People who drive slow in the fast lane.  I was coming back from a job in the Detroit area, crusing along I-696 doing 85 in the left lane.  I have to slam on my brakes because some asshat in front of me is doing 60 >:(

Self-rightious liberals.  Going to school at Michigan State, which is fairly liberal, I ran into these half-wits all the time.  There's nothing funnier than upper-middle class white kids rambling on about the plight of 3rd world nations

Extreme conservatives.  No, God is not telling you what to do.  Don't try that crap with me

The hour long wait at my local post office - nearly every single damned time.   >:(

2 or 3 postal employees are not going to do the trick when you have 30 to 40 people constantly waiting in line in a very busy Los Angeles branch...   ::)  Get with the program!   :-X

Hmm...  voices in your head that tell you what to do???  Sounds like schitzophrenia.

When you buy something and the total comes out to like $20.04.  I don't make a habit of carrying change with me, so I always have to give them $21.  What makes it worse is when the cashier says "Oh sorry, we're out of quarters, here's a handful of nickels instead"   ::)

That's how it is at the post office by my house.  It's crazy!  I just love how the Post Office employees just RUSH around, trying to help every customer in a timely fashion.  <<< said with just a hint of sarcasm   ;) >>>

I"m not a fan of the post office either, and I usually have to go there 3 days a week for work.  Its pretty bad that the postal employees all know me.  I've always got at least a 20 minute wait no matter what time I go.  At least I'm on the clock when it happens

Lending family money and then having them never pay it back!!
Hubby's sister (yes, I know that would make her my sister-in-law but that's not what I am calling her at the moment) was all ticked off because I asked her for the grand she owes us from back in March!!  I can't believe she was ticked at me for asking about it!!??   Then, to top it all off, she whines to my mother-in-law that I want it back "just to buy those stupid toys".  

Dear Sister-in-law:

Kiss My ***


Rule #3:  Never lend family members money. >:(

Civic Nation.

Have you guys seen these ads?  A bunch of Civics customized driving around with thumping bass?

Now don't get me wrong, the first car I ever owned was a Civic (1980) as was the second, 1986 CRX.  But come on.  These are economy cars that sell for what, about $11 K US and guys are dropping the same amount for stereos and customizing the body?  I simply don't get it.  That and the local Civic Nation is irritating as hell.  They all have customized, illegal mufflers that do nothing for sound and they all race around on the residential streets.   Bugger off ya little snot bags before I put a real hole in your muffler >:(  And get some real music you freaks. ;)

Some I just thought of today since I was there looking for Star tours figs.  THe fact that Disney decided to cut power to the esclator to the monorail making you have to walk  up/down on a bunch piece of covrory belt, yet they still have the power to have the pumps working with the old Sub ride which has been gone for the past 10 years or more.  
And another one people who decide to take a picture while you are walking behind them on said mention esclator and having them push you into the people behind you, idoits. ::)

While I think modifying the family sedan to look like an indy car is both pathetic AND silly (buy a real sports car, boys)...I do believe that an awesome stereo is a neccesity whether you are driving a BMW or a Pinto.

While it's silly to exceed the stereo/car value ratio, I admit that I had a 1200 dollar stereo in my 800 dollar Ford Escort back in the day.  :)

Yeah Josh, point taken.  My first stereo in the CRX was a thing of beauty.  Harmon Kardon deck, HK amp for front Pioneer speakers, Blaupunkt amp for rear Bose 101 speakers.  Absolutlely huge sound ;D  Until it got stolen.  As did the next three.  

I just gave up for the most part.  Better cars with better stock stereos.  Gotta love Nissan and their association with Bose.
