    You can ask buckhuntr about my driving. He'll never get in my car again.

    The drag racing type! LOL They think they can drive great but only in a straight line. As soon as they enter a turn they hit the brakes. I have road raced, raced on dirt tracks & done a little off roading. If you know your limits & push those limits to learn you can handle any vehicle on about any terrain.

    Dumb question time ....If your vehicle is in cruise control and has the automatic "slow down so you don't run into the vehicle ahead of you" thing, when it automatically slows you down, do your brake lights come on?"

    My guess is "No." It's more like lifting your foot off the gas.

    It depends on how the programming in the brake control module is set up. Our Volvos with Bendix adaptive cruise are set up for the brake lights to come on when the adaptive cruise slows the vehicle.

    Alright I got one

    Those hippy soap YouTube commercials where they ask random people in the middle of a city what the soap smells like. Inevitably the person will say "oooo it smells like a forest" all I can think is clearly they've never been in a forest ever...

    Very true. They have even reduced themselves to showing visibly stained underpants in some commercials.

    I haven’t seen that yet. I’m tired of them wiggling their rear ends while singing “My hiney’s clean”.

    Another pet peeve. When the bagger puts my gallon of milk into a plastic bag. :confused:

    When the bagger puts, the frozen broccoli on top of the hot chicken tenders from the deli counter. The challenged nephew, with the MacJob knows better.

    I haven’t seen that yet but I know it exists. I used to buy goat milk direct from the farmer and the milk was in a ziplock bag.

    I’ve never seen a bagger that stupid.

    People who don't cut zip ties flush.

    No, I didn't attempt to baptize a cat, I worked on a truck with a harness installed by Satan.

    Of course, once attempting to reach into a "cluster" of a wiring harness where the zip ties all have a sharp edge protruding, once sure feels like there's been an attempt to baptize a cat. BTDT, once or twice. One of the more frustrating, confounding things.

    Or, like prepping a parking lot on a pre-owned facility, so it can open for business. Cutting off the old signage posts where the old ones aren't wanted ... but only snipping them off about 3/4" off the pavement, leaving an ugly, tetanus-inducing, sharp nub sticking up right in places people will surely trip over. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    While working on my own stuff, I hit the cut end with a bic quick to melt the sharp edges.

    My flush cutters don't leave sharp edges.
