I’ve been going through past posts, looking at how far I’ve come in a year. It actually started as my looking for this post, where I learned the link only takes you to the current cartoon rather than the one which was originally there :(.
That is what brought on this second pet peeves post.
The Zits cartoon I was linking to above was supposed to be the one where the male gives the female (I don’t read enough to know who’s who) an awesome massage and she ends up a puddle on the floor; I’ll have to scan it into the computer and repost it I guess since I do have a hard copy of it.
Any way…that is one of my pet peeves…linking to something specific only to have it link to the home page instead.
I have a whole slew of pet peeves actually, they just don’t bother me unless someone’s writing sets them off. The biggest one recently seems to be passed for past.
When I read an otherwise wonderful fiction I want to hit them over the head with a large Oxford Dictionary and even larger Thesaurus so they’ll learn which word or tense is correct.
Ooooohhhhhhh, shutter for shudder as well! That one makes me want to reach through the screen, hit back space and correct the bloody thing!
What about you? What are your pet peeves? They don’t have to be about writing, I just spend far too much time in front of a keyboard so that’s where most of mine are…ohhhhh, yeahhhhhhhh, no one else apparently knowing how to wash dishes!
Not making sure the toothpaste is up at the top of the tube, instead squeezing it from the middle sigh.
Last minute plans without asking me if I want to do something, expecting me to just go with the flow.
