People with hands free cell phones, walking down the grocery store isle talking to themselves.

When people first started using those things I was always so shocked to see how many people were "talking" to themselves...

I love Bluetooth. Now I can continue to talk with myself and people will think I'm having a conversation with someone else! Little do they know I'm so crazy!

That's an interesting point... Wonder how many do that to appear "busy," "in demand," and "cool" ...

I only talk to myself in the car - it's the only place I have Bluetooth.

Oh I have several pet peeves I'll share:

1) People who are apparently refinancing their house in the drive up ATM line at the bank. For gods sake folks....these are supposed to be "quick in, quick out" devices for those who need a few bucks from their account. I swear some folks are there for 10 or 15 minutes doing some complicated transaction. Or those who you can see through the rear window of their car counting the money to make sure they were not shorted. Ok....logic here. If you do come up short....what exactly are you going to do ? Sit there and screem for someone in the bank to come out and give you more money ? No, you're going to drive to your bank, go inside and complain to a live person. So WTF are you doing refusing to pull ahead and count your money ! My god....think !

2) The mystery braker. You can be on the freeway, clear day, no rain, no heavy traffic, everybody moving along nicely at 70 mph....and all of a sudden the guy 20 car lengths from anybody else brakes for a second or two. WTF....do you just want to make sure your brakes work ? I've seen this happen to many times you really gotta wonder about some folks.

My pet peeve of the day? Trolls and those who respond to them.

Mine too. I responded to one before I realized what was going on, then deleted my post when I figured it out. I hope they go away and don't come back. So there!

(although, most of the trolls were just responding to each other - they need to get a life in a big way)

I must have slept wrong last night. Headache and a knot in my neck.

Well, stupid me, I went and took a cash advance from my bank today, to get through till next payday. Thats a peeve in itself! Thankfully though, they only charge a minimal fee for doing that. Once my full time hours come back, I can rest a little easier though.
