I have to go apologize to my 15 year old daughter. I thought her texting was bad, but this is awful!

Yes, this was a 30ish year old adult. And we thought the same about how attention to detail in an email could reflect attention to detail in a yard project, and felt pretty comfortable not going with this company.

Another pet peeve from that whole experience is misspelling someone's name when it's part of their email address. I realize my first name could be spelled several ways, but when it's written right in front of you, at least copy it correctly.

Also, maniac grocery cart drivers who come out of an aisle full speed and ram someone (or their cart), or stop on a dime in the middle of an aisle and block both directions, are irritating.

    I find this to be especially true with tourists.

This used to annoy me as well, until I moved to Germany. In my experience, revolving doors are very common here and they are much larger than those in America. It's not uncommon to see a family of five able to fit in the same section of revolving door without any issue. Not just Germany either; they are as large and widely-used in the handful of mainland countries we have visited.

    And the people who let them in.

I see this daily and it drives me insane. Since we're so close to an Air Force base, one would assume that it's the American drivers fucking up. But one would be wrong. For all of their arrogance about driving precision and the AUTOBAHN (give me a break, it's a fucking highway that happens to not have speed limits in some places), I see more German drivers pulling this shifty move than Americans. And the passive idiot who lets them in is just as bad. I also agree with the driving-related peeves of The Guinness. Basically, all of my severe pet peeves are driving related. I used to think I was becoming that guy, but I can still recognize and appreciate quality driving when I see it. I just don't see it enough.

Edited to add that it annoys me when automatic doors open slowly and/or open late. I don't remember selling my soul to Milhouse.

    I have no problem with large revolving doors. The Toys R Us in Manhattan has huge ones that can fit ten people (if they move). My problem is the standard one person revolving door. And when I say tourists, I also mean domestic ones who come to NYC.

People--including those I live with--who don't wash their hands after using the restroom; they can take a long walk on a short pier.

Well, it'd be nice if we (Penn State) had a better record than 2-9 versus Michigan in the last 11 meetings before we call this a rivalry. For me, even if we probably won't play again 'til Joe is no longer head coach, Pitt is *the* rival.
