    Taz that is one of mine too.

    People over a certain age who drive and really shouldn't (I believe from 65+ you should have to sit your driving test again)
    Rude/arrogant people - we're all the same on the inside!
    People who cross the road when my light is green - I WILL run you over!

    Funny, never drive in Louisiana then. strange as it may sound everyone knows everyone's intentions and nobody uses blinkers here (even the police don't) And it seems to just work. But you can always point out the "out of towners" as they will beat their steering wheels while screaming obscenities.

    Mine are also driving-related.

    People who drive too slow.
    People who don't indicate.
    People who drive slow and when you try and overtake them, they speed up.
    People who cross the road and don't care that you have to slam the brakes to stop from hitting them.
    But worst of all...People who think they own the road and just do whatever they want in front of you!!!

    When your driving and and someone pulls out infront of you from the next lane or from a side street and totally cuts you of with total disregard. Oh and people who use no turn signals on round abouts. If I know there turning but have no turn signal on, I just go anyway and go slow as heck. That gets them going.

    I am in the UK totally different :lol:

    Same here in Holland. I hate that, what's so hard about turning that indicator on. It's the worst when people are on a roundabout. Let other people see where you are going for * sake! :evil:

    Because I know it's all a front and he's not so bad really! :P

    OK as a pedestrian I will say drivers who don't know that a zebra crossing gives the person crossing RIGHT OF WAY! You HAVE to stop, you're not being courteous by doing so! :lol:

    Here's a suggestion for you drivers in distress, but take caution that you follow the laws whatever they are. Works best if you have a passenger.
    first test on your car the next time you wash it to get proper consistency.
    #1. Buy a water gun
    #2. Mix water and liquid dish soap (more liquid then water)
    #3. Once mixed test on your windshield and see if your wipers smear it or if it comes right off, if it comes off use more liquid dish soap.
    Next time someone cuts you off make your way around them, once in front stick your water gun out of window just enough to spray out of the window, give them a few sprays and watch them pull over since they can't get it off, and the more water they try to use it will only make bubbles pretty funny and works like a champ.

    :lol: No, that annoys me too. Pedestrians just walk across the street whenever they want but when they come to a crossing, they just sit there, scared.

    Rome is the best for pedestrians! You just cross wherever and whenever and the cars just know to stop :lol:

    Not much, frankly. About the only thing that really gets to me is our fundamental lack of respect for the English language. I'm not sure whether it's laziness or lack of education or indifference, but it does concern me and I feel we could try to be more cognizant of our blatant disregard for spelling, grammar, and punctuation! :lol:

    The ones that really kill me are "you're" vs "your" and "their" vs "there" vs "they're." :P A quick reminder:

    Apparently some people got killed in the one at Abbey Road recently. They were doing a photo and the camera which is there caught it happening. Horrible. (Yes, been there, done that.)

    It really grinds my gears when someone cuts me or others while we wait in line. It's rude and unfair to everyone. Please wait like everyone else. And don't you dare put your hands on me when I call you out or throw a hissy! :evil: :lol:
