Little things that drive you nuts

Thought this would be fun.
Here is one of mine. Twist ties on bread. Can someone please tell them righty tighty lefty loosey? To make matters worse have you seen the crumby (pun intended) little tape closures they have on bread wrappers? Might just as well rip the bag open.

ditto! I'm left-handed and never twist the darned thing the correct way the first time. Just how does the bread company expect us to remove that sticky tie without squishing the bread or tearing the bag? Ha! I foiled them, I stopped eating bread (but it was because of my diet anyway).
My personal rant is the oblivious drivers talking on a cell phone while everyone else is attempting to avoid them. Note to those folks: no call is so important you do not have time to pull off the road first.

Ray that activity is illegal in many places but the law does not deter some.

The drivers that lag on demand feed lights and then speed up to go through the light as it is turning red.: blink:

To further elaborate on this, try women on their cell phones....in narrow, twisty parking garages....driving their HUGE SUV's that hog up entire driving lanes....totally oblivious to other drivers, because their mantra is, "Hey, I'm bigger than you. YOU watch out for ME !!!!"

There were a few times when I was almost taken out by these yahoos. If you're gonna drive a big-ass SUV, please know your damn dimensions and don't drive it like you OWN the whole damn parking garage. Thank you.

Shees....

Drivers (?) who enter a limited acess highway and do not steadily accelerate to the speed limit. They fool around going various speeds until you start to pass then floor it. I have followed one of these up to 3/4 mile when I was stuck in my lane and could not pass. They eventually get going but it is a pain when stuck behind one. Especially when towing and you lose your speed and momentum going up hill.

Drivers who bust their butts to get up to you in traffic and then just hover on your rear with no attempts to rush anymore. Not looking for drafting, just wanting a ticket for following too close. When it comes to passing, they wait until your near or on a no pass zone area, then attempt pass.

Here's another one:

Left lane hogs.

Here's a note to these d-bags: NOT everyone has to drive the EXACT SAME speed limit as you.

The left lane is for passing. Use it as such.

That's called drafting( to save fuel ) LOL. It works differently in Nascar.
