    Sitting anywhere with ample seating, especially a restaurant, and having people come in and sit at the table right next to you.

    Ooh, good one, Andy. The same thing (only worse, IMO) happens in restrooms. Twelve stalls and they have to sit in the one right next to you.

    The terms “baby daddy” and “baby mommy” or any variation thereof, sounds infantile when used by an adult (sets my teeth on edge). There are plenty of perfectly good words already in the English language which should be used instead: father, mother, mom, dad, parents.

    Reboot.

    Reboot is what you do to a computer, and I am fine with that.

    Reboot in reference to a new version of a movie or Tee Vee show, or whatever?

    People who honk or shout things out their car windows when they pass me. Dude, I’m jogging, not looking for a date. Knock it off.

    People who go by without saying a word. Really, I’m trying to jog here! Could use a little support.

    Trust me, JKB, I definitely don’t need one of those, even if my husband does insist that I’m the man of the house. ;)

    As to your other comment, if you find remarks such as “Come suck it, b*tch” encouraging, you’re welcome to them.

    I get irrationally aggravated when people working at the grocery store, Nordstrom or any other retail establishment tell me how to use the PIN Pad when paying with debit or credit. I’m 30- not 100. I know how to use your machine. For one, they all have the same basic instructions. Second, the readout tells you what to do, in case I’ve forgotten.

    I get even more aggravated when they’re not looking at me while they’re telling me how to use it. It’s not only poor customer service to refuse to look at your customer but I’m literally standing there, entering my PIN, and you’re saying to me “enter your PIN” and I freaking AM entering my PIN. “Press the green button.” It happens nearly everywhere I go and makes me want to play dumb and waste their time asking them how in the world to use this bizarre contraption that I have never seen before.

    Woo, I feel better :)

    FCa, in regards to the store cashier not making eye contact with you while entering your PIN, they may simply be averting their eyes, so as not to appear to be making a visual note of it.

    I always did that as a cashier, but otherwise tried to make eye contact as much as possible.

    Mike- oh totally. I did the same thing in my many years of food service and retail. The annoyance really arises when they haven’t looked at me throughout the transaction. I always provided excelled customer service but really only expect “good enough” and I don’t feel like averting ones eyes throughout the transaction is “good enough.” I am selective about my annoyances :)

    Pedestrians who bolt out of shops into the traffic without seeing if there are cars there and then scream at you. Also pedestrians walking late at night in dark clothes. I can’t see you.

    Westwood Village post office… a busy place indeed. I have a P.O. Box there and it takes me all of 30 seconds to get in and get out and when I say OUT I mean it!!! That means even out of the parking lot. Drives me batsh*t crazy when people sit in there cars and sort through their mail just taking their own sweet time when there are cars lining up to park & then disrupting the mailbox drop-off lane!! Sort it inside or at home! Whew, now I feel better.

    the constant back up noise of vehicles, a few warning beeps is all that is needed

    #782338

    So agree with dee. The state should automatically flunk vehicle inspections for loud exhaust.. Maybe they are already supposed to?

    rachel at national credit card services for constantly calling me warning me this is your last warning to lower your credit card rate; if it is the last warning why does she keep calling

    GR, and that’s only Rachel’s part time job.

    Her full time job is running one of those rug companies that’s been going out of business for the last 15 years.

    Safeway product pricing.

    First there’s the units switcheroo – can you comparison-shop when one product is labeled in ounces and the other in pounds? How about produce, when one is per pound and the other is ‘each’?

    And the expiring sale. They leave a sign up saying something’s on sale, with an expiration date on the sale. So if you buy it thinking it’s on sale, the register rings up the not-sale price. Gotta watch real carefully to catch that one, and then go to the trouble of complaining.
