Pet peeves

I really hate it when the toilet paper runs out and the last person to have used it is too lazy to replace it with a new one.

Re: Pet peeves

I love this idea and I have plenty of them. I have to go to a public policy class and once I leave there I'll have more.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I hate it when there are no more rolls left in the bathroom! And you have to scream for help! Or you have to umm... drip dry. Ew.

Too much info, no?

Re: Pet peeves

1. That avatars take forever to load
2. Old people in big american cars who drive in the passing lane @25mph and break every 2 feet.
3. When people eat out of my plate
4. When a group of people walk (slowly, most of the time, engrossed in conversation) side by side and take up the entire sidewalk

Bjorkman Girl, it could be worse...a friend of mine had to go in a portapotty w/o tp, she left without her underwear

Re: Pet peeves

# When you are stuck in a shopping centre and are going up an escalator and the person in front of you gets to the stop and just stops dead and looks around and you bump into them.
# Also walking down the street and you are about to pass someone and this person walks quicker and in the direction you are going to pass.
# The phrase "Now, let me tell you something".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

UGH. I know. These people are every bit as obnoxious as people who make ap oint of having conversations in stairwells and doorway. Seriously people, it's called common sense.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Pet peeves

When there´s no more toilet paper left at home you can also use old newspapers to wipe your ass.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Re: Pet peeves

# Another one which irritates me and shows how much of a guy I am. The whole hipsters thing irritates me in a big way. It's funny as sometimes the job I do sometimes requires me to move around the venue quite a bit. I see women holding up their pants when they are walking up the stairs, wouldn't it be easier to wear something that doesn't require it.

# Women pulling down their mini-skirts is another peeve and leaves me shaking my head.

Re: Pet peeves

-Women in those big 4 wheel drives, (even my mum says they shouldnt be on the road, they cannot handle the big cars).
- 60+ Drivers, get them off the damn road. They cannot drive
- People who walk around in lines (instead of single file) blocking off the pavement, come on people you can be separated by 1 foot from your friends once in your life.
