I think that's been the gripe of many people's lives for almost 10 years now

My gripe of the day is...
Why do older folks always want to stay in the far left lane of traffic and drive slow.
Don't people know that slower traffic goes to the far right lane... In the USA anyway.


Ooops. I guess I'm talking about myself. But I drive fast inthe left lane.

My driving gripe is similar, but it's when old people driving slow in the middle lane when there's plenty of room in the left lane

My gripe.....which seems to happen about 3 times a week on my way home......

People that are TOO lazy to pull their car INTO their driveway, and walk to the mailbox. DON'T pull up to it, on the road, to get out your mail, holding up traffic (this usually happens on backroads btw, where it's not quite wide enough to do this crap). They pull up, try to get their mail out or the box by stretching over the passenger side of the car, and then once they finally have it, they pull into the driveway which is about 3 feet from the mailbox.

God, people are getting so lazy these days. Pull your car into your damn driveway and get out and walk 5 ft. to your mailbox.

My first gripe is lack of consistancy.
My second gripe is people who put the mailbox on the wrong side of the driveway, so you have to stretch across the passengers side.

My third gripe is people who put all the mailboxes for the shared driveway bunched together, and then the numbers fall off, and the postman can't make an educated guess based on the previous box number being 47, so sequentially the order of the bunched mailboxes would be 49,51,53,55 and decides to put 51's mail into 55's box!
Logic people! Logic!

my gripe is with the people who decided that having mailboxes outside was a good idea anyway.... why not just do like we do in the UK and have a letterbox in the front door? that would solve all your problems in one go

I also hate the way you can never find that option on your computer that you know you've seen but it's never where you think it is....
