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. :soapbox: 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...:nunu:
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?! :munch:

Agree with it all but I can summarize easily to just "people".

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.:banghead:
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.:banghead:
Getting tech support on the phone and I can't understand what they are saying (language/accent issues).:banghead:
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.:banghead:
People "insisting and insisting" that I said something that I emphatically KNOW that I didn't.:banghead:
Walking around in the dark and tripping on something ... when I was too lazy to turn the light on.:banghead:

More to follow.

Drivers who HAVE to be in the left lane, no matter what.
Drivers in the left lane that don't keep up with the traffic ahead of them
Drivers that go so slow in the left lane that everyone passes them in the middle lane, and then HAVE to get into the left lane
Drivers that go faster than me
Drivers that go slower than me
Drivers that leave earlier for work the day after the clocks change just because it is light out and now they've made the already heavy commute even worse. Go back to your own time slot, and stay out of my left lane.

OK, that covers my left lane issues, I will return with middle lane issues shortly.

all above and one of mine:

people that pull out in front of me (going speed limit) and act like it's my fault when I tailgate because they fail to reach road speed. Really?

Oh, I have to add one more left lane issue, Trucks that are stuck behind a slow moving truck going up hill in the right lane and middle lane at 25mph, so they slide to the left lane to pass but they are only going 27mph.

Also people who slide into a space between a car and a truck an make the truck lock up his trailer brakes. (Cuz I don't like the smell of the burning brakes)

Phone calls from "Rachael" about my credit card;
Neighbors who never mow their lawn;
Folks who won't control their bratty kids;
Healthy individuals who park in handicapped spaces;
When the wind blows the neighbor's trash can over and it ends up in my yard;
Riding in someone else's car and listening to their crappy music
Trying to understand what my wife is saying when she is in the bedroom closet and I am in the garage.

:laugh: My wife and I have a "don't try to have a conversation from a different room unless it is an emergency" rule for just that reason!


People who use their phones in movie theaters.
People who use their phones while I'm trying to talk to them.
People who use their phones while driving.

Now that's a good idea. I'll have to figure out a way to implement it without calling it a "rule", though. I end up walking into the room she's in any way, if I want to know what she said. :)
