I'm thinking directly of the people on here to whom those apply, and I'm wondering if they'll even get it.

I never punctuate after a smiley, it always looks kind of silly. Though, that is a self-applied rule of aesthetics, and not really correct English.

  • Hypochondriacs. Seriously, I hope you catch something really horrible, maybe then you'll finally be happy.
  • People that won't shut up about how busy they are while they do nothing all day and leave their work mess for others to clean up. There is a special place in hell for you.

This is a good one.

You are at least spared the classic "I'm so busy and I don't know how I will get it done today" style facebook posts. If someone is that busy, why spend half the morning telling us about it

Yeah, but I have one who bitches and tattles because other people are on Facebook ... yet somehow their work gets done and hers doesn't.

I'd like to respond to all this, because you know that really need my input, (I know you'll make an exception for me) but to be honest.... I'm just far too busy today. I think I have some kind of tropical virus that I got in the rice fields too, from when I was spying on the Chinese earlier in the month.
BTW, Don't bother trying to stab me, I have a 24 hour personal FBI bodyguard.
Have a nice day, and draw your blind, there's a 48" infrared scope that's looking in your window.

People who don't use turn signals. I live in GA, 'nuff said!

Ignorance

Spiders

Patronizing people

The misuse of indicators is a big one though, not just those who don't use them, but the ones who leave them on on a road with a series of off-streets, and you don't know which bloody one (if any) they are going to turn down!

Gahhh! I look at these people and wonder - out of 1,000,000 sperm they were the fastest
