I keep promising myself I'm going to try that - if for no other reason than to put all our newspaper waste to good use. Now is the time to start it, too! Maybe I'll actually do it this year.

On the motorway, pulling over to let someone on....instead of them either speeding up or slowing down so you can pull back in, drive exactly your speed so you can't....so you miss your exit.

Knobcheese...so that was a bit of a pain in the arse detour to get home as the next exit was closed for drainage work.

Happened to me once.

Pulled out politely and expected to overtake the car coming on as they picked up speed. Instead they gunned it and matched me, so I speeded up more to still pull in front, and he speeds up more, then I speed up more, and he speeds up more, etc, etc.

I (for once) decide this is getting juvenile, back off and reluctantly pull in behind.

Next corner... cop car

He gets pulled over immediately since we were probably going quite comfortably over the limit by then.

Gotta love karma

Mean people.

Co-workers with attitude. (I shouldn't have to bake you cookies to get you to do your job - that's why you're being paid.) We had a doosy this week.

Hypocrites.

Incorrect words or expressions: i.e. "irregardless", "that jives".

Sheeple.

Those who think they know everything about everything.

Passive-aggressive types.

Bad driving, but even worse - road rage. I swear my husband is going to get us killed one of these days.

People who never close the drawers after opening them, or close cupboard doors (namely my husband), what is up with that!!! He seems to think there's some drawer/cupboard closing fairy going around after him, shutting all the things he's opened arrggggg

There is My two girls are the queens of not closing cupboard doors. Funny how they don't like their bedroom doors being left open.....

You mean you're not the drawer and cupboard door closing fairy? You probably have your husband fooled on that one.

So, tuck your wings away and stop proving to him the fairy still lives. If you can stand the open drawers/doors for a while, maybe he'll get the hint?

If I did that then the house would look like it had been burgled, with every drawer and cupboard open. He doesn't even notice I'm sure, I blame his mother...

That absolutely does my nut too. Lucily for me, my daughter has inherited my OCD and will go around closing all drawers and open cubpoard/room/fridge doors, even if you have your hand or head stuck in them at the time

Don't get me started about people leaving lights on, either.
