    Biggest human pet peeve is slow drivers hanging out in the passing lane. I never understand why they prefer to drive in the left lane.
    So with you on the passing lane. The left lane is for driving fast and passing idiots who want to drive 15 under the speed lane. The middle is for normal driving, the right is for merging. If you have no need to be in the left or right lanes stay the heck out of them. But what really pisses me off is when they make you pass on the right and then get mad or flip you off for passing you on the right. I'm like "You made me do it, if you wouldn't have been doing 45 in a 60, I wouldn't have had to drive like a jackars and pass you on the right." We, have a rash of this problem in Washington, slow drivers think they own the left lane here. It drives me insane.

    Re: Pet Peeves That Really Tick You Off!

    It is frustrating getting locked in. I am not going to say they are all driving under the speed limit, because people do drive fast where I live. Pretty much everyone is driving at least 10 miles over the speed limit.

    Often the right lane is moving faster than the left lane.

    Some states are really good. In Texas, for instance, I have seen people pull partially off the road to let faster cars pass on by. Some states do seem to follow the "slower cars stay to the right" rules, but not all of them.

    You are in the wrong field if that pet peeve gets to you. I did the same type of work for over 20 years. Despite numerous licenses and getting a bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering, some people always view the profession as the toilet uncloggers.

    Is the 277v off of a delta or wye transformer?

    Some things simply are not worth covering. Especially for those who are confused as to whether they were an electrician or a plumber.

    Which begs the question:

    Is it Okie or Oky?

    People who change into the next lane from behind you to pass you and sit 2 meters in between you and another car, just slowing down the lane.

    Re: Pet Peeves That Really Tick You Off!

    It's starting to be..."Watching that stupid "let me help you enjoy your snickers" commercial," which played 12 times in an hour on the NFL Netwotk yesterday.

    It was only bearable because in between snickers breaks, Dallas was taking Seattle apart.

    When we stop rewarding families with fatter welfare checks everytime a new baby is born and make it so it actually pays better to work some of these issues may diminsih. Won't ever go away as long as th eentiltement mindset exists...

    OK, I will now put up my soapbox.

    I do not like being asked in front of Wal-Mart "You wanna buy some candy?" by adults that have no sign or shirt, etc. regarding who they are raising money for.
