People that don't take their wallet out UNTIL the cashier tells them what the total is!

People that STOP on a main road, to let someone out of a side street.

Bankers that collect vintage bicycles.

Drive thru's, they never get it right. People that expect a fully loaded reefer truck to be able to stop on a dime when they cut me off. And parents who let they're kids run the streets at all hours of the night and wonder why they get in trouble. :roll:

Those people who see you waiting for them to get in their car so you can get the only parking place left for miles. They purposely go into slow motion, especially if there are other cars behind you. Even better if they can back up traffic in the whole parking lot. They hate giving up that valuable parking space. Finally their car starts up! After another 2 minutes, backup lights! Then an agonizing 5 minutes to slowly creep backwards only to find they don't have enough room to pull straight out. So they move back in to try it again. The guy two cars behind you just did a burnout and left yelling. Finally the slow boat to China moves out, and the long procession of cars moves up a few spots as the next person waits for the next people to get in their car.

Everyone should ride bikes and avoid all that.

The strange phenomenon on the skinniest roads with no traffic for miles, two cars intersect at he exact moment you need to avoid a huge hole or broken shoulder on your bike, leaving you the choices to either stop completely or risk wiping out on the soft shoulder. I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me when riding. :x

Bike related? Weight-weenie carbon-fiber roadies turning their noses up at cruiser bikes.
we even get it at the trails, mtb'r to mtb'r
dudes on their $4k + Moots etc.
me on my actually really nice but 13 year old Kona and my buddy on his 92 Rockhopper.
we rode by some of them in the parking lot the other weekend and they scoffed at our bikes.
said something like, "well that's economical"
i had to bite my tongue.
i just have to keep thinking that we can run circles around those a holes on our cheap bikes.

also, fixie hipsters that scoff at any road bike thats not a "no brakes" fixie.

i also hate getting buzzed while on my bike (car getting way too close)
ESPECIALLY while i am riding in the bike lane!
i actually caught up to someone that did that to me the other day.
i wont type in what i said to him.

snoody LBS employees also tick me off.
the closest bike shop to me is FULL of them.
i go to one across town.

thank you for this thread.
felt good to vent.

When people tap bumpers on the Tollway in rush hour traffic and stay in the middle lane to swap insurance info instead of pulling off onto the shoulder. :x
