So, what irritates you?
This is why I don't hold doors, or do anything nice for strangers, unless it's at work or somewhere that I need to act like a human being.

- People who don't use the turn signal or leave it on for no reason
- people who tailgate me when I'm driving 10-25 mph over the speed limit
- anyone who drives a minivan
- people who don't know what to do at a 4 way stop sign
- people who double park
- dogs barking, cats meowing, kids crying...I will actually say something to someone at a restaurant if their kid is annoying
Buy the ticket, take the ride, and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.― HST
