Someone pulls the trigger, and you go stupid.
You know, those seemingly inconsequential things that make you absolutely lose your mind. You know you should not think/feel/act this way, but bloody hell, you can't help it.

Me? Aggressive driving truckers. Great big tractor-trailers who drive as if everyone else on the public highways and byways are road blocks to be ran over. Makes me ab-so-freakin-lootly lose my damn mind. If there is no one else in the car to witness it, I completely flip out. Screaming, yelling, banging my fist on the dashboard, you name it. The closest I have come to a fist fight in my adult life has been with a trucker. Makes me want to turn green and split my shorts.

Ya'll?

That stupid person that pulls out of a driveway into your lane when the other one was perfectly clear, you almost rear end them, and look behind you just to see that there is not another soul on the road for as far as the eye can see! Why did the pull out in front of you to go 20 miles an hour? Just to piss you off, that's why!
I have SO many...where to begin?

People who get in political discussions, and are morons. Got into a "discussion" with a guy on FB the other day who called Obama a professional terrorist. I tell him that if he's going to make statements like that, he needs to back them up, and he blows up, telling me he doesn't like talking to me because I always make him talk about the meaning of words, etc...

As the discussion progressed, he threatened to whip my ass. I told him to bring it.
FB?
Could be wrong, but I'm guessing FaceBook?
I'm betting on Joseph. I know you could take me, no problem. Maybe you'd beat me with a rake in Farmville, just for good measure.
Facebook. And no...wouldn't bother with a rake. Not particularly effective for the purpose.
Middle men and account executives who promise things to clients, without checking with the people who have to fulfill those promises about what is possible either timeframe wise, or within the client's budget.

Nothing gets me angry more quickly than a green AE yelling at me about a brand new ad she promised the client would be done that same afternoon (especially if they don't even have the specs, assets, or copy).

The rules are simple. Check first. Don't make wild promises that other people have to make good on. And don't throw me under the bus just to look good. Thanks.
I get you on the road rage thing. I predict I'll lose my life in a car accident, but it might actually be road rage. The last time I really lost my mind was a road rage incident. I got out of my car and went back to talk to the guy, as soon as he cussed at me I hit him in his face and told him to mind his manners he was completely freaked out like he was in a trance and drove off looking dumbfounded. That in turn freaked me out, and I felt bad that he didn't retaliate. I drove off thinking that I needed to get a handle on it because he could have had a weapon or put me in jail. I know one of my friends has PTSD and drives with a pistol in his car so I should know better.

When someone asks me my birthday, zipcode, or phone number just out of the blue. Especially at a service counter. Sometimes I draw a blank because my brain just isn't in that place, and my reply is "Uh?" or "Just make something up".
Yeah, you have to be careful these days with people, James - never know who's packing. However, I think it's awesome that you popped the guy in the face!
Well, I learned one thing, or maybe relearned something from it, that is...I don't really like hitting people.
I'm a librarian, so I get to deal with the public at large. One of the many things that irk me is when people think they can do what ever they want in here because we're a public library. Many of them think they're home - talking on their cell phones - talking too loud - music too loud. It's called common courtesy! However, many of them are too self-absorbed to think about other people. Drives me insane!
I was in the library reading this last Friday after work and this woman got on her phone, three people jumped on her about and she still continued on her way out narrating that a bunch of people were bothering her so she was leaving.
