I also don't like it when people get all emotional on me.

I've seriously thought about combining face recognition software with a motorized toilet seat to automatically adjust for the entire family. Would solve one of the most common irrelevant gripes in western civilization. I'm stumped over how to have it determine when the guys actually need the seat down though. Still working....

I guess we could all go back to outhouses and sitting on rough wood planks with a hole in the center (I remember those), but would be tough to convince most folks to re-convert. Outhouses.... now THERE's something to gripe about. :D

To get back to pet peeves ( not things that we hate )

1. those little postcards that fall out of magazines
2. Dogs that bark non-stop
3. Bi-focals ( it means I'm officially old)
4. Adminstrators in general, the one's I work with in particular.
5. Incorrect drive-through orders.
6. inarticulate College students ( the ones that grunt rather than speak)
7. Stubbing my toe on something my son left out.
8. People who say " It's all good"
9. Neighbor kids who set off fireworks year around
10. Neighbors with 10 cats that kill the birds nesting in my yard. ( They did finally put bells on them)
That's about it. Nothing TOO serious.

Being a fellow brit I think that getting kicked is a right. Just wished we didn't go out on penalties tho'.

World Cup 2006 - England will win !!!

Jeez, you need to get more pet peeves, man. Toilet seats, or gum on your shoe, SOMETHING more important than sporting event outcomes. ::

No particular order but I'll number it anyway:

1.People who read over my shoulder uninvited.
2.Clutter
3.Whiners
4.Getting bumped offline on a dialup connection.
5.Critics...especially when they have no knowledge or experience of what they're criticizing.
6.Telephone calls with no real purpose while you're working or concentrating...breaking rythm or train of though.
7.Computer errors that cause you to lose what you've been working on.
8.Slow drivers.
9.Info-mercials
10.Gossip

Lots of other stuff that would go into a "soap box" category.
