Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

My driving school instructor, some hundred+ years ago, told me that the most important thing in driving is to remember that all other drivers are idiots, and that those idiots think the same about me.

And if you are not an idiot (generally speaking) you will understand the meaning of the above words

Good one Bill!

Obviously, there is no end to the number of possible annoyances. The trick is to deal with the emotion itself, because the causes of it are not going to vanish. It is no easy task, and no one is able do so 100% of the time, but with each small success, it gradually becomes easier.

Yeah SV and there is always some fool in between them that is doing something even worse lol!!
Not a problem - I'm ambidextrous and the one-fingered salute is universally recognised - whichever hand is used!

Reminds me of the time a male driver overtook another car and as he did so the female driver yelled "PIG!!"

As the one-fingered salute was snapped into action he looked up and ran into a monster of a pig staggering across the road.

Poetic justice - ain't it sweet.

When Xbox 360 freezes in the middle of the game and it makes me feel like it has corrupt everything in the hard drive and like it creates some kind of error dump somewhere which i'm never able to find out. Consoles are not meant to be freeze when using the scratchless discs... I hate this feeling and this problem which happens once in a while.

Very true

Although I like to mix it up with other universal gestures depending on the miscreants manoeuvre in question. It can often have more impact than a solitary digit extension. Eye contact is preferable:

►The Golf Clap

Useful for applauding 'jobs well done' ie nearly being wiped out.

►The Head Shake

Slow and exaggerated often accompanied by the clear mouthing of "****ing idiot". Useful for expressing disbelief whilst belittling another drivers existence.

► The Appendage Massage

There are two variants here: The standard simulated 'air massage' gesture or the more specific 'You have an appendage attached to your head' motion. The larger the transgression, the larger the gesture.

Bonus emphasis is awarded when you can combine all three gestures in succession.

Any or all of these gestures are usually responded to with the solitary digit response. An acceptable return is the 'yoo-hoo' cheeky wave with an adorned smug smile affixed.

I don't get too involved in the niceties of roadside etiquette, my wife manages to convey her displeasure without any help from me.

Sign language is the number three cause of traffic accidents.

Cell phone calls and texting are number one and two.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
