    I have one that I came across yesterday. People that shift down to stop, instead of using their brakes. I almost hit a guy yesterday because he was stopping and had no brake lights.

    I missed him, but I did note the bumper damage on his car where he's been hit by someone else.

    Who does that and why? To me, it seems a whole lot easier just to step on the brakes.

    No kidding. How hard is it to return the cart? The world is awash in selfish, ignorant jerks.

    If I weren't currently so devoted to Scott Hatteberg, this would be my new sig line. Maybe during the offseason.

    Can't stand getting behind the car with the driver who has his arm around an empty passenger side seat.

    Nothing screams, "I have nowhere to go so I'm gonna take my time" more than that...

    A note on the hand blowers in public restrooms. They may be easier on trees, but they can be very unsanitary. Everyone touches them, but not everyone washes their hands very well, so they can get covered in bacteria and other microbes. Then, when you turn them on, the stuff gets blown all over your freshly washed hands. I avoid them at all costs. If it's the only choice I have, I will sometime wipe my hands on my clothes to avoid those things.

    Vaticanplum, I can sympathize with you on the Chicago public transit system. I rode the Red Line to work and back for over two years. The space thing got to me too. I would always try to "think small" when I was on the El. Some people have no concept of space. I always hated it when people refused to fold over the "Sun Times" while they were reading it on the El. The paper was designed to be folded over while reading, yet you always end up with some bozo's paper in your face because he doesn't understand that concept.

    The one of other issues I had on the El were the transients who thought a rush hour El train would be a great place to catch a few Zs. I realize these people have problems, but it's pretty bad when you have someone who smells so bad taking up half a car because no one can stand to be within 10 feet of the guy.

    Another issue on the El...street preachers. We used to get some pretty crazy ones in the morning on the Red Line. I used that time to read for work or rest my eyes a little before work. The last thing I wanted was some crazy lady calling me "Satan" and saying she was going to cast me out of "God's temple" because I yawned while she was preaching.

    For the record, I sometimes do this. After tearing my rotator cuff years ago, my shoulder gets sore after long periods of stressful driving. Stretching it out for a little while on the empty passenger seat helps a lot.

    sava, don't try and make me feel bad about this.

    I'd rather be paranoid and think that everone does things to be devious...

    How about the people who wait til they get to the counter before thinking about what they want to order. This is especially aggravating when they had ten minutes in line to decide.

    How bout the clerks or cashiers who stuff the bills and the coins into your hand at the same time. Today for example I held my wallet open after I paid with a 5 for a 2.14 send item (porn) and the clerk gives me the 3 dollar bills back and then quickly stuffs the change into my hand as i clearly started backwards to put the 3 dollars into my wallet. Its like they can't fathom holding onto the loose change for another 3 seconds to give me time to place the bills in the wallet. Then you have to fumble around to separate the change from the bills and hold up the line while you adjust all your crap just because of the schmuck behind the counter.
