    Please....no political stuff. We have other forums for that. :D

    Here are mine:

    &#8226;I really hate the idiots on the Weather Channel and my area's local weather guy/gal standing in front of a weather map that i want to see. Actually, to give the Weather Channel crew credit, they are getting better. They use mouse pointers instead of standing on screen.

    "As you can see, the storm system is..." Um...no i can't see because YOU ARE IN THE WAY!


    &#8226;People who write/draw/highlight in books. I hate that. And i'm not talking about books like the ".....for Dummies" books. You expect that in those books. I'm talking about books like novels. I bought Dante's "The Purgatorio" at a library sale and someone had drawn a "Kilroy was here" face in it.

    You wanna doodle? Buy a sketchpad or a coloring book!

    People that spend all day attached to an iPod, thus rendering them ignorant of their surroundings, specifically people who are attempting to pass them on escalators of narrow thoroughfares i.e. - me.

    Pedestrians who pay no attention to the vehicles they should be observing when crossing the road. I've lost count of how many times I've given some idle halfwit a mouthful after standing on the anchors to avoid killing them. Coincidentally, these goons are usually plugged into an iPod.

    People who don't read the news or keep abreast of current events. They're usually the sort of people who are more concerned with the sports pages than breaking headlines.

    There'll be more.

    People who say "ant" instead of "and."

    People who drive Minis. Fucking motorized roller skates.

    People who talk over other people. STFU and wait.

    People who don't listen.

    Pedestrians who think they're immortal.

    People who talk loudly into their cell phones... we don't need to hear your side of the conversation.

    People who answer their phone when you're talking to them.

    Moronic posters who are incapable of arguing on topic and resort to dragging other posters personal lives into their ranting.

    Computer cables that tangle themselves into knots over night. I put my laptop charger neatly the drawer along with various other cables, and the next morning I'm struggling to seperate them. It's almost as if they're conspiring against me.
