    People who complain that they don't have any money or aren't getting promotions but they repeatedly call in sick or job hop.

    When people throw away something that can be recycled, when there's a recycling bin literally right next to the trash can.

    Also, when people clap when the plane takes off or lands. I mean I get it for an obvious tricky landing (i.e.: an emergency landing), but still...

    The "I don't know what speed I'm doing, so I react to the other lane drivers".

    Ex: You find yourself behind these people, often in the left lane. Someone in the right lane turns on their blinker to turn right and starts to slow down. Your person in front of you in the left lane is just tracking their speed and slow down with them. Now you are going 20 under the speed limit before they start to think for themselves again.

    When someone does not use the cruise control on a car and I am going the exact same speed and I have to keep passing them, then they speed up and pass me, then I pass them, then they speed up and pass me again. Dude pick a speed and roll with it.

    A lot of a parents' terminology changes during the toddler years and they have a tendency to let those terms slip even when junior is not around.

    On the golf course, typically a par 3, waiting for the group in front of you to get off the green.

    When they finish the hole get back to the cart, then start writing the score down, cleaning their club, looking through the golf bag for who knows but still sitting in the cart just off the green!

    There is plenty of time to do all that on the next tee box

    I am not a good golfer and don't golf very often. When we do, we play ready golf. (When you are ready you go ahead and hit not matter who is out unless another of your foursome is right behind you.) I don't want to be holding up other golfers just because "I like to get my money's worth" on each hole.

    You see it quite a bit in Virginia as well. Many/most of the rural areas don't have trash collection, you have to drive to a trash collection station. It seems that many people just toss it.

    Why does this bother people so much? I'm not standing up because I think I'm going to get off faster, I'm standing up because I'm tall and my knees and rear end hurt like h*** after sitting in a cramped seat for 3.5 hours.

    100% with you on this. I've actually been told by a neighbor that my hearing is too good because I complained about his dogs barking for hours, months on end while he was at work and their dogs were outside unattended. He also asked me what he was supposed to do about it. I don't know, maybe don't leave your THREE noisy mutts outside all day when no one is around?

    He better figure out what to do about it because the majority of cities have noise ordinances and owners can be fined for a dog barking incessantly.

    I followed the A-hole on the left for 5 miles through town as he drove the speed limit minus 5mph. I turned off before I could see if he managed to make the pass, but they probably just hit the Canadian border.

    Drivers who get on their phone to look at texts, Facebook, whatever, as soon as traffic stops.

    Because 99.9% of them are not paying attention then when traffic starts to move and by the time they finally move it is just in time for them to get through as the light turns red again. Just happened this morning which reminded me, but it happens a lot.
