People who answer a question by repeating the question.


People who begin every statement with "UM".


People who think it makes them sound inteligent if they put a pause and an "ah" several times in a statement.


People who use big words!

Even worse are the mopes who have to drag their feet when they 'fip flop'....  PICK UP YOUR FLAMING FEET FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!


Don't sweat the petty things...and don't pet the sweaty things
Come to the dark side...WE have cookies!
Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance
The price of Freedom is ETERNAL VIGILANCE
Dream as if you'll live forever--Live as if you'll die tomorrow!

I am positive there is not enough room here for all of mine... here goes, people on cell phones, people  who make calls on their cell phones when getting on the train, getting off the train, standing in the doorway blocking others..at the foot or head of a stairway or escalator..people playing thier Ipods loud enough for everyone else to hear..people playing radios at work- we sit in cubicles! ,women who don't wipe their  toiletseat off in the ladies room ,like I won't notice or I'm going to do it for them...people who ask me : what am I eating? ( like they have never seen a tuna sandwich...) or ask me if it's good...and then watch me eat it...my most favorite is  when people ask me "How much  is your rent?" this is  to be continued....!!

PPL HAVE A VERY BAD HABIT WHERE I PATROL OF JUMPING OUT OF THEIR VEHICLES AS SOON AS WE BOTH COME TO REST ON A TRAFFIC STOP. I KNOW THAT THERE IS AN AGE OLD DEBATE IN THE POLICE COMMUNITY ABOUT TRAFFIC STOPS... "GO TO THE CAR OR HAVE THE DRIVER COME TO YOU" EVERYONE HAS THEIR PREFERENCE BUT I PREFER THE DRIVER STAY IN THE VEHICLE UNTIL ASKED TO STEP OUT IF THE SITUATION DEEMS IT NECESSARY. AND WHAT REALLY BURNS ME UP IS A GUY THAT JUMPS OUT AT FIRST COMPLIES WHEN ASKED TO GET BACK IN AND THEN I RUN THEIR LICENSE AND GET A HIT I ASK THE SAME GUY TO GET OUT TO ARREST HIM AND HE ASKS ME "FOR WHAT?" ARENT YOU THE SAME A-HOLE THAT WAS EXTREMELY EAGER TO GET OUT NOT JUST 2MINS AGO.

I find it irritating when people offer unwanted child rearing advice...especially if they reared/are in the process of rearing little hooligans.

I have a few:



  • When someone unexpectedly tries to take something from my hand (I'll snatch the life out of em')

  • People who scrape their teeth on silverwear when they eat

  • People who can't be on time

  • Drivers on cell phones

  • Drivers who think it's their job to regulate passing lanes

  • Drunks

  • Snobs

  • Racists

  • Popped collars

  • People who wear sunglasses at night

  • People who hate kids

  • Panhandlers

  • Women with no respect for themselves

  • Men with no respect for anyone

I may publish a book on the subject.

 It makes my skin crawl when someone scrapes silverware on their teeth.  Unfortunately alot of people know it and will do it anyways to get a rise out of me.

That's why you politely pick up your things and move your meal elsewhere. I think we should also add

People who try to get a rise out of you

to the list.

I hate it when people put things IN my hand- they constantly put papers or pens just right in my hand when I'm standing...wish someone would put a million dollars in my hand...or a twenty: I'd settle for a twenty..

When people stop by unannounced drives me crazy. Especially when they ring the door bell at 11 in the morning while I am sleeping after working all night long.



This is very aggrivating, why do people have such a hard time with shift workers wanting to get some sleep during the day.

 When a person is booked in to jail and one of the first things out of their mouth "when do I get my FREE phone call, I have a constitutional right to a free phone call"  That is when I chuckle to myself and politely tell them..."You show me where in the constitution of the United States of America it says when you are booked in to jail you get a free phone call and I will get you one... until that time you do have the right to shut up and sit down because I am busy and you are annoying me!!"  


Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.

A few of mine:


- when drivers don't use their blinkers.


- when my blackberry's hourglass won't go away when I try to make a call.


- dropped phone calls


- when someone coughs/sneezes and they don't cover their mouths


 


 


And finally? When I get this;


"Your name is different, what nationality are you?"


me: "My name is Croatian"


"Croatian? Whats that? Did you just say crustacean?" (I've actually gotten this before on numerous occasions)


Adapt, improvise and overcome.

When you are at the movies and someone does one or all of the below


Kicks the back of your seat.....usually just nervousness, but, not cool


Empty seats all over the place, and someone easily 3 times your size just has to get by you.  Fine, but, then, they have to go to the bathroom, or to the snack bar, each time, making you stand up while they go by, and then come back........grrrrrr


Telephones ringing more than twice, if even that


Talking during the majority of the movie.............


These people should just wait for the DVD to be released, or , heaven forbid, get some manners


don't forget unwrapping a piece of candy..real,real slow.. so.. as.. not.. to.. make.. any.. noise.......!
