    As used in a different thread, the term "life hack" bothers me. As a computer professional (and hobbyist before I earned my degree), I guess the new use of the word "hack" is what annoys me, as it seems to draw on the idea of computer hacking and not cutting, bad reporting nor taxi-cabs.

    Heloise simply called them hints.

    Oh, if where going to get into words and there use that bothers us I have a couple of big ones that really anger me when some dolt comes up to me and uses them.
    First ones "DUDE", does anyone one know the real meaning of this, in the day we referred to the inexperienced riders as Dudes, Green Horns, etc. Every time some one calls me this I look around and back at them and say, "No DUDES here!"
    The second one is "Bro" ,"Brother" and the way it's said. I'm not your BRO! and I'm not your Brother! and most the time I thank God I'm not when I'm approached and referred to this.
    Just irritates me to the point of wanting to punch the idiot right in the face. I don't know why, just does.

    Reminds me of ads back in the '60s for Admiral living color televisions, which we could only watch on our cruddy little B & W Sony portable.

    Pop-up videos. If I want to listen to what they have to say I'll click the video, It's especially irritating if music is being played from the computer while I'm cruising the net and someone starts babbling over the music.

    Side note: interesting how close cruising the net and cursing the net is.

    People that bring toddlers (or babies) to non-kids movies. Our viewing of Tomb Raider was peppered with a toddler running up and down the isle behind us, grabbing the bar that separates the rows and then bouncing back and forth going "ahh, ahhhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh,"

    When you are driving and the person in the next lane is multiple car lengths back but as soon as you flick on your turn signal you see their car surge as they floor it, trying to block you.

    And people that pass you and then slow down below what your speed is. I have seriously passed the same car 5 or 6 times with my cruise control set the entire time.

    I'm with you on this one.
    I don't care how fast or slow the other guy wants to drive, but pick a speed and stick to it.
    Brings to mind the line I saw somewhere: "Lead, follow, or get out of the way".

    Amazingly, my '93 Buick LeSabre HAD a chipped key. The starter went out a few years ago, so my brother in law replaced it for me. Got it done, went to start the car, and "security" kept flashing at us. My mechanic replaced the ignition with a regular ignition that doesn't require a chipped key. I'm sure that wouldn't even be an option on a newer vehicle.

    My new Honda Civic has electric windows that don't work after you've turned off the car. Oh, they do if you haven't opened a door, but if you walk around to the other side to get something out and realize you left a window down, well, on my old car I could reach over, stick the key in, flip it to ACC and roll up the window. New car has pushbutton ignition, ACC is one push w/o pushing the brake pedal, so I can do it from the other side, but guess what...windows don't work in ACC mode! Gotta walk all the way back around, sit in the driver's seat, push the brake, START THE ENGINE, then you can close your fucking window. Also, after starting, it's a full 30 sec before the electronic screen gizmo will let me turn on or off the radio or change the station. FFS.
