    The word \"supposably.\"

    Sure it\'s a real word, but it does not mean the same thing as \"supposedly.\" Learn the difference.

    :flame:another hate

    I’m trying to open a bottle of aspirin with one of those child safety tops.....I may need Mikes “Hammer” soon, also the print on the side is so small, I had to put on my painting visor to read the F***ing thing.

    Funny, that\'s one of my pet peeves.
    I tailgate because there is always someone who thinks that the regular flow of traffic is too fast, and want to play safety patrol. The slam on the brakes and then speed up and not let pass leads to road rage. I\'m glad we don\'t share the highways lol

    To roughly quote George Carlin - \"if someone is tailgating you, they are IDIOTS!!! If someone is in front of you, going too slow and you are tailgating them then they are MORONS!!\"

    I always go the same speed or slightly faster than the regular flow of traffic (which most people here go about 10 mph over the speed limit). It\'s the people in a monster SUV, yakking on a cell phone, driving 30mph over the limit and weaving in and out of lanes that make me do that. :D

    When I get behind people that are going 10mph under the speed limit, I still follow at a safe distance until I can pass them. I find it foolish to follow any closer, because it would be my ass on the line if they broke for a red light/pedestrian/animal, and I accidentally ran into them. Not to mention a ruined afternoon. :)

    It\'s not so much about the tailgating, it\'s the slow drivers that refuse to let faster traffic pass. It\'s all good though. I\'m pretty much done with driving, except for around town. Just too expensive now.:cry:

    I dislike those slow drivers too. My grandma always took pride in her slow and cautious driving, claiming that the only time an officer ever spoke to her about her driving was when he yelled out of his window at her to go faster. lol

    We have those here - usually found near the theme parks. One driving, the other with a map unfolded across the dash. Suddenly they make a right hand exit from the middle lane of the highway.

    We call them tourons (tourist + moron). And are very glad they leave their money then leave.

    In an effort to combat this very peeve, Alaska has consciously remained free from theme parks. We also refuse to add more than two lanes to the road.

    Minivan assembly plants that can\'t seem to figure out how to build out of one model year and start up the next one at all smoothly.

    A customer who\'s left hand doesn\'t know that they even have a right hand, let alone know what that hand is doing and that it\'s holding a lit stick of dynamite.

    Bosses who can\'t deal with customer issues properly and just tell you to \'wait and see\' and \'I\'ll get back to you when I know more\".

    Can you tell I\'m having a wonderful day at work today?

    I know what you mean when you say that. However that sometimes has to be the answer if a \"problem\" has to be investigated. What does annoy me is that when a customer is in the wrong and is trying to blame the support people when a boss fails to back the support person.


    People who move your desk and work area, when you are on a day\'s sick (genuine) and then when you can\'t find your Personal Effects, Laugh.
    That\'s gone forward as a formal complaint. Nothing will happen of course as the person involved is \"bullet proof\".
