    You know what really grinds my gears?

    DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT LOOKING TO SOLVE OR GAIN INSIGHT TO ANY OF THE ISSUES WHICH I WILL BE MENTIONING. The following is a rant for the pure purpose of venting. Feel free to add your own "gear grinders" to the thread, but please make no attempt to solve or explain mine or anyone else's "gear grinders". Commiserations are acceptable. Please keep politics out of it...
    HINT: This is supposed to be semi-comical so lighten up and join in!


    THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF THINGS WHICH MAKE ME ANGRY:

    When the twist-tie on the bag of bread is spun backwards.
    People who don't like animals.
    Microwaves which don't have an "add 30 seconds" button.
    Dull knives.
    Bland tasting food.
    Overly spiced food.
    Running out of gas as far from the barn as is physically possible.
    When assembly instructions seem like they are written by someone who has never seen the product before.
    Miracle Whip.
    Hauling anything wrapped in a cheap tarp for long distances.
    Mean people.
    Running out of cut-off wheels before a project is complete.
    Stepping in dog crap.
    Stepping in dog crap and not realizing it until I take my boots off in the house a few hours later.
    Dead batteries.
    The snowplow going past my house as I walk inside after clearing the driveway.
    When pizza or sub shops get stingy with their toppings.

    Whose turn is it next?!
    '50 Model M w/electronic ignition, 12v conversion, and a 3pt conversion plus a homemade snowplow, a Deere Model 51 trailer plow, a Woods RM59 finish mower, a Bark Buster splitter, and a few other toys.
    '69 Sears Suburban 14 48" deck and 42" back blade, an estate rake, and a sweeper.
    '07 F250 XL Powerstroke, crew cab, short box, 4x4.
    '85 F150... I finally sold my very first truck after racking up over half-a-million miles on the original drivetrain.

    There, their, they're.
    Your, you're.
    Standard bolts getting mixed in with metric ones.
    Whitworth sockets getting mixed in with my sae sockets.

    This is great! Keep 'me coming!

    I blame the person and not the "Firearm" mentality.

    Great idea for a new thread.
    Just a few that come to mind to start off with... (More will probably be added)

    Getting tech support on the phone from someone who is just reading from a script.
    Getting tech support on the phone from someone who is just reading from a script and doesn't know/listen to what I am asking.
    Getting tech support on the phone and I can't understand what they are saying (language/accent issues).
    Waiting my "turn" to say something to my wife (because I'm polite), then forgetting what I was going to say when it's my turn to talk.
    People "insisting and insisting" that I said something that I emphatically KNOW that I didn't.
    Walking around in the dark and tripping on something ... when I was too lazy to turn the light on.

    More to follow.
