Re: Things That Make You Mad


jerks that deliberately take up two parking spaces - if you can't park you pos then don't drive!

makes me wanna do stuff to their vehicle but I don't cause I don't wanna be arrested.

Or watching two people on the sidewalk directing their friend/family while they attempt to parallel park! in losers! it's a basic skill! and you're not driving a 20 mule train!

Other than that, I'm good

edit: I managed to get the ugly snag who lets her dog sh*& on my lawn each morning. She didn't respond to me yelling from the front door, so I timed it so I was out at the edge of the lawn when she came by with her mutt.

I said to her, see that? she looks sorta defensively..... I says (with my shovel full of dog sh** ) it's coyote shi* I think there's one living underneath the front deck there.

She is "oh my" and waddles off. She now walks her mutt on the other side of the road LOL I didn't think it'd work!

(we do have coyote's running around the neighbourhood, but they don't live under my deck)

Re: Things That Make You Mad


When people say they will get back to me and don't get back to me.
Hitting my finger.
When people don't give you (me) a clear concise answer.
When people don't have the same vision as me aka are wrong
When people doubt my abilities.
When people don't realize that i am not some stupid first year construction broom pushing pot smoking kid.
When people.
When people are to caught up in other BS to do a job.
When people make me have to repeat myself for ****ty reason.
When people ask me the same question.
I guess what i mean to say is that it bothers me when some people breath
The list goes on and on,

Re: Things That Make You Mad


Human trash walking around with their pants below their a$$. You know we are paying them to drag society down. Human trash with access cards. Ok, 15% are justified. Subsidising the breeding programs of third world countries. Vehicles that are too complex to fix. Stupid people buying the overly complex vehicles, thereby creating a demand for them. Wasting natural resources to manfacture plastic junk to fill the landfills. Ethanol. Tier IV engines...

Have a buddy pre-arranged...or a few to make sure one of em can make it there...and park your truck this |--------| far away from their drivers door....and have your buddy park this |--------| far away from the passenger door. Then go in for a long lunch/shopping. Or better yet...get a third guy to come pick you both up...and maybe come back a few hours later..........or maybe not

Neat song by Paul Thorn from Mississippi not far from here. Check him out on YouTube. Pimps and Preachers is another good one by him. HIs daddy was a preacher, his uncle was a pimp. One taught him to love, the other taught him to fight. You can also watch him fight Roberto Duran (?) on YT.

He kinda resembles Jason Statom, the actor.

Save now! 2.98

Flip the 'save now' tag up and see 2.98. That irks me a little.
A local grocery was bad about pricing a few products for one price, but the register would charge a different price as if someone failed to enter the new price in the computer. I can't help but feel it was intentional.
That would piss me off!
