freitasm: Last week I had one that actually accelerated and I couldn't merge, so I had to slow down to let him go ahead and a few meters later he changed lanes.

 

Irritating, but it did save that driver 0.003 of  a second, that is vital to them

WyleECoyoteNZ: Drivers on the motorway that won't let you in at the end of the on ramp merge, even though the right hand lane is clear. 

 

Merging... all those people with broken zips who seem to think there are two teeth in a row on the same side. They must be walking around with their fly open all the time.

Dickheads who are in such a hurry that they'll overtake you (usually unsafely) ~50 metres before a passing lane begins.

because they know what's going to happen when they reach the passing lane, the slow car will see the passing lane and double his speed so you cant pass him without going to court to do so and then slow down so you are still behind them doing 80-90 k's.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

These two women who hop on the bus every day and instead of sitting side by side they sit one behind the other. And chat the whole way, even while other people are sitting next to them.

Exactly like it is happening right now.

Not sure if this one was mentioned but...

 

When you ring a company and they place you on hold for a long long time... and then the call drops.

People who post "+1 This" instead of pressing the +1 button.

 

Even worse are the people who post "+1 This" on a post whose only new content is "+1 This".
