Can we discuss pet peeves here?

Recommended Posts

If you're in a public restroom...And there are more than two urinals.

Do NOT stand directly next to mine unless you have to.  You always leave a gap urinal.

What the heck man?

And yet they still package light bulbs made of thin glass in open ended containers.

I swear I heard people back in the 70s asking if there was a cool place for them to hang out.

Yes, and I've succumbed to Mrs. Mojo's advice of "just get the scissors".

Glad I'm not the only one.  And it's not every type of cereal.  Some are easy, some require the Jaws of Life.

If you love your dog so much, why don’t you put a leash on it so it doesn’t run into traffic.

I dont care how good you think little fido is, when a wild turkey or a baby deer jumps out of the bushes and runs there is a very high probability your dog will either chase it or be startled and run away, possibly into the road or even onto a metal grate. Or when i saw a dumb lady walking with her dog that was 25 feet ahead of her and shredding a mcdonalds bag that another great member of society had thrown out the window. Yeah sorry lady he isnt listening to you, there is half a mcmuffin in there and your obedient little k9 is still going to town. Um maam, you dropped this mcdonalds trash that your dog tore apart. Oh thats not yours? Weird, i swear it wasnt in 50 pieces before. 

I hate when they have the leash around their neck too.

The new high waisted jean craze.  

Used to be a hot girl sat down and once in a while you could see her underwear poking up over her jeans.   Always a nice little peek.

Now...Gone.

Just follow the Iron Shiek Family Plan, only use each jar one time then buy a new one.

Wait.  Did I miss something?  Or did I forget something?  Honestly, at my age, it could be one of those options or probably many others.

Our family loves ice cream.  We buy a carton of ice cream, it might be gone an hour after getting it home.  So we usually buy like 3 cartons of ice cream.  These two will scoop out ice cream from a new carton and then if they get more ice cream the next day, open a new carton.  I'll go in and there will be three opened cartons that are a quarter filled with ice cream.  When I ask why they don't finish the first carton before moving onto the next carton, they say they prefer the "fresh" ice cream.  :mellow:

Speaking about ice cream, does anybody eat only one flavor of Neapolitan ice cream?  :homer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYSBPo_mAD0

Who buys that? Straight chocolate, homey. 

I like to pour in some jimmies, add a touch of milk and maybe drop a few buckeyes in a bowl and mix it all up like at a Marble Slab. 

If you’re going to eat like a pig, do it right. :porked:

My daughter is on a homemade ice cream sunday kick. She's been taking orders every night and making our desserts for us. She's nine.

About ten days ago we went to the store and bought:

1. Vanilla ice cream

2. Oreo cookies to crush up

3. Pecans

4. Chocolate syrup

5. Strawberry syrup

6. Whipped cream in a can

7. Granola

8. Peanuts

9. Almonds

10. Pineapple

11. Butterfinger bars to crush up

12. Bananas

 

It's been awesome.

You people have some serious problems. Maybe you should ask for some government aid to help you through such hard times.

People that misuse apostrophes.  Especially as used with last names.

Example:  "The Simpson's wish you Happy Holidays!"

For real.  It's:

1.  Peanut butter on one slice

2. Get rid of excess PB on the other slice

3. Jelly on other slice

Yeah?

My old admin used to send out emails that were littered with this stupidness. 

”There are soft pretzel’s in the two break room’s for lunch.”

Or when the word/name ends with an s, they put an apostrophe before the s.

Most Sear's stores have closed.

I put the jelly on first because it's easier to clean jelly off the spoon than PB. I use a spoon because getting jelly out of the jar with a knife bites.

I hate pulling the pizza cutter out of the drawer and there's a little bit of old cheese hidden between the handle and the blade. It takes seconds to rinse, spin the blade a little and rinse again before putting it in the dishwasher.

How hard is it for a business to just remove a paper towel dispenser that they have no intention to ever fill since they want you to use the air hand dryer instead?

Is that really a quote from me?  I only remember referring to the thing you put on ice cream as jimmies.  And there's no reason for an apostrophe in that.

PB on both sides of the bread.  I like a lot of jelly (and a lot of PB obviously) so this prevents the jelly from leaking through the bread and making it sticky to hold.

Public restrooms where the toilet water is higher than the standard.  Nothing like going to wipe your ### in a disgusting restroom only to have the back of your hand hydroplane over the brown water. :X

No. I turned it into a seinfeld quote and intentionally misused plural vs possessive.

In a public restroom, any water in a toilet is brown water.

I've noticed that especially at airports, the toilet water is high or the seat is low.  Basically, the gap between you butt and the water is about 2 to 3 inches shorter.  So when you reach down to the undercarriage, it's like a game of Operation.

you're a FBG, so the annoyance with the higher water level should happen as soon as you take a seat and your Iron Sheik takes a dip.
