    Ooooh VERY good one!!!! I've actually had a heated exchange in a parking lot because someone did that. I finished my shopping and went back out, still there. I had my phone in hand about to call the police and the owner came over... I laid into him. Probably didn't teach him a thing though

    That’s outrageous!

    Back in the day before technology they used to always hire with a phone call or word of mouth followed by a face to face interview .. one of my claims to fame is that I had a 100% success rate if I could get myself in front of them .. many times I rejected their offer and used it to get a payrise out of my boss at the time ..

    The sound of chewing.

    The word ginormous. (we have two perfectly good words - enormous and giant - both of which are actual words. No need to combine them to make a word that's not a word)

    People who don't like dogs. Seriously, what's up with that.

    I'm def with you all on the leaving dogs in the car on warm days. Even with the window cracked it gets dangerously hot. Just a cruel thing to do.

    The 'woe is me' people, does nothing to improve their situation, especially when they rely on help on others and still complains that is not enough.

    Web sites that have so many ads, popups, videos that run automatically, etc. that they bog down my computer. Cooking/recipe sites seem to be the worst offenders.

    I understand that sites need ad revenue but the average user is impatient. If a page takes more than a few seconds to load there's a good chance people will avoid it.

    I have a similar issue with a word ..,

    I hate when people crowbar it into a sentence rather than just using opinion
