Sorry, just needed a little rant/vent sesh because either I’m PMSing and I am hyper-sensitive to certain things or people are just that obnoxious…
I absolutely hate when I am making my way through the grocery store, with a clear path of travel with my cart, and someone looking on the shelves steps back in the middle of the aisle to look at the items on the shelf. Like, do you not see me pile driving through this place? Why would you stop directly in my path? And when I say, “excuse me…” to politely insinuate that I want you to move, you take a 3 inch step forward. Thanks, now I have to turn around, make a U-turn at the end of the aisle, and walk alllll the way down another one, and make another U-turn. You’re rude. Step aside.
When I’m driving in the “fast” lane on the highway, why must the slowest car cut me off in order to maintain a speed 5 mph below what the signs say you should be going? Why did you need to get in the lane I’m in? There was no one ahead of you.
I went to check-out at a 7-11 with my morning coffee and a man quickly rushed ahead of me to pay for his items. Ok..better be quick if you’re in that much of a rush. Nope, paid with pennies and dimes for a 4 dollar total.
At work, I work directly with the Vice President of our firm. He needs to sign dozens of papers per day. I have a folder that clearly is labeled, “For VP to Sign”. Why does everyone in my office have to hand me the papers that need to be signed when I am less than 6 inches from the folder? Can you not just place the papers in there yourself? And why do I have to return them to you? Can you not walk back here and get them yourself? Do I work for you? NO.
Lastly, worker at the bagel cafe; stop acting like you don’t see me waiting here to place my order. You’ve been on your phone for 3 minutes now and ignoring incoming business. Look up and take the 20 seconds to put in my order and accept my payment! Please!
Sorry, I am just over it today and normally I would have the patience for this bull shit, but I can’t take it today!!!!!! Feel free to vent/share what other people do that just chaps your ass.

Woah! Sounds like a bad day. lol. Been there.
What really pisses me off are people or more annoying groups of people that dawdle, like walk really slowly in front of you (which in itself isn’t an issue) and some how manage to zig-zag the fuck all over the place, making it almost impossibe for you to over take them. Like seriously, move at a snails pace, that’s fine but could you make it in a straight line?!!??!

When it rains it pours. Those would get under my skin too.
For me I can’t stand laziness, drives me nuts and yesterday DH was doing everything to annoy me with his laziness. Asked him to wash the dishes, he walks away to do something else and said he will after. Urgh no, why not now? Asked him to make his lunch (since I made dinner and washed up), he said later. Again why not now? After hours of waiting I just did it myself since I know he would forget and I would have to rush to do it. Asked him to bring something to the laundry room, he just threw it down the stairs. Ugh thanks I could have done that too. Asked him to record something, well because his iPad wouldn’t let him do it wirelessly he didn’t do it at all. Our house isn’t huge, but he couldn’t walk the 30 steps to do it on the T.V. Give me a break! All in one day. Why do I even bother asking, I should just do it myself and save my breath.

Ugh, I am with you on the people blocking the aisle in supermarkets! It bugs me even though I am usually just carrying my bags (handbag & tote) and a basket! There are people who stand in the middle of the aisle, not leaving enough space on either side to get around. Then there are groups of people shopping together (roommates I presume) who block off the whole aisle, or are staggered along the aisle so I can’t get round any of them. Then there are those shoppers who are shopping alone but stand right next to, but on the opposite side of the aisle from, another shopper so again I can’t get round!
Then there are groups of people who spread themselves across the pathway so you can’t get past. Even when you try they stay spread out. There are also those who move across just as you are trying to go past. Or those that stop all of a sudden in front of you when you are walking, they don’t even move to the side out of the way and stop!
I agree with MsBeer:
about zigzagging snails!

I am 100% with you.

Completely with you on this too. DH does the same damn thing! Always puts chores off till later!

Ohhh no! I usually move around them in the aisle if they don’t give me enough space. Heck no am I turning all the way around. I’ll tell them I need more space if I don’t have enough.
The slow cars in the left lane drives me mad!!!! AHHHH! That and cars pacing each other so I can’t even go around them.

Omg, I was thinking of starting a pet peeve thread this morning! I haaaaaaaaate the grocery store people!!!! MOVE!
This a.m. I was in line at the gas station with my soda and another clerk opened up. So the guy behind me goes to her. Yo, dude, I’m next! Same thing happened in Walgreens a couple weeks ago, I was waiting forever for the clerk (she was having major probs with a customer), another clerk opens up and the guy behind me goes to her. Like, hello! Been standing here quite ahile longer then you and I’m NEXT, bozo. I was kind of um, a brat, and stood right next to him, with my hand on my hip, staring him down.

goodriddance88: ha! my boss will email me an attached document and copy the section supervisors and say “please forward this to the supervisors”….. ummmm you just did. :\
or she will email me a document that says “please print”…. ummm do you not have a working printer. You do. and it’s literally right next to you so why can’t you print this? instead she asks me to print it and wants me to bring it to her office.
I wouldn’t complain so much if I was her assistant but i’m not. I serve two sections of people. that’s a total of 36 people that I edit for, among other things. So I don’t really have the time to act as her personal assistant. She just happens to be the one my position is directly under because she’s the section leader. But she swears I’m her personal assistant.

Haha this thread is fun. What really gets on my nerves are people that walk slow at the university. Like hellooo im 5 minutes late to class move move move! This aint a mall! And whats more annoying is when you somehow cannot pass them!
That and tailgaters…eek! Hate when someone tailgates me! Like get out of my face. Its scary.
totally with you on this one.

Oh everyone in my office is like that! The director’s secretary is apparently the only one who can send out an email to the entire office (about 150 people). So when any of the managers have a mass email to send they send it to her and say please send to all and all she does is hit forward and sends it to everyone. WTF is the point of that?! Just send to all!!!
Not to mention she lists EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE individually on the email (again 150+ people). OMFG create a group in outlook!!! And then when one new person shows up she adds them to her list and sends out an email saying “test” so she can have that new person in the list when she pops it up. Then 99% of the office responds and says test and I’m pretty sure none of them know why they are doing it. We live in the year 2015, there is a better way to do it and it isn’t hard to figure out people!

Ugh that sounds like a couple people I’ve worked for. I was once a research assistant in a lab and the professor seemed to think that I was her personal assistant. I was there to do research, not do coffee runs (I don’t even drink coffee, so it’s not like I would go on my own anyway), book her plane tickets and keep checking them everyday to see if the price went down, or go to her classroom before she taught to check to see if the temperature was ok. Drove me nuts. I had another one who wasn’t even my boss, just one of the secretaries in the office (I was a work study doing filing and such). She would make me wash out her nasty tupper wear from her lunch in the bathroom sink (there was no kitchen) and walk out to her car in the snow to move it closer so she didn’t have to walk as far when she left in the afternoon. I get that I was the office bitch, and I didn’t mind washing the community coffee mugs or the coffee maker, but I wasn’t there to be someone’s personal servant. Some people.

I agree with you completely! Also, I can’t stand people who sit in the middle lane on the highway going just under the speed limit. I don’t want to go 80 like the people in the fast lane so I have to pass them on the right in the slow lane.
In the grocery store, aside from the people who block the whole aisle, I can’t stand people who get in my personal space at the checkout. Seriously BACK UP!!! They won’t get out of the store any faster and I wonder if I need to be watching my wallet. I once had a guy about my age that was so close to me it looked like we were a couple. It was creepy.
On the flip side I was shopping on the day after Christmas. The aisle was packed and my toes were pretty close to the display I was looking at (I was on the same side of the aisle). This woman with a cart says “I want to be where you are.” (No “excuse me.”) Ummm, so do I. I ignored her.

ugh all these things are the worst.
My favourite, when people walk through doors or subway turnstiles and then just STOP on the other side to figure their shit out. I AM RIGHT BEHIND YOU! THE DOORWAY IS NOT AN APPROPRIATE PLACE TO STOP! move forward and out of the way of people who know where they are going to figure out your shit…

acsweetpea: well what’s messed up is, I created a nice neat outlook contact group and sent it to her to save as a contact. I made one for supervisors (there’s only 3!!!!!!) and one for our whole section (15 people) and I update it regularly with new employees and such. I handle most personnel related things in our section since I work with scientists and it just makes sense. So I keep track of those things. Either way, I made it easy for her and still she insists on sending it to me to send. I don’t get it.
She’s the worst though. I edit all of our documents. reports, data reports, research reports, memos, letters, you name it, if it comes out of our section it goes across my desk for review before it’s submitted or sent out. I created nice neat templates for documents we do often like memos, report title pages, table of contents pages, etc. They are basically pull and plug documents. So for example, when she goes to do a memo (which I end up rewriting anyway) she can just pull the standard memo template and write the body, insert the date, to, from, and subject. But the format is all already done. So it really is just filling in fields. Nope. It can’t be that easy right? She will go into old files and pull old memo’s she’s looking to repeat and use those instead. So when I get it it’s in some weird format that is totally outdated. I have actually taken to sending it back to her and saying “please use the correct document template for this. this is an old document. You can find the new document templates here *list file location*. Please let me know if you have any questions.” At that point she will just email me and say “can you copy and paste for me? thanks!” really….. Like why can’t you just use the damn forms I made for you!!!!! then everything would already be correct!
Or her reports. She will literally pull and grab parts from 8 different previous reports, update the data and send it to me bare bones like that. I then have to go through and change even basic things like the font being all the same or the endings and beginnings of paragraphs. I may as well have written the report myself. Instead her name goes on it and I get a “mention” for editing the report. She’s theo nly one here who does that. Authors are told to hand reports over to admins like myself in “almost perfect form” and we are only to proof their work. I don’t proof her work. I do her work. But I can’t stand to let something leave my desk in less than perfect shape and she knows this so she knows she can just toss it at me and i’ll make it what it should have been to begin with.
I could go on for days about this.

People who are cluelessly in other people’s way drive me CRAZY!!!!!!
People who park at the curb in front of the grocery store, blocking the road the rest of us use to get to the parking lot, you know that place you’re supposed to PARK because you’re not a special snowflake who gets to park on the damn curb!
People who gas up their car and then leave it at the pump while they go into the convenience store, especially when there are other cars clearly waiting to hit the pump. HELLO do you think people just idle at the gas station for the fun of it?!
People (snowboarders about 99% of the time) who stop right at the bottom of the ski run where you load up into the lift life. Get the hell out of the way or I will run you over, you moron teenager!
People who slowly walk on the “run” lane on indoor tracks….. I will run you over, you slow motherf*cker!
Haha I have a lot of repressed rage about this. I’m a really laid back person but for some reason this kind of clueless inconsideration just drives me insane.
