People who bother me...

So, maybe it's the stress at work, or another photo of Fred Schrader next to expensive cars serving as entry to this week's Insider, but I thought I'd start a thread where I/we can vent about people who bother us.

At this moment- Fred Schrader. I don't want $26 cigars, but I'm sure the fancy Cabs you produce are great...I can just never get them.

Also Joe Buck because, well...Joe Buck is the worst!

I'll play. I'm going to say the guy who bought the house down the street from us who, come to find out, couldn't afford the hot-water heater let alone the whole house. House goes into foreclosure, now on the market for a whopping $82.00 a sq. foot. Not great for property values in our neighborhood.

Not to mention the bank which obviously did proper due diligence before providing a loan...
Oh, I could go on for days about types of people that bother me. My current rage is with bluetooth guy. There is this guy in my office that walks around the halls talking on his bluetooth thing like the whole company is his f’ing office. If you are on a call, go in your office and close the f’ing door like the rest of us. You don’t need to show everyone you are important by having conference calls on the go.

I was at the airport last week waiting for my bags and a different bluetooth guy comes out just to irritate me. I get you might need to talk on the phone and get you bags at the same time, but hang back and watch for your bag and talk in a normal voice. Oh no, not Bluetooth guy! He wanted everyone to hear his conversion about some real estate deal (that actually sounds really ghetto) he was doing to make up for something missing in his life. Not enough hugs from daddy? Small wee wee?

Use your bluetooth in the car and leave the rest of us out of it. You are only making yourself look desperate for attention!!!

What better place to find lots of people who bother me?

How about the ones who can't board a plane when their group number is called? Which part of Group 2 didn't you understand? Bang

Or the ones who go through security with liquids in their bags? What planet have you been on for the past 10 years?

Or the ones who insist on carrying on a bag which is obviously not going to fit in the overhead or under the seat?

Or the ones who stand up while the plane is still on an active taxiway and the flight attendant has just finished telling everyone to keep the seat belts fastened?

This could be a long thread.

I was at the airport this morning and was thinking of the TSA....

How about the people in front of you who put their seats back in coach?

Or the parents who don't change their baby's diaper before boarding and now everyone within 10 feet needs to hear their baby wailing?

My non-airport annoyance are the motorcyclists with stupid sounding exhaust noises.
A few years ago I made Stef promise to hit me in the back of the head with a shovel if I ever wear a cell phone holder on my belt. I modified that to include clipping anything into or onto my ears some time later.

Jaye has standing orders to use a fork to the forehead if I ever give anyone the 'wait hand' who is trying to take my drink order.

It's important we don't become these people and I like to have support from friends in that. Smile
I'll play

Drivers who get into the least occupied lane knowing that they will have to merge soon...and then get pissed when you won't let them in. There is a stretch of road I travel everyday going home to work. Road is 3 lanes, with the right lane leading to the entrance of the expressway. The other 2 lanes get a bit backed up with all the through traffic, but it is never terrible -- maybe takes 8-10 minutes at worse to travel the stretch that would take 1-2 with no traffic. But wait in line..heck no, when you can fly up the right hand lane and then block that lane when you can't get over. And you can tell those that are just being a@@es from those that don't travel the road normally and just get caught in that lane. Do these people just cut in line at the grocery store too...wait
Suppliers who can't read very clearly stated quote requests. In almost every case the sales contact is more educated than I am. They will re-produce and flood the gene pool with future engineeers, air traffic controllers and doctors. Just this morning I had three of them reply with a per pound price when I expressly stated that I required a per piece price.

The intellectually lazy.

Most people in a WalMart, either customers or employees.

"Proud" Cub fans. Razz
More airport annoyances. The guy at the baggage claim that picks up every single black suitcase, stairs at the tag and throws it back when he figures out it is not his. I know some of these bags look the same, but looking at almost every one?

The people boarding the plane in front of you that pause and look at every single number as if they are out of order. Row 20 is not right after row 3. You have a ways to go!!!

The pocket protectors of a new generation.
The two Barista's at my local Starbucks. I'm in there pretty well every day, day in / day out, and every day they freakin ask me if I want freakin room in my freakin coffee for freakin dairy! Hello, its me. I was here yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that, and my answer has always been the same!

Bang
