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.

I'll chime in on the driving thing.....

I dislike it when there is an impeded driver - not drunk or high, but impeded... elderly, physical disability, ect, having a hard time operating a vehicle in traffic- and who choose to attempt driving erratically and out of sync with their environment instead of waiting for a more agreeable to their limitations environment, or simply handing the keys over to someone who can drive properly... I really dislike that, because they put others at risk with whatever their motivation is be it pride, stubbornness, or just lost in their own world oblivious to what havoc they create... as i said, i really dislike that...

but i hate.... i mean hate when some jackass puts unneeded pressure on one of those^ types... they tailgate them- blow their horn- pass them in questionable circumstances or just plain dangerously.. they do this as if they're 'teaching them a lesson'.. as if the intimidation factor will all of the sudden 'snap one of those^types to compliance'- when what they're doing is making matters much much worse...

/end rant.

I get that, but, sometimes people get on the road in rush hour (hours here in my area) and have nowhere to go and all day to get there. And they get in the left, other left, center, right and other right lanes.


This is not a good thing. Just stay home, perhaps, or get with the program and drive like others. Ya know. Keep up with traffic or something.

I hate it when I scroll up and down 2 pages a couple times looking for the "Beer Thread" and still can't find it

WTF?


PBR gave Canada the greatest Christmas gift of all: 99-can beer cases

I was at a restaurant in town, which always has very interesting beer (good food too),  they had Nitro Pabst for some reason.  I just had to get it.   It was still PBR.

Back to driving annoyances...

I do a fair amount of driving on the interstate, not just commuting within your own city to/from work but driving across the state or to other states for hours at a time, and I've encountered some absolutely aggravating behaviors in my experience.

People who refuse to use and/or have no clue what cruise control is AND also have no idea how to maintain a specific speed. On the open interstate I use the hell out of cruise control, but I often will eventually catch up to someone completely baffled by it's purpose or simply thinking keeping the same speed is for losers or something. So I catch up to some car while I'm in cruise control and I'll pass him up. And see him drift back several car lengths in my rear view mirror. Then he starts catching back up to me and even eventually passes me. Weird, but whatever. Enjoy your new faster pace, stranger. Then he'll get a couple hundred yards ahead of me and sure enough, I start gaining on him slowly but surely and end up passing him right back. This process sometimes will repeat right up until one of you reaches your exit, all the while I never once deviate from my selected speed on my cruise control.
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

Similar to the above example is encountering people on the freeway who are in what shall be called "speed denial". These are the people you catch up to on the freeway while going your steady, constant speed. Sometimes given the circumstances you'll see this person miles ahead of you while you gain ground on them and when you finally catch up to them they speed up either matching your speed or even faster. It's like these people were 100% content with their choses speed right up until someone had the audacity to go even faster than them. No way, can't allow that. 

Once while driving from Albuquerque to Los Angeles, the bulk of which is driven on I-40, I caught up to a car around Kingman, AZ. He did the exact scenario I just described and decided, for whatever reason, I was not to pass him at all. Except rather than match my speed (which I am maintaining a constant via cruise control) ahead of me or simply speed up and eventually leave me behind this guy speed up when I would catch up to him and maybe about a mile or two ahead of me he'd slow back down. Every single time I caught up to him he'd bout a mile or two ahead of us and let me catch back up. We did this little dance all the way to Barstow, CA (little over 200 miles from where I first encountered him) before he finally exited.

I can't even have a nice new vehicle for less than 6 months without some dumbtwat swerving into me.  That's what I hate about driving at the moment! 

First brand new vehicle I have bought in almost 20 years, and it's the brightest orange vehicle I have seen, and people still don't see me coming.  Not sure what else to do except put a blaring ice-cream-truck-style-siren to tell drivers that I'm there and to stay out of my way. I guess having a bright color just isn't enough.    :73:

At least the lady had insurance, and now I'm hoping I can get some compensation for diminished value of this brand new vehicle along with the repairs.

I hate people with carry on bags.

I check a bag and I carry a brief case.   I wish everyone did.

Instead it takes 25 to board a plane and 25 minutes to deboard because everyone else has to cram their carryon luggage into the overhead.

I know exactly what you were talking about above, DF.

I also hate constant speed moron.  

Let’s say you’re on a state highway that goes through little towns.   It’s 65 between the towns, 55 on the outskirts of town, 45 through town.

Constant speed moron drives 60 through every zone.  Consequently you pass him between every town but when you get to each town he passes you.

Another annoying driver I see around town is the Innocent Thug.

Innocent Thug usually drives a car that’s almost nice.  Like a Mustang without a hood or a Challenger with body damage.

You’ll encounter Innocent Thug at four way stop signs or in Lowe’s parking lots and he will do this most annoying thing.

When he has the rigt of way, he will turn a look at you and give you this ‘What are you going to do about it?’ sneer.

And of course, you’re not going to a damn thing about it because the damn fool isn’t even doing anything wrong.

I hate the Innocent Thug.
