For all we know he might just be a cowboys fan and he does seem to get along very well with sandtrap and the other Dallas fans who vist this site.

He's also confessed to giving them rep points.

Oh the humanity!

Re: What's your pet peeve?

I'm a server, and I get so pissed off....

I'll go ahead and ask people if they've ever been here before, and they'll tell me that they haven't. I start to give them the first timers shpeal, and they cut me off and say they don't want to hear it.

Then all of a sudden they have like 50+ questions.

Maybe if you listened to my shpeal, you wouldn't have any questions you inpatient douche. So many people don't understand restaurants. From tipping, to common courtesy. It's so frustrating.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

People who misuse the term "begging the question." Begging the question is a logical fallacy wherein the conclusion of the argument is stated in one of the premises.

So many times I hear people say, "Well that begs the question, yadda yadda" with some smug look on their face like, "Hey, look how smart I am." What they really mean to say is "That raises the question" or "That brings up the question."

"Begging the question" does NOT mean you're just dying to ask something or that something is demanding (or "begging") to be asked.

Next time someone does that, go ahead and read them off that definition. Then time how long they stare at you blankly.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

When people here misspell the names of Redskins players/coaches. If anywhere, I expect to at least see correct spellings on this site. Some examples:

Carlos Rodgers
Al Sanders
Jason Cambell
Daryl Green
Sean Springs
Shawn Taylor

That just reminded me of one of the dumbest sign I've ever seen at FedEx.

Midway through last year we saw a guy drawing out a sign in one of the ramps that said: "FIRE" AL SANDER

We still mock this sign today but we're still not sure why the word fire was in quotes. Is it possible that this "fan" wanted to actually set poor Al Sander ablaze as if he were a 17th century witch?
Also, who is this mysterious Al Sander anyway? Did this guy not enjoy Al Sander's photographs?
So many questions... so many questions...

Pierson Preilou?

Peirsen Preighlough?

Apparently they really had it out for this guy:



(Google Image Search)

And yes, he IS carrying five (5!) pencils in his shirt pocket! That's enough to get anyone fired.

The real tragedy is that he isn't wearing a pocket protector!

Yeah seriously. When in doubt toss your best shot in Google and it will give you the correct damn spelling.
