I do subscribe to the motto "live life each day like it is your last, one day it will be". I guess some may be trying to get there early.

Totally agree Gordon! As the old saying goes, "I'm ready to go, just don't want to be on the next bus out"

Some one that has more vehicles for there spot or just don't want to park in there spot. I have arrived at a campground and someone's vehicle is parked in your spot and there not around. Or you go out and come back and there is a vehicle parked in your camp site. The worst is when you get up to leave have a long drive and the campers next to you have there vehicle blocking the front of your camper so that you can't hook up and they went out for the day.

I had that happen to me once. I had the vehicle towed and left a note for the neighbor and also notified the office.

I bet those folks won't be doing that again once they ended up paying the tow fee plus storage fee and other fees just to get their vehicle back.

He was about a hundred yards past us when the rearmost of his 3 right side wheels came off and went along the shoulder then down into the trees. We got past him Okay as he fishtailed to a stop in a cloud of smoke.

What could possibly be worth it to do 75 pulling a fiver?
I had a political science professor in college who classified people into two categories:

Homo sapien: the thinking man.

Homo boobien: the unthinking man.

Guess what this guy is classified as?

I think that common sense has left the building.

I know this one has been mentioned before, but I think we can all use a reminder because I still see it happening!

I see folks start a thread asking for help with some problem, get numerous replies and suggestions, then NEVER post there again, acknowledging the help that people were trying to give them!

I hope none of us will be guilty of this!

My apologies if this has been mentioned before, I have not read all entries.

Do bugs actually aim at the drivers face? It seems that a perfectly clean windshield will always get hit directly in front of my face with the first bug splat. How do they know where to kill themselves to insure they leave the most noticeable display of their innards?

That's what happens when you're a handsome guy and all the bugs are female!

Well, I read the first 10 pages the came here so here I go.

1. People who pass pull in front of you and slow down.
2. Blinker usage, not using them and late signalers, I am the later as here in California if you signal to change lanes the person in the next lane will speed up so I move then signal that I am in fact moving over. ( I only use this tactic in California as in other states people seem to be more courteous)
4. When slowing down to stop and a driver dives into your safe zone ( area needed to stop)
5. Slow children at play signs in RV parks.
6. Screaming Children, I am almost deaf but the frequency of a child's voice I can hear perfectly, now add a hearing aid, ouch.
7. Restaurant hosts that try to seat us around children, I love children but not when I'm eating and they are screaming.
8. It has been mentioned Gas pumps that are out of receipts, solution, take a picture.

I am equipped for that, but the owner won't be happy with the way their vehicle looks after I move it.
Another option is what Dr4 said, have it towed at the owner's expense.
I don't put up with *ss holes.

What's your "pet peeve" ?

The only thing I would add is that besides not being able to fix Stupid you can't fix people who are Ignorant or Inconsiderate either.

This isn't Europe, it's the U.S.A.

Drives me crazy!
I just toss it back to 'em.
