    My new Covid pet peeve is everyone posting shit on social media and making sure they note the “social distancing” when, in fact, they are not. Also the “stay at home” warriors who are constantly posting about their not at home activities.

    I always knock at work and yeah I am anticipating a response. I work retail and our bathrooms used to be single use men and women. The amount of fuckers who don’t lock the bathroom door is a real problem. These men were ALWAYS taking a shit too. I think some people squeezed their ass cheeks together just to use our bathroom. We are near a bus stop so that doesn’t help. Just the absolute worst bathroom of all time.

    Now we turned one into customers and one into employees. So now I knock and get no answer yet still get to walk on the old lady that works in the front of the store.

    If I knock and you don’t say anything you better fucking have the door locked you animal.

    This is a minor one but I hate when people do not thank me after I open the door for them, same with when I let someone get out of a bad spot while driving, or when we both get at the stop at the same time and I waive them to go ahead. Not waiving back is fucking rude

    People who don’t understand which vehicle has right of way at a 4-way stop and frantically wave me on rather than proceed to make their fucking left hand turn. You were at the intersection first dipshit, it only matters that I’m going straight and you are turning if we arrive at the stop sign together.

    Places now have wait until the end to merge signs and people still won’t zipper even if their life depended on it.

    But that’s not the type of driver you are. When everyone is waiting in line to get off the exit for a mile, you’re the guy who drives all the way to the exit and jumps in front over the white line missing the crash water cans by inches and then thinking you’re the smartest most important person and the rest are just sheep…while wearing a Trump Maga hat.

    I guess this works, but something about movies that annoys me is when cannon balls explode as if they were bombs. Unless I'm missing something, they didn't/couldn't explode like this.

    Whenever someone emails our IT-group with a request and uses “Team”. First of all we’re not on a team. Second, if we are you aren’t on the team you’re the opponent. 95% of the time whatever you’re emailing about was probably blocked to keep the company secure or because it’s something you’ll fuck up beyond repair and then blame us for not fixing. Or we just don’t like you. Take your team and shove it up your ass.
