Guys on their bicycles riding side by side in a lane of traffic, making it difficult to get around them & screwing up traffic!

School buses on a highway, driving in the left lane! Why is a school bus in the left lane??

People who don't signal!!

Feel free to rant!!! I'll be adding more.

Being in a hurry and getting stopped for a train!

People who speed up in passing zones and slow down in no passing zones! :angry:

Driving towards the sun and its in just the right spot so you cant block it with the visor.

Co-workers (I'm sure that everyone has someone they work with that they cant stand!!) :P

cars that are doing at or below the speed limit side by side so both the left and right lanes in a two lane road is blocked off!

Yeah, coworkers...I second that!

anybody who thinks "I love money" is a legitimate tv show

spam threads on forums (you know what im talking about!)

people who rant online in forums (just kidding! :P)

As far as driving goes, cars that want to make a left turn, so they go around the right side of the person in the left lane, and make the turn in front of them.

People who tailgate.

People who see an accident on the shoulder (on the highway), but drive along the shoulder to get past the traffic, and then try to squeeze back in further up. This is as equally annoying as people who cut traffic by pulling into the "left only lane" to get past the line in the right lane, and then cut back in.

People who overtighten my oil drain plug, so when i go to change my own oil, i cant get the damn thing off.

People who feel that the presidential candidate they are voting for will solve all of (read: any of) the country's problems.

I've been known to speed down a turn lane and cut in up ahead.

I hate mopeds. I've had the most trouble with them than any other type of drivers. One moped guy in particular kept zooming in and out of traffic at stop lights, weaving to the front, and every time I tried to speed up to switch lanes or turn he was in the way. I finally had to lean out of my window and tell him that if he got in my way again I was gonna hit him and make it look like an accident. Naturally I didn't mean it, but I guess he got the point, because he didn't get in the way anymore.

See, that doesn't bother me. I find it to be more fun to fly three lanes over, get in front of the traffic, and make my way back to the left lane in front of the slowpoke :biggrin:

This forum being closed down once a month..

snap! good one. I guess I should make my donation...

Ok, driving annoyances:

-people sitting on the right hand at a stop sign when they're turning left and I'm turning right.... there's plenty of effin room if you just position your care where it's supposed to be!

-At a stop sign when I'm turning right and there's someone next to me who is turning left; there's tons of cross traffic so they won't be making their turn anytime soon, I nudge out to see past them, so then they nudge out to see past me... isn't there some sort of right-of-way issue at work here cause it's obvious I'm going to be turning first.

-People that don't understand how 4-way stops work.

-Female drivers.

I love that that's what you chose to tell him; well thought out, a real threat, and I'm surprised you were able to yell it all at him while driving...

Spam. It makes me want to stab someone in the neck with a ballpoint pen.

Finicky idling.

People that drive like a-holes because they think that it characterizes them in some humorous way.

People who will fight with you for having a different political opinion.

When people don't understand the right of way laws. Some guy is sitting across from you at a stop sign before you get up to it. You wait for him to go and he never does. So, you start going and then they decide to go. Just a common scenario.

When people do not use their turn signals. Just like in the above scenario, that guy wanted to go the same direciton as me, but of course didn't indicate it. So damn annoying.

Last one. When you are passing someone and some guy comes up behind you speeding. He is all over your ass. Of course you can't get right over because you are passing a car. You wait till it's safe to get over, but the guy behind you is so impatient, he starts going.

I had one guy start going into the other lane, but I turned my signal on. He whips back over and waits for me. I move over and he shows his dismay by giving me the finger. The kicker is I catch up with him at the next light...

People who don't understand alternate merge (when 2 lanes go to 1). Those selfish people that have to be in front, which ends up causing more traffic.

^ again, +1. theres one of those close to my house, and it happens all the time, the left lane goes straight over a train overpass, and the right lane merges into it. So the people in the right lane end up getting shoved aside by the a-holes in the left lane who feel "i'm going straight, so i go first." Indeed it does clog up the traffic on that road.

We were both stopped at a light, he was beside me in traffic when I told him. I didn't really have to yell. Most of the traffic was moving slow, about 25 in a 45mph zone, and there were a lot of stop lights and intersections. We were in Greenville, NC. It's a small city. You'd have to have been there to see how the tension built to really feel it.

When small children cry when I'm inhaling lard into my stomach in restraunts (sp?).

My upstairs neighbors never being quiet at 4am when I'm trying to sleep.

...Babies. (Don't ask).
