    Angry OFF TOPIC - Extreme Peeves

    Yesterday, I was sitting in my favorite restaurant preparing to begin eating my lunch, when an inconsiderate slob, at the table next to mine, loudly blew his nose into his handkerchief. After visually examining the contents, he put the handkerchief back into his pocket. (My murder trial will begin next month.)

    Has anything that sickening ever happened to you? What are your extreme peeves?

    Regards,

    Larry

    Agreed, but I would choose music every time over some Neanderthal blowing his nose.

    Would you rather see him dripping into his coffee?

    No...I would rather see him do the polite and considerate thing and go into the restroom or outside to blow his nose.

    I agree.

    I always get annoyed at people who talk SO LOUD when they're on their cell phone.

    ... Like as if I need to hear their stupid conversation.

    I had mine on vibrate and in my front pocket until I found myself making my own "ringtones" sounds when someone called. Now I have a belt clip (still on vibrate though).

    People who cough, sniffle, shuffle and make other unnecessary noises during classical concerts.

    Though I have to mention, that last weekend I attended a Vancouver (Washington, not BC) Symphony Orchestra concert, and the audience was the most quiet and respectful that I have ever had the pleasure to join. AND, they applauded the modern piece (Bacchus, The Wind in the Trees, 2003) more enthusiastically than the "classics".
