    Over vs under? The reason for under is that you use less. Old janitor trick.

    People who don't turn their lights on in the fog. They probably don't know how to turn on their lights manually.

    People who aren't aware (don't read, don't vote, don't care).
    People who don't like dogs.

    I’m on the road A LOT and I see stupid **** constantly. I’ve called in 3 people within the last year for flying by me the wrong way on the diagonal. A number of years ago I was first on the scene for a head on collision where a couple people died from the same thing. I’ve called in a couple obvious drunk drivers within the same time frame. I’ve somehow managed to avoid a lot of stupid people with the amount of miles I drive.

    I had a co-worker recently tell me, "I hate being late, but I'm rarely on time".

    I grew up in a house that ran on Lombardi time.

    Apparently when people are grocery shopping their self-awareness goes completely out the window

    You are making the mistake of believing that most people have self-awareness.

    This is true.

    But I still don’t understand why picking out a can of soup requires you to block the entire aisle.

    I'm an over-the-top guy, but that's a good point.

    When people use multiple pieces of equipment at the gym at once. I hate going up to an empty machine then having someone come up from across the building and say “I was using that”

    Set up your own gym at home if you don’t want to share with others. Who are also paying to use the gym.

    Park the cart on one side of the aisle to look at items on the other. Or two people talking park their carts blocking the aisle.

    If you don't know what you want, don't stand next to your cart while you decide.

    Other supermarket peeves:

    People that put cooler/frozen items on some random shelf when they decide they don't want it. Put it back in the cooler/freezer asshat!

    People that can't put their cart into a cart return or someone that curbs their cart. I bet I grab a stray cart from the parking lot 75% of the time I go to the store.

    When people are turning onto a two lane road and take the wide sweeping lazy turn into the far lane, STAY IN YOUR LANE! If you use your blinker because you need to get into the far lane then you did a fine job but if you're just lazy, you're doing it wrong.

    Edit: Especially when in a block or two they change lanes to the near lane, the one they should of turned into in the first place.

    Agree!

    I think that there should have to be a separate, much slower line specifically designated for those buying lottery tickets. If there is only 1 cashier, the lottery ticket buyer should have to wait for all other paying customers to finish their transactions first.

    People who talk on their cell phone while in the bathroom and doing their business. I also don't like it when people try to talk to me while in the bathroom while I am doing my business.
