our friend travis grubbs and i were discussing pet peeves and we thought i would be a great idea to start up a forum for it. i thought at first to just limit it to diabetes, but thought i would be even more fun to widen the spectrum. so from mild to wild. from something as easy as everyday peeves to even something as silly as what your dog did today. let's have some fun and lay em out there.

my first pet peeve is my family's love of using their forks to get butter out of the butter bowl. knowing that it drives me nuts.

now it's your turn....what's your pet peeve?

LOL, Mark. :)
Well, I'm in line at the bank. It's nice & quiet. Suddenly, I hear loud music coming from behind me and it's not even good music. It sounds like a cheap transistor radio but......it's only a cell phone. The idiot behind me takes their time answering it (which means I have to listen to the tune over & over. Then they carry on a LOUD conversation while standing a few inches behind me. But....I gotta laugh when they pretend they just don't understand why they're getting dirty looks from everyone around them.

Love those bumper stickers that say "I'll bet you'd drive better with that cell phone shoved up your a--."
The the music loop during the menu screen of a movie on a DVD. I cannot stand it playing over and over and over and over....even the little clips included in the loop! Hate it!
people who are always late and the people who enable them by excepting it and saying they will be late for their own funeral. being consistantly late is rude and unexceptable. being late because of an emergency or something unexpected comes up is one thing but when you are late for everything there is a problem.

This is an experiment with a very old, long-threaded post to see if I can re-activate it for the fun of all our "newbies".

When I first joined TuD there were under a thousand members. We were much less factionalized and had a lot more fun and shared insights on how we moved through a difficult world in general. This post was a fun refuge.

Many pet peeves are, of course, about idiots giving us stupid cures for The D. But many others concern things like road rage encounters or my last one about Shrink Wrap.

Five years later, I hate shrink-wrap even more because my hands are more arthritic and just recently, my right little finger is numb.

Anyway---This is fun, if you are in the mood and get tired of all our D-related Pet Peeves.

Fire Away....Blessings all...Judith in Portland....
