My deepest apologies! I don't intend to attack anybody here it sounded differently in my head...  

No worries, I didn't think that you actually intended to call me an idiot, I was just making sure that it was clear that I wouldn't buy overpriced things, I just was explaining why they were overpriced.

Okay, new peeve.
People who are "talking" to you, but don't show any signs that they actually are. They're basically talking to the air. But they're not...God !

I feel like I'm half guilty of this. I'll talk to the space around your face, but making eye contact, or even looking directly at someone's face when talking to them makes me nervous.

Yes, that's totally me! I can understand that it is annoying or even rude to others if you don't make eye contact but it is a real challenge to me.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Gaze avoidance is extremely common among shy or introverted people, not to mention folks on the autism spectrum. It is often interpreted as reflecting dishonesty or a lack of interest, when in fact what it reflects is that some people find eye contact really challenging. I have had to actively work at making eye contact, it makes a big difference in most businesses in terms of engendering trust and communicating confidence.

Retail pet peeve! When people come up to the cash register talking on their phones. Or playing around on their phones. Take care of that business before you come up to pay. Put the damned things down for oh, what, five minutes of your life?  a-hard-days-night-john-7

What is far worse is when the clerk at the counter ignores customers to talk (or text) on the phone.

Is it too much to expect you to do your job when you're at work?

1. This message I keep getting when I go on this site.

2. Guitars with glued on necks, this especially makes no sense with Gibson/Epiphone, who use bolt ons for their cheaper models but glued ons for their more higher end models, why would you want a guitar neck that's significantly harder to replace of it needed to be replaced, at least Fender got it right by including bolt ons with everything and not using glued ons except for their acoustics, which never use bolt ons.

3. The fact that most record players didn't automatically flip sides, this is understandable back in the days of Elvis and The Beatles but even the new players lack this feature whereas it's been available since the 1970's, why do people have to include the bad parts about nostalgia into modern remakes.

4. Even worse than that is when the sides of a double album go from 1 to 4 and then 2 and 3, like Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland or The Beatles Rock And Roll Music , this means if I want to listen to the album on a normal turntable, I have to swap records 3 times or pretend like Voodoo Child (Slight Return) is the end of side 2, which is probably what a lot of people thought back then.

Automatic record players are so bad for records. I personally prefer the manual ones.

But you see, those were made like that for the sake of automatic turntables.

They may have been made like that for automatic turntables, but those type of turntables were never popular and the only good use for them was for double albums of the 1423 variety, which was less than half of double albums.

BS! We all lie. Each and every one of us, including you, mmm! It is the only way to survive. We lie because, oftentimes, we may offend by being too honest, and while it's okay to offend the faceless masses, we try to avoid offending those we love.

There are questions you rarely are able to answer honestly if you don't want to offend someone you care about.

Does my bum look big in this? (No good answer!)

Do you like the red or blue dress better? (Really no good answer!)

Do you notice something different? (You can always try commenting on a nice new hairdo here. It's right a lot of the time. Just check they haven't had any tattoos since you last saw them!)

How are you? (God ! If we didn't lie to that question most of the time... Feck!)

We lie all the time. Big lies are a problem, but little white lies are the grease that keeps the wheels of life running.

There are situations where telling the truth could ruin everything. For example, if you are a soldier and were told the location and password of a secret bomb but was being interrogated by terrorists who are demanding to know the location and password of the bomb or they will continue the torture, giving false information can save you whereas telling the truth would allow mass destruction on par with Planet Of The Apes where the bomb was detonated and almost all life was destroyed only for it to come back many years later with monkeys and humans places being switched.

A few off the top of my head...

1. when teachers try to make you listen to music with only one earphone

2. when other vegetarians and/or stupid people think that gelatin is vegetarian

3. the unforgivable sin... when people stack their vinyl instead of standing it upright

4. when people don't know what they're talking about when debating a certain topic

5. the existence of all the Narrow-minded, hypocritical, homophobic, sexist, racist, chauvinist, idiotic arseholes in the world blue-meanie
