Pet Peeves

Well, I don't live in India, and I don't like nose rings.  :icon_smile:   That said, if the waitress has one and gives me good service she'll get a nice tip.  Even if she doesn't give good service, she would get a decent tip because we then leave a tract - and we aren't going to stiff a tip and leave a tract at the same time.  Bad witness, that!

 

My biggest pet peeve?  The fact that I don't have one. I want a dog so badly.  A beagle pup.  That I can name Liberty.  Yes, then I wouldn't have a peeve anymore, I would have a pet.  :clapping:

Well HC, if you do indeed get your wish and get a beagle pup, Liberty is the perfect name for it.  Beagles are hounds and LOVE to run, and will ALWAYS be seeking Liberty to go on the hunt.  You will have to watch him/her like a hawk or you will be running up and down your neighborhood continually trying to coral your dog again.  Speaking from experience...

Pet peeve:  People who come to a complete stop before turning off a road into a driveway or parking lot and then proceed at like 1/2 mile per hour as if the g forces from the turn will cause their brains to roll out of their heads...on second thought...maybe it would.

When it comes to tipping I have my base amount I will tip, and the appearance of the waitress doesn't matter. If get exceptional service, or sometimes if the waitress is simply sincerely friendly and helpful, I'll leave a bigger tip.

 

I've a pet peeve regarding drivers as well; it's those at an intersection that wait until you get close to them, then they pull out in front of you like they are in a big hurry, but then they drive slowly down the road so you have use the brake to keep from hitting them.

HC, I grew up always having a beagle and lab, outdoors only. Beagle pups are the cutest! But what puppy isn't! I hope you get your puppy too!


We had labs when our son was growing up. Shepherds (part dOBerman) when I was young. There's just something about a beagle...my mom wants mr to bring my beagle (if I get one) to her house due to one of her pet peeves: rabbits everywhere. :-D

That is so sweet, your mom wanting to introduce your beagle to heaven.  Rabbits everywhere is indeed heaven to a "hunting in their blood" beagle.

I grew up with beagles at home from my earliest memories into my teens. We used to do a lot of hunting. Buck was a great rabbit hunting beagle. When he started getting old and going blind we got a pair of beagle siblings (brother and sister). The sister would get in a hurry and overrun the trail and lose it while the brother was on the slow side. Buck helped the brother along and the sister learned to run to Buck when she lost the trail so she could pick it back up again because even nearly blind Buck could still track the rabbits.

oh my, if only I knew, someone offered us one for free.  Our landlord wont let us have one.  Plus I hate getting attached and then having it get hit or die on you can be emotional.

Don't get me wrong HC, I loved my beagle (though I will most likely not seek another one) only because they are high maintenance and tend to have "selective hearing" and pay NO attention to you calling their name; about as much as a cat does.  The only thing my cat responds to is the sound of the can opener...

heheheh. I know they are full of life.  But that's all part of the challenge. We did have a beagle when I was quite young.  And he was really well behaved for us.  But we did have a big fenced-in yard. 

 

AVBB - that is too bad!  

 

A peeve I have about pets is that they can be so expensive to buy.  Bleeding heart ads talk about animals needing good homes, but it costs almost as much to buy one as it does to keep it in dog food for a number of years.

I went to a No-kill animal shelter today to sign my dog up to get spayed. Only $80 versus a vet at least $150. While I was there I noticed room after room of cats and just a few dogs in cages, I asked the lady what the percentage of dogs and cats and astonished to find it's about 20% dogs and 80% cats! I thought  it would've balance the opposite. Just interesting info for my area to me.

 

My dad was hunter of anything in animal kingdom and we usually always had 2 or 3 beagles and a lab. We lost one or two beagles who just got on trail of something (we lived in country) and never found their way home. Labs are great family dogs but they are like a puppy until about 2 years old!

Be thankful you don't want one of my sisters dogs.  She is a nationally renowned breeder and dog show participant of Bernese Mountain Dogs.  She owns the current National Champion.  Her pups sell between $5,000 and $10,000  each!

Out of likes, but loved the pupholder! Wow! I didn't even know dogs could be worth that much, that's crazy! She could have $80,000 on that bench! Unbelievable!

 

Of those pictured, only one (the one looking away) was a "show quality" 10k dog.  The rest were bargains bought only for their impeccable blood lines.   Don't ask me what makes one show quality.

Those Baptist pastors who denounce "prosperity gospel preachers" while themselves preach a similar message when it comes to giving. There are some of our pastors who preach if you tithe, God will give you a blessing, and if you give more on top of your tithe God will bless you even more. If you want to reap God's blessings, especially financial blessings you must tithe and then give extra.

 

Then after appealing to the greed portion of the flesh, they play upon the fear, telling the congregation if they don't at least give that tithe, God will cause the husband to get sick so he can't work, God will send a storm that will damage their home or car.

 

If a pastor is making sure his congregation is saved and growing in Christ, there should be no need to have constant sermons on giving because out of a heart of love the congregation will be giving abundantly already.

 

As Bro. Garry said in effect in another thread, giving oneself fully to following the Lord leads one to give in full measure too; putting your treasure where your heart is.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
