When perfectly mobile people take the elevator down one floor. Seriously?

And I'm another one with pedestrian rage. Hurry the hell up or get out the way!

Is the bolded a NYC thing? Because I can't stand it either. Especially when I worked in the Times Square building. Sweet mercy the tourists have no clue whatsoever, stroll along 4 and 5 people across, looking up at the tall buildings. It took all I had not to show them some of the infamous NY attitude.

They really need to give out a leaflet at the airport.

A pet peeve - when slow people drive in the left lane. But I consider that important, that's a rule.
I am laughing at jeepcurlygirl though-you said you would stop but then you added more later-you just had to get them out!!

Oh, and I hate it when people are shoveling the sidewalk and see you walking up and continue throwing snow across your path instead of waiting for you to pass by.

I hate it when people put any of their shi t in the road... your grass clippings, shoveled snow and raked leaves all belong on your own damned property, TYVM. Wet leaves and grass are a HAZARD to both pedestrians and vehicles. And it's freaking lazy. Turn your mower around for that pass and everyone will be happy.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
Stolen.
When our neighbors slam the front door to our apartment building. You have to turn the damn knob to shut it! It's an old door! They seem to think if they slam it hard enough, it'll close. But then it bounces back open, and the next person comes along and slams it hoping it will shut. It's a vicious cycle of supreme idiocy.

Now I know many many people do this, so don't get mad at me but - I can't stand watching people put chapstick on all dam day long. Over and over again. And when they talk while putting it on, it makes me want to grab it out of their hand and stomp on it.

I just came from the book thread so I have to say this...
I hate it if I loan a book to somebody and, when they return it to me, it looks like they poured water on it/folded the pages/cover/used it as a coaster or did anything to it to make it not be in the same condition I gave it to them in.

People who have the biggest pushchairs ever designed for their babies. Seriously, you do not need a pushchair the size of a small car to move your child around safely. And when they block shop aisles with them? Urgh! Even worse, they line them up and block entire footpaths. I'm sure you're very proud of your wombs production, but for the love of god move them when there are other people around.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

Women who cross their legs and then constantly wiggle the top leg/foot. These women are usually seen on tv shows like Jeremy Kyle and Ricki Lake. Just keep your damn leg still

Pens without their caps bug me.
In 2nd place: pens with their caps because they have the potential to go capless.

People who don't clean the snow from the car.

It's state law where I live to remove snow. If you drive an SUV, don't complain that you can't reach your roof. They make special tools for that you know.

It's the middle of the freaking night, people!!

Oh, and another thing that bugs me is when people start commenting (rudely or too personally) on my purchases while at the cash register. It's not like they are politely asking "Do you mind if I ask what aisle that's on?" Nooo, it's something like "Don't you think those towels are a little too bright?" Um, do I know you?
I have a friend who pulls his eyebrow hairs out. Drives me crazy! He has little bald patches in his eyebrows. His fiancee chews ice - she'll get a glass full of ice with just a little water, and chew the cubes up one at a time. Then she goes and gets another glass. Doesn't matter if we're talking, playing board games, or even watching a movie. Ugh!

Similar to what someone posted upthread, this ice-chewing friend also goes crazy over kids. She's absolutely obsessed with kids. Any kid will do. If there's a kid within earshot, she'll be talking to it. It worries me because many parents don't like random strange ladies talking to their kids, ya know? She also judges others' parenting skills/styles which, given that she's childless, she is in no position to do.

It doesn't matter if everything else in my basket is veggies and whole grains... if there's one carton of ice cream, she'll have something to say.

"Oh, I see we're eating healthy today!" Makes me want to claw her eyes out. B*tch, you're not my mother.

I do think it is more common in large cities, and I think people in the northeast tend to be crankier than most about it - I blame the cold weather.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
A few more:

My roommate gets takeout and he'll leave stupid little salt and pepper packets all over the place. Eventually I get fed up and throw them out. Of course, he never sees this. He is completely oblivious.

When he does the dishes, or when I do them, the dishes are left on the rack forever and ever by him. At one point he said he just doesn't know where to put them. Find a place, for God's sake! Pick one!

Yep it's against the law to have snow on your vehicle in PA. It's also against the law to drive in the left lane for more that a couple miles.

I wish it was against the law for retired people to be out and about at lunch. Really, you make me late for work while you stand there and look for 17 cents at the bottom of your purse and talk to the clerk about the weather. You get up at 4 in the morning. You have all dam day. Why do you all pick noon to venture out?

But there's really no excuse to walk slowly when it's cold out. COME ON dude, it's freezing out here!

It also bugs me when I'm stuck behind someone really tall who's just plodding along like a big lug. Really now- I'm 4' 10"... there's just no reason why you can't walk at least as fast as I do!
