IRregardless. It's a flippin' double negative jackasses.

Regardless is the word you're looking for.

Similarly, "I could care less". Ok, so you dou care and it is possible for you to care less than you do right now. I bet you meant "I couldn't care less", which would imply that you care so little that it is not possible for you to care any less.

It doesn't bothere so much when your every day Joe says these things, but I hear people who get paid to talk, or teach, saying these things. I figure they should know better.

Another one is folks who can't seem to get their belt above their boxers.

1)Shopping carts all over a store parking lot. Walk ten extra feet and use the cart corral!
2) Working customer service. People who can't get off the cell phone long enough to conduct their business with me.
3) Smokers who think the world is their ashtray.

Drives me crazy when people use the word "enthused", its a past tense verb. One cannot "be" enthused, one can only enthuse a point.

EX: That steak was delicious, Johnny enthused.

I know it's weird, put its a pet peeve

Tailgaters! The closer they drive, the slower I drive!

Just yesterday morning, I had some numbnuts in a little rice burner half way up my tailpipe. I live in Amish country and I could tell by the horse and buggy tracks and piles of fresh horse manure that local bible study was just up the road. I tried to drive thru as much horse $h!t as poss. to try to fling some on that little rice turds windshield!!

I have worked retail for the last 8 years. I have owned several small businesses and have worked in the manufacturing industry for over 8 years. I also am 20 yrs retired Army
Nothing will open your eyes to how humanity has degraded like working retail. This does not apply to all, but that are quite a few people think that some how they feel they are special and need to be assisted accordingly. They steal all the time from the retail stores in the name of customer service because they feel slighted in some trivial way and now they need compensation for all they have gone though. Customers are routinely rude to workers because they assume your stupid as you would obviously have a better job than this if you were smart enough.

Military people the get indignant when they can not stack a military 10% on top of existing promos because of store policy. They some how translate this into not respecting the men and women in uniform and the scarf ice all soldiers have made. I volunteered for service in 1971. No one drafted me, I knew what I was getting into and expected to get nothing in return. Certainly if I am offered a discount I take it. I do not nor have I ever felt like I was owed special treatment because of past or current Military status. Those that do need to grow up you embarrass me. Just treat me as you want to be treated and I will be your best friend and help you all I can. I have to tell you though insulting me, being rude to me does not and will not get you better service.
