Men and women are equally bad drivers, it's just that women are bad in little irritating ways, and men are bad in terrifying, life-threatening ways.

That depends on the definition of bad, female drivers make less accidents.

Women are more passive and lower on spacial recognition, also prone to screaming and covering their eyes when something bad is about to happen.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I can honestly say I've never opened the door at a drive through, nor even seen anyone do it when I've been with them, male or female.

Where the **** are you people living?

Also roundabouts are 100x better than 4 way stops but they aren't used much in the US because lolUS.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

roundabouts are all over here now (NE side of Indy) and they are awesome. Some brutal 4-way stops and stop lights on my route to work have been replaced with roundabouts over the past few years and my commute is much better now.

How, when advertising, every store or company uses the Buy one get one free idea as if it's new and they invented it. This is either done by them explaining the idea or calling it something else to make it look like a new concept. This is especially annoying since every shopper has been aware of this sort of offer since at least the 60s.

Too lazy to google but I thought they had more accidents per mile (women drive substantially fewer miles) but less fatalities per mile(more minor, fewer major)

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I have 5 of these banging chocolate bars in the fridge.

Me: I want one of those chocolate bars
Girlfriend: Yeah, me too.
Me: Cool, I'll grab you one too.
Girlfriend: Can't I just have some of yours?
Me: FFFUUUUUUUUUU

Seriously, what if I want a whole one? If you want one too, eat one of your own, or eat half of another one and save the rest, I don't care. It happens with all manner of things, not just stuff like chocolate bars. Makes no sense.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

wrt to roundaabouts/rotataries, they are awesome when properly implemented.

Some years ago the city replaced a four-way stop in my neighborhood with a roundabout.
Keep in mind this is two normal, two-lane residential streets. TBH, there isn't really a need for a four-way; I've been living here more than a decade and probably only have met another car there in the tens of times.

Anyway, the city built some kind of big ol' planter sort of thing in the middle, and made it a roundabout one spring. Looked nice, kept people from having to stop unnecessarily.

Until, of course, the fall came and the school bus couldn't make the narrow turn. Doh!

It pisses me off more when they have the right of way and they stop for me to go first.
