The older I get, the better I get at being a curmudgeon. I suppose this is part of that “wisdom” that accrues to us with age.
Things that set me off:
- Overuse of “like” in conversation, especially among younger people.
- The lazy, derivative, and boring use of “prairie style” architecture in modern buildings, especially noticeable in the Midwest, from banks to gas stations to shopping centers.
- Anyone who routinely wears flip flops, t-shirt, and shorts outside during winter weather.
- Those who refuse to apologize for anything.
- Drivers who think vehicle turn signals and hazard lights are purely for decoration, not for actual use.
- Drivers on roads with two or more lanes who park themselves comfortably in the leftmost lane while driving slower than everyone else.
- Anyone who whistles a lot.
- Overpowering use of perfume or cologne.
