    Angry Pet Peeves

    Do tell!




    I'll begin with (some of) my "Apartment Hunting" peeves.

    Listings with:
    • Nonsense space-fillers (LQQK!!!!, AAA+++ Megamint!!!! Doubleplus Prime!!! OMG!!!)
    • Outright lies (12 bedrooms for $1 a month!!!!!!)
    • LOLcat spelling (SPASHUS!!! ROMMY!!!! SOOPER KLOSE TO TRANZPATASHUNS!!!)
    • More outright lies (Manhattan listing! ONLY 80 MILES TO MANHATTAN!!!)
    • Vague Threats? (Killer Views!!! Eye-stabbingly Sun Drenched!!! Cock-punchingly close to midtown!!! HEART ATTACK INDUCING CROWN MOLDINGS!!!! AAAAHHHHH!!! I WAS JUST RAPED BY THE CLOSENESS OF THE BRAND-NEW WASHER AND DRYER!!!!)
    • Even more outright lies (Stunning 2 square foot chef's kitchen!!!! IT'S A 2ND BEDROOM OR A CLOSET!!!)
    • Exclamation Point Overload (WILL!!! NOT!!!! LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!! CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! N!!O!!!W!!!!!!!)

    You're so fussy, Beverly.
    I am the beginning. The end. The one that is many.

    One of my pet peeves is that some people seem to think it's okay to type just about anything as long as they put after it.

    Example: your dress is kind of ugly

    WTF! You just insulted me, except you're not (wo)man enough to actually say what you want to say, so you try to make it a joke. And I'm not allowed to get mad, 'cause is a get out of jail free card or something.

    I hate crumbs in butter.

    This is more of a major annoyance than a pet peeve, but people who go
    "oh you're from Nova Scotia? I know a guy from PEI/NB/NL, do you know him?"
    "Probably not, as I'm from Nova Scotia and he's not."
    "Oh it's all the same thing out there, I bet you do know him!"

    Foods touching each other on a plate is an ABOMINATION.

    Sticking together is what good waffles do, Erin.

    Pet peeve - people confusing "then" and "than." And people telling me they could care less.

    If it's two waffles, that's okay. If it's waffles and scrambled eggs fraternizing on a plate, then we have a problem.

    Ugh Listings for Manhattan are so annoying. 3/4 of the pictures arent even representative of the listed apartment. I'm also convinced that some of the listings are ENTIRELY fictitious and exist only to get suckers to call brokers.

    My mother was bad for saying "could care less" and I'd always say "you could care less? Go for it then".

    One that I can think of is when I'm driving. I can't stand it when someone is in such a hurry that they jump out in front of me making my slam on my brakes only to turn off 100 yards later.

    Oooh, and people who can't use objective and nominative case pronouns, but think they are using them correctly. "Just between you and I," it should be just between you and me, kthnx.

    My brother used to take his corn and mashed potatoes and mix them all up. I gagged every time. Honestly.

    I hate when people don't wait for others to exit an elevator before they try to charge into it. I understand sometimes you don't see that there are people in it. You can tell when they just don't care and haul in there, then look at you all annoyed.

    I used to be really funny about foods touching each other. But now? Some of you should never ever see me eating. My ultimate comfort foods generally involve everything on my plate getting along quite intimately.

    people from Boston pronouncing Splenda as "splender" as if all of a sudden now they have the ability to pronounce their "r's" even though it's not needed in this case.
