When I see a super nice but expensive item in a marketplace and it doesn't have a demo for me to try

Read any "reviews" it may have. If no reviews = no sale!

Edit: - I only take notice of the ones that say something like "..not the best fit but works for Maitreya/Gianni" depending on alts and similar, but yeah in hindsight, not the best way!

A bit more than a peeve but having to say goodbye to a furball when you know it's the right thing but the worst decision to have to make.  He has gone to chase balls in the clouds on a walk with Ki no

I don't think that's a metaphor, but whether or not it is, I think you could have found a better way to express yourself. 

Back when I was a noob, we didn't HAVE no fancy HUDs.  We just filled up our inventories with hundreds o' texture pants and tops with diffr'nt colors.  You youngsters are spoiled. And we walked t

Be wary of reviews... especially if there are a lot.  Some merchants pay for 5 star reviews as we have seen recently.  Never buy without a demo....I think is a good way to mitigate risk.

I rarely believe reviews. They're often either glowing puff pieces written by the merchant's alt or they are nasty, vengeful rants. Even if they don't hit one of those extremes, reviews rarely tell me a thing about how well the product will work for me. The only way to tell is to get a demo and see for myself.  Forget the reviews.  If there's no demo, I usually won't buy anything that costs more than a couple hundred L$.

 Bizarre dreams are my pet peeve. My brain can turn any subject I think about during the day into the most bizarre dream.
 Last night I read a forums post discussing what the new region reveal might be. I fell asleep and dreamed I went to the reveal and the homes were corn dogs on a stick wrapped in paper towels. Apparently the moles were supposed to take the paper towels off before the reveal, had not and some troll came along and set them ablaze. Panicked moles were running everywhere waving their hands in the air. 
 No, I did not eat a corn dog (EW), take drugs or drink last night. 😂

Since I bear some responsibility for the locking of the original peeves thread, I've started another and promise to stay out of it!

Carry on, Kids!!!

I missed the new thread until now! How will we keep it to peeves not on the original thread?

I have to admit, I'm one of those people that gets completely lost at really big events.

I hate them, I never even finish them, it's just too exhausting and too stressful to try and look at everything. I love going to C88, Fameshed because they are indoors and one level, not 5o that I have to constantly keep camming and camming and camming. Put them back in buildings!

I get really bizarre dreams if I forget to take my antidepressant meds.  It seems that the meds suppress dreaming and if I miss a dose my brain slips into hyperdrive.

Oooh!  Oooh!  I know!!

My pet peeve is people who repeat pet peeves...theirs or others'.

There, problem solved!  Because NOBODY wants to peeve ME.  You really, really, don't.

There's a saying, "Don't sweat the petty stuff, pet the sweaty stuff."

(I hope that's someone's peeve. Their sweaty, petty peeve.)

May the sweaty stuff take a shower before?

I have been refunded but that's not the point.  A company specialising in unusual lightbulbs should know better than to stick a bulb in a cardboard box with nothing to protect it and send it out by Royal Mail. 

I ordered food items from a UK discount food store online, and normally they are really good at wrapping everything in bubble wrap, but they must have had the Friday afternoon staff in, because my parcel got to me in a right old state. It had been delivered round the back of my brother's house, one bottle of bitter lemon and a jar of jam had been smashed, there was no bubble wrap used in the parcel whatoever, and judging by the number of ants crawling over the whole lot, the parcel must have been there for a good couple of hours.  

Sadly, because of this one bad experience, I have never ordered from that company again. I didn't even get an apology, let alone a refund from them (Paypal did actually refund to me a few weeks later.).

Pete peeve on this one is "cut price" food stores that have among their listings ridiculous things like champagne and cognac.

I have champagne tastes but a lemonade budget :(
