It's a problem, too, when you must devote a certain portion of the day to making sure they're taken care of.
But at the same time, I think it'd be foul of me to complain too much.
More of a pet peeve...

Nothing to do with others, really. Mostly myself!
... You're always left wondering if you can do more, aren't you?..
At least, that's how I've been feeling, lately.

my pet peeve right now is just how bad adele dazeem's rendition of defying gravity was in the halloween wicked special because i guess stripping all of the righteous power out of a song all about realizing one's righteous power is a choice to make

Can I confess that the title of this thread, compared with the much higher quality threads in the same subforum, peeves me?

Hey, this is, what, the fifth or six different version of this thread? We used up the good titles.

eventually all the thread titles will just be things like "Annoyances" with posts like "Pain."

I personally do my best to make thread title obtuse and dumb enough for people to miss basic informational titles.

That's how we ended up with two Transformers threads that don't have "Transformers" in their titles.

two transformers threads ≠ two music threads

and Roger is the only person I'll let try to argue otherwise

Having the financial name of your company be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from your trade name/storefront/Kickstarter/whatever and NOT MENTIONING THIS ANYWHERE.

I don't know about anyone else, but my first reaction to completely unrecognized charges on my credit card is not "Hey I have never seen this name before, ever... yeah I'm sure it's fine."

I mean, the only reason I even figured it out at all (it was the Trogdor Kickstarter) is because I only have four recent credit card charges anyway, so I was able to make the connection of "Hey wasn't there that game thing? They did send out an email that they'd be billing for shipping soon and this kind of looks close after currency conversion? I guess I can check." and because the payment company had some nerdy name like Funny Junk Stuff or whatever it was, so I didn't immediately jump to the conclusion that it was a mistaken or fraudulent charge.

But even then the damn payment company name only appears buried in the FAQ and only after you open the payment subsection. :tilt:

Regulation enforcement that goes against the intent.

TL;DRBIDIFBTL (too long; didn't read because I deleted it for being too long): On a job site we lock up all the inspected fire extinguishers when not in use, one company likes to leave their own extinguisher out at all times just in case. When there was no work on site the FDNY inspected it and declared the work site unsafe because the extinguisher didn't have proper inspection, despite being shown the fully inspected extinguishers in storage, because no one was working.
