    small rural hospital.....to most here their books would prolly look ripe for the picking with several million in the bank but if you also look at what it costs to run a hospital for a month and knew for a fact the clinic end of the hospital was actually $200,000 in the red last month, well than things dont look so good.......since they are a rural health provider and receive county tax money i get to look over their books just like i get to look over the counties, the states, the schools ect..........why would i be interested in taking them to court if they do their part to help me take out the doc that was the actual cause of the problem? so long as the doc that damn near killed my wife never sets foot in this town again and has to defend his actions to the state licensing committee im happy.....what will happen if i sue them is make it harder for me to receive adequate health care locally....
    Reason number 120978 why I'm peeved off by people who sue like there's no tomorrow. My prodding before was, of course, all in jest.

    I hate it when people serve me food. Not that I don't like that, it's convienent and nice, but, I have mild OCD when it comes to dishes, and I personally inspect all dishes for smudges, dirt, food, water marks, etc. before using them. If they have a little bit, I vigorously scrub it with soap. If it's clean, I simply get it wet before using it. If it's too dirty, I put it back. I ALWAYS get cups, forks, spoons, plates, bowls, and every item that I eat or drink out of rinsed with water briefly before I use it. This weird habit is part of the reason my hands are very smooth.

    Here's a peeve that gets me; but I don't know what to call it..............

    It's when someone speaks to you as if you already knew everyone that they mention simply by first name!

    You ever encounter people like that?? They mention family members, co-workers, friends etc. that you do not know (never seen, never met) and only by their first name without a hint of relation on how they relate to their current story. AND, these people speak in that manner all the time!

    Very confusing people to try to communicate with most of the time. They seem to be SO into their own little life that they just assume that YOU are really into their life as well! You have to continually stop their story to ask, "Now who are Mike & Jan?" "Oh they're a young couple in your book club that just joined and are sooooo nice. Okay, continue..." "Hold it, now who is Sue?" "Oh your teacher's assistant that helps you grade papers on Tuesdays and Thursdays, K, got it. Go on..."

    Uugghh. FRUSTRATING!

    It may be a mental disorder of the afflicted person, I don't know, it just really bothers me. Isn't a common courtesy to describe people in your story??

    When you get some random little scratch. I got one today, but I have no idea how I got it. It annoys me so much, they just come out of nowhere.

    lol, that isn't as bad as having a gash on your leg that stains your sock that you don't notice until that night after it clots. But, yes I HATE not knowing how you got hurt, especially when someone points it out to you and looks at you weird for not feeling it.

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

    Example...my brother is not feeling well and is trying to tell me he ate some bad salami. It took him nearly 40 minutes to actually get to the point that he ate some bad salami. I first had to hear about all the different brands of lunch meat on the market, and a mouthfull of other non-relevant rubbish before he actually could get to the point.

    When I tell him "Steve...my head is swimming" he cuts to the chase...but not before you've agonized over his story.

    Ohhhh boy. I've got a friend who does that. And there's almost never a distinct point. He can tell you about a movie he liked and he just rambles on so long that it's like you saw the darn thing yourself, but without any of the interesting parts.

    The best is when they forget that they told you the story so they go for round 2 (or 3 or 4...)
