    My neighbours.

    -They talk normally at the volume most people shout at
    -Their preferred place to chat is in the middle of their garden, practically under my window
    -I find their language+accent very annoying (i think Polish, but not entirely sure)
    -They have the 'spitting outside' habit, which they do every hour or so
    -Their spitting is done in an over the top (immensely loud) way, (like in a cartoon: "HrwerrrrssssSSSSHHHH-PTPTPT!")
    -Their baby does not cry, it screeches like a high-pitched banshee, i'm actually worried about glass shattering :lol:

    They're actually *really* nice people, but i do find them incredibly irritating most of the time :D

    my dad is an awesome driver too. i couldnt learn any better from anyone else. I just dont like his driving style. he knows what hes doing. i just dont like it. he always is driving like he is in a hurry and drives very aggressively. I drive very aggressive sometimes, but thats okay if i'm the driver. LOL

    I hate my mum's driving as well. As for her being a nervous passenger - I scared her into "STFU-Mode" when I had my Golf GTI - bombing down a hil in town, her going "But that's over 60" (60 km/h being urban limits speed limit). I went "it's over 130" and brake hard, into a corner.

    Not a particularly nice thing to do, but it was getting too much. And, admittedly, the car was fun on tha tbit of road.

    As for my dad - Him and myself get along fine with each other driving.

    PPOTD:
    World F**** CUP FEVER, WUWUZELAS and all the rubbish that accompanies it. To a point where half the frikken firms gathers around TV's and drinks for every match, and everyone else (i.e. non-footie fan) has to work though the noise

    Assholes that have nice houses and obviously can afford it, but don't tip. I freakin drive 20 minutes to get to your god dammed house, and the least you could do is give me a couple bucks. especially when you live in the nicest housing development in town, and I give you change from 2 20s for a 23 dollar order.

    Also... Assholes that ask "did you get lost?" when the pizza is late. No i didn't get ****ing lost. You live in a different ****ing town than the pizza place you just ordered from. How soon do you expect the dammed thing.

    On the lighter side... drunk people tip surprisingly well.

    I've taken to doing a dd/mmm/yyyy format myself, just on principle. Today is 10 Jun 2010. Christmas is 25 Dec 2010. When spoken today is "ten June twenty ten". It's very objective and simple and no one can ever get confused because the month uses letters.

    But your peeve and talladega's post after has me asking a question: What's standard in Canada?

    F***** VUVZELAS
    It's 7:50 AM, and these g*d damned things have been going for an hour now.
    To give you an idea:
    I am sitting inside an office building, with windows closed, the aircon on, the doors closed.
    I can hear two things: Draksis typing and a f***ing vuvuzela at any given time. It's grating my t*ts now.

    Ya, that crap is so irritating, and the major problem is that it will be going on ALL.DAY! :wallbash:

    If any of you don't know what it sounds like: think dieing yak, stuck in the mud, screaming for help. Now imagine about 50 of them, all at once! :waah::waah:

    and screaming accross the road...
    I think I died and went to hell... maybe not. Celine Dion would be in hell, backed up by a Vuvuzela orchestra

    people that wait until the last second to order.

    last night at exactly 11:57 some stupid ****ing lady ordered a pizza. We close at 12:00. It wouldn't have been as big a deal if she just ordered a large, but no, she orders a Giant, which means I have to sheet it out, put it in a pan, sauce it, cheese it, and generally make a big ****ing mess that needs to be cleaned again. Then, she decides to wait until 12:26 to come pick it up, when we told her it would be 10 minutes. This is all made worse by the fact that she was about a 20 second walk from our store(in her own store).

    When your grocery store has exactly none of the fresh chickens you wanted, and that was the only thing you needed.

    stop-turners. you know; the people who think their volvo will tip over if they clear the lane any faster than a crawl. live on the edge you yuppy. make that corner at a respectable speed. your holding up an entire lane by coming to a near stop to make your right hand turn.

    i agree with that, its my pet peeve in life.

    Except the statement towards volvo's, mine's usually sideways into any turn, nothing better than turning into a downhill junction to feel the steering go light and then back end flop out like a drunk elephants on the back, to then snap back and pull like a train! Yes understeer followed by oversteer, all in a FWD car.

    of coarse i didnt mean offense to ALL volvo drivers. but you have to admit, volvos are traditionally a utilitarian vehicle and most people that drive them dont drive them like they have anywhere in particular to be at the time :lol:

    maybe i should have used oldsmobile or cadillac as examples :thumb:
