Ouch. I have experienced this issue riding the Paoli-Thorndale line after a night out drinking in Philly. BRUTAL.

With a name like SEPTA, one would think a bathroom would be their pièce de résistance

Made it to my stop without incident. Drove another 10 minutes to a Panera for dinner and used the bathroom there. And there are emergency windows but I didn't feel like spending the night in a Philly jail.

Had to drive home for a viewing yesterday and traffic was backed up 3 miles before the squirrel hill tunnel because of a wreck on the other side of the road on Greensburg Pike...which is almost in Monroeville. 10 miles of rubbernecking caused me to be a half hour late, which in turn kept me in town until later than planned since I now had to late for the even viewing that was 3 hours later.

If the wreck isn't on your side of the road, there is no **** reason to slow down. Proceed at the normal speed as if there wasn't an accident.

(sorry, that was a rational rant. deal with it. 8-) )

I get the one pic at the beach, where that person is glad to finally be on vacation.

My favorite one is where they post 10 pics of the same thing and you end up trying to figure out what the difference between the pics are. In most cases, there isn't one. UPLOAD ALL THE PICS!!

As one regular here would certainly agree, adding an egg to a cheesesteak, burger, and many sandwiches does nothing but vastly improve them. Why can't I get an egg on my Whopper, Single, or Quarter Pounder? All of those restaurants cook eggs all morning long for their breakfast menus, so it's not like they don't have the means.

when someone is doing something stupid to hold up a long line at a store, and then proceeds to apologize to the cashier (who doesn't give two craps) instead of the dozen people in line behind them.

At a 4 way red light. I'm making a right turn - second car in the line. The first car coming in the opposite direction wants to turn to his left (the same direction as I am going), guns it when the light turns green and cuts in front of our first car. I catch a glimpse of him, he's on his cell phone. He then goes 40 mph the entire way, slowing myself and the 4 or 5 cars behind me. You almost have to try to be that much of an *******.

Yeah....if you blaze out to get into a lane or something then act like you are in the hurry you seem to be. Don't gun it and then sit back at 5 under the speed limit. I expect some further reckless driving on your part...

Sooooooo anyway.....

People that take forever to get out of an elevator while you're waiting to get on. The doors open and everyone stands there. They finally mozy off just in time for me to try to get in while the doors are shutting on me. RAGE. This happens to me weekly.

Also, can't remember if this has been mentioned, but people that come to almost a complete stop before making a right turn. WHY.

If it is a stop sign or a red light, I'll do it because that's the law and I don't want to get a ticket.

No, this is just people making a generic right turn---no light, no stop sign, just turning.

This happens to me at least 20+ times a day. I work at AGH in the materials management and my primary job is to pull stock from the shelves in the warehouse and take it up to the nurses and the doctors on the floors. So I ride the elevators maybe 40+ times in an eight hour shift.

Oh God. As someone that has this weird thing about being in the elevator with someone else (forced awkward conversation, weird silence, etc) and will actually pretend I'm on my phone if I see someone else getting in one on the ground floor to go up, this frightens me.

If I'm being tailgated, I'll slow down my right turns in an excruciatingly slow fashion. It's wonderful.

If i'm being tailgated I slow down pretty drastically in general. Until they stop or get out from behind me.

point of information: i didnt troll you. i dont care for your antics and didnt want you to be a part of the game i was moderating. i didnt make a scene about it. you're not entitled to play because you signed up. i did it in a non-confrontational, mature way. suck it up, sister.

yeah, this is a rule I stick pretty closely to. If someone is tailgating me, I will go well below the speed limit until they back off. Now if there's a line of cars behind them, I'll just go the speed limit, and brake check him/her a few times.

I average around 3500 miles of business mileage a month. In my observation tailgating is the least worrisome thing I see on the highway.

Sunday drivers in the left lane, and people constantly changing lanes in traffic are maddening.
