I have a couple.

*people who drive around the parking lot looking for a parking spot as close as possible instead of just taking what's available and walking.
*people who wait for a spot to open up, even thought there is a perfectly good spot open right next to the one they are waiting for.
*turn signals turned on at exactly the moment the person is turning or turned on 3 blocks away.
*people who drive slower than the speed limit.
*people who are to impatient to wait for me to pull out of my parking spot.Instead they decided to speed past me forcing me to slam on my breaks to avoid hitting them.


Can't you tell I had a great driving day today?

1. People who are constantly in "rush" mode for no real reason. My Dh does this and though I understand it's a product of his job it drives me nutso!

2. Dirty socks laying on the floor. Ewww.

3. Stepping in something sticky/wet/grimy when I walk into the kitchen.

4. Mean spirited gossipy back stabbing

5. Fatigue!

1. People who act entitled to stuff and who don't take responsibility for their actions.
2. People who talk on their cell phones and text message while driving.
3. People who call and don't leave voice mail, and then get mad when you don't call them back.

1. People who say that they're starving: Uh, no you're not-you're just hungry.
2. Entitlement
3. Dh leaving dirty towels or sweaty hats on our door handles. Ewww.
4. When people try to "out do" each other or make anything and everything a competition: My kid did this, I drive this car, DC had their birthday party here, etc.

When my boss ASSUMES that I'll work late and therefore doesn't find other coverage.

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

People who come to a COMPLETE stop before turning RIGHT. Right.

People who ignore DH when he holds the door open for them.

People who look at me like I have 3 heads or completely ignore me when I smile and say hello to them.

Authority figures who punish or address the entire group rather than the one person who is being a problem. (In other words, having to sit through reprimand or punishment for something I know I didn't do.)

People who won't let me merge. Or see my turn signal and speed up to close the gap so I can't merge. Give me a break!

1. When people are in an aisle at the store, and have their cart right next to them blocking the rest of the aisle (Especially around the holidays) Even if they are the only one in the aisle, they take up the whole thing.

2. People who don't use their turn signal

3. People who cruise up the shoulder of the road when it goes down to one lane, and then expect you to let them over

4. People who are mean to their children
