These are universal hates I think we can all be guilty of at some time or another.

I pulled out infront of a lady on the roundabout today. I wanted her to honk me and flip me off, but she didn't. She was a better person than I.

my main pet peeves are ......

People who think they are crap when clearly they aren't (this goes for thin people who think their fat)

and people who say one thing to your face then lie when your back is turned. it might just be a high school thing but grrr it annoys me!

I hate it when people talk incessantly at concerts, or at movies

Stay home. I get so sick and tired of the mememe mentality of some people and the total lack of consideration for others.

I hate it when you are on the phone talking to someone and you have the person standing next to you telling you to give them messages

You're just like...."Omg, wait!"

that's really really fun to do though. especially if the person on the phone isn't really paying attention to you, and you tell them ridiculous things or just ramble on about something

1) Let’s suppose I’m driving my car and want to make a left turn into, say, a residential area and there are no stoplights or signs – though there is a left turn lane. Let’s further suppose that there are 2 lanes of traffic opposing me. I’m in the left turn lane waiting for opposing traffic to clear so that I can make my turn and you are in the opposing lane nearest to me (“lane 1”). You see me wanting to turn and since traffic in your lane is moving relatively slow, you decide that you’ll be “polite” and stop, yielding to me.

The other lane that opposes me and is to your right (“lane 2”) is not moving slow at all. In fact, cars are flying by in that lane. Please do not be perplexed or annoyed or insulted if I disregard your intended kindness and I don’t make a move. I’m not turning in front of you and the other opposing lane because – due to the fact that you have stopped your car and other cars are piling up behind you – you have created a blind spot and I cannot see around your auto; hence, I cannot tell whether or not I would be broad-sided if I ventured past you into lane 2.

It being the case that I do not want to see my car totaled and, surprisingly, I do not wish to end up in the hospital with, oh, let’s say a punctured lung and broken ribs and maybe worse, I am not moving my auto until you pass by me (or traffic in both lanes opposing me comes to a complete standstill). If you give me a dirty look, it will be clear to me that you were looking for a “thank you” from me so that you could feel validated. Dumbf**k.

2) Every once in a great while I might mis-dial a number on my phone or call a number and get a voicemail that makes it clear that the number is no longer owned by the person that I was trying to reach. A few times, minutes after I hang up, the unknown person who now owns the number calls me back and asks “Who are you?” Er, if I didn’t leave you a voicemail and you do not recognize my number in your system, feel free to assume that you do not need to call me back, dumbass.

When you do call me back and ask me who I am, I immediately assume that you are f**king weird, or that you are sitting around your shop and you haven’t had a customer in three months and you are desperate. I think it’s rather presumptuous of you to call back a complete stranger and, without introducing yourself, to ask them who they are (particularly when said stranger left you no message and you would not be able to call them back at all save for the fact that your system captured their bloody number). Hell, you’re probably spending .35 on the call, freak.

Then they can't say anything or be upset because I make it sound like I was just being polite....when really they just annoy the outta me! It's not just rude to me but it's rude to the line of people behind you that are ready to order!

mind if i pass that along to some friends.

i'm so glad i don't work with the public anymore.

I hate when you go to a concert and you queue up from stupid o'clock in the morning to get yourself a spot on the rail then when the stadium fills up you realise you need to pee. So you tell everyone around you you're gonna be back in a minute and even tell the security man the other side of the barrier so you know you can get back to your spot. On your way to the toilet you apologise to anyone you even go near and explain that you're gonna be coming back in a minute. Then on the way back you try and get past people and you apologise and ask really politely if you can just squeeze back through so you can get to your space you queued all day for and your friends. And they are SO RUDE !!! This has happened to me like 3 times over the summer. People either ignore me completely and turn their back even more or just tell me to get back and stop trying to push to a better position, and not in any nice words. I think maybe cos I'm young, people don't trust me and think I'm just pushing in. It makes me so angry. I know theres no way of proving I was there from so early but there is never any need to speak to people like that. I was in tears at Live 8 cos I'd been standing around in the heat and squashed between masses of people for the last 10 hours after having no sleep the night before, and had to get out to get some water and go to the toilet. And on the way back I've never experienced that kind of rudeness. I couldn't believe all those people had come out for a charity concert and then to abuse people like me. Grrr

I don't know if this fits into the topic! But its something that bugs me. Rudeness in general.

when your at a concert and you've waited for hours to get a great spot near the stage, finally you score this great spot near the front....then a couple of complete jerks who just arrived worm there way through the crowd and jam themselves in front of you and others who have been waiting

btw...they don't get to stand there too long
