    Not pursuing a good deal especially when it's reasonably close to home; then it's gone. At least in this case it's only myself to blame. Maybe that's a regret rather than a pet peeve since it doesn't happen all that often but still. Damn.

    Got home yesterday after work at about 6:30 pm. Sun was still up, with a very cool stiff breeze from the NW. Walk in the house, the AC was running. OK well maybe the sun heated things up during the day.

    Look at thermostat. We usually run the house at about 76-78F. It's set on 74. Gee, I think to myself, that's kinda chilly even for Mrs. Tox.

    Look at digital thermometer. Outside temperature is 72F. Now we're people who like the windows open so we can hear the birds and crickets and so on, so the thing to do here if the house was too hot when Mrs. Tox got home would be to open a couple windows and let that breeze cool it down a couple degrees in a New York minute.

    I look for my lovely bride to point out what I perceive is a case of the lazies that future generations will berate us for when the fossil fuels are gone. Where do I find her? In the bedroom. Under a blanket.

    :rolleyes:


    The only thing that would have topped that is if she had the electric blanket turned on. :rflmao:

    Another restaurant one - You wait while they bus your table, then it gets wiped with a wet, grungy, bacteria laden rag leaving the table top wet and expecting you to sit down and be grateful.

    I hate when they reach in from behind unannounced. You know; to fill coffee or what ever.

    I had a waitress grab my plate at a Pizza Hut one time, it still had a slice of pizza on it. MY slice of Pizza, dammit !

    You don't take food from a dog. I didn't scream, "Prison Rules" ! I sure wanted to, though.

    LOL That 'happened' to me last evening when I was at a dinner theater. I wasn't finished my chicken dinner and this arm reaches past me taking my plate. "Oh, I'll take this away for you..." I told her.... 'touch my plate and you'll be drawing back a stump! I haven't' finished...."
    Oh, I'm sorry...LOL

    Triple pane blurred cell phone video. I know why it's done but it IS distracting and annoying to me.

    Oh yes- sportscasters.

    "He ran for a buck thirty" instead of one hundred and thirty yards. E-V-E-R-Y-T-I-M-E, with no variety in language.

    Aren't you cute.

    Which matches with mine of: People that hold their phones vertical when taking video. It should pop up with a warning that says "All other screens are wider than they are tall, do you still want to hold your camera this way?"

    And that reminds me of a real pet peeve of mine, irregardless. I hear a double negative there. Not without regard to = with regard to, just the opposite of what the statement seems to imply. Ack!

    It has been mentioned before, probably earlier in this thread. I just heard it again so it is still stuck in my craw. :eek:
