Pet Peeve......What Is Your's
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:42:56 PM »
Every darn retail store has a damn loyalty card and/or a customer database!   It's not enough that you can't just go in a make a purchase, they have to look you up to see what you purchased last and how long ago it was.  Now a lot of times they claim it's for "warranty" information or "this is so you don't have to answer all these questions again.  Every one of these damn places asks for your telephone number to search with, WHY the damn phone#???????????   Today I was in the tire store and every person was asked their phone number, then after 5 minutes of searching the clerk says; "No that ain't it"  then they try another number and the same damn thing happens.  Not one person had the right phone number!  Here's an idea........USE THE PERSONS LAST NAME FOR A SEARCH!!!!!!!   

Checkout at Lowes; "Do you have a my Lowes card?"    Go to the grocery store; "Do you have a store card?"  NO!! "Then what's your phone number?"   Go to the drug store....same as the grocery store.   At the auto store.........same thing...............What is all this crap??????     Try to use cash and they look at you like you're a criminal!

What is your Pet Peeve??

EZ way out.....give them a fictitious one.  I do and if they question it.... "Who knows it better, me or you?"  If that doesn't work, I leave it on the counter and walk out.  Did that at a grocery store with over $200 sitting on the line and that was 20 years ago!

UFB!  I had one of my soap box rants on this subject, easily 2,000 characters about a recent restaurant experience and *poof*, it was gone when I went to preview it.  :014:

When I know more about your job than you do.  Incompetence in your profession is a big one with me.

You guys get upset too easily.

Sirens are my pet peeve.

It seems every asshole in Brooklyn (Besides me) has a siren in their vehicle - and uses it day and night.

Private ambulances! Making a bunion run?!?! With lights and sirens!

Pisses me off.

You know what mine is- cell phones. Especially the people who are in front of you at the checkout and can't put the damn phone away long enough to talk to the clerk.

Then there are those who have every stupid coupon on their phone so they stand there and go through them then give the phone to the clerk each time to scan it.

Then there are the people who stand next to you and talk to somebody on their phone about them being constipated or something so everybody gets to hear it.  :014: :035:

I could go on...
