    My local people do not post on the local CL, but on the Chicago CL.

    Yes, I know why they do it, but it is still annoying.

    ...thread titles aren't complete.

    #3 7 years ago

    The middle of my sentence interrupts the beginning of someone else's...

    #4 7 years ago

    It could also be an invitation to fill in the blank with your own annoying thought. Hence the colon. Which you guys most certainly figured out. Cheers!

    #5 7 years ago

    ....The shipping costs too much for a pin to go from one coast to another.

    #6 7 years ago

    ....I don't capitalize the beginning of a sentence.

    #7 7 years ago

    ...Gary and Jack won't hug it out.

    #8 7 years ago
    Quoted from maddog14:

    ...People talk about their colons.

    #9 7 years ago

    ....When people post there game for sale in the thread titles and dont put there general location and you have to click on it and search through the ad that tells you all about the game and then MAYBE it will say where there located. Or worse yet I have to go into there profile page and hopefully find it there. Ugh !!

    O' and dont get me started on the people that post a game for sale without a price. ARGH !!

    You don't like playing "Guess the price, location and condition" game? It's one of my favorites.

    #11 7 years ago

    ...as soon as I decide I really want a specific pin, it becomes the "in pin" of the moment and everyone wants one!

    #12 7 years ago

    I do put Northwest Indiana but it posts is Chicago.

    I figured that was your Fun House, but I guess not

    Quoted from ssbodyman:

    Somebody local to me I think. But they are being all mysterious.

    #16 7 years ago

    How about when you ask someone what they want for the machine and they ask you what do you want to offer. Annoying !

    #17 7 years ago

    My wife says everything is fine when it clearly isn't.

    #18 7 years ago

    .....when someone thinks an unreleased Stern will be the best pin ever.

    #19 7 years ago

    Everyone is so far away from the pin for sale,they post those "four words "describing the frustration of distance!!!!!!!!

    #20 7 years ago

    The name of a herb is used to describe the condition of a pinball machine.

    #21 7 years ago
    Quoted from Skypilot:

    Home Use Only?

    #23 7 years ago

    When you drain your 3rd ball with extra ball lit! Doh....

    #24 7 years ago

    ....when staff at my work send us help desk requests that ask for assistance but do not leave a full name/number/any details of what they are trying to actually do on our database. I guess they think how hard can it be to identify them when we have a few thousand employees working around the state?

    This is the whine thread now isn't it?

    #25 7 years ago

    someone hijacks your FS Thread

    #26 7 years ago

    ....when someone has to chime in on a FS thread with "10k by Christmas ". It's getting old folks. Really.

    #27 7 years ago

    ... otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals don't know or care about the difference between "your" and "you're;" or "there," "their" and "they're;" or "than" and "then;" or "its" and "it's;" or "lose" and "loose;" or "to" and "too;" or even "are" and "our;" etc! (Not "ect!")

    #28 7 years ago

    there's an ad on chicago CL currently that lists "pinball", no description at all. It's a garage sale and it's local, so I'm just going to show up tomorrow morning before work to see what it is (even if I don't buy it, the curiosity will kill me if I don't take a look).

    #29 7 years ago

    Four player game, all four guys huddled around the machine watching a great ball being played, several beers down, many more to go, and someone lets an SBD go. Everyone but the poor SOB playing the ball scatters.

    #30 7 years ago

    ...When Metallica is rated the #1 pin and 3 models haven't even been released yet !

    #31 7 years ago

    ... when people see my pins for the first time & say "aren't those things expensive?" and look at me like I'm stupid.
    (Yet financing 30k over ten years for their new "insert nonessential toy" is not only completely normal... it is to be bragged about.)

    #32 7 years ago

    When people use the word "said" to point out something they are talking about when its obvious what they are talking about.. Example *said game"

    #33 7 years ago
    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    ^^^ This.

    #34 7 years ago

    When people care about rankings.

    #35 7 years ago
    Quoted from Pinballerchef:

    Did that start when I was selling my CC? I hadn't noticed it before.

    ...you're all out of Shasta.

    #37 7 years ago

    when people start a thread about annoying things.

    Your right. Their are people that our annoying when they try to make a point, and they use improper English. They loose all credibility because their to fast when there typing and they're point is lost because people are focusing on the grammar and not the message. Its are responsibility two point this out before it drives people crazy.

    Sorry, couldn't help myself

    someone puts a bunch of words up as above that is clearly off topic and has nothing to do with pinball and also gets karma points for it.

    When you spend a good length of time cleaning and or fixing a machine, put the glass back/lock bar on and close the coin door to realize you forgot to clean the rubber on your flippers! Which takes all of 10 seconds to wipe off.

    #45 7 years ago

    When people want justification that a pin is an "A-list game." You got it because you like it, isn't that what matters?

    Or you forget to pull out the rag you stuffed in to keep the balls from falling out when you raised the playfield!

    #47 7 years ago

    When you are having a kick-ass game and somebody all of a sudden requires your full attention.

    #48 7 years ago

    you order a burger from a drive thru on the way home and you clearly asked for no cheese and when you get home and open the container and there is gobbs of melted cheese everywhere!

    #49 7 years ago

    when your driving to pick up a good deal and the owner calls and says it just sold

    #50 7 years ago

    When people actually believe that because of the improper use of English an important point is now invalid? You're right, lets focus on the one drop of bird poo on a Ferrari and say, that car now looks like crap!
