Re: What's your pet peeve?

Just had another at lunch, people that don't know how to deal with a merging road. Specifically those morons that have to race by you at the last minute to get one spot ahead. I mean is it really that important to get one spot ahead of me?

Re: What's your pet peeve?

How about the life of todays electronics? How fed up is it that my parents still have a TV they bought when I was in diapers and the thing works fine, but I cant seem to keep one working for more than 2 years....if that. Not just TVs either, the VCR/DVD player I bought 2 years ago is now making a grinding noise when trying to play dvds. After trying in vain to watch a dvd yesterday for about 1/2 hour, I gave up and watched an old VHS tape. Dont you know my VCR ate the damn thing. F- cheap ass electronics that dont last for shit. F'em.....f'em i say!

Yeah, I can see that. But I dont buy cheap stuff. I look for a good bargain but I try to buy quality. I did have one tv that was a RCA and it was total crap but the rest were Sony, Sharp and I'm not sure the make of the DVD/VCR, I think its also a Sony.

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.
Last month I used my phone a total of 124 min. which is high as my office phones went out one day and I had my office phones foward to my cell. I don't use it much but like the feeling of having it with me at all times.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

I hate it when:

- People say "for a reason" without even so much as guessing or expanding on what the reason is.
Example:
Quote:
"Well Durant is definitely playing. And don't underestimate the rest of the guys playing at the worlds. The NBA is the called the best league in the world for a reason."
- Fans refer to an overall draft pick as a round.
Example:
Quote:
"Trent Williams was our fourth round pick."
- Fans refer to a player who has switched teams as traded when in reality they were simply a free agent.
Case in point:
Quote:
"that trumps both Leinart and White because the Cardinals already traded for Anderson which means they are shopping around"
- People refer to their babies age in month's after they turn one year old. I mean in that case I'm 300 months old.

The last one pisses me off to no end. Also, people who explain whytheir jokes are funny, and people who tell you how you feel.

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.
When I'm playing golf, my cell phone is on but silent. I'll check it at the turn if we stop for something to drink/eat, or if Im curious as to what time it is. Other than that, it sits in my golf bag.

My pet peeve are those who blabber on the phone while trying to order food or ring something up at a store. The salesperson deserves your attention just as much as you deserve theirs.

When people say "No homo" after something that no one thinks is gay.

Re: What's your pet peeve?

People who merge on the highway going way slower than people on the highway. I'm in North Carolina right now and the speed limit is 70 on the highway and I was stuck behind this dude who was going 45 like 2 miles past the on ramp. Which leads me to my next point:

People who drive slow because they are talking on their cell phone. Aforementioned dude was going 45 in a 70 because he was chatting it up on his cell phone and didn't notice he was going mad slow. It's not as bad down here in NC but up in the DMV it's a huge problem (DMV=DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia for you out of staters).

Buying something only to have it become obsolete within minutes...

Ie, a Miami Dolphins jersey... and within the week your cousin shreds his ankle and is released. Dagger.

Or you can have the female realtors that are cutting people off while on their cell phone, fixing their makeup, driving 85 mp, and not bothering to try to look back through their advertisement-laden windows to see who they're about to kill.

Well I guess my mob would be cool because we jsut say "no gay".

It's funny because we've been playing that game for so long and it really became a big thing over the past couple of years. Kinda lost the funny in it since everyone does it now. We only laugh when it's outlandishly suspect. I can understand though Quake
