    I haven't added any to this thread...but this got me thinking.....to go with yours....i get irrationally frustrated when someone does let it go and EVERYONE in the room (i'm thinking work setting, etc) feel the need to "bless" them, find tissue, etc.

    Two questions:
    1) Why do you put the dollar sign at the end of the number instead of in front like everyone else?
    2) Why are we supposed to put the dollar sign in front when we say it at the end?

    The couch is sometimes much warmer than that frigid bed.

    Agree strongly to these except 3. I have had pulmonary embolisms 3 times and now on blood thinners for life. Frankly I get up as much as possible just to prevent blood clots. And I drink water constantly. But I also do whatever I can to get the aisle seat. Other people have bad prostates. Others have meds that make them pee. Sometimes we don’t know what others are going through.

    Remembered one more as I observed it today. People that walk or jog on the street when we have wonderful wide sidewalks in Ankeny. When i ran a lot sometimes I would jog on blacktop instead of concrete sidewalks because of the softer impact, but made sure I was off the road when cars came.

    The worst was one awful slick bad weather day and two ladies walking WITH the flow of traffic with a dog. I almost hit them as it was around a curve and visibility was bad. And it wasn’t because the snow was on the sidewalks as this was a slushy weather.

    Any time someone's pet peeve got brought up at work I had a co-worker say "what's a peeve and why would you want to pet it?"

    - waiting on anything.....lines, stop lights, doctor/dentist offices, being put on hold....the list goes on and on.

    - as mentioned by others, the guy in the right lane that you attempt to pass that intentionally or unintentionally speeds up as you start to pass. Also, agree with "left lane" drivers that refuse to get over.

    - hair in the bathroom sink.

    - people that don't say thank you when you hold the door for them or don't hold the door for you if you're literally right behind them.

    - down here if a driver is trapped in a driveway/parking lot and someone is kind enough to wait and allow you to pull into the street you always acknowledge them with some sort of thank you gesture. If you don't, you're considered a jerk.

    - robo calls of any kind

    People who sit and wait for a parking spot when they could go to the end of the row, park, get out and walk into the store while sitting and waiting for the “better spot”.

    People who place insulated lunch bags in the work fridge.

    It’s scientific fact that the average persons IQ drops 50 points as soon as they secure a shopping cart in hand.

    People who look for the UPC code when scanning things at self checkouts. Here is a hint, the code is almost always on the bottom, back or lower side so if you just run it across the scanner at a slight angle, you are probably good.

    People who make a significant investment by purchasing a home and then don't spend any time maintaining them. Personally, I don’t think much of people who don’t take care of their homes, no matter the value of the home. Show some pride of ownership for gods sakes.

    That's brutal. I admit I chuckled, probably because I don't have to deal with that.

    My spousal annoyance comes on the opposite end.

    Since my work/sleep pattern is later than hers, she’s usually up for a couple of hours before I arise on weekends. As soon as I come downstairs, she likes to skip the "good morning" pleasantries and go straight into The Airing of Grievances. I get to start the day hearing about my recent failures.

    Edit/clarification: I'm not against the criticism (in a majority of cases, it's warranted). Just allow me to wake up a little bit first. :)

    Not a spouse, but a boss would do this. My first job out of college I'd walk in to my office and sit down. It wouldn't be 30 seconds and he'd buzz me to his office. Great way to start the day.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate, but when I'm at a restaurant and I run out of my drink while I am eating.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't eat if I don't have drink. I drink often as I eat. And I don't care if there is a glass of water on our table I could use. I didn't pay $3 for a Coke so I can fill up on water. Ahhhh! I get mad again just thinking of all the times this happens. I swear I spend a third of my time in the restaurant just looking for our waiter/waitress. Many times I just go to where they refill drinks and just ask anyone to fill it for me as I wait for my meal to go cold. I'd better stop now.

    Here in West Virginia there's all this commotion about a pipeline going in. What irks me is that it's 'accepted' to just throw crap out your car window here. 'Litter', by far, is more environmentally damaging than a pipeline. And yet, it's just lazy people with no respect who do so. I've always thought I think this way because of this 1971 commercial when I was a kid:
