Pet Peeves

    From people not saying thank you after you say God Bless You after a sneeze, to going to public rest room where people don't flush, to not getting a thank you from someone after holding an elevator, people are becoming ruder by the day. Are there any other pet peeves that bother you?

    I hate rest rooms with automatic faucets that provide neither volume nor warmth.

    I hate rest rooms with liquid soap that's rough on my hands (admittedly, that's most soap, and good God I don't want rest rooms with bars of soap).

    I hate rest rooms with automatic hand dryers.

    I hate rest rooms where the garbage can isn't right next to the door so that I can open the door with the paper towel and then chuck it in the garbage can.

    Yeah, I'm obsessive compulsive about washing my hands. Could you tell?

    It kills me that people treat public restrooms so badly. Almost all of them are filthy.

    Oh and my personal pet peeve these days. Not getting what I ordered at the drive thru.

    Stuart Scott---calling everyone brutha, cousin, a brutha's cousin, a cousin's brutha---or basically just anything he says.

    Linda Cohn---the sight of........the hearing of.

    Billy Packer---rinse, repeat-----rinse, repeat.

    The thought of Linda Cohn's beav. .... shiver.

    Seriously, bad food and service at a restaurant.

    Fast food people arguing with you when they screw up your order and you call them on it.

    Slow drivers in the fast lane.

    I'm down to poor driving habits (going too slow in the fast lane, that jackass tailing me like I'm going 20 when I'm going 15 over, no turn signals, morbidly obse women giving blumpkins in plain sight, people who can't talk on cells and drive at the same time, etc., etc.) as true pet peeves.
