There isn't a lot that really bothers me but...

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 get annoyed when people shopping just stop dead on, in front of you to talk with one another and block the aisles. Even worse, when they stop right in front of the exit doors and will not move unless YOU specifically say, "Excuse me." Seems like quite a few shoppers have little or no consideration for anyone else.

I am totally completely intolerant of people smoking anywhere near me. Thankfully my state has some of the toughest anti-smoking laws in the country when in public places but inside a private home is another matter. If someone lights up, I do politely but firmly say that I need to make an exit (and I do, if they don't put the cancer stick out immediately.) This from someone who once had to put up with living with a smoker once upon a time.

People who reek of perfume, body sprays or what smells like 10 gallons of fabric softener. I have fragrance allergies that have gotten much worse as I've aged and after going through chemo. If I find myself near a "reeker", I relocate myself even if I have to switch chairs.

No outdoor shoes worn inside my house, for the past 15 years. People either need to remove their shoes on the mat just inside the door, or use disposable shoe covers that I provide. That goes for everyone, every time. No exceptions. If it's a situation were someone needs to go in and out repeatedly, then I cover the floors along the route with mats and/or RamBoard ahead of time.

People who get sloppy or obnoxious when they drink. I've put up with enough idiots like that in my lifetime and I won't do it any more.

People who cough or sneeze in their hands.

People who still use a handkerchief to blow their nose. Why not a tissue and toss it?

Crappy TV shows. When I was younger, I would sit in front of the TV and just watch whatever came on, no matter how stupid it was, can't believe I wasted so much time on that.

Nowadays if a show isn't high quality, I won't even glance at it.

People who enter the freeway at 40 mph and then take a half mile to get going.

People that get me or my husband sick. We in general don’t get sick, but if these people get sick and spread to us, it wouldn’t be cool. We stay at home when we sick.

People driving cars who wait, then pull out in front of you then either slow to a crawl or turn at the next intersection.

People driving cars who make a left right in front of you then slow waaaay down when entering the drive or parking lot.

Rude people in general.

People who neglect their children or pets.
