    Hey all,

    I'd like to see some of the things that really irritate you and get under your skin. Doesn't have to be anything major.

    I'll start.

    1. When filling in all those fields on some internet sites before you can send it they have that box with those scrambled letters and numbers that you just about have to GUESS at half of them before you can proceed. I HATE those things and the audio of the thing is NEVER decipherable.

    2. The Phone systems that damn near every single business in the world has these days where you have to listen to some KORNY opening message and then choose what option best fits you. This is being done at hardware stores, grocery stores, small restaurants, etc. Why don't they have someone just ANSWER THE DAMN PHONE?

    3. On Youtube videos when the people put music along with their video review when NO MUSIC is needed at all. Then the other videos that purport to be reviewing something and they spend 1/2 of the video talking about the box or the packaging or the instruction manual, anything BUT the product you tuned in to see.


    That's about it for me. Just thought I'd ask you all for your thoughts.

    Thanks for the time

    Nalajr

    The thread about people you dislike, as well as the thread about the thread about people you dislike, was shut down...so I see this going nowhere fast.

    INFRACTION!

    Slow, inattentive, unpredictable drivers.

    Good driving means more than eventually arriving at your destination without having crashed. Drive the speed limit. Accelerate briskly. Corner briskly. Get out of the passing lane. Signal, then maneuver. If there is a dedicated turn lane, get into it before braking. Merge correctly. Put down the phone.

    I didn't mean for this thread to be about member of GT. I didn't even think of it when I posted it.

    Hope it doesn't get locked down.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Those inconsiderate slobs who smoke next to a "No Smoking" sign.

    Those slobs who toss their cigarette out the car window when they're done with it.

    This is GT...anything and everything is subject to getting locked, especially if it starts becoming informative. You've been here since 2004 and you still didn't know this? :supergrin:

    Left lane campers.

    The long list of options you have to listen to while waiting to leave a voice mail.

    Folks that aren't on time.

    The fact that everyone around me drives 40 in a 55 zone and 10 in a 25. Also those people who sit there looking confused for 10 seconds when a red light turns green, these are normally the same people who stop at a flashing yellow light.

    Threads that are entitled something really brilliant...like "What if?"

    When I see a title like that I usually thing something like "What if you are an idiot."

    All the commercials and ads that you have to go through when researching a product and checking out videos of it. It's worse than TV.

    Yesterday I was checking out info on the new Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook with 15 inch screen. Every computer magazine site I went to, ad's, surveys, "you've won," and "secret car insurance trick for Texas drivers." Then when I'd click on a video to watch a review of it, I'd have to watch a 45 second commercial about some upcoming movie, car or tv series. And of course all the controls to the video player are disabled for the entire length of the commercial.

    In a supermarket, people who put their cart right in the middle of the lane so no one can get through, then take their time browsing the lane with no cosideration that they are holding every one else up.

    Commercials that try to make you believe they have testimonials from real customers, when we all know its just actors. Just tell me about your product, don't insult my intelligence.

    Thats just the two I have on the top of my head.
