That's what I'm talking about, too. Of course you need to stop if there's a stop sign or red light. But if there is neither, you don't need to come to a complete stop, although as Seaboe points out, you may need to slow way down if the driveway or street is hard to get into. This isn't just my opinion: it's what I was taught in a formal driver's ed class and what the Ohio driver's handbook says. So perhaps other states' laws may vary, but assuming there are no stop lights or signs, and no physical obstacles to the turn, I really don't think there's any need to come to a complete stop for a right turn.

Which reminds me of another one: Mr./Ms. "I'm going to slam on my brakes for this turn, then turn on my signal. Just because you know in advance that you're going to be braking, why should you warn other drivers? [Roll Eyes]

i explained 3 times that there's no one in that department at the moment. what do you want me to do, go and book your job in myself? there is literally no one in the office i can put you through to. shouting at me that you want us on site tomorrow is not going to get us there any quicker.

As a non-driver I have to say overly considerate drivers.

Once I was waiting to cross a two-way road (no crossing in the vicinity). A car approaching on my side of the road stopped and started waving me across the road, despite the fact that there was still a steady stream of traffic going the other way. After a matter of seconds I could tell the driver was getting fed up because I wasn't willing to stand in the middle of the road and wait. After a few more seconds, he carried on his way.

It's probably my problem. I get confused when drivers are nice instead of being b*****ds like the rest of them. So, drivers, you just get on with your business (i.e. generally ignoring pedestrians) and I'll get on with mine.

I'll admit, I'm wearing sandals right now, but other than right now, you'd love me. After years of dancing on pointe, my toes are messed up (I won't go into detail), and I much prefer wearing my black with pink striping Vans, or my black Chuck Taylor low-tops, than sandals. With the exception of my Naots. But even those, I won't wear on a regular basis.

Mr. I'll mock what you say, then when I see you're getting testy, say "It's a joke. I love you". I'm finally getting to the point in the relationship where little things like this REALLY piss me off, even though he says he'll stop doing it. I really need to tell him off. Really REALLY need to. Especially since this is the last weekend we'll see each other until July, unless he stops by my home on the way back to Radford from Pennsylvania. Damn travelling during the most stressful time of the semester...

Ooh! Ooh! Can I start going off on my at-work rants, even though I haven't started yet?

Mr or Ms. Well I've waited in line for 20 minutes and now you're saying they have to leave?

Mr or Ms. Oh, come on! One more family? My kid's waited his/her whole life to see him! (And yet, your kid is 3 years old.)

Mr or Ms. Why did that family get to cut, and we can't, then? Because, sir or ma'am, that family has a kid that is DYING. Don't you get it? We'll let you cut when your kid has given a timeframe of how much longer they have to live, too.

Mr or Ms. Well, I don't want to wait in line. Let's see if I can get a good picture of me standing kind of close to them, and just as they turn, take the picture You assholes. There's a line. USE IT.

Even though I haven't seen it I was quite aware that Jarhead is a war movie.

All I really want is for people who have the right-of-way to use it and not do something else. How the hell do I know what you're planning if you do something completely different? At a four-way stop, if it's your turn to go, do it. At a stoplight without an advance green, if the light changes and you're going straight, just go. Don't wave me on, don't just sit and stare and expect me to figure out what you're doing. Rights-of-way are there for a reason. If we all go by the same rules, we'll all know what to expect and go accordingly. Really.

Today's favorites:
Mr. and Ms. But I Have To See It For a Class!
and their friends
Mr. and Ms. You Don't Have any Tickets Left?
Mr. and Ms. I Called Yesterday And You Said There Were Tickets
Mr. and Ms. My Friend Is In The Show And I Promised Him I'd Come And See It, Can't I Stand In The Back?
Mr. and Ms. If I Get A Standby Ticket Will I Get To See The Show?


Let's review:
Tickets have been on sale since last June.
You did not just this minute find out about the class assignment.
There were in fact tickets available yesterday. We sold them all. Sorry we didn't keep one for you.
Yes, "sold out" means we don't have any tickets left.
Your friend knows you are too much a slacker to get a ticket to see him act. He will not be surprised.
The fire marshal says you may not stand in the back, and so do I.
If you get a standby ticket you have to, uh, stand by. I have no way of knowing if there will be any returned tickets or unclaimed seats.

Wow, I feel much better.

Nope. [Razz]

But just so you know I watch with fairness, I argue with the refs and announcers no matter which game I am watching if I think they were wrong. Well, not the CBC announcers so much, but I used to subject Gary Thorne and Bill Clement to long diatribes. Too bad they couldn't hear me!

One of my favorites is Mr and/or Ms. "I'm going to tailgate you all the way up this hill, ignore your turn signal and decreasing speed, and then nearly rear-end you in surprise as you turn into your driveway". Especially when they follow it up by glaring/yelling at you/honking their horn. Well geez fella, if you were paying attention you'd have had SOME clue what I was going to do! Decreasing speed, flashing the brake lights at you, signalling.. what else do I need to do?

A close cousin of this person is the "Let's accelerate recklessly as we drive up this blind hill!" fellow. There's an intersection right at the top of it. It's been there since the town was founded. And whether you believe it or not, there's always the chance that someone's sitting up there waiting for oncoming traffic to clear so that they can execute a turn!

Another favorite is the people who insist on parking in the fire lane in front of stores. I don't mind the ones there to pick up/drop off the elderly/pregnant/or others who would be ill-served by a walk across the huge lot. That doesn't bother me. What gets me is the ones who park there just because they're apparently entitled to do so. Perhaps there's a reason for this behavior in many of these folks that I can't see, but somehow I doubt that most of them (mostly teens and college-age kids) have any condition other than laziness. And sadly, you can complain to the store managers, but they can't/won't actually go through with paging the people to move their cars or having the vehicles towed.

Ms Math Teacher has been redeemed. 'We have a quiz on Friday' and 'The review will be a quiz grade' are not the same thing.

How about those people who have their blinker on long before they turn? Or those who slow down to read the roadsign and then speed back up because they are totally lost. You can find step by step directions with maps on the internet. Use it.

I can see it. Can you?

I'm with you on this one!

And speaking of the greatest game in the world, here's a guy I hate: Mr. I know I'm over thirty five and we're playing in a one horse town but there must be an NHL scout in the crowd so I'm going to slap at the goalie's glove and dig my stick between his legs to show that I'm a real go getter.

Let's get this clear:
1 There is no NHL scout
2 We all have jobs to go to
3 My glove is not padded on the back and I need that hand
4 I am not padded from behind and am rather attached to that piece of flesh your stick is driving into.

and last but not least

5 I have a bigger stick and can skate faster mad than you can scared!

Ms. (but it's often been a Mr.) There's a vehicle blocking my lane, so I have the right to come into your lane and expect you to give way. Umm, no, I have the right of way in MY lane. If there is something blocking your lane and you have to go around it, YOU have to wait until the way is clear to do so. Honking your horn and glaring at me because I continued to drive toward you in MY lane is soooo not yielding. And it's not like you couldn't see me, we were heading in opposite directions, so we were heading TOWARD each other, doofus!

That gives me an idea for a new math problem.

Mr Jones and Mr Smith live 2 mile apart. They both get into their car at the same time and travel towards eachother on a two lane road. Mr Jones travels at a sedate 30 mph while Mr Smith travels at a suicidal speed of 50mph. Right before they meet, Mr Smith encounters a vehicle turning right in his lane then pulls around him plowing into Mr Jones. How many EMT's does it take to pry Mr Smiths dumb ass out of his car?

Oh my, I've got a few of these!

Mr. I need to drop off my girlfriend here so I'm going to stop right in the middle of the road and wait for her to come 'round and kiss me goodbye, even though I'm exactly two feet away from a parking space and you're waiting for me to move

Mr. and Ms. We can't possibly think of a more efficient way to do this group project than to sit here all together and research and make the powerpoint, and no, it wouldn't be smarter to do our own parts separately on our own time, why, do you have a life or something?

Mrs. As a teacher I feel it is my duty to inform you that your major requires X (which it doesn't) and consequently freak you out and make you fear that you won't be graduating on schedule, even though all of this is none of my business because I don't even teach in your department

Mr. and Ms. I disagree with your country's tipping customs, so I'm going to stiff you. Then when you come to visit my country, I'll call you an ugly American.

Mr. I'm attracted to you, therefore you must be attracted to me. If you decline my offer to buy you a drink, or my request that you drop your pants right here on the dance floor and engage in relations with me, you must be a frigid bitch. Or a dyke.

Ms. Hijack every single class discussion on gender with a diatribe on how women are oppressed and therefore can't be held responsible for their actions. Because arguing that women are helpless is going to advance the cause of feminism.

Mr. and Ms. I'm bisexual, therefore everyone on earth must be bisexual. People who claim otherwise are repressing half of their sexuality. And I know what that sexuality is better than they do.

Mr. and Ms. Too lazy to remove their screaming child from the restaurant, movie theater, or concert hall.

Mr. and Ms. I smoke a pack a day (and buy big brands a pack at a time, to ensure maximum expense) and then complain about not getting enough financial aid.

Ms. I can't believe you won't let me crash at your place indefinitely after my roommates kicked me out for blowing my rent money on new clothes and I'm too cool to live with my parents for a while while I get my act together, so it's all your fault I'm homeless.

There are others, I'm sure...

Yeah, but it took them four and a half periods in their own arena to do it. Just wait till they hit Edmonchuk!! Go Oilers!!

Esprise Me, I know what you mean about the bisexual thing. I have a few friends who are bi, and luckily they don't usually go down that route, but I've definitely heard it before and it annoys me. (Believe me, after some of the experiences I've had with men I sometimes think it would be easier to date women, but I'm just not attracted to other females. Really.)

I have a few others of my own to add to the list:

Professor "I'm Going To E-mail The Outline That I Expect You All To Print Out And Bring To Class Today Fifteen Minutes Before Said Class Starts." Now maybe I'm being a bit of a hypocrite on this one, since I tend to be quite a procrastinator myself, but really, this is starting to get annoying. This class is my first one of the day, so usually I'm all right, since the lecture hall is only about a ten-minute walk from my dorm. However, there are a lot of people who have class directly before this one and don't have time to access a computer, check e-mail, and print out the outline in the ten minutes or less between classes.


Mr. or Ms. "I Hate [Artist/Band/Movie/Whatever] So Therefore It Is A Universal Truth That [He/She/It/They] Suck(s), And If You Disagree You Are Wrong And Stupid." People who present their opinion as fact and ridicule those who disagree with them really, really, REALLY irritate me. I should probably stop there, before I type anything seriously NFBSK that I'm going to regret later. [Wink]


Edited because Mozilla apparently hates me and cut off half of my post.

I was just thinking about this one earlier. Generally I'm the live-and-let-live type. If someone says they really like a show/band/movie I don't like, I'll just say "I don't like that show/band/movie." Is it so unreasonable to expect the same from others?

"I like Rammstein."
"Rammstein sucks!"
"'k, I won't play my CDs around you without headphones."
"Only losers listen to Rammstein!"
[Roll Eyes] "So I'm a loser. I won't hang around you anymore and tarnish your precious reputation by listening to music I like as opposed to the flavor-of-the-month."
"You should listen to Green Day!"
"...goodbye."

I've been through this before, multiple times. *sigh* It was one of the factors leading up to the 'eep scary outcast girl' rep I built up at one point. Yes, I'm scary because I won't listen to Green Day.


My addition to the list: Mr. I want to have a bunch of dogs, but I won't train them at all because that's unnatural! There used to be one of those down the street. The dogs got loose all the time, and they were scary. We'd call animal control on 'em if we saw them on our part of the street.

Mr./Ms I have no money for food, but I have plenty of beer and cigarettes.
I understand that these can be addictions, but seriously, food is more important.

Mr. and Ms. I'm bisexual, therefore everyone on earth must be bisexual. People who claim otherwise are repressing half of their sexuality. And I know what that sexuality is better than they do.
I used to know someone like this. He's been the basis for a lot of my posts in this thread.

The related, obnoxious types:

  • Mr. I'm Gay, So Everyone Must Be (at least a little) Gay;
  • Mr. Anyone Can Be Straight With Enough Prayer/Meditation/Medication/Whatever.
