    Speaking of account login peeves... One site I use frequently wants you to change the password every 3 months, and the new password can't be the same as ANY of the last 5 passwords that you made up. That's insane.

    I do not agree on all counts. There IS a difference between merging and alternate lane come-togethers.

    What is the preoccupation with pronouncing words ending with "ion" as "in" instead of "un". I guess that's one of those things in language that is in a flux time right now but it bothers me, and I have nothing better today to gripe about.

    Lifetime Maps on your New GPS - not really!

    Lifetime Maps

    For all lifetime map subscriptions, lifetime refers to the useful lifetime of the device, considered to be 3 (three) years from the date of manufacture.

    I have never noticed this before. Could it be a regional thing?

    I don't think so as it has been becoming more frequent. Teen girls are particularly bad at this and I believe that's a major source. About 10 years ago I started hearing that group introducing 'super' in front of everything.

    I'm super happy.
    This is super cute.
    Ewwww. Super gross.
    That is super expensive.

    It's particularly aggravating for me when a guy does it. Super effeminate.:mad:

    So what is just plain old happy, cute, gross, or expensive?

    I REALLY hate that it has come into common useage.

    What I remember about my niece and other youngsters back in the 80's was "I'm like...". they added those 2 words to everything they said. A variation on that was 3 words: "I'm like all..."

    Yes !! Good one, Sir.

    And that popular & over used sickening "Valley Girl" verbiage in the eighties ~ nineties : "For Sure", after almost any statement, sentence, or question !!

    I really don't care that much- I was having some fun with 'ya, and introducing yet another attitude annoyance/peeve in American culture. :)

    How about 'very unique'? Hear that a lot in the media.

    Men. MEN, walking around with cells in their hand all of the time. C'mon man!

    Bonus if they have the constant thumb hover thing going on. Both are very effeminate looking to me because... well... that's where it all began.

    These people are called 'snowflakes'.

    You'd think SoCal is a year round winter resort destination with all of the snowflakes. :p

    People who refer to any carpeted rent-a-center speakers as "DJ Speakers".
