In our house, the last person to pour soda leaves an ounce on the bottom of the bottle. It does not happen with OJ, not with milk, not with anything else. But for some reason, soda seems to have this phenom.
Also seems to happen with candy. The 1st 95% goes pretty fast, but the last piece or two just lingers. Does’nt happen with dried fruit or nuts or baked goods, though. No idea why, but the chocolate and candy just linger

when people take two or three pieces of kleenex, at one time, to blow their nose, apparently without considering that it costs the Shul money and someone has to go out and buy more kleenexDecember 14, 2010 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #982677yaff80Participant

you are right brisker that is proper derech eretz
on the other hand
sometimes these people are makpid to fulfill the Mitzvah of eating on Shabbos before chatzoz
sometimes they are diabetic
sometimes they have family and guests waiting for them at home
sometimes they are plain ravenous after not having eaten all morning
sometimes the baalai simcha should be more considerate and go directly to Kiddush and shmooze thereDecember 14, 2010 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #982685
mod 80 – Thats with all pet peeves somethings that urk us dont mean they are wrong! (I agree that there may be excuses/reasons)December 14, 2010 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #982686
Go to the bathroom, or move to a corner, where there arent people standing. It goes without saying, NEVER blow your nose when you are talking to someone!
🙁December 14, 2010 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #982687
Thanks Sac, yup, thats what happened to me.December 14, 2010 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #982688
Sac – so if one is learning with his chavrusa he should get up and leave just to blow his nose!?December 14, 2010 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #982689
Thats my pet peeve now too 😀December 14, 2010 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #982690
if i may i think sac just means it should be done discreetly and not “in your face”
if youre sitting with a chavrusa just turn away when you blow your nose
i think thats what she meansDecember 14, 2010 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #982691amichaiParticipant
( I use alot of public transportation.) after a long day, sitting on the ride home , you just wanna close your eyes and relax, and the pelephones start ringing quite loud, or pple themselves speaking very loudly.December 14, 2010 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #982692
Derech eretz kadma LaTorah…..?
Excuse yourself, turn away from the people you are facing, and blow your nose then.(My 6th grade Rebbi made sure that this was ingrained in all of us)December 14, 2010 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #982693
people that dont put away the shuls seforim after using them
that one gets me tooDecember 14, 2010 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #982694
mod 80 – I thought so to untill she said to go to the bathroom to blow!December 14, 2010 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #982695
I dont want to get in to a bittul torah argument but… I would get up and blow my nose.December 14, 2010 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #982696

– if someone constantly clicks their pen, shakes their feet, and whispers to themselves by tests
– when someone sings when I’m trying to study (yes, I know, it shouldn’t bother me but it does :))

When people chew gum loudly and stinks up your car, room etc..December 14, 2010 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #982701chesednameParticipant
as a person who donates the tissues, you’re right that always bothers me
you’re quote “when people take two or three pieces of kleenex, at one time”
what bothers me as well, when mods are posting while there are posts waiting to be approved, or emails to be answered 🙂 lol jokingDecember 14, 2010 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #982702
How about, and I have heard this from both sides, waiting for an answer from the other side after a date if it will continue or not. I know how other people feel so I always give it right away or ask for a little more time if I need to think about it.December 14, 2010 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #982703
That can be annoying, but it has an easy remedy.
After a date I say to the guy something like, “I had a nice time” If he looks nauseous, jk. If he doesnt respond, I know its a no go. I dont have to wait for anyone, and I dont have to feel like an idiot because he can think I was just being polite.December 14, 2010 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #982704
Don’t the guys usually give an answer first?December 14, 2010 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #982705not IMember
I see alot of the threads in teh CR revolve around shidduchim!!December 14, 2010 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #982706the.nurseMember
When people write the word ‘alot’ as one word. It’s 2 words: A lot. I don’t know why this drives me crazy, but it does.
Actually, now that I think about it, a lot of common spelling mistakes irk me…
their vs there vs they’re
your vs you’re
etc…December 14, 2010 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #982707apushatayidParticipant
On the subject of kleenex. Once you use it (even if it IS 3-4 tissues and you throughly irked Mod-80) dont open it up to see whats inside. What are you expecting anyway?December 14, 2010 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #982708
Sac, I actually have done that, and been told the same, with a big smile on her face, and then find out the nxt day that it is a no go.
dunno,yes, but the girl sometimes decides to get back “later”.
If you know that it is a yes, say it!
And that goes with another peeve that I have.
Why do 2 mature(hopefully) people who are ready for marriage, have to play the game of “hard to get”? There are so many shadchannim who tell me when I say this, that this is how it is.December 14, 2010 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #982709
You bet! It’s the hot topic around here 🙂December 14, 2010 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #982710

I definitely agree with that. Why wait?December 14, 2010 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #982714
When people take personal offense when you spell something wrong 😉
LOL. Yea, thats gross.
Thats obnoxious.December 14, 2010 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #982715
Yes, I guess that can be attributed to posters being in the “parsha”(I never really understood why you call it a parsha), or parents of kids in the “parsha”
