Pet peeve part 2

I'm tired of having to scroll thru too many postings to get to the new peeves so I'm starting a new thread. and my pet peeve is women who wait until their whole order is rung up at a store to get their wallets out of their bags. Then they dig for change and then put their wallets back in their bags and close everything up before they grap their bags and leave.

My pet peeve is threads that already exist being created again. It's repetitive and makes for a clogged page. :)

When the king speaks, fishtown.us would be wise to listen.

This Kenzo guy who keeps creating threads with a 1 or 2 line teaser that reels you in, then bam... an hour later there's a 9 paragraph-post monster that makes you want to stab your eyes out.

Also creepy: people who talk in the third person.

Clients who ask me to convert their video files to a different format because youtube won't accept them. Then send me a corrupt file and when I ask "are you able to open this file?" they say "No. I'm getting a file corrupted error." You know, maybe I'm wrong, but I suspect youtube doesn't play corrupted files. Dummy.

When drivers on Allen/Richmond drive down the middle of the street and steadfastly refuse to pull over to the right- even if there are no parked cars on the right. Like the y Mercedes SUV driver who made me wait at the end of the street just now. You go, boy.

text-walkers who bump into you, and then act as if it's your fault. i had this happen to me in suburban station a few months ago, and the woman was meandering around like a drunk person before bumping into me. i muttered a soft "sorry" because i'm a nice person, but apparently she didn't hear me and promptly yelled out "exCUSE YOU!". it got a little ugly after that point.

well hopefully they will be better landlords if they build their proposed mix-use on Frankford. When they wanted to build a 3 family down the block we heard alot of "but we live here" "we care it's our neighborhood too" That pic is not an anomaly it has been the general state of that house. Somehow the tenant walked past all that when she took her trash out yesterday and left it. I know we all get litter blow up and I admit I don't always get it immediately but this has been accruing for awhile.

My experience at T-Joes is always significantly worse than Whole Foods. Maybe it's because Whole Foods is bigger and people aren't on top of each other so I don't feel so smushed in by jerks? I also don't go to Whole Foods nearly as much as Trader Joes so I can't really judge.

The parking situation at the South St. Whole Foods is a LOT easier, even though I walk there 90% of the time.

What about the drivers who ignore the huge line of cars on Girard waiting to get onto 95N and speed up the left lane and then cut in at the last minute. Total move.

To get through the 'Chew,' however, we may need to break out the whiskey. And grenades.

This is especially egregious at the drive-thru. It's for people who just want to get their coffee and go. If you're buying sandwiches, donuts and drinks for your entire extended family, you should probably park the car and go inside.

I don't know if this counts as a pet peeve, but this is something that I think is dumb that most people seems to think is a perfectly find thing for a man to do, and that is bringing a photo to get your hair cut. I mean, if a gal does it, that's understandable, because there are endless possibilities with gals. For a guy it's a bit ridiculous. A man should be able to describe his haircut in twenty words or less, like this:
- It parts here, just cut it.
- Same as last time.
- Buzz cut. (two words, done.)
- Haircut, please.
- #2 on the sides, spike the top, leave the back. (That was the longest explanation I could imagine, and it was only eleven words, so twenty is plenty, mister fussypants. By the way, don't get that hair cut. It's babe repellant.)
When you bring a picture, you just sound like "I want to look like this. Do your wizardry, mister Hair Cuttery. Make me fabulous." That's ridiculous.

Lutherie's picture

No one said I bash the hell out of them. But if you believe that nothing is going to happen if your parked that close you need to wake up. As for being the only spot I many times have to drive around at night looking for a spot I can fit in. I don't try to squeeze into one I can't fit without room. I keep looking till I find one.

george's picture

If you're able to get out of a tight parking spot by "banging" into the cars on either end, then I'd assume you could do the same by being a bit more careful--even if touching them is sometimes unavoidable. It's not as if banging into them is creating more space to do it.

Maybe you didn't mean for it to read that way, but it comes across a little malicious. It's a city--parking is going to be a real nuisance sometimes. If it takes me a few more seconds to get out of a tight spot, so be it.

Well that seems to be the standard on here. Someone says something you don't like and some of the members resort to name calling. I guess some of you feel threatened or something.
Ha you been called a tool and a nitwit in one day...GREAT JOB!

People who spell douche wrong. People who double park when there is room to pull over and block me from getting by. UPS drivers are the worst

Wherever you go, there you are

My pet peeve is people who park in the middle of a spot big enough for two cars. Also people who believe it is fine to park one inch from my bumpers boxing me in. Don't they know I have steel bumpers and four wheel drive? I can just bang my way out. Which I do!

What halfwit would need a four wheel drive in Fishtown? Buy a smart car.

Resident troll throws in the final blow! "ouch"I would feel some sort of way about this!

Well to answer that stosh someone who uses his 4 wheel pickup for work. I couldn't do the work I do in a smart car.

No kidding. Hello allergy attack. Man, try soap and water, it works.
My daughter bought a thing that automatically sprays some type of air freshner like every minute.
I walk past and It sprays me in the face, or I'll put some type of foodstuff down, and before I know, its being coated with chemicals....ugghhh!

There is an IT guy here at work who douses himself. The smell is so strong it actually gives me a sore throat if he is in 3 feet of my desk. He got out of the elevator once while I was getting in and I had to get off and take the stairs.

When I come home to find half a dozen menus and glossy flyers shoved in the mail slot just a few hours after the trash has already been picked up, and now I have a head start on next week's recycling before I can even turn the living room light on.

They do this on purpose, don't they?
