I'd forgive them if I saw the wipers start before they turned, but yeah.

Generation I can't be bothered annoys me.

 

People that don't clean up after themselves at McDonald's and people that pull stuff out of packaging in retail stores and just leave a mess lying around.

 

That's just pure laziness and no consideration for others. Usually followed by 'it keeps someone in a job' justification for lazy man logic.

 

I noticed the future north you go, the worse is it.

People that can't park beside another car without denting it by opening their doors

 

 

 

 

People that park so close, that I can't get out of my car without denting their doors.

 

 

That does happen.  What irks me is if I park very carefully with plenty of room, or no car alongside, and return to find mine has been customised

Blame the people that put the lines down to squeeze an extra car or 2 in per row, or else totally ignorant about cars getting larger since they first did the carpark in the 1980's when it was all civics and old minis and other tiny little cars.

I notice this one all the time.  Particularly at the movie theaters.

 

One HUGE little thing that pisses me off is idiots on the footpath walking two abreast.  When I'm walking past, they refuse to budge and essentially force me on to the grass.  What the hell is up with that?  I'd do some "educating", but I'm usually walking during work hours with a uniform on close to home base and we suffer terribly from tagging and general vandalism already.  Last thing I need is to be the reason for an arson attack or something.

 

Aside to that is people riding their bikes on the footpath.  I actually don't mind (and don't blame Auckland cyclists one bit for doing it) unless they're coming within millimeters of me at 20KM/h and then cussing me out for being in their way.  When you are passing a pedestrian, get off your damn bike!

Yep, I have had occasion to have to go on the grass with my chair or stop so they can go their way. I to have been verbally accosted by cyclist for being in their way in my chair, most recently on Oriental Parade.

On the other hand they promote themselves as a 'restaurant'.  So surely as a restaurant they have staff to clear tables?

That must be very frustrating. 

 

I generally expect to give way to people with mobility limitations, visual impairments or prams.

Unknown subcontractors of Chorus leaving rubbish behind by the UFB cabinet in my street. There's a cardboard box, cut off bits of fibre and other UFB related stuff left on the footpath and in the gutter this week. Not a good look guys.

Drivers that queue up across "Keep Clear" road markings.

I dont understand why there is not a camera put in and fines being sent for doing that when people drive onto it when the exit is blocked. I know that cops can do it at intersections if they really feel like it, but I think they would rather be doing speeding fines since those are easier.

People turning right at an intersection without marked lanes who position their cars in the middle of the available space,  preventing left turning traffic from getting past.

 

Also councils who put in traffic islands etc that make roads intersections narrow

If it is a one lane road, it's a one lane road. You have to queue. Why would a person turning right want your vehicle blocking his view to the left?
