No flak from me. I hate this, too. Though I cut the parents some slack. If they have multiple small children, they need all the slack they can get.

I hear this, although it bugs me more with a group of adults who feel the need to walk three abreast and are unwilling to break up their flying wedge when people are coming the other way.

Chris Robinson and another student at the Colorado Springs institution decided to print "The Monthly Bag" after seeing copies of a feminist and gender studies newsletter, "The Monthly Rag," in restrooms around campus.

The edition of "The Monthly Rag" that prompted action included an announcement for a talk on feminist pornography, information on gender-bending practices, and a tidbit about a myth involving male castration. According to Robinson, it was representative of what appears every month.

In response, Robinson and a friend created their flier, which provided tips on chainsaw etiquette, detailed a sexual position from Men's Health magazine and provided trivia about a sniper rifle "” what Robinson called information for the stereotypical macho man.Staff members removed The Bag within hours of receiving complaints that the publication was threatening.

Do you think it's worse when it's adults or when it's teenagers? I can see arguments for both.

If they're FACING me I get aggressive. They can see me coming, they're taking up the whole sidewalk, one of them will get out of the way. I can't think of any good passive-aggressive ways to rub someone's face in it when they're ahead of me and we're walking in the same direction, though, besides just cutting them off more than is strictly necessary.

I like when I see men pimping their babies in public for pussy. Reading Dr. Seuss extra loud on the metro, cooing the child's name, giving it a snack. It's so dubiously honest, and women just eat it up.

Yep.. that rule does exist, single file on the right. I'm patient, 5-10 seconds of saved time is insignificant, but I Will make the point to make my way through a gaggle of chubby waddlers idling on the escalator just as a matter of principle. Even when I know the person behind me has no intention of walking past me, I still stand on the right as a sign of recognition and respect, in case this man in his 70's or whomever decides to sprint up.

Another thing pissing me off- our garage is so filled with useless crap that I can't park in the garage, so now all the birds hanging out in the trees above my driveway can crap all over my car. Great.

This has got to be a joke. It is common practice to stand to the right on escalators in the metros. Not the mall or other places, but certainly the metros where people are commuting and need to be on their way.

You mean the mall, etc. right? Please tell me you do.

I guess I`m only the one that thinks there is no rule. I meant the subway, the mall, anywhere.

I don`t ride the subway much, but the other day I noticed a long traffic jam in front of the escalator. Everyone was trying to line up to one side, making the line just to get on the escalator rather long. I don`t see why everyone has to line up to one side, just so a few people can have the right of way on the other free side.

The escalator is a ride for people who don`t want to walk up the stairs, not a ride made for people who want to walk up the stairs faster.

Yesterday, my 8 month pregnant wife was driving her car when a fucking stoopid asshole in a bike, with a passenger riding tandem w/o a helmet swerved and cut her in front. My wife honked her horn and the stupid passenger banged his hand on the car's hood. My wife overtook her and the stupid asshole fuck tailgated her, so my wife slammed on the brakes and the guy hit the car, then sped off. My wife gave a chase and the guy sped up and lost control and slammed into a concrete barrier. Well, I'm not saying its a good thing these assholes came out with scratches, but then again if the damage was more then my wife would've been taken for questioning. The police came and these 2 ass-fucks were shouting and blaming my wife that it was her fault for slamming on the brakes. My wife was level headed enough to admit yeah, she slammed her brakes but its not her fault they were tailgating. The cop probably felt sorry for my wife, and offered to take these assholes in, but my wife let it go. She did kinda felt sorry the bike they were riding on got smashed up bad, but then she felt some pain in her abdomen which luckily subsided after a few minutes. Stupid asshole uneducated bikers.... next time something like that happens I'm gonna try taking them down myself.

Damn man, that's pretty fucked up. I wonder if they felt bad-- specially after seeing she was third trimester. At least she had the cool head to admit she had slammed on her brakes and everything.
