Angry Pet Peeve of the Day

With a tip o' the hat to anapuni808, sinjin, craigwatanabe, and other kinder, gentler folks (ha!), let's take a new tack from our "What Pisses You Off" heritage. Sure, you can still share things that piss you off, tick you off, anger or annoy you, you can hate if you have to... but let's also open the floor to more minor annoyances, those occassional sighs and eye-rolls, those daily observances of ridiculousness.

Which of your peeves have been petted today?

I sigh and roll eyes over those that forget they are living in a land of everblossoming tropical flowers (imbued with such essences as to stimulate the olfactory senses beyond the capacity of any perfumery of any country) and foliage of all hues of the rainbow. which incidentally are almost everpresent here also. I lament the lack of appreciation in the hearts and minds of many here who don't know they are living in probably the most gorgeous place on earth, a land populated by the most amazingly beautiful people known to history, a group of islands that far too many have sacrificed far too much for, so a few can drive around and while honking, or not honking, maybe or maybe not, enjoy and appreciate this garden of eden.
I subscribe to the dictum, show an attidtude of grattitude. Or you will lose it.

Pet Peeve of the past few days, and most likely the next week or so....

I made a good on one of my New Years' Goal, resolution,promise...whatever, and bought a bicycle. Nice one too....

The peeve....it's too friggin cold to ride right now. Only got to ride one day before we got our unusually cold weather.SoCal is goin thru a major cold spell right now. I'm talkin about ice on the sidewalks cold. Maybe this one should go into the "what pisses you off" thread. What a bummer.

Right on, Kimo...

Outside of commercial airline flying, which has become one big peeve, I'd have to say it's those groups of people who walk along slowly, obliviously, unnecessarily taking up an entire sidewalk/isle... slowly moving back and forth as if tantalizing you with the possibility of passing them, but never actually giving you enough room to do it without being rude.

Oh wait.. you said pet peeves, not "petty peeves"

Cool Re: Pet Peeve of the Day

i don't care much for sanctimonious folk who are preachily engage others in conflict by making ill-conceived assumptions and accusations. such people clearly lack true intellectual curiousity while presuming to be judgmental. often when you confront such a person in a face-forward and honest manner, he shows his true nature of cowardly impotence.

*heh*

Spin off of Bard's peeve: people who walk in the middle of the road at Costco. Like they're car proof. Or in fact the people pushing their carts full of little kids blocking aisles, waiting for their 4 free samples of Honey Bunches of Oats.
Or people whose blinkers are obviously broken, or must be because they dont use them.
grrrrrrr

Yeah, that Cosco one has come up before. I appreciate that you haven't seen aunty and uncle in days, but there are probably better places to stage a family reunion rather than in the middle of the main aisle. Some of us have gotten Costco shopping down to a science, and given efficient traffic flow can get in and out in ten minutes... but not when we have to stop every few feet for a big round of hugs.

ha. sound like coulda been the origin of the phrase... but googled it:

By definition, a Pet Peeve is a complaint, annoyance or a grievance; favored, cherished, or held above others. Taken literally it almost seems to be an oxymoron

People who have trouble accepting that not everyone in the world operates with the same mind-set as themselves; people who seem to be easily annoyed at the existence of other beings sharing the planet with them; people who find fault in the (to them) unfamiliar or quirky behaviors of other folks; people who get themselves into apoplectic fits (or heart attacks or cancers or at least hypertension) over little, unimportant-in-the-grand-scheme things, like traffic jams (be they on the streets or in the stores.)

Bard has it right: petty.

This world doesn't belong to any single one of us; we share it, and the available space and resource is limited - as is any one person's time on it; don't waste it being upset by the petty.

Oh, and one more peeve: people who get all new-age preachy, like I just did there. Have more FUN, people - and don't hurt anyone in the process!

My pet peeve of the day that was petted and PETTED this weekend.

People who do not take responsibility for their own children meanwhile fully expecting you to care for them while demanding to maintain all priviledges of a full time caregiver and the right judge (and yell at) you on how you nurture "their" children.

~sigh~

-colonialism
-globalization
-religious fanatics- people who hide behind god
-the far right
-the far left
-the middle- who are too afraid to pick a side
-the Asians,filipinos, and whites who pretend to be Hawaiian. or take a pathetic attempt to redefine the definition of "hawaiian/kanka maoli" to identify themselves as "hawaiian/kanaka maoli" to suite their own lack of cultural identity.

No koko = No Hawaiian/Kanaka Maoli

Hey, be proud of being a pinoy or Bisayan.

No koko= No Hawaiian/Kanaka Maoli. If you do have Kanaka Maoli koko then go ahead and be proud. If not...no need to pretend, be proud of your own culture and dont disrespect your ancestors.

I don't really have one I experienced today, so maybe someone else can start

You mean...there's an official "system" where you gotta register as "left," "right" or "middle" and all that? I must have missed the memo...do we get membership cards, badges, window decals, stuff like that?

Or just file folders at FBI headquarters, like they already have on me?

OK, OK, seriously now - give me a little more on what you see as the system, what it means, how to get rid of it, and what will take its place? Are you thinking the two-party political structure (where the two parties aren't really very far apart at all, IMO) - do you think there's a better way? You got me curious...

It's good to be King, eh, braddah Kimo? In your presence, we are mere pretenders to the throne. (If I had a "smiley" that represented bowing down to you...I still wouldn't use it; "smileys" piss Ryan off! And with that, the post stays on-topic.)

My view was from the indigenous peoples and cultures around the world who have been raped and oppressed by colonialism and western thinking. But it can be applied in much broader sense..

Correct...
I don't think the 2 parties are very far apart because they both play the same game. Compromise...corruption. They have a set of rules already written so they have limited moves they can make. The whole system of government and way of life needs to go. Key to any great nation is self sufficiency. Globalization will be the death of humanity. Do you disagree?
