    There are people that approach car maintenance that way. They will keep posting until they get the answer they want for there car problem.

    Never mind that their perception of the problem has nothing to do with reality. Hell. Eventually someone will post that is as stupid as me.

    People who let their dogs bark uncontrollably is my #1...I wanna drag them outside & slap the bejeezus outta them till my arm aches.

    Rap & hip hop "music"

    Women who use the "vocal fry" affectation

    Southern Rock

    Southern accents

    Commercials (I DVR everything; no longer watch TV in "real time".)

    People who give their kids "trendy" or ridiculous "exotic" names that no one can remember. (pretty much everyone nowadays with kids)

    When you drive over a freshly paved road, and you hear the little pebbles bouncing around in the wheel wells for the next couple miles.

    "New" country music

    Feminists (#1 on my "love to offend" list)

    New country is the worst. Remember Blue Grass? It is simple, honest and unsophisticated. A little corny maybe but I actually like it.

    New country is Bluegrass trying to be sophisticated which comes across as extremely corny and kinda putrid. There are folks that believe they ruined The Grand Old Opry when it went with drums and amplification.

    I can't stand it when someone tells me the guitar is already "set up" as a selling point...

    I don't remember you asking me what string brand and gauges I like, or how I like my action set, or what the humidity level is where I live....

    Neighbors that install an outside light fit for a shopping center parking lot, in a post on the corner of his property, 100 feet from his house.

    Talk to said neighbor, try to make him understand that we live in the country and the 3 neighbors don't want to have to put blinds in their windows to be able to sleep at night.

    He pisses on you.

    Tell him I like to see the stars ... everybody likes stars.

    Piss on you.

    Mention that bylaws forbid this kind of light in the neighborhood.

    Piss on you.

    Complain to the city.

    They give him a warning.

    Piss on them.

    City sends a fine.

    He doesn't pay it.



    I buy a BB gun and sharpen the chain on the chainsaw as backup.

    I think we would get along rather well.

    But I would have started with the BB gun.

    Leaning a guitar against something and wondering why it fell and the headstock broke off.

    When the keyboard player in your jazz band is overpowering everyone and tells you to turn down your little practice amp.

    Yeah I may have the knob on my amp at 10, but the knob on my guitar is at 4! :mad:
