    Pet Peeves Thread, Part Deux

    How come the person who plugs the john, slips out quietly and tells no one, not even maintenance that there's a problem? And why am I the one who usually finds the problem!?

    Funny you should start this thread......I "just" had one of those moments.


    People who make programs (always programs you "must" use at work) that don't use standard conventions. They have common features you use elsewhere but decide there is a better way to do it than every other program you use.

    I just was using our interface to get released software and the search box allows wildcards, but instead of * for the wildcard character it's %.

    I wouldn't put it past them to change copy to control-L, cut to control-R and paste to control-I as well.

    I have a new one: guys who talk on the cell phone in the public bathroom. Gentlemen, it's a urinal not a phone booth! I want both hands where I can't see them!

    Hang up and pee.

    So we should be pronouncing the "deux" in the title as "doo" then?

    I would totally hack it by injecting random single and double quotes and what not and see if he is passing input going to an sql query

    A place i used to work at my boss had a similar pet peeve. He could not understand why people felt the need to say hi and begin discussing the weather while he was at the urinal.

    Gross misuse of the words "literally" and "ironically". Are you guilty?

    Yes and yes.
    I occasionally use/abuse the word ironical/irony and my pet peeve is with people who attempt to point out that it is an incorrect usage o the word ironically where upon I have to then explain to them that the English Language is a constantly growing and changing entity and that they have not been appointed Nazi Police.

    I think to be analogous it would be like talking about the weather next to a one armed man who uses American Sign Language.

    I don't care if the dude has a prehensile, um, tail, he needs to pay attention it's pointing in the right direction.

    I guess it's really a pet peeve.

    It is an SQL query, I'm sure....but that still doesn't help me to use it normally like any normal standard wildcard search should.

    He probably couldn't figure out how to do a string replacement of * with %
    I'm willing to bet you can have more fun trying to crash the program with extra single and double quotes

    I use the word ironical only in a literal sense.

    Buttinskis. People that nose their way into a conversation that they had no part of, then take it over.

    I have a few standing-in-line pet peeves.

    1. I'm waiting in line and the next person to get in line doesn't stand behind me (like everyone else is lining up) but stands next to me.

    2. Someone next to me in line stands close. Too close. Like I can feel their breath on me when they exhale. And it's especially annoying if I try to move away from them but they just move in close again. I usually just deal with it, but a few months ago, this clueless guy did this to me and I had to say something. I tried to move away from him but he closed the gap. Finally, I turned around and waved my hand between us and said, "Do you mind?" while motioning for him to stay further back. He looked at me like I was crazy but the other people in line snickered like they understood why I was annoyed.

    3. I can't stand it when someone doesn't move the line along. A guy was standing in front of me at the bank. The line moved and the person in front of the guy moved up about 6 feet or so. The guy ahead of me doesn't move an inch.
