I can't stand being barked at by my neighbor's dog each and every time I step into my OWN back yard.

Beach Boys fans who have nothing good to say about the Beach Boys. That annoys me. But I'm a sucker for punishment, and I continue to come to this site.  Shocked

Just look who's back in these corners - john k! Smiley That's stupid warning, I agree. We should not forget old topics; there's some really good stuff that can cause further attention by the newbies et al.

This isn't so much a pet peeve as it is a rant, but the other day when I was horribly sick (i.e. really high fever, didn't move from my bed for the entire day, nausea), my roommate was more or less complaining to my other roommates (the two that live in the second room) that she was worried she was gonna get sick and then get her boyfriend sick... Like I'm sorry but it's not like I can help it?

And then she ended up getting sick, although she wasn't nearly as bedridden as I was. She commented that she can tolerate pain well and I thought, but didn't say out loud, I don't think a fever and the need to throw up are things that you can just "shake off." I actually had it really bad and she made me feel like I was a wimp or something. I already have a short, small build and people always assume I'm weak, so this really bothered me. She then went on to explain how she ONLY ever gets sick if the person she's rooming with gets sick..... Yeah.

My roommates and I definitely agree that she has some kind of superiority complex. She's always one-upping us, apparently including when it comes to getting sick. Anyway, that's my rant.

Gravel truck speeding down the highway, spewing gravel/other projectiles all over. Sign on back of the truck Shrug - "not responsible for cracked windshields." Others give a distance to remain in back of truck - one said 300 feet! Why aren't they made to secure the tarp (if they have that) over their load?
Big peeve as I've had to completely replace my windshield 3 times in the last 10 years, and am not sure if my present dinged up windshield will pass muster when the annual inspection takes place next month.

Ya know what bugs me?  People who use the word "coin" (a singular noun) when they're talking about money (a plural).  It makes no sense to me.  I dig a quarter out of my pocket; I have a coin.  I dig out another quarter; now I have two coins.  Then some knucklehead informs me "Dude, you got a lot of coin there!" 

Apparently, talking about "coin" doesn't even have to involve actual coins.  "Dude, did you see what he's driving?  He obviously makes a lot of coin!"

Why not just say "money" or "cash" or "moola"?

I used to regularly visit a music board where one particular poster's favorite phrase was "coin of the rhelm".  It got annoying after the first 20 times.  Who did he think he was?  King Bob?  It's money!  Just say money!

MONEY!

As an ecology major and someone who has to get up for work in the morning, having your roommate take a 30-minute long shower in the only bathroom in your apartment is sort of annoying.

Also, people who don't ask how you are after you ask them.

I knew someone like that. Every time I talked to her, I would ask how her day was. She would answer my question, and then she would fall silent. It was so bizarre!

I ended up asking her out on the last day of the semester--she said yes--and then I never talked to her again.

Well, she wasn't home when I went to sleep (she has a boyfriend), so I didn't expect her to be there that early in the morning. Plus we have our schedules on a bulletin board so everyone knows when people have class/work... and her class is later than my work.
This doesn't happen often, it just annoyed me today because... it happened. But yeah, this usually isn't an issue, at least hopefully it won't be.
Also, I don't really want to wake up earlier than 6:30 in the first place... lol
And on top of that, that long in the shower is too much water. That happens a lot.
Sorry that got kind of heated. Not directed towards you. Tongue

lol, why did you ask her out then? Do you like the mysterious type?   Roll Eyes
but yeah, it's weird. I guess I do that when I'm like really tired or moody, but usually it's just like, common courtesy to ask back, yknow?

I don't get it - you must stand in line to wash & have this stupid schedule, yet students choose to live in strange place & say it's fun to mix in with peers? Ha. Now that's funny. HELLO? Doesn't EVERYbody like comfort? Why would ANYone deliberately move to campus/hostel/what it's called I don't care to share room with some stranger(s)? Bizarre.

Some schools require that you live on campus some of the time; dorms are normally much cheaper than apartments and most college students even if they work full-time don't make a whole lot of money. You do what you gotta do.

How about staying with fam, then? Frankly, I don't see anything bad in living with fam. Some people ridicule it, I think they should respect instead. If you live in a city where you go to college or uni, same place where you went to school, why not stay with fam, then? I don't get students' need for so-called Air Quotes freedom. As if you can't be free IN the house. It's cheap. If smb. has conscience living with aunt or some distant relative & wants to pay - it's easier to make a deal with them than total strangers, albeit your age. To divide the rent cost etc. Win-win.

I think a lot of people who go to college in the same town where their family lives do live at home. But if you get into a better college that's not near your family, it often makes sense to deal with the living conditions for the sake of the education. Or, if you're like me, you choose a college in a city because you're sick of living in a small(ish) town. In my case, I think I chose a lesser education for the sake of leaving the town behind.

I lived with cows, village resident. There isn't sight of college & university. Thus, moving to city was no-brainer. Btw, I see people say "college" in the U.S. Here, "college" is 3 yrs; it isn't higher education. Do you, yankees, differ in that dept & college lasts 5 yrs, i.e. "higher education"?

College is "higher education" here. You finish high school at 17-18. Many people then go to college (some go later; some don't go). Full-time college can be two years (associate's degree) or four years (bachelor's degree) standard. Of course if you go part time it may take longer. If you really cram it can be shorter.
If you go for more school, it's an "advanced degree" - either a master's, a Ph.D. or a professional degree (like JD for lawyers or MD for doctors). 
Some colleges are stand-alone institutions that do not offer advanced degrees. If a college is part of an institution that does offer advanced degrees, the institution is called a university.
