Oh I just have one pet peeve. I really can't stand people who are annoyed by either of the following: empty profiles, 'unreadable' fonts, unmatching body parts, flexi prims, AO-less avis, jazz hands,

DJs/hosts teleport inviting their "friends"

I'm not apportioning blame for what's been going on in this forum recently, because that's one thing that appears to start a thread on its downward spiral. Like many of us here - I am absolutely

I’ve decided you fibbed in this post. But because of that, I can’t trust your posts anymore. Sorry, but it’s you, not me.

The Renaissance poet Sir Philip Sidney argued, in opposition to Plato's accusation that artists spread falsehoods, that "for the poet, he nothing affirms, and therefore never lies."

As I'm being ironic all of the time, I'm clearly not pretending to tell the truth, and therefore can hardly be accused of lying.

I re-discovered another pet peeve today, and reminded myself why I never do them... HUNTS.

Hate, hate with a passion.

Just show me a vendor where I can actually pay for the items I want, tyvm.

Same. The prize is seldom worth the headache I get trying to locate it.

Probably because someone evoked a particularly grotesque meme! 😏

Was it me?! I don't remember what I posted now... it's been, like, two hours ago. I really can't be expected to remember that far back...

Pet peeve: Becoming increasingly forgetful the older I get.

Not you, Beth. The malefactor has already owned up to his hideous crime against humanity and good taste here in this thread.

And is labouring under a Scylla-inflicted headache as retribution.

Especially after I ignore someone for “sarcasm”. What?!

Does this mean I have another mess to cleanup after you? I keep telling you, even gown up lions use a sandbox. It just happens to be much larger than your standard kid sized litterbox... I mean sandbox.

You're too young to worry about such things.  I have more than 20 years on you and I'm not starting to worry yet (although age is a convenient excuse sometimes).  Blame forgetfulness on distractions instead.  Everyone empathizes with distractions.

When Dad began showing signs of Alzheimer's, it was pretty tough. He recognized what has happening and was deeply troubled by it. Eventually it progressed to the point he know longer knew what he'd lost and he was happy in the moment. Mom and I had to choose to let go of the past in order to be happy in the moment with him. Now, I mine Dad's past for stories to share with others.

I intended my comment to Beth to be both humorous and true.

There is no good way, necessarily, to grow old and pass on, but I am so thankful that neither of my folks had Alzheimer's. It was hard enough already... I can't even imagine the pain he, and you, and your entire family felt.  ❤️

We got through it a lot better than some, or maybe even most. Dad was never belligerent, which happens to some with Alzheimer's. What may have saved us all is that he'd always nurtured his silly little inner child. As he drifted back through his life, that stayed intact. Mom is now dealing with the aftermath of a stroke. She also knows what she's lost, and she's not going to forget it. Still, she's generally in good cheer and now happily tells others what she's been silently thinking of me her entire life.

"That's my daughter. She's a pain in the ass and her cooking stinks."

ETA: I just realized - Not only have I discovered a pet peeve, I've become one!

DJing in a club and the club owner isn't listening and others AFK. My man tested that out one night when he dropped the stream to swap computers and no one commented. Although the club in question doesn't get many visitors accept for one dudes family that drops in, probably from the same house or 2.
