Is this a pet peeve of anyone else?

I hate it when their are two doors, and someone uses the wrong door. Like they are walking in and they use the left door, so when I'm walking out and using the right door which would be their left I have to wait for their dumbasses to come through!! It's like someone driving on the left side or something! Makes no sense!! Does this bother anyone else???

Well this was another lady and I was walking in and was already through the door and then she came through, it was a small entry way and she gave the loud breath, rolled her eyes, and then said EXCUSE ME because she had to go back in, even though there was a second door to exit

When they say that just say: "That's OK your fart didn't smell that bad" in a loud voice.

Haha, I almost took my boss out about five minutes ago when I was going into the bathroom and he was coming out. I really threw that door open too. I could see him jump back as I threw it open Good times.

That is the worst. Your lips tighten up and you can barely suck food through a straw.

Yeah, I scared the shit out of some old lady who was coming out and I opened the door just as she went to pull it open, she almost fell backwards and then almost shit her pants.

Then Yesterday two co-workers were standing in front of the bathroom door talking so everyone had to say "excuse me" to get them to move. Then I come out and there still standing right in front of the door, so once again I had to say excuse me to get them to move again.....You would think they would know not to stand right in front of the bathroom door

Now that pisses me off. I hate it when people are so oblivious they aren't aware they are in the way.

Yeah it was kinda funny, because 2 girls were talking shit about them doing that ALL the time after we had finally gotten in the bathroom.

Yes, and how about people who walk really slowly down a narrow pathway, blocking the whole thing while talking to each other, and when you try to get through they look at you like you inconvenienced them. Or my personal favorite, when you are walking towards two people in a pathway like that and you have to go INBETWEEN them because they won't move out of the way enough for you to walk past

I hate that sh*t too! Or the asshats that stand side by side on an escaltor. Ever hear of "Stand right Walk left??" Morons.

Those must be the same people that sit in the left lane doing 5 under the speedlimit keeping pace with the car to their right.

Well, being 5'11" and 200lbs with a shaved head, most people get outta my way when I'm walking past them, but if they're being asshats about it, I'll make sure to slow down, brush past them (touching them on the back of the arm if possible which NO ONE likes) and say in a low, deep voice "scuse me" and they jump. You don't have to be big and ugly like me to pull this off, just GET IN THEIR SPACE as if you were a foreigner with no sense of 'personal space' and simply smile and say excuse me and they'll most likely move out of your way.

One other thing annoys me is the right/left/right dance that people do when passing in tight confines. I try to look and angle my body to the right so they go left, but of course, morons are morons and they'll simply get in your way, in that case its time to play human bowling ball and just 'Urlacher-them' flat on their ass. (if you're a petite lady, may I suggest tackling them at their kneecaps, just as effective!)
