A condition affecting the body's circadian clock, similar to jet lag, but instead stemming from altering one's sleep hours over a weekend of hard partying and drinking rather than from a long flight.
Franks: "Shit, I missed fluid dynamics again. Monday morning classes are so rough. It feels like it is 7 PM. What time is it?"
Jason: "It's only 8 in the morning."
Brad: "Fuck dude, that's a serious case of weekend lag. Drink some fluids and stop hitting the riverboat casino so hard in P-town."

The overly slow and cautious driver, usually elderly but not necessarily, who manages to stay in front of you in traffic. They turn where you want to turn, exit where you want to exit, and go into the same parking lot you're heading for, and so they are always in the lead. You have trouble passing them because there's only one lane or else traffic volume is just too busy. So much to your frustration, you remain in second place while they undeservingly take the checkered flag!
Jack: "How come you're so late? The movie's about to start!"

Danny: "I was rushing, but I got stuck behind two or three gramps champs on the way here! It was so annoying!"

Quiet conversation that takes place between people who are sitting beside each other during some kind of committee meeting or official gathering. When enough goes on, and as sound grows exponentially, it can be loud enough to distract the chairperson or whoever is speaking, as well as annoy those who want to carry the meeting's agenda forward.
During the meeting, the mayor became so frustrated with all the sidetalk going on between the city councillors, she finally yelled, "Can you all pay attention to what I'm saying for just a second?!?"
