99% of my lifetime I'm too sweet to let anyone get to me....but when something does...well then you better get going duck&cover....

Really there's only 2 things that really get me going well:
1) Our beloved "Veterans" systems - Which I will not describe what I think about it and its "procedures" cause the forum filter would make my text look like this #%^^@*&^(!&)%#**#**$&^(!)
2) Slow and or unreasonably stupid drivers.... I indeed have a hard time at a red light to remain IN my Jeep and NOT step out and ask the person in front of me are you serious!?
3) Have a serious unlawful problem at the house and calling just to wind up with a endless COMPUTER system when in fact I REALLY need to talk to a PERSON in charge

Apart from that Mean Henry....Just drive on up the the shooting range @ Garden of the Gods, spent ever other weekend practicing....it does relive stress believe me....(PS yu can also get your "favorite" person printed on poster size target at the copy shop...just saying...)

I guess we all seem to agree on the bad drivers. NYC taxes (I also do not want to be supporting most people on welfare, most of them dont deserve it or truly need it). Arrogant and stubborn people.
I mean... Anything can flip someones switch given the right opportunity though.

Hmmm, all of the above and cats that wait till you clean the litterbox and THEN decide theyre not done yet. Dirty filters on my aquarium, Tuna casserole, The guy catching fish right next to me in the boat using same bait, and last but not least,, So called Young Country music.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

That's my biggest peeve I forgot. Bad drivers. I put on more miles than most people. I got my newest car in February of 09'. I've put 20000+ miles on it. I drive a lot.

Rude people. Parents who don't make their kids behave. Senior adults who act like teenagers. Kids that don't have any manners. People who think that rules don't pertain to them and they get away with doing whatever they want.People who think they are high class. Homeowners' association board members who don't follow the bylaws. People who don't clean up after their dog after the dog imparts it's by-products on my lawn. People who block the steps of the pool with their raft so I have to ask them to move so I can get in. If I can think of anything else, I'll post them later! lol
People who talk while I'm talking.

People and how they drive. People in general. Not all but most. I think it's the change in society. Uppity types and their freakin' over priced foo foo coffee drinking, poetry reading in the coffee shop as if anyone cares, high class thinking ways of life with no regard to anyone but themselves.

Christmas erks me. Who the heck wants to shop at 4am the day after Thanksgiving? And people running people over to get some cheap, made in China piece of crap gizmo. That gets my goat.

America haters get my goat.
Then you would HATE where I live. You could almost be describing the micro-culture of my locale. (I live near San Fransisco, CA). I strongly suggest you never visit here because I think you might have an anxiety attack.

Stephanie I refuse to go to California for that reason. I know not all people are this way but I'm sorry. (grumble) In fact I can't even go there. I'll write a wall of text and get myself in to hot water lol. I like you though. You're kind and obviously very intelligent. Even if you do foo foo coffee lol. Not that you do, just saying. I'd forgive you.

@ Angel. I knew you were like the way you described yourself. I just knew it. I was thinking today. Driving gives lots of time to think. I was thinking that I bet you are really sweet and nice but if she gets mad she is a stick of dynamite in a fire cracker sized package. I swear I have some kind of mental telepathy at times.
