Technical or other wise, tell us about some of your pet hates. Let's start ...

People who use Incredimail on business email.

People who reply to emails without attaching the original copy leaving me having to go through my files trying to remember why I contacted them in the first place.

lol. People who remain in the fast lane even when approached by a faster moving vehicle from behind. In some instances, passing on the right is not legal. How about moving over, allowing me to pass, and then you can get back over in the fast lane and create the flow of traffic. ;)

You see, here in Southern California there are diminishing time frames when you can actually enjoy the power of your automobile. We're used to passing each other here moving along at about 5-10 mph during normal business hours. ;)

Haha.

I should add - tailgating, at speed, when the traffic in front is going the same speed as yourself.

Unsolicited telephone sales call that respond to your initial "hello," with a, "Hi, how are you?"

Do they care?

Do they even listen when I go into a tirade about how my back aches and how that nasty contagious skin disease has flared up? ;)

The clown that told them to say "how are you" should also be shot.

Sales people who think they can talk "tech" jargon, sigh.

I hate the shop owner around the corner from my house that charges way to much for a bottle of vodka.

I also hate myself for buying that bottle of vodka because my legs tell me not to walk to the next one and I listen because my legs said so.

People who think it is a great idea to use background music on their website.

People who don't put subject lines in their emails.

People who drive in the middle lane of the motorway when they should move over into the left lane (in the UK).

People who reply to emails without attaching the original copy leaving me having to go through my files trying to remember why I contacted them in the first place.

People who attach the ENTIRE thread of the message to date, even though it may exceed 25 replies back and forth.

People who send "unsubscribe me" messages to the whole mailing list (and thus sending the message to all the subscribers).

Joe sends an e-mail to everyone in his contact list at once. John hits the "Reply All" button. John needs to be shot. Then Joe needs to be shot for having a friend like John.

People who send multi-recipient e-mail without using "BCC:" to prevent this problem as well as sending *my* e-mail address to all the other recipients... :)

Sorry, cyclist here, this may hurt...

Pedestrians who think that only cars are worth avoiding, and therefore walk straight in front of cyclists as if they weren't there. These people should be first against the wall.

Before anyone can interject - second on the list are cyclists who don't obey the road rules (and, by doing so, give motorists a reason to hate all cyclists).

Phew.

Ya'll are scaring me.

  • I've written rap (before we knew what to call it) - one band used to do a live version - modified for their show.

  • I'm a vegetarian - couldn't guess that these days, but I am.

  • I've made unsolicited phone calls.

  • I've been known to Re: re: re: emails.

  • I've tailgated.

  • And I still mispell words like definitely, and misspell, from time to time.

    Can I have a blindfold please?

    Those who use the word guesstimate.

    Unsolicited telephone sales call that respond to your initial "hello," with a, "Hi, how are you?"

    and then they add, when you turn down their offer, "you mean, you don't want to save money?"

    Well, certainly, I like to save money -but opening another credit line doesn't save me anything, now does it?

    That's usually not on their list of responses, now is it? ;)
