Cool, but don't forget our members of the armed service as well, especially if eating while in uniform.

I do that also, normally at the airport. I don't come across many armed service members during my daily routine.

Reminds me of a recent idiot post I saw on FB. Guy admits to speeding then goes on a rant about how terrible of the person the cop is b/c he wasn't doing anything wrong to get a ticket. Moron, you admitted to speeding...

I confess that it was a sad day when i went to BPost front page, navigated as i always do to the “M4” tab, and instead of taking me straight to the F82 page i now have to choose whether i want to go to F82 or G82. Ain’t nobody want to read about that ugly ass G82

back to confessions....

At my office building, if somebody gets in the revolving door and is just putzing along texting on their phone, I push a little harder so they get hit in the back of their feet and wake them up.

Confession: when I sit behind someone at a red light or turn arrow, right before our lane is about to get the green light/arrow, I put my hand on the horn button. I assume that the driver in front of me will be unhappy with the initial shade of green of the light, and will wait several seconds in the hope that a more pleasing shade will take its place; perhaps one that better coordinates with their tie or their nail polish.

That assumption is correct more often than it's wrong, unfortunately. If your vehicle isn't in motion in about 1.5 seconds after one or another shade of green appears on that light, you're going to get the horn. I've been at green turn arrows where every fucking drooling dolt in front of me took a 4-5 second nap, and despite 10 or 15 of us having been queued up, only 3 or 4 made it through before the arrow went back to red. It's pure stupidity and extremely rude. I'm sorry their lives are so empty and meaningless that the passive-aggressive act of making a bunch of other people sit through a green light seems like a really fun thing to do, but it irritates the fuck out of me.

Oh, and if we're a half-mile down the road one of these zombies wants to get into my lane, they are 100% fucked. Not going to happen.

Oh boy - where's the I got into it with a few members on this exact same topic, might even be in this thread. I got flamed for being the one with my hand on the horn if you don't move when the light changes. Let's see where this one goes.

EDIT: I think it was the pet peeve thread.

If someone thinks it's wrong or silly for me to be pissed about having my time wasted senselessly, bring it on. Maybe they think their time is worthless; mine is definitely not.

Reminds me of this pic I posted a little while back. But I too will use the horn if I feel I've sat there too long...but I usually allow a grace period of about 2-3 seconds.

I don't hit the horn the instant the light turns but if after 2 seconds you don't move, I'm on the horn.

When you're sitting at a red light, your only purpose in the entire fucking world is to watch that light and get the fuck moving the very instant it turns any color that even vaguely resembles green. Nothing else. Not fucking around on your phone, not daydreaming or staring up into space. Not ogling Lolita standing over there on the curb. Just watch the fucking light. If that mission is beyond someone's capabilities, then they belong on public transportation or in an Uber or a Lyft or a rocking chair.
