    Don't...

    ...wave me through. I don't want to get hit by that other car.


    ...hold the elevator for stragglers. That's why they're so damn slow!


    ...move in front of my bike at the stoplight after I just passed you. I hope you can bunny hop a curb.


    ...pass my car on the highway and then slow down to my exact speed. I'm not resetting my freaking cruise control - it's right where I want it!


    ...flub the punch line. Way to ruin a good joke.

    I love that one... It is amazing how often it happens to me...

    ... zip around me like I am standing still just to take the exit that I pass before you are even completely off the freeway

    ... honk your horn .02 seconds after the light turns green (Hint: If the red light hasn't faded completely yet, it is too soon to honk).

    ... smoke within 10 feet of non-smokers outside, it is just as bad as smoking in a no smoking section.

    ... let your kid scream in public, if you can't control the child, stay home until you can.

    ... send me those stupid emails that tell me that if I send it to everyone I know and get it back at least three times I am loved... I don't need the validation, and whether I like you or not, you aren't getting it back from me.

    ... be so negative that you have as long a list of these as I do.

    Don't

    ... expect to pick me up with my bike and expect to stuff it into your car. That's how it scratches -I'll meet you (which I stated in the first place).


    ... ask me 15 times what I want. Do you want something to drink. "no thanks I'm fine". Milk? "no, I'm fine". Wine? "no XXX, thank you I don't want anything". Beer? (family dinners are something out of an old comedy show sometimes).

    ... ever offer a person who has nothing ---- something if they are able to create a letter, flyer, etc for you and then forget about payment. Hurts badly when you have nothing.

    ... pass me then slow down right in front of me (or 20 feet in front of me) because you're Fred and biting off more than you can chew

    ... stand outside the only exit to the building with 12 other smokers

    ... assume I meant what you wanted to hear as opposed to what I actually said

    ... bring a knife to a *** fight

    ... ask me to help you change your flat when you haven't cleaned your bike in 6 months and don't carry the necessary tools to do the job

    ... be the self-appointed "commander of the MUP" and feel the need to enforce your imaginary rules

    ...drive the wrong way on the interstates, especially flyovers. When in doubt, in the US the yellow line is on the left, white line is on the right.

    ...drive the wrong way on a one way street just to make a quick go from one place to another.

    ...come to a party and talk politics through the whole thing. Politics are great for P&R, but when I come to a party, I care more about plenty of other things than the same old stuff.

    ...change a baby's diaper on a table in a restaurant in front of everyone, then leave the soiled diaper on the table when leaving.

    ...demand "computer people" come over to "fix" a computer if you are just going to uninstall the antivirus utilities, and browse the same porn sites with IE instead of Firefox.

    ...randomly turn around in crowded halls, then give nasty looks when you bump someone.

    ...leave remnants of your last three meals in your facial hair.
