Pet Peeves?

Post by Stripermann2 » Fri Feb 10, 2012 1:59 pm

Thought I'd start a silly topic to distract us from this non boating time.
What are your pet peeves- anything goes.
I don't have many 'cause I'm perfect... :wink: Here are a few, I'm sure I can think of more but...

-Folks who don't know how to drive. At least do the speed limit in the number 1 lane or move over. :roll: Especially here in Montgomery County, MD.

-Folks who cross that SOLID white line while merging on or off an exit. That line gives drivers ample time for others to safely pass or merge in traffic. You can wait a few more seconds to safely merge AFTER that white line! :x

- People who will walk right in front of you while not excusing themselves- It's just common courtesy! :roll:

- Sail boaters who are exempt from monitoring or responding to a hail on channel 16. They are too busy drying out their wet bed sheets in the wind to give a damn! :evil: :evil: :evil:

- People who call you on the phone and immediately ask "who is this?"
Damn lady, you called me. Identify yourself! :evil:

- Paying for a COLD beer then finding out after the first sip that they just stocked the cooler 10 minutes ago! :) :)

Please, thank you, and excuse me...All pet peeves of mine.

Not throwing up a hand to thank you in traffic after you've let them in...Really big pet peave.

Eating while talking on the phone. YUK!!

Obviously healthy people throwing up the "handicap" tag and parking in the handicap spots.

Price of gas when you consider how many gallons I could buy with the CEO's Bonus.

People who pull out into the left lane to make a right turn. For F*ks sake, your driving a compact, not a semi-trailer

People that fly out on the highway and just got to get into the far left lane then at the last second fly over and jump off at the next exit! (only a half mile down the road!) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: One of these days one of these idiots is going to get an 80,000lb enema!! Compliments of .............? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Leftest that want to set pay scales

Being asked "whats in the box when we bring it to you" He11 you ordered it dummy !

those who call and say "I was home why didn't you leave the box". Well because the shipper wants you to sign for it and your lazy a$$ wouldn't get up an answer your door!

rag-baggers that put up sails but are under engine power, to get the right of way....

people who use their religion as a reason

leftest that throw the raciest and the homophobia card to try to win a debate.

Dogs being left out when you know we're coming to your house !

askin' us to bring your Total Gym in to the house because it's to heavy DUH !

hybrid cars, face it I have a gas 200hp KIA Optima that gets 38 gpm and they didn't mine the lithium out of Canada then ship it around the world on ships to to end up in a car for 10 yrs then in to a land fill when its done...

that's all for now I'll be back !

As long at that engine is running, they are a power vessel - whether the sails are up or not. Just grab your phone or camera and shoot a few seconds of video to prove it if you might need to.
