Pet Peeves

More traffic Pet peeves:  It seems in my town that half the population has no idea what a flashing yellow turn arrow on the traffic light means (turns permitted, yield to oncoming traffic) and they just sit there without any opposing traffic for a country mile coming down the road.

Another traffic Pet Peeve: Those people in the left turn lane awaiting the traffic lights to turn green and a green arrow appears and they just sit there as if they don't know what to do.

Pet peeve:  People who are always, sometimes without fail, late.  One of my best friends entire family has this character flaw.  I don't think they have ever been less than 10 minutes late to anything. Often over an hour...I long ago stopped inviting them to dinner unless it is cold, no-prep, self serve food; after having to try to keep food warm and edible for up to an hour.

​Out here in the sticks...the left turn lane is also the right turn lane :) I know what you mean I go to the city once in a while and even I know what it's for.

4-way Stops (right of way) The car to the right always has the right of way.

I arrive at the same time as the person on my right. The other motorist is supposed to move through the intersection first. I look over after a few seconds and the person is motioning me to proceed through. Why don't people just obey the law?

​And then there's the other end of the spectrum that happened to me yesterday... when you arrive at the intersection just slightly earlier than the person on your left (leaving room for the possibility that you both arrived at the same time), and as you begin to turn across the intersection, you realize that the person on your left is driving through too... and she stares at you​ like you're the one in the wrong!!! :verymad:

​Yep. That is the other head on the two-headed coin.

Pet Peeve:  Toast crumbs in the butter tub.  My grandson is guilty of this just this morning.  Hope he sleeps well in the toast crumbs I put between his bed sheets.  I am betting a crummy nights sleep.

Pet Peeve: The constant whining by so many people and our society in general about being "offended" over every little thing and nothing at all.

​I'm offended that you are offended at my offense of your offensive behavior.

​Now if you would just add in another of my pet peeves (calling anyone who disagrees with you a "hater") this would be a perfect example of the sad nature of what passes for discussion and tolerance in America today. Thank you!

I agree Rosie. If I wanted to play music I'd play it myself, I don't want to have to hear others loud "thump, thump, thump" music.

i don't see why our law enforcement agents allow people to do that

​Another pet peeve: police driving by a place where music is blasting loud and they just keep on driving.

Pet peeve:  Condiment squeeze bottles that require to much pressure to start dispensing causing an initial squirt that often times is more product than you wanted.  Problem with the ketchup but not a problem with the mustard because you can never get to much mustard.

      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.
