LOL that squirrel video is hilarious! Seen that a long time ago. I usually just grab my .22 and take makes short work of those little buggers.

What grinds my gears? Well they'll grind if I and try and shift my truck without using the clutch.

Seriously though, when someone is in front of you doing 45mph in a 55mph zone and then the speed limit changes to 30mph and they continue doing 45.

Standard bolts on newer vehicles, this drives me absolutely nuts for some reason.

A GM vehicle (newer) that uses something other than sizes 8, 10, 13, and 15.

Yes I hate that too. Or when doing brakes, the pin bolts are 14 and the brackets are 13. Actually on a Cadillac, think it'* a CTS, one bracket bolt is 18 and the other is 15, like WHY?!

That'* odd.

On every Honda that has came in the pin bolts are always 14 and the brackets are always 19. You could bet money on it.

Just don't ask them to carbarate a car. They'll screw that one up.

Just thought of another one! Tangled cords, this drives me absolutely up the wall. Especially when I grab the Tech2 at work and it'* nothing but a birds nest. It takes 2 seconds to untangle it and I'm the only one that will take that 2 seconds out of my life to do so.
