Agreed.  I hate the ones that bike on the road and then on the sidewalk so they can ignore whatever law is convenient.  If they are on the road, I will treat them like a driver and make sure they are safe.  If they are on a sidewalk, that's fine too and I will treat you as a pedestrian.  Can't be both.  Pick a set of rules and I will play by them.

Voice changes while on the phone. Women's voices go up, the guys' voices go down. Super annoying if you are with a person you know well, listening to them do their fake voice to the unknown rough rider on the other line. I'd say it occurs in ~80% of people and I really hope I don't do it.

I bet you do it. We will find out soon enough.

Yeah that's not what happens numbnuts. I'm not bragging that my kids can retrieve a tennis ball or bark at the UPS guy. It usually goes more like:

"Good morning CF3, boy you look tired today!"
"Yeah, lil' CF3 got sick so I didn't get much sleep."
"Oh I totally know how that is! If Smuckers gets into the trash and eats a bandaid, he really has a hard time sleeping, so I'll softly sing to him until he can calm back down in his kennel. We put him in his kennel when he's sick even though he sleeps with us most of the time. Do you sing to your kids when they're sick? If I sing to smuckers he'll sleep really well and be back to chasing squirrels around the backyard in no time! He loves chasing squirrels and bunnies! What are your kids interested in?"

Few of my pet peeves: (Work Related)

*Worked at a grocery store throughout high school, then sometimes work there during summers to make a little extra cash.

-People who ask for paper bags. It's awkward to bag and carry out.

-People who bring in their own heavy duty bags then tell me to not make them, "too heavy." No matter what you're going to be carrying all the same amount of weight.

-People who bring in used paper/plastic bags. No, just, no.

-People who are on food stamps and use it to get really good food and any food they want, then drive a really nice/expensive vehicle. BS

-When people get the smaller shopping carts, but them fill them until they're overflowing, we have bigger carts for that crap.

-Oh, you guys close in 5 min? Let me come in and take my sweet ass time to get a big ass list of groceries. I didn't want you guys to close on time anyway.

-Well maybe I shouldn't get this candy bar. Let me put it right here by the rough ridin' bread Because I'm too lazy to put it back where I found it.

-here, let me bitch at you how you are out of this kind of pop or chips, because you're out of it even though you guys aren't in charge of stocking and keeping track of it.

-you got a cart full of groceries and had them checked out and now have no way to pay for them? Thanks, I'll have fun unbagging them and putting it all back on the shelves.


There are a lot of positives I enjoy of It too though! Those are just a few, "pet peeves."

Most content on this site is complete crap, I go in laser focused on a particular thread(s), which makes unread button worthless
I use the PRINT button and then sit at my desk with stacks of paper in front of me like I am working real hard. Then, I write out my responses and scan them into my computer. From there, CUT AND PASTE!

Sidenote: I get super annoyed with people that mess up song lyrics to the point of absolute destruction.  Chick I dated thought "don't go chasing waterfalls" was don't go Jason Waterfalls.  Dumped her.  Another girlfriend thought "I Believe in Miracles" by Hot Chocolate was really "I believe in Malcolm" and the song was centered around Malcolm X.  She thought "you sexy thing" was tied to his unique stance on segregation.  Dated her till she gave a handy to my brother.  Him and I are hand Eskimo brothers for life.

"Is baby drinking too much or too little expressed milk?"

Like, WTF is this crap?  Have we crap out kids and our brains at the same time?  Is it too hard to put "your" in front of baby?  I don't get it.  First noticed this in the delivery room.  Nurse be like:  "This monitor is for baby....this is baby's nurse....we want to make sure baby is okay...."   :curse:

People who misuse "of" in place of "have" should be publicly shamed.  It's so rough ridin' stupid I don't even know how it became a thing.  Not sure why I remember this but on one of those standardized tests from grade school one of the multiple choice options for completing part of a sentence was WOULD OF or WOULD HAVE and I remember thinking "What kind of a dumbass thinks it's WOULD OF??"  I knew the difference in 4th rough ridin' grade and anyone in 4th grade or beyond should know the difference too.

Puni's example of supposably is also puzzling, like where in the hell did the B come from?

It's pretty easy to explain, actually.  Many people write how they speak. The scurrilous "of" comes from the way "have" sounds when part of a contraction (would've, could've), and often times supposedly is pronounced supposebly because it is difficult to pronounce a 'd' sound followed by a 'l' sound, since they are practically identical in terms of how your mouth produces the sounds.  This results in a glottal stop, which slows down speech.  Since speaking patterns tend to follow the path of least resistance, many people subconsciously swap the 'd' for 'b'--a phonetically similar consonant but one that is much easier to transition to 'l' from.

Yeah I understand the thing about pronunciation but just because it sounds like you're saying WOULD OF doesn't mean you should type it out that way. For crap's sake have some standards.

Also I'm not sure I get your explantion for supposably but since you're this board's resident cunning linguist you're probably right.

Post by: Spracne on March 11, 2015, 12:21:00 PM
expecially, expresso, aks (ask), excetera are generally markers of a lower socio-economic background. It is natural for a child learning a language to substitute a more familiar sound for a less familiar sound.  "Ex" sounds a lot like "esp," with the former being much more prevalent due to it being a Latin prefix.  Usually these mistakes are pointed out by parents or friends and corrected at a young age.  However, if your parents and friends also make the same mistake, then it never gets corrected and in fact seems totally natural.  These traits are passed down through generations in these particular speech communities.  Somewhere down the line, groups of people started mispronouncing it and no one bothered to correct it because they didn't know any better, and speaking correctly simply wasn't vital to their livelihoods.  These groups of people would have had little or no formal education and worked manual labor jobs.  They all had kids who inherited this speech trait and it went viral.  It is obviously an oversimplification, but this is how regional dialects form. 

I'll bet that everyone here could reflect on speech patterns they inherited growing up that they later realized sounded incredibly regional/hayseedy.  Many (most?) people who matriculate to a University and/or become a professional actively work to remove these markers from their speech.  Ironically, many of those same people later integrate regional/hayseedy features into their speech in order to project or feel a sense of belonging in a community.

Definitely - I actually went all the way through college before I realized that human and Houston had hard "H" sounds at the start. I said "Yew-man" and "Yew-ston".

yeah, I said "worsh" growing up, and I remember correcting an adult who said "wash" when I was like 5 years old. Ha!

My dad also says days of the week with an "ee" at the end of them - Fri-dee, Satur-dee, etc. I thought the Tim McGraw song said "right as rain on a Thursday cornfield" even in college. It didn't make much sense.

cf3, i think maybe we've discussed before but do british soccer announcers particularly annoy you with how they handle plural/singular stuff?
It doesn't annoy me but it's very strange.
Title: Re: Pet Peeves
Post by: Spracne on June 04, 2015, 11:33:12 PM
I mean, an announcer could say "Kansas City is Driving" or "The Chiefs are driving" and mean the exact same thing.  Both subjects refer to a plurality, even though the former is singular in form.  I like the spirit over the letter approach.  A less controversial example would be "staff," which is often (correctly imo) treated as a plural noun in American.

pet peeve- when people use the the daylight savings acronym when it's actually standard time and vice a versa.  often done in work emails when discussing possible meeting times across multiple time zones.

example- "let's plan on meeting on july 1st, at 3:00 pm CST" 

obviously i can figure out that 3:00 pm CST is 4:00 CDT but gmafb why not set it up in BRST or SBT and let me do that math if this is some sort of time zone challenge?  :lol:

Well the pants I have on right now have fake back pockets. But there are also women's pants that have fake front pockets.

I'm not talking about small pockets, I'm talking about there is a fake lip of the pocket (whatever it is called) on the outside but actually there is not even the fabric on the inside that creates the pocket.

First of all I never pass bikers if they are riding in the middle of the street. Second there have been times where a cyclist has been on the right side of the road and they just swerve left onto a side street without signaling.

I get it guys bad drivers make all drivers look bad. I'm just saying the cyclists that are bad riders make all of them look bad too. Let's just move on.

possible explanations:

2. MARY is a bible or otherwise historical character

3. RIP MARY :(

what don't you understand?  It's just our fictitious representation of how many times around the sun we have obtained.  your birthday just signifies that you have completed that many "years"(revolutions) and are starting your age + 1 years of life.  which is based on a fictitious way of counting our perceived time in this universe.

my point was there is no such thing as time, it is relative in our understanding of it.  we use our clock system based on oscillations of an atom, which is what we perceive but is not the governing essence of "time" in the universe.

in the context of using it in place of "use" or a synonym. I do think utilize has a somewhat distinct meaning that is of use in certain technical forms. It's abuse rate is high, people think more syllables means more smarter.

So over the weekend I ordered some seat covers for the second row of my whip since that's where the dog chills. Anyway I order them off a large auto accessory website and everything is cool. Yesterday and today I get a voice mail from them asking me to call them back for order confirmation. Wtf is this bullshit? I confirmed the order when I rough ridin' paid for it (which has already been taken out of my account), just send the motherfuckers

Sorry I don't have genius kids that can put multiple tiny candies in a tiny slot and keep them from getting sideways and then having to start over because one got sideways and you can't pull one out without pulling at at least half of them that are not sideways.

i don't think you can call an entire neighborhood a pet peeve. its more like "when Carol in shipping/receiving leaves the half and half out on the counter in the break room"
Fair. Have you noticed how bad of drivers there are in the area? Is this a real thing or do I just envision myself as an easy target with my new car?

Speaking of pet peeves. Brookside drive by KC Bier is a giant crap show after 5 PM. They double park on the sides and make it hard for traffic. There's been several complaints and a petition and still nothing. I saw a guy get hit on his bike because of it. It's going to kill someone.  :frown:

the word "American" in the title of a movie/tv show when it has clearly been put there only because the producers could not think of a title, so they just made it
"American + <word(s) that describes the genre>"

american horror story
american crime
american gangster
american psycho
american sniper
american assassin

the american part does not mean anything at all. they just want to put the other word(s) in your head so you know what genre the movie is, but you can't just call a move "gangster" so they add "american" in front of it and boom done. drives me nuts.

note: this does NOT apply to titles where "american" is necessary:

american pie
american history x
american beauty

Apparently I do this all the time when wait staff comes to check on us. I also tell them how great they are and apparently when I finish my plate real fast, I say this a lot when they ask how it was: "Just awful. Can't you tell?  ;)". Apparently being a server in the past has made me way over the top nice to the waiting staff and annoying.

Why is it that it takes women like five minutes from the time they open the car until they actually put the car in gear and start moving.  I mean, I can open the door, get in the car, put my seatbelt on, start the car and be gone in like ten seconds.  Women get in, fuckass around until your next birthday, and then decide to move.  I guess the same applies when exiting the car.  I stop, put the car in park, shut it off, get the eff out and take off.  They seem to want to wait until the engine cools before exiting the vehicle.  Could someone shed some insight on this?  @Mrs. Gooch?

I don't recall a person who identifies as female calling me "bud." I'll need to think about that some more.

Lately, I've had a couple of males (roughly the same age as me) call me "bud." Now I'm wondering "Am I the type of person who gives off a vibe that invites others to call them "bud"?" This is is really unsettling the more I think about it...

the reason why it became a known as a "podcast" is because people used to listen to the shows from their ipods, which was a rudimentary device from the early aughts used to listen to digital media.  then the portmanteau term, like so many, became entrenched in our social conscious and outlived the humble environment that spawned it.  pod.  cast.  pod + cast.  it's great and much better than its early alternatives like, "netcast" lmao

One of our client's regional managers used to send every email flagged as High importance along the word CRITICAL in the subject line.  We eventually had to tell her that if everything is CRITICAL, then nothing is CRITICAL.

Uh, you're smarter than this. I'm "staff" level, but this was just one of those ridiculous schemes for a company to spend millions to renovate the floors, add loungy areas, and think they're getting everyone (no matter the level) to not recluse and be more teamworky and inviting to convo/collaboration.

Now people try hilariously bad ways to make their spots closed in w/ the tall dry erase boards, filing cabinets, etc., though.

And I just work from home more often than not now, so it kind of did the opposite for me.

Thus, I'm quite happy about having a door when I have to be in the office.

Like 10 years ago I went to lunch with a coworker who asked that the pickle not come on her plate and it came out on the plate and she FLIPPED THE eff OUT, like on the verge of tears because pickle juice touched her sandwich. It's stuck with me, it was pretty uncomfortable.

Even if you're lucky and they didn't infect the food, just getting those disgusting things off the plate is an ordeal. First you have to get them far enough away that you can't still smell them but also if you pick them up then no amount of soap will scrub that pickle stench from your fingers

When I'm shopping somewhere and I get bombarded with questions while checking out.  No I don't want to sign up for your "rewards program".  No you don't need my email address.  No you don't need my phone number.  Let me finish this transaction so I can get the hell out of here and then berate myself for actually going into a physical store instead of shopping online.

Another pet peeve regarding vehicle sounds is whenever a police car is on screen or possibly just in the area there's a quick little siren blurt that lasts about half a second.  It's the same generic stock siren sound used on every crappy TV show.

Guys. I have one and only one pet peeve. Like, if I'm on a web browser (almost always mobile) and click something and want to then immediately click something else right after the screen starts to change, often the page content will resize or reposition just as I'm attempting the second click and cause me to click on something that I didn't wish to click on. So, then, I have to wait to go back a page from this page that I did not want at all in order to click on what I wanted when I really didn't want to have to wait on that page to fully load in the first place. I do not like it AT ALL.

I'd probably use the generic "underwear" in general for all non-boxers or boxer briefs (which is admittedly lacking clarity) but would use the aforementioned "briefs" if necessary. 

Fun fact: my dad called them "undies" when I was a kid.

Second, much worse pet peeve: my rough ridin' next door neighbor’s landscapers running the rough ridin' snowblower and shoveling their back patio area at 1:45 am last night. Standard lots here are skinny and deep, so this was approximately 25 feet from my bedroom window.

When you're at the store wanting to buy some paper towels and you just want a little twin pack but they're out of those so instead you have to buy a 16 roll jumbo sized pack and have to lug around something that's half the size of a hay bale.  Same concept applies for toilet paper too.

There's been a lot of change at my job since the new CEO came in, but I think what's driving me the most insane right now is my new grad baby squawk coworker taking advantage of our new loose "work from home" policy. He's the only person I know who owns a Jeep and lives 3 blocks away from the office and can't make it to work after an inch of snow. Now that our Manager has left for another opportunity, he barely checks in. We're going to lose this perk and I'm gonna want to choke him out.

Its like dude we're in gridlock traffic, we've moved up maybe 5 or 6 car lengths without even getting close to 30mph i don't think you need to swerve off onto the shoulder and by the way you're a huge idiot.

if you drive a truck and you have to park between 2 cars, most spots you can't turn into without having to back up to straighten out.  then backing out of those spots you run into similar situations in tight parking lots.  much easier backing in and then pulling out (that's what she said).

Anyways I can find about 75% of XYZ Company employees contact info on there. It scrapes emails along with LinkedIn etc to identify their title/email/phone etc. I looked myself up in it and they had my employment history (from LinkedIn) and my current title/phone/email (from scraping emails) correct.

So maybe they are just a big shot and don't want a sleazy sales guy getting their contact info.

zoom info has emailed several of our employees saying they had their info and letting them know they can opt out. Everyone has thought it is a phishing scheme to this point due to using the word Zoom in the name.

Buying small price items at QT, normally the cashier rings it up, you Apple Pay it, then they immediately say “Thanks see ya later, etc”

I wait a full 2 seconds, it’s not confirmed yet, I say “Thanks” and walk away.

What does this MF do... at a QT in MF OP!?

He goes, “Sir can you wait until it clears!?”

About 374 milliseconds later it clears. I have my mask on, he gets the dirtiest look I’ve ever given a human being.

If I wanted to steal under $3 of merchandise I would just grab and go. What the mother rough ridin' eff.

They used to have a wide firm base but now the dimensions are so messed up that sometimes they won't stand on their own (I'm talking about you - LIFE cereal).

Sometimes you miss an onion and you feel the crunch when you chew and then your whole mouth is filled with onion juice and it doesn't go away for an hour (#petpeeve). It definitely makes me appreciate the times I didn't miss an onion.

you don't think people at mcdonald's take pride in their work? also, do you really think a family-run chinese restaurant would rather have seven take his business elsewhere as opposed to just making some stupid fried rice without onions for him.  they are onions. it's fried rice. that family is running a business so they can pay a mortgage and car payments. will he get an eye roll? maybe, maybe not. but i guarantee they'd rather make it for him then have him go somewhere else which is what you recommended he do. we aren't talking about the french laundry or gary danko here.

I can't imagine how embarrassed I'd be telling a waiter to withhold a part of a dish without having a severe allergy.

where do you draw the line mich on omission or adding? is it just for food or other things as well?

I mean I've said toppings are a pretty good line but what do you have in mind?

Topping off fluids with an oil change should be agreed upon as part of the service or not requested.

Keeping your fluids topped off between services is important to your vehicle and to your peace of mind. Our top off policy helps provide this piece of mind. With every Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, we provide complimentary fluid top off service on vital fluids including motor oil (the same type of oil purchased originally), transmission, power steering, differential/transfer case and washer fluid. Just stop by within 3,000 miles of your service mileage and we will top off up to 2 quarts per fluid, as needed.

The option to take a little more off is a standard part of a haircut, so all good.

guacamole

this is definitely the closest but the lime juice macerates it a bit (when I make guac I soak the onion and jalaps for a few minutes before mixing in the rest but I'm sure not everyone does this)

still I think guac qualifies as a topping

plastic grocery sacks under the sink.
We never take them anywhere to recycle them and it just fills up and spills out until I get tired of it and trash them.  :angry:
