Re: Pet Peeves?

Pretty sure I've mentioned it before but cashiers not being able to make change when you give them coins with a bill. Say your total is $3.10 and you give them $5.10 so you can avoid getting change back. Which is even more baffling since the registers do the math.

So along the same lines I ran across a new one at Taco Bell the other night. The girl gave me the total, $13.50 or something, I handed her a $20 bill and told her I had the $.50 and proceeded to hunt through my pocket for it. While I'm looking for the change the girl says "no thanks, I'll just give you change." and hands it to me. I was dumbfounded and had no response.

Lesson learned I guess. Now I hunt for the change first.

If there were customers behind you, I don't blame her. I've waited behind people as they search pockets and purses only to not find the change they thought they had. I'm sure she sees it constantly. Always have the change ready without going searching.

Re: Pet Peeves?

Brings me to one of my pet peeves. People who wait until they receive the total from the cashier before they dig into their pocket or purse to get the money or card. Woman are greater offenders than men. If you are paying by card, no reason not to have it out. If you are paying cash, you must have some idea how much it is. At least have your freaking wallet out.

Re: Pet Peeves?

^ It's like they think their meal has a chance of being free, and are surprised to need money.

One of my pet peeves is when people take up an entire hallway as they walk (usually slowly). The hospital has some super wide hallways, big enough for 5 or more people easily, but couples will walk down the exact middle, with a space between them, making it impossible to pass without saying something or brushing against them.

Or the people who walk along one extreme side like they're supposed to, but choose the wrong side. I never move for those (English?) people.

Ultra-offenders (though rare these days): the people who then pull out a checkbook. You knew you were writing a check, and you didn't even have the checkbook out? Let alone the payee, date, signature (not like those weren't known or not needed).

I walk across downtown Denver every workday at 5pm. I have a lot of pet peeves about the way people walk. Those groups (usually tourists, but not always) who take up the whole sidewalk, those who walk with no awareness, like walking into the middle of the sidewalk and stopping without looking around, etc. Good lord every day is a fucking obstacle course.

Was behind one in a grocery store this week. This lady had probably 5 minutes while the cashier was ringing her up. It was only after getting a total does she reach into her purse and pull out her checkbook and start writing. I know it's only a minute but really. Everything could have been filled out just waiting for the total.

1. Not a single person in line but me.
2. I don't usually have change, but did that day so when it was low enough I went digging. I had the bill ready to go.

Never thought about it before, but it does come off as kind of dickish.

Though I'm sure no offense is meant, and it's just a canned response that has become part of the vernacular.

My wife does it all the time. I know she doesn't mean anything by it, but it still annoys the heck out of me.

Re: Pet Peeves?

This might have been mentioned before, but people who don't have a concept of space while waiting in line for something. It happened a lot when I was in Europe waiting in line for various tours and landmarks, but I never understood why people get right up behind you and even bump in to you in a line that obviously isn't going anywhere.

I guess it's not too different from cars that come to a complete stop at a light or something, then decide to inch up closer.

I realized why this is suddenly a problem after 6+ years. I haven't been using the A/C. Normally there's enough ambient noise (AC, fan) to drown it out. I also haven't been using my headphones much. Now I have to listen to it and it's driving me nuts.

Re: Pet Peeves?

This one has been a reoccurring one in my life. I am home nearly all the time, so I am Mr. Mom. I am always home before her, so make dinner and it is ready when my wife comes home. On her way home she talks to people on the phone. She has this habit of continuing the conversation on when she gets inside, delaying dinner. Well if it we're just me, I would be like whatever, but we have two kids who are hungry and want to eat. I have had conversations with her about ending the call before she gets home so she can come in and have dinner together as a family. That usually fixes the problem for a month or two but it goes right back. I just yelled at her tonight, while she was on the phone with whoever she was taking to, telling her to hang up. Anyone else have a spouse who does this? It is fucking infuriating. I am not trying to be petty but I am just considering eating with kids before she gets home a few times just to show her how fucking obnoxious her behavior is.

My wife does the same thing. Usually she's not expecting dinner to be ready when she walks in the door so I can sort of understand her not hanging up before getting home but occasionally it is and she still takes her time getting off the phone. Usually if I start the kids and myself eating on our own while she's still on the phone she gets the message. Doesn't stop her from the next time she does it though.

Not really a pet peeve for me but definitely annoying at times.

Re: Pet Peeves?

Can you just passive agressively start dinner without her and maybe she'll get the hint?

Just remember these rules:

1.) Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for her return. This is a way of letting her know that you have been thinking about her and are concerned about her needs.

2.) Most women are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially her favorite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.

3.) Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so youíll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. She has just been with a lot of work-weary people.

4.) Be a little gay and a little more interesting for her. Her boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.

5.) Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your wife arrives. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper, etc. and then run a dust cloth over the tables.

6.) Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for her to unwind by. Your wife will feel she has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for her comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.

7.) Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the childrenís hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair and, if necessary, change their clothes.

8.) Children are little treasures and she would like to see them playing the part. Minimize all noise. At the time of her arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.

9.) Be happy to see her. Free her with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please her. Listen to her.

10.) You may have a dozen important things to tell her, but the moment of her arrival is not the time. Let her talk first ó remember, her topics of conversation are more important than yours.

11.) Make the evening her. Never complain if she comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand her world of strain and pressure and her very real need to be at home and relax.

12.) Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility where you wife can renew herself in body and spirit.

13.) Donít greet her with complaints and problems.

14.) Donít complain if sheís late home for dinner or even if she stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what she might have gone through that day.

15.) Make her comfortable. Have her lean back in a comfortable chair or have her lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for her.

16.) Arrange her pillow and offer to take off her shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.

17.) Donít ask her questions about her actions or question her judgment of integrity. Remember, she is the master of the house and as such will always exercise her will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question her.

18.) A good husband always knows his place.

19.) If she is talking on the phone, when she arrives, wait to have dinner with her. It's probably very important, but too difficult for you to understand.
