was at the grocery store yesterday. put the groceries in my car then started walking the cart to the cart return. I saw a guy walk his cart over towards the cart return to a curb that was 2 feet away from the cart return. he then lifted the front wheels of the cart and put them on the curb and walked away. I don't get it. It actually took more effort to do what he did than to just put the cart in the cart return. After i put mine in the return, I just grabbed his cart quick and put it in its proper location.

another grocery store hate... people that just put stuff back on the shelves in the wrong area, especially refrigerated items in non-refrigerated locations. take the extra 2 minutes to go back and put it where it belongs if you don't want it.

people need to stop referring to exits on the parkway by their exit number. when giving directions, it is no use to kenny the kangaroo or any other self respecting yinzer to say "oh, you need to take exit 47A of 376 West!" Just say, take the greentree exit or whatever.

So is it the new thing now to make a heart shape with your hands and take pictures of it??? Either with another persons hand being the other half of the heart, or making the heart shape and taking a photo with something in the background being seen through said heart?

I've only noticed one person doing it on FB, but they've done it more than once. It was probably closer to 5-6 times.

Gonna have to pay more attention to this so I know who to unsubscribe from.

Respectfully disagree with Kenny the Kangaroo. Especially considering many times, there are multiple exits for the same burg.

how about you use both the exit number and the exit name. There problem solved. They should call me into the NHL and fiscal cliff talks.

I would argue that on roads that utilize the mileage numbering system, using the exit number is far superior. If you want exit 53 and you are at exit 26, you immediately know there are roughly 27 miles until your exit.

What do you mean? All you have to do is follow the highlighted part of the road?

Didn't they just change the exit names a few years ago?

What about 276? Or 476? 676? You're clearly biased against the number 3

I am irrationally peeved by other drivers who go too slow and force me to wait for them in order to turn when I could have gone. Let me clarify. Say I’m coming up to a left turn I want to make where there are no stop signs on the road I’m on. I see a car coming toward me, and my brain does a flash calculation of how far away they are and makes an estimate of how fast they must be traveling. I conclude that they are too close to me for me to safely make a left turn in front of them, so I come to a stop and wait. After coming to a stop, I realize that the oncoming car is in fact going much slower than I expected, and I could have turned. But by the time I make that realization, it is too late to still make a safe left turn. I end up sitting there while someone goes past who is doing 25 in a 45 or something like that.
