Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

People really bug me

So I went to a cold and blustery conservation area today (http://www.conservationhalton.on.ca/maple.html), and to fully partake in the experience we had to get some pancakes with real maple syrup. Of course this entailed standing in a line, in freezing wind, for about 25 minutes.

Here's the thing that amazes me: So to get to the front you must have been in this line for a half an hour, yet people would get up to the window, get asked what they want, and they'd then sit there going "hrmmmm" leaning out to see the menu board, carefully contemplating what they'd like to order.

UP AGAINST THE WALL!!!!

What the hell did they spend the half an hour in line doing? Oh, I get it, they're just grandstanding because now they're at the mic.

Blah. People.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the Kitchener.

My pet peeve in this respect is airports. (I travel a lot.) People act as if they've never seen a metal detector before. Oh, you mean I have to take the keys and cell phone and other crap out of my pocket *before* I walk through this contraption? Duh!

I hate to pick on a sex, but women are notorious for going through the checkout at the grocery store, and upon being presented with the total they THEN go about opening and rooting through their purse. Men, on the other hand, have usually estimated the amount and have the cash in their hands, or their debit/credit card at the ready.

Men always have cash in their hands or their debit/credit card at the ready because they are used to going shopping with women.
