Nice try Craig!
So, I`ve been thinking about this more and more and I think you hit the nail on the head. What most of everyone`s frustrations with the american public seems to be is lack of manners. How did this happen? What is wrong with people?
Also, maybe it boils down to Stupidity or Ignorance. As my husband keeps telling me, there is a difference. (Craig, this one is for you, what is the difference?). . .LOL. I know you`ll have a good explanation here. Or maybe just commen sense and peoples lack of using it that I find so frustrating.
OMG-another pet peeve. I should never had started this thread, I`m finding I have way to many of them. . .Maybe I just try to think ahead to much and expect others to also. For instance, every single morning I stop at the local post office to check my PO box. The PO is not open yet, but, anyone that pays attention would know that it can be a busy little place in the morning. It is kind of a congested area, just after the main intersection in town and just before the corner of the cross street that leads to the local high school. We have over 2000 kids in our high school, so not a small school!
Anyway, there are 3 parallel parking spots on the street. Every morning, If no one else is there, I pull forward to the first spot, leaving 2 for others to pull into behind me. It is not the closest to the mail boxes or the door, but this way, anyone else wanting to park can easily pull up behind me. It is horrible when someone pulls up and parks in the third spot and you have to get around them and into one of the spots in front of them. I can`t tell you how many times there is no one parked in any of the spots and the car in front of me pulls up and stops in the last spot and there I am sitting behind them, stuck, not able to get back out to get around them. Are they IDIOTS? Why wouldn`t you see there are 2 more empty spots in front of you and someone behind you wanting to pull up, geez, pull up another spot. . .I JUST DON`T GET IT!
