    Fucking stuck up roadies. Not every ride is a 'training' ride. I don't give a shit if you are actually pro or just a 'KOM' Strava jerkoff......when I wave...wave back. A smile at least! It makes us all look bad.
    I try to not take myself too seriously when in tights with pearlescent shoes and shaved legs.

    I've recently become much slower on my feet due to arthritis in one knee. I'm getting frustrated that I can't draft any salespeople when they try to lead me to the item I've requested. They drop my ass every time.

    Best friend/ band member of 7+ years playing it fast and loose with my phone number. Now I'm subbing tonight at a free show for a band who's music I've never even heard. I was day-drunk when I agreed to this; because when a Psychedelic Fur calls, you answer. Now I'm going to have an audience of my dearest and closest friend assembled to watch the trainwreck.

    Oh, and my girlfriend thought it would be hilarious to rip the elastic out of my underwear... in public... with a 30-minute walk home ahead of me.

    Idiots driving slow in the fast lane. The law is clear: 'Slower traffic keep right'. The law does not say 'Slower trafic keep right...unless you are going the posted speed limit, then its ok to drive in the fast lane, create a traffic jam, force everybody to drive around you, and be an idiot'.

    I also think this is hilarious. Please tell me this was a major wedgey situation.
    Mods, please move this to the fetish section if necessary.

    Absolutely! That makes me nuts- I am forever mopping up around sinks. It's not a bloody fountain- my cat is more tidy using the sink than most people. People who can only manage to put dishes and silverware in the forward half of the dishwasher also bother me. You've got all this unused dishwasher real estate back there, just begging to be used. But no- it's far better to cram every single fork in the house in first silverware basket and leave the others empty. Embrace the entire dishwasher and witness its awesome cleansing power.

    What really grinds my gears is when people drive around in the winter and they've only cleared one square foot of snow off their windshield so they can see out ahead- the entire rest of the car is still covered with snow. Apparently being irretrievably stupid and incredibly lazy is an absolute prerequisite to getting behind the controls of a several thousand pound mechanical device in the worst driving weather. I harbor the belief that these are the same people that drive at a snail's pace in the parking garage, looking for that one magic spot on the lower parking level that every other driver has somehow missed.

    And another thing- If you're going to put a bumper sticker on your car that announces to the world "My (insert dog breed here) is smarter than your honor student" then you are honestly stating that you are a dog lover who unfortunately is also an idiot.

    And also this- pull that silly bluetooth earpiece/mic out of your ear because when I see you walking down the street in front of me yammering away waving your hands around you look like a crazy person talking to himself. The only person cool enough to pull off a bluetooth earpiece is Steve McQueen- and he's dead.

    And if you go into a store and expect people to help you while you're talking on your cell phone- don't. Because it's rude. If you expect good customer service then be a good customer- it's a two way street.

    Seeing the toilet paper roll empty on the dispenser. And even more egregious, seeing a fresh roll of paper ready to load upon the dispenser, but just sitting there next to it. Cheesis K. Reist, that really rustles my jimmies.

    OK, it's not Thursday anymore but I'm pissed (and distraught) that the Delta flight I've been using for several years from GRR-DCA (direct, no stops, no delays, no nothing) is going away as of next week. This flight has been my lifeline from the sanity of the midwest to the insanity of the east coast and it takes about 80 minutes west to east and 90 minutes east to west to go from one universe to another. And it's going away.

    I honestly don't know what I'm going to do as this is a major paradigm shift for me. Bigger than anyone thinks. Still trying to wrap my arms around the loss of this flight.

    Yep, this one. Random arbiters of velocity piss me off every damned time.

    It's Thursday. And I have not too much to complain about today. Don't ask me tomorrow as I have to commute back out east to DC, which is not my favorite place on the planet and my direct flight is no longer available. So I have to ride the Zanconato tomorrow as I commute out early in the day. Miserable. Oh, wait, no, that part doesn't suck.

    Nothing to bitch about today. 45 mile race last night and a 61 mile ride today. Not too shabby.

    Morons who use the internet to take wild swings at experts.

    JUST because we answer you doesn't mean get to be rude.

    ISO Adults who can hold a civil conversation.

    Today is Thursday and I'm a little grumpy.
