Re: What's your pet peeve?

People who write "Betts Resigns" when what they really mean is "Betts Re-signs"

And then...people who complain when you point it out

That irked me until I stopped holding doors for people. I simply don't bother holding the door for people. If they are right behind me I'll push the door further open as I enter but that's about it. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, I'll still hold the door open for old people and people who have their hands full with children.

On the flip side, it also irks me when people hold the door open for me when I'm 25+ feet behind them. They expect you to run to the door or at least quicken your pace.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

people who use the bluetooth and insist on talkin as loudly as they can in public areas...i have a bluetooth headset that i only use in the car but when u r walking down the street and somebody starts talkin loudly in ur direction it can get annoying and misleading.

I'm with you on that, I'm much too portly to be hustling to an open door.

On that note, I hate when people try to be too nice and accommodating, because sometimes it can just cause more problems. Like when you're trying to make a left turn and someone coming the other way is trying to turn right. If they just go first like they're supposed to you can follow behind and it's no big deal; but, those rare times that they try to stop and wave you by you usually end up stopped in an intersection like an idiot.

Basically people in general are my pet peeve. I think I was a sociology major because I wanted to know what made people so universally annoying, but unfortunately we didn't cover that in any of my undergrad classes. Maybe that's a grad school thing.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

This one is for all the parents:

When your little one accidentally kicks you in the nuts when you pick them up. My son always puts his legs out like he is trying to pick up speed on a swing.

Easy SGG, we're just having a little fun. I don't think it was meant as a dreaded "personal attack."

I understand the mods' desire to keep things civil but it'd get pretty boring around here if we couldn't poke fun of one another at least a little bit.

It's not my board though, so if you mods think I'm wrong feel free to put me in my place. Just my opinion.

My next pet peeve: people who put me in my place!

No gotcha guys, I didn't realize it was harmless ball bustin'. Offiss has enough "opponents" on this board that I thought you guys were serious and someone else already attacked me in this thread and they were serious.

I've got a 6-month old, she's a little too wee of a tyke to be kicking nards yet, but I'll be sleeping on my couch and the dog will walk up and try to lay down on me. If I'm sleeping on my back, 9 times out of 10 I get a paw right in the nards. Talk about a rude awakening.

The word "something" usually comes out "sompen". GOD THAT GETS ON MY NERVES!!!



What is your pet peeve?
You're right. That is rediculous.

My pet peeve is when people misspell "ridiculous".

Re: What's your pet peeve?

You know, I've never been a fan of the term "pet peeve". It's either "I like ..." or "I don't like ...". Pet peeve just sounds kind of feminine to me. I guess men who use the term "pet peeve" is a pet peeve of mind.

Now I have to go watch Conan the Barbarian or Predator, twice (at least).
