    Speaking of that, the use of "randomly" to mean "equally likely outcomes".

    My daughter had a soccer tournament in Mesquite last weekend. Every team we played was based in Salt Lake or Davis County. So we drove around 5 hours each way for her to play teams we could have played at home.

    I helped my daughter submit on-line application to give a University Graduation commencement address which she qualified for because of GPA and other honors. We took great care in creating the best speech we could. She finally submitted it and immediately got an auto response that said, "Thank you for your commencement address application. You should here back soon."

    I've got a purple lump nearly the size of a baseball just above my hip, hurts like hell. Tripped and fell on an end table, it won pretty convincingly.

    Is it really considered a pet peeve if you cause the problem yourself? Regardless, hope you get well soon. Sounds painful.

    Every time I hear the name Post Malone I think they are talking about the current Jazz team.

    Perhaps this isn't a pet peeve either since thinking about the current team doesn't really bug me.

    When people use attenders rather than attendees.

    ha ha, maybe that response came from my husband - he has a notorious (to me at least) talent for stuff like this - I was chuckling as I read your post and he asked me what I was laughing at so I showed him. He read it thru and looked at me and said "So, what's so funny about this?" After he read it two more times, he figured it out.

    and to Wes's comment about attenders vs. attendees - another confusion, I have a colleague who is always writing "attendance" when she means "attendants"

    It's probably a ******** (male gonad) . Nothing to worry about.


    Edit: now that I think about it I guess it could just as likely be a female gonad. Good luck with that.

    Tripped in the damn hotel room, went down like a sack of *****.

    In other irritating pet peeves, cab drivers who first try to take you the long way, then once you tell them not to drive 15 to 20ks under the speed limit. Thieving useless bastards

    Why do people write "F" like "7" with a line through it. I know it can be cultural or archaic but any more it's just confusing especially for people they haven't seen it before.
