I hate it when people don't use their blinker as much as they should. 

I admit I'm not the best driver-I go a little too fast in school zones and blare Eddie Cochran at an obnoxiously loud level, but thats beside the point. 

I Just Don't Understand  (get it?)  why people think its no big deal to change lanes without using their blinker. For gods sake, its only a matter of moving your hand an inch or two.

Posted on behalf of @Ahhh Girl who's still gallivanting around Italy.

mmm, look what I found in the Coin (store name) department store in Venice. Headphones that zip. Supposedly I won't have to deal with a tangled mess like you mentioned earlier in this thread. Once I've had a chance to use them, I'll report back how well they work.

Please do AG. I have my doubts they will do the job but who knows, maybe man has made another leap forward.

This, but I hate even more when people aren't paying attention and they miss a dedicated left turn.

Speaking as a pedestrian who has his life endangered regularly, I hate drivers in general. (Exception made for all the drivers here. And everybody who's ever given me a ride anyplace.) I haven't driven a car in nearly 20 years (literally; mid-June of 1994 was the last time.)

Leaving the house. I just want to stay curled up away from everything.

I'd have the motivation to go out if a certain other person felt the same way.

Or extension cords, or hoses - grrrr!

And why in the name of God and everything holy do my shoelaces knot up every time I go to take them off? Is that really necessary?

When you work with a small group of people on an assignment and one of them doesn't want to do any work and really fuck up their bit so you all get an F because it's a joint grade and everyone has to have their bit complete in order to even get points for that part.

And then you meet up with the group to write all of the conclusions together for the retake and everyone is supposed to have corrected their bits and finished and that same person as before hasn't completed nor corrected their bit. Of course you don't want to fail again, so what do you do? Right, help that person. We actually spent three hours correcting her bits. I've got plenty of stuff to do so it wasn't as if I would've been bored otherwise. I was incredibly annoyed. I've now spent half a day doing someone else's work, just because I don't want to fail. Working in groups is fine, as long as you work with the right people.

You tell your lecturer. We were told in college that if anyone is not pulling their weight after having it pointed it out by other folk in the group inform the tutor and they will take that into account when grading your work. It might feel like being a snitch but why risk low marks just because some lazy sod cannot be arsed.

Yeah, but we're already too late with that anyway. This is a retake. This is already our second chance. Also, we did discuss it at one point, but one of the others didn't agree with me. And if not everyone agrees, I don't want to be the one who goes ahead and is a snitch anyway.

Why anyone would choose to possibly fail instead of informing a lecturer one of the group aren't bothering their backsides on the assignment is a mystery to me. You tell, you hopefully pass, you move on. 

However it does depend. Is it a big assignment or just a trivial one that doesnt really matter in the long run?

 

A couple of pet peeves.

My dog has the unique ability to lie in the exact spot where you are going to be walking across a number of times meaning you have to walk over him to get by every damn time. Also when walking around the house he decides to stop, block the path and refuse to budge without some encouragement.

If it was an individual thing like she was cheating or not doing the work then thats up to her but for a big assignment and a re-sit i'd have my bases covered - just a personal opinion. 

If she's starting to take an interest i'd give her a chance whilst keeping an eye on her input. If there is little pay off have a quiet word with the lecturer (letting the rest of the group); not reporting her full out, just a heads up so that he or she knows the situation in case it comes down to the last minute and find that the rest of you are screwed. 

If i remember correctly mithveaen is a lecturer and Ahhh Girl works at a university so they might have some suggestions and advice from better, more experienced positions.

Hopefully Mith can help out. In my position, all I get to hear is students complaining about fellow students who are not pulling their weight in groups.

Oo, that's my Burgh accent there. 

I've heard Burgh-ese many times. I work with a few people from our Pittsburgh office. It took me quite a while to decipher "I onn a tonn hoss on the Sosside."*

*Translation: "I own a town house on the South Side."

More peeves:
People who air quote everything. I "hate that".

People who insist you look at pictures of their children when you did not ask to see them. "Oooh let me show you the pictures I took of little Johnny at the zoo!" Fuh-huh-huk you.

People who let their sentences trail off into nothingness. There is a server who does this at a diner Zag & I go to frequently for breakfast on the weekends. Every time he serves us, he will ask "Are you ready to order or......". Or what? Spit it out!! Am I ready to order or perform brain surgery right here on this table using nothing but this soap film spotted butter knife? Am I ready to order or start reciting the Bill of Rights in flawless Klingon? Am I ready to order or start running amok about the diner licking everyone's faces?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
