Driving behind someone going waaay to slow......and then they tap on their breaks to slow down even more!
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

People who don't switch nusach at "l'cha ezbach zevach toda."  Don't ask, just a thing.
If you don't care why would you comment?

people who call all types of chicken breast "shnitzel" even when it isn't breaded

people who argue with you by saying "well, that's your opinion". Gee wiz! who's opinion did you think i was giving you!

people who don't pull out into the intersection by a turning lane by a light (very common in Colorado)

and the list goes on...
                             and on...
                                   and on....

i'm not sure if you are joking or not, but i believe it is technically illegal everywhere, but simply not upheld anywhere (with the exception of the intersections that warn that blocking the box will result in a ticket)

My driving instructor told me that in NY it's legal (I think even said that the law is that the first driver has to go into the intersection).

When passing cars honk at you when you're stopped at a stop sign . . . just in case.

When people use the phrase "be that as it may."
Have you ever heard anyone use those words in any way that added meaning?

A lot of frummy people use the term "b'chol oifen" in a similar way. They start trailing off and realize they have no point, so they just look down and mumble, "b'chol oifen..." as if that makes it okay that they started rambling without knowing what they were going to say.

I realized that the equivalent of "b'chol oifen" for particularly corny gentiles is "anyhoo" but at least that's somewhat whimsical.
