Stupid Pet Peeves

Whenever I am watching a basketball game and hear "that will get the crowd going" or something in that sense. Like you need to be entertained to make you cheer for your team. I grew up following mostly european soccer where it's obvious that you support your team during the match no matter how they play and even more when they're losing.

Okay this one is up there with the stupidest pet peeves I have but here it goes.

So I like sausage McMuffins. Not Sausage and egg, just the plain sausage with cheese and a muffin. Sometimes I make them at home with those frozen sausage patties, some muffins and cheese. But sometimes I buy frozen sausage biscuits or whatever to save some time. Thing is you can buy a sausage biscuit with no cheese or you can buy a sausage egg and cheese biscuit. Sometimes I buy the sausage egg and cheese ones and then take the frozen egg puck off and throw it away and sometimes I also buy sliced cheese and put that on after it's cooked. These do not cook well at all with egg in them. The egg stays frozen well after the sausage is turned to leather.

So that's it. I just wish they made a frozen sausage and cheese biscuit. So yeah, it's a pretty big deal.

Just make a bunch and wrap them in paper and throws them in a tupperware container and freeze them. Same with breakfast burritos (these warm up fine w eggs). They stay good for about a month until they don't warm up as well.

Frozen egg pucks are always awful. At Mcds I always ask for a fresh egg instead of the nasty premade and warmed scrambled squares. Store bought frozen rice based entrees are also awful.

People who brag about their state's unpredictable weather. I've lived in 7 states so far and in every state there are people who think they have the craziest weather. "That Indiana weather, never know what you are going to get. One day it's nice, the next day it's rainy. " Uh, that's just called weather.
Lol yep.

In at least 3 different places I have lived, Washington State, Reno NV and now California, the locals told us exactly the same thing "one thing about living in X, if you don't like the weather just wait 5 minutes". Hilarious.

Everyone wants to feel like the place they live is special. I guess that's one way to do it.

This is the american way.

1. Get on the freeway.
2. Go as far left as possible.
3. Stay there until 1/4 mile before your exit - getting pissed off at everyone that comes up behind you and flashes their lights then passed you on the right with the audacity to actually *gasp* get in front of you!
4. Once you see your actual exit off-ramp, force your way through traffic to get off barely in time.
5....
6. Profit

So the day after I made that post we drove from Vegas to Long Beach for our cruise. Yesterday we drove the whole way home. How in the hell do people actually drive in SoCal everyday? 10:00 on a Saturday morning and over an hour long delay? And even better…no wrecks or anything. Just an hour to go 6 or 7 miles. On I15. WTF?!?
And the entire way until we hit Nevada we had assholes going under the speed limit in the left lane. Middle of nowhere California and we couldn’t even hit the speed limit because of these assholes. Holy ****, I couldn’t live there and have to drive in that place. The next time I drive in California will be never if I have anything to say about it.

Yeah what I posted is more true for socal than other place we've lived. Get on the freeway and immediately go as far left as possible then camp there.

And yeah that's pretty standard traffic. I'm 35 miles from work and in the morning, at 5 am, it takes me 45 minutes to an hour to get to work. In the afternoon it's an hour and a half minimum. It sucks.

Such a pet peeve of mine that for a long time i required all glasses you couldn't see through (coffee cups, Tupperware cups, etc) to be washed by hand.

I saw a really stupid youtube video title that said "8 American things that Britain doesn't even have a word for."

Uhhhh.

They can just go ahead and use our word since we both speak English. Am I missing something?

If you clicked on it, then they achieved their goal.

I cannot stand the overwhelming clickbait titles and videos on youtube. I watch a few channels semi-regularly but I am careful to mediate what I watch so I don't reinforce the stupid inadvertently.

And since the stupid generates clicks and therefore money, it will continue apace. We are a lowest common denominator species.
