while at the movies

Chair kickers. What's with this insanely rude phenomenon??? I keep having the grave misfortune of sitting in front of self absorbed types who kick my chair, repeatedly and often without a pattern or beat. Drives me stark raving mad. STOP IT!

office & email

Speaker phone. The ultimate lame power trip.

Ok, so you want to send a group email. No problem. Either use an email application designed for managing lists or put all the addresses in the bcc: line so the rest of us don't have to see the giant list you sent it to and so that no one decides to use that list for their own use. We all get enough junk mail, thanks.

while driving

Don't pull up to the stop light in the left hand lane and as the light turns green decide to put on your left turn signal. Think ahead so the rest of us have a chance to change lanes and keep driving! Arrrggg, that one really riles me up.

Blocking my driveway or parking on the sidewalk on either side of my driveway (which is a no parking zone — see the no parking signs every ten feet?) making it impossible for me to get into my driveway even though YOU THINK you haven't actually blocked the driveway.

Zipper merge? heard of it? don't be an ass, you haven't gotten far enough ahead and certainly haven't gained any karma points. I'm thinking it would be a good idea to connect license plate numbers with cell phone numbers that way we can call you up and bitch you out.

irritating housekeeping

Things that really bug...
Toilet paper that rolls under rather than over.

Who doesn't know that end of the pillow with tag goes into the pillowcase first?

Wet towels or shoes on the bed. Enough said!

while at a restaurant

When a waiter removes a finished plate while someone is still eating! Uh hem, DO NOT REMOVE anything from the table until everyone has clearly stopped eating.

When the waiters asks "would you like change?" How rude to assume that the extra money left isn't because we'd like change but because uh huh,we like to tip 2000 percent!. Cha-ching! Ya, that's the sound of your tip going down.
