    Stopping In Traffic

    Why do people when stopping in traffic do not pull up behind the car in front of them? They leave anywhere from 1 car length to 3 or 4 car lengths distance between them. Less cars get through the light, less cars get to the turn lane and makes for bigger backups.

    Just A Few

    I hate having to repeat myself. This is why I can't be a high school teacher. When someone tells you how you should do something, when they don't actually have a clue how to do it, and you did it right in the first place. People who try to trick you into saying something...

    Finger Food

    Yawning.

    I hate when people just open up their mouths, as wide as humanly possibly, in public, just so they can inhale deeply. It's fine to yawn. Just don't open your mouth wide enough so it becomes the majority of your face. It's unattractive and unnecessary. It's a really weird...

    or if you agree or disagree with any of these! 1. That loud ticking sort of sound when the stovetop is turned on the absolute highest. 2. When someone keeps saying um. 3. People who ALWAYS type with improper grammar and punctuation. To do that once in a while is okay, but I can...

    I Guess I Tend To Be A Little Irritated Easily, But:

    When I'm speaking to someone, she constantly clicks her nails on the table to add to her story, and more then half the time, I stop listening, because she is driving me crazy.
