    This is a thread to voice your complaints about anything- just to gripe, commiserate, and empathize. Here's mine:
    UGH! I don't WANT to be waved on at a 4-way stop when it's NOT MY TURN! It's dangerous and it annoys and confuses everyone else waiting for their rightful turn!

    It is disturbing that so many drivers are unaware that there is a standard system for handling traffic at four-way stops.

    Stop pulling up at the curb to run inside you lazy self absorbed people.
    Especially when you park in a pedestrian zone!

    I KNOW that Lexus/BMW/Mercedes/Acura/etc. has Bluetooth or a built-in hands-free system. Just read the owner's manual and set it up, instead of fumbling with your hendheld while doing 25 in the left lane of a 45 mph street...

    ...If you REALLY must talk on your cell phone at all.

    I hate when people leave their trash in shopping carts. Do you think I like picking up your kid's snot rags out of a shopping cart when I go shopping or your empty starbucks food wrappers?

    Clean up after yourselves you slobs!!

    (phew feeling better now) LoL

    Timers that go "beep", or "ding" or any kind of noise. My whole world is run on timers - alarm clocks, meeting notices, project deadlines - they're all nothing but timers.

    And starlings - dirty, filthy birds!

    Sunny and others--

    How about the people who park in a NO PARKING ZONE that is a FIRE ZONE with YELLOW STRIPES PAINTED ON THE CURB IN PLAIN SIGHT and SIGNS POSTED. Sorry for the ALL CAPS and my rant--:blush:

    Seriously, we were at Reston Town Center last night at McCormick and Schmick eating dinner with friends, when we saw the Fairfax County police giving out tickets to violators for parking in a NO PARKING ZONE. Kinda interesting when someone stands there and is arguing with the cop when we are entering the restaurant. We heard the cop tell the person who he had just ticketed that he needed to read the signs.

    Great thread--Sunny--

    I can't stand the people who jump their turn at the 4-way stops...or the people who are in a coma and don't go when it's their turn. And all the people on their phones and blackberrys texting and checking their email every 2 nanoseconds.

    I could go on and on. But then again, life is too short to complain all the time...

    People who drive with just their parking lights on at dusk or during inclement weather. C'mon people, if you feel the need to be more visible because it's getting dark, turn your HEADLIGHTS ON

    People who don't put their headlights on when it's raining. it's a VA LAW! I guess they are running Silent as the color of their car merges with the rain?

    Oh and people who haven't read/heard of the new reckless driving rules from last July, should also check them out on the DMV site. You'd be suprised what you don't know you can be ticketed on....

    What's with smokers who throw their butts out the car window so they bounce off my car still lit! Use your ashtray in the car!

    (btw, this thread is great)

    Oh that is a good one. Smokers and their littering. Talk about having no consideration for anyone but themselves. :censored::angryfire:
