The roads here in Quebec and they are getting that way in Ontario too. I'm tired of roads so full of pot holes that it looks like I live in a third world country. It's a royal PITA. I can't just have my alloy wheels, with the 3 season tires, put on my car come summer. No, I have to have them balanced, 'cause the little bits of lead have fallen off from hitting so many potholes. grrr

Something that really sets me off is people who say "Dogs will get fat if they eat real food, rather than kibble".

Drives me NUTS. Because, kibble falls out of the sky in the wild, no? ;)

Wow that felt good to let off my chest, LOL

Right on the other side of Ontario from you, and I agree, it's BAD. But if they did the work right the first time, they wouldn't be back at it in another 3-4 yrs

Oh, that reminds me. Both the city I live in (Dollard-des-Ormeaux) and the CAA have links for posting pot holes. But, they are only good in winter. I want to report potholes that they haven't fixed since winter.

I think Ottawa used to have that, but it seems to have disappeared. A friend of mine bought a new car, hit a pothole on a high way ramp bend a few days later that threw off his wheels. He sent the mechanic bill to the city who got the pot hole fixed the next day and said the pot hole was never there

The roads are horrid, they keep expanding the highways, instead of fixing what's broken, and creating more coming issues.

people in countries with austerity programs that either complain about not being able to work 30+ hours per week, then retire at 55 years old and expect full health coverage and social security.

or worse, the rich folks in their countries that refuse to suck it up and take a loss bailing them out.

it's taking down the new world economy. a guy in peoria has no job because capital is locked up, really because people who feel austere about their centuries old lifestyle, who look down their noses at americans, l all the same refuse to work as hard as americans to earn the priveledge of retirement and healthvare.

well, you asked...

and i really dislike when people respond to others with an @ sign.
you can speak @ something, but you should speak to a person.

No comment. Actually, know-it-alls, that talk down to others.

The @ comes from facebook *and twitter, I think*. When you want to tag someone, so they get notified, because you're talking to them, you tag them.

People just bring it into other parts of the web

People who are RUDE!!!
People who are racist!!!
Dishonesty
Gossip
Children who are allowed to yell and scream in a restaruant
Improper clothes in the workplace or at church and at school!!!
Mistreatment of our best friends (animals) especially dogs and cats
I get really angry when people trapise into my yard and proceed to pick fruit, veggies, herbs what have you load them into bags and walk off like they own the place. Flowers too for that matter.I could run out there and have a great big fit!!!

People come into your yard and pick your stuff, Ma? That's theft! I would call the cops on them.
