How about Mr./Mrs. I don't need to pull over to allow these emergency vehicles by, I'm sure they'll get through ok

Before I moved to Delaware, I never saw such disregard for emergency vehicles. They even make it hard for the people who do want to pull over and let them by to actually do so.

All I can say is that one day it may be their loved one who can't make it to the hospital on time all because some d#*&head couldn't spare the 10 seconds to let their ambulance pass.

This is a very specific one but since I've spent the morning beating my head against the wall I will add it. I hate Mr I just called to let you know that I am dropping out of your theatre production three weeks before it is due to go on and I have just scheduled two of your actors to work the nights of your play but since I am on the Theatre Troupe executive I am going to give you supreme hell because now you have to cancel.

I saw a variation of this in Toronto once. And not just anywhere in Toronto, but at the corner of Dundas and Yonge Sts., possibly the busiest intersection in the city. It's right at the heart of downtown Toronto, so of course someone in a car decides to stop and have a conversation with a friend on the sidewalk. Then the friend on the sidewalk calls over more friends to make it a true reunion during rush hour.

They did get theirs, though: some of the less-impressed motorists decided to yell, "What the **** is wrong with you?!?" at the top of their lungs. I applauded.

Some people are idiots. What can I say?

Speaking of ...

Mr. I Can't Believe You Listen To That Kind Of Crap! He insists on telling you your preferred music has no merit/is too commercial/is otherwise not "music." Meanwhile, he listens to stuff that could only make sense on an acid trip -- and is so proud of this, that he thinks it makes him better than you.

Of course, his musical opinions are always unsolicited.

Ah, excellent another place where I can vent about:

"The Power-Tripping Narcissitic RA Roommate"

Does no work, blunders home loudly in the dead of night, waking everyone up in the process, steals food, skips class and through it all thinks he is the cock-of-the-walk because he has a tiny shred of authority, which he only uses when the breaking of the rules doesn't suit him.

I suppose that that is a specific person I have in mind there.

I will also add

The "White-Middle-Class-Suburban Rap-Is-My-Life-Affirming-Musical-Art-Form Guy"

Which isn't to say that white guys can't like rap, it just seems silly how they talk about the "poetry of the streets" when the closest they've been to "the streets" is driving through the downtown area while on the way to the sports area on the other side of the city. They defend the genre as though it were the collective works of Bethoveen, Mozart and Bach combined and as though it mirrors their lives completely, while we all know that they've never been confronted by any of the situations of violence and exploitation that they so gleefully sing along with.

And they have the nerve to call my Classic Rock noise.

That's been the law in both places I've been licensed (Oregon and California). AFAIK, that's the case everywhere.

Of course, Mr./Ms. "I'm too important to pull over for that ambulance/fire truck/cop. I'm sure the emergency can wait so I don't have to slow down by even a second" exists and probably kills people everywhere. [flame]

I'll second the vote for Mr. "Everyone for a block around HAS to hear my bass pounding away at 0-dark-30. No one needs to sleep so they can go to work, after all". (Note: as far as I've observed, this offender is always male. I've never seen a female offender in this category.)

He's right up there, IMO, with Mr./Ms. "Sure, everyone in my apartment building and probably a few nearby ones wants to hear MY stereo, not their own" (this one also tends toward "quiet hours? That CAN'T mean ME").

Officer tailgater. If you're in a hurry, turn on your lights or siren. Otherwise, try to set a good example for other drivers by keeping proper following distance and speed. I've seen the sign, I know the limit - and I'm at it. Probably related to officer 'hollywood stop', who makes the same rolling stops that he cites everyone else for.

Check your local noise ordinances. A lot of places have ordinances that don't allow loud noises before certain times (I think usually something like 8 am on weekends). And a loud noise can be anything from a lawn mower on up. If you have such, a call to the cops will brring them out to check usually, then they can tell the NFBSKer to quiet down, without you having to get involved. If you have a HOA, they can sometimes get involved, too, depending on your covenants.

Ah, time to add my favorite,

Mr My beer is waaaay more important than you!. Once, when I was at UDF, I had an Xbox mag, and an ice cream cone. Nothing too big or expensive, and all of a sudden, Big mullet torn denim vest with missing teeth and confederate flag tattoo guy cuts in front of me with a couple of 12 packs of Bud.
I try to be polite, this is how the conversation went (word for word)

Me: Excuse me, I was in front of you.
Him: No you weren't.
Me: Yes, I was. Please move, sir.
Him: I'm not moving. I have a girlfriend waiting for me out in the car, and I don't want to make her wait.
Me: I was in front of you. Please move. You have moved in front of me, so may I PLEASE have my place in line back?
Him: NFBSK! Will you just NFBSKing SHUT UP! I swear to NFBSKing GOD!

I put away the magazine, threw down a couple of bucks for the ice cream, and, in passing said,
"yeah, I can see why you need all that beer. That girlfriend of yours is one ugly chick."

Not exactly the most cutting remark, but the clerk had to stifle a laugh, and Mr Beer gave me the most angry look.

Mr. I'm gonna leave the wrong phone number and have to call back in 30 seconds because I didn't realize I wasn't at my house and I gave you my home number.

I actually have little fantasies sometimes about what I'd like to do to people like that. The fantasies usually involve punching out their windows in order to smash up their sound systems, followed by force-feeding them their own idiotic spin rims.

Oh, my God. As I type this, there is a NFBSK-head parked in front of my house with bass so loud the glass is vibrating in my window panes. Oh lovely. Now all the car alarms are going off. I effing hate this neighborhood.

OOhhh FoT if you really promise to make the bass-blasters die painfully, I will champion your campaign for Emperor. I lose my mind when NFBSKers drive around like that. My husband has learned to pull me out of hearing distance of them in public places so I don't get my butt kicked.
May I also suggest the addition of "Mr or Ms I am not listening to what you are saying so Ill get snarky and impatient" to the list? My principal does this, which is infuriating
P:"Why is Susie behaving like this?"
Me:"Well, in workimg with her, I believe it's a behavioral issue, not a therapeutic issue"
P:"Yes but do you think it's a therapeutic issue?"
Me:"Umm.."
I have noticed it with customer service people as well....they need smiting....mightily...

I just listened to one of these guys go down the street — the bass actually just came out as this rattling, pounding sound. I don't think he even had music to go with it. But I just laugh now. Hearing loss will be a NFBSK someday.

How about:
- Ms. I Just Had a Baby Monday, So I'm Outside Smoking Today While Waiting for My Infant Formula From WIC. Smoker? Fine. I'm all for freedom (and a ciggy every now and again). But a carton in Illinois is over $45, and you're getting help with your infant formula? I know that stuff's expensive too — maybe you should quit smoking so as to better afford it yourself. Also, something tells me you didn't take a break from smoking just because you were pregnant.
- Ms. My Child is Exhausting, So I give Up, Because I'm Too Tired to Deal With Him. Ma'am, I'd appreciate if you'd at least pull him off the ceiling. It makes me nervous to have him hanging over my head like that.

About 4 years ago I was working drive through at a Hardees when a Bass Thumper came through the line. He rolled down his window and I expected to hear some kind of music, ya know someone rapping over it or some kinda techno thing. Nope, just beats. I'm thinking (George Carlin voice) WHY!!! What's the point of playing nothing but beats?

This reminds me of a good one. Oh dear NY you are NOT in the city.

Thanks for screwing up my left green arrow!

ETA: "I also won't speed up when the light changes from red to green because I have a stroller or because you have no where to be"

Come on people! I saw two elderly ladies (one had a cane too) and they made it across with a second left!! Reminded me of the 81 yr old jaywalker.

All the Mr.'s and Miss's ThisweekendisQuadfest,IamgoingtogetSOwasted!Oh my god!Where are you going this weekend?. It may still be the weekend that WOULD HAVE BEEN Quadfest, except you drunken dipshits made the new president cancel it*. Not that I care about it.

Ugh...I really hate college kids sometimes--and I am one! [Roll Eyes]

How about Ms. I have to get on my cell phone right after class ends and tell someone, anyone that I just got out of class? Does your friend really care? Come on, what a waste of energy and minutes.

Or Ms. Talks as the Prof. is teaching and then complains that she "doesn't get it..." and "this is stupid..."

Arrgh. People!

Oh, I hear you. Drunken idiots REALLY get on my nerves, especially if they're rolling around in the hall right outside your door, screaming, laughing, and vomiting all over each other while yelling about things that are most definitely NFBSK while you're on the phone with your mom... Not like that's ever happened to me, of course. [Roll Eyes]

And closely related to your Ms. "Talks As The Prof Is Teaching And Then Whines Because She 'Doesn't Get It'" is somebody who I'll call Mr. "I Know More Than The Prof About This Subject So I'm Going To Talk Very Loudly To The Girl Beside Me, Stopping My Discussion With Her Only To Argue About Points With The Prof To Demonstrate My Superior Knowledge." [fish]

Bah. I'm sure there are other people I could think of, but I've been doing quite a bit of spleen-venting tonight and so I'm kind of tired. [Wink]

He's got 'em on a list. He's got 'em on a list. And they'd none of them be missed. They'd none of them be missed.

I can't think of anyone who hasn't been covered-- somehow this makes me sad.

Give it time Tantei Kid, I'm sure there'll be a few.

My downstairs neighbour (I suspect he's been sufficiently yelled at by other neighbours that he's now behaving himself) when he first moved in combined several of these personalities all in one ageing, alcoholic body. Rolling Stones at full volume at 3am? Check. Getting angry and yelling when neighbours pound on the walls to get him to shut the NFBSK up? Check. Deciding to take up DIY at 5am? Check. I can still hear his TV in the evenings but only in my lounge and I usually have my TV or stereo on so his is only faint background (yes, I can still hear it). He's been okay for a while now. Methinks there was a threat to call the police and/or his landlord.

Are the monkeys less expensive or something? I've been jobhunting for months, applying to every store, fast food place and temp agency in my city, and I haven't gotten a single damn callback! What's the freakin' deal!?
