Pet Peeves

 

As  drove into town the other day I encountered one of my classic pet peeves. Every day to and from Bangor there are 3 separate passing zones. And it seems like at least once a day I encounter a slow driver who immediately guns it when they come to the passing zone. It’s like they’ve suddenly discovered where the gas pedal is located. Since they’re probably going to go slow when the passing zone is over there’s really no choice but to pass them at highway speeds. Madness.

It got me thinking about pet peeves. I’ve got a million of them and, for the most part, just let them go and move on with life. If I lost my shit every time someone chewed with their mouth open or didn’t look behind them as they went through a door I’d never get anything done. For your entertainment and possible chagrin, I submit some common pet peeves

There has to be many more, this is just scratching the surface. It’s fun to rage but let’s face it, people are stupid  and self centered and only a small minority are deliberately evil (they also just happen to be Dems running for the presidency in 2020). Save your true rage for those who truly cross the line, not the everyday morons who are just going about their lives.

  1. My pet peeve of late is non-aggressive drivers. You get behind one at a stop sign and they won’t pull out until they can’t see a car in either direction having passed on two dozen opportunities that were totally safe due to a car being visible on the horizon.

  2. Share this.

  3. Just saw another one of my pp’s while driving to work. There are a shitton of cars done over as cabs, way more than is needed for this place based on population. I’m paying for most of their fares with my taxes to shuttle people to and fro the methadone clinic and other assorted medical appointments.

  4. My fear about the seemingly inevitable schism over whoever’s the real pope is that I’ll eventually be left with a choice between a church with married gay priests and priestesses and another church where they shun you for wanting to take communion in the hand or refuse chapel entry to your wife if she isn’t veiled.

  5. Just ditch it all Leon. There’s no harm. I promise.

  6. The whole “sex strike” thing over abortion got me thinking about an ad, aimed at men.

    “Imagine your son. The chip off of your ol’ block. The boy you play catch with, the young man you taught to drive. The boy who carries your name and who has made you proud.

    Now imagine the woman who would murder him before he draws his first breath.

    Don’t have sex with this woman, ever.”

  7. Just ditch it all Leon. There’s no harm. I promise.

    I’m probably damned either way, but church gets me out of the house on Sundays.

  8. Does your church have coffee and danishes after mass? Think about the caffeine and carbs

  9. One of my pet peeves is fidgety people with clicky pens. I have ballpoint pens for Mr. RFH and any clicky pens in the house get hidden.

    Getting my carpets cleaned today (not a euphemism).

  10. Derp. The clicky pens are ballpoints, too. You know what I mean.

    **checks coffee to make sure it’s not decaf**

  11. Does your church have coffee and danishes after mass? Think about the caffeine and carbs

    One Sunday a month. I’ve never gone.

  12. I’m probably damned either way, but church gets me out of the house on Sundays.

    Go hiking.

  13. My pet peeves are bad table manners and humans in general. But mostly bad table manners.

  14. You do know Michigan is flat, right? Like, flat flat.

  15. Should be an easy hike, then.

  16. THAT’S A WALK!

  17. Leon’s so short everything is uphill.

  18. When I want a hike I climb your mom.

    My pet peeves are bad table manners and humans in general. But mostly bad table manners.

    ——–

    Mine is humans who have decided there is no level of social norm they are willing to work toward.

    Example:

    Wear pajama bottoms to the store or on a plane? Sure!

  20. Leon’s so short everything is uphill.

    Oso and Car in might want to take note. And MJ.

  21. but mare, they have those cute cartoon characters on them!

  22. Butt boils.

  23. When I want a hike I climb your mom.

    LOL

  24. I used to be a leg-bobber-type fidgeter. From childhood and then for years and years. Don’t think I still do it anymore.

    A pet peeve of mine is being on the phone with someone who is chewing something. The sound of them chewing into my ear…ugh. KILL.

    So annoying. That reminds me, seems like every time I call your mom, she has something in her mouth.

  25. Liberal cousin has geared up again and bugging her Faceplant friends to donate to Planned Parenthood. 1,200+ friends. 24 hours. $40. It was $25 the last time she did this.

    Compare to the local crisis pregnancy center, fundraiser dinner with Abby Johnson as speaker, 700 attendees. Nearly $280K.

  26. I can dig it, Leon. I’ve been mulling a defection to the Anglicans–the remnant that actually still believes, not the SJW-ridden husk–for a number of years.

  27. May I invite you to https://www.lcmc.net/

    Home church in Elk Horn went through all this crap years ago. they have split with the main Lutheran church, and this is the result. Many are very happy with what is represented now.

  28. My cousin is a pastor there.

  29. SURPRISE: Judge seals all records in STEM shooting case

    There’s a minor involved, so I’m half not surprised. but everything sealed? Here’s my shocked face:

  30. I wouldn’t have a problem wearing a scarf to chapel if that meant clergy actually following/enforcing doctrine after purging the lefty loosie goosie garbage and diddlers of boys/young men.

  31. Wait Jay, I thought they were trying both of them as adults. If that is the case, why seal the records because minor? Has to be another reason.

  32. Duh…just looked at your linky. Would she give the same deal if say…it was a mosque or school full of black children…?

  33. Sorry Jay, I’m not a protestant, and hold Luther himself in a not-small amount contempt. That said, most “rad trads” are basically pharisees to my eyes. If the schism leaves me with the two aforementioned options, I’m stuck with the veilers and Ad Orientum crowd even if they are nutbags about touching the Eucharist.

  34. I went to my nephews confirmation into the Luthern church. They had more touching of each other than the Catholics have. Wth? Initially I sat in back because ‘touching’. Fewer hands to touch in back. Then we moved to the pew behind my sister. We had to shake hands TWICE! And then they wanted us to go down the line of confirmants after the service and shake all of their hands and welcome them.
    I don’t think so.

    Maybe I should look for a Korean church. They nod – no touch.

    Not sure what I’d do if I had to take the host on the tongue – SHUT IT, YOUR WHORE MOUTHS.

  35. The Missouri senate passed a ban on abortions after 8 weeks, this morning.

  36. Ima start a church where we kick one another in the poon.

  37. Can’t you just deal directly with Christ? Why do you need all these other people and buildings and stuff.

  38. So, you’re a Baptist, Hotspur?

  39. Just kidding, no offense to any Baptists, that was a clunker.

  40. don’t worry beasn, they don’t jam the host into your craw.

  41. Tried it, laura. Not happy with the results, esp. lack of fellowship. It’s why I’m trying (with limited success) to get myself going back to some church. Gets kinda hard when it’s a bunch of strangers, who you’re not sure if they believe the religion you were raised to believe in, with a leader that seems to have chosen Marx as his savior.

    I hate this world. So. Fucking. Much.

  42. Man, I really love this world.

    There’s a lot wrong with it but it’s a pretty awesome place.

    All you gotta do to remind yourself of it, is open a can of Fresca.

  43. It’s crazy. Sometimes I do love it. Sometimes I wouldn’t mind SMOD finally ending it all. Drives me crazier than I already am.

  44. Can’t you just deal directly with Christ? Why do you need all these other people and buildings and stuff.

    Because the only way to come to know him is through the other people and the buildings and stuff. He’s been away for a while, you see, and knew that he would be, so he told those he knew best to tell everyone they could about him and to build a church in his name. The successors of those same men eventually put together a set of writings they considered inspired, but those writings are encompassed by a wider set of teachings and traditions, rather than the writings themselves being the full descriptor of faith.

  45. https://nypost.com/2019/05/16/transgender-woman-gets-new-vagina-made-from-fish-skin/

    The jokes write themselves…

  46. So dude cut his pecker off and had someone stitch him a wound-pocket from fishleather?

    I’m curious how much of the cost of that was out of pocket, because getting mutilated when you’re that crazy should be free.

  47. Hey Alex, how’s your Russian these days?

    You should try for a job at the consulate in Miami.

  48. he told those he knew best to tell everyone they could about him and to build a church in his name

    sounds pretty sketchy, man

  49. I get that, but there’s like, a ton of supporting documentation. F’realz.

  50. Plus most of those guys died broke at the hands of the state or other authorities for the sake of talking about it, so it’s not like they were in it for cash and prizes.

  51. Моя русская хорошо.

  52. I wouldn’t have a problem wearing a scarf to chapel if that meant clergy actually following/enforcing doctrine after purging the lefty loosie goosie garbage and diddlers of boys/young men.

    Me, too.

  53. The men should all have to wear assless chaps to mass.

    I mean, they’re picturing it anyway.

  54. From Facedouche:
    “I was in the coffee shop recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart. The place was packed, but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me. I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my Ipod (with ear piece) – and how was your day?”

  55. The men should all have to wear assless chaps to mass.

    I mean, they’re picturing it anyway.

    MJ is projecting again.

  56. I am not opposed to fighting for my personal Catholic faith.
    Meaning, when I’m in church and I hear bullshit (which I do a lot from some dumbass priest or deacon) I remind myself why I’m there (Eucharist, tradition, ritual), who I’m there for (me and my need for God and to be with others to worship together…I’m a loner too much), what my faith has done for me (ponder big issues, life commandments, family values, insight to the readings) and (if applicable) how this building has inspired or “lifted” my faith and spirit. Some churches do, some don’t.*

    *Most churches built in the 60’s are cheap garbage.

    Also, I don’t know what the eff I’m saying.

  57. MJ is projecting again.

    ———

    Leon nailed it. (so to speak)

  58. We had a really old priest on Mother’s Day and he spent his whole sermon going on and on about how Mothers are great, women have been abused, single moms are special blah blah blah and then at the end of his sermon he said, “Happy Father’s Day.”

    My daughter and I couldn’t look at each other for fear of busting out laughing.

    The priest was a quintessential Irish (with a brogue) liberal, democrat.

  59. HA! Pepe!

  60. People who spit gum out on a sidewalk should be killed.

    Not hyperbole.

    hahahahaha, I make myself laugh.

  61. People who spit in public should also be killed.

  62. Maybe I should say, “Banned from society.”

    No, killed is correct.

  63. *spits and farts in Mare’s general direction.

  64. Goes Jihadi on PD’s ass. (And not the goat loving kind, the take my Ford F-150 and runs him over kind.)

  65. https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

  66. H2 dog

    NO NO NO, UMMMMM, WEEEEEEEE

    AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN

  67. Oh, is the pet peeve spitting? I thought it was because it’s Travis Tritt.

  68. There should be some secret Mass code:

    Priest says:

    Homeless – everyone yawns and looks at their watches
    Climate change – everyone farts

  69. I’m waiting for the homily focused on the duty of an immigrant to assimilate and follow the laws of their host nation.

  70. Refugees/illegal immigrants – everyone hold up the bulletin like they are reading it. (No one actually reads the bulletin.)

  71. I’m waiting for the homily focused on the duty of an immigrant to assimilate and follow the laws of their host nation.

    Christ will return on the Last Day before you will see that happen.

  72. No one actually reads the bulletin.

    Is that why the dickhead priests always read the announcements while everyone is fidgeting to get the recessional hymn overwith so they can go about their day?

    I always think to myself, “Jesus, dickface, tell everyone to get a bulletin and read the goddamn thing.”

  73. Douchebags!

  74. You know Jesus was an illegal immigrant refugee.

    *sips Venti latte, 2 shots of espresso, vanilla powder, coconut milk, with extra dumbfuck

  75. Please turn your hymnals to hymn 175, “Jesus was Illegal, and Joseph was a Tranny”…

  76. You know Jesus was an illegal immigrant refugee.

    *sips Venti latte, 2 shots of espresso, vanilla powder, coconut milk, with extra dumbfuck

    ———-

    LOL

    MJ is a jackass but he’s a funny jackass.

  77. Sing along with the bass section of the TransWomen’s choir!

  78. We had a priest at the downtown St Pete cathedral say that Joseph and Mary were refugees. hahahahahahah, Ah, no, on the road for the census, dumbass.

    I haven’t been back since.

  79. Refugee = people returning to the place of their family

    Duh

  80. Oh, I stand corrected.

  81. In my priest’s defense, the parish secretary is renowned for screwing up bulletin notices. “Not” for “now”, wrong dates, wrong times, etc.

  82. Gonna use that, MJ. “Did you get extra dumbfuck in your coffee this morning?”

  83. Ha!

    I see Starbucks had a special on extra dumbfuck today!

  84. My carpets are clean, and I now know the life story of the cleaning guy.

  85. not a euphemism

  86. Priest says:

    ‘Social Justice’

    Everyone roll their eyes, look over at their spouse, and punch them for having nodded off. (speaking from experience)

  87. —I always think to myself, “Jesus, dickface, tell everyone to get a bulletin and read the goddamn thing.”—

    Hotspur should enroll in a seminary. Mostly because I’d like to see him bash a perv when he tries to climb in his cot.

  88. Homily by Fr. Hotspur

    “Listen up, you dumb shits, quit doing that stuff that you know you’re not supposed to do. It’s the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Suggestions. Don’t believe everything you read online. Be a good parent, no one likes a spoiled brat. Above all, don’t be an asshole or a cunt. Thanks be to God, pass the offering plate.”

  89. I’d laugh and laugh.

  90. FrHotspur would be an excellent twitter handle


  91. You know Jesus was an illegal immigrant refugee.

    Yeah, and he was a Palestinian.

    *high fives MJ*

  92. FrHotspur would be an excellent twitter handle

    FrHotspur, OYM.

  93. Ah, no, on the road for the census, dumbass.

    Actually, they fled to0 Egypt. So technically they were illegal aliens.

  94. I haven’t been to church in years. I liked it, but I went mostly because we went to brunch afterward.

    One time the priest (obv gay) told us that he attended a Halloween party as Mark Spitz. He wore a speedo and a bunch of gold medals. Pretty clever costume, actually, but probably not great material for the part where they tell some sort of lesson during mass.

  95. Yeah, and he was a Palestinian.
    *high fives MJ*
    —————————
    Hahahahahaha. I miss your douche face. We def have to get together this fall when I’m in town.

  96. Actually, they fled to0 Egypt. So technically they were illegal aliens.

    Egypt was a Roman province at the time. It’s like fleeing New Jersey for Pennsylvania.

  97. MJ: Bless me Father, for I have sinned.

    Fr. Hotspur: Oh for pity sake, now what?

    MJ: *rattles off his sins*

    Fr. Hotspur: Christ dude, you come in here and recite the same shit every month.

    MJ: *gulps* But Father…

    Fr. Hotspur: Don’t come back until you’ve got some more interesting shit to tell me. And I don’t want to hear about your pet goat.

  98. Corey Booker actually said the abortion bill in Alabama is an assault on human rights.

    I love this guy. He gets a Grande Dumfuck with a shot of espresso, light cream, in a Venti cup.

  99. man. long day.

  100. You ain’t kiddin’.

    Customer asked for a last minute change to a planned deployment. I answered through an intermediary that it would cause the schedule to slip a month and gave my reasons. Today customer wants a meeting directly with me and beats me up for 45 minutes until I give them a pie-in-the-sky estimate of a 6 day slip if absolutely nothing goes wrong and I do nothing else until the task is done, including bringing new coworkers up to speed.

    I was not pleasant about this. I expect — and hope — to be removed from the project.

  101. If I am removed, it could result in my ultimate dismissal/firing.

    Exciting times.

  102. Well, I’m happy, and sad for you, leon.

  103. I’m waiting for the homily focused on the duty of an immigrant to assimilate and follow the laws of their host nation.

    /subscribes to Leon’s newsletter, before he monetizes it because he lost his job.

  104. What does it mean that the cases have been sealed? Isn’t there stuff the public can’t know anyway because it could affect the trial?

  105. I just hate when questions are repeated until the desired answer is received.

    “Things could go wrong, I factored that into my estimate. Things go wrong and I don’t want to be held to a schedule that doesn’t account for them. Further, adding this to what I’m already doing essentially as a one-man show (because only one other person on my team of 7 is worth a damn) means absolutely nothing else that’s also critical will get done while I work on this.”

    “But if everything goes right how long would it take?”

    Repeat x 5.

    Some sarcasm seeped into my replies by the 3rd iteration. Pretty sure an emotional reaction was being pushed for as some kind of pretense to say I’m some sort of shirker trying to pad the schedule. Hardly, the only way I get to stop doing this — other than a firing — is finishing the damn thing. I won’t take a minute longer than I need.

  106. Can’t plead insanity if Transgendered is the norm. See also Honor Killings and FGM trials in the CONUS.

  107. I have friends from Sam’s. They “Couldn’t “ have children. When I worked with them, they were foster parents. NM was dragging feet on their adoption. Broke their hearts to chose leaving NM and their fosters. Fast forward, life in FL was good. Successful pregnancy. Their early not expected baby is 6 months old today. He’s a RedSux fan. Claims the baby is wearing a nautical pattern, not pin stripes. Miracles happen. He tries not to think about the children they were forced to leave behind.

  108. everyone hold up the bulletin like they are reading it. (No one actually reads the bulletin.)

    That is actually a really good idea. Feedback from the captive audience. Brilliant.

  109. My Aunt Monica told us to run in and get the bulletin as proof when we’d rather party than go to Mass.

  110. https://tinyurl.com/y4sp765u

  111. Want to see something gross? Hillary and all her billionaire buddies at the Liberty museum opening. chelsea is pregnant with her third.
    And go down to the comments.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7034945/Statue-Liberty-Museum-opening-draws-star-studded-crowd-billionaires.html

  112. Huh, nary a conservative among them. Had Trump not won in 16 that event would have been broadcast live. Oprah is clearly not running for president but I think Hillary wants dark horse status.

  113. That is Hillary’s body double.

    The real HIllary is wearing a Biden suit.

  114. So much horrible in one place.
    Just read another article where chelsea is not ruling out running for office in the future because she’s so outraged by Trump. Dope should stay home and be a better mother to her children than her evil mother was to her.

  115. Ivanka and Jared are D🐀. Only Jr is a GOPer. Eric is being pushed right by all the attacks on his family.

  116. Ivanka can eat a bag of dicks.

  117. Agreed.

  118. Hi Laura! Thanks
    I still lurk but mostly pretty late so no one is around

  119. Same, I get out of work pretty late, and depending on how work went, it may take some time to decelerate.

  120. I remember that when I was in school, tired as hell but wound up and need time to unwind

  121. Yep. Still trying!

  122. Disorder, entropy, random particles.
