    Thought this would be interesting to do. Think we did this before, but who cares.

    1) People who drive slow in the fast lane.

    2) People who think five over the limit is too slow.

    3) People who drive like maniacs cutting everybody off.

    4) Crotch rockets who's owners drive like maniacs.

    5) Certain box stores that shall remain nameless that close most of their checkout lanes at 5:30pm making you wait forever.

    6) Doctors that don't listen to you.

    7) Pharmacies that lie about when your scirpts will be ready.

    Hospitals that don't truly listen to your symptoms.

    9) People who think that just because you're bipolar or any other mental illness that you're completely and totally off your rocker all the time.

    10) Medicine with crazy side effects.

    11) Family who doesn't understand the way you act sometimes. Or why you act that way.

    12) Friends who quit being your friend because of the disease.

    13) Employers who just don't understand. (nuff said)

    2. Indecisive ppl

    3. Kids who dont respect their elders.

    4. The cupboard doors being left open.

    5. Being on the phone with someone, and they talk to others in the room grrrrrrrrrr my bro does that to me and ticks me off!

    6. All this flipping rude texting ie in line at stores when they should be paying attention, at your house for a short visit but stay on the text the whole time etc etc

    7. Lack of common sense.

    8. Wasting water or hydro.
    jselleck replied to CanadianDyanne's response:
    Yes Dyanne, Matt does all the driving. For the past 3 years. I lost my privileges after I totaled our second Taurus and the insurance rates got too high. May get them back this summer. We're waiting on his inheritance from his grandmother's estate and hope to buy a second vehicle. ( One with a back seat so groceries don't get piled on me all the time!!!) When that happens he's agreed to reconsider letting me drive the truck and only the truck. Along with other limits of course. What can I say?? I have road rage along with bipolar. Or at least had road rage. The few times I've gotten to drive since totaling last car I've done much better. But then he was in the car with me and watched me like a hawk. So we'll see how I do on my own.

    TheLetterKaye replied to jselleck's response:
    I totally feel you on all those car annoyances. 90% of the people on the road appear to be rude idiots. Driving always leaves me tensed up and sometimes cussing and fuming. (I'm much like my father in this way. I never understood until I got behind the wheel myself lol. )

    I don't let it affect my driving though. I'm actually a pretty safe driver for my age. Although I learned just last night that Mania The Offspring driving = bad combination. Was so caught up in the music I didn't even realize I was going 60 down a 35 lol. It was at 11 at night though and nobody was on the road so everything was fine

    1. parents who let their children run around the stores like animals.

    2. Little kids who scream over and over again in stores. " AH...AH...AH...AH"

    3. Kids to throw themselves on the ground at stores and yell "I WANT IT!!!!!!! GIVE IT TO ME!!!!NO NO NO NO!!"

    4. Idiots who ride on my bumper. I happen to have a cure for that.

    5. When I park my Mustang way out in the middle of B.F.E and when I come out of the store, some P.O.S. car is parked right next to mine.

    6. My chronic pain totally ticks me off.

    7. Men who stare at women. Even if the woman catches him staring, he still continues.

    8. Men who yell "OWE!!! OH BABY!...." uuuggghh

    9. How Obama is going to give illegal aliens a green card. What about the ppl who had to get a special Visa from their country (which is very difficult and time consuming), then when they get here they have to WAIT to get a Green Card, they have to pay for it every single year. What about those ppl?

    10. Medication that doesn't work

    11. Medical ins. that costs far too much.

    margaroo replied to snowyowl33's response: this.

    What bugs me the most is a mom in a store chatting away on the phone and is ignoring the child in the cart. This is such an important time for the child to learn from their parents. I may be showing my age, but I feel that the instant gratification in constant usage of cell phone must be damaging our relationships.

    Just like all of you, other drivers make me nuts. Just today I was almost my car was pushed out of my lane on the freeway, was almost sideswiped by a car racing up my narrow hill, and I was the only one who pulled to the right side of the road when an emergency vehicle was heard. This was at a busy intersection and the cross traffic didn't stop until the emergency truck came up to the intersection and had to lay on the horn.

    Oh there are a few more things, but my blood pressure is starting to rise.
