Remembering a post that you wanted to reread and then realizing it was in JTOR and I'm not allowed to read that thread. :(

When you are walking your normal pace towards a building with automatic doors that are slow to open. You maintain your pace in a game of chicken to see which flinches first and at the last second you do a weird hitch in your step in order to keep walking and not run into a slower than molasses door that has now ruined your majestic stride.

I used to play that game with traffic in college. Id also look with peripherals and drivers would not like it when i walked full stride right to the edge of the curb before stopping.

The doors at our local Rite Aid do this all the time. I'm going to break my nose running into them sometime.

It's not really irrational, but I seriously wish the idiots who keep setting stuff on fire in my apartment complex would stop. The fire alarm sounds like an effing air raid siren.

It's happened literally every 2 weeks since our second semester started. Kind of annoying (especially when you need to study for a midterm, let alone 4).

Also added to the list: teachers who give their midterms at the same time as other teachers. 4 in 3 days (had to get one moved from Thursday since I would have had 3 otherwise).

DJs on SiriusXM. If it's a music station, just stfu. The worst are Madison on Alt Nation and the guy that really loves his own voice on the Jazz station, 67. No idea how many times I've flipped the Jazz station off because there is no chance I want to hear him talk, I just want some soothing elevator music to do homework or relax to.

That's the main reason why I ditched Sirius a few years ago. I want to hear talk on the talk stations and music on the music stations. The exception is when there's a show that tells you about the music without talking over the intro to the song. I don't mind a little talk like that, I just don't want "shtick".

That and Howard is on no more than once a week it seems so whatevs.

P.S. I was on the air of the Derek and Romaine show talking about Rolling Rock years ago.

People who will stand in front of the cream and sugar near our coffee at work and keep standing there instead of grabbing a couple packets and getting the hell out of the way.

I'll usually just stand there looking at them until they move timing how long they are inconsiderate jackasses.

Being the last post on a page and then wondering if anyone goes back to that page once the new page is started or if your post gets missed altogether.

If he's the same guy that got skittles to switch from lime to apple, he should be given the noble peace prize and medal of honor and purple heart and a dairy queen coupon book

Cars that turn their backup lights on when you use the keyless entry or remote starter. Have stopped in a parking lot several times thinking someone was backing out when there was not even anyone in the car. Then along derps the owner....

I have a short in my wiring. If my left turn signal is on and then I step on the brake my turn signal shuts off and the brakelight flashes. I'm overjoyed since it just came out of the shop last Friday for a similar issue. :face:
