Fun Day Monday - Pet Peeves

May 24th, 2010
By

The other day, I saw some clown wearing his shades indoors. Mo' worse, it was night time. *groan* I never understood this. Am I supposed to be impressed with their uber coolness or somethin'?

Now I know that there may be some - with serious eye issues - who have the need for darkened lenses, and I completely sympathize with them. The peeps I'm actually talking about are the "I'm-wearing-these-mack-daddy-shades-at-night-so-I-can-attempt-to-be-too-cool-for-school" type. Oh boy.

Now that we have an entire weekend under our belts, I thought this might be a good time to vent, ala kuya.d's "I'm So Over It" post. And yeah, I could've sworn we've done this "pet peeve" topic before, but the only one I could find was our traffic pet peeve post. So vent it all out. What are some of your biggest pet peeves?

    That was me. And i'm not just some clown. I'm thee clown- who's future so bright,i gotta wear shades....mack-daddyo.


  2. hemajang:

    yeah Mr. Ed, wearing sunglasses at night is pretty ridiculous but you know, I remember doing that as a kid in cub scouts...our troop was assigned to watch over the displays in the gym at a carnival. I was standing over the orchid display and had on my cheap sunglasses in the gym, in my clown, err I mean cub scout uniform on, at night...thought I was so uber cool. Reason I remember this was because my aunty came by and said..."Take off those ridiculous sunglasses!"

    I have a bunch of minor kine pet peeves, but slow, oblivious drivers in the fast lanes irks the bejeezus out of me.

    Djou won because dems couldn't settle between Case and HanabUSA...thought she was clever with her name. Anyway, they can duke it out and settle in the primary.


  3. frankie:

    DJOU, baby!

    The Dems and journalists who are writing it all off to the Democratic split are just whining. People don't realize how much animosity there is between Case and Hanababooza's camp. It's not improbable that many of Case's centrist voters would not vote for old machine disciple Hanababooza in the general election and will cast a vote for Djou instead. And many of Hanababooza's followers consider Case a traitor and either will not vote for Djou or will not vote at all in the general election.

    Remember, Case is disliked by many establishment Dems and Hanababooza has had her little scandals in the past (not including the 30% pay raise while the rest of Hawaii was suffering). Just look up the situation regarding her and her Ko Olina condo. Djou, on the other hand, has not had any scandals, and joined the military reserves after 9/11.

    I just hope the people of Hawaii vote with their minds and not just the way their union bosses tell them to. As long as they do that, I'm happy with either Case or Djou in November, otherwise we're headed towards the fates of Greece and California.

    As for pet peeves? Harley Davidson and other motorcycle riders who have to rev their engines all the time to make up for their small gonads.

    Remember, Djou only needs to get 11% of those who voted for Case or Hanababooza and he's in.


  5. M:

  16. Chicken Grease:

    Love the idea of the new Hawaii 5-0; they should wear bullet proof vests all the time like how they're shown in the promos. There doesn't seem to be a lot of crime in our fair state and, well, you know, the concept of the fictitious "Hawaii 5-0" state police unit is to, well, police the state. I wouldn't think the Oahu office (which is where the previous 1970-80s TV show took place as is this new version) would have to go over to the other islands to fight crime on a daily basis, so, I hope there are 5-0 office there, no? Maybe some spin-off series a-coming up like how there are for the Law and Order and CSI shows. Can have, like, Hawaii 5-0: Maui or Hawaii 5-0: Molokai (the latter, maybe, here's a possible TV listing description: a kupuna is accused of shoplifting from one of the island's few stores creating a conundrum for the Molokai Hawaii 5-0 team already busy with a missing cow case . . .. Anyway, the promos look action-packed. Hey, Hawaii's supposedly the home of crystal meth', good weather for the Mary Janes, and . . . what else? The occasional fight at nightclub? Looks like the 5-0 team DOES have their hands full. I swear if I manage to see Grace Park in front of me face alla sudden somewheres around town, I will simply cry. She would think I am a kook, but, is just takusan kirei. A cast member from the newer Battlestar Galactica. Just terrific. Cannot handle. Grace Park. Maybe the 5-0 team will need to investigate a Grease for chasing around 5-0 Officer Grace Park. I can be a recurring villain or something, be one of Wo Fat's crew or something, too. I love the idea of 5-0 . . . has very, very Miami Vice-like potential, too.

    Now, this recent election, I just simply loved how the Democratic party came up with all kinds of excuses with the loss-- "oh, look, the two Democratic candidates STILL got more votes than Djou." Now, I've said before, I almost always vote Democrat but I consider myself independent, so independent, I 'm not even with the Independent party [!] . . . simple, you doing a good job, I guess I'll vote you back in . . . but, the whole dealings here is making me lean even MORE toward becoming Independent and just voting for the heck I want (might be difficult in a General election, but, hey, Djou what you gotta Djou just might be the case in November).

    The Democrats showed the ultimate in dis-unity in this effort. They needed to see that the Dem' who got Abercrombie's seat for the next few months 'til November would've most probably WON in November, too. They needed to do something to NOT "split the vote." They KNEW this was going to happen, why not prevent it? This is my BIGGEST complaint with this party nowadays . . . this seeming laziness to take action to yield better results. Voted for Obama, LOVE Obama and most of the things he's doing, but, DANG something tells me a Republican administration would've threatened BP execs w/jail time if they didn't get that oil money shot plugged up a week after the thing started leaking (I mean, that both Bush's faced tyranny head-on in their respective administrations . . . W. took down the evil in Iraq in, what? One week?). DIS-UNITY is what I see going on with this party. Sickening. They really needed to just offer one candidate. They didn't. And now I just might veer off from my template way of voting come November.

    Anyway, Djou represents the first true X-Generation person from our state really getting to point of Washington power, so, I think his election is good. I cannot stand the baby-boomers who refuse to retire (and, in order to do so, shove the law in the rest of our faces), I'm tired of the Y Generation thinking their ma and pa's paying of their monthly phone bill-type lifestyle is a matter of course. We healthy, we ready, we think clearly, and we got our own money now . . . X-Generation is comin', ya'll, so, I hope most of you can re-educate (or educate) ya'llselves on things 1980s, ultimate fairness (no party politics here), and, uh, the original Star Wars (1977). And we use computers as they SHOULD be used and we got great hairlines and wear clothes that fit, too [!].

    P.S. Ed, you get me e-mail? What you think? Gonna get some o'those to put on your desk @ work? :P


  17. Chicken Grease:

    W--w--w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w- wait, one thing, one thing (and this rant is appropros, I declare, 'specially right after my Gen-X jingoism display).

    Ed.

    C'mon, now.

    I'll . . . I'll . . . I'll maybe make an excuse, maybe you were a chisai kodomo @ the time of Hart's Sunglasses at Night.

    But, hai doozo . . . please consider . . .

    His video. His chorus. One of the coolest things in pop music. Ever.

    The idea, can't state it enough. "Sunglasses at Night." The coolest. Let's sing some of it, shall we?

    And she's got control of me
    I turn to her and say:
    'Don't swith a blad on the guy in shades, oh no!

    [quick guitar riff]
    Don't masquerade with a guy in shades
    Oh no!
    I can't BELIEVE IT, you got it made with the guy in shades OH NO!

    Yeahhhhhh, man!!!! Every part of that song is good. No weird turns like in some songs. Solid, solid tune. Great concept. Man, your thoat get itchy after singing like a Corey Hart.

    Not a pet peeve of mine. Quite.

    Pet Peeve's OF Grease (PPOG): 1) couples acting up, talking loud, bearing all of their life (via their mouths [!]) at a restaurant, in public; 2) loud teens in public (see a pattern here?); 3) loud cars who are never convinced that the world DOES SEE THEM, WE REALLY DO SEE YOU, BRAVO, BRAVO!! SPLENDID, SPLENDID, CONGRATULATIONS. NICE TOUCH REVVING THE ENGINE AND PLAYING YOUR VEHICLE STEREO SYSTEM LOUDER THAN MOST AC/DC CONCERTS WILL CRANK THEIR OWN VOLUME LEVELS TOWARD. OH, YOU'RE HERE ON THE PLANET, I DIDN'T KNOW? NOW MAYBE YOU CAN GO TO ANOTHER PLANET. YES? THANK YOU!

    MTV (not the channel that still plays music videos most of the time and not the '80s blocks) is a pet peeve of mine.
    These are just some of The Grease's pet peeves ;) .


  18. Chicken Grease:

    Oh, frankie!!!! I just saw your motorcyle complaint of revving engines!!! Hah hahaha!!! See, we are right!


  19. NeedaHobby:

    I don't like it when people don't return phone calls ... or, people who don't use their blinkers when driving. Grr...

    Way to go Wahine! Go get um against Alabama!


  20. uncle jimmy:

  21. uncle jimmy:

  22. Rosette:

    oh I better not list my long list pet peeves or I be sent away to those anger management group!


  23. Rosette:

    yes if I list my pet peeves it will air HAWAII FIVE 0 show....funny....


  24. Rosette:

    OH I got juicy pet peeves....when I fianlly buy a new purse then I end up going to movie buy popcorn and have popcorn oil all over the purse..or when I finally get to movie I be stuck behind a guy with shiny head so I need my sun glasses!


  25. Rosette:

    Hawaii Five-O....I wonder if they will upgrade technology .... 20 years gap.... I was reading "Mercury Marquis back to life"...does it come with computer this car...omg..yes get the pimp my ride guy to fix that..funny...


  26. skycastles:

    I really hope the new 5-0 stays afloat . . . but the last two shows starring Alex O'Loughlin completely flopped. I enjoyed the vampire one he was in but that didn't last long. The doctor drama he did was really junk and definitely no match for Grey's. He must really be a nice guy if they keep giving him starring roles to play.


  27. skycastles:

    On to pet peeves:

    - When people use up everything and don't replace it (toilet paper, paper towels, etc)
    - When no one wants to eat the last thing on the plate or in the jar and they just leave it
    - Slow drivers in the fast lane
    - People who can't make up their mind which lane they're in
    - Really strong perfume or cologne
    - When people don't replace the paper in the copy machine or printer
    - When people call you and you call them right back a minute later and they don't answer you
    - People who jump into your conversation and then can't stop talking about themselves
    - People who use/borrow your stuff but don't put it back where they took it from

    Wow, I got a lot :lol:


  28. bB:

    i agree with sc about driving plus:

    people who don't turn on turn signal
    cross solid lines when they turn
    who drive slow and when the light turns yellow hits the gas and then you miss the light.
    when some decides to pull a u turn on a busy highway.

    when people you hang up the phone on you

    co workers complain about the same thing over and over again and don't do anything about it.


  29. Rosette:

    see reason why I stay home relax after two kids...no cash but I got my purse...I tell my husband oh look I got this purse no money...funny..my cash is the purse omg!

    my luck I go out for dinner I be stuck with stinky butt guy.. or go to movies I end up going to toilet every half hour...my husband takes me out after I buy brand new purse other years he wont order popcorn this year when i got brand new pretty huge purse he buy popcorn and drink I am thinking is this guy purposely going to ruin my purse with no cash....ha ha ha..or you sit in movie a guy with shiny big head blocking my eyes...! REASON WHY I STAY HOME SO I DON"T GET STRESS STUCK WITH STINKY GUY ..imagine I get a job I be screaming at the customer.... see I spend my time with my lilly flowers they don't talk back or stink..PEACE AT LAST ALL ALONE.


  30. Rosette:

    oh the biggest peeves my husband friend calling at 2 am after I am fully asleep the moron calls us...if the guy has issues quit bugging us calling all hours! IF YOU PICK FRIEND MAKE SURE THEY NOT PEST..after raising two kids I don't have patience for morons with issues...I am enjoying my peace and some moron has to bother me!


  31. Rosette:

    when I do things I plan carefully so I wont get too stressed out..if I have to go out I will plan when less trafffic...I always make sure we have full supplies of toilet paper and I make sure my dogs are potty trained and I cook before I go out..I make sure we eat first this way we wont be cranky and hungry... I check the weather and I train my son to drive smoothly so my life will be more happy. Even when I stay in hotel I make sure I can see the sunset etc etc..yes yes I am crazy but in the end I am at peace. I cannot go out unless I plan carefully...when I let things go as is I find more chaos.


  32. Rosette:

    anyway with sunglasses my oldest sun has better taste than Cory Hart sun glasses..... Cory Hart better off to wear one of those safety glasses...even the safety glasses looks better..omg!


  33. Rosette:

    oh my last peeve ...after 11 years I don't wash the floor..the minute I wash the floor with anti bacterial soap my husbanad walks with his shoes..of all the time when I finally wash the floor he walk with shoes...reason why I relax the minute I clean darn it....I use to wonder why my mom made me wash floor every weekend so as soon as I have my house I wait 11 years to wash what happen!

    i get peeved with all those drivers who back into angled parking stalls. how many times have i had to wait for some fool to do the forward-reverse-forward-reverse deal when trying to back into one of these stalls. hello? the stalls are angled so you can easily drive right in, doofus! plus now that they parked that way, when they leave they turn into the way of cars adjacent to them that are backing out. i've had several close calls b/c of this.

  37. skycastles:

    @Ed - Oddly enough, these office pet peeves are embodied by just a select few people. It's like a concentrated version or something. This makes it even more irking I think :)
