Your Pet Peeves

Post by codguy » February 14th 2020, 11:27am

I have many and will share more as days goes by.

- Fat chicks wearing leggings/yoga pants. Hello, it is not flattering and I might have just finished lunch.

- Members claiming they can't afford a $2,000 watch ("thats a nice watch but out of my price range")......... then proceeds to purchase six watches at $350 each. You actually can afford one Holmes, you simply elect not to.................. so STFU.

- Delicate Snowflakes ......... and those that are now "woke".

- "Gunrange Commandos" with their $3000 "combat rifle", wearing all the latest "operator garb", can't maintain a 6" group at 100 yards and feel the need to walk down the line offering their superior marksmanship knowledge to everyone else.

- Following behind cars with visqueen/tape for windows. Fix the fucking thing or park it, you can't see out of that piece of shit.

- Four door cars with huge wings installed...... nice family car pal, you got a baby seat in that thing?

- Autos at stop lights with bass/music that shake my fucking windows. Nice hearing loss Coz, turn that shit down and thank me later.

- Dyed in the wool Chevrolet drag racers whom hate everything Fords/Ford Engineering........only to see a nice Ford 9" rearend installed on their Bowtie.

- Vintage Ford rods with small block chevs installed....... FFS, put a Chrysler in your Mopar, a GM in your GM and a Ford in your Ford. Jesus fucking christ!

- Members that feel the need to double space bullet points, use a ton of periods (............), parenthesize everything and use quotation marks like there is no tomorrow.

- Forum folks needing to constantly start new bunny posts to boost the ever important post count.

- People whom feels the need to let everyone know what their pet peeves are and who promises to share even more.

- Members who solicits other members to contribute to their forum posts.

I,for the most part, agree with many of your,very understandable, Pet Peeves...............However, I believe that some of these "pet peeves" (not necessarily yours,mind you) might be "par for the course" for many members ,not just here, but of many fora.
But ,as usual...................................YMMV.

Hmmm... My list of pet peeves? Should anyone ask me about it, I'd suggest being careful what ya wish for, I actually might write down that list.

Some time ago, I wrote my version of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic...
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=47404
...but I guess the real "little list" of mine is far longer than that.

I would just like to point out...….that my Very Important Post Count has just reached 30554.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

movements called engines?
And what about the "wear in good health, bro"?
Anyways, of course I know what a pet is, so I thought this was another pet-thread. But peeves I did not know yet. So I would like to add:

Members who use uncommon to me terms and phrases in thread titles :mrgreen:

(I was really wondering, of course there are lots of English words which I can not properly pronounce or translate - but only few that I don't recall ever to have seen or read before. I found out now, that "pet peeve" is a rather common term, so that is really my own fault of course. About the word peeve itself I learned:
The word “peeve” is a noun meaning something that irritates or annoys. It was back-formed from the adjective “peevish,” which means irritable or ill-tempered, around the beginning of the 20th Century. A “pet peeve” is something that is particularly or especially annoying to someone in a personal way.

SJWs and PC Police generally with a special extra serving of peeve specifically for "cultural appropriation SJWs".

Several of COD's and Koi's that I wish I had been first with.

Learning that my unlimited capacity for the enjoyment of schadenfreude is, in fact, finite.

Cheaters.

I would but "anything and everything else" is not to be overtly political. Suffice to say I gorged on hippy tears while one guy's overreach was undone but reached my fill when the new guys overreach exceeded the amount needed to correct the previous abuses and then stretched precedent. He operates independent of the "barrel law" - the law that states that anything you do will have to be endured when it's your turn in the barrel.

I enjoy deregulation and the dismantling of the state picking winners and losers - right up until new regulations quantitively exceed the previous amount and the state goes back to picking winners and losers while being distinguished only by picking different winners. Neither Solyndra nor Coal will burnish anybody's CV.

Still it was distressing to feel the ever so tasteful hippy tears turn to ashes in my mouth. I thought I could enjoy it much more than I did.
