    Default Pet peeves that should be pet peeves

    In opposition to baygirl's "Pet Peeves That Shouldn't Be Pet Peeves" thread,I present "pet peeves that should be pet peeves".

    To start, clean the snow off of your vehicle and this means your windows too. No, what your wipers clear off is not enough. No, it means scraping all side windows clear. NO, it doesn't mean the air moving over your vehicle while you drive is adequate for said snow removal. No, leaving your lights covered with ice/snow/crud is not cool.

    Just buy a f%@king snow brush - $1.99 plus $0.10GST will get you the base model at Canadian Tire. Hell, put on gloves/mitts and a winter coat and push that white shit off of your vehicle with your arm - even that's more adequate than doing nothing at all.

    edit: flame suit is on for the eventual HF rant against myself, it's inevitable.

    When people think that freedom of speech means freedom to say whatever you want without reprisal.

    People that chew with their mouth open.

    Inconsiderate drivers.

    People that get easily offended by every little thing.

    Third-wave feminists (similar to the above point I suppose).

    People who clip their nails in the office. Stop it, do it at home or something you goof.

    FOB Asians that slurp their Pho...and pretty much any other food. Horrible.
    However, I accept it because Pho is delicious.

    I tend to agree, BUT I have been known to leave a small layer of snow on the car because I'm not going to scrub my clearcoat with a horse hair like brush.

    So you'd rather me bump an almost 5 year old thread and get flamed for that then? I did a cursory search back for 1 year and didn't find any relative threads (other then Toma's specific one) and thougth it would be best to create a new thread - sorry to have offended you.

    Then you're going to get quite annoyed with a fair number of beyond users in a very short time - btw, welcome to beyond.

    When people don't have the common courtesy to shake the snow or mud off their shoes when they get into your car.

    Even worse: when people have the courtesy to do so, but instead of clicking their feet together outside of your car, they bang their feet along your side skirt.

    New pet peeve: people who go out of their way to be dicks on a public forum.

    I was thinking above the second point when I was reading the first.
    How does that make it better? Think McFly! Think!

    Somewhat similar, at the skihill, instead of packing his snowboard back into his bag on the ground, buddy tried to do it in my trunk and dropped his board onto my bumper. Excellent, now I don't have snow in my trunk, just a dent on my bumper.

    People who are obnoxiously loud when talking on the phone, as if its their goal to let everybody know in the office or where ever of EXACTLY what their talking about.

    Its like, god will you STFU.

    Then you're doing it all wrong - beyond ballers park inside everywhere all the time.

    Soft tip brushes are widely available.

    I only have hated parking 5 days a week, but it does lead me to be a bit lazy when brushing snow off the roof of my truck. I still get the windows nice and clean though.
