    That I just renewed my license and registration on May 31st and now I have to go do it again so my name can go back to normal. I don't mind that so much - it's the waiting on line at DMV.

    Pretty sure there are quite a few about it. Lol.


    Surprisingly enough - DMV was fairly painless - less than an hour. The bank on the other hand - I need to go back and make them fix the name on the account cause they removed my middle initial for some unknown reason. Grrr.

    People not merging in traffic when they have a wide opening, instead, they try to pass everyone. Really grinds my gears.

    How about people that don't even know what merge means? We have drivers that stop before merging, and drivers already on the hwy that won't let anyone in. If they see you trying to merge, they speed up just enough so you can't.

    Inconsiderate drivers are almost enough for me to hate driving. When will the star trek transporters be finished?!

    Beam me to Wendy's!

    Quite the decision there. Tea is pretty good, but so is minty fresh breath.

    I see it on other forums as well, but all the support questions that get posted in the Introductions forum when the forum description clearly states:
    "Meet the team, and tell us a little about yourself... This forum is NOT for support questions!"

    GAH!!!!!

    I was reminded of one this morning, and another over the last couple of days:

    1) Morons who put HID bulbs in their reflector headlight housings. Without the cutoff of a projector housing you just blind everybody on the road. And why must you always turn your headlights on in broad daylight when you've done that? Are you showing off the fact that you're too cheap and/or too stupid to upgrade your entire headlight like you should? Tools like this are why you have some people trying to ban HID conversions entirely.

    2) Putting cones and one of those stupid plastic "caution kids at play" signs in the road does not turn the street into your kid's playground. Either teach your kids to watch out for cars and get the hell out of their way, don't allow them to play in the street at all, or if you can't manage that, keep them inside or in the back yard. The street is there so I can drive to and from my house, not your snotty little kid's powerwheels. Shooting me a dirty look for driving the completely reasonable 25 mph limit past the area you've unilaterally decided is your crotchfruit's personal play area is not going to win me over either.

    iTards. I ran into one on the bus today while playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on my phone. Guy wouldn't shut up about his iPhone. I had my Galaxy S 2 out. Told him that nothing will ever beat the sheer awesomeness of my Galaxy S 2 and Android. I told him I can run custom builds of Android and kernels. Guy still wouldn't shut up so I showed him Ocarina Of Time which made him shut up.
