Oh, just thought of another one:

People that think it's a good idea to breed dogs. I'm not talking about official dog breeders. I think those are okay, but should be regulated with license requirements. For example, there can only be 6 black lab breeders in Wisconsin (or something along those lines.) Each breed would have a limit on the number of people that can breed them. Anybody caught breeding dogs without a license would have their animals confiscated and fined an exorbitant amount. Maybe even require all dogs to be fixed unless the owner has a breeder license. There are just too many unwanted animals out there already for people to be creating more Sad

I've heard (and seen) too many people have conversations along these lines:
Person A: My dogs not fixed.
Person B: Mine isn't either.
Person A: We should breed them, they would make cute puppies!
Person B: Okay!


Okay, my rant is over now.

All it says in a cache page is "Bring along a pen or pencil"

That's it???

No cache description? No container type? No hint? I mean..C'mon!

Oddly enough, the phrase pet peeves. We should not be keeping these things as pets. They're pests. They could spread disease. Also, tuneless whistlers, personal space violators.

My daughter's boyfriend just got a job at a pet store and he can't get an employee discount on Peeves until he passes probation...

What does the media consider important news?

North and South Korea are going at it, but the news shows lead off with the breaking news that Kate and Wills have set a wedding date. Mad Confused Rolling Eyes

Those little spring things that put pressure on the toilet rolls at public places...

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people right bad words on the cache paper. People don't think about how old other cachers might be. I like to bring my son and daughter along sometimes and I hate seeing someone take a fun hobby and messing it up for the rest of us. I also hate it when people drive to slow on the interstate.

The overhead announcements at kwik trip stores "pump one is ready and we have cinnamon roles for 4.99"

Thanks, that was my idea. I was the first Kwik Trip manager to use overhead announcements. Acknowledging the customer at the pump cuts drive-offs dramatically.

I hate that as well. If I wave my credit card at them when I get out of the car will they promise not make the announcement. Otherwise may I should start a different type of drive off. If they make the announcement I get into my car and leave without pumping any gas. Laughing

This is just a public service announcement for those of you who might be considering getting pet peeves for others at Christmas...

Please wait until the holidays are over! All of the hustle bustle and unusual activity going on in a household at this time of year is not a good environment to be introducing new pets (including peeves) into a household. Why not give a gift certificate to be used sometime in January for the recipient to pick out a pet of his or her choosing? Maybe add a toy or some other item the new pet might use along with your certificate.

If you cannot give any peeves new homes for the coming year, please consider a monetary gift or a gift of food or bedding to your local pet peeves shelter to make the holidays just a bit brighter for those lonely homeless pet peeves out there. May all the peeves get adopted by loving families in 2011!

Pop up and slider ad's on the internet.. no matter what it seems someone finds a way around all the best "blocker" programs.

Hate getting to a page, start reading the article and all of a sudden it starts sliding down the page... so you scroll down to catch up and then a few seconds later it starts sliding back up!

Or you mouse over some link and it pops up a small add even with pop up blocker(s) on...

#$^#@$^#$^@!! "active" content... blech...

How about the ads where the person walks onto your screen and starts talking to you?
