What's gonna land you in jail one of these days?

For me, it's sidewalk rage, LOL. Not directed at other pedestrians, at cars. I've been walking at least an hour a day since I was a teenager. I've got decades of rage built up!

I've already got the crazy eyes. Give me a few more years or flagrant traffic violations and I'll be the nut pounding on someone's hood or heaving rocks at windshields.

    I'm going to steal my neighbor's dog one of these days. Why get a puppy if you're not going to be home all day while the poor thing cries day in and day out? It's not that I mind the noise, it's that my heart is breaking hearing it cry. Or heck, bring it one door down and I'll babysit your dog really cheap. Heck, at this point I'll do it for free just so I don't have to hear it cry.

    BTW in case anyone remembers my previous rants, these are not the same neighbors that tied their dog out on the back porch and let it bark all day long. Those guys moved away right when I was seriously considering swiping their dog and finding a good home for it, and I got some new bad-dog-owning neighbors. Just my friggin luck! :roll:

    Mine's a little like yours, except I'm going to go crazy one day on people who yell at me while I'm running. Or throw things at me, or flash their lights in my eyes!

    Blaring pop music in stores. I'm not talking even clothing stores, it's in grocery stores, drug stores, gas stations. It's everywhere. I hate when people subject you to their type of music. I don't like pop music. Maybe in some Psychology of music on buyers study, pop music was proved to make people buy more, whatever I don't care. It drives me insane. I want peace and quiet, or at least just soft instrumental UNOBTRUSIVE music, not some little dork pop boy in a breathless voice repeatedly telling me about his troubles or how lonely he is without pop girl. (or vice versa.)


    Just SHUUUUUUUUUUUUUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cussing:

    Maybe not jail, but rather the looney bin.

    I took my son to morning sports practice at 5:30 this morning (an ungodly hour BTW), and I was cranky anyway because I hate to be up that early. I had to get gas on the way home, and all the gas stations seem to have an annoying BLARING video screen on top of every pump these days, screaming advertisements at me. I told it to STFU today...and I don't care who heard me. They're lucky I didn't pour gasoline on it and light it up. I stopped going to one grocery store because they had blaring video advertisements in the check out lines. I can't stand all that noise.

    Various and sundry violations on public transportation. People screaming into their cell phones; people listening to iPods, but the music is so loud I can hear it 5 seats away; men fondling their Blackberry constantly. I swear it's a new form of masturbation.

    excessive noise will probably send me to a looney bin someday too. I lack the ability to filter out background noise, and if there's a lot of it, it makes it sounds like everyone's mumbling. drives me nuts.

    I haven't seen that at the gas stations, but the local Albertsons and Walmarts have those now. They are very annoying.

    It'll be sidewalk rage against pedestrians for me. My office is right in the middle of Times Square. It's the holiday season, and I am pregnant and using a cane for a broken foot.

    I'm a club-fighter if I'm drunk. If I'm out, had a few drinks and you run into me or tell me something crazy, you will get get knocked the hell out.

    If MelSue were here, she'd give you guys a good rundown. :laughing9: We've been put out of some clubs SEVERAL TIMES.


    I've learned to control it. Actually, I think I grew out of it. I was releasing my pent-up anger in the wrong ways.

    Girl, I used to be a handful. Well, I still am..but about a year ago, I was off the chain! I just was so mad at the WORLD. As much entertainment as it provided random club-goers, I don't advocate that kind of behavior.

    This won't put me in jail but it'll get me kicked out of my gym. I swear I will go crazy on the next person who decides to have a full-on, loud conversation right next to me while I'm on the treadmill. If you're able to chit-chat comfortably on the machine, you're not working hard enough to do you any good. So go away!!! :angry5:

    Ugh, that gets me too. I'm highly irritable if I have to run on the treadmill anyways and it bugs me if people are talking around me really loud or trying to ask me questions. I'm like "I'm running here"!!! Also I hate it when a line of treadmills is open and someone gets on the one right next to me. Or the people who are walking at like speed 2.0 and try to act like they're really working up a sweat. UGH!!!!!!

    I can understand not wanting the loud conversations next to you (my definition of hell is being stuck on the treadmill between two loud yentas having a conversation.) But why does someone just exercising at their own pace bother you so much? Some people really do sweat at 2.0, because they're out of shape and are trying to get in shape. Why be such an exercise snob?

    It's not the pace, it's the loud groans or making a big production of how it's building up a sweat.

    My brother's old neighbors did that...they got a tiny little puppy for their kids and the dog was neglected big time and the kids abused rather than played with the lil guy. He got so mad that one day he knocked on their door and said "You aren't treating the puppy the way he deserves to be treated. If you don't want the dog, I'll take him" And they quickly dumped the dog into his arms. He still has him.

    I think I'm a hypocrite. I have sidewalk rage against cars and road rage against pedestrians. I've almost gotten run over on campus several times when I was in a crosswalk with a red light. There are two new(ish) stoplights on either side of the university building where my office and classes are, and people run them sometimes. I can see how it'd be easy to accidentally run the light if you're not used to it being there, but to run it when there's someone in the crosswalk?

    On the other hand, I also have road rage against pedestrians who think it's totally okay to walk out in front of you when there's no crosswalk or when there's a crosswalk but there's a DON'T WALK light! I almost hit two high-school boys who walked out in front of me a few days ago while all their friends stayed on the sidewalk. The light was green, they had a "don't walk" sign, and I was going 35. Thankfully my brakes work well!

    And don't get me started on the most annoying intersection in the world, Lake St. at State St on the UW campus. There's a crosswalk and stop sign there, and if you happen to hit it at the wrong time (basically any time during the day), you can literally sit there for 10 minutes waiting for pedestrians to get out of the way. There will always be some polite ones who stop and want to let you go, but then one clueless and/or rude one who holds you up, so the rest of them go, and the process starts all over again. (Castella, you can probably back me up on that one. :laughing9: \)
  • SnarlsSnarls Posts: 2,537Registered Users
    Ok, granted, MOST pedestrians suck. But I'm pretty darn considerate for a pedestrian. I stop at EVERY intersection and look all ways. If there's a stop sign, I let the car go first. I'M not the one who's in a homicidal hurry! (self righteous snort). I obey the damn lights. Sort of. I respect anyone with a cane or walker or scooter or stroller or dog. I try not to sneak up on old people and scare them. And finally, hey, I drive too! I know which streets are awful for waiting forever to get a chance to go! So if you're in a car and it's awful, yes. I will wait. And let you go.

    I saw a woman get struck and thrown several feet by a car a few months ago. She was OK, I guess, I mean she got up at least. The guy ran a stop sign. And she wasn't looking and had her ipod going.

    No one becomes a kinder, more gentle person behind the wheel of a car. I'm a ball of piss when I drive too. But I hate cars, they bring out the worst in people.
