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.

I know what you mean. That is why THIS woman uses a debit card most of the time.

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 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.
