    Don't get me started on Comcast's predatory billing practices if you choose to leave them. You can leave them, but you won't like the ordeal.

    Oh, this isn't pissing me off, but I am scratching my head here. Guy in my office has a shiny black SUV with 120,000 miles, and he's complaining about his transmission. I ask when's the last time he changed his trans fluid? He hasn't. Then he complains that the shop down the street wants $100 to change his trans fluid. Huh? Have you priced a new transmission on this shiny black SUV lately? You know the one for which you're still upside-down? Hello???

    Simple freakin' economics here, people. If you can't afford to pay the shop, you'd better budget for some wrenches and a service manual or move in next to a mechanic.

    Also pissing me off: crappy courier services. When I say "rush" I don't mean "by all means, make a few other stops if they're sorta on the way. Sure, 'by 11am' can be loosely interpreted to mean 'sometime today.'" Asshole.

    Comcast. We pay for the sports package so I can watch soccer. This includes both FSC and GolTV. Today I can get FSC but the GolTV screen says that I'm not subscribed. How can their computers recognize that I pay for the sports package and then transmit a contradictory signal? When I call to enquire, the customer service rep I am connected to, mysteriously has her computer "refreshing" so she has no access to any information. Then why did you pick up the phone? Let someone else answer it. I ask her to transfer me to a CS rep who has a working computer. She can't do that--not technically possible. So I ask her to transfer me to her "supervisor". She says she can't, but that she can transfer me to her "manager." WTF? Same person, obviously dumb-ass. Ugh. Shit CS.

    I've been paying for cable for four months, at least, without getting any picture. I never get around to calling them to fix it because I don't want to deal with making an appointment.

    People who can't sit through a two-hour concert without constantly sending and receiving text messages on their mobiles. I had to tell some guy to put his blackberry away at a concert last night because the glare from it kept flashing in my eyes.

    Whoever effing invented effing SMSing is a bigger douchebag than anybody who might win our SF DB poll.

    Don't blame the blackberry. Blame the parents.

    Non stop loud chatter coming from a bunch of Latino males at my GYM.
    Can they ever stfu?

    People who clear their throat or cough in the middle of the musical performance instead of waiting for a pause or intermission.
    Fucking peasants.

    People walking slow in the mall. The mall is not the place to take a casual stroll when you have people like me rushing to get down to Nordstrom.

    JB, I feel for you. My wife and I have been in the Annapolis mall more times than I can count, waiting behind these mosey-ing MFs who will not speed up. Damn people, I don't want to waste my life in this mall. (Though it is much nicer now that they've expanded.)
