Idiots driving in the rain with emergency flashers on. Don't know about other states but in Florida that is an offense. Get off the interstate and park if you're scared to drive and that makes it safer for everyone.

And a runner up to number 1: My fellow RVers that park at the pumps and go inside for restroom, snacks and who know what else. If you gotta go inside please pull your rig over to a "non-pump" parking space.

Litter Bugs

I was behind a pickup truck yesterday when they put the drivers window down and tossed out a Mcdonald's bag full of their trash! I leaned on my airhorns to kindly let them know I saw what they did, They were so grateful for me reminding them they were complete idiots that they waved at me. I felt sorry for him afterwards because he must of had an injury where only one finger would work on his hand.

At Disney World we were at an outside show in their huge amphitheater. After the show was over and people were pushing and shoving and walking on the seats to get a few people ahead of the rest of the crowd, I saw a huge amount of trash left behind. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THAT???? What on earth possesses people to bring in food and leave behind the remnants of trash?

My Pet Peeve is the Litter Bug

How about the thousands of drivers that drive with the PARKing lights on.

Parking lights are for, duh, parking.

Totally agree! I'll never understand why someone would do that!

My big pet peeve: You pull into a fairly empty campground mid-week lots of empty sites. The office has to "assign" a spot (really?) so of course they assign you the spot right-next-door to another rig. Really? I can't be, 5 sites away? Then when you go in to inquire about moving further off on your own they look at you and say "I've never had anyone request to move before" (huh?)

If they only knew how much of their tax money is wasted picking up litter from the roadsides.....never mind, they are the type of people who just don't care about anything but themselves.

I know the subject of parking in the handicap zones has come up before here in this thread, but I just had to relay this experience that happened today.

We were at yet another outlet mall, where the copilot was doing, well whatever they do at the malls, and I was sitting under a pavilion close to the parking lot reading a book. Two 20 +- year old woman came jogging up and stopped waiting for the traffic to clear jogging in place. I overheard part of their conversation and it went like this "I just love jogging to keep my body in shape" said the first one. "Yes, and with that big tennis competition coming up next weekend I need to burn off some calories and get ready to beat the pants off ...." Right then they crosses the road and went right to their large SUV and climbed in yacking the entire time. Guess where the SUV was parked? Yep, in a handicap parking spot right up front!

So their handicap was ???????????

I have been shopping for a new motorhome lately and my pet peeve is manufacturers that offer only a few options, none of which I want, but the dealers all get them for their inventory models. And then I have a long list of options I do want, that the manufacturer will not do, so I have to have them installed aftermarket.

You are wanting to trade in your new 2016 already? How come?
