Not consumer complaints, just annoying observations...

I'm tired of people calling for directions and saying "I'm coming from I-10". When you ask if they're on the East or West side of town they have no clue. Guess what people, I-10 runs across the whole frickin' city!!!!

Almost reminds me of a Family Guy "You know what really grinds my gears..."

It would be nice if there was a mandatory review of the 4-way stop rule, perhaps annually.

Even a review of the lone stop sign would help...

Well, if there is bumper to bumper traffic on the road that has the right of way, it IS a stop sign because you have to yield until there is room to merge, or somebody takes pity on you and lets you in.

FYI, I-10 runs across the entire country.. I've actually been on every inch of it in both directions, except for the little part above NO.

My biggest annoyance is people comparing San Antonio to other places in a way that does not make sense, for instance 'The Mountains are so much better in Colorado' or 'NY style pizza is so much better in NY' etc...

It's worth noting I10 makes a weird dog leg just to make it to San Antonio.

I'd rather they do that, than to mindlessly ignore the yield. Which I see more often than not.
