People who run red lights. It's an epidemic here! Also people who hold up traffic because they are texting and not driving. I almost yelled at a young girl today who blocked several cars from getting through the light while she was preoccupied. I did consider getting out my truck and grabbing her phone and throwing it.(Might save her life)

Want to piss me off big time? Assume or treat me as if I am stupid. It takes me all of three seconds to set them straight. Instant anger. "Do I look like I have Alzheimer's?" in a rather nasty tone. Treat me as if I am stupid and I will embarass you and put you in your place. They can't apoligize enough.

greg, umm ... dude. you get annoyed when babetoo posts in all lowercase? or are you just taking a poorly thought out simple minded shot? because the former would be pretty mean considering babe has been feeling lonely.

I hate it when people think that making plural's is just a matter of adding 's to make it plural.

(Please note the intended self humor in the above.)

I realize that not everyone is computer savvy. Specially the elderly. I don't even see the errors in spelling or their typing. If I can read it and understnd what they are sayinig, that is all I ask. As I get older, I have become more forgiving of others and less critical. Unless they really are dumb because they choose to be.

Oh, I know another one. Writing "to" when the person means "too". Sometimes it's obvious, but other times I don't understand until I "think it out loud".
