    I did learn a trick awhile back. When in a store that's busy I often find a couple or family walking towards me taking up most of the isle.
    They are oblivious that I'm in their path and we will crash. A bumpy road ahead.
    I found that a ways before we crash, I will turn my head as if looking at something and they will subconsciously move out of my way. Works most every time.
    Saves me grief.

    If you really want to mess with people...point at an imaginary spot on the floor and loudly exclaim "don't step in that!" gets em every time.

    One of my pet peeves happened today at the grocery store, I had three items to purchase so I went to the clearly marked, 15 items or less, express line. And some idiot had about 40 items stacked on the conveyor. These people were talking in English so I loudly said "apparently these idiots can't read English!" They just looked away. Seems like a common occurrence here.

    That might have been me, but ten bags of chips, four cases of beer, five bags cheese puffs, and six bags of pretzels is only four items.

    Ok here it is....
    1. Aim high in steering
    2. Get the big picture
    3. Keep your eyes moving
    4. Leave yourself an out
    5. Make sure they see you

    If Smith System was mandatory for all drivers, with a refresher every two years, the number of accidents would be cut by minimum 75%
    Hmmm...... Back when I first learned to drive (back when they first put motors on flintstone mobiles) We were taught to leave 1/2 to 3/4 car length between you & the car in front. The logic being if some mouth breather rear ends you only your rear end gets damaged. Used to laugh at that, but it's proved true for me twice!

    That brings up another pet peeve of mine! As Gallagher said "Pull out! Three cars go on the yellow! Three cars!" The idiots that pull their front wheels over the line and sit. By the time they look up from their phones and scoot, you're stuck sitting through another phase.........

    And the old fart who rests his foot on the brake pedal! You can't tell if he's going to slam on the brakes or if he's saying the guy next to me is kidnapping me in morse code.......

    That's only 25 items, what did you do with the other 15?? LOL........

    I do agree though, if I have 5 of the same thing that only counts as 1?

    Also, sometimes the cashiers are slow and will call you into their line even though you are over the suggested limit. It happens to me quite often.
    Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

    My Wife is my pet peeve when we go "out" for breakfast!! She loves to read the menu from front to back and then orders the same thing she always gets!! Only thing is, half the restaurant is filled up and my breakfast is hours away!! Is this just a "woman thing"??

    My wife is like that too, also picks at her food 10% of the time and talks the other 90%. Meanwhile I eat at 90mph and want to leave as soon as I'm done. She hates that.

    One of my pet peeves is when a good thread is ruined by politics.
