How about people trying to be subtle, but really are over the top aggressive about what they're trying to say. can't stand those people.

people who ask for phone numbers but aren't ready to write it down.

"Whats the number to the Pens ticket office?"

It's 642-1842

"HOLD ON, HOLD ON let me get a pen"

"What is it"

Its 642-1842

"6...4...2..."

"Then what"

1842

"1...8...4...2"

I agree. It goes both ways too.

Managers who dont understand that there are different ways to motivate employees. Sometimes you use the "big stick" approach, other times it's best to just be supportive/complimentary. Neither approach works for everyone or in every situation.

(I'm fortunate to be observing this by watching clients, not having to suffer through it personally)

I love Benadryl and it's really the only thing otc or prescription that works on my pollen allergies, but now and then I'll take it and it will completely knock me out to the point I feel like I'm roofied and physically cannot get up. You could rape me all you wanted and I'd just lay there. I've been trying to take 1 capsule instead of 2 lately.

People who take all of the badges off the back of their cars. For example, a Nissan Altima passed me into work this morning that only had the Nissan badge left in the center of the trunk lid. The “Altima” name on the left and what would be the engine size/trim level on the right were both gone. While a Nissan reminded me of this one, I tend to see this most with BMWs and Benzes.

Look you de-badging drivers, you aren’t foolin' anyone. If I see you’ve taken the trim-level badge off of your car, I’m assuming you bought the lowest-spec stripper model and you’re embarrassed about it. I’m not looking at a de-badged car and assuming you bought a top-of-the-line model.

I always liked the people who bought a toyota truck and removed the "TO" and the "TA", so that what was left, in the middle of the tailgate was:

"YO"

People with 26.2 or 13.1 bumper stickers on their cars. I really don't care that you ran the marathon.

Same goes for the OBX / other vacation destination bumper stickers.

Any company that what they say on their website and what is the actual case are different. If you have a website, you need to keep it up to date.

I showed my parents the "Ship my Pants" ad, but we had to sit through a Youtube ad that was longer than the video itself.

I really hate that.

I'll go one better

Somebody at work has a "0.1 - I barely run" oval, but I can't find a pic of that sticker on google images.

I think stickers that low are a bit excessive, even a 6.2/10k sticker is a bit much.

Dedications to deceased people on the back of vehicles (dumpy old pickups most often).

Beacause nothing says rest in peace, Bubba Peterson like a cross on the back of a 1982 F-150.

Anybody memorializes me on their rear window and I will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

My parents didn't know that tabs existed until I showed them in December. Don't think they're going to want to switch browsers.

I already have ad block on my laptop. This was on their desktop.
