as far as walking goes, the worst is when there's a person ahead of me walking just slightly slower than my regular walking pace, so I either have to slowly pass them and walk along side them for a while or sprint past them as if I'm in some big hurry when really all I want to do is walk at a comfortable speed

114. People who cannot walk in a straight line but drift all over the pavement, and somehow anticipate which side you're trying to pass them on and cut you off, making you stop and go round them on the other side and look like an idiot.

115. Drivers who lean in close to the windshield, like they're squinting. You're only closer to the windshield; you're not closer to what you actually need to see in any way that would make a difference.

116. The entirety of the "freak-folk"/"new weird America" movement.

117. people who stop in the middle of busy pedestrian through ways to set down their bags to have a chat. sidewalks, airports, malls, museums, wherever.

118. similarly, people who do this with their shopping cart while ogling canned tuna. get the fuck to the side.

This thread is so hatey on OTHER PEOPLE. I tried to add some inanimate balance with hangers but it's swung back to humanity and it's out of control!!!!!!!!!! Seriously Hell IS other people.

121. Use of the word "awesome." I realize this battle was lost long ago, but I thought the word was supposed to mean something, well, awe-inspiring. I first heard it used in Star Wars (Luke seeing the Death Star: "It's AWESOME!"). A music professor of mine in college still used it in its pre-80s heaviness, and one day caught himself: "Jimmy Lyons' playing was AWESOME...and when I say 'awesome,' I mean in the way that word was used before people started to use it to refer to pizza."

(I think I told this story somewhere else on ILX...apologies for the repetition)

I rode the train yesterday with a couple, of which the man kept pressing his sweaty back against the upright pole I was holding onto

this is my all-time number one subway pet peeve. like it makes my blood boil when ppl lean against poles on crowded trains, preventing anyone else from hanging onto them

99. Opening goods in the supermarket & eating/drinking them before you've paid for them (and then handing the opened package to the cashier at the checkout). The only exception I will allow is maybe, *maybe* if you have small children/toddlers with you. But if you're a grown person, surely you can wait til you've paid for the damn thing. It's called impulse control.

^^^this. also i wonder whether the people who do this actually have the money to pay for the items they're consuming. what if they get up to the register and realize they have no cash, and their cards are maxed out, and the store doesn't take checks?
