People who can't merge properly, can't change lanes properly, can't negotiate roundabouts properly, can't indicate properly, people on the freeway who can't do the speed limit, and people who don't indicate when turning right at an intersection with no filter lane until they are in the middle of the intersection.

So yeah, most of Perth.

Actually, thats a load of rubbish..

i worked this out the other day, the yanks pay about 70-80 CPL AUS compared to us paying nearly double that..

we're on par with the price of fuel in the uk, but they pay more to avoid the cars on the road, but they also have a very well sorted public transport system, compared to our crap ones..

i think bitching about the fuel price is fair, i fail to under stand how it takes some 8 years to go from 50-60cpl, to about 80-90 cpl, then SUDDENLY, in a two years period, go from 89-90 cpl to nearly a buck 50.. its a load of shit, oil costs have gone up yes, but lets face it, they've stayed much the same, production costs are less due to better refinement techniques, yet fuel companys post monsterous proffits, as do the goverments..

its a load of crap, its nothing but proifteering on the side of the fuel companies, and the aus goverment, the goverment won't reduce tax either, because they'd suddenly loose the neat little cash cow they've built up over the past couple of yrs, fueling it with fear and speculation of war as a reason to up the prices further..

You hit the nail on the head there Denver. The facts are that as the barrel of oil cost has gone up the Oz govnt makes more and more. Rather than reduce the tax so that their take remains constant (or in line with other indicators such as inflation) they just keep taking.

About 60% of the price you pay at the pump is tax...you do the sums when petrol has gone from 70-80c at litre to over $1.20.

nothing to do with fuel prices, but those idiots that work at those juice bars, and how over happy they are, they have their little boom box with there bubblegum music playin, and there all so over the top happy, and when im having a bad day and i walk past them it makes me want to load the colt up... they are not groovy, they are not cool...

there is a fat asian girl who works at java juice in town up near 78's, if men could hit chicks she would be my number 3 on the list.. advice to her.. buy a pair of shoes the same color because diff color shoes isnt cool, and when you have them, go running, (you all know the one)

agreeing with nathan, but also must add, people who constantly stick on the right lane, believeing they are correct, when infact they are doing 10-20kms less than the speed limit, and also refuse to change lanes,

people who stick on the right lane, and block others off cause they doing the same speed as people next to them, and lastly...

WTF is up with mothers driving 4wd's to school? is our school carparks that bad that they need 4wd's jus to pick up their kids?

what grinds my gears: people who don't indicate, tailgate, people doing things when driving for example talking on their mobiles, 4wds I mean why does every mum have to have one some may say you can tell how yuppie an area is by counting the number of 4wd shopping trolley’s in the car park, I guess this can all be classified under bad drivers.

I also agree with shmiddy, very well said and straight to the point haha!

People who show up late to work EVERY morning then leave right on time every day.

And this cocky 'fanta pants' guy at my work who has a one of those gay arse goatee's without the moustache bit, so he looks like a stupid leprechaun. And when he walks his arms dont move - WTF? One time there was team dinner and when asked what he wanted to drink, he said he didnt drink wine, beer or any of the spirits the place had available. Instead he made his manager walk to the bottle shop and buy him a 4 pack of woodstock bourbons! Then when ordering something to eat he said to the waitress 'There is nothing that I like on here, can you make me a spaghetti cabonara - thanks' GRRRR. I have a theory that he got bashed at school alot for being a nerd, but thought that when he started work, if he acted like a cocky know-it-all, people would respect and like him. WRONG WRONG WRONG I also believe he may have mild tourettes - he does random things like opening the door to the test lab and yelling into the office area 'BURN'.

Everytime I hear him talk to someone like they are stupid or when he tries to be funny with the admin girls and doesnt pull it off.... I get the urge to pound his head in with the my sticky tape dispenser. Users don't thank you for making them look like idiots!

Van Drivers

ever noticed how all van drivers seem to believe they own the road and that there driving some kind of sports car that has the same handling and power of a top line sports car, they never seem to give a hoot about pulling out in front of others, have no respect or curtisy for other road users, it's an amazing transformation that occurs whenever anyone drives these totally unsafe, blind spot hunks of shit, and then you get the turbo diesel models and these f**kers have to try drag everyone of at the lights.

and i would have to add taxi drivers to that same rant

*all of the above

older perth drivers thinking they drive perfectly and blame the younger ones for driving badly. hey, its not like that ALL the time!

oh and also, major lane closures on the freeway leading to real slow traffic at times and places you wouldnt expect (south tce - just after canning hwy at 10pm on a tuesday night.)

- kinda reminds me of the "Things that you hate and annoys you" on teknoscape... :)

People that get next to me at the lights in the left hand lane after reading my number plate and see that the lane they are in has parked cars just over the intersection decide to try and pull out in front of me away from the lights.

People that get next to me at the lights in the right hand lane after reading my number plate and see that the lane I am in has parked cars just over the intersection decide to race me and try to stop me from pulling over in front of them. :P
