Or park the cart on the right side of the aisle and then stand beside it to look at something on the left side and act like you are a jerk for expecting them to open up space.

People that tailgate you on the interstate and when you get over to let them by, they maintain the same speed and never pass.

What grinds your gears?
Getting to the Docs office 15 minutes as they request, which I find ridiculous to simply sign in, then sitting there reading women’s day for another 30-45 minutes before they even call you. Getting weighed and temped by the nurse, then sitting in the exam room for ANOTHER half hour before the Dr finally knocks and comes on in.

Jerks who drink all but a half of cup of coffee, won't make a fresh pot or turn off the pot, but as soon as you brew some they must get the first cup.

I work in a large health care system that employees 35,000 people. We are also faith-based. On Veteran's Day one day one of the nuns sent out a company-wide email to honor veterans. At least 150 people responded with a "thanks" or "me too" to everyone in the system. We then got another 75 or so people telling people to stop hitting "reply to all". We then got another 40-50 "sorry about that's" or "my bad's".

One of my clients is a Fortune 20, and about a year ago their entire email system was shut down for a couple of hours due to a company-wide reply all crisis. Would've been hilarious if they weren't so pissed.

...segue to my complaint: Clients who call at/near close of business, expecting to chat for an hour.

My turn: People who won't use their turn signals. Hey, how hard is it to just flick your wrist and turn the dang things on. They'll sometimes wait until they get to their turn and then suddenly turn scaring the crap out of you. Stupid idiots in our city are bad at doing that.

Another one is the drivers that like to tailgate. Heck how much time are they going to gain if they don't pass. Most of the time you catch up to them at the stop light anyway. I'm usually going over the speed limit by three mph so it isn't like I'm going slow.

They are the same people who pull out in front of you making you slam on brakes than turn at the next intersection.

Or going down the interstate on cruise control and passing the same stupid SOB five times because they speed up and pass you then slow down over and over.

It should be legal to force them off the road after the 4th such incident.

Coworkers who listen to music loud enough on their earbuds that you can still hear them, and sometimes compound the madness by listening to some s*** like Kesha.

People who take twenty minutes in front of you for a stadium urinal.

Driving behind the person who wants/fears the green light turning yellow and not being able to pass them. They tap the brake waaaaaaay before approaching the light.

LEFT LANE DRIVERS. Every day going home I get in the right lane and pass about 10-15 of them at a time. Why don't they realize that if everyone used both lanes and only passed in the left lane that everyone would get to their destination faster?

And another driving nuisance is the ******* smokers who think it's not littering to throw their damned cigarette out the window. Especially when it happens to bounce off my car!

RE: What grinds your gears?
Another driving nuisance.

Here in Michigan, they quite frequently have a mile long passing lane on two lane highways. Without fail, as soon as we hit the four lane portion, they asshat in front of me who is driving the speed limit will speed up making it hard to pass. You'd think they wouldn't want me behind them knowing I want to go faster.
