    So what bugs you the most during a regular day?

    Getting up early?

    Traffic?

    Loud people?

    I think loud/rude people grate me the most.

    Freeway tailgaters, pickup trucks that have to do 100mph or will be late to work (hint: leave earlier *******), rude people who demand instead of ask. Loud people in public places.

    Other than that every day is a holiday!

    People that expect me to hurry because they or the job is behind due to no fault of mine. You want me to work twice as fast to help you out of a hole? Pay me twice as much!

    A-holes and their cell phones. Either the ones who have to talk and drive (badly) at the same time or the ones who leave work, get on the train, whip out the cell phone and proclaim to the person on the other end HEY I JUST GOT ON THE TRAIN!

    1: Drivers over 70 who cant see over their own steering wheel ... over 80 should be shot .
    2: Yoyo drivers on freeways who should pull over and let others past
    3: Drivers that take up 2 or more parking space's
    4: Drivers who dont know what the ? indicators are used for .
    5: Stupid drivers who fail to stay put till round about is clear on their exit .
    6: Over staying parking time restriction's
    7: Not slowing down in speed restricted work zone's ... I am sick of stone chips stuffing my vehicle up

    Basically the serious lack of thought for other road user's get's my goat up ... I know where I am going , so get out of the way ... go do that some other time will you's .

    It's half the reason I just bought an 80 series landcruiser ... get out of my way , I'm coming through , ready or not .

    The other is to go over round abouts ... why else buy a four wheel drive "all the time" unit .

    Soon to run on olive oil (svo)

    ----------------

    8: Finding out there is no sugar for my morning coffee makes me a grumpy bugger all day ... I need two cups minimum

    8a : No coffee at all , and offered tea ... if it aint bushels , its war .

    9: Being the only one on time when something important has to be done ... drive from act to melbourne to pickup a vehicle , complete kitchens , and more ... or from sydney ... weddings ...

    ----------------

    10: Being bugged to go out after midnight to a broken down vehicle ... I am not a 24 hour garage .

    ----------------

    11: Waiting for parts that should have only taken days to be delivered ... If I wait more than 2 months , I drive to canberra and get the things myself and blast the other fellow till their ears bleed .

    ---------------

    12: Being the number one trouble shooter in region ... you name it , if it's damaged , broken , not working ... they take it to "so called" repair's more than twice and get ripped off ... they then turn up here once and it's fixed for life of the component .

    Mechanic , Mouldings , Plumber , Carpenter , Engineer (buildings , heavy vehicles and machinery) ... you need a gear or sprocket cut from new ... , Builder , Farmer (fencing , sheds , pumps , tractor's , ect)

    Nope , have not built a bridge yet , a boat yes ... might do that next year on my new farm .

    I have learnt all this from a variety of work over 20 years ... only 1 tafe certificate .

    I am putting it down to something in the water making people stupid ... I personally wouldnt drink the stuff unless it was filtered and had the crap boiled out of it .

    13: Next doors guitar twanging ... after 24 months it now resembles something I can atleast live with

    14: People who use power tools , lawnmowers before 8.00am on any given day ... they cop it from me full blast ... no language hold back ... it's full on ... inconsiderate people will not be tolerated at all .

    And this is every day ... watching the simpsons and futurama at the end of day helps to remove the stress of all the bs I have too deal with each day .

    -----------------

    15: Showing people more than 8 time's how to do something , step by step , and they still dont get it , and ask me if I can do it for them , when they need it done , even though I have written a guide on their pc that clearly explains the process's involved with many clear picture's , and I have installed the tool's for them .

    Now that take's the gold medal ...

    16: Tailgaters ... I now have a light fitted to rear of vehicle for those idiots who dont know how to turn off high beam at night when they are behind you .

    I also had a camera system installed in the rear of my land cruiser which is activated when I think a vehicle breach's this dangerous practice ... the video footage is taken to local police station and I press charges .

    Why some poeple need to be that close at 110km for more than 3 minutes , on sub standard roads ... They must be late for there own funerals .... nope , just plain stupid and dangerous .

    My new vehicle is what I call a boulder chucker ... it dosent throw stones up ... so back right off .

    17: Idiots that use mobile phones while driving .

    18: The above , and fiddling with their cd players whilst talking to others in the car .

    Do us a favour , get up to 110km , and throw them out the window ... your supposed to pay attention to the road and others around you ... and your vehicle guages ... like temp guage / fuel / oil ... and brake fail lamp .

    Many of those broken down on the side of the road obviously were not paying attention to their vehicles needs ...

    -----------------

    Time for more coffee ...

  8. The only thing that ticks me off on an average day is my own incompetence, stupidity or clumsiness. I generally don't get ticked at other people unless they attack me in some way. (Of course there are exceptions, but not usually on an "average" day.)

    Ignorant people who think they have been educated but haven't. Many are credentialed but a diploma or license no longer certifies the ability to think, or any body of common knowledge.

  11. What bothers me is Sales calls on the phone, especially the recorded calls.

    I now wait til the end of the rcording to tie up their calling equipment. If I hang up it go right to the next number. Then I press whatever it wants to talk to a real person....

    Then when they come on a Ask them do they want to buy a computer or just have one repaired. If they ask what? I say, Hey you called a computer store, we sell, we don't buy.

    Some just chuckle and say I'll remove your number, others rwally hate wasting their time and hang up.... Hmmm.. The first ones that chuckle got it. the others didn't get it. They wasted my time so I returned the favor.

    And sometimes if I'm feeling grumpy when they come on the line I just ask them do you know why I'm talking to you? You wasted my time so I'm tieing up your phone equipment and returning the favor.

    And if I'm home and see from the Caller ID it's a sales call. I answer in bright voice, Hello, You have reached a Non buying from phone calls home.

    If they still feel like talking, I tell them further we have a policy to never buy based on phone calls. One bright fellow said how about if I come buy to talk about our Home Improvement service? To which I replied but you already knocked yourself out of the running by cold calling.

    Or the Lawn service that wanted to improve my homes value by working on the lawn. To which I replied, Are you crazy! Increase the value so they can raise the taxes. I want to lower the value and taxes.... He finally got the hint. Like I want the grass to grow so I have to mow it oftener.

    Hanging up on sales calls automated or live just lets them move on. Do a public service for other, tie them up as long as you can.

    I'm usually in a good mood, but I HATE narcissistic jerks. You know the ones: Control freaks. Narcissists have extremely high opinions of themselves, and think people should worship them for their "specialness." They're immature, constantly nagging and complaining, finding fault with everyone and everything. They feel entitled to special treatment and are convinced they're above the law, including the rules in their place of employment. They're disruptive, poor team members, and rarely collaborate with others without being cantankerous. In truth they're delusional morons who should move to another planet (like the Sun).

    To be precise: people who are addicted to their cell phones. I refer to the cell phone as the Californian cigarette. Here in CA, where smoking is highly prohibited, it seems people make calls on their cell phones at the same instances where most smokers are compelled to have a cigarette.

    Rude people without a doubt.

    Fixing peoples computers is quite the chore these days, complaining how much you charge, then expecting something for nothing and making out they are doing you the favour. The worse one i have had is, some ****stomer actually moaned that i was going to be at their own house for a couple of hours.

    "We've already bred a generation of drivers who can't stop short without ABS, can't stay on the road without a stability system and can't drive at all without an automatic transmission."

    Note : Hmm, that's actual means me !

    I hate people who insist to drive a stick shift because they somehow think it is a more "pure" driving experience.

    I once had a family member (with more money than I'll ever see) who had to argue with a car dealership to special order an automatic chevy corvette.

    If I ever buy a high performance sports car I'll be doing the same LOL :P

    I selected the write-in option and I choose negative self-pitying people.

    You know the type... nothing ever goes their way, they can't get a break... blah,blah,blah

    I hate that. No one ever gave me anything either, you know? I had to earn everything I ever got and I worked hard for it. Don't treat me like I lead a "charmed" life because I spent my time DOING instead of COMPLAINING!
