Well boys, you've got nothing to fear with a RBT/non RBT if you watch your drink, have you? It's when they pull you up to do a RBT & finish up doing a roadworthy that's a worry. I had a friend who had a car put off the road for a non functioning am/fm radio, but in the country areas I guess it's a way of communicating in emergencies

People that ride up escalators and get off at the top and just stand there.
People that walk through the gates into a supermarket and just stand there in the way of everyone else trying to get in.
People that try to board an elevator with out waiting for people on board to get off.

People at servos who know you're waiting to use their pump but spend about 10 mins or so doing their shopping before going thru the cash register & returning to move their car. Servos should have parking bays so people can fill up, then move their car to the bay then go in & pay.

Products that have badly written/interpreted instructions, or none whatsoever, when assembly is required.

Tourists who have an issue with driving above 60kph down the Great Ocean Road & through th Otways, refusing to pull over in the slow traffic lane. Well, maybe tourists altogether.

Cyclists that constantly say they don't get enough respect on the roads but then ride 2 or 3 abreast on thin (solid line) country roads and around blind corners where you have to slow right down for them or move into the oncoming lane blind, then wonder why we hate them!?!

- when you go to REPCO, SUPERCHEAP, ASHDOWNS, AUTOBARN or wherever else you might go, and the pimply faced prick of a school kid behind the counter thinks they know everthing there is to know about anything with a internal combustion engine in it.

- car mechanics that think they are gods gift to ring spanners.

- salesman that wouldn't know customer service if it walked up and punched them in the face. i mean ***** me if i'm here to spend my money, atleast give me a hand to spend it.

Motor cyclists who always wine about not being given the respect on the roads but ride 3" off your ass and then overtake on crests, bends and double lines all without indicating. :irked: :irked:

It really upsets me when I am waiting...with left indicator on , for car reversing out of a parallel parking,...& as soon as they do a rude person on opposite lane just turns in with no warning !,...I would never confront them as I don't encourage road rage...but I sure get upset....some people have no manners
Who's gonna introduce me to all those hidden, natural wonders ?..... 'my trusty 4WD'.

not sure why, but whenever im in the 80, people dont do that to me. i think the look on my face says that i wont think twice about winching their car out of the spot so i can park there
