People that smoke, people that are drunk in public, homeless people/panhandlers, people that yell at their kids, people that let their kids run crazy in public, people that park in fire lanes, people that don't use turn signals, people that stalk you for a parking space at the mall, receipt checkers at Walmart, neighbors who leave their trash cans out after trash day, people that do 50 mph in a school zone when the lights are flashing, people that swear or have vulgar conversations in public, fat women that where spandex leggings, people who don't clean up their dog's crap when they are walking it

Not necessarily. But if this person is experiencing all of this in one place, it sounds like they need to relocate!

Perhaps you were using satire, but one is forced to tolerate dimwits, the unknowledgeable and very ill-informed, the uneducated, those with low IQ's, the mentally unbalanced and outright mentally ill, those with personality disorders, the backward, those who never read in life/non-readers, fanatics, those with offensive beliefs, those lacking in mental acuity, the very odd etc when posting on City-Data forums and other online forums....if one wants to continue to post and read.

I can’t stand people that show up 15 minutes early and text right away saying they are there already. Text on time if we haven’t met up yet

This post was in response to the expression "to suffer fools." It's only an expression. It's a somewhat common old expression and not meant to be a swipe at the mentall ill,low IQ, etc. I can't look it up or c&p right now, but I do feel that it's a bebign expression and it's what the person can't tolerate.

I'm not bothered at all by the expression, i'm completely aware of the expression, and I know what it means, and I'm not bothered at all by the way the poster used it, whether she/he meant it in satire or not - both are fine. I think you probably did not understand my post though, since your response does not speak to anything I said or meant.

People that only talk about "how busy they are". It a single topic that they bring up every single time you see them and drone on and on about "just being too busy".

Victimhood. Being a victim apparently makes you a hero or right. Everybody is doing it it seems. It's a disease.
