The Bag Pipes

I also can't stand assumptions. One of my teachers in my senior year made this little "thing" about the word assumption. She said that when you assume you make an "ass" out of "u" and "me".

Are the Bag Pipes a band or can you just stand the instrument? I'd have to say that given other instruments and beats along with the bagpipe it can sound pretty good. IMO

I wouldn't mind as long as they left the sports section.

Messy people

What do you mean by "messy"? People who look messy? or people who do everything messy?

People who constantly swear

Although it isn't a pet peeve for me, it is pretty useless. IMO it's just an attention getter, but when people throw them in with a regular sentence it doesn't really do anything at all.

I mean messy as in leaving everything on the floor, and squirting ketchup and hitting the curtains.

The Sunday paper is MINE if i put up the $2- so i get to look at it first.

Little things like this.:shk:

Swearing is good if you stub your toe.
During normal conversation, if you're not mad i dont see the need to follow or preceed every word with @#$%.

I have another pet peeve that i somehow, someway forgot to mention. That is the following that most of us everyday and are probably guilty of.

That would just happen to be people that go around lowered crossing gates whenever the hell they can. Just because the gates are down, doesn't mean that there ain't a train fast approaching. I don't know exactly how many people I have seen doing this over the years.

However, we do have a few places around here where there is a traffic light controlled highway. When the gates come on, the traffic lights flash red.

As I have too many pet peeves, I will just say the ATS related ones. Please keep in mind that these are greatly exaggerated for convenient viewing purposes.
In no particular order...

  • When people hijack threads.
    Person A: What does the bible mean when it says "God is in our hearts"?
    Person B: God does not exist therefore it does not mean anything.

  • When people tell you that your opinion is wrong.
    Person A: Personally, I think that Russia is not spying on China.
    Person B: No, your wrong. All the evidence points to say that...

  • When people ask you to provide unnecessary proofs.
    Person A: The article states that it was a rainy thursday night when the ufo was spotted above Paris.
    Person B: Can you prove it was raining? No. Thus, this article is fake.

  • When people ignore or avoid the point, or facts presented.
    Person A: Nucleor tests are against International Laws, as seen in the above mentioned link. Besides, it dangerous.
    Person B: You spelt 'Nuclear' wrong. Ofcourse it's dangerous, but that doen't make it illegal.

  • When people demand imposible proof or information.
    Person A: Proove that God is real.
    Person B: Proove that God does not exist.

  • When people assume that they are right, but refuse to do their own research. Or applying their own reality. Even not looking at the reference links you posted.
    Person A: Last night in the news I saw that Saddam was to be executed.
    Person B: No, Saddam's trial hasn't even started.

  • Insults and Personal Insults, regardless of who is wrong.
    Person A: The 9th king of Spain was not King Robert II.
    Person B: WTF do you know?! Your just a dumbass!

  • Badly written posts.
    i think dat ppl need 2 learn to use propor layouts and grammar and spelling and stuff in there posts if they dont no1 can understand wat message your tryin to get across it makes ppl have headaches trying to desifer wat im saying isnt dat cool?

  • When people take what you say, or information provided out of context, or for their own purposes.
    Person A: Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated JFK because David Jones paid him to.
    Person B:

    Originally posted by Person A
    Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated David Jones

    No. He did not assassinate David Jones...

I think that's about it. Did I miss anything?

By the way...

I say eat what you need not what you want.

I can't and won't eat anything orange. No carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes...etc

There is one ironic exception though. I do eat actual oranges!

I didn't read the whole thread, but I have a few pet peeves myself. Sorry if they've been posted before.

-I hate being accused of something I didn't do.
-I hate it when I'm talking and I get cut off
-I hate it that when people talk to each other, and they say, "Oh let me whisper, he's in here." like I didn't just hear them say that.
-I hate people who condescend... a lot.

Other than that, I don't really get angry at anything.

-when I'm in an elevator, and the doors open at the floor I picked, and some idiot tries to push past me to get on, before I can get off. Then they do the idiot shuffle-step, and sort of sigh, like you're in their way.

-motorists who don't respect crosswalks. Back in the old days, I had been known to hold out car keys, and let them scrape a car that got to close. One time, a guy in a new BMW almost drove over my foot. I spat my cigarette butt out in disgust, and it went in the rider's-side rear window, which was open a crack, and landed in the seat. The driver ran up on the curb and hit a parking meter, trying to lean over the seat, and put it out. Who's vulnerable now, you rich puke!

-recorded telemarketing messages.

-people who don't park within the lines at a parking lot. I dream of getting an old 1974 impala with no paint, and CRAMMING in next to them. It was on private property dude, so I can't get a ticket. Sue me.

-people who don't wash their hands in the bathroom. That's why I don't touch stair railings in the office building, or let anyone use my desk or anything. I have a can of pepperspray that shoots a stream of oleoresin capiscum 30 feet. I just wish it shot lysol instead. you trolls!

-people who TOUCH the s**t on my desk. It's a workspace---NOT A PETTING ZOO!

When will it ever be a socially accepted fact that, the people exiting the elevator have the right of way.

I'm with you on this one. This really grinds my grits.

- People who talk on cell phones and drive.
- People who chew or drink loudly.
- People who suck on candies/mints and click them around on their teeth.
- Self-absorbed people (most of my in-laws).

I'll bet you read the Sunday Globe!

My pet peeve is anyone who doesn't realize that I am always right, and who don't appreciate the brilliance and wisdom of my words.

You know who you are.

psuedoperky people.

Smile to your face, talk to you in the slightly perky but mostly condescending

But if they have a problem with you, they remain perky to your face, and tell someone in a higher postion that there is a problem.

Then the person in a higher position talks to you about the problem that you didn't even know existed, all because:
perky talked turkey to the higher positioned jerky.

uhmmm..this should have been a rant I guess..!

I can't stand that either. I was going to post it myself, but I saw your post.

And they usually have everything all out of context, if you let them finish.

Then if I try to tell them no, that's not what I was going to say, they want to argue about it.
