    A bit of a peeve: internet posters who, when posting about spelling or grammatical pet peeves, commit multiple spelling or grammatical infractions of their own while criticizing the errors of others.

    Let him who is without sin cast the first stone!

    That is awesome. I usually just put a little hand lotion under the door handle. Let them try to guess what it is.

    For some reason all my cars are magnetic and just pull other cars next to them. I'll park 8 spaces out from the nearest car in the parking lot and when I come back out there will be a car parked right next to me. There are 7 spaces closer to the store between my car and all the other cars in the parking lot but for some reason they had to park right next to me.

    Love the parking notes but personally I'd like to leave off the 'you asshole' parts. Maybe I'm just a softie, but I think you can tell a person they're inconsiderate with a lower level of rudeness. If they're susceptible to the suggestion they might do better in the future, but would be put off by that. If they're actually an asshole, and there are those out there, they won't give a crap what you think anyway and will go merrily on being an asshole. :dunno: :D

    But there are some great ideas there, I can always make my own. I like the turtle one a lot.

    When I was younger, I took a more direct method of dealing with those who deliberately took up two - or more - spaces for their precious vehicles. I keyed them. It's as good as any ticket they'd never get anyway, because the lesson and the fine were built in. Otherwise they got off scott free and learned nothing.

    I sure am glad this "keying" thing is not common here in Germany. Not that I give anyone reason to do it. But, still, very primitive. Glad you grew out of it.

    You live in Germany? What part? I have always wanted to visit Germany because my family on my father's side is from there and there are still many of them over there. One is a photographer and I've always wanted to meet him especially and hopefully see his photos (many were war photos).

    Northern Germany, on the North Sea coast.

    I love it here, and never want to go back to the States.

    Mostly two-lane rural roads where I live and It's unusual to go anywhere without encountering some obstacle like a farm tractor, Amish buggy, bicyclist, roadkill, etc. partially blocking one lane. Seems like there's always a snot of oncoming traffic or a 'No Passing' zone when it's in my lane. But, then, when there's something in the oncoming traffic's lane, they seem to have the opinion that they have priority to just swing out over the center line to get past it without slowing down to wait for me to clear them ,forcing me to slow down for something in their lane they should have slowed for in the first place.

    Just happened - trying to log into a retirement account I haven't look at in years. Received the message "your username, password, zip code or email address does not match what we have on file." Well which one is it???? :mad: Couldn't they be just a bit more specific??

    Perhaps, they consider your account`s lack of activity(like logging on, etc.) as dormant, and want you to contact them to refresh it for them to prove your still above room temperature ?

    As a simple example with me, with a rarely used High limit Credit Card(no running monthly balance), Savings, and MM(currently over $50,000.00) deposited account at a Credit Union.
    If there is no activity for a year, they send me a pester notice/s in the mail about lack of account activity (basically wanting me to use the CC once a year and deposit some money, or write a check from the accounts to placate their ass`s, which annoys me since it would seem that they would wish their customers to keep static monies in their financial Institution so they could loan it out while paying me/other`s pittance interest and raking in substantially more loan interest profit monies on "our/my dough" !!

    Wasn`t this way years ago..

    Not my primary bank, but a backup..

    Just a thought vinowino

    My Discover card did much the same to me this year: Spend some money (charge something) for proof of life.:whip:
    Had not used it for years. :naughty: Charged a motel room, paid it off on first statement. Small pain for me, small gain for them, but they sent me a new card immediately.:p Probably cost them more to process the payment and send the emails than they made. :rflmao:

    oh, and "loose" when they meant "lose". that is a word that I would think English speaking people would know. But, noooooo.
