    For what it's worth, the staff at Queens was nice, when my mom was there.

    Talking Re: Pet Peeve of the Day - Chapter 3 - Slow Left Laners

    I know the hospital thing. My S.O. is a medical supe. We know hospitals are compartmentalized or/and fragmented these days, and with recent fires/terminations/restructuring, etc., it's a sad scene.
    I'm sorry for all who were impacted negatively - we were, too.

    Now, for MY pet peeve of the decade....

    People who drive under the speed limit in the left lane of two-lane expressways, like H-3 and H-2 especially....

    They jam up the traffic flow, AND are in violation of the law, which states that:
    Any vehicle in other than the right lane, if overtaken by a vehicle driving faster that they are, must move to the right at the earliest oppoortunity and allow the faster vehicle to pass.

    Not the exact words..., but....

    That's my Pet Peeve, chapter 3!

    We call them "LEFT-LANE ZOMBIES" because they are obviously either unaware of the world around them (like ZOMBIES), or are agressively pursuing vengance upon the innocent (LIKE ZOMBIES!)

    (Leo, if you jump in my fecals; for using the word ZOMBIE, claiming it is racist, you and I gotta meet at Makapuu for a secret meeting....*)

    mmm, complete lack of comprehension and/or mischaracterization of what i said.

    just because you smile at someone doesn't mean s/he owes you a smile back, or that you are given permission to go all smile gestapo on them. if you feel like smiling, smile away--joyfully, with sincerity. that's a beautiful thing. on the other hand, i feel that if you expect someone to smile back at you or if you tell them to smile, then you're--at the very least--sullying the whole loving, altruistic thing that smiles should embody. at most, you're being an insensitive, self-centered prick. of course, there are exceptions, like being in a job where you're paid to smile no matter what, like the tourist industry.

    what'd I do now - LOL

    alright....on a serious note....we all have our ways of expressing ourselves...be it convoluted or whatmay in addition each and every individual have his/her different way of placing his/her anger at anyone for reasons unknown to any of us.

    i must admit that i am self centered and who isn't? that alone will quantify my means as an individual on every level. we all come from different walks of life...rather our paths gracefully placed or tainted by the what mays we encountered; some not so memorable and some as examples at how we or i (Lomi) should be more careful at placing our thoughts and/or opinions based on consideration alone and not by our convoluted past.

    therefore i sincerely apologize to cynsaligia if i have placed my choice of words without consideration

    therefore i sincerely apologize

    ********

    on a more pet peevish note

    one of my other pet peeves are good looking men with less than perfect egotisitic attitudes. LOL

    mahalo and have a great aloha monday

    My biggest pet peeve are the drivers who KNOW the left or right lane is ending, yet purposely get out from the good lane and into the ending lane so they can cut off everyone else and be first. This is what causes about 90% of the delays on Ft. Weaver Rd. You KNOW the lanes are ending. Just stay where you are, let the people from the freeway merge in, DON'T CUT IN LINE, and the traffic will go so much faster.

    It's like, who are you to think you're better than everyone else in line? Why do you get to cut? And the thing that really makes me mad is PEOPLE LET THEM IN EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!! I don't. Then they get mad at me and give me the finger and all sorts of things, but screw 'em. Let them sit there! They did it to themselves! They're not any more special that we are, and they're the ones causing the traffic back-ups! I had to wait in a 30 minute lane and they can wait just like everyone else.

    This pisses me off to no end!

    OMG - this is EXACTLY my thought too! I just ignore them, look straight ahead and tail the car in front of me so they can't even try to sneak in front of me!

    My pet peeve of the day is the increasing negativity and arguments I'm seeing here on HT.
    1) Yes, there's a new troll or two, but it's common knowledge that while it can be fun to engage and outwit trolls, the best way to get rid of them is for everyone else to absolutely and totally ignore them. Trolls exist just to get a rise out of folks. No feedback and they go away quickly.
    2) I'm also disappointed that some of the regulars here are getting personal in their responses. Debating a message is fine; attacking the messenger sucks. If somebody else's post has you that riled up, wait 24 hours before you reply.
    Okay. Off my soapbox.
    Carry on.
    But please try to do it with some aloha.

    My screen name says it all (well almost). I hate people who do not follow the
    law and have their dog(s) on a leash on the streets or let them run loose.
    Follow through to that is those that DON'T PICK UP after their dog leaving
    piles of dog crap along the lawns that we walk on/by. This is a daily
    irritation during my 2 mile walks with Manele & Koele. I have been even
    known to call out to dog walkers who I see leave their pile on my lawn
    to FOLLOW THE LAW! One lady told me "well she's little and the pile is small."
    SO WHAT!!!!!!!!!! O.K. enough of that now!

    Sure, a few of your posts have been kind of over the top, but more in an amusing way than in a negative/angry way. It's the increase in the latter that may thin out the HT ranks.
    I used to moderate some forums, and in each I set up a section called The Sandbox. Any members who got into personality battles with each other would have their posts moved to The Sandbox, and they'd be restricted to that area so they could duke it out without disrupting the rest of the forums.
    And if it still got too out of control then BOOM they were permanently banned.

    And it should be noted that last resort has occurred here on HT to more than one member. Currently, the Sandbox™ here on HT is Private Messaging, so please kokua and don’t air out the personal grievances you may have with other HT members in this moderated public forum. Mahalo!

    Drivers who park during the rush hour commute in the spaces that are clearly marked as a tow-away zone from 3 to 6 pm. Don't park in front of that Mobi cellular store and Bank of Hawaii on King Street near Kaheka during afternoon rush hour. It's a tow-away zone. Let traffic flow!!!!!

    Calling state government offices. I have been dialing the same number for 2 hours this morning, and every time I think I get thru, this message comes on telling me about the high volume of callers, then hanging up on me.

    Thank goodness I have my laptop and the interweb to entertain me. While I was typing this I redialed probably 9 times!

    You know what I say about those kind of people? to them, its more like hurry up & stop .

    How about those drivers TRYING to get in, through people driving by on the road, & it takes forever to finally get in, because NO ONE wants to let you in.

    That also pisses me off to no end!!

    NO ONE is curtiouse enough to help you to let you in, especially, when you have an appointment to go to, &/or at least to a restroom & you really NEED to go so bad, that it is practicaly feels like it is starting to come out!!.

    OR, when you feel like that, especially when you are stuck in a traffic with everyone else, too. YIKES!!.

    Man!, what can a person do in a situation like that? don't think about it??
    I wonder. Hmmm.
