I really hate it when I'm in line and something happens making the line be stuck. Either something goes wrong with another customers card or the register, causes the line to be held up. Ugh this keeps happening to me, WHY?

Y'mean like they don't have the balance to cover their purchases?  Or the card is expired/cancelled?  That would be the customer's fault, not the card's.
 
The only thing I can see going wrong with the card, is if it breaks.  That happened to me last year.  My card was cracked, and the payment pad thing wouldn't accept it.  The cashier simply keyed in the info, and all was fine.
 
Oh, another thing that happens on occasion, is that the card simply can't be read.  In that case, the cashier places the card in a plastic bag, and then swipes it.  For some reason, that works.

P*sses me off to no end when people tell me they are going to do something and then they don't, and they don't even have the courtesy to call and tell me they are not doing it.  Because if they called me, I might be able to try and get someone else more quickly.
 
This is the first time I have ever needed to get someone to mow for me and dealing with when he has an opening, if it's going to rain, etc. We had a 3 day window.  He says, "I'll call you and let you know which day I will come." It was supposed to be Mon, Tues, or Wed.  If I don't get my front grass grown the county is probably going to fine me. (Grass was okay but then rained twice in about 4 days, then I work, and then I tried to over weekend and mower just wasn't having it.
 
Do people not realize how rude and inconvenient they are acting?  And I pay people well and in cash!

Yep, if it is over a certain height or if they can prove you haven't mowed it in a month.  Only know of a couple of people fined in my 17 years here but I don't want to push it.

When people have their car stopped in the middle of the road talking to someone! This happened at the entrance/exit to our local Stop & Shop. If you're going to talk to someone, pull the ***k over!

I can see if a homeowner always has tall grass, he should probably be fined or something, as tall grasses invite rats, and rats affect others.  That'd be the spirit of the law.  So, I'd hope your county understands that rather than just blindly invoking the word of the law.  Otherwise, it just seems like a way for the county to make money.

They do that around here.
 
Code Enforcement officers patrol all over the place & if they see that your grass is over a certain height, or if you have a junk car, etc., they'll put a wooden stake in your yard with a violation notice in a plastic sleeve stapled to it telling you that you have 15 days to correct whatever the violation is or they'll send somebody out to do it for you then send you the bill. A couple of days later, you get another copy via certified mail.

Confused
Went out for a 50-degree bike ride on my classy new geriatric 'Suntour', today.
Got a bad-ass surprise by one o'those GREENmobiles - maybe the largest black luxury sedan I've ever seen.
A brand new one.
Snuck up right behind me and scared the sh*t out of me, doncha know - all electric, not a sound, and there it was on my tail!
Not sure WHAT is was, I was so scared - about the size of a Cadillac, or something. Zipped right around me before I could cuss.
Nothing worse than a shock like that - pretty sure it was intentional.
I'll find the bastard, I swear!
I'll reverse his battery terminals.

I got a subpeona to testify once, but the DA didn't bother to tell me the case was settled out of court weeks earlier.  Good thing I called the day before the court date to verify.  Saved me a wasted day.  Still pisses me off that their attitude was "It's not our problem that we didn't notify you"....

Twice, I've lent things to neighbors and then caught them tossing the stuff away.
 
One neighbor was letting his Rastafarian lawn guy haul away the wheelbarrow I lent him.  I said "What the hell you doin'".  On top of that, the wheel on it had gone flat, and the neighbor said he'd replace it.  That was last year.  He still hasn't done it.
 
I lent another neighbor a bunch of painting supplies.  After he used the stuff, and I asked him for it back, he told me he'd just tossed it away---brushes, a roller and a metal paint-rolling pan.  Who would throw stuff like that in the garbage?  Then he asked if I wanted him to get it out of the garbage!  Duh.

Thor, I got one of those tires for my wheelbarrow that never goes flat--it costs a little more but for me it's worth it.  My old tire had a slow leak so I was constantly having to inflate it before using it.  I've had the "permanent" tire for over 5 years.  I consider it one of those best things I've ever bought items.

Thanks.  I'll relay that to Ken.  As far as him holding onto that wheelbarrow---that part I don't mind, as it's less crap in my yard.  Just don't throw it away!

More sh*t I don't like!

I hate it when people come on the bus or train with their nasty smelling food and start eating it as if they were at home. You can't wait a few stops to indulge in your crappy food? They open the container and start eating as if they are the only one in there. It's a confined space with limited air and you're stinking it up.

Speaking of stinking up, don't you just hate it when someone sits next to you on a bus or train and they positively REEK?! This always seems to happen to me - I'll be sitting alone when someone comes next to me reeking of food, cigarettes or worse, B.O.  For the duration of the ride, I have to hold my breath. Thanks for ruining my serenity, Stinky!

So the 90 degree temps are here, and just in time as the A/C here at work is currently OUT OF COMMISSION. Angry Should be fixed tomorrow though.  It better be.

Not only at home, but in the car as well which makes fuel economy take a hit.  Granted I still get good gas mileage with the A/C, but still.

Last year, despite the average summer temps being in the mid-90s, I only used my A/C about ten times.  Low humidity and overhead fans are great.
 
On top of that, the fog coming into San Francisco sends cool air inland to the Sacramento area, and at night, we get this "delta breeze".  When that happens, it's the best sleeping weather anywhere.  It could've been 100+ degrees out during the day, but at night, it turns to a breezy 60 degrees.

Writing checks!!! They stand there doing nothing until all items have been rang up, then pull out the check book. ARRRRRH! Many years ago when I still used checks I would fill out everything but the amount while waiting for the cashier.

Same here - I really don't like summer. I hate A/C - closing up the house gives me claustrophobia. Not to mention the heat and humidity. And the bees! Holy hopping Christ on a cracker - wasps, hornets, yellow jacks - no thanks.
 
The only way to enjoy summer (IMO) is to be parked on a beach 24/7.

I don't know which asshole decided that convertibles should have AC as an option but I'd like to roast his nuts with a blowtorch. Whoever bought my DelSol new was retarded. The car had like 4 optional extras. They took the spoiler but not the AC? The custom floor mats and paint matched rims I can understand but the AC?? Needless to say my car is hot as hell. I rarely take the targa off either because then the sun bakes me alive.

Whenever I tell people I'm having a July/August baby they always have some sort of comment about being pregnant in the summer. I understand why now. It's been like 75-80 here lately and I'm convinced the thermometer is wrong, it MUST really be 100. I'm in a constant sweaty state of grossness over here.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

^^  I can just see the idiot's conversation with the dealer when discussing options:

Dealer: "And the last option, sir?  You can choose between the rear spoiler, and of course air conditioning which is what I'd suggest since it would be cheaper to add a spoiler later on than and A/C system, and A/C would be more of a necessity than a luxury, especially come summertime."

Buyer: "A/C?? What the hell good is that gonna do for a car with no top?  Hello!  All the cold air will just blow out of the car! LOL some salesman.  A/C for a convertible makes as much sense as putting a screen door on a battleship."

Dealer: "Err .. don't you mean screen door on a submarine, sir?"

Buyer: "Whatever, just gimme the spoiler!"

Later, on a hot rainy July afternoon, stuck in the middle of bumper to bumper traffic ...

Owner: "Son of a bitch .. should've gotten air conditioning."
