gas prices and...

SS owners who have problems with SS clones with badging. They were so affected it sounds like it has done significant damage to their bank account.

I despise people riding my ass when I am in the fast lane and doing 10-15 over, because I should get over and slow down for them to pass. Brake check for them, cause I know mine work well:biggrin:

That may not be the case any more as Netflix is changing business models and moving away from cinematic films and focusing on broadcast TV shows. Streaming reruns of MASH and Mork and Mindy somehow just doesn't offer the same value. :no:

Ummm What is a torrent?
It's a method of file sharing. Think of it as the latest version of Napster, but for any type of computer file(s)

Today, I had someone attempt ot occupy the lane that I was in, but fortunately nobody was in the lane next to me, so I got over very quick! :hissyfit: She didn't even bother using a turn signal, and had a good 1/2 mile to get over. No need to be in my lane immediately. She should know that it would have been her car that would have went spinning in circles and not mine. However, she did acknowledge that she did something bad though.

What's the problem with that? I can go 60 or 65 when the speed limit is 70, and get MPGs!
70: 13MPG; 60: 17MPG, drafting a semi (with plenty of distance): +0.5 MPG.

Okay correction on that, people that drive slow in a one lane street!! In a two lane and up I can pass them its cool! One lane go the speed limit at least!

The standard ignorant driver peeves of course, but the biggest one for me is CLEAN THE SNOW OFF YOUR DAMN CAR!

I can't stand it when people drive by with a foot of snow on top of your minivan. Reach up there with your damn brush and dump it in your driveway. I already paid the town to plow the streets! And then they pull onto the highway and create a new whiteout!

I can understand with big trucks where you can't reach the roof in a reasonable manner (18 wheelers etc). But if you can reach it, clear it! At least down to 1 inch or so, it doesn't have to be car wash clean to make me happy. And clear your friggin windows. That is at least a fineable offense. I'm not sure if there is anything for dumping snow on everyone else.

There was a thread about it shortly after the site launched.

People who stop far behind the vehicle in front of them. Perfect example, this guy was about 3 car lengths back :hopeless:

The ones that really piss me off, are the ones that do it next to a turn lane, so people behind them can't get to it. :hissyfit:

In that area could have been dropping off a hooker.

For the Multi lane road argument.

I have alot of pet peeves. Some of my biggest are people abusing government assistance programs, the people that really need it cannot use it because Bebe and her 10 kids in their 12 bedroom mini mansion and crack dealing daddy get a nice chunk, meanwhile a single mother with 3 kids working 2 jobs can't even get food stamps. Your main driving ones, idiots doing a job when they are not qualified to flip burgers, tree huggers, and people complaining about file sharing.

Well I hate to say it, its Florida, hes driving a Lincoln, his turn signal has also probably been on for the last 2 countys.. Seems about par for the course for me..

More FL drivers, driving badly, which reminded me of another pet peeve... People who can't read street signs and/or don't have enough common sense to properly assess a situation in front of them :hopeless:

In this case, a woman coming out of some stores wanted to make a left turn where she shouldn't have. Instead of making a right, and hanging a U turn down the street, she tried to sneak through the left turn lane for the traffic coming from the right. You can clearly see the no U turn, no left turn sign for traffic coming from the left. Well not only that, but she didn't anticipate the rate of speed of the oncoming traffic, and the rest is left up to the cops, insurance companies and body shops... :duh:

The 2 women were quite animated in their discussion of who was at fault. The 2 guys off to the right, couldn't tell if they were with them, or just at the bus stop waiting. They were talking about what happened, but not nearly as intense about it.

When you are making a turn and some knucklehead comes burning up behind hoping you finish the turn... so they don't have to slow down, and almost graze your bumper.

Slow drivers in the lane next to the school bus, that let the school bus beat them to the next stop. :hissyfit:

People that walk the diagonal down the parking lot instead of walking straight across.

Don't step in my way from your kiosk in the mall and ask me if I really love my lady and try to sell me a nail polishing kit or a flower.

The fact I need to ask and pay extra for "extra hot fudge" in a McDonalds sundae to get the same amount that used to come in one.

People that leave their portable basket ball goals hanging 3' in the street.

Numbers on one side of the mailbox, opposite the way you drive into the dead-end street.

Tossing cigarette butts from the car, I know it came with an ashtray.

14" hubcap spinners originally with 4-blades and now only 3 and just rock back and forth.

People speeding up to close the gap after you put your signal on to switch lanes.

The fact our driving schools and the ease to get a license is a joke in this country.

Let's see. Pet peeves. Here's some:

People who put on their turn signal to change lanes and start moving over without checking to see if there is even enough room to fit their car.

People who get on the expressway in order to get off the very next exit--and have to cross no fewer than 4 lanes of traffic within less than 1/4 mile to do so.

People who drive around with their feet hanging out the window (or their passenger's feet).

Government assistance specifically providing cellphones for low-income people--with texting plans!! :rant:

Oh yeah, drives me crazy. Anyone riding a bike in the middle of a lane where the surrounding traffic is significantly faster is just as bad.

People who can't take 10 seconds out of their loser lives to put the shopping cart back where it belongs. And instead abandon it in the parking lot where it can dent my car.

People who come to a full stop at a green light :mad:

It caught me by enough surprise this morning that I didn't snap one of my customary cell phone pics to share. :duh:
