I hate people who buy or play the lottery at gas stations and hold up the line for 5-10 minutes.

Let the bags pay the bag tax, I pay the Homer tax.

What if you want to see the total first?


If you have to ask you can't afford it.

(You still confirm the total. Do you write checks or something?)



Some places don't let you slide the card until the cashier is finished scanning.

I do hate two things about grocery lines
-Old ladies who fiddle with crap in their purse to put back their huge friggan wallet after they've paid - holding up the line for 30-40 seconds.
-Not bagging when there are big lines (if there is no bagger), unless you like standing around and doing nothing - bag your own groceries and save minutes of your life.

I feel there should be a separate Lotto Line and that regular customers should get first dibs.

I'll take lottery people any day over the people that I have to stand behind while they calculate which cigarette combination will save them 30 cents

My email sig has my whole middle name, because there were two of us here at work with the same name. I got here second, so I got shafted into having my middle name as my email/log-in/etc. But then I had people trying to call me by it and I looked at them like they had two heads. So at my wife's urging I changed it to read:

"CBear" StupidMiddlename Lastname

Unless one of them has an umlaut I'm still not impressed. ;)

As for the unique name e-mail thing, I'm the only person in the Navy/Marine Corps e-mail system, which comprises of everyone on active duty and all the contractors/civil service that work with them, with my last name. This makes it very easy to find me in the global directory. Also, the last person to serve in the Marine Corps with my last name prior to me was:

Spoiler:
My Dad. Duh.


Also, since I transitioned from active duty to civil service to contractor so quickly I've managed to maintain the same work e-mail since 2006.

The lunch room at work.

Table is left with crumbs
Food splattered and spilled in the microwave and never cleaned up
Garbage never taken out
Food left in fridge
Condiments returned to fridge with lids off or not tightened.

Grow up sloppy people...

I work with a lot of lawyers and this is pretty common.

People who admittedly say to me "I don't always watch the Pens, and if I do, it's only a part of a period because I'm putting my kids to bed" - and then tell my why my views on the team are wrong/stupid. RAGE LEVEL: RED.

I don't always rage, but when I do, my reasons are better than yours.

People who don't introduce themselves when they call. Unless I hear from you enough that I have you in my contacts list, I don't know you well enough to just recognize your voice. So say, "Hi, PghSkins, it's John Doe here."

If I sound odd when you call and just break right in to whatever you have to tell me, it's because I may not have a clue who you are. Or I have figured it out and I'm just annoyed.

I wish they had separate lines for lottery, gas payment, and food/snacks/etc. I understand some people like cash better but why I am waiting behind someone trying to pay for $20 of gas in cash on pump #3? I'm hungry for my MTO, damnit!

People that get indignant and pissed off that their hometown newspaper is now charging online readers for full access to the site. Really? The newspaper is providing a service that you can access all of this information in seconds from thousands of miles away, and you are ranting that they should provide it free of charge? Get real

I agree with this, but I understand why people are upset. Providing a free service for years upon years and then making it a pay site would probably rustle a few jimmies.

When PA Turnpike has all lanes "EZ Pass or Tickets"... the reason I pay for an EZ pass is so I dont have to wait in line.
