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:

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.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

Just had to bring this thread back.

Had a major pet peeve incident this morning. I'm on the highway and I move to the left to pass this guy who is doing about 65 in the middle lane. I cruise past him going about 75, a few minutes up the road I signal to move back to the middle and all of a sudden the dude is right behind me trying to pass me on the right. Hey moron, pick a speed and stick to it. I hate people that slow down and speed up and you basically play this stupid game of leap frog passing each other. A minute ago you were going 65 and now all of a sudden you're going 80? WTF?

Re: What's your pet peeve?

People using cell phones while trying to do business or when your out and someone seems to have endless and worthless phone calls. I have made a rule on my boat that cell phone are not used to chat while out fishing. If you wanted to chat on your phone and not with the guys you went fising with then maybe you need to stay at home and talk to your buddies like a bunch of girls chatting. I also hate the guy who has endless phone calls while out on the golf course. I do understand maybe a call or two if its a work day but why play golf if you have to stay on the phone the whole time working. I had a buddy who brought some guy to play and after about 5 holes and 10 calls I just quit playing and told them to go on. The guy had this dumb look on his face and could not understand why I was getting ticked as he needed to chat on his phone everytime I was trying to hit the ball.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

Yeah people that are constantly talking/texting on their phones are really annoying. Personally I couldn't handle being that plugged in.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

We have this one soccer mom here that is basically a stay at home mom through her cell phone. She must check on her kids ever 15 minutes either by text or phone call. Her kids are 16 and 14, it is so f--king annoying.

My cell phone probably rings 3 maybe 4 times a day if that. I don't give it out to customers as I cannot help them when I'm not at the office so only my close friends and family have my number.

I am a religious CCer and these types drive me insane. I can't even fathom driving on a highway without CC but apparently most people don't use it and it basically just causes me problems. Fast slow fast slow fast slow. Sweet Jesus pick a speed.

My cell sits in a drawer at my house. My wife told me I had 0 minutes used in June. I only use it when I am going o na long trip somewhere other wise it sits home. I work like .5 mile from home so you can either call me at my desk or at my house.

Of course in the other thread I am talking about getting a iPhone which would probably be a huge waste of money for me.

On a scary note my 15 month old boy's favorite toy is a cell phone, oh no.
