People Who Bug Me

I was inspired by Davezilla's "More People We Dislike" post to come up with my own list of people who bug me.

  • Left foot brakers: I can always recognize the left foot braker, because they're going down the highway at the same speed as everyone else, but their brake lights flicker on and off. Their brakes probably have a lifespan of 8 weeks.

  • Left lane drivers: Are you sensing a pattern here? I hate it when people drive in the left lane and they're going slower than the people in the right lane, and there's no one in front of them.

  • People who correct me with questions: If I am ever forced to go into a Starbucks, I order a medium latte. The barista always says, "Grande latte?" I say, "No, a medium." This is why I always go to independent coffee shops.

  • People who pull out in front of me, but go slower than me: You know who you are. (This didn't start out to be a driving rant, but so far, it's bad drivers who bug me the most.

  • People who say I hate beer: That's like saying I don't like food. There are literally thousands of beers available, and they all taste different. And unless you have a wheat/gluten allergy, I can find a beer you'll like.

  1. How about "I hate beer"... "that costs money"?

  2. Hmmmmm.....I would be more likely to whiz by you in my powder blue audi than go slow in front of you.....and brakes....that's that pedal in the middle, right?? :)

    However, I have been known to say, "I don't like beer" within earshot of you from time to time. While you are certainly welcome to try to woo me over....I can't get past the "beer" taste...wheat, flavored, light, dark...not feelin it.....but if you're buyin....I'm game!!


  3. @Becky, Because you said "it's the pedal in the middle," that just earned you 20 bonus cool points, since it means you're driving a stick, which means you're using your left foot properly.

    And as far as the beer goes, I'll make you a wager that I can find a beer you'll like. If you like it, you buy it. If you don't, I'll buy it.
