Why oh why, when I park my car at the outer ends of a parking lot, with no cars there, and get a little exercise walking to a place, when I come back, my car is surrounded by 3 or 4 cars? Do these other people think my car looks lonely?

Walk slowly and diagonally down busy sidewalks, usually zombified because of fiddling with their smartphones.

Leave their apartment buildings and immediately whip out aforementioned smartphones and begin the aforementioned zig-zag zombie stroll. Bitch, you JUST left your place--could you not have taken care of this when you were there?

Drivers who absolutely MUST make that turn when I'm crossing the street, inching ever forward until they are almost touching me, impatient, intimidating, insufferable. On many occasions I have hollered, "You HAVE A CAR! You will GET THERE!"

Ride their bikes on the sidewalk and expect me to move out of their way. Sometimes in the wrong direction. Many times, when there is a bike lane right there on the street.

Scheduling services at poor times. Our building’s management schedules the custodial team to mop the lobby floors between 8 and 9 AM, just as everyone leaves for work. The elevator door opens each morning, and we shuffle across wet floors all apologetically. It’s odd because our building is probably the nicest in the whole state. I feel so bad for the cleaners.

Not observing rights of way and slowing down traffic to wave drivers in front of them, with disregard for those who know and observe traffic laws. Also driving in NYC as you might in a small town, blocking intersections, drifting between lanes, things like that.

I also hate people who are deliberately tenuous and slow, unaware of others. Unless you cannot help it, you should step out of others’ way. Especially if you’re fiddling with your bootleg smartphone on the sidewalk, or face-timing a friend “yes, I can talk, I’m just heading across 42nd street...no, it’s ok.. no one needs to get past me to catch their train or get to work...”

There are also guys with a masculinity complex that have to stop walking down the escalator when there is no one in front of them because they know that someone else behind them wants to get to the bottom but they need to, for some reason, assert themselves as a man and hold firm for no reason other than to get in the way, even though they have also been walking down the escalator themselves prior to noticing someone behind them.

Speaking of riding bikes.....I ride my bike everyday. Where I live there are bike lanes everywhere. I use these bike lanes and used to ride with the flow of traffic. After a couple of close calls, I decided to ride against traffic. Using your cell phone while driving is legal in my state. Now I get to see these distracted drivers coming right at me while on their phones talking and texting. So...I’ve got to stop my bike and get on the sidewalk so I’m not hit. Get off your damn phones if you can’t do two things at once! And while I’m at it, there are shared sidewalks/bike lanes on certain parts of my ride. So what happens? People walking their dogs stand right in the middle of the sidewalks fawning over each other’s dog. I have to stop my bike so that no one gets hurt. Which in my case I’m only thinking about my safety. I could give a flying **** about your Lhasa asshole. Get off the sidewalks and stand on the grass.

Actually, rain doesn’t do a very good job cleaning a car. If you need a car wash and it starts raining, you’re still going to the car wash tomorrow.

When people decide that women (it’s always women in these stories) cheating the welfare system means that we shouldn’t have welfare at all. There are always people who will try to get away with whatever they can, whether it’s slacking off at work or getting out of paying their taxes. The fact that nobody has figured out how to make welfare uniquely fraud-proof doesn’t mean everybody else should starve. I wish these people who get so outraged had to hear everybody’s story, and not just the attention-getting ones that upset them so much.
