    What sort of things bug you?

    Old people who walk in the middle of the isle in the supermarket and don't let anyone else pass. Yeah, I know they are old and slow, but they know that too. Move to the side!

    When someone's mobile rings and they stop dead in their track just to answer it

    Impatient people who don't realise we old farts have difficulty steering shopping trolleys down aisles so we stick to the centre so we don't knock all the cans off the shelf. :p

    If you really have that much trouble, have them deliver. It's free. Also, the Stop n Shop near me doesn't have those trolleys, this is Jersey, the stores are too cramped for that. :p

    They deliver for around $6.00 here, even so, we have to gather the groceries ourselves and pay for them at the checkout.

    Really? That's awful, what about people who can't go out? My upstairs neighbours is a disabled Vietnam vet, she can't go to the store :/

    Companies with through the roof profits who still raise their prices faster than inflation for critical services.

    I think buying groceries over the Internet is becoming more popular for reasons like that. My ex is partially disabled and government agencies pay for carers to help out. One takes him shopping every fortnight as well as supervises access visits with our daughter.

    Otherwise volunteers or family members help people in need.


    Daylight savings since I've had a school aged child pisses me off.

    People who think that not having to wait is a human right...like the person in line who is pissed off that the cashier is not going faster. They vocalize their ire, and it's just ridiculous. I can't tell you how many times I have seen this sort of thing. Actually, most impatience is annoying and unnecessary. What pisses me off more than that is if I catch myself feeling sorry for myself. It doesn't happen a lot, but when it does, it's just as ridiculous. There's a Cheryl Crow song called "Soak up the Sun" that is a good antedote when you find yourself in that situation.

    Along those lines, impatient people behind me at the checkout who either breathe down my neck or push their trolley into my butt as if that's going to make me be served any quicker.

    (Oops! Backcheck snuck in there, I was referring to Sandwich's post.)

    You know what's weird? I usually see lines of people like ten people long, yet there are usually at least two self checkouts completely free.

    Those checkout people piss me off too, the cashier probably makes minimum wage and has to deal with stupid people's crap all day long, and very few people ever thank them. The only people who ever say "thanks" or "have a nice day" are hippies, luckily around here they are everywhere around here.

    Pressing the back button during a good game of Mahjong, when you really just wanted to change tabs.

    Well, find the fucking gas pedal. LOL I only get tailgated when I'm tailgating some ass driving the speed limit or less. Why can't they equip minivans with rocket launchers.

    People that think whatever they're doing is more important than whatever you're doing. Which is everyone by the way .
    Empathy is dead....

    * Smokers who smoke in non-smoking designated areas

    * People who walk into you at the mall and don't apologize

    * People who take up two parking spots

    * Non handicap people parking in handicap spots

    * Hot days

    * Those stupid voice automated answering services for major companies that never understand what you say when you slowly and clearly say it

    I've seen people equip their mini vans with 20+ inch rims, lowered, tinted, sound system, crazy body modifications, and like 3 car seats for kids...
