I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

While I'm on the theme and have nothing better to do, what about when someone else borrows your computer, resets the height of your chair, moves your icons around and changes your default settings without changing them back?

At the petrol station, people who stop at the rear pump when the front one is vacant, leaving you to sit angrily awaiting their return from the till, while the front pump remains unused and unreachable.

People who check multiple cards at an ATM, when there's a queue.

Hang them.

Hang them.

In the same vein, people who pay bills and stuff in the bank when you're twelfth in the queue and waiting to pay in a cheque that'll take ten seconds. This is the bloody Internet age, not to mention telephone banking.

People who say 'Robin Reliant'. Even Jeremy Clarkson has been guilty of this. If you don't know what's wrong about this, you're part of the problem, not the solution.

Can you tell the wife and kids have gone away for the weekend? I really should go to bed.

Can you elaborate what you mean by that exactly?

Do you mean people who stay on it while they are too slow?

No, I mean that the middle lane is an overtaking lane. If you're not overtaking, you should be in the inside lane... I feel an argument developing.

That's fair enough. When it's a fairly empty motorway, I might hang about on the middle lane but otherwise I'll be on the far right. But then will you tell me staying on the far right is wrong as that is also for overtaking?

Yes, the middle lane and outside lanes are both overtaking lanes. If you use either to cruise in, you're clogging up the motorway. At a pinch, at 3 in the morning with no traffic around, it's arguably safer to sit in the middle lane, as it gives you room for error if you drop off.
