Glad Tidings, Anyone reading. Please add your own 'Weeny Peeve', here, and VENT about it, if needs must. A Small (weeny) thing, which is irritating (peevish)... enough to be irritating, yet not so large as to breakdown One's life... I shall try examples of what I mean, thusly:
...Packets which say:"Pull here to open" --- Yet upon pulling, only the "Pull Here" part opens, and One must resort to the use of tools such as Scissors to open the rest of the darn thing.
...That floating bit of FLUFF which just *will not land* and so can constantly evade being swept up or cleaned away. (Vacuum Cleaners must be employed, here.)
...Things which state that they cost under "X" amount of money, yet only because they cost "X minus 1 plus 99-pence"... The saving of just 1 Pence is ALWAYS touted loudly as a bargain!
...TV Shows which are fictional but when beginning to discuss a real-life impasse, it is as if the writers know this and so change the subject... usually with something loud/dramatic/exploding.
...Not something I myself do, but have often seen done: When eating something "crunchy", upon the first bite, the rest of it fairly disintegrates so much that collecting the fragments is no longer worth any nutrition gained from the effort.
... Even if no-one else replies, I Myself may add to this Thread, now that I have started it, for everyday things. Good Fortune and Stay Safe, All.
More "Weeny Peeves"... not sure if I should continue this Thread, though.
When running a Cold bath ( - yes, "Cold", not hot - ), sometimes the resultant bath turns out to be steaming Hot. Nothing to do with the time of year, either.
"Faulty" Candles. These are those Candles where the Wick is lit, but it just burns down and goes out; and if it is attempted to be lit again, then the Wax melts and puts the wick out again. ...'Hours of Fun', there. (!)
Toothpaste tubes which squeeze themselves. That is to say... it looks empty, but it always has more to give, it will just not show You how to get what is left... so there.
ThereAreSomePeopleUsuallyChildren,Yeah... ... ... ...WhoBunchWordsTogetherReallyQuckly... ... ... ...AndThenLeaveALongPauseInbetween... ... ... AndTheyTalkLikeThisAllTheTime,Yeah...?(This may be a "South London" thing, though...!)
The "EPG-Timer Setting" upon a TV Recording device. (EPG = "Electronic Program Guide".) It seems to find it funny to cut off the endings of a TV Program, so that I do not know how the Plot turns out. I learnt to never use it. The EPG is supposed to be timed exactly, but is it secretly working towards some hidden, sinister, higher agenda...? ;-)
...With regards to TV-Shows and Bad Guys as I said before, I forgot to mention: f) Has Hair which is 'slicked back'. The Beard and Upperclass English thing still seems to carry on to this day, though.
The fact that around my area, about 1/5th of ALL Cars... is a Toyota Prius. But they then disappear upon my reaching New Malden... Why?
People who as soon as they get off a Bus decide to cross the Road directly in front of the same Bus.
When standing in a queue, the Customer in front colludes with the desk-person to think it funny to begin a loooooooooooong "conversation". This is usually when I am just then the only other person in the Queue. I am so used to this happening to Me by now (see my Username), that when they start this, I simply walk away. The good part is when I look back, and see them looking at Me walking off, and so they stop their "conversation" immediately -- because They did not expect Me to do that.
Awesome and agree fully, quite right.
Spot on you.
Yay and yay again.
Absolutely continue this thread, please....... :).
You started it thank goodness,
Alright, Mr LoneWarrior Sir. I shall try to continue this as asked, though I am still uncertain. So here is one more 'Weeny Peeve' for the Night....
--- It is late, very late at night... indoors... very quiet... everything seems quite still... And all of a sudden either or both of these things happen: a) The Fridge starts to sing. (Fridges can reverberate Radio Waves, like Cooling Fans can. This is a known fact.)b) However... Another matter may rise in the darkness... More scary than the Fridge... more scary than anything known to Mankind... The Freezer - not the Fridge, note - the Freezer, will very suddenly groan very loudly:
"EEEHEERRRUUUUGHUUGHEEERRRROAAAARAAAAAARGHARGLEAAARGLEOOOHGUUUUGUGIFOHHH ... *poff*"
... and then afterwards it just stands there, pretending that it did not do that.
...The "Central Heating" could start its own Thread, so I shall not dignify it with more than a mention, here. Good Night, to All who may read... (!)
The first time in 10 years I put my glasses on the sofa.....my daughter sat on them and broke them argh
Again you are so right, also how can it be that a fridge and a freeezer can be trusted to be left on even when left several days alone,
A kettle or toaster cannot be trusted and should be unplugged as are most things,
it used to be thst washing machines were not to be trusted, now such things can actually play tunes,
Heating indeed, a totally new thread is needed, apparently you can switch it on or off even when not at home by using a mobile phone?
All very good as s the ability to lock or unlock the doors using the internet, a shame when no internet is available and you find yourself locked inside unable to get out, yikes,
Thsnk you for cheering me up and for everyone adding to this fantastic post. It is good to see I am not the only one to be peeved by such things.
Also I have yet to find out if the light inside actually does go out inside a fridge when the door is closed ?or does it ?
I must crawl inside one day to find out Lol.
Me again. When a Fridge and Freezer are left alone for over a Year or more, then late at nights, often they begin to argue by loudly BANGING at each other. Then whomever loses the fight will "Wet Themselves", and so a new Fridge or Freezer must be then purchased....I think that this happens with Washing Machines versus Dryers, but the Dryer in losing has no innate water, and so it just turns COLD at everyone whenever it loses.
I should add that All of this most likely happens in very hot Summer Months.
...But the Central Heating NEVER loses a Fight, because it knows that IT controls nothing more-or-less than ** all of the Weather upon this Entire Planet **... and so at Nights it laughs loudly and heartily down the Plumbing, in celebration of its Omnipotence......But do not tell anyone else that I said that. ;-)
I saw this DC and it reminded me of your wise words, it says a great deal about misunderstanding what is often quite obvious if only enough thought is put into interpreting and seeing what is before you.
enjoy and keep being YOU ️
Please write more my fellow Takiwātanga.
More sonnets from your fridge would be welcome....or other sonorous inanimate objects
( Oh... Madam With the Long Nose... As I see this, it takes Me a while to compile a worthy reply. You, Ma'am, were one of the great pioneers of "lightheartedness" upon this forum. I simply followed You, and I can never be as good...! All I do is try to remain despite Hackers & etc...
Yet as You ask, I wrote a thing about Timekeeping, here. But I think that, considering the 'current climate', too few are now in the sort of humour as was present when I began this Thread! Very very Glad Tidings to You Ma'am anyway. Here is what I wrote anyway... )
The "Even a broken Clock is correct at least once a Day" part...
When One has a Battery powered Watch/Clock, and the Battery runs out in a way so as not to be noticed. (This especially happens to non-digital Bedroom Clocks which show only 12 numbers & not 24.) Sometimes The Watch/Clock itself *is aware* that it is NOT the only Watch/Clock in the house, and so may become jealous of other Clocks, & thus it mimics their times whenever they are looked at. (This especially happens to Manual Watches/Clocks, which are aware of Digital things such as a Smartphone.) ALL Watches/Clocks are aware of Time-Travel, and so They always know - from Greenwich - what the *real* Atomic Time is. Thus whenever bored or frustrated, they will make a sport of displaying false Times to anyone else who is not a Watch/Clock Themselves.
E.g. - I check the Manual Clock at 12 noon, which is the correct time, and then look at another Clock to confirm that. Then I check the first Clock a bit later, 15h (3pm) and that is correct. But then even later I check the first Clock again and see other Clocks showing a different time? So the Battery must have run out, yet the Clock is still ticking. But still later, doing nothing, I check the first Clock and the Time is now correct and agreed at by all other Clocks. And this sort of cycle can repeat for very many days.
Sometimes if a Clock is *really* angry, it may even run backwards, with the "Second"-Hand swinging back and forth, right there as it is being looked at. Upset Clocks will do this even as they are being set - the Hand just will not settle upon that particular Time. That would be the indicator for getting a new watch/clock... but some of them do eventually calm down and tick-on as if nothing was wrong.
At times when a Battery needs replacing, a new one is not always available, and so the Clock will do as I just said there, or it will tick even louder during nights in order to carry on complaining. (Wildly jerking Hands or Digit flapping accompanied by a loud "Tch-Tch-Tch", is the most common form of admonishment.)The absolute worst thing to happen is when the Clock EXPLODES the Battery (so-called "leaking") and then - barring the use of a screwdriver - that is, alas, the end of the entire relationship.
...I am only writing here what I have seen for Myself, and am hoping that others understand. (!)Notice that I wrote nothing about that annoying thing when all things with Numbers everywhere are looked at and they all show the same number (11:11, 12:12, 3:33, etc.). And finally, when My Own Manual Clocks tire out, it is usually at 'a quarter-to-something', I know not why. Gravity, perhaps, makes the lifting of Hands a tiresome matter when Battery Power is low.
Stay Safe, Everyone!
