    While trying to find a parking space in the mall, I hate it when people just drive against the flow. Ignoring the signs that says "WRONG WAY". These freaks still insists on doing so just to be able to get a quick parking space.

    It also get's to me when people don't park their cars properly. Either they are too close to taking the space of the next car's area or they don't straighten the cars and just leaves it like a child leaves his toy car after playing.

    Answering cell phones in the middle of meetings
    People putting their feet on chairs and tables
    Parking in disabled parking spots
    Leaving cell phone noise on so everyone knows when they get a message
    Asking a question and then interrupting part way through the answer as if they know already
    Talking to people like they are idiots
    Reading text messages while someone is talking ...
    and walking away while someone is explaining something
    ... probably best if I stop now ...

    That reminds me of how riled I got when this young female supermarket clerk gave me the wrong change because she was too busy texting! Then she got an attitude because I said " no texting while working " loud enough for other people to hear me!! She put her phone down though and looked to see if the manager heard me.

    He is obviously an ill mannered, brainless oaf. We get them over here as well... It bothers me that there are decent people starving in the world, while useless scum such as these, usually living off the state, exist seemingly only to make everyone else's lives as unpleasant as they possibly can.

    Anti-social behaviour on public transport is getting worse over here - I work for a living, I don't ask for much, just a relatively peaceful journey home, unmolested. The delays, cancellations and other issues are enough. What I don't expect to have to deal with is the noises, smells and annoyances created by people who obviously haven't worked a stroke all day - people who have been hanging around the town spending their benefit money on whatever **** takes their fancy. These people board with their uncontrollable screaming kids, throw their food and drinks all over the seats and floor and then sit there texting or shouting down the phone while their brats run up and down making as much noise as possible...

    Discipline has quite simply broken down - and without that fundamental building block of a civilised society you can forget about such niceties as manners.

    I did once see an *inventive* solution to a youth playing a personal stereo way too loud. tskatskatska from the other end of the carriage. A guy who can only be described as a hero went and set next to him and politely asked him to turn it down. When told to f**k off by this schoolchild he put one leg up blocking the kids exit and proceeded to fart. And then explained that he would stop polluting the kids airspace when the kid stopped polluting ours.

    The kid turned his music down and fart-man got a round of applause from pretty much every one else in the carriage.

    My pet peeve is drivers with bad manners. Not giving way, talking on mobiles, not watching the road, pulling out in front of you, parking in no parking areas and generally behaving appallingly!

    Anyway, why am I reminded of these guys when reading through this thread
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I can only speculate on why people do what they do ( I wish I could read minds, but I can't )!!
    I actually think a lot of people do what they do because they really do not know any better.
    Some might call it a lack of " upbringing ". I also believe that there are a lot of people just
    seeking a confrontation or an opportunity to just badger someone. Whatever the cause it is disgusting!!

    I don't think it would help, anyway. Most of the folks described here have less information in their heads than can be found on a cereal box.
