I agree with most of yours Glenn, but texting is awesome. There are lots of times when I need to insult CantinaDan, but I don't want to talk to him or waste time with a phone call. Texting allows me the flexibility to insult my friends in an efficient way.

The last text I received from xrmc20:
"Sitting here watching The Notebook and crying. Again."

My aunt used to have a dog that she named "peeve" so whenever anyone came over she could say, "this is my pet peeve".

Yeah, my family has THAT kind of sense of humor. :roll:
(it's a wonder I've made it this far in life ... :P )

I know it's me. I'm becoming the proverbial old fart. But I just don't get texting.

Not necessarily, Glenn. I'm still south of 40 and I think it's a waste of time. :wink:

Most of my pet peeves come from the absurd celebration of ignorance this country seems to perpetuate.

That, and people who stop randomly for no reason.
e.g. Walking down the mall, person in front of me stops for no reason making me lose my stride and/or bumping into someone else.
e.g. Driving down the road, person in front of me comes to a complete stop before making a right hand turn and there are no other cars on the road for a mile in any direction.
e.g. Someone starts telling a story, stops mid sentence for no apparent reason (not a dramatic pause, just a stop) ...

GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAY!

sorry 'bout that but it really peeves me off.

I'm pushing 60, so this will impact me sooner than most of you, but I am amazed by all these old people - you know what I'm talking about. The ones that look like God's parents - driving around. Have to look through the steering wheel to see. And that's after climbing up on three pillows stacked in the seat. The top speed is15 miles per hour. And God forbid another car should come towards them. They stop until the other vehicle passes! And they all drive cars that are at least as big as an Abrams Battle Tank. Then, in the parking lot of the supermarket, Mall, Wal-Mart, what-have-you, they are passed by snails as the creep along looking for a parking spot close to the doors!

All this makes me long for the days of Soylent Green. . .

Let me jump off that last part about them looking for parking spaces...because this is a pet peeve of mine. People who park in the handicap spots who have no business being there. Being on crutches for a few weeks does not make you handicapped. Having your grandparents pass on your car does not make you handicapped. Being fat does not make you handicapped. If all these moochers would park in normal spots, then the really old people who have a hard time even getting out, wouldn't be prowling for spots at the front of the lot for 20 minutes.

Vapid people.

Co-workers that are nudniks.

ANN COULTER

GLENN BECK

SHARRON ANGLE

90% of all deceitful politicians (DEMS and REPUBS)

People who don't have a sense of humor.

Well just to balance out the front page
Democrats
Obama
Clinton (any of them)

Texting
The need of companies- trying to make me go to facebook (exclusive coupons,deals and info)
Duke Basketball and its fans
Penn State (every thing about it, especially the alums)
Notre Dame (every thing about it)
Overly Religious People -- the Churchies
People who write checks in stores
People who write checks in express lanes
Express lane cashiers who want to have conversations
Speed Traps on open stretches of highway
People who cant count items while shopping before getting in line
Mattel defenders- there is no excuse
Jersey Shore
America's obsession with celebrities- especially the waste of space ones
Mike Greenberg
Books "written" by people you know can't even read one- (ie. Snooki, Lionel Ritchies daughter etc)
Time Out parents
Parents that let their kids scream or cry nonstop in a public place and just ignore them-- guess what its not working- they arent stopping...
Whoever created participation awards-- and those stupid kids sports leagues that don't keep score.
Whoever decided to change the SAT test when I was in 8th grade - 8 kids in the nation got perfect 1600s-- last year the University of Maryland had over 30 in the incoming class..
The sense of entitlement of everyone under 25 today...

Thats the short list..

With you on these.

Add in:

PETA
Tree Huggers
Hippies (and, by extension, a large chunk of Baby Boomers)
Code Pink
That group of anti-gay A-Holes protesting at soldiers funerals
Apparently healthy obese people using those stupid carts in stores like Walmart when they really need the exercise.

A few of my Pet Peeves:

1) Prejudice in all forms - Be it Whites hating Blacks, Blacks hating Whites, Anti-Gays hating Gays, etc.... What's wrong with the human race can people not just agree to disagree and move on.
2) Overtly Religious People (and I do mean overt, the ones that have to be in your face preaching at you, and you had better not be the wrong religion otherwise you are going to hear how evil and morally wrong you are - and I hate to says this beacause it sounds as if I am being prejudice and I am not, but it seems to be mainly from the supposed Christian People, now I have real Chrisitan Friends and they wouldn't dream of ramming their religion down your throat).
3) People who can't put away Shopping Carts, they just leave them when just two feet away is the Shopping Cart Home (can never think as to what to call them, actually have the Shopping Cart homes got names?)
4) Rude Drivers, ones that need to be in front of you even when you are the only 2 on the road, it's a Me, Me and Me again mentality.
5) Anyone with the Me, Me and Me Mentality, you don't always have to be first in everything you do, it's ok coming last or even worse second.
6) Scalpers in any form, be it the guy who claims he is selling it at the price that the item is currently going for on the second market, or the guy who swoops in and loads his cart with every item he can see that he knows will make money.

When did being gay become a race? :wink:

I think you mean "prejudice" in all forms. :mrgreen:

A few I thought of recently

Commercials than are twice as loud as the show i'm watching

women drivers, especially the ones who choose that time to do their makeup

people who think it's ok to stop in the middle of an aisle/parking lot/doorway to carry on a conversation

websense

fast food places being stingy with sauce packets
