"We Are Getting Aggravated..."

Ever get that feeling that you are surrounded by idiots? It's the little things that annoy me the most. People who stand in the street to wait for a jeep instead of the curb. People who don't read instructions and then ask you a question that was quite plainly explained in said document. People who jump to the front of a group of people standing front to back, and then look at you like you're crazy when you tell them there's a line. People who see you hold your hand out for your change, then proceed to place the money directly beneath it on the counter.
I've gotten to the point when I will gladly pay money to avoid additional stressors. Going to the more expensive cinemas for the first show to avoid the bastards that feel the need to recite 50 years of of Iron Man continuity to their friend during the climax. Taking cabs instead of FX's to avoid ass-hats who insist on gossiping loudly on cellphones inside enclosed spaces. Choosing to eat inside Brother's Burger instead of McDonald's to avoid the crowds.
There should be a rule book somewhere that would be included in the core curriculum of every pre-school, and then it's tenets should be hammered into kid's skulls down through the years. They would call this class "How Not to be a Douche Bag When You Grow up"
The world would be a better place.
