Fortnite updates every 3 days. I suck, and my 1.5 year old son knows it. Usually it's routine that I'll play a round to conk him out while i hold him. Well, every other day it seems i have to go through the 30 min process to download, copy, install the update just so im able to play the stupid game. THEN he can sleep by watching my terrible play

Why doesn't the fruit/veggie marketers go to pull top lids on everything?  And while I'm bitchin', how about the potato chip makers use a ziplok top on their bags?  WTF?

There are about 150,000 YouTube videos of people reacting to The Spirit of Radio by Rush.  In at least 149,997 of them the reactors call it Spirit of the Radio.

That car length space in front of me is to prevent me from hitting the moron in front of me playing on his phone, it's not an invitation for you to squeeze your car in.

MFers who tap their brakes every time another car approaches from opposite lane, I usually end up flashing my lights at them if they continue.  Also the brake tappers from the fucks who don't know how not to tailgate and let off the gas, flash at them as well.

MFers who tap their brakes at every intersection whether there is a car coming that way or not and whether they have the right of way or not.

Not trivial, but MFers who run stop signs.  Twice in the last week I've had assholes run stop signs and had I been less alert I would have been seriously injured in the first instance and my car would have been totaled in the second.  The first guy just didn't see the stop sign and blew through it going around 40.  The second guy saw me coming, just ran the stop sign (I didn't have a stop sign) and just assumed I would jam my brakes and not hit him.  Sometimes it's wise to slowdown/tap brakes at intersections because of assholes.

I watch every intersection I come to for the most part now because of that very reason. So I'm one of those MF'ers who tap their brakes at intersections, green light or not. If you're not riding my ass it shouldn't be an issue (cause I won't be driving slow in the fast lane anyway).

You should be able to assess the situation upcoming at the intersection without braking unless you drive too fast or unless your brain works too slowly.

You should be behind me far enough (at all times ) that me tapping my brakes doesn't put you up my ass.

100%.  I really don’t understand this but it seems like they speed up when the passing zone/lane starts.

I'm far enough away that I can carefully judge you as a bad driver.

I live in the stoplight running capital of the world. Literally every time I go anywhere I see someone run a red light at practically every intersection I have to stop at.  To top it off last week I saw someone turn right on a red right in front of an ambulance with its lights and sirens going.  Also you are just as much of an asshole if you run a red light on your stupid bicycle as you are if you run a red light in your car.

Turning left on red when it is obvious no cars are coming from the opposite direction is the only acceptable red light to run.  In fact, there should be no left turn reds, only flashing yellows.

An old George Carlin bit:

2 guys driving in a car. The driver runs a red light.

Passenger: Screams what the hell are you doing ??!!

Driver: Relax. my brother does this all the time.

 

They come to another red light, and the driver blows thru it.

Passenger:  What the hell are you doing, that was another red light !!

Driver:  Relax, my brother does this all the time.

 

Another red light, and the driver blows right thru.

Passenger:  God dammmit cut that out !

Driver:  Relax, my brother does this all the time.

 

They come to a green light, and the driver screeches to a halt.

Passenger:  What are you doing, why'd you stop, that's a green light ??!!

Driver:  Are you kidding, my brother might be coming the other way.

People who are afraid to drive the speed limit when a DPS trooper is near and going 5-6 mph under said limit.

Yes.  Also when they see a Leo they automatically put on their brakes, like the cop hasn't already tagged your speeding ass before you even saw him/her.

Espressos are feminine now?  That's a new one. 

 

I can't tell what's cool anymore.  Gulping a jug of diner-drip Folgers from a Coleman thermos?

It's 2019 and car rental.companies can't implement an inventory tracking system, so when you book a car, it's "VW Golf or similar", and 90% of the time, it's not a golf, and 70% of the time, it ain't even similar.

Two times I've been in wrecks (neither were my fault) and needed a rental car. I've explained several times that I have to have am SUV for work. Neither time have I actually gotten an SUV....

People who sit in their running cars in busy parking areas. I'm holding up traffic waiting for you to back up and leave because that's clearly what's going on and you're just fucking sitting there for more than a fucking minute. Not only have I held up traffic but now I've missed out on your spot. Fuck you. What the fuck are you doing anyway?

CSB once in Manchester NH, the rental car guy says "hey you want a free upgrade to a 4wd?"  Of course I'm thinking SUV like Explorer, Tahoe, even 4Runner, etc, certainly more enjoyable than generic mid size sedan.  I say "sure" he gives me the keys, tells me the space, I walk out and it's a...Subaru.  Whatever the little Subaru wagon is.  Bastid.

I got the last laugh though, the first snow of the winter happened that night and I had to drive down to Boston, which is normally a straight shot down I93 less than an hour.  Subaru behaved like a champ, bypassing folks pulled over under bridges, packed up at exits, etc.

People who sit in parking spaces with their cars in reverse but aren't actually backing up or even intending to back up any time soon.  Hey dumbass, you know those white lights on the back of your car that come on when your car is in reverse?  You're telling people you're about to back up.
