Traffic

This is my drive in every morning -

Forty minutes of pure trafficky goodness. Do you know how much energy it takes to hate all those people at one time? I used to try to hate only the stupid ones, but it is such an overwhelming majority I thought my hating would be more efficient to just lump them all into one category.

So as I finally get some coffee running through my veins, helping to speed up my hatred of all things traffic, I pose this question -

What situation displays the most combined stupidity for you?

Is it traffic jams

or airports

or malls

or Nickelback concerts

or another situation that I missed?

Join me in the hatred - just don't you date switch lanes without a blinker.

My Trifecta of Hell involves the following:

1. Hot places (Like Cleveland in August)
2. Screaming children
3. Waiting in line.

Places this can be accomplished: College graduation, the post office, grocery stores, traffic jams (kids are iffy but the AC is broken in my car)

The Cinema Audience.

Hands down a combination of the most selfish, ignorant, annoying, loud, obnoxious, smelly and pathetic excuses of human beings ever!

Grocery stores.

Sidewalks.

I have to vote traffic. Especially merging. Why is it that merging is SO difficult for people?!?!

Christina_the_wench said...

I'm with stealth. Late mergers are fair game and if you make them cry or wreck, so much the better.

RM said...

People who use the bill-changer machines on tollways...seriously?!?! I mean just run the damn toll....Soccer moms who let their kids run around restaurants (I serioulsy can't wait for kids to go back to school!) O and strollers in general, they annoy me in grocery stores, malls, running/biking trails, etc etc...

Grocery stores during the day. I try to go after 10pm but sometimes that's not possible. GET YOUR F&*&^$# CART OUT OF THE WAY!!!!

Jen said...

I hate people who stand in the middle of the escalator, instead of moving to the side to let folks that are in a hurry get by. Especially when these "escalator blockers" are wearing Nickleback concert shirts....

Getting stuck in traffic leaving the mall while heading to a Nickelback concert at the airport.

BrazenBareToe said...

All of the above and Wal Mart shoppers.

Phil said...

I am so right there hating on traffic. And Nickelback. And jerks in traffic on their way to Nickelback concerts.

Angela said...

As a waitress at a seat-yourself restaurant, I fucking HATE more than anything when customers sit at a dirty table while there are PLENTY of clean tables around it. You have no idea how angry it makes me.

Allison M. said...

middle aged women who have a cell phone and can't talk and drive at the same time.

yay for the no text/no drive.

I observe the most stupidity here:

1. Grocery lines (we've had them for years and folks still can't manage to get this process of checking/buying/packing right)

2. Gas stations (don't go into the store unless you absolutely have to)

3. Drivers (many think they can multi-task by driving and talking on their cell, while applying make-up or shaving...nope doesn't work!)

LiLu said...

Everyone knows I get the worst Sidewalk Rage... but I'll take it over road rage any day. At least this way if there's a "problem", I (probably) can't get sued.

Andhari said...

Traffic turns me into a monster everytime! Beside that, hmmm, traditional markets, crowded supermarkets, hot sunny day and probably rave parties.

"no dude, i don't want to fight you."

"no dude, i'm not gay."
