    Feel free to list any issues you have.

    So I leave for work this morning and about a mile down the road this guy
    refuses to stop at the intersection so he can pull out in front of me. No
    problems yet, but then he starts driving about 10 mph under the limit. Two
    lane road and only a few places to pass (safely) so I wait. Another jerk pulls
    out in front of him and now we’re going 15 under. We get to the straightaway
    and he decides to pass the car in front, I do the same. We make it around
    the car and he starts to merge into the other lane, and I think “ now’s my
    chance”. I attempt to pass both of them and the guy in front speeds up,
    enough to tell me that he isn’t letting me in. I slow down and start to merge
    in the other lane (keeping my distance) and the asshole slams on his breaks
    and flips me the bird. WHAT AN ASS!!! I gave him PLENTY of space the entire
    time, then he continued to drive 10mph under only to turn off the road 2
    minutes later. And That’s what really grinds my gears.

    People talking on cell phones while behind the wheel. They are responsibile for this huge piece of machinery and they putter around oblivious to anything around them.
    I wonder how many know that if they're in an accident while on the phone, they will be cited, even if they are in the right?

    So I'm doing some "paperwork" in the men's room and I hear at least
    3 people walk out without washing their hands. Touch your meatwhistle all
    you want but wash your damn hands. You might as well rub your weinner
    all over the door handle and your keyboard. I'm not a germ freak but I
    ALWAYS use a paper towl to open the latrine door.

    It's effective to ride his ass with your hand on the horn. That's what I always did. 'Course, I didn't care if I hit him with my car either. I don't do that anymore... but I also rarely get stuck behind slow assholes :D

    That's also what I do, but it struck me odd that this man would react
    this way even though I did NOTHING wrong. It pissed me off even more.

    You know what really grinds my gears?
    I just mentioned this on another thread but,
    I leave everything I have in it's own place. I do this so I know where
    to find it. I'm not a control freak, it's just easier than looking for stuff.
    If my wife asks to use my keys or anything else, there is a 1% chance
    that she will leave that item in it's designated place, making it impossible
    to find it without her retracing steps. I HATE THIS, IT DRIVES ME INSANE!!!!!

    Stop me if I've said this before. :laugh:

    Onething that pisses my off like nothing else is someone telling me I"m breaking a rule, even though I'm not or because I might possibly be doing something against the "rules" even though that's the farthest thing from my mind. For example, I'm walking my dog, we go by the entrance to the park. My dog trys to pull me into the park, I pull him back onto the sidewalk and laughingly say to the dog "no park today" as I pass this asshole. What does this control freak do? He feels the need to say, to me "you aren't actually allowed to bring your dog in there, ya know". Bite me. :asshole:

    My network guy asked me to pass this one along.
    Why does everyone in the building feel the need to
    "just let you know" that the network is down?
    He knows the network is down, and he could probably
    get it back up alot faster if you leave him alone.
