What Sets You Off?
Do you have a breaking point? When was the last time you totally lost it? What happened?
With me, it was a cab driver last week. He was behind me honking as I was in the far right lane trying to find a parking spot. Each time I slowed down, he'd move closer and honk, even though the other lanes were free. Finally, I found a spot and he pulled up to my bumper but wouldn't let me back in. I lost it, jumped out of my car, went over to his window and put on my best Brooklyn accent. "What the f**** d'ya think you're doing a********?!!" "You didn't turn on your blinker," he said. I said a few more choice words, got back in my car, and he finally went around me, calling me a "muzzahfocker" as he went.

Did you not have your blinker on ,OP? If not, the cabbie had a valid point. Non blinker using drivers set me off.

I don't get mad in traffic because I do not want to go off on someone for a traffic infraction and then have the crazy motherfucker shoot me.
I know I will eventually die but I choose not to die in my car or beside it because I couldn't handle someone not using their blinker.
No, I have two sisters-in-law whose horseshit I have abided for years and years who will be eviscerated by my tongue the next time either says something I don't like.
If my brothers cannot or will not control their wives, then I have resolved to not let either one say one more unkind, heartless, unfeeling, ignorant thing to me.
I am fully prepared never to see either again once I am done.

non blinker, or non signaling makes me LIVID! So disrespectful and myopic.

Although you sound like a bit of a pig, R2, with your "controlling their wives" nonsense, think about your relationship with your brothers. I have one sibling, a brother, and although we've never been really close, we've both worked to stay in touch. I dislike his wife pretty intensely, but consider my relationship with him important enough that, when I've had to deal with her on occasion, I just resolve to get through it, thinking of the bigger picture.
You may think today that you are willing to never see your brothers again, but you may regret it. Look for things that you can do with them without their spouses if you live in the same area. I don't live that close to my brother and typically we talk on the phone. It lets me keep up with him and avoid his wife.

You take all the air out a room and all the fun out of living, R4.
I won't lose my brothers. You do not know my family dynamic.
Thanks for playing, but most kindly and assuredly fuck off.

My brother-in-law's mother had a swanky wake and funeral service. On the day of the funeral we followed the hearse to the mausoleum vault where she was placed inside. Raised on a hydraulic lift, slid into the wall and then sealed. As this was going on, I started computing the cost. I was then told the mausoleum plot alone cost eighty-two thousand dollars. This woman never helped her kids with college expenses and left them no money in her will (she claimed to never have money). She left them with a house filled with useless junk they would have to clean. I went off as we were driving away, saying they could visit her final resting place if they ever wanted to view their inheritance.

R2/R5 just sounds unpleasant.

r7 sounds like a bitter old scold.
Probably sex-negative, too.

I was driving on 5th Ave. in NYC with no traffic on a Saturday morning. It's 6 lanes wide. This cabdriver had followed me down Fifth just tailgating. He had it in for me and he got what he either wanted or deserved.

I'm with the cabbie here: you should have turned your blinkers on before you even began to park.

That buzzword is never happening, cunt. Your sisters-in-law hate you because you're clearly a histrionic bitch.

From one city driver to another, if there is no other traffic on very wide street, and I see a lone car hugging the left lane, obviously looking for a parking space, the last thing I would do is get in back of him and start tailgating him. So much easier to just go around. BTW, the signal was on at first, which seemed to infuriate him even more as he started honking. That mozzafockah got what he deserved.

Stop pretending I care what you think, r12!

You posted some long boring post about your family, R14. You're all about what other people think.

Not too many things set me off anymore. I did lip off loudly and publicly to the clerk at the pharmacy this week. She was dismissive, did not want to explain an order they filled incorrectly or bother to deal with me.

Same here: people taking chances in traffic as if they were home playing Xbox. The freeways are not a video game.

Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly the top-rated hotel/casino for customer service. What would you do if the following happened to you?
Attending an event at Bellagio hotel/casino, I needed to use the Women's Restroom. In the middle of using the toilet, I saw a huge flood of DARK BROWN FECES flooding my stall from the one next to it. My brand new Satin high heels and large cloth bag were immediately covered in the filth. I finished as quickly as possible and went to the bathroom sink. The smell was horrific. I told the housekeeper what had happened. She yelled at me in front of the other patrons that I should have inspected the stall before using it. She didn't care that the flood of shit happened after I was using the toilet. She ignored my request for help in cleaning my shoes and cloth bag. I had to stand in my stocking feet on the restroom floor, and clean someone else's feces off of my things. I had no choice but to wear the shoes out of the restroom, and carry the cloth bag. I then called for a shift manager. After a long wait, he finally showed up. His response? He didn't see the incident so there was nothing that he could do to help me.
I would be happy to take a lie detector test to prove that what I'm saying is 100% true and accurate.

R20, I'm perfectly willing to believe you! Bet both the attendant and manager were goddamn fucking S---s, weren't they?

Lawyers who can't think their way out of a paper bag. The drive me wild, considering they are paid big bucks for something they can't even do.

This is going to sound REALLY lame but ...
The last time I went off at a complete stranger was a str8 white couple who were going on about how Chang Kai Shek "stole" all that artwork that got taken to Taiwan. I pointed out that (most) Taiwanese are ethnically Chinese too, and it's THEIR history as much as the damned Mainlanders', not equivalent to the looting of the Elgin Marbles or something! For good measure, I asked whether they thought it would've been better had the Red Guards gotten hold of the stuff?

Francis Cardinal George. This no good pig just radiates hate and violence, and nobody says anything. It's like they made Tony Spilotro head of the Catholic church in the US (which he has been in the past). When he comes on t.v. I have to change the channel.
