calling a bowl a “soup plate”!
calling zuchinni “squash”! there are many different kinds of squash, including butternut, spaghetti, eggplant, zuchinni, acorn.July 27, 2009 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #997245oomisParticipant
I am not diabetic, but I prefer Diet Coke (not Diet Pepsi, ever!) because it has just the right amount of sweetness.
A pet peeve of mine is when people are hypercritical of other people’s actions, when in fact they are guilty of doing the very same thing but are not mevinim on themselves.July 27, 2009 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #997246mazal77Participant
I also like to drink Diet Soda when I have a slice of pizza (mind you, just a slice). I am not overweight, but I do like to watch my sugar because of family history of diabetes. So like Ames said “keep your on your own plate!” and don’t judge people.July 28, 2009 1:35 am at 1:35 am #997247

are these just Monsey issues or does these things happen elsewhere:
1) you stop for a stop sign or red light and the hitchhiker on the corner thinks you are stopping for him so he tries to open the door and hop in.
2) you’re driving down the street and:
a) the young fellow walking in the street next to the sidewalk turns around and starts walking into the street to stop you.
b) the 2 or 3 young ladies walking next to each other in the street next to the sidewalk
3) the person who decides that he can go around you over the double yellow line because you slowed down to avoid hitting the people in scenarios 2a and b above.July 28, 2009 1:57 am at 1:57 am #997249FunnyBunnyMember
I hate reading books that have countless careless typos on every page especially since i’m a grammar nudnik.
Just wanted to point out that “i’m” should be capitalized. Not that it bothers me or anything. 26July 28, 2009 2:06 am at 2:06 am #997250FunnyBunnyMember
I’m sorry. (notice the capitalization?) By the way, I did mention that I hate reading books like that, not forums in the CR. Emails, chatting and the like are okay.July 28, 2009 3:20 am at 3:20 am #997251

I get very annoyed at people who double or triple park, or those who block off the road while everybody else just sits there in their cars!

Nameless: “dirty dishes which pile up in a sink(ugh!, why cant one just rinse out the dish directly after using it?”
I was going to write that right before I saw your post! I mean for heaven’s sake, if you don’t have time to wash it, put it in a basic and store it under the sink. There is no reason that I have to get pickle juice and macaroni on my fingers every time I try to wash my hands in your sink. And it stinks! And there is macaroni and pickle pieces clogging your sink!July 28, 2009 4:28 am at 4:28 am #997257

If only you were that quick with my other posts, agent 26.
Puhleaze. I was quick. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean I didn’t moderate it. 26July 29, 2009 2:42 am at 2:42 am #997265
I can add 4th point to my post above – naturally as a mod, I could just edit it, but then you wouldn’t see it…
4. the driver, behind a stopped car, that doesn’t want to wait for the driver in front to make a left turn (they were stopped because another driver was approaching from the opposite direction) so they pull into the wrong lane of traffic to pass the vehicle that is waiting to turn. I almost got hit head on with that maneuver today. B’H nothing happened!July 29, 2009 3:24 am at 3:24 am #997266kapustaParticipant
Mod, thats part of a category, where people say/do stupid things.
well then I guess you should be thankful that my pet peeve is about other drivers and not about users that tell mods that they have posted things in the wrong category… :o)July 29, 2009 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #997267cherrybimParticipant
I don’t mind when someone passes me so that he can reach the red light ahead of me; but what annoys me is when someone quickly cuts me off and then proceeds to drive at a snails pace in front of me.July 29, 2009 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #997269
-people who reak like sweat!
-bad breath/people who never brush their teeth!
-people who are always negative!
-people who live crisis to crisis-cause they themself make everything into a crisis!
-people who drive while talking on a cellphone, an accident waiting to happen!
-when your having a long back & forth texting conversation with some, then when you decide to call them to explain something, they don’t answer their phone! & you know that the phone is on them!
-when someone doesn’t properly thank you for something that you’ve done for them!
-people who take the serving fork/spoon & use it as their own utensils! you’re hitting a little to close to home on that one. YW Moderator-72
-people who borrow items & don’t return them(not a cup of sugar or eggs-real things!)

I have decided that my biggest pet peeve is thoughtlessness in any form.July 30, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #997272
another Mod pet peeve…
A user opens up a thread and asks what has all the appearances of a legitimate question. People give advice and instead of acknowledging the advice, the OP posts multiple answers to the question under a different user name… maybe the OP just has too much time on his hands…July 30, 2009 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #997273
and when a new member opens up a new thread, posts once & never follows up in that thread again!(or ever again in the CR) even when that thread gain popularity!July 30, 2009 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #997275SJSinNYCMember
Mod72 – that really happens? Why ask a question if you don’t want other people’s opinions?
YES. YW Moderator-72July 30, 2009 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #997276

load their kids (infants) into their cars from the traffic side.
Dont wash their hands after changing a diaper. (or using the bathroom)
Borrow/use something and dont return it in the same condition.

Jewish antisemites(boy do I loath them)
People who interfere into the lives of members in their family and then say , ‘Well I just mean it for the best’ (yuck)
The typical Mother in law who comes into her daughter- in -law’s house and does the
‘white glove inspection’ (I know of a case)

mod 72 – About those hitchhikers in Monsey, the part I can’t stand is when someone is letting off his hitch in middle of a busy road.. like on 306 bet. Phyllis Terr and YSV-and so blocks traffic all the way back, while the guy merrily takes his time getting out of the vehicle
yes… that too…August 2, 2009 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #997280jphoneMember
. Those who peer down the subway tracks every 5 seconds to check if the train is coming. It wont come any faster if you keep looking for it. It only makes you more antsy and drives everyone else crazy. Tip: Subway trains make lots of noise. Sit down with a sefer and when you hear rumbling get up to the platform.
. Those who drop mail into the mailbox and then proceed to open and slam closed the “door” 5 or 6 times creating a racket. Gravity works, even in a mailbox. It will fall into the box. all you accomplish is give everyone a headache.
. People who walk into a shul that davens Nusach Ashkenaz, insist on davening for the Amud in their Nusach which is different (or vice versa). Forget the halachic aspect for a moment, its just rude.
. People who have cellphone conversations where everyone around is an unwilling party to the conversation. I dont care that Chani just looooves those shoes she just picked up, or that Shlomie is going on a 6th date with Shevy tonight. Keep your conversations to yourself.
. People whose Bluetooth devices are hidden (under a shaitel, hat etc..) and who are apparantly speaking to you and when you respond, ignore you because they are NOT talking to you.August 2, 2009 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #997281Mrs. BeautifulMember

It simply annoys me when people ask me “How are you?” and don’t wait to hear my response. If it’s protocol or wanting to be courteous either take your time to listen to my honest response, or just say ” Hi! ” and go your merry way!August 4, 2009 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #997292Dr. PepperParticipant

When people have food in between their teeth. So ungroomed! Didnt they ever hear of dental floss??
When you are trying on an item of clothing in a store (whether its a hat for a man or for a woman, or a dress etc.) and the other shoppers have to put in their ‘2 cents’
When those who notice you are afraid of dogs start giving you a whole speech about how ‘people are more dangerous than animals’
People who take advantage of others who just can say ‘no’.August 4, 2009 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #997295
re what happens in clothing stores, when people ask you your opinion, if something is tznius or not. What may not be tznius for you may be acceptable for the other person! I hate when people ask me such questions.August 4, 2009 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #997297

4. someone saying the excellent pshat I thought of, but didn’t say
5. realizing that the microwaveable bowl I just used isn’t
