    That reminds me. People who text and drive. If you're a passenger look at everyone you pass and count how many people you see texting or looking down at something. It's amazing how many people are constantly looking at their phone. I wouldn't be surprised if it was around 20 percent.

    People who automagically speed up when they get to a passing lane on a narrow two-lane road.
    People driving slow in the left lane in general.
    People who stop in the middle of a hallway to talk to each other or park their cart in the middle of the supermarket aisle.
    Loud talkers.
    In other words, people oblivious to those around them.

    People here in Vegas have a me first attitude while driving.They need to exit so instead of slowing down they cut right in front of you and exit forcing you to brake. They also lie to sit at a stop and wait until you get close and then ull out in front of you.

    When I lived on the Oregon Coast that used to drive me insane. I lived right off 101 and tourists would go 45 mph looking at the ocean then speed up to 65 mph when they got to a passing lane. If they were really good they'd get into the passing lane as well.

    Guys who watch you with binoculars from their boat then zoom over and throw the anchor 20 yards from you when they realize you're catching fish.

    Guys who call at every duck they see with the same routine every time...and they're bad at calling. All morning long.

    Realizing you really have to poop...right at shooting time.

    Guys that say " have to poop" instead of:
    " taking a dump"
    " dropping a load"
    " doing a Dempster Dumpster"
    " taking a crap"
    " hitting the head"
    " taking a s&%t "

    or a million other manly sayings.

    I'll second the "blocking the boat ramp" pet peeve.
    I've also witnessed more than once the folks who launch a boat, for the first time of the season, only to have the motor not run....they then say "Well, it worked fine last year". They then proceed to block the ramp/dock with a non-running boat.

    I was born in Michigan but moved all over due to a military family. We settled in the St. Louis area. Never have I heard so much "warsh" instead of "wash", or George War-shington instead of Washington, and so on.
    I know several people that just cant seem to pronounce George, or corn, or forty with change the "O" into a soft "a" sound i.e. 39+1 = "farty" or George is pronounced "Jar-ge", and corn is "carn".

    People that dont use their blinkers when turning.
    People in my subdivision that feel 55mph is acceptable in a 30mph zone.
    People walking down the middle of the road or parking lot when I am driving and/or looking for a parking spot.
