    So I've been driving this old, beat up, junky pickup truck for years and years without incident and I finally break down and buy a new car. Before I can get 6,000 miles on the new car I get rear ended and have to deal with insurance adjusters and body shop estimates and a laundry list of headaches to get my car fixed.

    Insurance companies really grind my gears!!!

    Just so I'm not the only grumpy old curmudgeon complaining about stuff, I decided to start this thread. What really grinds your gears?

    I'll tell you what grinds my gears...

    This Lindsey Lohan... eh? Lindsey Lohan, with all those little outfits, jumpin' around there on stage, hallf-naked, with your little outfits... you know You're up there jumpin' around, and I'm just sitting here with my beer. So... you know, what am I supposed to do? What do you want? You know, are we gonna go out? Is that what you're trying to... why... why you're leaping around there, throwing those things all up in my face? Huh? What do you want, Lindsey? TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT! Well I'll tell you what you want, you want NOTHING! YOU WANT NOTHING! Allright, because we all know that no woman anywhere wants to have sex with anyone, and to titillate us with any thoughts otherwise is just bogus...

    Oh man I hear you on the insurance thing. I had a wreck maybe 10 years ago that I was screwed on. Don't want to get into that story....because I gots a new one! Yay!

    A cop of all people pulled out in front of me Monday. Both vehicles are totaled, and it's hard for me to walk. My left foot is jacked up, hopefully just a sprain? My right knee is hurting too. It's a weird feeling.

    The problem is this is my second ER visit in 2 years that has not gone very well imo. The 1st one could have made me lose an eye according to an eye specialist who fixed me up after the Er got a hold of me.

    This time they took x-rays, then the doc came back and said the x-rays are negative and just walked away. So I'm thinking is that all? Here's some ibuprofen and some hydros, and no advice or explanations? It doesn't feel like I'm getting any better, so I guess I'll have to go somewhere else to get this looked at.

    I guess I could sum it all up in one sentence. Driving sucks, we need teleportation devices, not the ones with flies in them like in that freaky movie "The Fly", and to hell with auto insurance and docs that ain't worth a **** but still make millions. A bit of a run on there.

    People who you work with will talk to you one they like they want to be your best buddy.

    So the next time you bump into them you act all friendly & then they blank you.

    So next time you see them you don't give them the time of day. Low & behold they act like their your best buddy again.

    I've come across maybe a dozen of these types of people in my like. Borderline sociopaths,relationships are like a game to them. Now when I find one I make it clear I don't play that game.

    You know what really grinds my gears? People in the nineteenth century. Why don't they get with the freaking program? It's called an automobile folks, it's much faster than a horse.

    Bad journalism (yes I know that's pretty much a tautology these days)
