Sitting here reading throughout some of the posts, I stumbled across a couple of my pet peeves that irritate me to no end. How trivial they might be, I agree - THEY ARE TRIVIAL SO DONT DO THEM ANYMORE!!!

At any rate (and no - this post is not directed at anyone specifically, just everyone generally if you are guilty)

A couple that I can think of off the top of my head...

"I know how you feel" - Usually this is done in a sympathetic fashion when showing condolances to someone who has either suffered a loss of some sorts, or their situation is not good. While I appreciate the empathy - YOU DONT KNOW HOW I FEEL!! In fact, you have no ****ing clue as to how I feel and what I am dealing with here. You may know how YOU feel (or felt) but in no way shape or form do you know how I feel.
-Better response would be 'Wow, I can totally relate' keep it simple and about me damn it. Let ME feel how I FEEL. You can feel similar but its definitely not how I feel.

"Can I ask you a question?" - I think that this one bothers me on more of a daily basis than anything. 'Can I ask you a question?' Well guess what? You just did! And guess what else? I dont want to answer any more questions now!
Just get to the point and ask what you want to ask. Dont feel me out before you make the daring move to inquire about something from me. Just pull the trigger and ASK damn it! Whats the worst that I am going to say?
No? Hell No? I dont know?

Im sure there are more that are going to come to my brain when I least expect it, but I thought I would try to arouse a discussion regarding this. Not only to vent, but possibly learn a couple more things I may be guilty of that can be easily corrected.

Im still not lifting the toilet seat though...

People that block the entire isle in the supermarket and pretend they don't see you when you are standing there trying to get by. On top of that, they look at you like you have 3 heads when you say "Excuse me."

People who don't understand the concept of merging onto the freeway.

1. Get up to speed. You should be going the same speed as everyone in the right lane of the freeway BEFORE you hit the end of your onramp.

2. Find a hole. No, it's not my job to speed up or slow down so you can merge into the space I'm currently occupying. There's a hundred feet of open space you can take in front of my car or behind it.

3. Try looking to your left at least once or twice. Don't just drive to the end of your onramp and hope nobody is in the way.

People who back up using only the rear view mirror. Its a good way to hit somebody.

(Now I'm thinking in a car w/o a trailer or blocked view)

- People who say "we" when referring to their favorite teams. If you're not playing, you're not part of the team.
- Doors that are closed on an empty bathroom.
- Finding my wife's cross stitch needles everywhere, usually in my rear after I sit in the recliner.
- People who don't say "thank you." Alternately, people who say "yup" when I thank them.
- Misuse of the English language.

You'll love me, then. As a Bostonian, I've never pronounced an R.
