this is a sweeping generalization but people with names that do not get shortened and are insistent on it: people that refuse to be called mike or dave or tom and will call you on it every time. 100% of the time that person is a square

When someone makes a purchase at a counter (gas station, fast food, etc.) and when the transaction is over stand there and put everything back into their purse/wallet/pockets and whatever else it is they do. MOVE OVER!

Ha, friend just had a baby girl with her husband. They named her Mariposa. Be careful Googling that name, especially if you happen to spell it Mari Possa.

We watch this kids show every night after dinner. One segment is just running through a bunch of kids who have birthdays today. The names of these poor bastard kids infuriate me. Most often it's the regular names that are spelled wrong that make me see red.

How about when they stand there and scratch off the tickets they just bought?

driving on the vets bridge towards the boulevard and the people who merge on from 7th act like they have the right of way coming when they are going on to the blvd. terrible.

similarly, leaving the lowes parking lot in monroeville if you are turning right on 22, the people who are coming from across the street turning left act like the own that damn road.

Doing a CLE webinar this morning (patent trolls!), and between all the client installs and not having the requisite runtime environment on my machine, and popup blockers and company firewalls, and this that and the other, it took me 17 minutes to actually join the session.

My related gripe:

Enterprise level PC admins who push out ridiculous security settings, so that the Java plugin breaks every two weeks.

The misuse of words.
i.e., 'flustrated' vice 'frustrated', 'ideal' instead of 'idea', and forty eleven hundred others.
