My tolerance is about the same from earlier ages. My policy: It's not what happens to me it's how I react.
Hate stupid, unsafe drivers.
Do not tolerate rude people in my life, no second chances, one and done.
Do not waste time doing things I don't enjoy just because someone wants me to.

I am 60-something, not near death at all, no illness, but ask myself often: if I only had a month to live would I be doing this (whatever it is) today?
Old age has made me more self-ish. I used to be more generous, optimistic about other people and open-minded.
There is virtue in pursuing what I think is important and cutting out the chaff.
I am kind and tolerant of children, animals and good-hearted adults.

I detest people that blow their nose at the table in restaurants, IMO it is beyond rude and disgusting.

It also bothers me that when people have the flu etc....they go in public places spreading it. There was a lady in HEB recently and all she did was cough all over the produce when I saw her and didn't even bother covering her mouth. She was asking the produce man about something and even shared she was running a fever, he said you know we can deliver so you don't have to come in and share it, she just laughed.

I also hate seeing dogs chained in yards, that's no kind of life for an animal. It just my opinion but I feel if someone really wants a dog, they should keep it inside or have a fenced yard.
I canít imagine anyone disagreeing with anything you said, and if they do I am certainly not tolerant of them.

I've become intolerant of Snowboarders -- aka Knuckle Draggers. Pants around their thighs instead of their waist. They are like locusts coming out on the slopes on a nice powder day, ruining the experience for everyone else as they show off, ride erratically, not caring at all about cutting other people off. They think they're cool; the rest of us think they are jackasses. That's one reason I frequent Deer Valley and Alta: they have a no-snowboarders policy.

Oh yeah I'm I've grown intolerant of cheap and moderately priced wine. It doesn't always need to be Screaming Eagle or Ch‚teau Margaux or a Petrus, but I'm done with sub-$100 bottles of wine.

I've also grown intolerant of single grain Scotch whisky, blended malt Scotch whisky (formerly called "vatted malt" or "pure malt"), blended grain Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky. For me, I want an excessively aged single malt Scotch whisky or nothing. It should be an Islay, a Highland, or even a Speyside.

Bourbon? That's for washing engine parts.

Sorry, I just can't agree with this...

Are you talking about the single-ply stuff? How could anybody use that stuff? I gave our Costco TP to the cleaning ladies for their personal use. I have always paid the extra dollar for premium-grade TP ever since.

12-year old bourbon is to die for. Sipping a little Costco small-batch bourbon as I type.

I think incivility covers it all. Otherwise I am fine with life.

Being nice and decent and thoughtful goes a long way in this world.

As each day passes I despise social media more and more, especial twitter and FB. I can't stand it when people start using a word with that "hashtag" phrase. I just want to punch them in the face. I'm also starting to detest that "metoo" movement. Initially I believe they started out with a noble cause now they are just a bunch of attention seekers looking to keep their name in the public eye.

As far as people goes, I can't stand the people that wear headphones or looking at their phones while walking or riding their bikes on the street. Here in NYC you need to be Extremely careful. There are scaffolding everywhere, reckless cabbies and drivers, construction all over the place and other careless people walking. You need to be alert at all times and these clowns are walking around oblivious to the world.

I get infuriated when I see people talking on their phones when driving their car.
I can't stand parents that don't watch over their rude kids when at the park. When I take my son to the park I'm all over him and if he dared to be rude or nasty to another kid I'll take him away and apologize to the kid and parent he was mean to. This is why we moved to the suburbs. In the inner city you deal with a lot of lazy, incompetent or just uncaring parents that just don't give a chit what their kids do and let them run amok.

I can't stand generational poor people cry poverty and never, ever think to better themselves and are always looking for a handout. When my parents brought us to this country (legally BTW) we did not have a lot of money. We were very poor and had trouble getting by my parents never wanted us to relay on others so they made sure we all got educations and made something of ourselves. I have several other family members that also came into this great country legally and we're all doing very well financially and do not require govt assistance. And I'm very proud of my family for that.

I've said this before in several other threads but I'll keep saying it, but my wife and I are very concerned about the world we are bringing our children into. This world really is going to crap. People are way too sensitive. You can lose everything for a simple mistake thanks to that vile social media. People have become worse. We are over populating the world with little opportunities for our youth. The poor people in the world are reproducing at an alarming rate and no one seems to realize this. Something must be done and no one is doing anything about it.
