Just plum aggravating,

Some annoying things,

Driving down the highway and coming up to an intersection where the crossing road has a stop sign. The vehicle coming from the side is approaching the intersection at a rate of speed you just know won't let them stop. Defensively you get on the brakes so you don't become a statistic and the jerk actually gets stopped in time and looks at you like "what's wrong" as you pass through the intersection at 30 mph.

Buying something sealed in a plastic bag and the label says "reclosable" or "resealable." They are zip-lock rip off bags that either wreck the 'zip-lock' section when you initially open it or the lock is so tight with no way to grab the sides to open the bag. Half of them won't seal either. Schwan's uses a bunch of these bags although theirs seem to work better than others. They should just attach a clothes pin because they work much better and even I can operate that.

TV commercials that force you to turn down the volume or is it the shows that are so quiet that they force you to turn up the volume. You'd think with the techology today the TV manufactures would catch on and have a setting to fix that. Someone said there are TV's that have a 'max' volume setting but I haven't seen very many.

The bag people at the grocery store are some of the nicest folks you will ever meet. But please stop putting the frozen items in the same bag with my lettuce and other fresh veggies.

Anything make you aggravated? (other than silly blogs)
