    You are so right and I have an important thing to add. It's like back when I was 15, I was in high school and ... it was a Sunday, or was it Thursday, well ... we all agreed the peas were too salty ... you just never know how to handle it when a teacher says that ... so my boss says to me ... it sure was hot that summer, so we ... my third year of college was the best ... I don't know what the dog was thinking ... now, where was I? Oh yes, you're so right about that.

    The best is when they forget that they told you the story so they go for round 2 (or 3 or 4...)
    My dad is way worse, he goes into so much detail he tells you what kind of pen he is using even though it has NOTHING to do with the story, by the time he gets to the "good" part, you can't connect any of the relevant info because he made such a big deal over irrelevant stuff. He talks so much, he is WAY worse then a little kid.

    Most of my peeves are communication oriented, either spoken or printed

    1) The growing frequency of people using "loose" instead of "lose". I've seen this error in ads lately. If you lose something it's lost. If you loose something then you have let it go or released it.

    2) Bad spelling. Spelling checkers are now incorporate or can be added to most browsers. Why can't people use them? They aren't that difficult to figure out. Even I've got them figured out.

    3) Speaking of spelling checkers, I get irritated when they give you a list of 7+ words to select from and none of them are the right one. (I know I shouldn't be so darn lazy when it comes to replacing the one letter I mistyped...)

    4) Lack of correct punctuation. Is it that difficult to put commas in contracted words? ie. cant is can't, dont is don't.

    5) Whining, so I'll quit now.

    People who say 'libary' instead of 'library'. That most definitely is up there. Also, adults who speak in slang...like using the word 'late' in place of goodbye or see you later. The worst offender of this has got to be celebrity chef Guy Fieri who talks like he's still 15.

    People who don't listen.

    Yes, I said I don't want to... no, really. No its not about that, it is that I am not interested at all... no, that wont make me change my mind. Drop it. I mean it, drop it!

    Why wont they shut up? Why do I have to repeat myself 10 times and STILL end up not getting the message across with some people?
    that makes no logic

    I hate when someone has something important to say but can't say it unless they give you their friggin life story first.

    i take claims in insurances and i simply asked : you left where to go where, and they tell me their whole nights events! did you leave home to go to work?...it's that simple! i don't want to know what they ate for breakfast.

    Or the young guys who modified their cars to the point that it's rediculous, they buy a 2000$ car, spend 20 000$ on it (but don't tell their insurance copany of the modifications so their rates don't go up...), get into a smash, and expect to have their car exactly like it was before the accident. face value is face value if you don't tell yopur insurace company of any modifications...sorry!

    i think 3 ! marks is the max allowable, after that it's just overkill !!!

    we shouldn't judge people on how they talk or if they use slang. freedom of speech everyone!

    prolly is just easier to type in a long text, and so long as the people you are talking to understand what you're saying

    what the heck is melk? where do you come from to pronounce milk as melk...odd. is that like shard and sherd, jk
