i have a friend who was raised in Hong Kong and Oakland. He gripes that when he speaks English like a Chinese guy, and speaks Chinese like an American.

today's pet peeve: why is it easier to get into graduate school and get a job? a decent one anyway. screw waiting tables.

corollary pet peeve: people who don't tip, or tip a pittance. you have a space in hell reserved for you.

It depends in what part of Texas you're from. Houstonians (like I and several other STers) sound pretty regular (to me anyway) and people from Kerville sound pretty hickish!

I don't really say howdy...only sometimes! I'll record my voice just for you and say Howdy Milke.

Everyone has a unique way they speak, no matter where they're from. I am from Michigan. I have heard us Michiganders sound pretty damn hilarious. But I think we sound normal. Its all about perspective, as some of you had said.

Today's pet peeve (I like this thread, very therapeutic!)

* Running out of something just as you need it. Eg: conditioner, flour (if you're baking) etc.

Talk about frustrating!

Why do g-strings cost the same as regular panties, when they only use about 1/3 of the material, if that?

And why do people throw them on stage at certain events? I got to see Danko Jones's bassist initial kecks last night and throw them back at the girl next to me. And I'd like to emphasise next to me; not from me. Goofy.

My mum buys me peasant shirts and the like. I quite enjoy em, but my mother was the 1960's/70's feminist, and she always wore those and her cowgirl boots. You should have heard her when JC Penney's wouldn't let her use her card because HER account had been switched to my fathers name.

Speaking of which, WHY WHY WHY do women have to have their husbands permission to have a hysterectomy, whereas a man does NOT have to have his wife's permission for a vasectomy? Again, something that irritated my mother to no end and irritated me when she told me...

I think the peasant shirts are really cute, just not when *everybody* is wearing them. I hate when things go too mainstream!

I'd much rather buy them for a cheaper price at a 60s thrift shop or something. Then it'd have a story behind it.

Well, the difference is that in the first 2 cases you're directly involving people other than yourself. I think the seatbelt law should stay, though, but I can see You Know Who's point.

Actually, if you really want to get technical, seatbelt laws tend to affect many more people than just the wearer. Those who choose not to wear seatbelts greatly increase their risk of dying in the event of a traffic accident. When this happens, the local police agency has to conduct a 6-hour Fatal Traffic Accident Investigation which can involve police, fire, coroner, and towing units. The route will have to be completely shut down for several hours in order for the very thorough investigation to be completed, inconveniencing thousands of motorists who are simply attempting to get to their destinations on-time.

Additionally, lawsuits are a fact of life these days, and are especially prevalent after fatality accidents. If the victim's grieving family files a lawsuit (and they tend to do so), the local authority will be forced to defend itself in a costly trial or pay a costly settlement. These costs are recouped through local taxpayers who will see their tax rates increased, etc etc etc.

Sometimes little rules that seem to be a pain in the neck on an personal level can actually be a far greater pain in the neck for the masses when they are not followed.

What stupid thing will they be able to give you a ticket for next? running with scissors?

And im not talking about seat belt laws for children. I think all children should have to be buckeled up...they arent old enough to know the consequences, but if an ADULT can be trusted with a car, they can be trusted with that choice, end of story, nough said.

Top Three Pet Peeves:

1. Homophobia. Enough said.
2. Actually, all forms of prejudice and persecution.
3. People who smoke in public and around small children, because of the health risks.

Actually, since you mentioned it...if you're running with scissors in the direction of another person, and that person is in fear for their life, you've just committed assault with a deadly weapon, my friend. So don't be chasin' anyone with those things! heeheee

And you know, your seat belt stance is a pretty solid libertarian view. There are a lot of people who believe in that sort of individual freedom, that any person should be able to do what he or she wants to, so long as it does not hurt anyone else or step on anyone else's freedom. The entire state of New Hampshire was based on that. There is no state tax there, and it is the only state in the nation that has no seat belt law. (As a result, it forfeits millions of dollars of federal funding every year) The state motto is "Live Free or Die," which ought to tell you something. Ever considered moving?

Hey, I hadn't seen that reply! That's a really good point which I hadn't thought about. I wonder if one could find a "technical" answer in the same vein for every libertarian argument. I don't think I know enough of the workings of govermnent / order keeping to even begin to answer that. Hmmm, more reasons to have misgivings about libertarianism (is that even a word?)

Because all my other pet hates have been mentioned in this thread aready...I hate Wobble boards. Y'know the thing that Rolf Harris invented? There's a store cupboard with sheets of plastic in it in my tutor room (it's a woodwork room) and every time I'm in there, some bright spark goes picks one up and uses it as a wobble board. AARRRGGGHHH ! The noise just drives me crazy for some reason.

Oh i have one!, it just royally upset me. I was at this other website with forums, and one of the ones i went into was the topic music, and the majority of the guys there were such A**holes!!!...i was reading one of the threads and i became discusted, they talk as if theyre opinions are facts and like they know everything about everything, when clearly they dont, they just needed something to do or talk about and be bitter about, and complain. Whatever they hear, oh it must be true!!!, so lets tell everyone and start rumors, and they can go around bashing people they dont even know, and talk like they know "how things really are"...it made me absolutly sick! I wanted to give them a peace of my mind, but i dont belong to that website i dont drive the type of car its intended for. Its actually a car website, but they have other forums there like movies and music.
I hate people that are like that! I want to smack them one.

her are some trends that seriously need to die a painful death:

Spelling things wrong on purpose because it's cool.
No, it's not cool. When you try to write "Why doesn't he like me?" as "Y duZZnt h3 Lyk3 m33h", you are not cool. You just look stupid. Your English teachers probably cry themselves to sleep every night. There I said it. You repeat offenders know who you are, so clean it up!

tube tops and trucker hats folks, this is tacky as hell.

really loud engines stupid rice rockets and their 95 horsepower rumbling engines. you can hear them miles away. they're a nuisance and they probably pollute like crazy. argh!

You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being part of the problem is much more fun.

this is teeny, but it really irks me to no end when people use the abbreviations "e.g." and "i.e." interchangeably. Latin lesson du jour:

e.g. = exempli gratia = "for the sake of an example". this would correctly be used to give an example of something. "She liked many fruits and veggies, e.g. carrots and apples."

i.e. = id est = "that is". used to redefine something. "An award was given to the best person in the room, i.e. me."

sorry, but it bugs me.

And not just the local police - in a crash, someone who's not wearing a seatbelt can get hurled round the car, smashing into any other people in the car and potentially injuring or killing them.
