One of my underlings starts every email or im with "hey (name)"

Also a habitual abuser of "just wondering if..."

I do "hey" or "hi". but email only, not slack.

do you prefer "Dear Sirs"???

ppl that drive with their hazards on just b/c its raining.

Similar...ppl who do the "pull off onto the shoulder to avoid colliding with you" but in situations that really don't call for it. Its like dude we're in gridlock traffic, we've moved up maybe 5 or 6 car lengths without even getting close to 30mph i don't think you need to swerve off onto the shoulder and by the way you're a huge idiot.

Sorry bub. Book the window seat if you want to control the shade.

people backing into parking spots
We agree.

im sure this is in reference to supercab dualies in suburban outlet mall parking lots, but do you know there are practical advantages?

i think this has already been judicated here at length (maybe in this same thread?????)

It applies to everyone who does it and there are no advantages

I'm with kRusty on this one. Its stupid and just slows everything down. Old men like to back in parking to prove that they can.

if you drive a truck and you have to park between 2 cars, most spots you can't turn into without having to back up to straighten out.  then backing out of those spots you run into similar situations in tight parking lots.  much easier backing in and then pulling out (that's what she said).

A company I used to work for mandated that we back into all parking stalls with company vehicles for safety reasons.

Mrs Wacky backs in her large ass Tahoe into our garage every day and it drives me nuts. Absolutely no benefit of doing it either.

Have the never-backers not driven a car with the sweet new backup cameras? With those guidelines it’s often easier and faster to back up into a tight spot than pull straight in.

I’ll back into spaces every once in awhile. The only time I ever do tho is if I won’t be holding someone else up

I understand backing in for tailgating. Anything else is just trying to show off.

If you back into a space your truck nuts won't dangle out in the aisle for everyone to see.

I'm inclined to give big truck folks a pass. But in my garage, the vast majority are small cars. Simply no good reason.

I've never seen anyone back into a spot without straightening out at least twice. I don't believe it's happened.
