Recently, I have been particularly annoyed by:
1) Idiot drivers who pass on the right when I am in the left hand lane traveling at or above the speed limit. This is illegal and dangerous but many don’t seem to realize it. (When someone rides Mel’s tail in the left hand lane or flashes their lights, she’ll slow down purposely just to piss them off. I normally can’t bring myself to aggravate the situation by doing that.)
2) People who don’t know the difference between your and you’re, their and they’re and to and too (and two!). Likewise for its and it’s, but that’s a little harder. Even I sometimes have give extra thought to who and whom, and who’s and whose, so I’ll cut you some slack for that one, but not much. I really believe everyone should know your/you’re, their/they’re and to/too/two and that not using the appropriate one is mostly laziness. The problem seems exacerbated by email communication.
3) People who can’t read, or won’t. I have a sign posted on my gate that says “Do not pull gate out. PUSH IN ONLY!” and yet I continue to have to fix my gate after some idiot torques the hinges by pulling the gate outward. It’s not like it opens easily in that direction, you really have to pull it hard. Why wouldn’t someone think to try the correct direction when encountering that kind of resistance? It’s just baffling.
That is all. For now, anyway.
