Mikey, you and I really have to go out drinking together :D  We'll probably have the sh!t kicked out of us by the end of the night, but it could be fun.  

I really don't know how it hasn't happened yet.  I've been known to run my mouth a little when I'm inebriated.  If you're ever in my neck of the woods (or vice versa), then it's a date. :-*

Heh.  Maybe Mikey and I can get together at C3, get drunk and kick the crap out of you.  Sort of a modified threesome :-*

Aw, Morgbug, but look at it this way...there may be two of you, but if your drunk there could be upwards of 5 of me.

;)

We'll have a blast at C3.

Oh, and I do believe that summer ending today is a real annoyance. No fun there...
Less fun since Bonnie is hitting tommorow (bad omen?)

How about having to be at school at 8:30 in the morning to get books and stuff, after a summer of sleeping until noon, and getting there to find out that they've delayed giving us everything until next week when school starts.  >:(

BTW, Vator, who starts school on a Thursday? ???

It so figures that the year after I graduate, the school is opening later in the year due to construction because SOMEBODY had to mess with the asbestos stash we had in 90% of the walls.


That annoys me.


Why couldn't they have put us at risk last year? >:(

People who still write checks at stores.  For the love of all that's holy, get with the 21st century.  Here's a clue, it's called a ******* Debit Card.  Get one.  Even the shittiest banks have them.

Maybe it's the weather...

People that drive in the rain without their lights on.  It's ******* pouring this morning, hard, it's dark, we're on a highway.  I don't give a flying rat's ass if you think you can see fine, it's dark and wet, turn on your lights.  It's as much for someone else's safety as it is for yours.  ********. 

Turn signals: turning them on after you are in the turning motion or into the turn lane makes it a pointless exercise.  Get your hand off your dick and use it you inconsiderate piece of ****. 

Parking in no parking lanes by a Walmart or whatever: look you dumb ****, there is no ******* way on a Saturday afternoon you are going to be in and out quickly.  Get off you lazy fat ass, untie the piano from your butt and get the **** into a parking space.  When I win the lottery, I am buying the biggest ******* key in the world and keying absolutely everyone who does this. 

more to follow >:(

I've had fun reading this thread today, and agree with so many of your pet peeves here.  Some in particular:

Driving: the different aspects...not using a blinker, tailgating, cutting off, slow drivers, crazy fast drivers, and just all around bad drivers.

Lazy people: the ones that wait and/or drive around slowly in Wal-Mart's lot for hours waiting for that "prime spot" that will save them absolutely no time.  There is no such thing as a "quick trip to Wal-Mart", no matter what you are getting.

Inconsiderate people:  As Jeff mentioned earlier, examples of people not giving up their seat to elderly and/or disabled people.  I'm not on busses/subways really, but I notice this while waiting at restaurants as well.  This also covers Mikey's comments about cart handling in parking lots.  I can't stand it when people just leave them, or send them sailing across to ram into someone's car.  Another "inconsiderate people" point that really bothers me, and that I have noticed this summer, is jerks at the movies.  Especially, I have noticed, junior high/high school age kids.  We unfortunately got to the movie Anchorman a little late, on opening night, and had to sit down in the front seats amongst the little boogers.  I have never had so much talking, giggling, getting up 100 times during the movie, and chair ramming in my life.  Ruins the movie, and really irritates me.  I mean, if you're going to pay that much money for a movie, and goof off all the way through it, why even go?  Turds.

A few more...

1.  When the drive thru doesn't get your order right and you have to go into the crowded restaurant to get what you ordered, despite the fact that THAT is what you wanted to avoid which is is why you went to the drive thru in the first place!   

2.  When some "in a hurry" jerk runs/jogs to the door so that they can get in front of you in line to get through the security checkpoint, only to explain to the guard that they KNOW they don't have their badge, so the guards gotta do a remote lookup for the Employee ID.  If you KNOW you don't have your badge and are gonna take 10 minutes, then let me go first dammit!   >:(

3.  Women who are Brett Favre fans.   >:(

4.  Having stuff up for auction on eBay that no one bids on!  Come on people!  I went to all the trouble to take a picture and write up a nice description and now no one wants my cheap-ass old junk?  Damn!   $0.35 right down the crapper. 

5.  Building a deck that takes all summer because your plans are so friggin' elaborate/elegant.   >:(

That's it for now...

Here's a few:

Stepping in water while wearing socks (bothered me more when I was younger, probably one of the reasons I rarely wear socks anymore)

In stores (most often, Wal-Mart) people who leave their cart sitting askew, right in the middle of the aisle, so there is no way to get around it at all.  Also, when people park their cart on one side, then go stand and mouth breathe while checking out the food/whatever on the other side, providing no lane to get through.

Also while shopping (thinking of stores like Wal-Mart and Target), people who while walking/cart pushing around the "perimeter" aisle, stop dead in their tracks right in front of you, to check out the special on Oreos for today (or something else).  I guess just shopping etiquette in general...often with carts, is something that annoys me.  Like when people (again, at Wal-Mart) come flying out of the side aisles without hesitating to think someone might be coming along.

I'm also slightly annoyed (and sorry if this offends anyone at all, that's not what I mean), but here in town we have a lot of high school aged kids who enjoy to buy these small cars (think Neon, Honda, Toyota type cars) and put huge exhaust systems on them, and hammer down non stop creating lots of noise (similar to what was mentioned earlier about motorcycles).  These cars are usually "pimped out", complete with flames, wings, and neons.  Again, nothing against people who have these cars...to each their own.
