    What sparked this, and by the way I was searching to see if we already had a "grind my gears" thread so if we do link it and ill redirect there. But I went to wallyworld as I go there to grab frozen fruits (frozen fruits are cheaper there than the other stores, though Ill choose publix or farm for fresh), and saw someone load their car with their bags and then just parked their shopping cart next to another car (leaning up against it) vs walking a few feet to place it in the rack. Now the next person pulling into the parking lot is having to be careful not to hit it.

    this need not to be said but, as tempting as it may be, no politics. Or we will have people posting about how each other is grinding their gears.

    It's funny that you mentioned shopping carts @pc747 That's one of my biggest pet-peeves; people that leave shopping carts all over a parking lot instead of returning them to the cart return area. I hate door dings because someone else's cart blew into my vehicle...due to complete laziness. :mad:

    Oh if you hate door dings stay out of ATL.I notice down here that because they are trying to cram so many cars in a lot the parking spaces are slim. Yet people have no problem kicking their door open and shaking your car with the force of the door hitting your car. Yet they will get out the car and stare at you like you did something wrong. And dare you to say something.

    I see people will intentionally park their car next to your car and you look at how close they are parked and you know their is no way they can open their door without hitting your car. And since they won't move I will just move to keep them from hitting my car.

    Another thing that grinds my gears is seeing so many people using their phones while driving....still. I just don't understand the need to use a phone while driving, it's extremely dangerous but yet I see it happen almost daily on my drive to work & home.

    Next time you should try this (see photo)
    This, plus they don't realize they are the ones causing the congestion. Had a guy in the left lane doing 50 MPH on 480 while reading his text or God knows what. Meanwhile car after car passing him on the right.
    The restaurant doesn't even have to be empty for loud cell phone talker. More importantly, why do they always seat them next to you when the place is empty.[​IMG]
