Automotive pet peeves..

What are your pet peeves then it comes to driving, or general car/automotive discussion.

Few of mine:

General
- Non-car people not understanding why someone would modify a car.
- parts guys when your trying to get a part for a car with an engine swap. I had this problem lots with my 3L swapped Cougar.
- People that are stuck in one brand/type of car.. There is a ton of cool/well done cars/trucks of all makes and models.

On the road
-slow in the fast lane
-2 cars traveling the same speed blocking traffic
-people that don't signal
-"nice drivers" who try to wave people though even though they have the right of way but lack the confidence to take it thus creating a bottle neck an slow down all traffic.

Modifying
-people that modify instead of fixing their car ie. bodykit on a car with a miss matched truck lid.
-unprinted/still in primer body kits.
-cut springs


Name yours!

Pet peeve? People with no respect for your car lol.

-Dont get mud/snow/whatever off their shoes when they get in
-Throw their trash to the back seat
-use my car as storage for their shit after I gave them a ride
-scratch/break something and say "dude its just a scratch"

Also:

-trying to tell me I shouldn't modify my car because I will hurt it or cause it to be dangerous. Like wtf?!
-people who bought an evo or similar, kept it stock, and think they automatically are the fastest person around.
-people who install a body kit or intake only and think they have a race car and/or are pro tuners
-people who bought a car, read the brochure, know nothing about cars at all, and use only horsepower as a comparison of who's car is better, regardless of anything. And think they are the coolest shit to walk the earth because of it.
-ricers

The list goes on

Yeah,

Or when you intentionally park in the middle of no where and some POS always parks right beside you..

Also when your approaching a red light on a two lane road. Your lane is clear and the other lane has a couple cars lined up. Then one of those cars decideds to jump in front of you to take advantage of the open lane then as the light turns green they go the same speed as everyone else.

People who think their vehicles are hot shit. Or the best.

People who speed up to prevent you from merging over in front of them.

Idiots who put HID bulbs in their halogen based headlight and fogs.

Hot girls that drive their boyfriends around.

Oh forgot the big one. In a patrol car, everyone around you decides to do 5 under the limit and block you in. Get the hell out of my way, I have shit to do.

Lmao I knew you would say this one!

To add to that, people that don't have their headlights aligned and when you flash them you get flashed back.

The one time you go through a drive through and they hand you your coffee/drink and it dripping from them spilling. Like seriously, wipe it off I'm in my car.
