GET OUT OF MY CUPHOLDERS, MILLENNIALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Over the past decade or so, I've had a variety of co-workers of various ages with whom I have taken road trips.
As background, I don't use the cupholders in my car for cups because they are full of pocket knives, store-specific discount cards, ID badge, gift cards, charging cords, and other things I want to keep handy, but out of sight in the lidded compartment that doubles as the cupholders.
Every one of my co-workers who have been millennials have (and are the only ones who have) rummaged through my console compartments without asking. And, not only do they open up the compartments uninvited, but they actually start pushing all the contents around to make room for their stupid frappe-latte-fru-fru Starbucks cups that their little addicted selves can't be found without.
AAARRRGGGG!!! DON'T RIFLE THROUGH MY CAR AND DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF!!!
...it's going to be ok, it's going to be ok.. <...breathing slow, deep breaths...>
Everyone else's stuff is ****, but your **** is stuff!! Inside your own car, at least.

"DO IT ONLINE" is the final straw in lousy customer service!
When they say that, it means "we made a program that may or may NOT be functional". It's all on you to make it work OR whine to the right people to figure out why.
YOU must figure out how their stinkin' program works.
If it doesn't work right, YOU are responsible for not responding to the business at hand.
Uppercase letters, OR lower case input. YOU figure it out!
If the program "F's" up, just TRY to get Human Help! YOU are screwed!
If they change their stinkin' program, they may forget to list the new instructions to help the user. YOU figure it out!
Customers chatting up the checkout people at the grocery store. Yes, I get that I now live in a beautiful, smaller, rural area and people are much friendlier, but the conversation is grinding the check-out to a halt.
Catch up on break or call her later.
I hate the fact that most of what I've been told over the years either cannot be proven or is a flat out lie meant to control what people think.
I also hate the fact that the majority of people I interact with on any given day not only believe these lies but will become hostile, the instant you question the chosen narrative.
I was going to pass by this thread, then the first horror story mentioned is crapped up Arby's sauce OMG... then to find out it wasn't true...I'm all warm and fuzzy now.
And the ones you DO find are not really strike-anywhere matches.
Being behind someone at a red light -
They have their window rolled down 5 inches - hand with cigarette hanging out -
Like they don’t want the cigarette- or don’t like smoke.
Then they flick the ashes- take a quick drag - then put hand back out.
Yep- looked high and low- finally found them at a local big supermarket- they were 99 cents a box........gotta go back.
People who block the aisle at the grocery store while they chit chat or stare mindlessly at stuff on the shelves.
Get some freaking situational awareness and move the cart off to the side. It's not that hard.
Racking up a bunch of "Likes" on a thread that get's disappeared. Lot of time and effort invested gone to pot by the mod who is feeling grumpy.
Don't get me started.....
No, that's what this thread is for. Getting you started.
Well? Go on, then ...
Bread bag ties being left hand threaded.....sometimes.
