Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Remember the client who carefully checked and double checked things last week?

He just found another 200 pages of "oops" documents. <Banging Head>

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

This isn't really a gear-grinder, but it is a slight annoyance of mine.

People who misuse the phrase "begs the question." Listen, and right now I'm looking at you, Rich Tandler, "begs the question" does not mean "raises the question" or "asks the question." It simply refers to a circular argument. See better definition here. (And no, I did not create that website. )

What grinds my gears? The sensitive ass people that unfriend you on facebook because you question the validity of a moronic post they make, which ends up being completely false. So many morons, so little time. Good riddance.

Ughhhhh. For the last 2 days when I pull up ESPN.com, around 50% of the time a naked Prince Fielder is just staring at me. That is just foul

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

chico - just dont make eye contact and try to look down a lot.

i want to get out ahead of the curve of hate on this one - those crab car decals colored-in as the maryland flag. seemingly overnight they are everywhere. i saw one on a delaware license plate car yesterday. dela - freakin - ware.

i blame under armor for making the maryland flag now a trendy color scheme.

you wanna show some true maryland pride on your car - slap on an Os bird, the natty boh guy and a wtmd decal and be done with it.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

People that are in a big rush to pass you on the highway, only to then move over in front of you and then proceed to slow down causing you to have to pass them, then a mile down the road here comes guess who passing you again. Rinse and repeat.

The lack of cruise control use is disappointing.

classic distracted driver by a hand held device.

by slowing down to 40 in a 65 mph zone, they dramatically reduce the dangers of driving and texting.

giant - i dont travel that 29 mile stretch of 95 often but that is they worst, slowest highway construction i have ever seen. started in 2012, they are saying it will be completed by end of 2014.

Nothing has been slower then the work on 95 around White Marsh, MD. Shit has been going on since like 2007/08.

I have to drive a 10 mile stretch of 95 from Woodbridge to Alexandria every day and I've noticed something new they've done every day. Maybe people are just impatient, but I'd rather take the necessary time to have the work done right. I don't think it's going to improve traffic that much but maybe some of the more wealthier people won't mind paying to use the toll road, which would definitely help my commute.

I know it well , I was baby sitting my grandson on Quantico a couple of weeks last year .My question is why is the work not done at night like in Maryland on the beltway ...8pm -4am

I can tell you - with SmootSmack level of reliability - that they are still fighting legal battles on right-of-way issues associated with the project.

The work is massively complex in terms of the structures being constructed (high speed ramps and bridges subject to extremely high levels of stress from use and the elements), safety concerns during construction (trust me, it is unnerving to be standing near the constant traffic flow - think of changing a tire next on the interstate, every day, all day, for a year), and traffic engineering being done (compare it to trying to reroute two major rivers without ever stopping the flow of water).

On top of all that, given the fluidity of the traffic patterns, the level of complexity added by the nature of the location (i.e. - a confluence of major highways), redesign for unexpected issues is a constant problem even with all the expertise going into the original design.

If we didn't care (1) about seizing folks property without paying them a fair price; (2) if the bridges collapsed in 20 years; (3) if a few dozen workers being killed while it was being built; or (4) if we just completely shut down I-95/695 and Rte. 43 while the work was being done, the job could be done in about three months.

You know ... like they do in Russia.
