.

If you're not passing someone and someone comes up behind you, GET OUT OF THE LEFT LANE DAMMIT! Leave speed enforcement to the police. I wish people would grasp that extremely basic concept.

People who won't follow through on simple requests. Case in point, I coach a church league high school team. The coach of our other team is the youth director at church. One of the other team's jerseys got ripped apart in a game. I offered to buy a replacement jersey, but I needed to know the number on the jersey so we didn't duplicate numbers. He was supposed to e-mail me with the number the next day. The games are tomorrow and I have yet to hear from him.

Interesting...this made me think for a bit. I have on occasion lied to someone in their face, and even gotten upset with them for not believing my lie even after they caught me on it. Isn't the human mind fascinating?

I'm quite adept at the art of urinating without wetting my fingers. Given that I've bathed my person in total within the last 24 hours, how is the touching of my penis without washing any different than touching my arm?

When I'm the workplace, I'll wash my hands before urinating. My hands are dirty, but my penis is clean.

Yes! Exactly! You said this better than I could irseg.

Some of my pet peeves-

listening to people chew (ewwww) as they eat next to me
Obese girls in belly shirts
Turning on the Radio after three weeks and still hearing the same damn songs
Cops that know laws don't apply to them after dark

It drives me crazy when I'm on the phone, and people try to talk to me. I make it a point not to talk on the phone while dealing with the public, but if I'm in the break room on my pathetically short lunch and decide to make a phone call, LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE! I guess it's because I'm so easily distracted...
