That drives me mad too. One woman even had the gall to complain about being told to stop parking there because she was parked right on the corner in a fire lane. Even in nice weather they do it. Seriously, can't you walk 100 yards on flat ground in 70F weather? It sounds like the HOA is getting involved because it's pretty dangerous for the kids when there are so many cars driving around or blocking views while the kids get off the bus.

Banks that constantly ask me to reset my security questions, and then offer choices that are appropriate to people who are from the US and are 20 or 30 years younger than me. For instance..
What is the first name of the person you attended the high school prom with?
What is your favorite song?
What was your major in college?
What was the name of your school bus driver in fourth grade?
(etc.)

It's pretty easy, you just give them the same answer to each question.

Seeing people fighting over parking spaces that are closest to the gym entrance. Somehow the whole point of going to gym seems moot.

People taking up the entire pavement space so you can't get by.

Slow walking people.

The two combined and I almost popped a nut this afternoon.

Not a peeve but I always wondered WTF people are doing walking on treadmills in the gym when it's 70 something degrees and lovely and sunny out ??

"Outside" is too scary for most So Cal inhabitants I think.

People who get their knickers in a knot about the most ridiculously unimportant stuff. Has anyone died? No? Then seriously, does it fricking matter?

Being in a really shitty mood over something I can't control. It's pissing me off hugely.

Nothing like that would have ever happened with a front loader.

That's right
When we had our front loader a bloody Possum got in it, and we all know how totally EVIL and GROSS possums are.

Top loaders are safe from evil possums even if they do mutilate Geckos

Well unless we are riding with another biker I really wouldn't want some one else sharing a parking space with our bike. There are plenty of numpty bike riders out there that when parking would knock the bike over...


Hey...thinking about it though why should we share?

Don't piss me off Bob

Well if you're on your own, that's fine...but it's when there are groups of bikers, on a group ride and the all take one spot each....

Fine if the place isn't busy, but it's well annoying when it's some holiday weekend at some sight and the place is busy....

So tempting to just go push them bikes over.

Finding white clothes in the colour laundry bin and vice-versa.

Dirty clothes not in the laundry bin.

Finding a plate or glass, just after starting the dish washer.

Going around and sliding up the screens and pulling down the storm windows at the end of summer....they just get so minging...and it's as bad switching them back for summer...they never just slide down the rails without a major battle.
