Ha, even before seeing your post, I was headed to this thread to differentiate between the above drunks who ruin bootlegs — angry drunks, usually — and the drunks who make bootlegs awesome.  The people on stage, like those in the crowd, can fall into either of those two categories.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I'm not angry - I just sing along (loudly & off key).  I also tend to flail should the spirit strike so beware yr recording equipment. ;D

Stickers on fruit.  Especially when they're not on the fruit anymore and someone has stuck them somewhere else that's visible to me.  Creeps me right the CINECAST! out.

Stickers on most things, actually.

When people leave sticky tape and/or permanent marker crap on the lightboxes.


It's pretty obvious that I just don't like sticky stuff, really.

Cars which don't indicate that they're about to turn into the road you wish to cross. I had to do a bit of a Ratzo Rizzo when this happened the other day.

Cars that turn right out of the center or left lane and/or cars that turn left out of the center or right lane.

I don't know how much of a problem it is in other areas, but it is particularly bad here in North Texas.

I have often thought about becoming a restaurateur just so I could have Children and No Children sections like there are Smoking and No Smoking sections. I do not mind families dining at family restaurants, but there needs to be a place of sanctuary for the rest of us.

I couldn't agree more. I'm a waitress at a family restaurant, and I just got home from a 5 hour shift of screaming, running children. I wouldn't even mind so much if the parents would just acknowledge my hard work with a decent tip. Their kids leave a huge mess on the table and I get to clean up after them for $1.85.

That was much more rant-y than I expected.

My advice: go to better restaurants.
