    This isn't meant to be a vent fest or anything. I was thinking more along the lines of minor perturbences :confused: And poking fun at things we can't change; So let's keep it mellow;).

    1. .22lr bricks costing more then $30 (I'm past them being $6.99 anymore lol)

    2. Living on the wrong side of the border from the guy who just posted something you want but they won't deal with out of state sales.

    3. Buying something for "the lowest price you've ever seen it", only to see half dozen more sell for less in the next few days.

    Poor vocabulary is a perturbation to me,
    Although often,
    I'm sure,
    It isn't meant to be.

    Seeing a post in the classifieds, and posting a reply only to find out I was seconds behinds someone else....grr

    (This is an awesome forum and I have really enjoyed my interactions with the other members I've met)

    Feels like I lost out on a good deal to a good friend though so it's all gravy:s0115:

    When people come to a forum to ask an honest question and for your trouble, you get snarky responses such as "Google is your friend" or "there are already 100 threads on this topic". Honestly, I've been told that myself and it irritates me because I start with Google as well as the search function on the site before I ever ask a question. Sometimes I just want to get direct opinions from folks regarding my particular question. I don't respond that way to people when they ask a question, I'd love to see others be kind and do the same.

    You could post "Free Cases of Beer" and get responses like, "I'll only take it if it's my brand, or, Can you deliver it across town tonight"

    I am "griped" that I can turn on KGON once every ten years and hear the same d*&n songs that I heard them play in the 70's. Nostalgia is fun for about the first song then.... guess it wears off.
    But the DJ's must be outoftheirminds. Playing the same stuff all day every day for decades.

    People who drive a Toyota Prius 40 mph in a 50 mph zone, then when a passing lane finally comes up, they do 70 mph as you try to pass them.

    OH MAN! No kidding! We watch most every night if we're home and I complain constantly about that, hate those people. (Why do I watch?)

    Major gripe is seemingly intelligent people on discussion forums using the term "I COULD CARE LESS" Instead of the proper "I couldn't care less".
