    Just by chance,do ya have a pet peeve??

    Even tho we reside in the greatest country on the best planet within the most desirable galaxy,every once in a great,great while we see a situation or circumstance repeated that is unnecessary,inconveniencing,disrespectful and/or just plain stupid....Now,rarely does that happen....because society today is smarter,more cultured and much more caring than ever before...
    So,that said,just on the outside chance that you may have seen or experienced something that wasn't quite 'right',this thread will provide you with an opportunity to 'share'.....
    I'll start off with a couple of examples.....

    Mr. Brightside-"There are no problems,only challenges!"-This person has obviously never faced any real adversity other than possibly a dead cell phone battery or something of similar importance,hence their conclusion of being in complete control over their destiny..... What's needed to 'realign' their logic back to reality would be ,say,taking a chemotherapy treatment, or being fitted for a prosthetic limb.

    Mr. Prius,et al,-totally committed to saving the planet and achieving 100 miles to gallon of gas in the process,he(or she) idles away for every traffic light,finally reaching a top speed well below the posted legal limit. Well done,eco-sh*tbox owner,well done......

    I'll bet if some of you search reel deep,you can think of one,too!

    my pet peeve is ,motercycle manufactures with the exception of the tw200 dont make a dual sport or trail bike with a 30in.seat height for short riders like myself .most have 36in seat height. alot of riders don't need to have16in. ground clearance to go on normal trails.they should make a lower rideheight model for people built a little lower to mother earth.

    These are good & a good topic too!
    My major pet peeves revolve around the way communication is going. It seems as though many folks are not patient enough to fully listen to a complete sentence and rather they fire off what they believe to be the ending of another persons thoughts. Or, they instead begin to say, "Yeah, yeah, yeah" to display some sort of agreeing message, only to quickly begin what they want to say.

    Another one are people who don't use their blinker - especially in the quick situation in which one may need to "cut over quickly".

    Landser, I think the same of those priuses - mostly. I did however have one pass me on a desolate two-way 65 mph highway at about 95. I followed him after that as I was curious of my new vehicles top speed and his too. I pulled off into the desert (to hike the dog) just after reaching 114 mph! This guy obviously has no regard for the environment

    *How about the apparent inability of younger generations to actually communicate verbally, or hold coherent conversation requiring more than a one or two word response.

    *Or when you send an email to someone, say a co worker or subordinate (a lot of people in my experience) and they respond to one small part of the message without the ability to read past the first sentence or thought, requiring you to keep inquiring about the un-addressed issues or give up.

    It seems the attention span has shrunk. Thanks technology.

    ha yep hellwig, I have ran into that so many times that I actually will number the different points of the message so they kinda get a hint. Must say though...my 15 year old son is very precise in answering or responding to every topic in the message

    my peeve is eating noises...drives me up the wall!! Maybe that's something that I need to work on but I can't help it

    Well, I used to call Princess "my favorite Pet Peeve" on a regular basis. I miss her. Other than that, I don't have pet peeves. Instead, I have serious problems. Get off of my lawn.

    Not a pet peeve but a sometimes irritation: PEOPLE WHO BLAST OFF HALF COCKED

    I'll buy into the no problems only challenges. Annnddd, yes, I did two years of chemotherapy. Without boring you of the details, through my study of a MD text book insisted on a review of my slides by Stanford Medical School, wound up in a successful clinical trials, and am here 17 year later from a previously incurable cancer, YES, I faced it as a challenge. I slammed GOD-DAMNIT! out before I could think but yes, I accepted it as a challenge. One that I met head on. I could have lost but facing it as a challenge I continue to believe played big part in my being here to hassle ya.

    I went off half cocked, looked on the bright side, and won. I continue to do that to this day. And hopefully tomorrow.

    Soooo, to sum up, my pet peeve would be a recommendation to NOT look on the bright side.

    Thank you.

    Amen
    Ya gotta finish the loop, it's your only way out!
