    When my wife waits until I turn off the truck to collect her stuff, check her makeup, etc... then we can exit to do what we came to do.
    Every. Time.

    Mine hollered from the back room that she was 'almost ready'. That meant she only had to brush her teeth, collect some stuff, go in the kitchen for snacks to bring with, etc., etc. Gotta love em. I've gotten used to it, and the only reason I really want to know just how long I'll have to wait, is that I could go out in the driveway and pull some weeds or water the pots or maybe wax the car if I just knew I had that kind of time. :D

    The latest in parking techniques, at the grocery store on July 4.

    It was on the end of the row, so technically they weren't taking up two spaces, but there's a very busy entrance at the end of that row and their @$$ was hanging out in traffic.

    Collecting these parking photos has become a bit of a fun hobby. :p

    My wife and daughter are the same. They will call out that they are "coming" while remaining rooted to the same spot they were already in, usually at the bathroom sink. Fortunately the flower bed next to the driveway has plenty of weeds to be pulled, so I go do that no matter their response, I even have some wet-wipes in the car for quick hand-cleaning once they finally leave the house.

    The over usage of "actually".

    Words pronounced incorrectly. A great example is "supposedly" pronounced as "supposebly"! There's no B in the word!!

    Is that a mispronunciation or just a fabrication of a word that never existed?

    Irregardless has been mentioned before but, with regard to “regardless”, I will bring it up again, irregardless.

    People who don't read an AK thread before posting.

    I grow annoyed with threads where someone asks a question about what to do, is offered several options, picks one, and then bumps the thread weeks later when they report back on positive results; only for someone to read just the first post, and then suggest more solutions for the problem that has already been fixed.

    I had that thing printed out, need to make some copies! I should adorn each vehicle after taking its picture.:rflmao:

    Someone needs to come up with an alternative sign for the case where they don't pull into the space all the way and leave their rear end hanging out 3 or 5 into the lane. Technically they're inside the lines so Mr. Turtle doesn't work. :idea: Any ideas?

    One of my biggest internet pet peeves is posters who use "ECT" instead of "ETC," for ETCETERA ("and so forth"). To me that indicates a minimally educated (or uneducated) buffoon who's intellect is smaller than their id. LOOK IT UP on google. This opinion may cause a firestorm of replies from some people, but consider the source, and that this is a very challenging thread! This is my opinion, and not a 'condemnation' of others opinions, just a reply to the OP's original posting question about "pet peeves." Forgive me (or not) for posting a 'harsh' opinion. Go for lightspeed!!


    EDIT: multiple textual edits.
