    Maybe more a rant than pet peeve, but airfare bullcrap. Just booked some non-business travel and low and behold a new way to upcharge - at least that I hadn't yet seen.

    Cost $25/head more, per flight, if you want to be able to pick seats. Not the upgrade seats mind you, but just for the "privilege" to pick plain old 29C et al, instead of wherever they might stuff ya at check-in time.

    How 'bout the winners in life who keep the high beams on because one low is out and they neither want to bother to fix it, nor want to be pulled over for having a light out?

    Adults who still talk as if they’re still I their 20’s. Upward inflections at the end of every sentence and phrases like: “I just feel like.... for meeee....”

    OH YEAH!! More of the (yes, I'll say it) Millennial lack of self confidence. The guy in his mid-20's who was interviewed on the street right after the NYC mow-down did it- pretty sad, and in every other sentence he uttered! Before the flames come, this was not a thing before ~2010.

    Related: The Valley Girl thing- there are still vestiges of it in current generations and it is funny to hear 30+ women having it in their speech (TV included).

    Sunflower seeds....or should I say eating thereof.

    A co-worker has taken a fancy to them. Eats about 1/2 bag a day. We have low wall cubicles and generally the office is fairly quiet. The incessant spitting/blowing sound as he spits the shells into his little cup of waste really gets under my skin.

    Got a trivial peeve this day... the cork in a wine bottle that either gets poked into the wine, or breaks off half way out the bottle. Irritating more than anything.

    So true. They are called indicators for a reason, an indication of what you intend to do, not what you have already done. We have so many roundabouts and the lack of indication makes me really angry.

    Wiper blades and headlights? That's interesting. No such rule here- we have tons of sun showers here, no need for headlights. What about when the guy in front on the highway cleans his widescreen and you cop water on yours- do you have to turn on your wipers and your headlights?

    169.48 VEHICLE LIGHTING.
    Subdivision 1.Lights to be displayed.

    (a) Every vehicle upon a highway within this state:

    (1) at any time from sunset to sunrise;

    (2) at any time when it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or hailing; and

    (3) at any other time when visibility is impaired by weather, smoke, fog or other conditions...


    The generality of it.

    It is not directly about wipers and headlights, but it is a good rule of thumb re. (a)(2). That point (a)(2) isn't necessarily about you being able to see, it is as much or more making your vehicle more visible to others.

    People who use stupid phrases because they heard them on tv and want to sound smart.
    WTF is a ‘laundry list’???

    Laundry list: Typically a reference to a long list of stuff that needs to get done. Sometimes to imply it's a bunch of stuff you'd rather not have to do but must do, like laundry.

    People who sit on toilets.

    Ones who refer to people as "ones".

    People who hydrate with water.

    Sorta like "protein" when talking about meat. What ever happened to using just good old "meat" when that's what you're talking about?
