1. 1. Roll backs
This just says to me “ Look, I am still making loads of money, but I’m trying to make you feel good about the over pricing that I have been charging you”. It’s the same thing with 3 cents a litre off gas prices. I really don’t want to belong to your silly club anyway. Just take the 3 cents off at the pump.
2. 2. TV sequences that are to be continued.
In In most cases they don’t say when they will be continued. Tomorrow? At what time? Next week? Or never?
3. 3. Distracted drivers
I am getting tired of near misses by people talking on cell phones, primping in the mirror or in one case reading a book on the freeway. There is hope for this one as the province is implementing a distracted driving law. I guess there is a sequel to this one because I also dislike over regulation. In this case a hefty ticket may boost the common sense level.
4. 4. People who are consistently late.
Sure, everybody is late now and again for a good reason, but showing up consistently ½ hour late for a meeting, church or whatever, doesn't say to me “ Look how important I am”, but rather “See how disorganised I am”
5. 5. The word “Like”
It seem s that almost every person under 20 (in some cases, 30) has to use this word at the start of every sentence, and several times within the sentence. I almost feel sorry for them when they hit the work force and find out that their potential boss considers them illiterate!
What are some of your peeves? I hate to think that I am all alone out here.
