got to add Reg E to that - I mean, any other business would have the right to refuse a refund based on customer neglect (AKA stupidity)

Hipocritical people.
Politcal correctness.
Ditto what BF said about TV shows
People that drain the coffee pot at work and don't start a new one.
People that jam the copier and move over to another one without clearing it

People who start answering your question before you have finished asking it.

People who do that and then talk louder to talk over you because their thoughts and opinions are better and more important than yours.

Store employees who don't say thank you after you have made a purchase.

Finishing lunch and still being hungry.

Stupid people who try to act like they are not stupid.

Being in a meeting and having the person leading the meeting READ their hand-outs to you. (Um, I know how to read, thank you. Could you summarize and move on????)

When a company calls and then has the nerve to put you on hold.

OH! And when people walk in front of you when you are looking at something in a store, and they don't say "Excuse me".

DQ, I heard Ellen DeGeneres talk about this once (it's one of her pet peeves, also) and she says, "You're welcome, Your Highness. I'm sorry I didn't have any rose petals to spread in your pathway." It probably doesn't sound too funny when you read it, but it was hillarious when she was telling it.

Um, Mary, they are called POWER SURGES, not hot flashes. Or you can just tell people you are on a mini tropical vacation by yourself and you will be back soon.

I hate that, too. I usually say "Excuse You" when that happens. I get some pretty ugly looks or just get ignored when I do that.

I'll have to remember that one! I have my son in the habit of saying "excuse me" now, and when someone else doesn't say it to us, he says "mom, she/he didn't say excuse me!". Out of the mouths of babes!

MaryRink - I've started taking Effexor for my hot flashes (or power surges) and it works wonderfully. There are a couple of side effects that I've experienced (yawning, dizziness), but the benefits still outweigh the bad.

People who don't know the difference between
your & You're, to & too, here & hear, there & their & they're

Also people who say things wrong...like supposubly. I'm sorry, it's supposedly! I get a kick out of hearing it though! I am always listening for people to say things wrong.
