    I HATE it when...

    1.) Lawn service guys direct their dust/grass clippings into traffic with leaf blowers, conveniently at your car as you drive past.

    2.) The moron driving in front of you gets windshield washer fluid happy at anything over 40mph, even though you leave ~10 car lengths to prevent rock chips, the overspray still finds its way to your car.

    3.) The random stray black cloud on a day that's forecasted to be perfectly sunny...and it just so happens to be floating over you and only you and needs to empty its bladder.

    4.) The infamous hose running from the backyard swimming pool to the street emptying like 400 gal/min, creating a small river like environment that you must cross with your freshly detailing vehicle.

    5.) birds. nuff said.


    add to this if you want.

    +100 to all of the above.

    Ill add a couple

    6. Puddles of standing water in the road that don't dry up even after I've waited for days without rain.

    7. Trees/ plants with lots of pollen

    8. (somewhat related) People who honk when I go slowly over speed bumps.

    9. Trucks that dump cans of paint on the road leaving a giant puddle of wet paint.

    10.) Bugs hover the perfect height over the road and await your car as they choose their final resting place right in your f'in grill/ front end.

    11.) Obese American's who cannot open their doors without first touching their car door to the one next to it, then putting all their weight on their own door to help lift their disgusting lard infested body out of their seat. Door dings make me so angry.

    I happen to weigh more than I should. I have yet to ding into a door or get a door ding into my WRX. Pretty insensitive of you to generalize like that.

    I thnk it is more of an issue with the W I D E SUVs and trucks taking up too much parking space.

    LIAR!!! Admit it, your dinging doors as we speak!!



    I think the major issue is that most people think that if their within in the lines their parked fine, but you really need to be centered in order to have proper door opening room. It's worse with big cars.

    15. Trucks with uncovered loads.

    16. Trucks that kick up rocks.
