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.

I can sometimes be confused for one of those. If I have to be somewhere right after I get out of class (like, let's say I'm meeting SO for lunch) I'll call right as I get out of class and say "I'm done with class."

ETA because quoting doesn't like attempts to un-bold something.

Mr. I Have To Stand Outside My Hotel Room (across from your room) And Loudly Make Plans With Other People For Tomorrow who seems to be always accompanied by Drunk Lady With The Annoying, Sharp, Loud Laugh.
Okay, go in the room, go back to the lobby, go to hell, go somewhere other than outside my room! I'm tryin' to sleep, here! Silly me, renting a room with a bed and wanting to do that. I can only hope that they get The Room With The Alarm Set For 3 a.m. With The Mexican Music Music Blaring Loud Enough For The Maid To Hear It Over The Vacuum. Or, better yet, I hope the have the room next to the vacant Room With The Alarm Set For 3 a.m. With The Mexican Music Music Blaring Loud Enough For The Maid To Hear It Over The Vacuum. You know, the one you have to call the front desk for to send someone up to turn the NFBSKing thing off.

I'm not sure which of these annoys me more:

Mr/Ms Yes I know you're in the crosswalk, and I can see the light is red, but you see, I drive a car, so I'm way more imprtant than you, plus I can rev my engine loudly so you'd best get out of the way.

OR,
Ms. (in my experience this is always a woman) Oh my goodness, someone's in the crosswalk! What do I do? What do I do? I know, I'll glare at them, cause it can't possibly be my fault I didn't notice you until I almost hit you.

This reminds me of the time I was at the movie theater while the guy mowed the lawn right outside the exits to the theater. The lawn mower noise was sufficient to drown out the dialog everytime he made a pass.

Two from driving:

Mr I think my right on a red trumps your advanced green left turn because I'm older

One from work:

One from my wife's e-mail pals:

Sorry, Karmyn, but I'm one of those types that comes to a complete stop before turning. You would, too, if your parents got in a severe accident when someone that DIDN'T make a complete stop at a stop sign cut in front of them. My parents chose to ram the passenger's side of a different car. It was either the car in front of them or the one to the side. *note: They would have been thrown through the windshield if they hadn't worn their seatbelts. So just a reminder to please wear your seatbelts at all times!*

Mr. Well, I'm the chauvanist asshole that thinks my opinion is better than yours, so I'll drone on in class for a couple minutes. Seriously, T, STFU! Couldn't you hear us all sighing or saying "shut up..."? At least when I make valid points, I'm blunt. It's a shame I haven't been more blunt when you talk and just scream that you need to shut up. Oh wait- that's called manners. First, don't go saying that the girls you group with in class don't know what they're talking about, when it's a subject that involves women and their mentalities. Second, don't go saying crap that you don't know the first thing about. Third- your proctologist sent a message a long time ago, and I've forgotten to give it to you until now. He found your head.*

...ooh...I should SO say that in class one day...

*T is the same guy who, earlier this semester, said "I have never found a girl that can cook for me. My grandmother said that when I grew up and became a real man, that I'd find a woman that can cook for me. And I'm here, and haven't found a girl that can do that yet." Without skipping a beat, I said "You must not be a real man then, yet." The class had to be paused for about 3 minutes, while everyone was cracking up. I really need to get back on those zings against him...

Are we talking left turns or right turns? Coming to a complete stop before a left turn is, I was taught, proper practice; coming to a complete stop before a right turn is not.* And if the concern is somebody running a stop sign, then to avoid the danger, you'd have to stop at every intersection where the cross street had a stop sign and you didn't. And at every green light, in case somebody on the cross street runs the red light. That, I think, would be far more likely to get you hit than making a right turn without stopping.

*In the US, and vice versa, I assume, in countries where one drives on the left.

It was a stoplight, but it was the kind that has a stop sign, then a path that other cars might be on, then the stop light. And it was a right turn. According to a witness, this "phantom car" (no one got the plate because they drove away too fast) didn't even stop at that stop sign.

Mickey, I'm lost. I've never seen an intersection like the one you describe. Maybe it's a regional thing.

But my point is still valid: to completely avoid the danger of being hit by someone who's running a stop sign or red light, you would have to stop at every single intersection, including those at which you have the right-of-way. All those unnecessary stops would, IMO, be far more dangerous than the risk of someone else running the stop sign or light.

Lainie, I'm curious. Are you saying that in order to turn right on a stop sign there is no need to stop in the states?

In Canada, stop signs require you to stop regardless of direction of future travel.

The turning people I dislike are the ones that hit their brakes as they turn, so that they may be going 30 kmh into the turn, but they go immediately to 5 kmh through the turn. My coworker is one, and I cannot stand sitting in her huge SUV while she is making left turns.

Laine, right turn on red requires you to stop first.

quote:
You must always come to a complete stop and check that the way is clear before making a right turn on a red light.

The "turn right on red" rule was introduced as a petrol saving measure in the 1970's. It is designed to avoid cars sitting at lights wasting petrol when they could safely turn and continue on their way.

from this site.
Not official I know, but it was the first one that popped up. I can find the DMV page, if you need it.

I'm not taling about stop signs or red lights. I mean people turning onto a side road or into their driveways when there is no traffic coming from the opposite direction. Especially when the road or driveway is on the same side of the road they are driving on.

Another driving thing that bothers me is people who drive speed limit for a bit and then start slowing down and then speeding back up a bit. Makes me car sick to ride with them. I rode with an old man that drove like that for a trip that took about an hour and a half. I refused to ride with him ever again. I don't have to worry about that anymore since he died a while back. Some people should have their license revoked when they get really old. This man was about 90.

I come very close to an absolute stop turning into my driveway, which is narrow and fenced to the very edges (no, I didn't do that, I'm not that stupid). It's a choice between almost stopping (the difference probably wouldn't be discernable to a car following me) and ramming the very well embedded corner post of the fence. Been there, done that.

Also my dad

Mr. Screams and throws a tantrum like the world is ending when something can't be found in the first 15 seconds of seeking it out. Loudly accuse other family members of moving it, or even deliberately hiding it. Then act like it was no big deal when it's discovered it was right where you left it. Do this daily.

More from me, I can't stop thinking of these people.

Mr. I know you've worked here for 11 years, and have been trained to do this, but I am older and have more 'life experience' and even though I've never done this before, I know my way is best.

Ms. I'm going to be using my co-worker's desk while she's on vacation, and the way she has it set up is uncomfortable for me to use, so I'll change everything, and if she doesn't like it, tough.

Lastly, for now,

Mr. I'm having a lousy day today, so I'm not going to put the orange juice in the proper slot in the vending machine. I don't care that you want oj and all you get is crappy-tasting Powerade, and hahaha, I'm keeping your money.

Mr/Ms ‘ I drive a bigger car than you, so I’m gonna ignore road rules and then abuse you for not giving in to my intimidation’

Being pregnant has completely destroyed any reservations I’ve ever had about arguing with strangers for their stupidity. Yesterday on the way home from the hospital a situation with a truck driver and myself reached the point where he and I were both standing by our vehicles, yelling at each other and concerned strangers pulling over in case a witness was needed for any reason.

Oh, no. I have a big bug about trucks. I know everyone in texas has to have at least one truck, and its seems as if when you are in a little car, they want to roll right over you. weaving in lanes, never using signals, passing you and then slowing back down.... [Mad]

Oh, oh, we get plenty of very large trucks, AND SUVs here. And I hate them all.

We drive an Echo. I love my car, it gets awesome gas mileage, and it's got great handling.

What I hate? The asshat drivers of raised pickup trucks, or the dumbass SUV mommies who can't be bothered to a)learn how the SUV handles, and b)get OFF THE PHONE and drive, for God's sake.

Both types of drives weave in and out of traffic, change lanes with no signal, change lanes and try to take my rear quarterpanel off, think they're going to INTIMIDATE me by driving right up on my bumper, and flashing their brights in my rear view mirror.

Umm, doesn't work if I'm the only one in the car, and I don't have to worry about putting my daughter in danger. I have NO problem with slamming on my brakes in the middle of the freeway...just to prove a point.

Still, I guess they think that no one else on the road has any right to be there. Listen, Mr. I Drive A Useless H2, I have as much right to be here as you, and if you keep THAT up, you won't HAVE that H2 much longer, because either you'll wreck it, or it'll be impounded by the nice police officer who is not impressed by your penile replacement.

I wish they'd just all stay off the NFBSKing road.

I've got one!

Mr. Tricked Out His Car With A Muffler That Is So Loud That It Sets Off Every Car Alarm That It Passes. This guy also loooooves to drive his tricked out car. Drives it in and out of the parking lot right next to my apartment a couple times a day, setting off four or five car alarms at once as he goes. I know which car is his, and I know he parks in this lot, although he doesn't live in my complex (I asked the manager about him -- he knew who I was talking about immediately and hates him too). I'm on the verge of getting his liscence plate number or something, although I don't know what I'd do with it. I expect the police have better things to do with their time than to chase down jerks with oversized mufflers and tricked out cars.

I'm not even going to START on the people who feel that they neeeeed car alarms, despite the fact that this neighborhood is so incredibly safe that I once forgot to lock my car and left it, with my purse inside, for several days, after which I found it untouched. And never mind that their alarms are going off for dumb reasons so often that a thief could probably break into their cars and they'd never know.

DMV has an 800 number where you can anonymously report smogy cars, report his At worst you inconvenience him with a trip to a smog check station

People who wear sandals or flip-flops! I don't expect agreement on this, but I think humans have ugly feet. I know it's warm, and I know that shoes and socks are uncomfortable to wear because of that (I'm certainly uncomfortable). Still, I don't want to see your feet! Please, at least wear socks.

Let's just say that this particular guy won't be joining this group.

Mr I Am Older Than You Therefore I Know Best About Everything, Including Your Job

You are not a database developer. I am. Stop telling me how to develop databases. Just because you're 20 years older than me (and our DBA) doesn't mean you know how to do it. Believe me - YOU DON'T.

Silence should never under any circumstances be construed as agreement. A lot of the time, it's simply a reflection that someone just said something so stupid that no response could possibly do it justice. - Ramblin' Dave
