I am talking about those things that really don’t matter and even if they did you can’t change them anyway. They are the little things that drive you up the wall when really, they shouldn’t.
Lately for me (and the wedding world I am absorbed in) It is the Mr & Mrs. His First His Last. Okay, I get it. It is traditional and certainly easier to write and remember. And really, it shouldn’t bug me. But I am NOT changing my first name! I am still Kristen! I must have missed the day I became Brian… I mean, I checked and I have no extra stuff down there. Still, the same annoying parts. At our wedding I have made darn sure that we are announced as “Mr. & Mrs. Brian and Kristen Hedgie.
What is you stupid little thing?

Flakey people annoy the hell out of me.
I always communicate when I will be arriving and should something come up you will know it. People that just don’t show up or don’t follow through drive me bonkers. I have enough on my plate and shouldn’t have to track you down.

People grumbling and complaining about every little thing.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I kind of have to comment on your annoying thing. I made sure we were announced “Mr. His First Name and Mrs. My First Name Our Last Name”.

When people are in the right lane at a stop light and they aren’t turning right. It annoys me sooooo much, but it happens all the time. Its like people dont have common courtesy. Ugh

@HoneyBear: OMG! No kidding! I look forward to the ability to skip a red light! It’s like people weren’t listening when they discussed that exception to teh whole red light thing in drivers ed.

I honestly hate it when people chew ice. It drives me bonkers.
I also hate it when people are slow to get out the door. The people who literally take 2 hours to get somewhere, and are always at least an hour behind schedule. I hate it when I set a time with someone to do something and they’re always late!
I work at a coffee shop/wine bar, and I hate it when people come in and just stare at the menu for like five minutes. I know that they’re not doing anything wrong, but for someone reason it annoys the crap out of me.
We also have this drink at work that has 1200 calories in a 24 oz, and I hate it when really big people come in and get it WITH something else (like a sandwich) and are consuming over 2200 calories right there, as a snack. I want to be like “uhhh… helllo!!! this is SOOOO bad for you!”

Speaking of driving. Bicyclists. Its rush hour and all I want to do it get home and in front of me is this guy peddling his ass of going 5km. Traffic is backed up because this guy refuses to get close to the curb. He must drive in the middle lane and pretend he is a car. But he completely disobeys traffic lights and signs. And then, when traffic is too slow for him he jumps on the sidewalk and continues on. Drives me up the bloody wall.
Ok, Im done. Thanks for asking. I feel a little better.

– Slow walkers. And people who take up almost all of the sidewalk, making it difficult to pass them when they’re walking slowly.
– People who randomly stop midtrack in the middle of the street/subway platform, making it difficult to maneuver around them (or, sometimes, I just walk right in to them).
– People who sit next to me on the subway even though there are plenty of empty seats.
Apparently I have city rage.

@reginaphalange: YES. I was actually going to post about slow walkers even before I saw this. Even more so when it’s a group of them, spread out across the sidewalk, so you can’t move around them. Drives. Me. CRAZY. I’ve concluded that there is a fundamental difference between people who walk as part of a leisure activity (e.g. tourists) and people who walk as transportation. I’m not walking for my health, people, I have someplace I have to be!!
@The Average Bride:
Ha. You might not want to check this post’s comments, then.

I hate people who go like 50 mph to pull out in front of you when you are coming up on them in traffic, but then slow down to 20 mph. It’s like, really? It was that important for you to speed out recklessly to get in front of me, only to slow down instead of waiting the 10 seconds for me to pass? Grrrr. Really stupid drivers in general irk me.

BMW drivers. I swear on all that is unholy that every beemer in my city is driven by someone who a) is an asshole, or b) has no clue how to drive and only got their driver’s license because of *ahem* something they did with the examiner in the back seat of the car, not what they did in the driver’s seat.
And I’m not stereotyping or imagining things. Darling Husband keeps trying to prove me wrong and point out at least one beemer whose driver who knows what they’re doing/isn’t a douchecanoe, but to this day he still hasn’t managed to find one.
*apologies to any BMW owners in the Hive; I’m sure you’re the exceptions that we haven’t seen yet*

When people tell me to eat something. I get it you think I’m skinny but I am 26 years old, I know how to consume food. I do not have an eating disorder and all your comment does is make me want to turn mean and call you fat. I don’t tell you to put down the ice cream bar so don’t tell me to eat a hamburger….same goes when you see me eat an entire pizza. No I am not going to go throw it up in the bathroom, maybe I had a bad day and really enjoy pizza!!
