The fact that you can take a learners permit test in 3 languages, yet all of our street signs are in ****ING ENGLISH! We wonder why people don't know how to drive, they need to learn the language 1st...

99% of radio FM radio stations and the people that listen to them.

How many times do you want to hear the same Eagles songs that have been played the last 30 years. In general most music that gets on the radio is crap.

Today I was putting away my lawn mower (I keep it behind the TJ), and I had my garage door opener in my pocket with the clip hanging out of my pocket. I got too close to my TJ and the clip scratched the TJ's paint on the rear corner. And it didn't even happen on a trail.

I hate working retail. Well, its not really the job itself, it the dumb *** customers.

It pisses me off when someone comes and doesn't even try to find the product on their own. The come in "Hey, where's your batteries?" or "Where's the pharamcy?" Look people Rite Aid isn't that big of a store, and see that asile right infront of my register that says batteries on it? And there's a huge sign in the back, part of it is blocked, but I can see PHA and ACY, I wonder what it says.

I don't have a problem if somebody actually has looked first and then asks where it is.

Next is those people who don't understand how to wait their turn. I'll be helping a customer and some person comes in, "hey, excuse me, hey where's your phone cards, hey I'm talking to you." Get in line and wait until I'm done. Plus the phone cards are in a big blue rack in front of my register, right before the batteries.

Oh and if you have a 50 or 100 dollar bill, don't break it on me with a $2 dollar purchace (yes it happens all the time). If its under $20, you pay with a 20 you *******. And I am not a ****ing bank, there is one next door. You can not have $300 in cash back. The max is $50, granted if there have been $50 worth of purchases made with cash.

And you are ****ing retarted if you wait at a register with no light on, and no body behind the counter. People will wait at register 1 while I am at 4 (there are only four ****ing registers so its not like it is hard to find me). They will sit there and stare at me, like come help me, while I have people in my line. I know you want your ****ing photos or ciggrets, you come wait in my damn line because that is where I can rig you up. And when you do finally decided to come over since nobody is there to help you, don't yell at me asking "Is there anybody working over there?" because you know the answer is no.

Last, the thing that pisses me off the most, is those *****y college girls that didn't pick up her birth control before the pharamacy closed. No, they will not let me, a low paid college kid, to break into the pharamacy to get your birth control. You can however, buy some condoms.

Pulling over and slowing is fine. These people screech over and slam on the brakes. Yesterday a guy almost sideswiped me trying to come over. There is absolutely no reason to give that much leeway. Also, I don't think that emergency vehicles can turn on a dime, so if they're doing 70 coming the other way, I doubt they're going to be responding to something right in front of me, unless one of the cars that was moving along with traffic called them and never stopped.

Giving leeway and slowing I have no problem with. Hauling butt off the road and almost causing 10 other wrecks in the process is a "Standard Thing that Makes Me Mad."

Speaking of trees and bushes, does anywhere else live in a city where they're very fond of planting vegetation right where it either obstructs road signage (like stop signs) or makes it impossible to see far enough down the road to see if there's anything coming?

Yes, it's very pretty, but if it causes a *******ed collision I want it gone, NOW.

I second many of the things already posted...

but adding to the list having to listen to people who brush their teeth loudly (akin to the listening to someone eat).

It's gross.

oh its funny you should mention the ones that force thier way in front of you, hate that as well. recently i watched my buddy solve that very same senario in his 95 yj ( 5.5 inches of lift) on 35's. him and his brother are bull riders, had a competition. after it was over, traffic was BAD from everyone trying to squeeze onto the same road. hes hugged up behind a dodge and this stupid kid whos mad he cant cut in line, flips him the bird and tries to FORCE his mustang in front of him. my buddy says no way with that aditude and yells no to him. kids gets even more mad and rams his front corner into my buddies nicely shined up tire, we heard the metal crunching as we set in shock that he would do that to his own car!!,

So my buddy answers back by locking it in 4-lo and lets his 35X12.50's crawl OVER his hood destroying the whole front. emo kid jumps out in a rage ready to fight until they step down and he sees hes taking on guys who ride 2000lbs of very angry beef "for fun", he changed his mind. before anything can be said 3 drivers from other vehicles we didnt even know told the kid not to try any lying to the police cause they all witnessed it and would testify if need be to him in a rage hitting the jeep. never heard anything from it. some lessons are learned the hard way
