    What are some things, no matter how small and insignificant, that really make your blood boil? Allow me to list mine, in no particular order.

    1. Leaving the house, getting to my desitination, and realizing that I've forgotten something that I will need.

    2. People who enter a major highway travelling 30 MPH.

    3. Being accused of lying when I'm not actually lying.

    4. Sitting down to enjoy a meal then spilling something and having to get back up and clean up the mess.

    5. Laying down on the couch to watch some TV and, the moment I lay down, getting called into another room to help with something.

    6. People who update their Facebook 646431676467645 times a day about everything that's going on in their lives.

    7. When people get into a heated argument and then pretend like they're best friends and that nothing happened a few minutes afterward.

    8. Musclehead homos who grunt, scream, throw their weights down on the floor, and generally do their best to draw attention to themselves in the gym.

    9. People who get really into pick up games of touch football, basketball, and whatever other sport and actually start shouting a their teammates when said teammate messes up. Where is the fun in that?

    I'm sure I can think of more later.

    Red lights and stop signs when i get them :mad: They should be banned

    Left lane SLOW drivers.

    I also have to go with #8 on your list, the gym screamers. One time i heard someone yelling and ran over because i thought they got hurt. I have to say that the last couple of gyms i've belong to have thrown people out that drop wgt.s on the floor.

    Upon further review you have a Great list.

    I try not to get too upset with other people's failings (not that I always succeed, but, you know ...) but spelling and grammar are always good for a few blood-pressure points.

    1. People who write about "lynchpins".

    A lynchpin is a pin placed at the end of an axle to stop the wheel falling off. What on earth did you THINK it was? Something to do with lynching? Oh, please!

    2. And as for those who write about "towing the party line" ...

    I agree with many of the above, so I'll add a couple more rather than repeat.

    1. Passive-aggressive behavior, especially when it comes to something someone wants done. Just ask dammit!

    2. When people feel the need to park their car across two parking spaces.

    3. Those stupid truck-testicles that people put on their tow hitch.

    4. Guests who ask for special arrangements to be made to accommodate them and then don't show up.

    5. People who call magazines, "clips".

    6. Drivers who have to cut in front of you but then proceed to go 5-10 under the speed limit.

    People who speed up when you try to pass them on the highway.

    Car commercials where the announcer screams at you like your deaf or something.

    Meaningless and mind numbing reality shows...we get it already!!

    People who changes lanes without using a turn signal.....

    Rush hour traffic.....

    So many good ones already...
    A huge pet peeve of mine is when people use your instead of you're or mix up there/their/they're, or pretty much any other homophone mixup.
    I'm not saying I've got perfect spelling or grammar, far from it, but when I see professional businessmen, military leaders, or other people in authority typing like a 12 year old girl texting her boyfriend, it makes me want to throw things and suck start my m4.

    I don't believe you.

    Perhaps you have a commanding presence. Or, do you look like Bruce Springsteen?
