    1) Those horrible Carl's Jr commercials

    2) People with umbrellas who hog the space under eaves when its raining.

    3) Group projects -- can I just do my work without involving two stoned 19-year-olds.

    4) Peyton Manning -- not your fault Peyton, but go away all ready.

    5) Speaking of the NFL: Why do color commentators feel the need mythologize the team that's up in the second half during the playoffs.? "When you think about where this Bucanneer team has been, blah, blah, blah." I've seen this happen only to have the other team take the lead. Then we get "dramatic struggle 2.0".

    6) TV promos. I understand commercials that pay the bills for what I'm watching but why do I have to watch endless promos for "The Sarah Conner Chronicles" or "One Tree Hill"?

    7) Chow Fun: Stop making me order you. I love you to death and then you make me sick. Why can't I quit you, chow fun?

    8) The N-freakin-Judah, my daily train that never runs on time, smells bad and breaks down nearly every day.

    Drivers who use the passing lane of an interstate as their own personal 65 mph cruising lane.

    Truck drivers who move into the passing lane to pass the truck in front of them, but then proceed to only go .5 mph faster than the truck they are passing and ultimately take 5-10 miles to pass the truck. (Sorry if I have offended any truck drivers on RedsZone as I do respect what you do.)

    Watching a movie or TV show that someone else has already seen and they say "watch this."

    Showing coach's and fans expressions after a key play right after the play happens.

    NFL games go to commercial after a score and after the kickoff.

    Fans that really do hate other teams' fans and hate players because they play for a rival (I've been guilty and hopefully have repented of such nonsense)

    Parents who put their kids in two or more team sports at the same time that cause both teams to be short players at times (basketball and hockey, baseball and soccer)

    Mondays

    Presidential elections

    Stereotyping

    Racism

    When the waiter at a resturant walks up, exchanges plesantries and asks if you'd like a "insert goofy named drink special of the night here". You respond with "I'd like a diet pepsi" and your wife responds with "water with lime please".

    The server then proceeds to be crestfallen, give you a facial expression that says "oh crap" and then slinks away.

    Often times we get desert, and occasionally an appatizer which more than makes up for the lack of booze drinks and bumps up the ticket total. If he/she had only stuck in there they might have found that out. Sorry that you think your tip will suck due to a low ticket there Skippy, but when you are visably irritated by the lack of alchohol drinks I decide to skip desert and appatizer and you aren't going to get more than 10% unless you really knock my socks off. Sortof a self-fullfilling prophacy aint it?

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    1) Poorly-timed traffic lights drives me nuts.
    2) Not being able to turn left when the through traffic light is green (it should be flashing red sometimes).
    3) Not being able to turn on red sometimes.

    I hate traffic lights.

    Needless 4 way stops. They just added one to my neighborhood and it drives me bonkers. The neighborhood somehow survived without this four way stop for 60 some years but now all of a sudden it is needed.
