    SCROE.....

    MY PET PEEVE IS LIVING WITHIN THE CONFINES OF ANOTHER PERSONS OR GROUPS PERSONAL PREFERENCES !!!

    But that's just one of them, but really.....what these days doesn't burn your hide. I wish it was like the old days where the only things you couldn't avoid was death and taxes. Now, the use of technology has made commercialism omni present.

    Trying to shop and the turtle lady in front of you is bad enough, but then you begin to hear her thighs rubbing together, boy that sends me into aisle rage! Then she breaks into the walking farts and I am outta there.

    My peeve about supermarkets is when people swing their shopping trollies out into the middle of the isle as if they were the only ones in the store. When I worked in a supermatket, sometimes I would see two women chatting in the middle of the isle and their trollies both completely blocking the isle. When I had to push a pallet trolly down the isle I just shouted "coming through!" Saying "excuse me" fell on deaf ears.

    I think I mentioned it before in this thread, but while we are on the shopping cart rants- people who push carts in tiny thrift stores! Are you really going to buy enough crap to need a cart? No, they just want a rolling shelf for their 48lb duffle-purse. Then they look right past you as if you don't exist when they are blocking the aisle. Unless, that is, you are blocking something they want to look at, then you'll get the "sigh". Beat it lady. Doilies and straw-stuffed teddy bears are over there, this is the electronics shelf.

    Here is one I've been noticing lately:

    People who drive cars and wear ear buds at the same time. Why would you willingly compromise your level of awareness while driving a car? What if you can't hear the siren of an emergency vehicle approaching?

    Bonus points if you're wearing a hoodie (with the hood up).

    Just got reminded of this pet peeve: When grocery stores and walmart type stores close certain entrances at certain times. I'm not so bothered when they do it in the wee hours of the morning, but a busy grocery store in a relatively safe suburb closing their normal main entrance at 9:30 on a Friday is ridiculous.

    Quite a few times I've parked at one end of the store only to have that entrance close while I'm in the store. A few times I've even walked all the way to that entrance only to find it closed, have to walk back to the other entrance to exit and then back down to the other to my car.

    Ok, while I'm at the store, here is another: Juice labeled as 100% juice that is neither 100% of the juice it states to be (i.e. "Cranberry" juice thats made from other juices) NOR IS IT even 100% juice because it has other preservatives and chemicals! How in the hell can they get away with calling it 100% juice if it has other ingredients?!?!!? Where did these people go to school and learn percentages?! If you read the small print it says "made from 100% juice" WTF??

    I'm in a state park inn right now that's very similar to a hotel.
    Peeves:
    Letting room doors slam at any hour much less at 10 pm.
    Loud actions/voices in the hallway.
    Kids running up and down said hallway.

    Learned this last weekend: When stating in a hotel you didn't know is "pet friendly" and they place someone with a constantly yipping dog is next door. They didn't want to move me until I had them come to my room to hear it. Then they upgraded me.

    One time when I worked for Swift, I moved over to let another semi onto an interstate. When I was moving back over, he blew his air horn at me and almost rear ended me trying to stop me from moving back over. Then, he threatened to side swipe me as he passed. I'll never move over for him again.

    I hate "scroe" too for the same reason.

    I'm totally with you on that one. We stay in hotels a lot and people are completely inconsiderate. Quite often the maintenance and housekeeping staff will be be walking the halls very early in the morning with their 2-way radios on very loud. Given that they work in hospitality, how can they be so insensitive to that??

    I can't stand irresponsible pet owners and traveling ones are the worst. When we started traveling with our dog for the first time we were super conscientious about noise. When we are in the room with him the only time he barks is when someone knocks on the door (which is rare since we don't order room service and keep the do not disturb sign up) and we stop him immediately. When we are out I always have him on a monitored webcam (with motion and sound notification) so that if he were to start making noise we'd know right away. When we first started taking him and we didn't know how he'd do we'd wait in the hall monitoring the webcam to make sure he didn't start fussing. A few times he did and we had to come right back but once he got the hang of traveling he doesn't make a sound when we are gone. He's always kenneled if we are out of the room. He's only 5 pounds btw, I can't imagine traveling with a big dog. I've complained about a barking dog even when we were with our own dog in a pet friendly room. There is no excuse for traveling with and not properly training a dog. If he can't behave, then you don't travel with him and you sure as heck don't leave him alone in the room to bark.

    Damaged the exteriour part (transparent plastic) of the left tail light of my Golf today. The hole is about 5 square centimeters big (bit more than two inch). I have to replace the entire unit which costs 100 Euros. Put insulating tape on the hole.

    Hilight of a series of mishaps today.

    I know that it has been mentioned previously but recently I have been noticing an increasing number of close calls that are caused by people that use the center turning lane to merge into traffic. I saw two such instances on my way home from work yesterday. One of them happened right next to me and certainly would have involved multiple vehicles, mine included. Kudos to a very aware young lady that was using the turning lane correctly and a very fortunate small space in oncoming traffic. Her quick thinking and fast reaction kept us all from ending up in a tangled mess. If the battle scars on the vehicle are any indication, I am sure that the offending driver of the SUV that was attempting to merge has no idea that what they did was illegal and very dangerous. I doubt that was their first offense. Their next one could be their last one though.
