Pet Peeves

What are your pet peeves? My biggest one is people who leave their shopping carts everywhere except where they belong. Another is people who don't pick up after themselves or their dog.

I went grocery shopping once and when I was about to leave the parking lot, a person with a brown poo stain on his sweatpants parked his shopping cart directly behind another car. The carriage area to put away your carts was literally a couple feet away. I remember that the whale and his whale of a girlfriend/spouse stacked their carriage full of beer and junkfood when they were checking out. I wanted to pimp-slap that whale so bad, but as a respectable member of society I refrained from doing so.

Love. Not Hate. Life is too short to spend time hating one another. We're all in this together

Cars that drive too close to me, honking through tunnels, noisey people, Mothers that don't watch or ignore their screaming babies, rudeness, liars, not keeping one's word, men that are cheap,.misplaced vanity.

When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping....

I know the feeling. I've twice had someone leave their shopping cart behind MY car and then taken off. Both times I didn't even have a cart myself and thought I'd saved myself a trip. But no I HAD to return someone else's cart just so I could leave.

There are 3 kinds of lies. Lies, Damn lies, and statistics.
People who throw their cigarette butts out of the car window. Women that hit their children in a public restroom and act like they didn't expect me to slam them into the wall. Supervisors / Managers who are passive-aggressive. Adult children who still act like you are mainly responsible for the results of everything even when they didn't accept your input. A half an hour drive from the cabin to the nearest store for ice cream only to open it and find it has frostbite.
Endless e-mails from Intelli-shop about the same fast food restaurant that nobody wants to do!!!!! They're sending them with various tag-lines to try and drum up interest but still just a minimum fee. ARGH!!!!!!!! Time to end email offers at least for a while. If I want to know about available shops, I'll go on their site. It's a whole lot less aggravating.

Me, entering a retail establishment where I plan to spend even a nominal amount of money, "Good morning. How are you today?" Sales clerk, staring like I just arrived in my spaceship from Neptar, "Fine. Thanks for asking." No return of the simple courtesy. That's one of my "hot buttons." A general lack of manners and courtesy, and a sense of entitlement are "right up there."

That whopping $2 bonus isn't enough for you to drive out there? /sarc

Road construction. I know it has to be done but it just makes me crazy. Whenever I drive by one of the many "projects" from Caltrans all I see are guys sitting around yakking. It takes years to complete and our freeways are stil horrible. I live in a rural area that has Indian reservations. One of the reservations paid for an update on one of the mountain roads. It was completed and beautiful in about 2 months. Caltrans really does take years - government at its best.
Bicycle riders on our mountain roads who ride 2 or 3 across, blocking my car, and either pretend they don't know I am behind them, or (more common) don't care. I can't tell you the number of times I have mentally mowed them down. While I'm on mountain drivers, people who don't understand that when they have a string of cars behind them they need to find a nice safe place to pull over.
Rudeness, especially when I witness or hear about customers treating employees as if they are garbage. I rarely see rudeness from employees, be it when I'm working or not. When I do, I usually say "Excuse me, let's not be rude." For customers, its different. I'll either say something, or just annoy them.

Another pet peeve is bad grammar, as well as people using $100 words to make a $2 point.
Math students who refuse to do homework... and then complain that the tests are too hard.
