What peeves you off? It can't be political, as towards people in politics nor social issues like homelessness, anti-globilizationists, free trade, etc. It can include entertainers. No posters at rabble.

What peeves me off these days? Idiots who don't look before driving into traffic. Grrrrr. I lean heavily into my horn like it could get stuck there.

In the last few days it's been people driving too slow in the left lane, because they are, you know, planning to make a left turn sometime in the next few days, so they don't want to be changing lanes willy nilly....

And, what makes it worse is that London has so few per capita miles of four lane roads anyway, it's not like they can afford to be wasted on slow drivers.

Where's a cop when you need one?

Yesterday I was walking in the pouring rain, and at least two cars cut me off by turning into a parking garage, turning on a green while I was walking straight, etc.

Oh, I'm so sorry, sir, how silly of me not to realize that people in warm dry cars should ALWAYS take priority over wet pedestrians walking in the rain who have the right of way. Excuuuuuuuuse me.

Wot everybody said. But the poor drivers will always be with you.

What really gravels my ass is finding typos, or bad editing, in The New Yorker. Actually it's more disheartening than infuriating.

"When the world falls apart, some things stay in place," as my man Billy Bragg said, but such faith is constantly being tested, and I don't like it. Nossir, I don't like it at all.

Michelle - Drivers in general are so craptacular, they should all retake the driver's test but also an extensive rules of the road. I've seen people in their cars come towards me when they don't have the right of way, when there are parked cars on one side of the road and I, at times, almost end up having half my car on the boulevard. Dumb asses.

'lance - I agrhee aboute teypos. Believe me, at work, there are a number of signs with typos. It's not even funny. Here's a prime example.

The sign on both mens' and womens' change room read;

MEN'S CHANGEROOM
WOMEN'S CHANGEROOM

??? What the...???? *LOL*
