People who stay in the left lane on the freeway. Itís for passing only and itís not for cruising 10mph under the speed limit. Itís particularly horrendous here in California. Anywhere else they follow that law well.

It seems that EVERY TIME I need to use a port-a-john, the previous visitor has left the seat up!

People who adopt a dog from shelter, only to bring it back in 1 week because of trivial things.  Work with the animal,  it's not a stuffed animal.  It takes time for it to adjust to "home"

It seems that whenever I visit a certain local thrift store, I must dodge several staff people while browsing the aisles.

Just got a really rotten email from a member of a furry forum I haven't been on in a year or more. Contacted a mod and let them know about it. Turned off all the notifications from that site. Then just for fun I changed my avatar  to a blank box and changed my user name. Then blocked them from my personal email accounts. It's been over a year and I'm still getting drama??? Actually it's kinda funny. Hide in a hole. Wait till the coast is clear. Then bust out of the ground screaming and shaking a fist at me. Drama queens. They'll hit you when you least expect it. :)
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

You ever have those times when just as you exit a store, there's some vagrant lurking around who begs/panhandles for money or something else? It's almost like a vulture hanging around waiting for the next corpse.  :P I had just such an incident today while exiting a Walgreens store. These kinds of people know you're inside shopping. They know you've got money. So they scan the place, wait outside, and ask anybody who comes out for spare change or whatever else. If people need money, then get a job!  >:(

What grinds my gears are Magellan GPS products.  They are junk.  Iv'e had 2.
I wanted to connect one to my PC to get NMEA sentences and do stuff, and voila, no dice.  I paid, like $500 for this slow, clunky, junky trash!
OMG!

Is it too much to ask that people stop believing in the phrase "Well, if it's on the Internet, it must be true!".

Probably not. That would be like asking for a miracle.  :P

Do people not know how to read a book anymore, ask questions, or double or even triple check information and facts before blindly believing in something?

I guess so.

When you go to a store and sales people keep harassing you.What they don't realize is that by doing that, they are actually encouraging me to leave sooner then I might of as I don't want to deal with that BS.

Ordering something on internet and funding out it is junk and doesn't even look like what you bought!

My local post office needs to be done away with.
This is about the 6th time I have had things which were due to arrive at my post office, never show up.  This was a bill.  It is not overdue, and I had to pay the overdue charges.  I also never received my car insurance statement there either.  But luckily I was able to get online and on the phone with an insurance agent to arrange for it to be paid on the phone before I lost my car insurance in 4 days!

I have lost artwork which was commissioned
A video game never arrived
Bank statements lost
bills (2) never arrived
Packages damaged (2)
And I expect more, IF I keep using them..

Thing is, my previous post office was PERFECT and I could totally rely on them for whatever I needed.

So, if YOU send me anything, make sure it is insured, with a tracking number, sign on delivery, and has a GPS locator in it so we together can put the screws to the employee(s) in my local USPS who is apparently stealing peoples stuff!

This town. 
This backwards town I live in grinds my gears.

Why, why try to pass a large semi truck and trailer on left lane, yet all you do is hang there at same speed as semi truck? For 35 miles  with dozens of cars backing up behind you, and you wasted people's only chance of passing. Then the semi truck slows down from 50 to 30. In a 65mph zone.
All they had to do was pass the semi and we all would be free to drive 65.
If they couldn't pass, stay behind truck and let people pass!
This is not rocket science!!

I see this often. The novice driver passes the semi and gets surprised by the noise and turbulence as they enter the wake of the larger vehicle. "Oh Noes! I Scared!"

FedEx set my package in the snow where run-off from the roof started to soak into the cardboard carton today. Fortunately, the contents were in plastic wrapping, and I came directly home from work.

Neighbors "beep-locking" their cars throughout the day, and into the night hours. There was one time I thought the kid across the street was having a seizure. This is a rural neighborhood btw.

Black Friday shoppers who think it is their right to push people around because they were at the store at 3am this morning. This is one reason why you will not see me shopping today

Dodging piles of pre-owned smokeless tobacco in public spaces. It's like someone pooped out of their mouth. I thought "snuff-dipping" and "chaw" went out with singing cowboy music.
