    Drive thru attendants. They cannot get the orders correct!
    People walking in the mall who stop right in the middle of the isle to talk or look around to where they are going and expect YOU to walk around them.
    People who HAVE to have the last word on any topic.

    People who can't effing park their vehicles to save their lives. Especially the ones driving larger SUVs.

    I just can't understand how people can be so damned inept at something that they do multiple times just about every single day.

    Other than that, people masquerading as pylons. You know them. They're the ones who decide to stop dead (usually right in front of you) in the middle of a high pedestrian traffic area of a store, restaurant or other public venue.

    Oh and another random one...I hate the word 'endeavour'. To me, it always sounds like they are trying to sound smart. "We will endeavour to..."

    Pro-active. It became a word in the 80s and like most things from the 80s it is a massive pile of un-necessary suckage. Suck my hairy left nut you sham non-word... (although if you really were the word you claim to be you would already be doing it...).

    Noisy eaters
    People who block isles with their carts while shopping
    The use of hack-words like "prolly" and "teh" etc. With autocorrect just about everywhere someone has to write that on purpose and make sure it stays written that way

    People that have no idea how to make good use of a sidewalk:
    1) when you're walking directly at someone, why is it still not standard that you both yield to the right? I've never understood the awkward dance when you meet in the middle.
    2) When people walk 3-4 people wide and take up the entire sidewalk and I have to step onto the street when walking in opposite directions. One day I'll make it into a game of Red Rover.

    I also hate youtube ads. And hold music on telephone; they always have the worst songs.

    I hate it when someone who really stinks gets on the bus and stinks out the entire place. There should be a sniff test. If the driver can smell you, no bus for you.

    Whomever began the "wheelhouse" fad in sports vernacular, and all the lemmings who followed along with this tired cliched overused expression need to be bludgeoned. Unless you are the captain of ship, STFU already with that word.

    Thank you.
