    Pet Peeves

    The mower height thread got me thinking, what are some pet peeves you guys have. For me I hate when people drive around in the winter winth snowplow blades on their truck. They think there awesome when they don't do anything they just drive around.

    Re: Pet Peeves

    Being an aggressive guy, my neighbor across the street has a big truck snowplow outfit, and he is determined to move his driveway snow onto my yard before I can snowblow my drive. Had a tense chat with him a couple of years ago. Now he moves it at least ten feet on either side of my drive. Last year the snow on my side was piled 10-12 feet high. I found my sidewalk after a couple months.

    old people driving, I think once you hit 65-70 yrs old, you should be required to take a driving test to validate your license.

    Turn signals. Use them people. Last time I checked I can't read people's minds so no.... Don't give me that stupid look because I didn't know you were turning. USE YOUR DAMN SIGNAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bottled water: I don't know if I am more mad at the fact that people are making so much money off of this or people actually by water like they do soda. They can't just use reusable water bottles.

    Ugs: I can't believe females wear these stupid boots as they have no purpose outside and it's too much footwear to be wearing indoors.

    I make you mad when I leave my blade on my truck in January when the forecast calls for snow the next couple days?

    Re: Pet Peeves

    Drivers who don't use turn signals. What do you stand to gain by not moving your left hand over to communicate what you're going to with your 2-ton machine. Like not using your turn signal is really going to save you time in your life.

    Just make sure you use your turn signal. A freaking lost art these days.

    I don't have any major ones, but it drives my wife CRAZY when people ride their bike on the street next to a bike path. Actually, this drives several people I know crazy.

    People who use their cell phone while driving. If I'm ever in an accident because they're on their cell phone, they better hope I end up dead. Otherwise I'll get out of my car and just start punching them in the face.

    I hate when people say legit, epic, fail (or win in the same context) and such.
