    The personal and very hurtful attacks here on the CR, anonymity does not excuse it.

    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

    GRRRR!

    people that are not smart, but are ambitious.

    #982676

    on the subject

    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 kleenex

    Jewish people acting as though they own the world especially in front of non-Jews.

    Any other form of Chillul Hashem.

    #982678

    more on the subject

    when someone takes a public box of kleenex to use as their personal shtender, necessitating anyone who wants some kleenex to walk further away or to disturb the shtender guy.

    #982683

    People that like talking about Kleenex;)

    When the girl and her parents are not on the same page, causing the shidduch to be broken off….

    #982684

    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 there

    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!

    Thats my pet peeve now too 😀

    #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 means

    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)

    I dont want to get in to a bittul torah argument but… I would get up and blow my nose.

    #982696

    I think people just need to use basic decency, and sometimes think, “would I like it if someone else would do this to me ect…”?

    Some more pet peeves…

    – creaking floorboards

    – 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 “talk to you” but text away the whole time

    Wow, I never realized how many things annoy me! I gotta start working on this!

    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 joking

    #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.

    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.

    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…

    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?

    #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.

    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”
