Americans in Okinawa.
Well, sure, but if I misplace a comma or make another error, I'm not doing it because I'm a rude person, I probably did it because I messed up, or I didn't quite know the grammar rules for it.
Also people who say "OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST/FASCIST"
It gets old REAL fast.
Or when they are a smaller mass and weave out of a side street without looking/thinking and i have to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting them (has happened)
I get what your saying, but its one of my ultra pet peeves. bikers that think they can take such a wide berth
Close your eyes and smile.
[15:53] <PizzaSHARK> you have such a cute accent! ^_^
the use of the word "swag" (swag is a shorten version Secretly We Are Gay) the use of "yolo"
Iphones and the dumbasses that waste money on apple products
Most new rap artists that ruined hip hop (I miss real hip hop )
and what really grinds my gears elitists of every kind
the english language and its grammar are insane. as long as you can spell most words (i will often forgive for words like anaesthetic, or other long-ish uncommon words) you are fine by me.
i finding capitalising letters to be somewhat pointless, especially when typing on a keyboard where holding shift causes a bit of wrist pain. and i'm not going to hit caps lock twice for it. are my sentences less meaningful or that much harder to read because the beginning letter is not a different case?
as for what irks me.. hmm. apart from silly things like the word 'garbage,' i suppose one thing that happens many, many times on every single day.. people who do not indicate on a roundabout.
Don't get me wrong, being elderly doesn't mean I hate you, but some really annoy me.
Particularly how some believe they deserve everything because they're old. For example, I've had elderly people cut in line before for various queues, one I asked what he was doing and he responded "I've spent most of my life waiting I deserve this much at least".
And then there was an uproar when in my area the elderly weren't allowed to use their complimentary bus pass before 9AM, suddenly outraged that they had to pay to use a public service, one that put the 9AM rule in place because the majority of their customers were the elderly riding the bus for free and on a route by route basis, they costs to keep the bus running weren't being met.
That annoyed me. Fair enough, retire, you've lived a long and (Probably) hectic life, but don't think you own the world or have the right to be raised above those younger.
Maybe I'm being too harsh, I don't know, but either way, it grinds my gears when I see the elderly get away with so much for no good reason, at least in my books.
If you spend your entire life getting senpai to notice you, you'll never notice anyone else.
Again, I think you're hung up on the idea that one person makes a slight error is the same as just absolutely trashy written posts.
I don't care. I want to walk on the pavement without dodging vehicles. I don't drive my car on there at 10mph and say my reaction times make it fine. Scooters can't go on there. A vehicle does not need a motor - bikes are clumsier and can really bloody hurt.I'd say it depends on speed, if you're talking about racing style bicycles that can speed along like a car, then yes. Personally when I ride a bike I prefer to go at a leisurely pace (I don't very often), so there is 0 chance of me hitting anyone unless my reaction time is over 30seconds.
Get on the very side of the road at all times and let people with pushchairs and pedestrians and people walking animals be safe.

In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
It's kind of an inbuilt thing for me though. It would feel unnatural for me not to use capital letters.
Liberals is less than ten characters, so, Liberals.
1. Any person saying skinny women aren't real women.
2. Anyone that hates on the rich being rich, shut up nothing is wrong with that.
3. People that say I'm (or someone else is) delusion because I think I can become rich one day, really how stupid.
4. People that kill kids. Killing people in general makes me sad, but when it's a kid I get very angry and imagine myself becoming a vigilante and killing them in the same way they killed the kid, hahaha.
5. People that cut me off, I always get the urge to drive them off the road...lol.
6. Broncos doing bad the first half making me sad, then suddenly doing good. They've been doing this for last 2 seasons, it's driving me crazy.
7. Slow people at a drive thru, hello why are you here if you are going to take forever!
8. 3 open lanes at walmart during prime shopping times, really walmart please make the commercial a reality.
9. People that hate on SUV's.
10. Dumb Europeans that assume everyone in US is fat, especially folks from UK, hello you're not far behind!
No hockey season so far. Fuck both sides for not coming to an agreement.
Turning into the wrong lane (ie: not turning into the closest lane. You may turn into one, and only one lane, even when there are more than one lanes available. It's dangerous and stupid.
Also not turning when your turn lane is open but the other lane has cars. (Then I know you're an idiot before even turning, AND you're needlessly making others wait.)
Not using your blinker properly.
(quick look->blinker->long look to make sure open-> turn)
NOT: look+turn+blinker at same time.
If you don't blink, you're not getting in my lane. I'm not going to guess what's in your head even though I have a good idea.
People that refuse to merge properly. It's not that they don't know how, I know they know how because somehow they passed the driver's test. Everyone knows how to merge properly. The ones that refuse to do it correctly need to be slapped. You do NOT have the right of way coming from an on-ramp. No one is required to let you in. People already on the highway are not supposed to adjust their speed AT ALL to accomodate you. It is YOUR job to find an opening and merge in by adjusting your speed. If the person already on the highway adjusts their speed, it makes it difficult and more dangerous for the person on the on-ramp to judge merging.
Blocking traffic in the left lane. The right lane can go any speed that's legal. The left lane may not block traffic by going the same speed as the person in the right lane no matter the speed. It is the person in the left lane's job to make sure he doesn't block traffic. If that means speeding up or slowing down, then so be it.
Braking on the highway without due cause. This also includes braking for the off-ramp before being fully on the off-ramp. You're causing every car behind you that is still on the highway to brake for no reason, creating traffic flux, and in heavier traffic areas, much problems.

Misusing the word "so" and "such" by not completing the sentance.
ex) That's so hot ... (that?)
"So" is a comparative adjective. You need to compare it to something else you're using it incorrectly. The word you should be using if you don't complete the sentance is most likely "very."
ex) That's very hot. (complete sentance)
Correct use of the word "so:"
ex) People that misuse that word make me so angry I wish I could slap them in the head.
Correct use of the word "such:"
ex) These chips are such a success at the party that I'm going to make sure I buy them for every party.
People that disrespect you by interrupting. I talk, you talk. See how that works?
People that refuse to answer a question with a direct answer.
People that refuse to respond to a logical argument and think they refuted the argument by bringing up something unrelated. Argument stands until disproved.
Lack of teaching logic and reasoning in schools.
Saying your opinion is fact when it's just an opinion and cannot yet be determined to be true or false, or it is subjective in nature.

Also, the exit only lane is the exit only lane, if there are enough people behind them to cause traffic problems due to braking, there are a lot of people who need to learn to drive.
