The Pet Peeve Thread

I will excuse bank robbers because they need a quick getaway.

I knew we could find some common ground in our opposite opinions.

Our corporate site does not allow backing into parking spaces if you do the lpo's will be on your can quickly. The reason? It's hurts the plants because of the tailpipe blowing noxious gasses on them. Glad I don't work over there.

HaHa. Modern cars produce mostly CO2 = plant food. Brilliant.

Since I took over cooking and don't burn our dinner, my wife's plants have gone down hill for exactly that reason.

Hotel rooms where the shower/tub defaults to plugged, and are difficult-to-impossible to unplug.

Watching a show on the DVR and sitting through the annoying commercials because you forgot you're watching it on the DVR.

I also am peeved by hotel showers with knobs that aren't intuitive:

I don't know who the jackass was that thought a single knob was more intuitive or effective than separate knobs for hot and cold. It's probably the same jackass that invented the sink faucets that you have to hold down to get water.

On the flip side, this morning I was watching the MLBN broadcast of yesterday's Tigers v Yankees game and twice tried to fast forward. I had set the DVR to record the game but was able to catch the tape delay broadcast "live" yet kept thinking I was watching the recording of it. You can call it a pet peeve, I will label my own actions as just being a dummy.

At the YMCA my family attends, they have a gentleman confined to a wheelchair that works there. With the caveat that I am more than happy that a person with physical limitations is offered an opportunity to contribute, my peeve is with how they utilize him.

With this man's limitations, it takes anywhere from 30 to 45 seconds for him to scan an ID card (scanning the card is a YMCA requirement). On Saturday mornings, they offer swimming lessons and, about every 20 minutes, a group of anywhere from 20 to 30 young kids (accompanied by their parents) are trying to get in to the facility for their lessons.

Obviously with anywhere from 30 - 40 people trying to scan in (each with an ID card), it is creating a long line. Anyone with small children knows that it is hard enough to get them out of the house (especially in winter) on time and how patient they can be while standing in line.

Hopefully the YMCA figures this out since they've recently expanded the amount of swim lessons at this facility.

Dumbheads who blow big bucks on a Lamborghini then drive it ten miles under the speed limit. Got stuck behind one today for several miles. What the heck?

Was that you? I never realized you were that old. And what were you thinking buying a white one? UGLY.

(Sorry about the middle finger when I finally passed you.)

The morning after the big snow, I flipped on two different channels to see what the tally was. The weathercast on each showed the current temperature, the radar indicating snow was no longer in the area, and the forecast for today through Friday. Nothing on how much snow we just got. When did that start?

I was always used to knowing how much snow fell everywhere from growing up in Michigan. But out here it's always so difficult to find out anything, but that's probably because one inch shut down everything that they don't care how much it was, just that it's white.

Even worse, I had significant trouble finding the total snowfall for my area online. None of the weather websites (Weather Channel, AccuWeather, NWS) seems to chronicle that information.

For me, it's exactly the opposite. I watch almost nothing live, but when I do, I try to fast forward through every commercial.

Sometimes I try to rewind when I'm at the game.

With enough beer, mixed with the right prescription medication, this is possible.

It's beautiful, but I'm TIRED of it this winter.

I won't be able to wait til tomorrow's 50 degree weather to "help" get rid of it today, so I'll be shoveling in a bit.

Enough already.

I was going to put this in my new misconceptions thread, but it is really not a misconception more of a peeve...which fits here!

Current advertising....as a whole seems weak and written by amateurs.

What I am talking about:

A commercial on the radio for Citizens bank talking about home equity loans. Multiple things wrong with it or things that made me shake my head and wonder if people actually buy this crap they sell:

1. How many people actually have equity in their home right now anyway?

2. Commercial opens with "Oh I really want a new kitchen!"

3. Later in the commercial they talk about how 'jealous' your neighbors will be because of that new kitchen.

Are you kidding me?

Yeah let's go further in debt and pay 3-4 times more for that kitchen in the long run to 'show up' the neighbors.

Now Home lines of credit can make sense in certain circumstances, but 'to show up your neighbors'?
