    People not washing their hands after going to the toilet.
    there's a woman in my department that does this. every other woman has outed her. we now have a "big spoon only-no hands in the bowl" on treat days because we don't wish to fill our mouths with urine-soaked M&M's.

    I realize that pretty much anything that involves waiting annoys me :lol:

    people who walk slowly in front of me, especially groups of people that are walking slowly and how the sidewalk, not allowing you to pass

    people who drive slowly on the fast lane, and incidentally, people who stand on the left on the escalators

    drivers who do not signal, over zealous drivers, drivers that tailgate

    people who do not use their time in line (sometimes several minutes) to decide what they want to order and then proceed to ask a million questions and/or take a good chunk of time to make up their minds

    people who ask for a million changes on their food order - e.g. could I have that salad, but hold the cheese and the nuts, and put more tomato, and can I exchange lettuce for spinach and change the salmon for a white fish that is less fatty, and while you are at it add cucumber and ... sure, just make your own salad while you are at it.

    loud chewers/eaters - although not as annoying to me as the above options

    I'm sure I can think of more, but this is plenty.

    Major pet peeve: Guys showing off with their vehicles thinking it makes them look cool or tough.

    My wife and I were standing in a dirt and gravel parking lot today getting ready to go for a walk.  All of the sudden, this dude in his majorly oversized beefed up American truck suddenly spun donuts and took off, kicking up a huge cloud of dust and shooting out rocks that hit several parked cars and just missed hitting me and my wife.  What a jerk!  I wish I could have gotten his license number of a photo of his vehicle.

    there's a woman I work with (yes, another), who is like the food order person you described. She is a NIGHTMARE to go out for lunch with. I hate sitting next to her. She asks for a million subsititutions, and almost always sends it back anyway and treats the wait staff like shit like they cooked it. I will never understand why someone like that even bothers going out to eat. 

    don't sit next to my wife when she's eating a banana. sounds like intercourse.

    Buru, right on!

    I am sick and tired of the weather folks on the news telling me how to dress based on the forecast.  Just give me the goddamn weather; I'm pretty sure I know when a jacket or light clothing or an umbrella may be needed.  They treat us as if we're idiots or children, or both.

    And!

    These custom closet commercials - "my friends and I can sit in here and drink wine and look at my clothes and shoes".  I don't want to look at your shitty wardrobe.  I don't want to hang out in your closet.  Screw drinking with you too.

    Okay, I sooo need to sit next to your wife while she eats a banana. Don't blame me.

    As far as your coworker, I tend to call those people out with sheer pleasure. I'll follow up their order with apologizing, or I will order my meal just as it is on the menu and ask the server if it's okay that I don't make all the changes, or when ordering, I will clearly say something that is a mockery that the complicated person did, just to make the server know it's okay to laugh. Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with 1 or maybe 2 changes, but beyond that on a routine basis just comes across wrong to me I guess.

    dude, if you ain't doin' it, you don't want to hear it. TRUST ME ON THIS. 

    I actually do call her out! I jokingly say to the waitress after she orders "be warned: she's a nightmare to serve" or "don't worry about it; she's going to send it back no matter what" or something to the effect. 
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 11,357
    Yeah, I'd call her out too.  I have only seen fictitious depictions of said behavior, I think I would damage whatever sort of relationship I had with the person pretty severely because I would not be kind lol

    Fine, I'll take your word. But...I don't even know what to say. 

    Nice job on calling her out. I have never figured out why people sometimes act so high and mighty when they are ordering a meal. Maybe they have never worked in the food industry before? We're the fed from a silver spoon and always got what they wanted without regard to how it may affect someone else? Do they think the task of taking a slice of tomato off a burger is far to challenging? Do they simply take pleasure from getting to boss somebody else around? I don't know why people insist on doing it, but it is rude and disrespectful. Or maybe it's because I grew up super poor so I'll friggn eat damn near anything.

    last time we went out for lunch when the waitress came to ask if she was finished, she said "yeah, I can't eat that (salad)". YOU CAN BE POLITE ABOUT IT. it's not the waitress' fault that it's not up to your expectations. 

    she's actually usually a very nice person, fine to work with. but for some reason she just treats wait staff like "the help". she doesn't look them in the eye, barks out her order, and demands that things be put on the side (dressings, etc) and basically berates them about it like it was already fucked up. it's weird. 

    But I bug her all the time about how she's a horrible customer and I feel sorry for husband. LOL
