People who take their time getting on to the train at rush hour, so they can take 30 seconds to look around for a suitable place to sit. Trains run to tight schedules and will sometimes leave if commuters take too long to get on.It's happened to me twice.
I don't bother being polite anymore. During a recent "near-miss", I pushed on and said (in my Northern accent- all guttural short vowels) "For f***'s sake. What the f*** is wrong with people around here?". I think the intended recipient got the point. :grrr:
Or how about the pinheads that try to get on the elevator before the people get off.
Another thing that gets me are the tools on airplanes who have to make that phone call to the office to "check in" the instant the flight attendant says you can use your cell phones.
Do these people really think that the universe has screeched to a halt for the 1 - 2 hour period they couldn't be reached? That without their brilliant guidance their company has lost 200 points in the market and only by them calling in can humanity be saved?
Or stop signs.
How come it takes ten times as long for someone to decide to go if there is no one else at the intersection compared to another car being there?
I mean if no one's there, do they have to scan for cloaked Romulans?
