    I'm saying if people have the money to get/pay for something like seats up front of an airplane, good for them, but if they think they automatically deserve special treatment above others that have to scrap for just one flight because they're under the impression that they are above them from a societal point of view, they are slime.

    So if that describes you, then yes.

    Or put them in the back window area.

    Airbag goes off or if the driver has to brake suddenly, that's a good way to kill their own dog.

    I see people occasionally riding in the front seat with a baby on their lap. Incredible stuff.

    I also get on the lane I need to turn from too early and ride it all the way to my turn.

    People who bring their dogs into a store. I love dogs; if you want to be with them, take them on a walk or to a park.

    I would imagine some of the people who stand up as soon as the plane lands are doing so just because they are in some degree of pain or discomfort for sitting so long. (This includes me & my lousy spine.)

    I don't feel the need to rush out, and almost always let others go ahead of me; I just like standing. This is part of why I always pick an aisle seat if possible.

    What about people who have such a low self-image that they believe everyone who has earned any sort of perks from being a frequent customer of a place/company is slime because of the benefits those loyal customers have earned? What do you call those people?

    I have a mix. I have anxiety when waiting to deboard a plane. Not sure why. I just need to get the hell off it. Also, bad back so standing does feel good.

    Because if this thread. I’m going to start changing lanes and go various speeds every 100 yards. I will just hit the flashers since I will be changing lanes so much

    I know reading is hard, but I’ve said in multiple posts that I don’t park myself in the left lane.

    Agreed, like the ones who think because they drive really fast they have more rights than others.

    I haven't had time to add anything to the topic so far, but I did a quick skim of the thread and it's a fun read.

    Definitely can relate to the grocery store pet peeve discussion. I could write a book about that. And if I hadn't had so many people hinder my shopping efficiency over the years, I would've had enough extra time to work on the damn thing :)

    Don't even get me started on language/writing pet peeves. I'll become disorientated.

    Regarding 4-way stop: I admit I'm overly hesitant in some situations when there's at least one "tie." I understand the procedure, but I'm not always confident the other drivers are equally aware. If there's any doubt, I defer and choose which goal I want to defend.

    Part of the allure is NOT having to mingle with the unwashed masses for any longer than needed. I've never been a fan of standing in lines any longer than necessary.

    Also if you're one of the first on, you can look at each and every person walking down the aisle and fantasize about that super hot person that MIGHT be your seat mate.

    AND you can stake claim to the armrest.

    And after re-reading your post I say YEAH!!!!!!! I will always try to block the douchenozzle in row 25 from cutting in front. I'm a man and everything is a test of manhood.

    That's only gross if you get splashed by the dryer and you DIDN'T use the sink first.

    Right, and I notice who's doing that pretty quickly. But there are the people that stand up, grab their bag and inch towards the front, which happens often.

    Not more rights - just more important with more important places to go. Like Subway.

    How is buying something and expecting to receive what you bought getting special treatment?
