    Slow drivers in the left lane.


    Drivers who cut you off and then slam on breaks. My brother is a county bus driver. This happened to him. The other person's "rear end" got slammed. Justice.


    Coworkers who take your ideas and claim them as their own.

    Posters who use ellipsis points instead of semicolons to connect two independent clauses ... when they know better than to do such a thing. (cough! cough!)

    Then again, may be excused when reading glasses are never on desk when needed and rest of punctuation keys are way too blinkin' tiny to see clearly!

    Who cares? I have been using these annoying little dots ... for years, all in the wrong places, and have no intention of changing now!

    So there!

    • smelling tobacco smoke inside a restaurant where it's spilling over from the bar located on the other side of the room.
    • Following somebody in the car who is fumbling with their cell phone/texting while THEY are driving.
    • Enduring Walmart.
    • Using a credit card at the gas pumps only to discover you have to go inside anyway to get the receipt because that's what the gas stations WANT you to do -- go inside and buy their crap they're peddling.

    Sorry JB and no offense meant but I do believe that may be a listening thing. Around here it's "should've" which can be easily misunderstood as "should of".

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Oh no, I get that. That's the way we say it back East too.

    Next time I see it in print, I will alert you. ;)

    Drivers who cut you off forcing you to slam on your brakes only to find out that there is not a soul behind you.

    Drivers who sit at stop signs until there isn't any traffic whatsoever for miles around.

    Drivers who sit at green lights like they're waiting for a particular shade of green to pop up.

    Drivers who cut you off and when you beep your horn, they flip you off.

    People in movie theaters who think the place is their own personal living room. You know the type. The ones who won't shut up, won't shut their cell phones off, keep kicking your seat, and worse yet, when you ask them to keep it down, they act like you're putting them out.

    Speaking of movie theaters, you go to a movie and pick your seat. There are maybe 12 people in the entire theater. A couple comes walking in and sits right in front of you. 150 open seats and they need to sit in front of you.

    Getting your order screwed up at a restaurant.

    Yeah - in print will be hard to excuse.

    I'm a 'shoulda' man myself - coulda, shoulda, woulda ......
