Today I saw someone with Ohio plates with one of those "Cape Cod Tunnel" stickers on their bumper.  WE GET IT.  THERE'S NOT REALLY A CAPE COD TUNNEL.

I don't like when a meeting is scheduled for a certain time, in a particular conference room and then one of the attendees comes down early and stands by your desk.....instead of going into the conference room.....and waiting for when other people come.....On Time.

People who show their homes and don't clean.  Why would I or anyone else want to see a messy as house no matter how nice the bones are?  UGH!


Why do parents think they can tell you what to do even when your grown? WTH!

I had no idea this thread would be so wildly popular through the years, as an outlet to vent about petty stuff during your day-to-day grind. I should have set it up in a way that I could charge you motherf*ckers.

Hmm... "Dr. David." I think the title, "Doctor" is legally protected but it does kind of have a ring to it.

Yeah, I'm sure Dr. Dre is paying someone some licensing fee for the honorarium.

If there ever was a doctoral program for beat-making, Dre would have a doctorate!

....And if that was sarcasm, then you must have a Ph.D yourself: Player Hater's Degree.  :wink2: :shoot:

^ University of Michigan gave Mos Def an honorary PhD or maybe it was visiting professor... I can't remember.  Either way he got something.

People that charge / plug in their electronics on the subway and let the cords dangle across the aisle. At least sit in a seat above an outlet. Same goes with stations.

If people abuse this by creating a trip hazard, they're just going to put locks on all the plugs.

There are electric outlets on Chicago subways?

That's the big thing now -- putting electrical outlets and wi-fi all over the place in airports, on trains and other public and quasi-public spaces.

I've never seen a outlet on a subway.  Commuter train, yes.  Subway no.

Every seat or just certain seats on the train?  And are they on all train lines?

No which why I complained about wires crossing aisles. All vehicles have them near the end seats and some in the center.

Yes, people do seem to spend a lot of time using the information superhighway to "surf the 'net" on their cellular telephones today.

Cord Violation again!!!  Walking back to my place from a bar and there's an extension cord hanging out a third floor window of my building plugged into an electric car.  No...no..no!!!  I mean, I'm all for electric vehicles, but nearly all the garages in the city have EV charging spaces. 

And another pet peeve, I tried to photograph the said extension cord, but my phone HD is full.  Deleted a few videos, yet it still wouldn't let me take a photo.  Damnit apple!!!

Pet peeve: Clevelanders thinking UO is a Cleveland forum.

It's simply due to their strength in large numbers, dude. At least Cincinnatians come in second in terms of numbers and Cincinnatians take great pride in their city's history and development. Hell, the Cincinnati Streetcar thread has like 20 people viewing it (and are actually prone to engaging in conversation) at any given time. Columbusites come in third on here and to make matters worse, they tend (not specifically on this site but in general) to be pretty apathetic when it comes to city affairs or just the culture of the city in general. They tend to not realize what they have here.

I think the other Columbusites are all over at Columbus Underground. Cleveland, Cincy and Ohio's other cities don't have something as popular as that.

I wasn't around when Cincinnatians outnumbered Clevelanders, but was there a similar issue?

Pretty often I see a thread title and think "oh, this will be interesting" ... and then I find out it's some parochially titled Cleveland thread.
