Since there seems to be alot of driver hate I'll chime in.   You Know What I Hate. Slow ass drivers, not speed limit but 10+ below. I hate driving in the sprawling metropolis that is Omaha,Ne. I don't know what they're doing or where they're going but obviously it's not important. I am convinced that 95% of them have their tampon string attached to their right foot and are afraid if they push the accelerator to much that it'll pop like a champagne cork and they'll bleed out in their F-150s

I call the lane straddlers,  lane day traders.   They expend so much energy on buying and selling lanes, they end up in the same spot as I do,  and I endure none of the transaction stress.   I hate them.


Another thing I hate, though less of a problem where I live since we have 1,000 roundabouts,   you get to a four way stop (lots of cars), and one of the drivers puts on the turn signal at the buzzer, as in they are starting to make their move through the intersection.   Such a hazard.

People who camp out in the left lane on the freeway.

Seriously. You should *only* occupy the left lane when you're actively passing someone. Other than that, you should be in the right lane.

But no, people sit in the left lane. Whether there are other drivers around or not. And you pull up behind them, and they don't get over (because they're oblivious). So you end up passing them on the right. Which is a no-no, but they're morons, so you get stuck doing it.

People don't understand that the entire reason that you get cars all bunched up together and then 2 miles of free road until you reach the back of the next bunch of cars is COMPLETELY due to left lane hogs. If they would get over to the right except when passing, the traffic wouldn't bunch up like that.

And everyone would be happier.

What makes this a bigger problem is when cars are 'Riding CHiPs' style.    The aforementioned left lane vehicle is traveling at the same speed as the right lane vehicle, and there they go, total stranger, yet aligned like Ponch and Baker, except nobody can get the #$%^ around them.

I hate how difficult it has become to make plans with most adult friends.  I can't even remember when it shifted, but I miss the days when you could just call people to hang out or do stuff with at the last minute without all the restrictions and junk that comes with planning stuff these days.

I get it that the people with kids need to plan for things in advance, so that's not entirely the issue, but even just setting a date/time/place seems to prove difficult sometimes even with non-parent friends.  If you choose a brewery to invite friends to, there's someone who complains they don't drink beer.  If you choose a restaurant, someone says what they don't like about it, but never offers up an alternative or comparable suggestion.    Yet nobody else wants to take the lead on scheduling something fun for a group.    While I like to be social and help organize plans, I am getting to the point of just not even bothering and saving the hassle of meeting everyone's needs to make it happen.

This made me think about being out for dinner a few months ago with another couple (it was planned a few days in advance, we both have two kids) and we were eyeballing a couple that was out on a date together, they were likely low to mid 20s, and not only were they not really talking to each other, they of course were taking pictures of every plate of food that whizzed by,  but they were constantly on their phones (not taking calls of course),  I walked past them and he's snapchatting  away, and she's likely doing something similar. 


I swear there's a segment of the populace that just doesn't want to be social in a conversational sense, they simply want to curate their lives for their social network friends.   


Your point Erin is well taken though, not enough spontaneity anymore, and you mention the other dimension, which is people who can't commit or exhibit some flexibility.  Yeah, who doesn't want to have a good meal, but so you have to go to a 'strange' or not so wonderful place to eat, so what, have some fun for cryin' out loud.

I hate that. I understand that we all have lives that get connected through our phones. But I'm considerate enough not to do that at the table. Maybe if my girlfriend goes to the restroom, I might check it for a moment. But I'm not going to be spending a meal with her or with a group glued to the screen.

I do sometimes understand taking pictures of food though, or pictures of where you're at or who you're with... Sometimes that's fun. But still I don't spend the whole time glued to a screen.

I hate people who won't commit to plans. My life is pretty busy, since my girlfriend and I have my kids every other weekend, and we usually try to come up with awesome things to do together on weekends without them. But if someone suggests to us that we do something on some weekend, we'll either commit or say no. We're not going to spend 3 weeks trying to figure out whether we've got a better option.

S**t or get off the pot, folks.

When I was a kid, my family would load up and go visit another family on impulse.  No plans, no invitation.
