If I happen to say something that offends you - grow up and get over it.

If you think it makes you guys look silly it's because you are.

You do not have the first ****ing clue about "us guys", so I will just laugh at you again.

When driving -

1. Driving too slow
2. Driving too fast
3. Driving exactly the speed limit
4. Attempting to merge into freeway traffic
5. Attempting to exit the freeway
6. Attempting to change lanes (especially to let someone trying to merge in)
7. Failing to change lanes when someone wants to get out of a parking lot
8. Driving in the center lane
9. Driving in the left lane without ever passing anyone
10. Driving in the right lane without ever exiting
11. Picking your nose and flicking it out the window
12. Slowing down to look for an address
13. Allowing someone to pull out of a parking lot while you're at a red light
14. Blocking someone from being able to pull out of a parking lot while you're at a red light.

Please note that if you don't see your pet peeve on this list that's because it's a MACROaggression instead of a microaggression.

You're a guy?

After 6 years of carefully constructed gender neutrality, you finally come out in a thread about microagressions?

Okay, NOW I understand why that waitress got mad when I screamed "nice tits" at her from across that Steakhouse. It was a microaggression.
