Re: What do you hate most?

Quickly off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

1) People who walk their dogs and do not pick up the poop.
2) People who think their time is more valuable than others (i.e. people who cut to the front of the queue, both drivers and pedestrians).
3) People with dogs that bark all night.
4) Irrational people, especially irrational people who vote or are in politics.
5) People who think the world owes them a living.
6) People who are uneducated by choice (there are a lot of these).
7) People who are cruel to animals and the weak, including a) people who abuse their wives b) people who abuse children and c) people who take advantage of the elderly.
8) pseudo- intellectuals.
9) People who litter.
10) Scientologist (see irrational).

I realize I do not like a large group of people.

Re: What do you hate most?

Under lawyers there could have been a footnote for judges. Some are saints working way beyond 40 hours and committing their intellectual capacity and soul to resolving the disputes that arise for good reasons and lame. They help us maintain civility. Then, there are those who seize the opportunity to fuel ego and feather a cushy nest at the expense of our tax dollars. I have encountered some who are close to civil saints and others who are egomaniacal, arbitrary bastards (or bitches). The latter bastards and bitches are parasites who suck off your hard earned tax bucks to accumulate cushy retirements after their reign. It is the closest thing to royalty. Even on the municipal level they enjoy civic invitations, cart blanche admission to important local functions and as much ass kissing as a body could endure without terminal chafing.

It's gotta be Politicians. Hands down!

As far as all of the others, for the most part you can choose to deal with them or not.

But, the politicians? You're stuck with whoever the "idiot public" votes for.
