    People who can clearly see I am reading a book, yet insist on talking to me and then get upset when I'm not listening.

    When someone titles a thread in ALL CAPS!  I am perfectly able to read.  You don't have to yell.
     
     
    It happened tonight.  I was in a supermarket (which has fairly narrow aisles) in the soup aisle.  An elderly couple (I am 77 years old myself) had parked their cart perpendicular to the aisle, leaving just enough room for a cart to squeeze by around the back of the cart.  Since the soup was on sale, the aisle was crowded to start with.  The lady was on one side of the cart, the man on the other, debating back and forth what flavors of soup they would buy.  After standing back and waiting for about 10 minutes, with these two making absolutely no progress as far as anyone could see, I was able to locate the flavors of soup I wanted (which happened to be on the top shelf directly in front of their cart).  I reached over in front of the man and grabbed the soup I wanted saying, "Excuse me!" (about knocking him over in the process).  He turned, looked at me and gave me the dirtiest look I have gotten in a long time, as if I should have waited until they were finished with their "shopping" before butting in.  I immediately put my soup in my cart and high-tailed it out of there.

    When there is limited street parking and the person at the front of the street doesn't pull up as far to the corner as allowed, taking up the space of two cars.
     
    When someone would call me at the store for the address and when I was about to give it to them say..,.. hold on while I get a pen.

    When people are paying in the grocery check out with a check-fishing around for the checkbook, making it out to the store, and then proceeding to balance the checkbook.

    And of course they wait until the last possible second to do all of this.

    My own pet peeve: I get bugged more than other people do when food is layered in a way that makes it hard to eat neatly. Two examples:
    - a stuffed chicken breast often comes out just a little tough, so that you have to press down to cut it with a knife - and as you press down, the stuffing squeezes out, so that by the time you've cut yourself a bite, the bite has only chicken, but not stuffing.
    - a napoleon pastry usually has the pastry slightly tough, so that you have to press down to get a bite, and the pressing down pushes out while you do so.
    Rarr!

    On a related note, when I call for a taxi and the answer is always "20 minutes or less". Which can mean anywhere from 5 to 90 minutes depending on the day and time.

    People who park their grocery carts so close to the shelves, it blocks you from reaching the items on the shelf.
     
    Salad ingredients cut so large (cucumbers) you have to cut them again to get them in your mouth.
     
    Greasy salt and peper shakers, and sticky syrup dispensers, your food gets cold while you go wash your hands.

    Parents who talk to their 2 year olds as if they are too dimwitted to understand proper English.
    Oh, yeah -- And people who speak baby talk to babies. Speak English folks. That way they'll learn to speak an actual language.

    When growing up back in the 50's...the words.."time out" were (generally) related to sports. As youngsters,when we misbehaved,we knew we were either gonna get spanked,or made to stand in a corner. When we got older,and disobeyed...we were grounded.....depending on how bad the "crime" was,we were dealt one or more of the following punishments......sent to our rooms,mandated to write 100 times (I will not _ _ _ _ again.),stripped of phone privilages,tv,ball games,movies,etc.,and our chore list (as if it weren't already long enough) grew longer. Now-a-days,I bite my tongue each time I hear a parent say..."That's it..time out." Or "You're grounded,go to your room." Absolutely....let's send them to their rooms...where it is wall to wall electronics. It wasn't until I married and had children of my own that I began to appreciate the 50's era...and chose to raise my Daughters in the same manner...and they all turned out to be GREAT kids.........................Shadow

    Cell phone used in inappropriate places.
    Not just that people use cell phones in inappropriate places, but have you ever noticed how THEY TALK REAL LOUD ON THEM?
     
    When my Dad was alive he was told that being around a cell phone was not good for his pace maker, and I did ALL my business on the cell, so when ever I got a call I would excuse myself and get as far away from Dad as possible, then take the call.  As it turned out later, Dad was just against the darn things period.  He even told me (finally) that I didn't need to leave the area when I was getting a call, just 'please, make it quick,' which I did.
     
    He'd REALLY come unglued if we were in a restaurant and some one near us was on a cell.  But then, that was just Dad being Dad.
