All my pretty colored leaves are falling... :( I love fall but I hate it when we lose our foliage....
Time to polish up the snow board I guess...

Back onto driving pet peeves:

Pick-up time at the kids' school gets downright insane when the weather turns, because you get a whole bunch of new people coming up to the school so their kids don't have to walk home. The problem is, they don't pay attention to the standard traffic pattern that has been established - or they just don't care - and think nothing of pulling up right smack in the middle of the lane, stopping, then honking the horn until their kid finds them. As luck would have it, their kids are always the dawdlers, too.

In the meantime, the rest of us, oh, all 30 cars or so, very courteously formed two lines, parked to the sides, got out and walked our asses up to the school to fetch our kids. It's really not that difficult to see what the standard practice is.

The other jerkwads hold up traffic so that now there is a long line of cars stuck in the road, traffic is snarled, tempers high and it is very difficult to find something to love about one's neighbor... all because some other people couldn't be bothered to be courteous and follow established procedure. Seriously? Their time is really that much more important than everyone else's that they feel justified in fucking up the entire routine? Must be nice to be them.

Me too, Nina. The leaves looked beautiful as of today, but there is supposed to be a rainstorm coming in this weekend...
Which means all those beautiful leaves are going to be on the ground, covering up the drains, and then making the streets flood. :(

And I don't do winter sports, personally...

Think positive....It's a bummer, I hope you get enough wind to blow the leaves out of the drains, flooded roads scare me! If you don't do Winter sports than getting cozy inside is the next best thing.. :)

People who leave their greasy fingerprints on my monitors and sexual predators.

When ALL buggers up on my phone and I have to load the same page 3x. Grumpy face.
And painful shoes that destroy feet, like the pretty little bitches I'm wearing today.... Un.

Wow, I really enjoyed reading through the older posts on this thread. We should give "Dude" a medal, he hit every nail on the head.

My pet peeves are fairly simplistic. I do not like bad manners, lateness, littering, or cruelty.

Hierarchical thinking, where some people are inherently better than others, and other people are inherently inferior, and if you're inferior you just have to accept it, there's nothing you can do. It's like predetermination.

Punching down, especially as an ego boost, to try to make oneself seem "cooler"/"better"/"higher" by comparison.

Also, the "I've got mine, fuck you" attitude. Especially when a lot of the reason that someone has theirs, is random chance, dumb luck.

All these get a hard "no" from me. I just can't be friends with people who have these attitudes/beliefs/personalities.

Oh almost forgot:

Hearing my parents moan about money. Even though I know I'm not perfect either. It's just depressing and demoralizing as hell. Makes me feel like powerless, ineffectual people is who we are. It's a total confidence killer, and contributes to my overall feelings of hopelessness, like escaping my problems is most likely impossible, there probably just isn't shit I can do. Definitely doesn't help my mood.

People who don't consider other viewpoints or interests apart from their own yet they insist that they know "the truth."

The one that I am reminded of every day, each time I turn on the news, is intolerance.

Politics, showbiz, sexuality, finance and health, even right down to the brand of truck you drive.

Weirdly, the most intolerant place that I can think of, is the land of the free, good old U.S. of A. Man, you're just filling up with hate for each other.

I'm no Christian, Buddhist, Muslim or Jew. But all of these have holy books that aren't too dissimilar in basic codes of conduct. Yet, we teach either hate of them, or hate of own.

I am forced to accept the pregnant transgender women are offended by being called a mother, or any reference to great feeding. But I can't call a manhole, a manhole.

My generation grew up watch Carry On movies, where everyone was mocked equally. There was no malice, no hate, it was just a way of celebrating differences. Gay men were a regular feature, in a time when it was still illegal in some countries. Women had liberation at a time when they didn't have equal pay. And many other regularly ignored positive factors. But, we are not supposed to tolerate this anymore, because it offends a whole bunch of people who probably got triggered at birth.

More so, I just wish that we were more tolerant about our differences. You be you, and I'll be me. If neither of us harms each other, game on!

If you want to be a lentil munching, tree hugging, wet-lefty, lesbian hindu; then fuck yeah! But don't expect the rest of the world to change just to accommodate your new found lifestyle. Do your thing, and allow me to mine, in Betamax, gas guzzling, with a burger in my hand.

In my mind
^ Hey man! I'm a binary zero now!

My term. I just made it up. I think that should stand for someone, either male or female, oops, man or woman, who has virtually no hope of getting a mate, yet they are not blaming the opposite sex, ooops the sex they are attracted to for it.

You'll notice there is no declaring one's own sex, born or otherwise so no confusion or hard difficult feelings:

Binary Zero Stick - No hope of mating up with a man.
Binary Zero Donut - No hope of mating up with a woman.
Binary Zero Open - No hope of mating up with either a man or a woman.
Binary Zero - No hope no matter what period. Not even worth adding another word to the nomenclature.

Can we make this a # tag and get this going?

And isn't binary declaring?
suggest you should also add this:
Binary Zero !Binary (Binary Zero NonBinary)- No hope of mating up with a non-binary

Can I also be a BZ? Or I'd better be Anyry Zero not offending non binary systems. And it sounds more like a superhero than someone who's lost a hope.

Welcome to the Zero new world

Omg pleaseeeee watch "platform" on Netflix, honestly thisss is what the point of it is, in my opinion.
Everyone is in a building and a platform starts at the top full of food and travels down, there Is 2 people to each room and it gives them a min or so to eat what they want before moving to the next floor, if everyone was considerate, everyone would eat, but everyone has the "Hierarchical thinking" and literally thinks "I've got mine, fuck you"... wow idk you just kinda summed it up for me.

As for my pet peeve, a partner who will use the silent treatment after an argument, i'm way too petty to play those kinda games with a man.
