I feel that pain!!

It peeves me that I can grow hair anywhere on my body with consummate ease but have a rapidly developing patch on me head that's given up!

I dont have many.
However, my biggest peeve is the dumb lazy fools who dont put their cart in the little cart holder when they are done--just leave it out there in the parking lot. Grrr

Oooh, and the people who keep telling me how to get pregnant and want to discuss why I havent gotten KU yet (Got married in June- it is a hot topic now...).--that one was for the ladies :)

Holy crap. I can't stand that. Half the supermarket parking lot is unusable spaces because someone just left their cart there. Even worse are the people who let their carts roll into my car. :ranting2:

People who talk on the phone at a checkout or cashiers line.
The person who occasionally takes the space I usually park in at my apartment.
Slurping the milk off a spoon when eating cereal.
The sound of aluminum cans opening.

One of my biggest peeves is winter snow covered parking lots. Do you really have to leave a four to six foot gap between cars? This reduces the totally parking capacity by sometimes 25 to 50%. I don't care about parking close, just the ability to get into a parking lot and find a space.

My wife has had to deal with the KU thing for years. We have one daughter and will never be able to have more. People that don't know ask why we don't have more far too often, when they're missing a good opportunity to STFU.

When someone says to me, "I would go to your gym, but I need to get in shape first!" Blows my mind! It's like saying, "I would go to the doctor, but I need to heal first!" It makes absolutely no sense???!!!

People who ask me a question and then interrupt me (or worse, start talking to someone else) when I'm in the middle of answering it. If you don't want to listen to my answer, then don't ask the question.

People who look at a photo I've taken and say "you must have a nice camera!" That's like complimenting someone on their cooking skills by saying "you must have nice pots and pans!"

In general, people who want to be hand held. I enjoy helping people, and there are many occasions where I ask for help myself. But put some effort behind your request for help, make an attempt to understand the problem and ask an intelligent question. Otherwise I'll be forced to send you to http://www.lmgtfy.com/ (WFS) .

-True story: One time someone asked me a stupid question, so I sent them to lmgtfy.com (WFS), and then they asked me how I made that. So I then I had to actually send them to http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=lmgtfy.com (WFS) .

A Nikon D7000 typically takes a much better looking picture than a kodak disposable. A good teflon nonstick pan typically does a better job of cooking an omelet than some other pans.
