    I know everyone has silly things that get under their skin.

    *When people who are housebreaking a dog call it "potty training" or "toilet training".

    *People who finish your sentences for you.

    *The phrase "Have a good one!"

    *People who wear flip-flops when it is raining or cold. (Mostly the college kids in this town.)

    These are a few of mine...more to come, I'm sure. :p

    My hubby's hates it when someone puts on their turn signal a mile before they actually turn, and people who slow down to approximately 3.7 miles per hour to make that turn, as well as slow drivers in the passing lane.

    Mine is people who don't use a turn signal at all, and when my hubby drives in the passing lane all the time.

    People who turn up the "music" in their cars so the whole community has to hear it.

    Store clerks who have to stop and chat with someone or talk on the phone while I'm trying to pay for my stuff.

    The neighbor's dogs coming to my house to take a dump.

    Doctors who reqiure you to make appointments and then let you sit in the waiting room for an hour before they will see you.

    I do this one, although 40 is considered cold here.

    -People chewing with their mouth open, do it in your house or in the barn with the horses but not where i have to look at it.

    -Shants, baggy shorts that go all the way down to your shoes. I always wonder if they are short pants or long shorts.

    -fingernails over 2 inches long. If they are to long for you to wipe you need to trim

    No.1 people who roar past you on the road just to slam on the brakes to make a turn.

    No.2 People that don't know their cars have a dim switch when they are behind you. I have found a cure for them though, My wife's car has electric mirrors, so I just turn them so their lights are reflecting right back in their eyes.

    I could probably go on for a long time but these are enough.

    1st thing is Rude people
    2nd is tailgaters..I will find the slowest car in the world and pace them to p*#s you off
    3rd. Dumb truck drivers who cant read or tell the difference between my Wharehouse and the Plant. If you see no other trucks and only 10 trailers thats the plant..besides it says in 6 ft letters Plant and is on a differnt road then the Wharehouse...this bugs me so much because while they have 48 and 53ft trailers I haul 57 ft trailer and need the room to spin around and back in and I cant do that when you are in my lot ...Get a map!

    I just love it when a business asks for your telephone # and tell you they will call right back,then never do.
    People who have full grocery carts,in the express line.
    Cars on a two lane road,stopped,and the drivers having an extended conversation.
    PWC's and water skiers that do'nt care if they are too close to shore and disrespecting your fishing area.
    Ya-Know after every sentence.
    Boaters that do'nt prepare their boat for launch untill they are on the ramps.
    Fast food wrappers and cups littering the sidestreets by the place they bought the items.
    Gas pumps that fail to give you a reciept.(express?)
    Better stop before I get a blood pressure spike:
