Re: What are your Pet Peeves?

People who talk in the theater.

People who use words they can't define.

People who wait in line, get to the front, and *then* think about what they want to order.

People who take forever in a store by writing a check.

People who don't use turn signals.

People who drive with their high beams.

People who drive with just their parking lights. (illegal in most states including mine)

People who slow to a crawl in a crowded parking lot to follow someone walking with their keys.

People who merge onto the freeway at half the speed of traffic. Or even less.

People who sit in the left lane on the freeway and won't move over for anything.

People who dump their shopping carts wherever in the parking lot.

People who think car alarms do anything other than annoy everyone in earshot.

 

I could go on. Forever.

 

Maybe I'm just a misanthrope. :smileylol:

Re: What are your Pet Peeves?

Most of my peeves have helped me develop a kickin' case of road rage. BLINKERS! PLEASE! 

Other things that bother me are the lack of common courtesy, and I have come to a the point of enjoying yelling "YOU'RE WELCOME" at strangers who say nothing when I have held the door open for them. (This happens almost daily)

People who can't feed their children but have 25 animals. 

And Walmart.

I saw an emotional moment between two squirrels today, and one was dead. One was dead due to being hit by a car. The other came up to it and nuzzled up to it as I approached. And just as I accelerated I thought of you, and your squirrels.

Or worse, no lights at dusk/dawn. $10 says that if asked the person driving with no lights will respond "I can see just fine".

 

Well.... I'm sure you can.

Agreed. The whole point of low beam headlights is so others can see YOU.

I'm pretty sure you just witnessed squirrel cannibalism; or at the very least a pickpocket.
