Pet Peeve:  I just witnessed my 13 year old grandson reach into the refrigerator and take a swig out of the quart of milk and put it back in!  Have you ever seen a Dilbert cartoon where Alice has to fight "the fist of death"....

 

I trained his parents better than that...looks like some more training is in order.

When first married I had to train my wife in that area. Her mom was sick much of the time and her dad was on the road driving a truck a lot so the kids raised themselves a lot of the time. My wife didn't think anything at all about grabbing the milk, container of orange juice, or any other drinkable, drinking what she wanted right from the container and putting it back in the fridge. Ewww!

Nothing wrong with drinking from a container if only one drinks from that container.

 

I keep water in the fridge that only I drink from and I drink right out of the container.

Pet peeve:  No matter how carefully you put your ear buds into a pocket, when you pull them out to use again, they have mysteriously tied themselves into a knot that would make any sailor or eagle scout proud.

Pet peeve: Parents never thinking their almost 50 year old son (Saved, imbibed into the word of God, Happily married 26 years, and Father of 4 children, all from my one and only wife, mind you!), can make 'wise' decisions.

Pet peeve:  People who disrespect, or think evil of, bachelors who by choice are not seeking any relationships.  So many think that is so weird that there must be something wrong with you, or that your'e a sodomite.  God gifts some people with the ability to be single and not "burn", so that their service to God can be without distractions.  

 

Happily a bachelor,

Dwaine

Amen brother!  I get it also, being a bachelor now for the last 19 years.

 

 1 Corinthians 7:32-33 (KJV

32  But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 
33  But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 

 

Bro. Garry

In His will.  By His power.  For His glory.

Pet peeve:  New cooking utensils that have labels on them using glue that is NOT water soluble, requiring you to wage all out chemical warfare on items you want to eat out of to remove the glue stuck to it.

Pet Peeve:  People who say "like" all the time.  Sometimes "like" 4 times in "like" the same sentence, "like" do you know what I mean it's "like" really annoying.

​Like, dude, I feel ya. It's like TOTALLY annoying. Like, DUDE!

 

Wow, that felt strange.

 

While preaching and witnessing on the streets of downtown Atlanta, Ga my oldest son had a guy tell him, "DUDE, dude. That's like totally dude!"

What a vocabulary.

Way back then, I knew a girl who talked that way. She wrote me a letter once and she even wrote that way! As annoying as it was to hear her speak it, trying to read her letter was a real chore with so many "likes" in there and sometimes they were used properly and not just a space filling "like" which took some deciphering skills to catch.

A few years ago I read a "re-telling" of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet updated with the modern day teenage vocabulary. The first few paragraphs were humorous with all the "likes", "yeahs", and "dudes" and other such un-needed words inserted where they didn't belong. However, I couldn't finish it, it was just too difficult  annoying to read. 

I have a few pet peeves, but I've already aired them on a dog forum.... :coverlaugh:

I thought this might be too lengthy but...here it is.

Why did I develop this one bias against one?

Somewhere in the deep reaches of my life I developed a distaste for the ‘one’ remarks. This may only be a blind spot for me while others have no issue or have no aversion to this. ‘One’ can be at the beginning, middle, or end of a sentence. Sometimes, preceded or followed by some conciliatory qualifier, weak modifier, personally exclusioning preposition, prepositional phrase, or sometimes a word feigning humility. For me PERSONALLY, something I’ll probably have to get past, the use comes across as arrogance. Examples:

Example 1
To fully comprehend the correct view one must have some knowledge of scientific imperatives.
Example 2
One might need to have the further knowledge of debate when attempting to argue political perspective.
Example 3
One might, one must, one should, one shouldn’t, (here’s a favorite) one couldn’t possibly, one never, ad nauseum, the list could go on indefinitely.

Is the use scholarly or give an appearance of great knowledge, experience, or wisdom? It makes me want to reply, “well, how about two or three, will that make a difference?” It isn’t Biblical, ‘one’ will not find ‘one’ used in the manner described above from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21.

If you’re talking to me, my preference is that you talk to me; such as example 2, “You need further knowledge of how to debate when arguing politics” I’m a big boy and I can handle it. If you’re talking to a group, then say which group, i.e. “Christians should or conservatives might this or that.”

If you’re excluding yourself then plainly indicate the individual or group you’re addressing as the subject. Or, if you truly are being arrogant, just come out and tell me how much more perceptive, educated, smarter or experienced you are and how much you want to put ‘one’ in their place.

I hear the ‘one’ comments coming.

As far as I know, I don't use the term "one" in that manner when speaking but do so in writing as "one" is used as an all-inclusive which is often better than saying "you", especially if not meaning a direct and personal "you".

If I say, "If you were to do or think or act such-and-such..." in a conversation the listener would likely understand my context but when written, especially in a forum or similar situation, it's most often taken in a direct, personal saying.

I've never deemed the use of "one", when referring to folks in general, as something scholarly or whatever, only a simple means of trying to convey the idea of anyone in a manner more readable.

I'm not a grammar major so if there is a better way to convey such in writing, please let me know. This is a term I don't recall ever using prior to being involved in forums where personal pronouns are so often taken out of context and, well, personally.

As for a similar pet peeve of mine, it would be in regards to those who refer to themselves in the third person. Certain famous people seem to have a habit of this and it's rather annoying, to me anyway.

      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.
