When I park in the front spot at school.. and someone makes their own spot next to it because they are too lazy. I complained to security at my school.. mainly I want my car in plain view... and I don't want to get door dinged!!! And even when there is snow... people know where the lines are... but are lazy fat slobs who don't care. They block traffic too.

The Santa Fe (lazy POS) made their own spot... I park on the line so the car to my right doesn't ding me. But naturally the people park where they shouldn't, and all sideways, angled, and close to me. I am thinking of leaving notes on their cars.


Also... I work at Advance Auto.. not AdvanceD auto. There is no D! Drives me nuts. Get it right folks!!!

Also, CBS sitcoms! They absolutely suck. Big Bang Theory is bad, but nowhere as bad as 2 Broke Girls. That needs to be cancelled. But when it gets cancelled, another shortlived show you'll never hear of again will debut... it is a never ending cycle.



IT IS NOT FUNNY CBS!!!



End of rant... for now.

People who stay in the right lane right up until it ends because they want to be in front. Also, people who pass me and then drive slightly slower than me, or people who drive fast until they start texting and slow down to 10mph below the max speed limit. Actually, I hate most drivers on the road. Also, I especially hate people who make me pass them at 80+ mph on a 50 mph road.

I love cake. I AM THE CAKE BOSS!

People who get on the interstate at 35MPH. It's 75, people, you need to be around 55 at least by the end of the ramp! I had this happen twice just today-first was old people in an Escape, the second was a hippie in a Toyota Prius.

At least I assume it was a hippie. I went past him too fast to see. (Thank you, Mr. Duratec!)

Also, 99.9% of Toyota drivers in general. There's something...wrong...about them. They don't drive intelligently.

Amen to both of you! I especially know what you mean about the parking at schools, I am in the lot that is directly across from the campus (best one) and I try to always get there at least 15 minutes early before class starts so I can have one of the spots right up against the fence, right next to the guard's little shack. I hate not parking up there, and having to go down with the door-dingers in the rest of the lot.


Hmm, what else...People who drive the same speed in both lanes so nobody can get past them.

Heh, that's why I said 99.9%. I know a few Toyota drivers that aren't crazy, but most of them just don't drive in what I would consider a logical manner.

How about people stopped in front of you at an intersection who fail to proceed thru once the light turns green because they are too busy on the phone!

I dont think this forum is large enough for me to list ALL my gripes

But here's a few:
Left lane dicks(people who insist on being in the left lane going slow)
People who insist on riding my ass when I'm doing 60 in a 45mph work zone
People who don't know how to merge on highways
RUDENESS! 'nuff said
The cold is wearing thin on my bones....


THe biggest beef I have lately is these holier than thou managers at work that dont listen to you because you don't have VP, pres, director, manager after your name. I mean you are asking for MY help, then question the way I repair things. You sell real estate, I work for the IT department, if I tell you this is the way it HAS to be done, dont fu****g question me............ don't tell me that it's 'not acceptable'......... the company pays me to do this job because YES, I DO know more than you do. Until you do my job, or work for the IT department don't question us(someone made the top of the **** list, and the bottom of the 'important' list today).

Oh and did I say RUDENESS?? Yea..........
