People in parking lots that immediatley put their vehicle into reverse after entering that don't look behind them before backing up.  Also hate morons who are turning left on a green light (no green arrow) that disregard oncoming traffic that's turning right.

That's called a "Pittsburgh left" around here, or so I've heard it referred.  I hear people from other areas say they've never seen so many people do the left turn on green in front of others.

Though it may also be people waiting at a red light and when it turns green and they're turning left they gun it before the oncoming stuff can gun it and keep them from turning...  I may have my left turn douchebaggery mixed up slightly.  Same basic concept though, just with a twist.

People that drive with their left arm hanging outside of their vehicle.  I guess it's better then their leg hanging out, but ya...I've come to accept texting and talking on the phone as the norm so for some reason that's ok...not safe, but ok.

Okay, I actually see a lot of people drive with their left leg/foot sticking out the window and it annoys the hell out of me.  Keep your stinky feet inside the vehicle when in motion!  >:(

I live in the UK so that would be really impressive or dangerous depending on the window they use :P

co-sign. I don't know why but this bugs me too, moreso when they are gesturing and not just letting it hang down.

Wait, texting/talking is acceptable, but driving with your left arm out the window isn't?  Hmmm, ok.

As someone who does a lot of driving at his job, I'll happily know I'm annoying a lot of folks with my left arm as it flails about out my car window. ;D

No legs hanging out the window though.

Yeah, I'm not in the talk/text while driving crowd. Too dangerous with people's mind not on the road... same with the ladies that are applying make-up on the way to work. Just wake up 15 minutes earlier each day so that you live a long, healthy life.

I also must annoy people with my arm out the window.

But how are all the homeless suppose to get those free shoes that litter the roads?

I wonder if that's why you sometimes see just a random shoe on the road...  No mate to it, just a random piece of footwear laying along a road.

That's sexist.  You should have an equal dislike for men applying their make-up on the way to work.

True, I forgot about your morning rituals. Apologies, kind sir/ma'am.  ;)

People who cant do the speed limit and must go faster and then whinge they get a ticket for speeding
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
