#280: Bouncing Fans

I think basketball is already an inferior sport to watch (so much time watching boring free throws) but when I stumble upon a game that is running over into my hockey game (another annoyance) I can't stand the dumb college kids that bounce up and down while they stand up cheering for their team. I can't explain why, but I just find it extremely lame to the point of annoyance. Severity: 2

#279: Everyday Voicemail Outgoing Message Updaters

I don't like people that update their voicemail outgoing message everyday. I can understand doing it when you are out of the office on occasion, but it's when people have one that says "Today is Friday January 26 and I'll be in the office all day today" it's like they are saying that they are such jetsetters and important people that they have to give a daily report of their whereabouts to all the people desperate to talk to them.

#278: People wearing sweatsuits in fitness clubs

You are indoors and sweating and obviously it's not cold. So why do people where sweat suits on the treadmill? As I'm sweating like a pig in my shorts and short sleeve shirt, I see these people dressed for the cold outdoors and can't understand their thinking. Of course, it must be for fashion, but that also is annoying to me. Severity: 1

#277: Low Threshold for 1/2 mast flags

Everywhere, I see flags at 1/2 mast. Is it for Ford still? Or some other unimportant thing? Whatever the case, I feel I'm fairly well-informed as to world events and I know of nothing that makes me a sad enough American to need to see flags at 1/2 mast and therefore I gather that it's some lame reason. They need to reserve this tradition for when something really bad happens. Otherwise, the gesture is cheapened. Severity: 2

#276: Songs from movies not on soundtrack

When a song is a major part of a movie, yet is not in the soundtrack, for some licensing dispute usually. It's very disappointing to me. Best example would be Vanity 6's Nasty Girl from Beverly Hills Cop which was almost was played in it's entirety during the strip club scene in the film, yet is missing from the soundtrack.

#275: Car Peekers

When traffic is slow on the highway, I don't like when people pull off onto the shoulder a little bit to try to get a look to see what's causing the backup. Not sure why this annoys me, but I think it's something to do with people not being able to deal with a little slowdown in a calm manner. Severity: 1

#274: Car Flags

You don't see too many these days, but I just saw today a person with one of those US flags attached to the roof of their car on the highway. The flag increases drag, reduces gas mileage, and hence forces the person to buy more gas to support regimes that are against the American Way. I don't see how this is supporting the country, as the person obviously feels they are doing by being patriotic with the car flag. Severity: 1
