    If you were allowed to bring in a tax for something that annoys you what would it be?

    I've a few to get you started:
    Drivers who block fuel pumps while they head into the fuel station to get shopping!
    When you hold a door open for someone and they don't thank you!
    Drivers that turn and don't indicate!

    Please add and enjoy...

      People that take more than the limit of items through the express lane.
      People who stop at EVERY yield sign.
      Leaving your blinker on for miles.

      I could go on. I am easily irritated. haha

    People who scream on their cell phones in public
    People who text others or check their phones constantly while at the dinner table or while in a conversation with you.
    Rude people in general
    People who stand right outside a door and blow smoke on people who are walking in - this happened a lot at my college campus. 
    Lousy tippers or those who stiff waiters/waitresses (unless the service was truly lousy)

    Short people who insist on standing really close to someone else on the next step down, on an Up Esculator and then attempt to stick their nose into that other person's business!  roll

    Lazy people who think the world owes them a favor, yet can't tell you what it is!

    People who allow their dirty little dogs to hump the legs of their guests!  sad

    People who block traffic by sitting in their cars talking to other people who are sitting in their cars on narrow streets so you can't pass them.

    People who talk on cell phones while driving.
    Loud talking people in stores, they want everyone to know their business.
    Tall people crawling up my back when I'm trying to go through the check out and looking over my shoulder.

    Commercials about medicine that has more dangerous side effects than the disease you have.

      Oh, I'll drink to that one, Jaqueline!  I gripe about that almost daily!

    People who finish shopping, get in their cars, and just freaking sit there oblivious to the fact that someone is waiting for the parking spot!  (Especially in handicapped spots, which are too few in number to start with!)

    Fat people who run you over in the store, trying to squeeze through a small space because they don't seem to realize how much space they take up.  (Mind you, I'm not passing judgement on WHY they are fat--that's a personal issue, and there are many health problems that could be the reason--I'm just asking for a bit more awareness.)

    People who stand practically on top of your shoes in checkout lines, or in line at other places, invading your personal space.

    Spaced-out drivers who wait until halfway through their turn to use their turn signals.

    .....  I'm sure I could come up with many more, given time...  LOL...
    like "s4y g00dby3," I guess I'm easily irritated..  wink  lol

      I love every one of these! How about people who are in the check out lines ahead of you then goes back for one more item and they are half way through being finished?
