Showers with uncontrollable temperatures. Somebody flushes a toilet or does laundry and it alternates between boiling hot and freezing cold. This is extra annoying in winter.... :evil:

Easily fixable. Install a pressure ballanced shower faucet. Boom! No more tempature changes.

Mine don't even have temperature changes, and never have.
My winter is like a summer.
All year is like summer.

When someone is standing directly behind me. I cannot stand it when people do this to me. Once they get behind me I cease all activity. I can't do anything if I know someone is watching me from behind. The worst part is when I ask the person to move they usually think its funny to remain there. I hate it!

^ Haha a good guess but not exactly correct.

Morons who walk into an elevator without waiting for people to get out first. Stupid dipshits were probably raised by monkeys.

^ I used to see this happen all the time when I was at college. It was pretty annoying but funny at times since some people would call others out on it.

I really get pissed when I'm driving and the person behind me forgets to turn off their brights. It drives me up the wall in a matter of seconds.

How about non-handicapped people who get in will wait for a busy elevator to go up or down one floor.

These pesky drivers in Arizona who decide that prior to making a turn off a busy street it is necessary to deccelerate to barely over an idle roll 40 feet before the turn, then come to a complete stop...then slowly commence the turn over the course of the next 15 seconds....(Oh and of course you've got no way to pass them)

or those Pennsylvania drivers who slow down and stop on a highway on-ramp, waiting for a break to enter the fast moving traffic. :shock: :D

Marv: Me thinks the kitten would surely give ya a big assist there. :lol:

Unsupervised and unsocialized children running rampant in public. Sometimes I'd like to give 'em a half grain of Valium and a shot of Stoli. I remember seeing a sign in a coffee shop once: Unsupervised children will be sent home with a double espresso and a puppy! I liked that. :twisted:

Well, you could use the same approach my Mom did. Teach your daughters to do it the way you prefer and then make it their job! She felt the same way about dishes, the kitchen floor, vacuuming, making beds, etc. Wasn't always a perfect job, but she didn't complain (too much).

LOL!!! That's the plan. I already have them cooking meals, washing the dishes, taking out the garbage, shovelling the snow, doing their laundry and such. But since I'm the big bather, I figure I'd do my part. Besides their still young, I don't want them to burn out.

Getting behind people with a cartfull of groceries who use the self-checkout scanners and who don't have a clue how to do it.

No problem. I should have added "and the people don't accept an offer of help." I'm sure you wouldn't be in that group.
