What's one poor behavior that people generally tolerate?

    Slow shoppers.

    I am Mr. efficient when it comes to shopping. I know what I want and generally try to make quick work out of getting through the process.

    It's them fuckers that stop in the middle of the aisle to deal with their brain matter without acknowledging the traffic jam they just caused, thems the bastards that need a bitch slap.

    Old ladies who wait until every item is scanned and the total rung up before the start searching in their purses for their checkbooks and then take forever to write a check. Haven't they ever heard of a debit card?

    The slow turner. The ones that slow to a crawl 1/4 mile before the turn then take FOREVER to get through it. Sends me into a fit every damn time. Whip that shit in there and get the EF out of my way.

    And if they have a debit card they act like they are signing the fucking declaration of independence. Dotting I's and crossing t's and all that crap. The next time I sign one of those things and that shit is legible will be the first. I've put X before and it says "accepted" hurry the fuck up you old blue hairs.

    I saw someone pay with a check at Kroger the other day. I was taken aback because it's been forever since I've seen it.

    And they filled the whole freakin' thing out AFTER the total.

    Back in the day, when I paid with checks at the store, I filled everything out but the total while I was waiting in line. Duh...

    I also dislike slow shoppers. I ain't got time for that.

    The bimbos who stand in line 5 minutes at the deli but wait until they are at the front of the line before thinking about what they want to order. Then they ask the guy 3 questions about the food which they ignore before ordering something not on the menu board.

    People who need at least 100yds of clear pavement between them and the car in front of them before they'll even budge. It is physically possible for a line of 1,000 cars to all begin moving at the exact same time. It just involves paying attention and pulling your head out of your ass. Start-up loss is a major contributing factor to excessively long queues at intersections.

    I used to just give them a short "Stop daydreaming, Buddy!" toot on the horn. Now I am often forced to give them the loud, extended "Put the smartphone in your pocket and get you head of of your ass" Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooonk!

    Yeah, but I'm not just talking about people who are oblivious to the fact that the light is green. There are far too many people who just insist on taking their sweet damn time moving. The next time you're going the opposite way of a bottleneck, check out the gaps between some of the cars. The line is probably 30-50% longer than it needs to be because of them.
