One that seems to be more common lately is walking or driving directly behind a car that is reversing in a shopping centre car park. More than a ton of metal has its engine running, its reversing lights on and is moving slowly backwards, and you walk directly behind it? If it wasn't for the paper work I'd oblige the Darwin Awards.

Especially when schit like this happens, talk about hitching a ride!...

What a great idea. If there ain't a drive thru, make one.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

My greatest irritation is being stuck in the queue behind some idiot who thinks that buying lottery tickets by the dozen will guarantee a win - and then has to check every single one of them before moving away.

Cheers, John

Why do they use glue to hold the little cardboard disk in the cap of a Goo-Gone bottle?

I have a new one: Camouflage clothing as a fashion statement. If you are not hunting, or in the field on active military duty, it just looks silly.

It's also appropriate for paintball.

Liquid wrench! Try opening the can without a pair of pliers.

Perhaps the worst thing I ever saw a driver doing was a woman who was apparently coming home from the laundromat. She was steering with one elbow while pulling clothes from a basket on the passenger side floor, folding them and stacking them on the passenger seat. This was in city traffic, and she was constantly creeping over the lane lines and swerving back.

Another of my minor irritations is the way the media keep interviewing 'celebrities' about events that need a true expert's opinion, not that of a know-nothing nonentity who happens to be famous for singing, playing 'music', or getting drunk.
