Can we discuss pet peeves here?

We've been meaning to buy a ladder since we moved here, but Real Life intervened.

A step stool wouldn't help at all. It's a ten-foot ceiling.  We got a Little Giant Safety Ladder Four Step with bar.  Should be here in a few days.

This fits with a lot of the the other oblivious-type behavior cataloged here, but here goes.  I was just at the airport picking up my Australian brother-in-law after a marathon series of flights.  Once you exit the door from customs/immigration, there is a 10-feet wide, maybe 25-feet long roped-off path passengers have to walk down before they can head where ever they please.  I found myself getting unnecessarily angry at all the people that would rush to hug their loved ones near the end of the path rather than waiting for them to get to the end and step out of the way.  I wanted to yell "you're blocking everyone else behind you, you inconsiderate ****s."  I get it, you're happy to see someone for Xmas, but unless you're a little kid greeting mom or dad on their return from Iraq or something, you can wait 5 seconds for them to get to open space instead of blocking passage for everyone else.  If it had been be de-planing after all that time in the air, I may have "accidently" run someone over.

What the hell? Seriously, who doesn't own a ladder? Oh, if you live in an apartment, then I get it. But if you own a home, then right back to what the hell?

Edit: Mrs R, it's Christmas. Give him a ladder... and a 9V battery!

if you contact the fire department, they’ll change it for free.

We would, but we need/want that specific one.  Also, time is a factor.  Mr R is working now, and he'll be working at least 14 hours tomorrow.  And then we have a convention for the next few days.  Delivery is easier this time.

Hope that isn't s crappy as it sounds for the holidays, but imagine it is. Is the bosses name Ebenezer by chance? Wait, Mr R... Robert? Robert (Bob) Cratchit??

People who show up to a movie well after the previews are starting(knowing it will be crowded) and expect they will get a prime seat in the theater and try scooching the rest of us (that got there early) around to convenience them.  Hey big boy that smelled like he hadn't showered in 3 days...thats my mf'ing armrest!!!

My big one I forgot about is texting when a phone call is more appropriate.

Example: picking up from airport.  Get just landed text. No biggie, then it's the texts about luggage and where to pick. No I'm by the blue sign , there is a C then blah blah blah.

I just call them after ...where are you? Lol

Someone has to be on the job (he works for a bank).  He volunteered so that those with families could be with their kids.

In a movie theater now that is old style, not new with giant reclining seats. Movie's sold out and my legs are up close to the seat in front of me.

Two guys sit in front of me and throw winter coats over the back of their chairs onto and over my legs...then act incredulous that I'd think to ask him to put on his side. Other Incredulous guy still has his coat hanging over into the leg space of the empty seat next to me.

It'll be interesting to see whether the people sitting there will grin and bear it or ask him to move the coat. Such excitement.

Hope this doesn’t ruin your viewing of “Cats”

When I try to type out the word "some" on my iPhone and accidentally type "done."  Then delete, and retype only to type "done" again.  Then delete and angrily and deliberately type each letter slowly while actually saying each letter out loud as if the phone will hear.  Only to press the space bar and have the phone's autocorrect change it, as if it said, "I think you meant, 'done.'  Amirite?" :hot:

I hate when I type "tou" and the 6 suggested word fixes somehow manage to not include "you"

It would be a shame if your used napkins perhaps some popcorn ended up in his jacket, the hood if it worked out.

Would be awful if you accidentally

So it wasn't just me...phew.

This guys reaction made it seem like an insane request. I was about to ask if he hangs his coat off the back of his airline seat too.

Also- don't antagonize the person behind you in an oldtimey theater without leg room. I work very hard to not bump the seat in front of me...

Just found out that google voice censors my words.  I said a word that rhymes with "hit" and google decided to send it to my chat partner as S***.   How dare google decide, for me, to censor my words.  

So I went through and said as many as I could to see what google deems offensive and what it does not.  

Thousand dollar phone and google is being my Mom.

Autocorrect would be great if it were ever actually right.  How it comes up so consistently with the wrong ####### word is a mystery.

1) Sports fans that use the color Yellow for letters in their homemade signs.  Nobody can read that! 
 

2) Group pictures where the front row is crouched down and bent over.  The row behind them always looks like a bunch of smiling porn stars. Nothing like a family holiday pic where Aunt Karen looks like she’s enjoying the stuffing from cousin Brad a little too much.

This got me thinking:  If anyone ever asked me to do something politely I'd feel like a dbag not to oblige them.  You could probably get me to kill someone if you asked politely enough.  I'd feel bad not complying.

Never get when you ask someone politely to do something and they get mad and don't do it.

Thnx. 

I will work on improving in this. 

 

You got a link to Google to help a man out?

People that have to tell you they are thinking.   Can you pretty please stop doing that.   Also, can you please stop posting for a month.  😁

I'll sometimes ask for info if somebody's already talking about the subject- as much to get specific info from a known source, but also because I think we all like sharing things we know about...so I'm letting the person be an expert and feel good about it, rather than me googling something.

But if it's something dumb like who won the game or when a movie is getting released, yeah...Google.

What’s your take on group/family photos where everyone is wearing the same holiday themed, plaid pajamas?  Like 20 people.  From infants to grandparents.

I can’t stand when grown adults refer to sports teams with some stupid nickname like they’re 12-year-old kids.

cowgirls....haha, I called them cowgirls. I’m so witty and smart.

This applies to celebs and stuff too.  “I hate that Colin Cowturd he he he” is one I hear more often than you’d think.
