Your pet peeves

Not necessarily snowboarding related. What small things piss you off, or at least irritate you?

Mine is use of the word "literally" as an exclamation point. The word actually means that what follows is not a metaphor but is exactly as described.

This morning on the news they commented that the very dry forest was "literally a tinderbox". So the whole forest was contained in a small box intended to hold wood shavings. I'd pay to see that!

I've heard some wit comment that someone "literally went through hell". I just wonder if they got pix while they were there.

OK, it's trivial shit. That's the point.

ooo good thread.

Well I'm an OCD asshole, so right there we got the perfect storm for anything.

really tho:

-people who don't use their blinkers when driving (speed all you want, make your intentions clear), what not good enough at driving to use them? car was cheaper - blinkers optional?

-semis that speed in the mountains, we get rollovers on a weekly basis

-kids these days

i swear to god if i could do it without getting arrested i'd spend one day a week sitting in a parking lot and i'd shoot every single person who left their shopping cart just sitting in the parking lot, without returning it to one of those little corrals.

to me it just speaks to how much people only give a fuck about themselves, and are so goddamn lazy these days. if you are so selfish and lazy that you can't return your shopping cart, and are just going to leave it sitting there to roll away and smash up someone else's car - you don't deserve to live.

also, people driving in the left lane, with no one in front of them, no one to their right - or open spaces to their right, driving slow enough to get tailgated by whoever is overtaking them - and they don't move the fuck over. what the fuck asshole? you fucking LIKE someone driving their car up your ass? you're obviously driving too slow for the lane you're in so MOVE YOUR FUCKING ASS

-Driving in general because people are so stupid

-And when people sing. I don't care if you are fucking Britney Spears. Don't sing around me. You sound like shit. If you wanna spend days in a recording studio then I'll have no problem listening to you. But don't just start randomly singing. You sound terrible.

Since we're on parking lots/malls...

What's even more pathetic? People who have someone literally (hahahaha Donutz) park in front of the grocery store entrance and wait for them, so they don't have to walk an extra 20 yards to the car. I mean really? Are your legs that fat and worthless?

Also people who block aisles and are completely oblivious to the fact while they take 2 minutes to pick out the right kind of bread. No one has any perception of things going on around them anymore, or maybe they just lack any shred of courtesy.

I hate it when someone leaves a light on for no apparent reason. Leaving the room you were just in? Turn off the light. Going out of the house? Turn off the lights. Done using the bathroom? TURN OFF THE LIGHT. Is it really so hard? That really is my biggest pet peeve. Others include throwing away trash into the proper receptacle, not just leaving it wherever you happen to be at, and rinsing off your plate before you leave it in the sink, or on the counter, or load it in the dishwasher.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

You forgot part B of that. Once it's clear that the dumbass isn't going to move over, you go to pass in the right lane only to have them speed up as you are trying to pass.

Burping audibly. This doesn't need to happen. Every time I hear somebody belt one of these out I dream of grabbing their face and putting my thumbs into their eyes.

I'm getting to the point lately where I'm just going to lose it one day and run one of these assclowns down. Not even the ones that speed up, its the douche bags that go slow (10-15 under) in the "passing" lane then after riding there ass for 5 miles you finally realize there not going to get over so you go to pass them in the right lane only to have them "suddenly" (more like on purpose) realize your trying to pass them so then they hop over in front of you in the right lane as your trying to pass as if try and make a point that you should have passed them in the left lane. I realize there's people that fly up on you and don't even let you have a chance to get over and let them by but some assholes clearly just don't want you to pass them even though they want to go slow. As if they know the roads better then you and don't think you should be driving that fast or something ... Uh hello the speed limit is 65 not 55 for a reason

Or when two cars drive side by side the whole way down I70 going 50 with a train of cars behind them, letting no one pass, Or dumbass/old people/ out of town/ tourist traffic as I like to call it. Then you get the road rage driver that thinks he can weave in and out of the train of cars and somehow get past the 2 cars up front when no one else could... putting peoples lifes in danger just to get 2-300 foot ahead over the course of 20 miles.
