OK! We're here, all comfy -so take
a seat - relax, take your shoes off
(or maybe not, ew) & get ready to
talk about a few of those things
in life that literally drive us NUTS!!! Mad

BUT- there is a catch!

We gotta take turns. We don't
want anyone going postal here
right???? :wink: :wink:
So essentially it goes like this - we
are each limited to ONE THING,
YES! just one per day, ONE! Exclamation Exclamation

I get to start.
I live in FL close to I-95 - THE east
coast major north-south
south - north interstate highway.
This time of year there are a
very large number of motorhomes,
RV's, campers, ancient schoolbuses
whatever - mostly heading south
at the moment. I don't object to
people from Canada, NY, NJ or
wherever getting out of the cold.
I only object when they drive in
the fast lane where the speed limit
is 70, they are doing 60 and most
everyone else is doing 80! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

You two have taken my Top Two!

People driving SUVs the size of a tank while they talk on the damn phone, probably about gas prices being too high.

"Suburban cowboys"
(i.e. People who live in the city & drive those AWFUL big, clunky 4 wheel drives around! They hog the roads, they're incredibly rude to us little people in little cars, they often have bull bars that can kill pedestrians on impact AND they never leave the city! And the guzzle fuel!
There! I feel better now! Very Happy

People who talk on their cell phones when they're driving, or in the supermarket, or at the doctor's office, etc., etc. Dang, they get on my nerves!!

Only one per day huh?

What I do not understand is why they have to talk so loud on cell phones. Do they really think we want to know their business. The ones who drive and talk are bad enough but frankly I am sick and tired of being almost run over in the grocery store by people chatting on their cells.

I agree, Joanne. Recently, I got behind a woman in the grocery store talking on her cell phone. When it came time to put her groceries on the conveyor belt, she just kept talking and unloading one thing at a time, pausing now and then to listen or talk. I considered helping her out with her groceries, but I would rather have snatched the dang phone from her and thrown it as far as I could. One of these days!

Same kind of think here like we don't have enough problems just doing the grocery store, so stressful for me. Hmm, add that to a pet peeve having to go grocery shopping.

Elderly people in huge cars who wait until you are almost at their intersection, pull out right in front of you, and then proceed to drive at 25 mph! Evil or Very Mad

Why do some people blaaaat their car horns the INSTANT the traffic light turns green? What do they POSSIBLY think that is going to accomplish? They're going to get home 3 nanoseconds faster?

The fact that people who can't even read the fricking road signs are given drivers licenses. I hate to say it, but the asian drivers here in the bay area are really, lousy drivers. Give them a cell phone and an SUV and you've got a full blown lethal weapon.

Oh Pueo, do you REALLY???
I assure you I had no intention
of adding one whit more of
peevishness to your life than
you already have, honest!
How are you anyway?
I've been missing 2 weekends
in a row - so, I miss out on all
of what all has been going on
around the home fires.
