Have you ever been in a line where you are stuck behind the most annoying people in the world and you feel like death is the only way out? Or not to be mean be completly surrounded by a tourist group from another country and they are speaking another language. Tell me soe of your stories.
In the Bull line at SFGAm I've been stuck close to people who smoke while in line...they're the most annoying hands-down in my book. But that's been covered so many times I'll leave it at that.
I also don't like people talking so loud on a cell phone I feel like I'm in on the conversation. There's nothing wrong with using a cell phone (except maybe the person needs to get a life), but I don't like being distracted by it. And people who see a need to swear and curse a lot and talk others down and stuff suck to be around too.
I cannot stand when people will start making out in line for a coaster! I was at SFA about a week ago, and THREE seperate times, I was stuck behind people who were smooching non stop. It's especially annoying when you are at a park with your mom or dad because it's always sorta awkward.
------------- "Enjoy your ride on ROAR and thank you for riding out loud"
Right on! How could I leave that out of my list? Unfortunately there seems to be a lot of folks like that, or I always get stuck by the few that go to parks. It's downright disgusting if you ask me. Speaking of people who need to get a life...

These Jr. High Wrestlers behind me in line for AC..They kept talking about how good they were and how they win all their matches...then a kid from there school screamed "Your the only ones in your weight class!" It was funny, sure shut them up!
Well, they may not always be annoying, but just general people. But I am not a people hater, it is just only when they say things about roller coasters. How they complain, and complain, or when they act lik they know everything about coasters. But smoking, tops my list. Do you know that besides lung cancer, smoking closes off your arteries and speeds up your heart beat? I wish parks could do a little more to stop smokers in line, it is just rude.
I also cant stand when people start to talk about coasters and think they know everything about them. But i guess i just think that way because i know probably more than them on the subject so they sound like a complete idiot. But to them it probably does sound like they know everything. And yeah i would say that smoking would top my list. And sometimes when you meet someone that wont shutup, and they talk to you about something you dont care about THE WHOLE TIME!
I hate people in a general sort of way. It seems you only have to leave the house to have someone irritate you. If it isn't an idiot in the drive-through who gets your order wrong it's some moron in an SUV on a cell phone who doesn't respect your "personal space."
Oddly enough, while two years of commuting into a major metropolitan area has made me irritated by such people, the people at most amusement parks are generally OK. They're there to have fun and take it easy. All the more reason why people need to ride more!

My goodness, I almost got killed by one of those people, when going to CP! On route 2 a guy in a Ford expedition was on his phone in his own little world while straddling the 2 lanes forcing me onto the shoulder. The shoulder in the later half of Lorain County are not exactly intact, so I was basically driving 70 MPH on grass. If I was not paying attention, he would have a big dent in his $40,000, 10 MPG vehicle and I would have not been able to ride coasters which would have REALLY angered me. And they thought the one mayor in Brooklyn was crazy.
Once I was at the park though, I could care less :).

I think the phrase "I need to get my Viper on!" Always seems to disturb me. (You can replace 'Viper' with whatever ride you're in the line for...or a ride you may not be in the line for...or a ride that's not even in the park you're at.)
I agree with DEK, spitting is digusting. One time in the mid 80's my parents and I went to PKI and we got on the Eiffel Tower. As we were going up the elevator the ride op. gave us rules and one of the rules was "Please do not throw objects or even SPIT off the tower.". And sure enough when we reached the top two guys with beer in their hands started chucking lugies over the side and laughing about the rules. I think my mom and I were kinda ticked off at that.
What I CAN'T STAND is when people COUGH, SNEEZE etc. then TOUCH the railings, and the lap bars, and other things PEOPLE TOUCH. Its nasty. ------------- "Does anyone know what type of dog spot is? A Cedar Pointer!"
I was stuck in a long line for Medusa last summer, behind a couple of teens who, how can I put this, looked like they needed to be on their honeymoon NOW!!! They were totally oblivious to everyone else. I can't get graphic, but the metal railing gave them really good support. Maybe if you're that much in lust, I mean love, you should be somewhere else. Sorry, but it really grosses me out. Hugging, kissing, and all that is cute - to a limit. What these two were all but doing was far from cute, expecially at a Park!!! What do you do in this situation??
