Going to sleep on the boat, cold and windy night. Waking up to all the water in the creek being blown out. Flybridge almost at dock level...having to climb up and onto dock to get off!

And another. When folks drop their cars off and ask me to thoroughly road test for a symptom.

And the fuel tank is on "E"! Down right wrong and inconsiderate! :evil:

im laughing so hard i cant think.

the same a$$ole that does 25 in the 35 on miller store rd, then does 50 on the 25 down burton station where cops always sit, yet i havent seen him get caught, yet while i have twice.

people playing the lottery (100$) worth of 1$ tickets while there are 15 people in line at miller mart. and then want there last weeks tickets checked as if the couldnt read the newspaper or have the internet, when i can see the iphone in their hand.

people that pump gas and then go into the store to buy food instead of pulling into a parking space.

DMV for letting anyone over 70 drive

and that everyday customer that smashes the front of their car and wants you to polish the baby car seat scratches off their roof and trunk. who the heck puts their baby on the roof of the car so they can open a door? alot trust me.

i have tons, i really laughed when i read the gym, equipment one and the moderators, lol. yall can add me as one of your peeves to LOL
