You got to live on a corner for this one to annoy.

People who put up poster, placards whatever for lost cats and yard sales on lamp posts and don't take them down leaving them to slowly rot away.

Arseholes...and it seems to be all over the place here in the neighbouring town and coming into it from the other side now, I don't know those roads so don't realise till it's to late.

Whilst talking turns, when you're waiting to turn left on the road, folks getting all arsey having to wait behind you....bugger off.

As bad, those folks who go around you, running the pavement, because the two seconds wait would have killed them.

Motorbikers who avoid those cars by going around you on the left side, getting arsey with you when you're about to turn...this has happened twice this week...knobends.

The police not bothering to enforce the no texting law, because they can't be arsed, mainly because people can still dial a phone, so that's the excuse...so no one gets done for texting and driving in this state and it's a major problem. Knobcheeses, the cops and the texters.

I thought they had to be taken away within 24 hours after voting day or face a fine?

They do up in Maine and pretty sure in Mass too at least.

I think they get 7 days around here, but think it varies between townships.

In Mass. they definitely do. I remember though, I was in a good part of Nashua and they still hadn't removed some signs 2 months on. I think it 'becomes' the house owner's responsibility.

Depends on whether or not you have sloppy enforcement of the rules. There are laws about the signs, but nobody does anything about it - in spite of the letters to the editor in the newspaper and the callers-in to the radio talk shows. The place is loaded with jobsworths!

Haven't ploughed through all 14 pages to see if this has been mentioned, but . . . I'm driven mad by TV commercials that say "Fred and Mary owed an extremely large amount of taxes, but we were able to whittle it down to almost nothing and enable them to continue to live their extravagant lifestyle" (picture of smiling yuppies entering oversized SUV). Grrrr!

Garbage Trucks.

I get that you have a hard thankless job to do, and I can wait for a few seconds while you deal with someones bins; but when for the sake of a foot either way, you can keep all the traffic moving, park that truck the extra foot along.

Oh and thanks for taking those manky looking plastic drinks bottles that some meth-head chucked in our garden and I put in the garbage, thanks for taking it out of the garbage and implying that I should take it in my house, wash it and put it in the recycling.

We get the same; beer bottles and plastic drink bottles chucked out of the car as they drive by. Strange to say, also chucked out of the buggy.. Amish people litter too, and I have a feeling some of the young lads jettison the containers before they get home so their parents don't see what they've been wasting their wages on.

I'm lucky, I have a stream bisecting my yard. I immerse recyclables in there, retrieve them later and chuck them in recycling.

You might need to bury the drinks bottles further down the bin. On the same note, bl**dy neighbours across the street. Their newspapers/flyers for recycling often land in our garden on even a slightly breezy day. Why the fluck can't they put something heavy on top of the papers to stop that happening.
