My newest pet peeve


Well, a bit different spin I suppose, but I still haven't figured out "karma" which I don't happen to recall seeing here, but on other forums, and what's up with zombies lately? Zombie threads, posts, and although I tend to try to avoid television as much as possible, zombie commercials. Maybe something to do with the fact that the world is going to end next month?

Actually the world as I know it came to an end on election day 2008...and again on Nov 6, 2012....... And my investment broker isn't handing out any calendars either.

"Whiskey Tango Foxtrot"?!?
What The Heck!?!

"Whiskey"? - No thanks I'm off that stuff! (Thanks anyway!)
"Tango"? - Naw - I'm doing the Lambada!
"Foxtrot"? - Nope- it's either the "Twist" or, the "Electric Fly"

Oh - you haven't heard of the "Electric Fly"??? -
It's simple and easy to learn -
Just run into a live circuit - 30, 40, 60, 100 amps - that you thought was
dead!
You'll be dancing and, flying!!

(Stick with the "Tango" or "Foxtrot"!!)

1) People who get upset when you drive according to the law. Example: People who feel a need to direct traffic while they are out walking.
2) Food service workers not practicing good hygeine. Example: Food service worker handling food, then taking off gloves and handling money. Followed by putting the same gloves back on they just had laying randomly on a counter somewhere.
3) OCD People
4) OCD People
5) Getting interrupted
6) OCD People
G) Inconsistent bulleting
8) People sending food back at an inexpensive place because it isnt perfect.

Because they don't know any better -----> their school teachers didn't want to damage their self-esteem by telling them that they spelled something wrong.

I'm half-way kidding, but there is some truth to that. Not all teachers, of course.
