    The next time this happens look straight at that persons eyes and keep walking straight. I guarantee you they will move out of your way.

    It irks me when the ladies break up an otherwise fun date night with awkward questions.
    "We're are we going?.... What are your plans for the future?.... What did you put in my drink?.... Why won't you let me go??"

    Sheesh, some of us just want to enjoy the moment.

    If I knew what one was, I could tell Rylant if I use it or not. Seriously, I have no idea what an indicator is.

    These are the big 3 for me. All surrounding driving and traffic.
    Thankfully i spend little or no time in the car besides the commute to work.
    I am a cyclist and I agree with this 100%. BTW, I follow road rules. Yesterday evening I watched a cyclist ride through a red light and nearly get crushed by a car and the cyclist had the audacity to shout obscenities at the car driver. Maybe I am evil but as I watched from my bike while stopped at the light I really wished the cyclist had been hit by that car.

    But the plural of "octopus" is "octopi". And "octopuses". They both are equally acceptable.

    The rest of your list is solid.

    The word "octopi" is pretty widely considered incorrect. This is from wiki.

    The usual plural in English is "octopuses" (pronounced /ˈɒktəpʊsɪz/),[51] but the Greek plural form "octopodes" (pronounced /ɒkˈtɒpədiːz/) is sometimes used, though less frequently than in the past.[52] The form "octopi", as if the word were a Latin second-declension noun, is generally considered incorrect,[47][52][53][54][55][56] but is in fact used, so that it is registered by the descriptivist Merriam-Webster 11th Collegiate Dictionary, which lists "octopuses" and "octopi", in that order, and Webster's New World College Dictionary, which lists plurals in the order: "octopuses", "octopi", and "octopodes". The Oxford English Dictionary (2008 Draft Revision)[57] also lists "octopuses", "octopi", and "octopodes", in that order, labelling "octopodes" as rare and noting that "octopi" derives from the misapprehension that octōpus is a second-declension Latin noun and stating that, if the word were native to Latin, it would be third declension octōpēs (plural: octōpedes) after the pattern of pēs ("foot", plural pedēs).[58] The New Oxford American Dictionary (3rd Edition 2010) lists only "octopuses" as being the acceptable pluralization, with a usage note indicating "octopodes" as being "still occasionally used", and "octopi" as being "incorrect".[59]

    4 more things I need to add that I’ve come across in the last few days that have pissed me off more than I thought.

    When a small leaf is stuck under my wiper blade and it leaves a line of water when I use them. That is really annoying.

    When a driver rides your butt and you move out of the way (going 120km/hr), they pass you, and 1minute later they are going 100km/hr in the passing lane still, and now you’re caught behind them. WHY WERE YOU RIDING MY BUTT!?

    Or on a 4 lane road (two each way), and there’s 2 cars side by side, going to same speed (slower than what you want to do), and there’s no way to pass them. It’s a passing lane fellas!

    People who swear while yelling at a child. I don’t condone yelling at a child, but sometimes it’s needed. But to add in swearing is just not necessary. I was at a DQ and a father (most likely divorced from the convo, he doesn’t get the kids often to begin with) was said the price of his food was $20.42 (rounding down to $20.40). But on the till it said $20.44 (rounding up to $20.45). He was then given his changed based on the till, and he freaked out on the missing 5cents. Turns to his kids while yelling “DIDN’T HE F$CKING SAY $20.40?! I CANT BELIEVE EVERYONE WANTS TO F$CK ME OVER TODAY!”. Of course your kid will agree with you out of pure fear. No need to yell over 5cents, and if you are in need of that, maybe you shouldn’t even be at a DQ. Everyone gets mad, but no reason to yell at the kids, along with swearing. He could have said it nicely in a way that just confirms what he knows, or sucked it up and not complain about 5cents.
