    I have two bothering me this morning

    Mini van's or any cars that drive side by side in the fast and slow lane and have no idea that they are causing people to want to smash into the back of them

    People who don't let their sneeze go. I never understood why people hold a sneeze in when it feels so so good to just let it go.

    So what do you got?

    1) Left lane highway drivers
    2) People who block the right turn lane at an intersection on a multi-lane street when they could have gotten into the left lane to go straight. Sometimes it's unavoidable but 98% of them are just unaware, stupid drivers. The line of 20 cars behind them doesn't phase them.

    When you are going down a street with lots of stoplights and every time you get a green light and get up to speed the next light turns red while the line of cars behind you is long and there is either 0 or 1 car waiting to go.

    1. Swerving texters

    2. People crossing the street mid-block that walk at an angle in the same direction you are going while staring at their phone. It sounds very specific, but I encounter these people every damn day. They must crave death to continue playing that game.

    When I'm running on the track and a large group of people are walking very slow taking up all the lanes. Really messes with your mojo. (just had this happen this morning)

    People delivering packages placing the package on the first step in the rain instead of by the door under the soffit and stoop where it is dry.

    And the biggest one... Tavern Hawks and Hokroaches

    People (lets be real, women) that ask you if they should go to the bathroom.
    You're at a restaurant and getting ready to leave and they say "Should I go to the bathroom here or wait until we get home or go to the next place?"

    That's why horns were invented.

    Or the guy that blocks the right turn, as i mentioned, who could easily pull up a bit and let people through...but doesn't have the brain power to figure that out.

    People who don't use turn signals (unsafe and dumb). When a truck passes a truck on the interstate and it takes 30 minutes to complete. People who ask a question only to really use it as a way to tell you what they want you to hear. People who interrupt. People who don't drink a beverage with their meals (one of my best friends does this and it drives me nuts)

    Lately it's been 4 way stops. Apparently they are more difficult than I make them.

    Groups that walk 5 wide at the grocery store, mall, aisle, etc. Usually walking slow while I'm trying to get in and out of Target.

    Yeah I don't get it. I ask him every time how does he cleanse his pallet when he changes foods to eat? Sometimes I yell....sometimes I stare with my mouth open. Other times I just passively dismiss it that he's an idiot....next I'll seek counseling.

    Following someone driving slow in the left lane that has ample room to get over. Then once you go to pass them on the right, they speed up so you can't get in front of them. Then they slow back down and drive the same speed as the person next to them and box you in.

    Even if I'm driving faster than everyone in the left lane, if someone comes flying up behind me, I make every effort to get over to let them by. I hate having someone driving on my bumper.

    People who arbitrarily drive slower than the prevailing traffic. Sunday drivers should do that on Sundays.
