    Corollary to the pet peeve about wives starting serious conversations right before you fall asleep. My wife does it . . . then falls right asleep while I answer . . . and then I can't sleep.

    People that park on the street in front of my house instead of in front of their house.

    I'm talking about the TREATMENT OF OTHER PEOPLE by what they could or couldn't afford.

    People who park in the street when there are no vehicles in the driveway and have room to park them. Have one dude who parks so his vehicle is right across the street from my mom's driveway, but in front of his house although down the street so its right near the edge of his property. For about a year their daughter and SIL were living with them and they would park on my mom's side on both sides of her driveway. These streets then become one lane streets. With an elderly mom, she really struggled to leave her driveway let alone look for traffic with these douches loading up around her driveway. They made sure their's was clean so they didn't have any trouble.

    People who see you eating at your desk at work who come over to look at it and ask how it is.

    I'm at my desk at work eating cafeteria food - how do you THINK it is?

    I believe that is referred to as a "ROLLING ROAD BLOCK"

    When the good part in a song comes on and the Navigation lady comes on to tell you that you have to turn in 10 miles. Shut up lady I need about a half mile warning and you just ruined that part of the song. Seems to happen when I listen to Rage Against the Machine and they are getting ready for the raging part.

    If I interpreted your statement:

    "but if I’m in the left lane doing 10mph over the limit, no amount of tailgating me or flashing lights will get me to move over. "

    incorrectly, I apologize. It left the impression that you stayed in the left hand lane too long.

    Encountered this one yesterday.

    Drivers who drive in the left lane at speed X while there is no open lane to get around them. When the right lane is clear enough they have no excuse for getting in it they will go X+20 to make sure no one passes them. When they get back to where they are passing again they are travelling at X again.

    Oh my, this x 100. I was just about to add to it until I saw BCClone add it. Not that I'm against this part, but we have neighbors across the street who are a few years out of college. Cars come and go, as well as new people living there. But when there are 4-5 cars lined up along the edge of our property and not a single one in the driveway, that annoys the crap out of us. I get that with a 3 stall garage sometimes it can get tricky pulling out of, but when no one parks in the driveway? Really?

    Dated a girl last year who was a fan of this, but with the “What are you thinking about?” question that has no right answer.

    Just getting the point across without the argument being about speeding/not speeding. I have had people do this at 65 in a 70 and I have had them do it at 55 in 60. I have also had people do it at 75 in a 70 and they will literally kick it up to somewhere over 90 to make sure no one passes them.

    Wrong. The right answer is to tell them some version of you’re thinking about them....in other words, lie
