Things that are really bugging me lately:

1. People who go more then 10mph under the speed limit. I am so sorry you have nothing better to do then sight see while driving, but I'm kind of in a hurry. Speed up or get out of the way! Geez.

2. People who leave/drive their shopping carts on the wrong side of the aisle in stores. This is not Britain!!! KEEP RIGHT! (this also goes for people using staircases or coming in or out of doors)

3. Cashiers who open new lines and don't let the people who have been waiting in line go first. Why should people who just walked up go before the folks who have already been waiting?? How is that fair?

4. Repetitive paper work for bureaucratic systems. How many freakin' times do I really need to give the same people my address and phone number? It is the same as it was 2 minutes ago!! What is wrong with you people? ( New York state is THE WORST about this).

5. Lawyers and pharmaceutical companies who advertise on radio and television. Talk about declasse! Encouraging idiocy and greed is just plain wrong!

6. People who are so politically correct that they cannot give a straight answer to a question if their lives depended on it!

7. Civil Servants and union memembers who are protected even when they are obviously incompetent. If you do not do your job you should lose your job. I don't care how long you have been there. Am I wrong here?

8. Rude people. When did good manners go out of fashion??? I'm not talking using the wrong fork at the dinner table...I'm asking why people can't say please, thank you or excuse me. Wanna know why we have people shooting people in traffic jams???? Because people are not kind to one another anymore. Kindness breeds good manners.

Well, that's all I got. But it's late and I'm tired. What is ticking you off lately? Come know you'll feel better when you get it off your chest.

I agree. I told Butch just yesterday that I have had it. I'm going to start saying what I feel and not what others want me to say. When the lady who walks her dog on my side of the street and lets him pee on my bushes I'm going to say something. Maybe say "Hey dont let him pee on my bushes as I dont pee on yours. And when the next driver pulls into the parking spot crooked and leaves me no room to get in my auto I feel like staying there to let them know they should drive in the lines. Makes me so mad. I get so mad when drivers are so close to me and they get mad when I put on my directional to say, back off I'm turning and they act like I'm at fault for them having to break. And I am moving along at a good speed. Oh how did it become so nasty out there?

I agree with you, especially about the drivers. Gees. The lines are also not funny. Yes, say next in line. Of course, some people would not listen anyway. It does seem easy to say please and thank you, but not for some.

I can't stand the pharmacy ads. It's just a bunch of money-mongering, and then people think they have imaginary illnesses, or that they know better than their doctors and insist on the new drug, which may or may not be good for them. (Although, I must say I do get a little giggle out of the quick rundown of side effects they always list.
