Women in line in front of you at a checkout who wait until they're told the final amount before they even BEGIN to open their handbag...then their purse...then their change purse...

Next, they look back at the amount, then their brain engages (really, if it's quiet, you can hear it!), then OMFG, here it comes, they begin to speak----interrogatively!

I can't stand when they fumble for minutes in their purse looking for the exact change. Upon waiting ridiculous amounts of time, I have been know to hand the cashier a dollar and tell them to keep the change.

Mary, I saw that you had posted a response and thought, "Oh, crap! She's gonna hit me with the 'MCP baton' for that!" Whew!

You can still hit me with a baton. Just please change the label(s). Thank you.

- people who dont hold the door for you or say "thanks" when holding it open for them
- door to door salesmen/door marketers. You were not invited. Stay away
- commission sales people.
- commission sales people who do not give you the final price untill your ready to sign the deal and then say " oh... you also must pay this/that and everything else on top of what I quoted you. "
- loud mufflers
- Tapout wannabe MMA punks who wear white framed sunglasses
- motorcycle riders who park at Tim Hortons and wear all the gear to think thier tough ass Hells Angel wannabees
- people who use products only to put back on the shelf for thier own pleasure ( ie... deoderant, hand lotion, ect... )

People who pull out in front of you in traffic, then drive slow.
People who quickly speed up to fill the gap when you put your blinker on to change lanes.
