Public Behavior - What Are Your Peeves?

Mine: Among many other peeves, I find it really annoying to go out to eat and be be seated in proximity to somebody who either doesn't know or doesn't care about their *volume*. At dinner last night, I was seated near a woman whose voice and laugh made my head tremble - so obviously loud and intrusive on other diners, she obviously didn't care to tone herself down; that, and the fact her multitude of shopping bags were spilling into the walkway, I wanted to *accidentally* knock over my glass and watch it land on her Prada tote. People should stay in their own space, and that includes keeping their voices to * just across the table * volume.

Yes, I was not a happy camper yesterday, LOL!

    Ubers and Lyfts parking in lanes marked "Bus Only." Not just dropping off someone and peeling off, literally waiting for their pax for more than 5 minutes! The buses can't pull next to the stop, and it adds many hours of commute time a year for thousands of commuters!

    People who rush through doors, when others are trying to exit.

    Slow walkers in the grocery aisle, and of course they do this in the center of the aisle.

    Waiting in a long line where everyone is a few feet behind the other, except that one person who leaves a 5 foot gap. I don’t know why that bothers me so much.

    People who shout on the phone, full volume, on the train.

    Unruly children in high end restaurants. (The load obnoxious talker described by OP would have bugged me too).

    Bikes on the sidewalks instead of in the adjacent bike lanes (and cyclists who don't think traffic signals apply to them).

    Phone conversations at haute voix!

    Middle aged men who park in the space marked "reserved for pregnant women" and literally trot off to the store.

    People who start looking at their phones and texting on the jetway when deboarding a plane. They walk slower and more obliviously than everyone else and block the flow. I almost crashed right into a woman in front of me when her rolling bag a she almost stopped getting off a plane last night. She could have waited the 30 seconds to get off the jetway and pull aside.
