    Mad Maxine, the kamikaze shopping cart drivers at supermarkets. They exit aisles at warp speed and blow through intersections without the slightest thought that there just may be other people in the store. Even pit row has speed limits and common sense protocols to prevent collisions among Formula 1 race cars. I am aware that as a male, I am on their God driven turf, but man alive, they make those supermarket lanes dangerous! Recently I was stopped near the end of an aisle so that I could see if the main road aisle was clear for me to enter when Mad Maxine came flying around the corner. I had to jerk my cart clear of her path in order to keep her from running into me. She grunted something, obscene I'm sure, and gave me the stink-eye as if it was my fault.

    Narcissistic people who interrupt others to make sure their viewpoint is heard.

    This is timely. I was hanging with a group of associates yesterday and one, who's a very successful business owner would state "stop", multiple times, while placing his palm out, to interject his apparent superior counter point. It was incredibly rude and annoying.

    How about those crappy expanding hoses that explode the first time they see water!

    Or burp loudly and repeatedly while having a conversation with them.

    Just remembered this one when I stopped for donuts:

    People who leave the car running with nobody in it while they are in a store or whatever.

    "Punk" versions of songs. I used to be a practicing lousy guitarist and I discovered that I could do "punk" versions of songs. Then I asked myself "Why?".

    Another one: tailgaters on the highway. I had one on the way home tonight that was so close, I couldn't see his headlights in the rear view mirror. I contemplated opening the sunroof and flipping him off, but I doubt he would have seen it.

    ^ Commercials for drugs of any sort! I am so sick of "plaque psoriasis", "afib", and all of the other miscellaneous maladies.

    Then my favorite line in almost every drug commercial "Do not take Fukitol if you are allergic to Fukitol". Well, how would you know you are allergic to it unless you've already taken it?

    The term 'Human Nature" and folk that say 'It's my nature I can't change that' Or 'It's who I am'

    Like It's something unchangeable. Often used to justify poor or bad behaviour, and often used to resist change even if that change is actually a good change.

    Most of the time a more accurate term would be 'Human habit'

    . +1! Those commercials that run at prime-time and all of the various pills and potions that have to make kids wonder what all that stuff is about. Its uncomfortable and embarrassing when there are friends or family members present. And 'ya know, those darned maxi pad commercials dont work anyway. I haven't bought any more of them since they keep airing those commercials every few minutes. Phoey on 'em!

    Squirrels killing my conifers. I found countless ends of fir twigs again today on the ground. My conifers are already weak because they suffer from bark beetles.

    Dating agency commercials like "parship" with young women looking so extremely pretty as if they could date 10 partners daily - without dating agencies.

    Had a couple here at the office building, and they were so bad I finally brought in some oil and did it myself! They were not even in my work area, but one was a bathroom I use, and the other was down in a filing room - how do the file clerks not go insane? If I worked down there for one day I'd become crazed to the point of slicing off a piece of fat from one of those ladies and squeezing it onto the hinges.

    Hoses made so cheaply they can't resist kinking if you even look at them funny!

    If they're not already on, I like to turn on my lights at that point, which they think are brake lights, and if there's no one braking in front, they think you're crazy and they back up. :biggrin:
