People who use the motorized carts at Wal-Mart just because they are obese.
Isn't that the truth.

Another one is handicapped parking abuse. People who think that because they are driving grandma's car with the handicapped placard - even though grandma isn't in the car - gives them the right to park in the handicapped space. "But the car has a handicapped tag!" Those who park there and haven't truly "earned" the unfortunate privilege ought to be horsewhipped.

Driving while talking on a cell phone (by someone else) almost made me a widower. That will always be a life-changing event for us.

Those parents who let their kids run wild and play "the elevator game" on cruise ships, where they'll rush in and hit all the buttons and then rush back out of the elevator car before it leaves.

wow drlivingston..feel better now

I'll add to your list:
People who can't seem to use indicators on theirs cars....my telepathy isn't that good.
People who block the aisles in shops with their carts, and when you move them they looks at you like your wrong.
On the subject of shopping carts, it's a PUSH cart not pull cart that goes everywhere.
People who let their kid run riot in the shops it's NOT cute, it's damn annoying...take them to the park and let me do my shopping in peace.
Shop assistance who seems to want to throw your stuff at you, but only give you 2 bags at a time when you've got a full shopping cart full of stuff.

Jeeze I feel better now....time go and relax in a glass of wine.

It seems like this happens to me at Home Depot more than any other store.
the clerk who is talking to his girl or buddy about something, not work related. He/she does not want to be bother by a customer.

People who ride the atrium elevators up & down continuously on Princess in order to view the champagne waterfall event.
People who refuse to take a shopping cart from the lot next to their car & then take one from inside the store that someone have to round up for them or what about the guy who has to take up two parking spaces because he doesn't want you to get to close to his "special" car.

Wow... all of you people need to relax a bit .. not that I disagree with most of it..

Sometimes its better if you can learn to just let it go...

Now having stepped off the soap box...

How about the new fad of trying to "hypermile" to save gas while in rush hour??? I need to get to work, someone in front of me (why are they always in front of ME?) is doing 20 mph trying to time the traffic signal 3 blocks down the road.

Here is one that seems to be a southern thing...the car in front of you is turning and you put your turn signal on for the same direction even though you are not going to turn. I guess people think this is being polite to the cars behind them. Some even think this is being more safe. What it is, is dangerous and probably illegal.

I'm sure drlivingston has seen it.

Here in southern Florida we've got people who'll pull up to a stop sign & sit there until they get a special invitation to move. Maybe it's a age thing.

How about on a rural road and you are the only car in sight and have the right-of-way. About a half mile down the road you see a car pull up to stop sign. They could pull out now and all would be fine. Instead, they wait until you are 100 feet away and then they pull out.

I sometimes wonder how it would be to be a cop for a day, with the power to summarily revoke drivers licenses. I'd pull over the cretins, ask for their license, pull out scissors and cut the license up, and tell them "start walking". I've made errors, but I've never had an accident or been issued a ticket. I've never even been stopped - and I'll admit I've deserved it a few times. But I am largely a very safe, courteous, and competent driver. I think at least 60% of American drivers are not competent to drive.

How about those auto dailers that call and leave us automatic messages!!

Or calling and having to figure out the maze of phone options, only to be put on hold with a nice recording thanking you for your patience.

I always screen my calls with the answering machine unless I know the number calling me. I can't stand the ones I get from Countrywide that, within the first 3 seconds, say "if you don't wish to receive these calls press 1 now". Time yourself and say that in 3 seconds. You can never do it in time before the sales pitch starts, and then it is too late.
