Text while driving. I know you're doing it, because the speed limit is 35 and you're going 15. Stop.
Next time. Do it. Serves 'me right. Drives me crazy.
Caring about what others think of you. Case in point, this thread. Just live your lives in a respectable manner and stop caring about other people's opinions. The sooner you learn this lesson, the better off you'll be.
It's more often a soccer mom in their s****y, disgusting and fuel-wasting minivan/SUV that engages in that behaviour. Sometimes with kids in the back seat too. Of course they are gonna assume it's normal when they get to drive too.
As a 22 year old which is starting to realize how the real world really works, I'm starting to despise even more human beings. Kids are really a product of the older generations. It's a very hard cycle to reverse too so I'm very worried about these next years.
About that group behaviour that's really just a mask to their insecurities, the differences in group vs individual are fascinating.
Social media has brought many good things but the real problem is a lack of ability to adapt to technology. And the narcissism that often acomppanies it combined with that lack of adaptation has catastrophic results.
"I'm an above average driver, so it's not a problem to text and drive" But it's statistically impossible for everyone to be above average really. Same thing with irresponsible dog owners. I could give another 1000 examples.
Just use your brain and respect the other people around you it's not that complicated. Peace.
Actually, quite the contrary. I'm impressed by the politeness I see from high school age people, often calling me "Sir". Kids these days have a much healthier attitude towards others than "back in my day". And by far, the vast majority of people texting while driving that I observe are out of high school. I'm pretty happy with the general state of teenagers these days.

Nothing. You're in high school, I expect you to be annoying little poop snatchers. The annoying ones are the adults who get annoyed at high schoolers for not being as smart or experienced as they are.
Young lads who don't know how to shake hands ... like men.
Spending so much time with your nose stuck in your phone instead of actually talking to the people you're hanging out with.
This, this, this ^^
Screen addiction is a real thing, and it severely inhibits my students' social skills and productivity. Learn to to have a healthy relationship with technology, remember if "it is free then you are the product," and "program or be programmed."
Find yourself an offline community or two of diverse backgrounds and learn to work with people of all types. When you enter a company later in life they will be amazed by your ability to interact with all types of people, and you will be setting yourself up for job security!
Bad pacing in races. Can't believe how many solid 17:30 guys I've seen start a cross race and run 5:0x for their first mile.
Drives me nuts.
not look at college decisions from a market perspective.
Playing video games more than they work and sleep combined.

That lack of civility is on their parents.
Personally, I don't care what you do, as long as you keep the music down.

I have not doubt this is true, but it's not like screen addiction is limited to young people. It's everywhere. For every high schooler snapchatting their way through class, there is a 40 year old who spends half the day on facebook or gmail while pretending to work, and a senior citizen who watches nine hours of cable television.
The only thing that annoys me about kidz these days is their parents.
I gotta agree with this one....texting while driving. I can't tell you how many close calls I have had with drivers while I'm biking, and how many times I see someone weaving or otherwise driving poorly and then see them looking down at a phone. Of course, I see a heck of a lot of older people doing this as well, so not purely a teenage thing. Just don't get started doing it when you first are learning to drive.
As adults overseeing the young population, what is the most annoying thing that us high schoolers do? (in your opinion)
Jogging across my yard.
For the last time, punks: GET OFF MY LAWN!
Always on social media and too scared to have unprotected sex. I would bang anything that moved when I was in high school

Agreed. I recently had dinner with a group of older Cornell alumni. We all had a laugh about how pathetic our own college applications would look to an elite university today.
Sry, not following. Are you implying that Cornell is an "elite university"? If so: LOL.
