Default Re: things that irritate you

example:

i hate when i ask for something very specific at the parts store "I need a felpro 1262-S"

And the kid asks "what kind of car"

like it matters.. like im looking for a recommendation. i need an intake gasket for a mustang with aftermarket heads and intake...and then they look at you blankly so you provide more info so you can get back to your beer before it gets warm, but instead they try to become your friend, and brag about their cousins friends crappy 900hp evo that runs 10s...

Walking into a parts store, getting some moron that doesn't even know what the part is you asked for. Or they look on the computer and see "not available" and won't bother checking the paper catalog. I don't know how many times I found parts for customers when I worked for the Zone that said "not available" on the computer and when I pulled a catalog and looked it up, walked down the parts aisle and picked it up and sold it. That and screaming children in Walmart! That will get me out of the store in a big hurry.

Members that respond in threads with comments generally directed at you but hidden in the wording appear innocent and generalized.This way they get away with it?

Default Re: things that irritate you

What irritates me most is the shortness of life itself.

I seem to always have too many plans and too many on-going projects. But there's never time to finish them all. And at this point in my life I've come to understand that I will never complete everything I want nor do everything I want to experience. Several lifetimes would be required for all of that.

As far as the rest, not much else bothers me too much. I love both my day job and my little side consulting business. And I have no enemies in my daily life and I even like and care for a certain member here that I seem to irritate time to time. While I may lose my cool now and then, everyone in my life adds layers of enjoyment. Bad things come my way now and then. I'm dealing with one of those right now. But I pray that bad things never take my joy and that I never end up obsessed over them too much. In many ways, I feel truly blessed.

My biggest gripe in life is drivers who have to pass me so they can slow down and turn in front of me.

Jackasses in $50-60,000 SUV's that apparently don't come with turn signals on them.

Ya living in a retirement community they all seem to forget how to drive and all have at least one arm that does not work?

I find that I am a professional procrastinator, but at this point in my life I have actually done just about everything on the "bucket list". Being a life long adrenal junkie IMO you tend to do more things. At least meeting other of my "kind" we all follow the same path of experiencing life! I have actually started to try to think of things I still want to do in my life. Whats is funny is when I was in my twenties often people I met would say there was no possible way you have done all those things you claim...until they actually got to know me. Now here it is some twenty years later and the same comments???
hahahahah!

Now here I am in my life driving a PT Cruiser and talking about things that irritate me. Maybe I am starting to be my "father"? NOT!!!
