    People with no common sense. Plenty of other things, but that will drive me absolutely bonkers in some cases

    Liars. I just cannot deal with people that can't be trusted - wasting time wondering what's true and what isn't - I won't do that.
    God bless!

      I have no patience for liars. I try to be quiet about it but I always end up calling them on it, then I feel bad.

      I know what you mean when you say you feel bad after but really they  should have some remorse for thier deception. We never want to be nasty to others but it's wise to be upfront when the wolf comes dressed as a sheep. Stop the nonsense early. GBY

    Traffic.  Waiting for a red light a second time because people were moving too slow when it was green. When the light's green, you go!!!

      I agree although I must admit that I've been that slow/non-moving person before...lol

      I concur with Penny G about construction too - UGH!

      The worst is when there's a red light camera and it is taking my picture as I am making a right turn. There's no "No turn on red sign."  I'm not paying for that!

      Sometimes I barely make it through the door before whipping my bra across the room. Same with socks. Stifling, miserable garments.

      But all those Walmart videos... No bras in sight. As a man, I am thankful that that cruel man invented those because of the Walmart videos. Walmart videos drive me crazy all with reality shows like "Honey Boo Boo" and "Big Brother."  hahahaha

      I concur regarding the bra & like you - it's off once I walk through the door.

    Something that drives me CRAZY is the overuse of long, convoluted telephone answering menus (you know, those that give you like 14-15 numbers you can hit to reach the person you want to talk to?). It is frustrating enough to come across these when calling an ordinary place of business, but now they are used at places people should be able to talk to a real person QUICKLY. I recently had to call the emergency room and I had to deal with a convoluted answering menu before I could speak to anyone at the front desk. It is rude and inexcusable, especially when my city taxes are helping pay for the emergency room service.

      omg! my lawyers office was like this and then they'd change the menu options regularly so you couldn't bypass.  The kicker, you'd listen through the whole thing and then would hear "all lines are busy please try back later" then they'd hang up.

      Oh I agree, it's unusual to ever get anyone to answer the phone. In fact if they call me, immediately when I call back I get the messaage thing.  GRRRRR

    A few things, but one thing that makes me crAZy are those in the left turning lane (with an arrow) that take forever to move because they're not paying attention.  The other thing is constantly seeing people walking with their heads down, texting away, anywhere and everywhere.  Come on, watch where you're going and disconnect for a moment.

      Funny you should mention that. I ride my bike to work and I stay on the sidewalks. Today I saw a guy on a regular bike coming towards me, texting on his phone with one hand while the other hand had a bag in it. Neither were touching his handlebars...

    When something is advertised for sale and i go to the counter to be told that it's out of stock. I wanted to buy a lap top  once and the display model was the only one left. They wouldn't let me have that one either.

      Me too! I have gotten to the point I just call before I waste my gas or order on line. If it says back ordered I cancel immediately.

    When telemarketers call and no one is on the other end of the line. They just are seeing if someone is home at that time. The phone will ring at the same time another day only this time someone is trying to sell you something.

    OH the list is endless but generally speaking, stupid people.
    How about the guy in the left lane going so slow, people who are so involved in their mobile device they are not paying attention to what is going on around them, people who pronounce the S in Illinois...seriously it's a silent S.
    Generally people with no common sense.

    Ughhhhh, there are so many things that sets me OFF!  Parents who complain that their children possess no initiative nor drive but always critique the latter if they make even a minor mistake and/or even do the task themselves because the latter aren't proficient in such tasks as the parents want them to be. Hello, mistakes are how children grow and develop.   Parents who constantly bring up their children's mishaps and failures as if the children are to be perfect at all times and NEVER err. These are the parents who view mistakes as some type of mortal transgression which is unforgiveable in their eyes. Parents who assert that their children are inept and/or slow regarding mastering a task but the parents do not adequately teach the child regarding mastering that task. These are the parents who believe that children should teach themselves. Again, HELLO, children at a very early age must be taught tasks which is the parents' job. 

    Parents who have MORE children than they can adequately support financially and psychologically.What are these parents "thinking"? Don't they realize that by having a lot of children, their socioeconomic situation will be quite penurious at best? Don't they care about children growing up in socioeconomic poverty with little of the basic necessities such as food, clothing, and health care? Don't they realize that besides socioeconomic lack, their children will be bereft of quality parental attention? Well, guess not, these parents WANT what THEY WANT without considering the ramifications of large family life on their children.

    Parents who moan about how unsuccessful their children are as adults but refusing to acknowledge that they had played a major role in this by criticizing their children's goals and dreams, having little or no concern about their children's intellectual development,and/or dismissing or denigrating their gifted children-wanting them to be N-O-R-M-A-L or A-V-E-R-A-G-E, instead of encouraging their giftedness. Parents who use insidious psychological and/or psychic means to destroy their children's self-esteem. Such parents are evil, soul destroying parents are incarnates of the most abysmal negativity.

    People who refuse to learn and grow after being presented with evidence that will improve their lives and the lives of their children. People who believe in antiquated philosophies although such philosophies have no place in the postmodern era.  People who simply refuse to improve themselves AT ALL!

      So much true in this. Many children today raise themselves as the parents tend to their  social lives. Parents are responsible for teaching and exposing children to information, opportunities, letting them developing their personalities.

    Definitely,  the hair can make anyone go insane.  There several ways of preventing feeling stress about your hair. Shampoo your hair every two or three days. Use conditioner each time you wash your hair. Apply deep conditioner every two weeks.
    After you towel dry your hair. You need to use styling products. Such as,  the use of cream  or oils  to prevent your hair getting damage from the styling hot tools. If your hair bothers you. Keep it in a pony tail. Then, the other things that stress you . They will not make your hair be or feel bad. With love for you.

    The fact that people vote in the U.S. Elections for candidates who believe in the same things they do, rather than for the person who will best protect our rights and serve the U.S. Constitution!

    It's not about what you want, it's about what's constitutional!

    The things that make me the most nuts are things that really don't matter. I just sigh and wait for them to pass by. Like someone smacking their lips, or crinkling cellophane, or someone abusing the English language so that they seem like a person who barely qualifies as capable of speaking. I do my best to "endure" these indignities, my suffering through such things a testimony to how very kind and understanding I am of others differences. then breathe a sigh of relief when such individuals have moved on. hahaha
