Can we discuss pet peeves here?

Recommended Posts

I call someone and get their voicemail so I leave a message.

Them: Did you need something, was it important?

Me: Yes, that's why I left you a message.

Them: I saw you left a message but didn't play it, what did you want?

I have one friend that does this about 70% of the time and another 10% of the time he calls back as I'm leaving the message.

People like you who leave messages :wall:

I saw you called. I'll call you back. If you have a message for me, send a text.

Pick up the GD phone. If I call I want to talk.

You're not important enough for me to answer.

Standers at sporting events........If we all just remain seated we will see just fine and be more comfortable.

Disagree. This is a life saver at Talledega Race track when the beer starts flowing freely through the urinary tract. A painfully slow butt-to-face shuffle to reach the end of the row turns into a moon walk along the bleacher seats.

You've been around here long enough to know I don't need any help in that department.

Public sinks with the push down timed water... Fine, you want to make sure I don't waste water, whatever... But at least let it be longer then 3 seconds. I used a sink and had to press the thing down 6 times. I need more than a quick mist to wash my hands.

#######s that see the elevator door is less than a foot from closing and use their foot to trigger the sensor so they can make it on. #### you, #######. Maybe if you weren't 80 pounds overweight you could've made it to the elevator before it was pretty much closed. Maybe the stairs would be good for you? It is only 3 stories. Now I have to wait for the damn elevator door to re-open and for you to waddle your slow overweight ### over to the buttons. #### you.

people who give you the finger because you utilized your horn to notify them the light changed to green.

Around these parts, it's practially unheard of to honk at someone for any reason whatsoever. Which makes it so much more effective. The startled "Holy **** someone just honked at me" look in people's eyes when I give them a horn to wake them up at a light is priceless.

Huh? I think the ####ers on the elevator that don't try and keep it open if they see someone coming are the bigger #######s. And if I see you look at me and make no attempt to try and hold the door and I happen to make it on, I'm pressing a few extra buttons on accident.

Have a nice day.

So. When someone is on the elevator and couldn't have possibly seen someone coming down the hallway since, you know, elevators don't have windows is supposed to open the elevator door? Got it.

Have a splendid weekend

Try and reread the bolded since you clearly didn't really understand what I said based on your response about elevators and windows and whatever else that was supposed to mean.

Also, why does it matter if they try to get on when the door is almost closed? So if they try and get on 2 seconds earlier, it's fine, but after 2 more seconds, they should wait for another elevator just so you don't have to wait for the doors to reopen? What kind of arrogant nonsense is that?

Or those that are in the left lane and pull WAY past the big, gigantic, obvious to anyone not blind huge white stripe so that no one can possibly see around them to make a right on red. Of course, these people are inviarably driving there van big enough to fit a World Cup team or the pickup that could haul the contents of an entire grocery store.

1. Please wring out the damn sponge. If you let it sit wet it will get all rank smelling;

2. Please use your turning signal when closely moving in front of me or turning in front of me.

3. Don't give my things to charity before asking e whether I still want them...

4. Please make sure the front door is securely closed when you leave it.

5. TP should be set up so it flows from the top, not the bottom.

Ugh. We have a sign where I live that looks like a No Turn On Red sign but is actually a weird sign directing people to stop at the traffic line.

Getting flicked off happens to me twice a week from people traveling through the area that don't live here. I've stopped beeping and just decided to wait. People get all sorts of upset when you start gesticulating at them and the sign.

People who say "like" in every sentence and sometimes multiple times in one sentence. I took my granddaughter to softball practice the other day with one of her classmates (both are 14), and I swear I counted 74 "likes" from her friend in the 10 minute drive to practice. I won't let my granddaughter talk that way in my presence. I can tolerate it from a 14 year old (other than my granddaughter) since I don't have to communicate with them much, but hearing it from so called educated adults is sad. How do these people find jobs? I guess those who are interviewing them also say "like" a lot, LOL. It gets to the point where all you listen for is "like" instead of what they are trying to say to you.

I did a "Like" for this post.

  • People who, when you're in a conversation with them about something in which you're talking about something that happened to you, invariably turn it around to themselves; "Oh, yeah, right! And when it happened to me..."

People who always have to have the last text, last email, last word.

People who don't use their directionals. I feel I should have the right to carry and use a weapon to shoot out the headlight/tail light that they didn't use, since they don't seem to need it.

People, and this mostly applies to the work setting, who feel compelled to cc everyone in the world when the issue can/should be able to be resolved between the two of you. Hey #######, did you really have to cc your boss, my boss and their bosses to ask why the meeting can't be changed from 2:00 to 3:00?

People who, when they're going from an on-ramp on a highway onto the highway feel compelled to put on their left directional. Hey dude, what else were you going to do?

Technically it's the law to put on your left turn signal when entering the highway from an on-ramp. I agree with the other bullet items.

What I don't like about lack of elevator etiquette, are those who are waiting to get on the elevator and when the door opens they get in the way of those trying to exit the elevator. These idiots should wait for everyone to leave the elevator before trying to get on. The door won't close on them if others are still exiting for crying out loud!!
