Why is it that some people think I don't know they can see me picking my nose when I'm driving my truck?

It would kind of defeat the purpose otherwise.

The worst are the ones with their little bluetooth earpieces walking around in public seemingly talking to themselves.

Why is it so many people stop at yield signs when there’s no crossing traffic?

Had a woman come up to me and ask, "do you know where the pork rinds are" and I said, I think they are in the chip isle. And then the turned to look at me with a scowl, "IM ON THE PHONE."

Well #%&*$# me #%&*$#. I didnt see you micro ear bud.

More than once, when irritated by someone who is failing at the task of checking things out at a store in facepalm fashion, I have pulled out my phone, flipped it open as if irritated, put it to my ear and said "Good Lord, you are so stupid! It's unconscionable that you could be so completely incompetent!"

If they shoot me a dirty look, I hold up a finger as if to tell them to wait, bend into the phone, and curtly say "That's it, I have had it with you!" and after snapping the phone shut and putting it back in my pocket, grin in a shy, apologetic manner at the idiot.

For the bluetooth people, I engage them in conversation as if I'm unaware they are making a phone call.

Why is it that on Amazon in the product questions and answers section someone will answer a question asked with something along the lines of "I just received the product today and haven't used it yet so I don't know the answer to your question".

Seriously? Why answer just to say you don't know the answer??? I've seen this more than once.

I also see something similar to this on other regular special interest or hobby forums where someone asks a question of the forum in general and some dufus posts something like the following:

"I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly who does."

One can only hope that these people are also unable to figure out how to reproduce, but even a blind hog finds an acorn every once in awhile.

Why is it that people press on the button a million times when the elevator doesn't come fast enough for them? Pressing the button multiple times won't make the elevator come faster.

Why is it the people drive barely the speed limit in the left lane of a four lane road... because they have to turn left in FIVE or SIX FREAKIN MILES!

Or the antisocial folks vigorously pushing the Close Door button over and over.

Why is it that some people when turning left slow almost to a stop in the left lane, just to then enter the turn lane?

Same reason those who eat in their car throw their garbage out the window.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.
