    Oh let me count them out.. no will just list a few :
    Making plans for someone to call, show up, and not bothering to call and give an explanation, why they are going to be late, or not show up. !(when i worked, this was my biggest peeve ever. I would tell them - unless you have been kidnapped, hogged tied and left for dead in a ditch- you best call in !) It is rude and disrespectful to keep others waiting.
    Someone trying to recall a certain day or time, and they have to ask or call someone else to find out. Unless your on trial or a witness to something, it is unimportant .
    My appt. time is 10:30, and its is now 11:15 ! My time is just a valuable as yours doctor, lawyer, vet, whomever. Besides I got shows I could be watching :D

    It's Healthful, although the supply will keep you healthy.

    One of My daughters and I play a game of misusing words. A private joke. Like: my neighbor had a tubal litigation.

    When you start to tell about something you saw, and someone that wasn't there, begins to tell you what you really saw. They think they know more about what you saw than you do.

    Those are the same people who ask directions, and when you begin "You go two miles and turn left at the feed store..." they correct you with "Isn't it faster if I make the turn just before that?" SMACK!

    The younger generation wearing a baseball cap backwards. A few tattoos are fine, but today, all over the arms, knuckles, neck, legs, back and with some, all over their face. And, body piercings on the face and other (unmentionable) places.

    And, without a doubt, those young folks who have no respect for Seniors, even if shown respect.

    Patrick Henry's home has been long gone. The land is private property. You can look at the field...

    Ugh, Betty. That reminds me that I can't stand people talking with their mouths full.
