    Peeve: Web sites or iPhone apps that ask you a question, then only give you one choice for an answer.

    LinkedIn keeps asking me if I know John Doe*, but the only choice is to accept a connection from this person. There isn't a choice for no, I don't know this person and please don't bug me about it again.



    *Name changed...
    **I only joined LinkedIn the help with the job search a couple of years ago. I have no use for most social media sites.

    People who pee standing up with the toilet seat down should be dragged out into the street publicly flogged.

    Homeowners that mix different color temperature light bulbs. Pick one or the other... soft warm light or bright cool light! So annoying.

    People who use apostrophe's in words that they want to make plural.

    I just noticed the LDS Tools update had the message "Fixed a bug in sending email's to lists of members."

    Use of "pound for pound" in evaluating a player's effectiveness. There is no reason to normalize on player weight.

    Peeve: distorted hold music while waiting to talk to someone on the phone.

    Right now I'm stuck for an estimated 40 minutes listening to what would actually be good music, but it's distorted, like an FM station that isn't quite tuned in. I've experienced this same thing on both government numbers and private businesses. Every time they stop to announce that they're sorry you have to wait, it's clear as can be. Why is the music so screwed up?

    And the worst part is that you have to listen, because when a human finally comes on, you only have seconds to respond to them or they will hang up on you.

    In many old phone systems, especially in older buildings, the music player is in some old closet and inevitably gets placed in such a position that it's either mounted next to a high voltage power line because that's the only available mounting space (don't want to run the actual phone/data lines near high-voltage lines) or it gets placed such that the output line runs next to a high voltage line at some point.

    The term "nothingburger". It seems like this entered the popular lexicon about 4 months ago, but it is already overused to the point of annoyance.

    Yes....also, "gaslighting" and "silos" are two that are overplayed already.

    Usually Tapatalk takes me to the first page, instead of the last one. I find it peevish. Today not so much, as I stumbled across this hidden gem.

    My real PP is being nice and holding a door open for someone somewhere with a line, and not having him ask me to go in front of them once inside. Even if I don’t go place forward, I should be given the opportunity to decide.

    When my husband doesn't listen to me. The other day, I asked him, "I cannot find the box of wheat chex in the garage food storage. Could you go find it?" He goes out there, and then calls me out to show me where it is. See, he didn't listen to me when I asked him to bring in a box of wheat chex.

    Why is it a matter of pride with the bishopric when they start exactly on time to the minute, but they don't care when the meeting runs over 10 minutes?

    I love my bishop for a lot of reasons, but none of my favorite things about him is that he’s hot afraid to start 5-10 mins late, and we rarely ever go over.

    Reasons not to care when the meeting runs over:

    1. Despite a lot of people thinking otherwise, Sacrament meeting is officially 70 minutes long and goes until 10 past the hour. If it's only going until 10 past the hour then it's not really running over.
    2. Give the ward in front of you a chance to clear out of the classrooms and halls (not relevant if you have 9:00 a.m. church)

    So, if the bishopric is letting the meeting go to, say, 20 minutes past the hour then I would agree that is excessive. But if they are letting the meeting go the full 10 minutes past hour then the above reasons are good reasons to do so.
