    I stopped reading after he said his Bishop was hot. I thought that's what he was referring to.

    Hot afraid. Kind of like those scantily clad girls in a horror movie or something.

    Guys at church who try to quiet things down in priesthood by giving the scout sign. Especially if he is trying to quiet adults.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I get annoyed by anybody who says "For those of you who don't know me..."

    And it's not just at church. We attended a live performance earlier in the week of a woman portraying Coretta Scott King, and the guy who made the first announcements started off that way. Just say your name, which is the same whether those listening know you or not.

    Do it like this guy, who I'm sure everyone in the audience knew:

    Good point. I have been known to say this. I will take this under advisement.

    My neighbor and friend hates that too. Whenever he speaks in church, he says "For those of you that don't know me, my name is _____. For those of you that do know me, my name is still ____."
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Drug labels where they hide the directions telling you how much to take or how often to take it among tons of disclaimers and warnings. And it's all in a very tiny font that is difficult to read even for people with good eyes. Most of the warnings are lame, obvious stuff, but I actually need to know the dosage and frequency.

    A woman I married washes her hands frequently. She pumps the hand soap dispenser multiple times each time she washes - at least twice, often more. Most of the soap from those excess pumps ends up sliding off her hands and down the drain. She may as well just pump the soap directly into the sink.

    Can I add multiple pet peeves from the same experience?

    1 - Standing in a LONG line to order lunch at some place, and when you are 3 from the front, the person you are standing behind is joined by 4 individuals representing a LARGE family sitting over at the tables - so you realize that the 1 person you are standing behind just turned into 15 and you were fooled by what may have appeared to be a shorter line 15 minutes ago, but really isn't.

    2 - So then, when it's now their turn, they all turn and look at each other and start asking what does everyone want. Complete with shouting back and forth with the people sitting at the tables, who aren't sure what they want either. Um...we've been standing in this line for 15 minutes now, and NOW you decide maybe you should look at the menu and decide what you want to eat?!? Seriously?

    Get some of that foaming soap. I love that stuff. And there is less waste when you use it.

    The problem with the foaming soap is that it eventually starts to clog up the pump. As you press on the pump it starts to spray out the foam instead of gently dispensing the foam. If you don't clean the pump regularly then you'll eventually end up with soap on your shirt after an inadvertently too-hard pump press.

    The cheap ones work that way. We get ours from Bath & Body Works and have never had one clog, even after a full year.
