    Did you lose paint? If not, see if you can find someone who does PDR (paintless dent removal). I’m amazed what can be removed using this method—especially stupid stuff like carts and car door dings. It’s usually a lot cheaper than traditional paint repair.

    So today my pet peeve is about people starting their sentences with the word So.

    So why is it people preface their comments with the word So.

    No show socks with long pants.

    Also, tennis shoes with a suit.

    My pet peeve is people trying to get on an elevator before allowing the people already on the elevator to get off.

    This isn't hard people.

    And my other pet peeve of the moment is drivers that don't understand the basic concept of how a four way stop works.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    could do a long and detailed post on driving (probably have) - folks that can't grasp how to merge onto the interstate, which lane is for passing, motorcycles, etc.

    Lately, it's the assholes who are driving faster than everyone else and weaving in and out, and sometimes driving with a friend in another car doing the same, seeing who can get to where they're going faster.

    Last night on my way home saw a couple of cars doing just that, one got stuck in the right lane, and the other was pulled over by a cop a few exits up. That put a smile on my face.

    When I see people doing that, I wonder if it's these young kids who have played too many video games.

    A few of my with drivers

    Cutting me off on a road and then proceeding to go the speed limit or below. Meanwhile nobody was behind me so you could have went after I had passed but no you had to cut me off.

    While on a double laned road, you are in the right lane. Nobody is to the left of you and you have ample warning that the light will be red. You stay in the right lane knowing full well you are not turning right on red but are now going to be camped out there. You could have went into the left lane prior to the light changing but no. Meanwhile people behind you who want to turn right have to wait

    Cars that are purposely made loud with custom mufflers. I get it. You need to announce to the public that your car is awesome by being loud. You want to make women in a quarter mile radius to instantly become moist by hearing your automotives mating call.

    Cars that decide that music sounds best with just bass. Can't hear anything but the bass. Again I assume its so you want women to start squirting when they hear that sweet music eminating from your kickbox

    you talking about pulling out of a side road or parking lot? yeah, i hate that immensely. long line of nobody behind me but you have to pull out in front of me and then take a half an hour to get up to speed. Same thing with merging - if you are going to pull onto the highway in front of me, make sure you are going as fast as or faster than me. I do try to get over when i see someone coming up the ramp and it looks like we could get to the end of it at the same time, but sometimes it's just not possible.

    and yeah, the loud music people? I've had people pull into the gas station where the sound is rattling the gas pumps. Sorry, there is no way you are enjoying your music when it's that loud and distorted. You are just trying (and succeeding) to be annoying.

    I know this one. It's been going on a long time, but it seems as if the tech boom is responsible for the version that tends to annoy people. Often time it references some sort of connection to earlier conversation or that one has been thinking about/has had concern about the topic. Example, "So how is that class going?" It indicates closeness and concern to the speaker.

    The way it tends to annoy people is when it is used to begin an answer to a question, often times when the answer is more complicated than the question indicates, such as a "yes and no" answer to a "yes or no question," or more nuance to a Who/What/When/Why answer, often associated with the historical present tense (giving a backstory but telling it in the present tense, a la "Why are you late?" "So, I'm driving down the road when all of a sudden I see a zebra--a zebra!" running along the road. So then I pull over..."

    This seemed to be common in Silicon Valley about 25 years ago and that's probably where this usage gained popularity.
