Everybody has at least one, what are yours? I don't mean something that makes you mad necessarily, but sort of mildly annoys you when it crosses your path.

Personally:
1- litter. This got worse once I took up the trash collecting profession.

2- poor grammar, either spoken or in print. Admittedly, I'm not the best at either, but I try. I think I overuse commas more than anything else.

3- cyclists. Damn most of them. (Keeping this one short)

Cigarette smokers that flick their butts onto the street, sidewalk, lawn, wherever. Is it that hard to find a trash can? (I am a cigarette smoker, but I get the remnants in the trash.

I work alone, so I don't know about unruly gas issues much. I'm sure that can't be great though. Aside from calling them out on it, I don't know what to tell you. I do smoke cigs, but I drive a big garbage can most of the time. Otherwise I strip the butts and put them in my pocket.

Can't wait to see where this thread goes once the codgers show up lol.

Codger checking in here.

Will have to give this some thought. Frankly I try not to let too much irritate me these days.

That said, young workers shirking their duties and responsibilities are an annoyance. Perhaps I was once like this at their age, but finally "got it" early on. I was on my own from 17 onwards and had to figure it out. Not hard if you want a life of partying or something better!

Cheers,

Wait-staff that insist on grabbing your plate while you're still chewing your last bite and while others at the table are still eating.

Barbarians. Open mouth chewers. Double standards. Pointless cruelty. Cigarette butts laying about like animal droppings. Drivers in the passing lane with their turn signal on for hours, doing less than the speed limit. My own poor craftsmanship....

I get that. I try to bear in mind that most people only have point of view for the world. Notice I said try haha. You see a lot more of who people really are when you are on the road I notice. For all the decent ones there are, there is far too many a-holes running around in the mix.

It makes me wonder if I'm from the only family that handed out whippings for misbehavior in the 80s

Women (usually older and plus size) that use way too much perfume.
Drivers that are looking down texting and do not know the light has changed until you honk.
Families who let their kids crawl on the floor and scream in public areas and just smile.
Old women who hold up the checkout line digging through their purse for correct change.
Aholes who get a dog, chain it out and ignore it.
Fake boobs.
Hardwood instead of carpet.

You sound like a really neat guy, but I have to admit that our dog does not like trash trucks.
I am sure that its not personal but she goes bonkers when a trash truck, or a UPS truck for that matter, goes by on our walks. She does, however, like USPS trucks because they carry treats.

Ron is so right about this. A neighbor of mine gave his 11 YO a spanking for deliberately damaging another neighbor's property and the kid called the police. They came and DSS got involved and  the neighbor had to go to court to get his kid back because the DSS took the child out of their custody. They were later exonerated of any wrong doing but it cost them thousands of dollars in legal fees and now they are scared to discipline the child in any way. I am so glad all of my kids are grown and I don't have to deal with them. No No

In addition to all of the above, may I add:

Drivers who can't,

1. Parallel park correctly if at all,

2. Angle park, nor can they

3. Pull into a straight-in parking slot!!

And we give'em a drivers license and let'em vote!!! Evil or Very Mad cheers FTRPLT

Oh man!

People who don't get off their phones when they come into my store and either ignore my greetings or try to ask me for help and then try to listen to two conversations.

People who ask if we carry Cubans. Ignorance is only bliss for the ignorant one.

People who mistreat wait-staff and retail people just because they think they are better.

People who love drama. This isn't high school, get over it.

People who eat out every night, party on weekends, always taking trips, but then complain and whine when an unexpected expense comes up (transmission, accident, extra fees) or they don't have any savings for big things/retirement. PLEASE grow a set, learn how to budget, and handle your business.

Panhandlers/beggars. I understand that not all of us are fortunate enough to have a house, but I'm a small female and I REALLY dislike being approached by strange males for money. I feel the need to help but I also feel the need to punch you in the throat and run away.

I second all of the driving ones and the children running around. I see amazing amounts of stupidity in the mall including children being unattended, running around, and screaming. UGH.

This is all true! I also dislike when people pull through from space to the next but don't get the rear-end of the vehicle all the way into the second parking spot. Essentially taking up two spots unless you drive a SmartCar...
