    When I let someone merge in line during a traffic backup and they don’t give me the wave thanking me.

    That’s the whole point....both of us are already doing something wrong—neither driver in that equation has the legal or moral high ground

    Anyone that has to fly that many miles deserves perks.

    I hate drivers who feel they are the arbiters of speed laws.

    Passive/aggressive behavior. Yes, I did list this after the little peeing match that i just read about left lane drivers. I'm blunt and to the point for the most part, many people hate it and I don't care. At least you don't have to try to decipher what I mean.

    Never understood one thing about air travel. If you are a perks member. Why do you get on the plane first. That seems more of a punishment. You should get to get on last.

    Every.Single.Time. This boggles my mind. I understand if people have a connecting flight to catch, but I feel those instances don't amount to the level it is done. People stand up, then have to wait 10 minutes. Not to mention what you said, being cut off, which is pretty rude.

    I traveled a couple years out of college for work in a sales role. Can't say I miss it, but I do miss the perks. It's how hotel stays were paid for on my honeymoon. Mine was mostly driving and hotel stays, but to me, if you travel that often perks should be in place. It isn't an easy thing overall, with work and home life balance, and I was single then. I can't imagine doing it now. I don't understand the gripe of it, let the people on who need extra time like the elderly. Then let the first class, or vice versa. Any business person knows you have to treat your regular clientele with a little more attention, that's just running a good business. Hotels don't make their money by catering to the families and their play dates on the weekends, its the road warriors during the week.

    An interesting thing I encountered this morning. I like that people use their blinkers, but common sense says timing can be a problem. What's everyone's thoughts on an early blinker user when merging on the interstate? I'm coming up on an SUV from MN, they turn on their blinker and I hit my brakes hard thinking that they were going to get over. They didn't merge yet, but how am I supposed to know that? I notice this is a trend in certain states or other countries.

    But, by parking yourself in the Left lane, you are claiming your speed is more right than anyone trying to pass you.

    What are you trying to say>?

    . I mean you spend more at Starbucks you will get a free coffee at some point.
    Jersey Mikes has a program of earning points, for each dollar you spend eventually you get a free sandwich.

    I have flown over a million miles on Delta, They give me benefits of being a loyal customer,. Which means things like priority boarding, upgrades to first class if available.
    They like the fact I fly with them all the time.

    So to recap, I earn a free coffee, I earn a free sandwich, and I earn the opportunity to board first because I patronize these companies a lot

    This makes me slime?

    Couple of bathroom-related pet peeves:
    - People that don’t flush, especially after taking a big/nasty dump. No need to make me possibly throw up because of your carelessness.
    - Not wiping the toilet seat. I need that 100% dry when I walk in the stall.
    - Sharp receptacles in urinals. Don’t need piss to bounce off them onto my clothes/shoes.

    The new blade hand dryers that blow the water in your face off your hands as you place them in.

    Re: standing on airplanes. Sometimes I’ll stand up, but that’s usually because I want to stand and stretch after the flight. If you still wait your turn I don’t see it as big of a deal

    Those things suck. You have like a half inch clearance on each side so half the time you rub your hand against it.

    Fans that take my favorite spot in the South End Zone even though I claimed that area for the season. Also, fans that block my view inside the South End Zone by sitting in the back row.
