    My pet peeve has got to be idiots going slow in the overtaking/fast lane OR doing the speed limit and refusing to move out of the overtaking lane because they won't allow you to go past them by "speeding".

    Honestly it really makes my blood boil! :rant:

    Another thing that ticks me off is the overuse of the word EPIC.

    It's seems everything these days is EPIC. Another EPIC video of something or another bla bla bla.

    Or an EPIC find of something as trivial as a common ebay item, an EPIC stunt, an EPIC spew, and EPIC burnout bla bla bla......

    The true meaning of the word has been totally lost.

    Cheesy locally produced commercials, especially those that use Godawful jingles instead of any sort of a meaningful message. They look and sound like they are made with dads old camcorder, and some very well may have been! Add a few kids and the family dog that do not add anything to the content and if feels like we are watching home movies of their kids grade school talent contest. Those lousy commercials are usually from local used car dealers or tire shops. What a waste of their money and my time.

    So us Cardinal fans aren't the only with a dislike for Joe? His dad was the consummate sports broadcaster, and we were blessed to have Jack Buck calling Cardinal games for years for us in this area. I don't know what Joe's issues are, but he's boring.

    On a more serious note, and at least several notches above a pet peeve, uncooperative drama-queens that must get some sort of twisted satisfaction out of peeing on everyone else’s Cheerios at every opportunity. And who made the rule that there has to be one in every situation? I’m sure that we all know people like that. That s#it just wears a person down after a while, doesn’t it?

    What ever happened to earbuds? Earbuds were nice; they kept the music to the one person that wanted to hear it. Now most seem to skip those and just use the "speaker" in the phone.
    The number of people that walk around the office with their own personal soundtrack following them everywhere they go astounds me. We aren't in their house, it is a place of business and I didn't go into their work area they came into mine. Beyond the choice of music there is the painfully bad sound quality blaring out of a tiny speaker in their pocket. There is absolutely nothing that would be pleasing to listen to on that.
    I guess it boils down to the standard 'screw everyone else, I do what I want' attitude that permeates what passes for society anymore.

    I had to renew my passport; it cost 110 bucks! That´s a lot of money for me :(

    I have to have my residency permit put into it, and that costs €67 :(

    It was free 10, 20 and 30 years ago...

    I guess I'm the odd one with that. We live between a large city and a small one. The small one's stations run a lot of the local commercials and I prefer watching those. Although I rarely watch anything with commercials that I can't skip past anymore, when I do I find the cheap local commercials less annoying than 90% of the big budget ones. It may help that I so rarely see them that they are typically new to me when I do. Most times when watching live TV I can only make it through 1 or 2 commercial breaks before I give up and find something else to do.

    But I do agree, leave the kids out of the commercials. There used to be a car dealer that ran radio ads with his kids in them and they were the worst.

    My health insurance premium. I just got a letter from the insurance company and I kid you not, my payment has more than doubled for next year. I'm going to look at another company but unless there is some mistake they'll probably be about the same price too.

    Any place I worked at had a policy that your music had to be audible only to you. Can you talk to your management?

    Anyone in the mid-south area that was alive in the 80's will surely remember Fleming Fine Furniture in Memphis. Those kids were SO annoying!

    I need a garden shredder since I can't burn the stuff anymore. The shredders from the garden center are cheap but of poor quality. The shredders from the specialist shop are great, but they cost minimum 700 Euros, but I am not able to afford that.

    Try a machete with an old tree stump or log for a cutting surface? They are very inexpensive here in the States.

    But they mostly work on softer vegetation and twigs, not so much on woody branches.
