It's a BC Rich Warlock... wasn't aware anyone else made them. Was too lazy to type the company earlier I guess.

Peeve.



I get peeved that some people seem to be always peeved, even outside the peeve thread.

Some guy I used to work with just posted something about being out of tampons. Clearly his girlfriend got on his phone and posted some shenanigans. Whatever, that doesn't bother me. Then the first reply was, "LOL WHO HACKED YOU". Someone grabbing your phone isn't "hacking".

Also agreeing to let apps post on your behalf on Twitter and Facebook and then mysteriosuly those apps post things on your behalf, that's not being hacked either.

I live in a suburban-type area. In my neighborhood parents drive their kids to the bus stop, which can't be more than 1/8 of a mile away.
That bothers me. The whole "In my day..." thing.

Then, not only do they drive them there but they wait in their cars for the bus to come. So often they'll be four deep at an intersection. They pull off the road slightly. But it makes navigating the intersection where there are children present much more difficult and dangerous. And if there's just one of them (like there was this morning) I don't know if they're just waiting their turn at the stop sign or what. They didn't have their four-ways on. So I sat there like a doofus waiting for a bit. Then when I figured they were waiting for the bus I went around them. Now, because I had to go around I end up going over in the other lane where oncoming traffic turning onto this street would be coming. Any car turning in here wouldn't be expecting my car to be in their lane. Bad news.

Why do they do this? Are they worried about their kid being kidknapped? They do it in the summer too. What's more likely to happen? Their kid getting kidknapped or causing an accident in which their child was involved because they were all hoarded up at the stop sign. And these aren't just 7 year olds either.

For realsies, though, I walked 1/2 mile home from school. I don't like parents. Parents are my irrational pet pieve.

There was a time when I talked my bus driver into dropping me off/picking me up in front of my house. It was about a mile around the block and there were stops at the 1/4 points around this block except the one where my house was and the bus went past my house. The point of this though, is that I always wanted to get in the car and have my mom drive me down the driveway to the bus when it arrived.

I think it depends. The schools where I live today are not really in walking distance for the majority of kids.

Where I grew up, the elementary schools (most of them) were build right in the middle of giant housing plans where a lot of kids could walk, and they still do to this day.

I used to crawl to school through five hundred yards of crap smelling foulness you can't even imagine, or maybe you just don't want to. Five hundred yards. That's the length of five football fields. Just shy of half a mile.

Pet Peeve: A football field is 120 yards, in America at least.

In my area, yes for elementary school (except special needs) and no for middle and high school.

There's definitely a market.
I can't tolerate caffeine and I want to jump out of my skin, if I eat coffee ice cream.....which happens to be my favorite. :(

I saw this a bunch during the Olympics, but it drove me nuts when people would refer to them as "gold metals". Thank god I don't have to be annoyed by that for another 2.5 years.
