    Quoted from ShinyBall:

    The over use of..."that being said"

    Do to the fact that you dislike the phrase “that being said”, I’d like to suggest we have a discussion around writing styles that use far too many unnecessary words. That being said, perhaps we are all guilty of this annoying behavior from time to time.

    I totally hate slow drivers in the fast lane. And I watch my mirror all the time and get the hell out of the way for the occasional car faster then me. Then it pisses me off when the car that passed me is now holding me up for some reason. Look asshole I was cruising at 90, you wanted around, I let you go, now you are doing 82 and holding me up.

    It sucks the area I live has so many businesses with names in other languages.
    It sucks all the foreign country flags flying around here.
    Press one for English.

    So allow me to introduce to you the real Peter Griffin:

    I know right. Like when the restaurant sign that is in some weird language. What the hell is El Pollo Loco even mean. And this other restaurant “El Torito” has a Mexican flag printed on the menu. Should be an American flag on that el torito menu since were in America. Or confederate flag if in Georgia. That damn restaurant with some Asian name. I think it’s called yoshinoya or something, and one that has a Japanese flag called Benihana or something. Didn’t we beat that country in war so we wouldn’t have to see that. Now they’re invading us.

    ... El Pollo Loco....

    The crazy chicken?! Sorry I get excited when I can figure out other languages.

    #158 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    Overuse of exclamation points and other punctuation
    ____________________________________________________

    On a similar note, the overuse of "etc." by reduntantly stringing several in sequence when one "et cetera" (meaning: as so on) suffices.

    The same annoyance is seen constantly in legal writings with "et al." (meaning: and others) when it is incorrectly written as "et als." in a redundant and incorrect effort to create the plural form of an already plural term.

    Rusty pinball leg levelers, on otherwise perfectly usable legs, which are fused in place, as if spot welded by molten lava.

    That’s thelaw for you. He’s a gentleman and a scholar.

    My high school German teacher was quick to point out it should be "Das Wienerschnitzel", not "Der Wienerschnitzel"

    Notice how it is now only "Wienerschnitzel"? The German grammar police must have raised a real stink about it.

    #161 1 year ago

    "Common sense" gun law, and politicians in my state who pass laws not knowing a damn thing about the items they're legislating against. A magazine is not a clip. A telescoping stock allows more control not mass devastation. If it looks evil..it must be apparently.

    Apparently one of the things a bunch of you really hate are pinside rules prohibiting political Discussion and being racist.

    I knew about politics and religion, but when did they throw racism into the mix? Next thing you know they will be outlawing homophobia too.

    Reminds me of a joke a lot of older people have told me.
    When you get old, you can not trust the government or a fart.

    I am now old enough I understand the fart thing they were talking about.

    My German teacher said the same thing. I rebutted saying that Der is the masculine form and fits with the underlying meaning of “Wienerschnitzel”. She gave me detention.

    #168 1 year ago

    Pinball People/Pinsiders that refer to pinball machines as “tables”.

    Hell nah...

    I eat at a “table” and I play a pinball machine.

    My German teacher went on his usual ramblings "That wall went up overnight! And someday it will come down just as fast as they put it up."

    Yeah, right.

    They were called tables long before pinside ever existed.

    #171 1 year ago

    I hate when I decide to speed up when the light turns yellow and the car in front of me decides to stop.

    Or that one cheesehead that calls them "decks". Luckily it hasn't caught on yet.

    Hey O-din, Can you find Vid?

    #176 1 year ago

    People that use a fob to lock their car doors, and the horn beeps. You know you can disarm that so that your lights just flash, right? No? Stoopid!

    #177 1 year ago

    People in the express check out with clearly more than 10 items.

    #178 1 year ago
    Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

    People in the express check out with clearly more than 10 items.

    But because they have 40 cans of the same dog food, they consider it one item.

    Does one twelve pack of beer count?

    The post where somebody ask "what game is better, should I get this or that?" And then list a game that has yet to be released.

    #182 1 year ago
    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Hey O-din, Can you find Vid?

    Sorry, but I don't think I will be visiting Yemen anytime soon.

    Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

    Also, people who apparently think the cashier may possibly let them slide this time, because they wait until they're told what their purchase costs before moving to break out any cash. Then, they'll invariably fumble around for coins to try to make exact change.

    #184 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    Counts as one item.

    Without even a poll

    Did you ever stop to consider that they may be blind?

    Pretty sure that Vid resides in the midwest USA. Yemen wouldn't be able to handle him.

    #188 1 year ago

    The biggest damn thing I have hated my whole life is when I need to go to bed before I am sleepy, and have to get up when I am sleepy.

    #189 1 year ago

    Reality TV shows and frantically looking for the remote to change the channel.

    #190 1 year ago

    Sitting on the phone trying to straighten out with one DirecTV representative what the other screwed up the other day.

    Similar, but not as bad as sitting on the phone half the day with their parent company AT+T

    Sounds painful

    Or how about that Philippines accent chick that answers the phone every time I call any of my different credit cards, paypal, Comcast...she works everywhere?

    Racist bastards that act victimized/bullied when people call them out on their nonsense.

    #195 1 year ago

    I hate clicking on a topic hoping to learn some tricks of shots to make for a good score and it is endless with cliffy stuff and other mods and not one single thing about actual tips for what to aim for to have a great game.

    #196 1 year ago

    Clicking on what is supposed to be the latest post in a long thread and ending up two pages back.

    #197 1 year ago

    I really like Pinside and reading all the stuff and sometimes trying to post something myself just goofing off.
    But I really hate the fact that now I have got to get my ass in bed so I don't feel like crap when I need to get up again.

    I feel your pain....sucks getting old..take me back to 25....so much I can do better now!

    #199 1 year ago

    At 57 and having stayed up most all night including at one point in time starting this thread, I'm still feeling pretty darn good.

    Of course I haven't really accomplished anything today and it was the leaf blower's day off...
