AMEN to that brother. I drive between Columbia and Georgetown for work, often early in the morning and it still happens. Drives me nuts, I of course get up on them with the brights on just so they know I'm there.

How about people who drive down a road, obviously looking for something, and they eventually just stop, glancing all around in their cluelessness. When they're elderly, I take a chill pill. I've no mercy on the young ones tho.

Here's one for ya. Occasionally I cruise around Craigslist looking for, well nothing in particular, but I almost always browse through the computer section to see if I can score any cheap systems that I can upgrade and gift or resell.

Anyways it is inevitable that some dimwit will have a listing kind of like this:

Quote:
Hp desktop. 2005. Windows XP. Includes wireless keyboard and mouse. $150
Actual Listing

Now let's look at that listing. First the guy lists a year. Newsflash for ya, buddy. computers are not cars. The year you bought it is irrelevant. This posting has almost nothing useful in it. No model, no HDD specs, no RAM, no video card model, no processor type.

Here is an example of a good posting:
Well done, sir.

Sure it isn't the most detailed post I've ever seen, but it is miles above the average. And he doesn't list the f**king year he bought it like he's proud or something.

Traffic lights that turn green. I was going to my grandparent's house on Christmas day, got gas at Piliot on Old Charleston Highway and was waiting to turn left onto I-77. It took 4 times before I got the green arrow.

The disproportionate amount of cashews in the Planters mix; it's a ridiculous ratio when compared to the amount of peanuts and almonds.

The I-126 outbound "exit to nowhere".


For those who don't know, when you are heading out I-126 and come up near Bush River Rd, there is an exit, which is CLEARLY marked as EXIT ONLY, to I-20 eastbound. Where the problem arises is that people don't heed this EXIT ONLY and try to merge left back into traffic at the I-20 ramp.

I get onto the Interstate off of Bush River Rd and these people drive me NUTS. They will block you and not let you in when you are trying to the correct thing and exit onto I-20.

Trains that stop in Columbia, especially when they just stop in the middle of the day. I would say 50% of the time the train just stops at the crossing and backs up traffic. I've waited 30 minutes stuck in traffic because of a stopped train at 5 in the afternoon.

And when slow drivers are in the left lane on the interstate. If somebody is faster than you get out of the way. It's awful when two 18 wheelers get beside each other going 55 mph.

When I go to any store that has shopping carts, and they r just left anywhere in the lot, instead of the corral they were intended to be put in. To me, if u r too lazy to take ur cart to the right place, u r the epitome of what is wrong with this country.
