My new pet hate is Ms's (group of Ms) We Are Going To Talk Throughout the Entire Movie and Giggle at Completely Inappropriate Times. We Will Then State Loudly At the End of the Movie That It Sucked, Even Though the Rest of the Theatre Clearly Liked It.

Seriously, if you have something to say to your firend during a movie, whisper. If you don't like horror movies and think they're funny, please wait until they come out on DVD to laugh at them at home with your friends. And lastly, wait until you EXIT. THE. THEATRE. to talk about how bad the movie was.

Teenagers who think they invented sex and all its accompanying positions. It bugged me enough when I was a teenager and my friends had this attitude, but it bothers me more now that I'm an adult.

It's bad enough I have to turn away from your public groping and smooching. But when you're so involved with your PDAs that you walk off with my grocery cart (and I have to shout to get your attention), you should have really stayed home in bed.

How do you grope/smooch a palm pilot?

Mrs. I'm from the church and bringing supper since you're dad's so sick but I can't walk good so come out to my car and bring bowls so you can spoon your supper out of my pots.

Mrs. [same person as above, having decided to walk in anyway] Why don't you hire someone to clean up the kitchen? If I ever get disabled I'm going to hire someone to clean my house.

Thanks for the food. We didn't ask for your help, but since you were in the kitchen, why didn't you pick up a rag and start cleaning??

Anya, I'm sorry you're having to deal with such annoying behavior. Sometimes people simply don't know how to handle a grieving situation.

I know people want to feel like they're helping, but honestly if I were sick or hurt, I'd just want everyone to leave me alone until I got better! I almost feel like it puts more stress on the hurt/sick person having to put up with all these "helpers" sometimes.

Mr/Ms I know there are marked bicycle lanes, and I know it's the law that I have to wear a helmet, but I'll just ride my bike on the sidewalk and yell at pedestrians to get out of my way. You can't complain, cause I'm riding a bike and not polluting so nyah nyah.

Sure, go ahead.

Hope you don't mind that I'll be taking BP here on the sidewalk.

Mr I don't want to dirty up the inside of my car my putting my cigarette into the ash tray, so instead I'll just flick it out the window and crap out the entire outdoors and if I'm lucky I might even start a cool fire. Neat!

I actually had one of these NFSKBers hit my windshield with a cigarette butt one time. I only remember a few times that I have been that mad. I want to install a small tactical nuke to the front of my car. You know, one that will just vaporize the idiot in front of me so I can continue driving through the dust on my merry way. As far as I am concerned, we have to share the outdoors. I wish I could find these guys and dump something equally disgusting all over their front yard and front stoop. Like sanitary napkins or something, which I think are just as gross as some nasty cigarette butt that those jerks just spent the last few minutes breathing their filthy, tarry, rotten lung juice through.

Dog Owner who let his/her dog poop on the sidewalk and didn't clean it up.

Driver whose immediate reaction to any unanticipated event on the freeway is to slam on the brakes.

Driver who routinely comes to a complete stop at the end of an unmetered freeway on-ramp, even if the right lane is wide open for him/her to merge.

Driver in the right lane of the freeway who refuses to let oncoming traffic merge into the lane. Won't move over, won't slow down, won't speed up.

Mr. "I'm going to let my dog shit in your yard and not clean it up." As much vitriol as I have for the asshats who flick cigarette butts, I have more for these people. I'd like to dump my daughter's diaper pail in their yards and see how they like it.

Even worse is Mr. "I'm going to send my child out to walk the dog without any way to clean up after it." Way to teach responsibility! Not only are you a bad neighbor, you're an irresponsible parent! Way to go!

Ohio's Responsible Driver's Manual says that traffic trying to merge onto the freeway should accelerate to match the existing freeway traffic's speed. Arizona's Drivers manual says the same thing. And during times of high traffic, there isn't always room to move over for incoming traffic like they suggest.

So the merging car is supposed to match the speed of the traffic already on the freeway. In addition, how is the driver of a car already on the freeway to know if the driver of a merging car is speeding up to match speeds behind them, in front of them, or is going to take the next exit and won't even merge at all? Each of these situations requires a different response in speed if the freeway traffic is required to merge. And since the merging car doesn't know what the freeway car is going to do, it raises even more issues.

But if the freeway traffic is supposed to maintain speed, then the merging car (who knows exactly what he intents to do) knows what is going on. And so the merging car knows to speed up to merge ahead, slow down to merge behind, or maintain speed to get off at the next exit.

Mr or Ms The middle lane is the slow lane

We have several 6 lane highways in the St. Louis area. As in 3 lanes going one way and 3 lanes going the other. Many people drive slowly in the middle lane causing people to pass on both the left and the right, which is actually pretty dangerous. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I always thought the far left lane was for passing, the middle lane was for going normal speed, and the far right lane is the slow lane, which stands to reason as people are entering the highway on the right and aren't always able to get up to traffic speed before the entrance ramp ends. Is my vision of organized highway driving just really skewed?

I could be wrong, too, but I think it's actually supposed to be that the far left lane is for passing, and the right two lanes are both slow lanes.

Sounds like my high school French teacher. [Roll Eyes] I learned practically no French in his class, because for the entire 90 minute class period he would blather on and on, in English, about stuff that had NOTHING to do with French language/culture/anything. This wasn't a rare occurrence, either - he did this EVERY class period. It was so bad that one time when the vice principal came in to "observe" our class, she fell asleep within five minutes. [Eek!] No kidding.

And to make matters worse, when my mom went in to talk to him on parent-teacher conference day and express concerns about his (lack of) teaching, he spent the entire time bitching and moaning about how the school system screwed him over and didn't pay him enough and so he had to work two jobs, blah blah blah... [Roll Eyes] (My mom and I both agreed that if anything, the school system was grossly OVER-paying him.) [Mad] I HATE people like that, and I think that it's especially awful if they're teaching. To bore people on your own time is one thing, but to supposedly be in charge of educating students and instead waste their time with completely irrelevant bullshit is even worse. [flame]

Don't know if any of these were covered yet...soo...

Props her feet up on the empty seat next to me during a lecture Happend during art history. Got so bad that I swiched seats during the break. Please don't do that, it's rude and it makes me want to knock your feet off the chair.

Mr./Ms. Bad BO Another reason why I moved my seat. The homless people that wander the South Loop smell better than what ever that funk was. Ick!

Chatty people in the back The teacher is talking. Yes the lecture might be a tad boring (I dozed off a few times myself, but it was mostly the cold meds doing that) but some people do care about what she's saying, thank you.

Music on full blast at 2 in the morning Do the words "Quite Floor" mean anything to you? One of my roomates is gulity of this too*. This goes for those people who have loud conversations. These walls are very high and they echo, I can hear just about every word of your conversation.

Vandalizers of school property or just property in general. I know that grafftti is an art and this is an art school (and an urban one at that), but there is a time and place everything and ecthing your name on the wall in the stairwell, or worse yet windows outside the buildings, is not one of them.

Friend that's holding a grudge for no real reason at that. I moved on, why haven't you? I sense jelousy.

And that's all I can squeeze out of my brain right now. I'm sure there are more. [Razz]

*ETA: Got a good story about this one. There was a knock at my apartment at around 1AM. It was our neighboor from down the hall. She asked me to turn the music down and it was roomate A's music, not mine. Now her room is right next to the door and mine is near the back. She had her music loud enough so that she couldn't hear someone knocking on the door a good 6 feet away! It also took me a few times to knock on the bedroom door before she heard me. Luckly she turned it down without much argument.

Related is Driver who feels that he should use all available merge space as road and not attempt to merge until all available road is gone. Why do these people not understand the concept that the merging lane is there for them to use to merge into traffic and is not just an extra lane until it runs out? I don't know how many times I've seen this in front of me: car in left lane, semi in right lane, car coming down entrance ramp — instead of speeding up or slowing down to get around the semi in time, this person uses the entire lane until it's gone, then nearly causes an accident because the semi can't get out of the way because there's a car on the left and it can't move over. This can be avoided if the person merging actually merges when there's a spot open instead of waiting until the last possible second.

It also cracks me up when, at the convergence of two interstates about a half an hour south of where I am, there are people who make the merge, then change into the far right lane, right at the sign that says "Right Lane Ends."

I now actually long for the days in middle school where no gum was allowed and the closest thing you could have to food was water or candy that the teacher gave you.

Edit: Because berating someone for "talking with their mouth open" doesn't make much sense.

DJ Motorola-on-the-Subway, the guy who thoughfully shares a poor-quality, ringtone-esque version of Sean Paul's new song at a volume audible in every corner of a crowded rush-hour F train. On repeat. All the way to Brooklyn.

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.

On the filp side of that coin, there's Mr/Ms I'm going to keep turning into the street, never mind that there is a group of people trying to cross when a WALK sign is lit. We're pedestrans, not potental road kill.

Another one stops their car right on the double white lines/crossing bars. You stop at the first line, not the second moron! Those are there so people who choose not to drive gas gussling SUV's can go places safely. There are other modes of transport besides cars you know.

How's about:

Misters and Misses Like oh my gosh I haven't seen you in forever we should totally stand right here at the intersection of the sidewalk and catch up!
I'm not trying to push a stroller or anything here. No, don't bother moving, I'll just trek through the mud. Thanks.

Mr. I think I'll park on the left side of this narrow road, even though I can see that the entire right side is lined with cars, and it's going to be nearly impossible for anyone to drive down the center with me parked here.
I'm glad my husband can maneuver our car better than I can! I'd have just been stuck there all day. My husband commented that if we were still driving our old beater car, he'd love to just "accidently" scrape the side of that jerk's car with our bumper as we squeezed past.

Ah, the blasting music at all hours. I can totally relate to that. The last semester I lived in a dorm was like that. I was in a different dorm than I had been the previous semesters. Constant high volume rap music plus the lingering odor of pot were reasons I spent most of the time with my friends at my old dorm. I usually just slept in my room. Most of the time I was in class, at work, or with my friends.
