Are you sure it was beer bellies and not "something else", or was that your of saying "something else" in order to get past the naughty word checker?

Of course, there are rare cases of women in spandex suffering from both- beer bellies and "something else".

I hate that too. I think many of them do so that other idots coming up behind them can't move ahead. What really bugs me is when a driver behind me cuts over to the freeway merging lane pretending to be entering just so they can move ahead 1 or 2 cars.

I own a computer software company so I know better. What's up with the every site needs a user name and password? Does it need to be that secure that someone else might use it? I can see banking and sensitive sites but come on, 300 user names and passwords is just too much for me... and every site has different rules. Must be 8 characters with a number or must not contain any letters or numbers that are the same.... My banking site requires me to re-do my password every 30 days with a new one and one I haven't already used! What a PITA....

Many of you have already posted some of the things that drive me nuts but the worst, at least for me, is to watch someone park in a handicap space, then get out of the car, or in some cases, their big pickup truck and walk into the store as if nothing is wrong. It was always a pet peeve of mine but it has become even more so since my daughter was in a terrible car accident several years ago and had her back broken. She is now paralyzed from the waist down and has to use a wheel chair. Many times she has to drive around the parking lot at Walmart waiting for a handicap space to open up. Her van has a ramp that comes out the side so she really needs to use the Handicap Space marked for Vans. If you can walk you do not need to use the Handicap Space!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This really drives me nuts:bangh ead:

Boh---We have a woman in our "over 55" gated community who has a handicap thingy hanging from her mirror. She whips into a handicap parking space and goes in and plays water volleyball.

As others have noted, many of mine have already been highlighted. The one that really gets me boiling are the drivers pulling clear up to the front of a long line of vehicles in the on ramp and cut in. Why some folks allow this is beyond me. At rush hour or perhaps some special event it seems I always see this going on. I guess some folks are just too important to be expected to *wait* in line like the rest of us.
However, it is nice to be retired and not have to drive these danged SoCal Freeways every day. Never could figure out the term freeway, these SoCal parking lots use more gas at idle than most states use all day long.

What gets me are people that pull up to a dump station, get all suited up as though they are about to enter the Japenese nuclear reactor, then spend the next half hour or more doing what I call the dumping ballet. Gloves, hairnets, safety goggles, hard toed safety boots, Good lord, these are not radio active turds, they came from YOU. Then comes the hose through the window and decontaminating all the equipment and carefully stowing all the equipment after a thorough wipe down.
In the meantime I have run out of fuel and fallen asleep.

Why do drivers merging onto a freeway in front of me always want to be the pace car.
For crying out loud - get up to speed.

People that stay in the left lane and then hang waaaaaaaay back. Then slow down, speed up, slow down, speed up.

Boh - it may apply to the people you've seen, but the handicap is not always visible. For example, a people I know that have heart and lung problems that don't allow them to walk more than a few steps at a time. It is reprehensible though of the ones that are using a spouses hang tag and the spouse is NOT in the vehicle.
