 Feeder lanes are there to be used

I have just been browsing the posts in the venting corner about what gets other kidspotters annoyed. Well my current favourite is people's inabiltiy to use a feeder lane when turning right in to a busy road. There are 2 instances of a feeder lane (where you can pull out across the road and sit in the feeder lane until its clear to go) on my way to school each day. And each day i get at least one driver who sits and waits and waits and waits until both lanes are clear until they pull out to turn right - instead of making sure its clear to the right, and that no one is waiting to turn in front of them from their left and then pulling out in to the lane.

It drives me crazy!

What annoys you the most??

Queue jumpers make me mad!!  You're waiting in line for your turn somewhere like the supermarket and the people that just push in ahead of you.  Sometimes I say something but mostly I avoid the confrontation! and end up muttering under my breath.  And it seems to be people of any age.  I accidently went ahead of someone once and I apologised when I was confronted!  But that person didn't take it very well!

Both of you have raised issues which annoy me!!! Also people who don't control their dogs!!!! What is up with thinking that just because it is a pure bred whatever with a name longer than most peoples' names that it should be allowed to roam the streets and poop in the yards of non dog owners like myself!!! ANNOYING!!!

what gets on my wick is when you use the feeder lanes, and someone has a panic attack and thinks your gona pull in front of them. um hey thats what they are for. They are especially helpful at peak hour.

What annoys me (and this happened again only last week) is when you are waiting with blinker on to turn into a carpark on the opposite side of the road and someone shoots in infront of you... Argghhh!!!
Also waiting in a store to be served (and sometimes for ages) and then the sales person serves someone who has come in after you!!!

I get really frustrated by companies that put their flyers/advertising material into my mailbox even though it clearly says No Circulars! Oh, and people that talk or text through movies at the cinemas - if you don't want to pay attention why on earth did you pay so much money to get in?!

Oooo yes the feeder lane thing is very annoying but I think what is worse is when someone is about to turn left onto another street and they don't use the median and turn from the middle of the road REEEEEAAAAAALLY SLOOOOWLLY holding up traffic! I say jump into the median as soon as u reach it!
