    What characteristic of a person causes you to immediately form an opinion about their entire personality?

    I'll start:
    • Being rude to waiters/service workers
    • Goatees (except for bertwing )

    - Any Aggie apparel
    - Not putting a shopping cart back where it belongs.
    - Bald men that haven’t buzzed their heads already. Sometimes it’s ok to just give up.
    -People in the back of an airplane that stand up first and try to leave.

    It’s always the person that has to be asked multiple times by the flight attendant to put their chair, tray and cell phone away. I assume those people don’t put their shopping carts back or use turn signals.

    I've mellowed out over the years but I used to be really bad about judging people based on

    - the aforementioned teams you root for
    - The music you listen to
    - the movies/TV shows you like

    I don't care about any of that stuff anymore except for people who enjoy the Big Bang Theory...fuck them

    oh...I still totally judge everybody that operates a motor vehicle that I'm not in

    guy doesn't pull into an intersection while waiting to turn left = prick
    girl who doesn't use a turn signal = fucking bitch
    guy who goes a mile or 3 under the speed limit = fucking asshole

    I'm really really bad about this

    the weird thing is, it's only when I drive home from work. No matter what kind of day I have at work, I firmly believe the Adjustment Bureau likes fucking with me on my daily commute home. Like "oh Celemo is on his way home? lets put a car that will pull out in front of him and go 9 miles under the speed limit right here...just to see how he'll react. My money is on Celemo calling him a fucking asshole...he always does that lol"
