A classic sporting rifle purchased recently would not fire regular ammunition. It would fire pistol ammo--in a chamber insert--but not full-size full-power rifle ammo for which it is chambered. Gunsmith said congealed oil was slowing down the firing pin/striker and to blast the bolt assembly with solvent or brake cleaner.

Group school projects. It never fails that out of a group of five at least one person never shows up, two others come and do a little work now and then, and you and the other guy end up working your tails off to get the project done in time... so the other people that don't do anything can get a good grade too.

Saying stupid things you regret to people you care about on a regular basis and then wondering why you don't have any friends.  :'(

I'm petty though, I'd ask to do my own separate project, if told no, I would just put in minimal effort too.

People who complain, then sit back and wait for
someone else to fix a problem. Then fuss because
they  didn't fix it right.

Seems to be a favorite pastimes of americans.  :P

What really grinds my gears is when some of my friends don't take me seriously when I politely ask them not to touch me. They think it's real humorous to touch me even more when I've told them when I don't like being touched! I already feel gross about myself and making fun of my personal boundaries isn't making it any better.

This is the worst, it's rude enough to expect others do everything for them but then having the audacity to complain about it being wrong is almost a whole new level of being obnoxious.  :o

THIS!


People who can't drive or don't pay enough attention to correctly do so. ONE WAY means ONE WAY. YIELD means wait for other vehicles to go by BEFORE you merge. You don't need to run a stop sign to get through the intersection first. You should be going faster than 30 mph when merging onto a highway. Tailgating me when I'm already doing 5-10 mph over the limit will not make me move faster. LANE CLOSED means move the hell over as soon as you can, not wait to the last minute and cut everyone else off. A turn lane is not a passing lane. OH MY ****ING GOD, GET OFF YOUR PHONE AND FOCUS ON THE ROAD!

EEEEEEERRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

*Deep breath*

Phew... got that out of my system...

I got you beat. There's been an "epidemic" of people driving the wrong way on highways and on/off ramps here in Milwaukee.  :o  >:(

People at work who tear a perfectly good donut in half, then eat one half, leaving the other. No one wants the other half because someone touched it. So the remaining half goes to waste.

As per the Big Car comment: I have actually seen overturned SUVs during icy weather. My theory being that the driver previously drove a low-profile compact with some pep as a student. Then once in a good-paying job and raising a family, bought a car with a higher center of gravity yet kept the same driving style.
