I know this has been asked before, but I thought it was worth going over again:
Telephones (mine never seems to stop ringing) Junk Mail Infomercials Paul Milne Politics Gary North My current main magazine editor (a pox upon her house) and so on

I R S ;(
Same old meaningless drone blaring from my pts' loud TVs
-- Leska (firstname.lastname@example.org), November 22, 1998.
The Welfare state. "entitlements" (at WHOSE expense??).
Bandwagons; "hey, that's a good idea- let's copy it instead of thinking up our own ideas!".
McDonalds; KFC; just about every other fast-food place except Burger King.
And most importantly, the one thing that I would be PLEASED to see y2k sweep away: this ----ed-up consumer celebrity-worship culture of ours. It's decadent. It's screwed. It's falling apart at the seams and doomed anyway. And if y2k purges that, all the other hardships would be worth it.

And don't forget the armies of law-bending lawyers.

Traffic. Air pollution. A government that doesn't listen. The nightly news.

mainstream media, groups that seek to provide criminals with disarmed victims (HCI, CPHV, etc), most large urban areas, most liberals, and DC rush hour traffic.
-- Arlin H. Adams (email@example.com), November 22, 1998.
The judicial system, Johnny Cochran, Geraldo Riveria, TV, Art Bell, all free giveway programs, whining socialists, environmental wackos, stop lights, 7-11 stores, newspapers, magazines, and the deer that eat my plants, I'll have to eat them instead. Diane and Leo: Dittos.

I won't miss my frustration with the current state of affairs; i.e., Hollywood raising our kids, and CNN dictating what's what.
-- Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org), November 22, 1998.
Agree with most of above. Especially TV, maybe families will spend more time together. I won't miss the fast-paced society, trying to fit 28 hours into a 24 hour day. So long to the NEA, TV, government, and anyone else telling us how to teach our children. Oh yeah, won't miss my pager at all!

TELEMARKETERS, junk mail, infomercials, Tony Robbins, commuting, office politics,......

A bad pint of Guinness.

The idiot who gets behind you in heavy traffic, tailgates like mad, squalls his brakes when you stop for a red light, and then blows his damn horn one tenth of a second after the light changes. Memphis has the worst drivers in the USA.

I guess the post by Arnie Rimmer on Conectiv's 10Q is just an illusion. Help us out will you? Go up to the post Power: 10Q Delaware's power Company- and tell us all why it doesn't belong here but on North's and Hamasaki's sites.

And Bob, considering I have never talked to you before today, I can already tell I won't miss you either. Your answer is over in the Deleware thread.
