I was seconds away from lunging at someone across the counter at work the other day because she wouldn't stop being an idiot about how we have to mark the bar codes on the books since they're non-returnable. "THAT'S MY BOOK, YOU CAN'T DO THAT" "You haven't even paid for it yet, it isn't yours. I'm marking it now so if you don't want it BEFORE you pay for it, you don't have to buy it." Etc. I rarely ever get so riled up, but I suppose the looming thought of losing my job, coupled with lines an hour long, coupled with a stupid **** of a 'customer' just hit me in the weak spot. If anyone's wondering... yes, she DID walk out with the book. My co-worker told her to gtfo before it got too heated and then he gave me a hug.
Then again, I think the general public in... er... general, makes me angry. Too many idiots out there, it makes an otherwise wonderful job utterly horrendous.
I also second the vast majority of the things already said. Lousy driving and judging based on hobbies are definitely at the top of the list.
@Visadin - I feel for you, really. There are things that really can get me to go from extremely happy to overly pissed in seconds - usually things dealing with sound. I can't listen to commercials, and I haven't heard the radio or watched television in years mostly due to the fact that if something bugs me, it gets on my nerves extremely quickly. It can provoke the absolute worst reactions from me, and it makes me feel absolutely terrible, especially when that makes me go off at someone I care a lot about. *hugs* It'll be okay... just keep working at it.
