When people write "sence" instead of sense, or misuse your, you're, there, their and they're.

My biggest pet peeve I dealt with when I ran a Minecraft server: "Hey Kuw, Can I ask you a question?" YOU JUST DID. Or "Are you there I need to tell you something." PLEASE just get to the point.

1. People who stand right at the edge of a curb, but aren't actively planning to cross. Double points if they're staring at their cell phone whilst doing this. Look. If you're not crossing the street, stand a few feet away from the curb, so that every single car doesn't have to slow down when driving by on the off chance that you might randomly step out in front of them at any given moment.

2. People who stop to have conversations in the location that most blocks other people trying to walk by. You want to stop and have a conversation, then step to the side and do it. It's not like you're going anywhere anyway, so why not be a tiny bit aware of others around you?

3. People who park their shopping cart blocking one side of the aisle, while standing next to it and rummaging through stuff on the shelf on the other side of the aisle, effectively blocking the entire aisle. Then being oblivious to all the folks trying to get by. Oh. Double points if this is combined with number 2 above, and it's two people stopping to chat while each blocking different halves of the aisle with their respective carts.

4. Honestly, just about any use of a cell phone that doesn't involve sitting in a stationary location. It's somewhat hysterical watching someone walking down a hallway that's like 15 feet wide, weaving from side to side like a drunk driver down the interstate, head down, engrossed in whatever super important stuff is on his screen.

I made a similar post years ago, but I don't remember what I wrote...

1. People who don't use their turning signals, causing me to wait, only to find out that I could have gone.

2. People who reference "reverse racism" as opposed to simply racism. The reverse of racism would be something along the lines of equality, fairness and acceptance.

3 People who aren't necessarily the smartest people who make posts on Facebook as if they were more intelligent and/or insightful than what they really are.

Allegory is also a pet peeve of mine. I prefer meanings to be out in the open.

And while I'm at it, I have an undying hatred in particular for teachers who force you to write papers 10x as long as the poem you're supposed to be writing about. 5 pages about "The Red Wheelbarrow"? Fuck you and your stupid bald head.

I forgot to mention the biggest pet peeve of all:

Being lied to. --and intentional mistruth in general.

Even if it is something small and seemingly innocent.

On a somewhat related note, there is also flagrant and unabashed ignorance and stupidity. I just had to have a very long conversation with a member of my family over a conspiracy theory she reposted on Facebook claiming the most recent shooting in Orlando was staged for the purpose of enacting restrictive gun laws.

One pet peeve/question that I have.

Is there a rule on waiters not collecting your credit card immediately after handing you your bill. I can not for the life of me get a waiter to pick up my credit card as they hand me my bill. They will walk off and return to pick it up later.

Sure wasn't when I was one. The quicker you paid, the quicker i got you out and someone new in that seat, so I could make more money.

Because most people aren't sitting there waiting with their credit card in hand when the waiter happens to come by with the bill. I suspect that in most cases, it's a matter of being as polite to the guest as possible and not appearing to rush them. Most people want to go over the bill and make sure everything is in order before handing over their card. For the waiter, it just makes more sense to drop the bill off, then go off to deal with other tables for a few minutes, then come back.

I can't speak to them actually refusing to take the card if you're handing it to them right at that moment, but is that really what's happening? Are you sitting there waiting, card in hand, to hand it to the waiter when he/she walks up with the bill? Or does the bill arrive, and you respond by asking the waiter to stand by the table while you dig out your card? Cause I could totally see them not wanting to do that. For a number of reasons.

I have the card in hand, in their face, with me saying "here you go" and they walk off. Every single time. That makes no sense.

Dunno man. Maybe it's just you? Smiley: tongue

Do they just ignore you, or say something like "take your time, I'll be back shortly"? It may just be a policy thing maybe? I've never worked as a waiter, so I'm probably the worst person to even speculate on this (hah, like that'll stop me!), but if I were to speculate, I'd think that maybe they have a cycle of tables they're going through, and breaking it to deal with actually taking the card on the "hand out the bill" cycle can mess up their timing, resulting in increased chance of mistakes (like handing the wrong card back to the wrong table, which is totally a thing that happens sometimes). Or maybe it's a CYA thing and their management tells them to always give the customers X amount of time with the bill before taking their payment so that the customer can't claim they were rushed later if they disagree with the bill, or some other problem comes up.

Or maybe it's aliens.

It appears to be a policy thing. It's why I ask. They just drop off the bill and keep moving and pretend as if they don't see me trying to hand them the credit card. Next time, I will ask a question in order to stall time and hand the bill while talking to them.

Hey. It's your peeve. Personally, in the grand scheme of time involved in eating out, the couple minutes between when the bill gets handed to me, and when the waiter comes back to pick it up is pretty irrelevant to me. I guess if it really bothers you, maybe you should ask the waiter if that's a policy, and why it is. I've never noticed this either way, but then I've never actually attempted to hand the waiter my card right at the moment I'm handed the bill. You seriously don't want to even look at the bill first before paying?

Been playing League of Legends lately. I'd say it's a pretty huge peeve doing any PvP match without fail that I am always paired with some complete idiot who dives into a fight he can't possibly win, dies, then proceeds to blame me, ******** and moaning throughout the entire game, because I could not somehow save his stupid feeding *** while he then proceeds to do it again and again. Every. Time. Someone completely different. Every. *******. Time.

Speaking of, I'm pretty terrible at Rocket League but me and a couple friends (on PC) were playing public games last night cross-platform against PS4 players and I swear, PS4 players must be the Washington Generals of Rocket League. Out of eleven games, at least six were 6-0 shutouts or worse and we didn't lose a single game.

It's not like an FPS where you have the whole M+KB vs Controller debates (I think my friends use controllers, I use M+KB) so I wonder if there's some other technical reason why they kept losing besides "lol console players sux".

I'm beginning to realize why League of Legends has such a bad reputation. It's like: Combine everything that has been said about what applies to all team games, etc-- and add heavy amounts of what has become known as "victim culture."

At the end of every game, there is a button next to each players name where you can report them. On the report form, the reasons you can select are practically anything you can imagine. In game, people whine in /all chat (both teams can see) constantly. They will plead to both teams to report x person for everything and anything at all. They will always refer to you by your character's name, in my case either Jinx or Miss Fortune (or "MF" which is another peeve because to me MF just means "mother fucker.")

If you stop moving for two seconds to scratch your ***, it's "report MF for afk." If you don't play the character they don't want you to play it's "report MF for auto locking." Just all kinds of really petty and stupid things and it's like they just can't wait to find some reason to cry to both teams to report someone in hopes one of the poor souls who's job it is to monitor these things might give a **** (they don't.)

What results from this is a lot of retaliation back and forth while other players on both teams jump in and take sides and argue and ***** the entire game about how much x player sucks more than y while others just stop playing altogether just to stand in the spawn areas and cry about their hurt feelings-- all of which results in more REPORT THEM I GOT A SCREENSHOT-s.

It just seems like all of this could be avoidable if only the game's developers themselves weren't complete idiots. I mean, just get rid of the "report" button and 90% of this goes away. Maybe come up with a way for players to pick the characters and positions they want to play before they enter the queue to find a group so they aren't fighting over it before and during every game.
