    What are the top 3 behavious that get you irritated?

    The ones that press my buttons, in reverse order are;

    3. People who sit on the inside seat of a bus and use the outside seat as bag storage.
    2. Dogs on long leashes in a crowded market
    1. People in cafes who take all 4 sections of the free newspaper - as if they can read them all at once

    People who clearly don't read the question properly before answering.

    People who forget what the real question was by the time they answer!

    1. Subwoofers in nearby vehicles loud enough to cause heart arrhythmia.
    2. Walking about talking aloud to no-one (bluetooth or just looney)
    3. Dead line phone calls (robocallers)

    Extra: spell checkers that don't recognize subwoofer bluetooth, looney or robocall as valid.

    People that charge into elevators before the people already inside have a chance to get out

    People who drive right thru/past "stop for pedestrian in crosswalk" signs as you stand there and watch them do it.

    People who use fake words in meetings such as "agreeyance"...ie. Are we all in "agreeyance"?

    I'm in agreeyance, aren't you?

    People that say they are approving something right now and it will be going right out. Two weeks later it still has not!

    What was the question, my brain cell misfired.

    Waiting for a delivery. It's in your city the night before. You are waiting eagerly at 7 am, at 5 pm the truck rolls up!

    People that don't think I'm important enough to return my phone calls.

    This will require a lot of thinking to narrow it down to three!

    But I am in 'agreeance' [who knew there was really such a word] about the loud music from vehicles and people talking on cell phones in public ANYwhere, but I have to really give it some thought to come up with the ones that get to me the most.

    1: People that hate me because I am paranoid.

    2: People always staring at me because I am self conscious.

    3: People always raising their voice to me because of my hearing problem.

    People who think dogs are people, too (and I like dogs; but, they're NOT people).
    Solicitors calling me.
    The continual (U.S.) political attack ads.

    I have finally concluded that the thing which irritates me the most is mis-use of words. The current popularity of saying "gifted" instead of 'gave' or 'has given'.

    I see it all the time in my various vintage sewing machine venues: "my husband GIFTED me a XXX for our anniversary". Arrrrgh.
