    I hate flockers.

    You know, you're driving down a road with 2 lanes in each direction. Inevitably you come up on two cars pacing each other (flockers). To boot, they are going at or just below the speed limit. And as if to taunt you, every so often, one or the other speeds up just enough to make you think you can pass, but once you get behind them, they immediately slow down because you are tailgating!!! Does this drive anyone else nuts!? It's a good thing I don't own a gun....

    So what pisses you off?

    I've called them "wolf-packs" for years because of that tendency to travel in a pack. icon_confused.gif


    Seems some people cannot drive without a car bumper just in front of them!

    Peeve: Cars that wait 2 car lengths after a light turns green before moving....and then after you pass them and get on the open road they ride your back bumper @ 70 MPH! icon_rolleyes.gif

    yourname2000 saidPeople who slow walk in groups, side by side, so you can't get past them. Whether on the street or (worse) in a mall. Drives me effin' nuts. icon_twisted.gif I'll see whole families just meandering through the mall, all in a row, with crowds gathered front and behind, trying to get around them, and they're all just oblivious to the mayhem.


    Just rear-end them. icon_twisted.gif Well maybe just the men in the group, assuming they are of age and cute icon_biggrin.gif

    This happened ALL the time in my high school, with a graduating class of over 2,000 not surprising though haha


    My pet peeves are texting, I wish people would pick up a phone sometimes. I hate when I text someone, and they "didn't get it". I don't even get mad anymore, I let it go and stop "bothering" them.

    Funny how people thinking responding to a text a week later(when I've forgot what we were talking about) is acceptable

    Human beings are an interesting speciesicon_rolleyes.gif

    Oh, I'm not a fan of "lol" especially when I'm being serious. Again, there's no inflection of voice, body language...hard to get anything from texting.

    I will only do this to arrogant shits who I see flashing their high beams at me because they are extremely important and my being in their way is obviously impeding their right to use a secondary road as if it were an Autobahn.

    Case in point: when I am overtaking another car on my right, and we were both doing about 10mph+ over the speed limit, Jerkface McDouche comes up behind us at over 90mph blinking his high-beams.

    Well.... I just had to troll him at that point by stomping my brakes as he got up on my tail - and then I matched speed perfectly with the car on my right. Jerkface McDouche in his Lexus kept blinking the high beams and honking the horn, and the other car and I slowed to about 40 (in a 55 on curvy mountain road).

    Many LULZ were enjoyed, and once we got to the bottom of the mountain about 3mi. later I slowed down even more to get behind the car that ha been on my right. I waved and smiled while Jerkface predictably flipped me the bird, among some other mouthed obscenities, I'm certain. icon_smile.gif

    In some places you'd be risking him pulling out a 45. People have been shot for real trivial shit.

    #PullingOutDa45

    Perhaps, but from a middle-manager type mid-40s white guy in a Lexus ?

    Not too likely.

    As for running me off the road, I hope your car is a bigger POS than mine then. icon_twisted.gif

    My run-about car which I rack up ungodly mileage on for commuting is a shitbox of a '93 Subaru which is ugly as shit, has a quite a few knocks, and I have no qualms about using it as a shield against shitty drivers who think their pretty, shiney late model whatever gives them an asshole license. ;)

    That, a photographic memory for license plate numbers, and a very good standing relation with most of the local cops and quite a few of the local area state troopers has come in handy before.

    Another fun little trick. When someone is riding your ass on the freeway, hit your windshield cleaner a few times - the water flies up over your car and it's their window. They back off, it's a joy.

    Cavaet to the above:

    This happened on a very twisty mountain road, where most people would have trouble negotiating the curves at 70mph.

    We were on such a curve doing about 60-65mph, when the Lexus came screaming up behind us at about 90. I mean he literally was on my bumper within seconds of my seeing his first flashings about 600 feet behind me; other folks were scrambling to get out of his way.

    Had I been on a straight-away on the Thruway or some other interstate I would have grudgingly sped up a little to get out of the asshole's way, but I won't endanger myself to give some pompous ass in a hurry his power trip of the day.

    Socks and flip flops.

    Drivers who driver the under the speed limit especially on a one lane.

    Douchebag drivers who won't let you get in

    Doucehbag drivers who create safety hazards

    Arrogance/Cockiness

    When someone opens your door and leaves it open

    When you're about to do something and someone tells you to do it anyway



    There's plenty more, I think I am just an angry person icon_sad.gif

    The use of "irregardless". IT IS NOT A WORD!!!!

    In case someone is not sure, "irregardless" contradicts itself within its own etymology. Lets break it down. First we have the word "regard". This means to consider something. "In regard to your dumb ass" = I am about to say something that has something to do with how stupid you are. We can reverse this word by adding "less" to the end of it - "regardLESS". This word means that we should NOT consider something. "Regardless of your dumb ass" = I am about to say something and the subject of the statement should not take you into consideration. So what happens if we add "ir" to the front of "regardless"? We get a pointless double negative! Technically the definition of "irregardless" would be "You should not not consider the subject." - which means you should consider it completely. Make sense? The word you are looking for is either "regardless" or possibly "irrespective" but NEVER "irregardless". Thank you icon_smile.gif

    Caveat = I have not seen anyone use "irregardless" on RJ, good job boys icon_biggrin.gif
