    The biggest pet peeve I've ever seen was on a Great Dane.

    Just one more time, I'd like to see that.
    i have to fly a lot and pretty much everything about flying is a pet peeve, especially internationally.

    Either of you have this issue?

    Employees at the airport were conducting routine X-rays of luggage when they spotted "suspicious content in a luggage piece," according to the federal police in Berlin. Because it was unclear from the initial scan what the bag contained, an alert was issued shortly before 11 a.m., resulting in the closure of the airport's D terminal while police investigated the suspicious items.

    The owner of the bag was called over the airport speaker system and eventually talked to police about his luggage. However, he was reluctant to properly explain the contents of the bag -- possibly because of embarrassment, according to a federal police spokesperson -- saying instead that his luggage contained "technical stuff."

    After an hour-long investigation involving a bomb squad, authorities eventually determined that the items were sex toys.

    I agree. I hate their coffee too. I posted in a thread a while back about my Starbucks experience. I was in the hospital waiting area years ago and Starbucks had airpots of their coffee in there. I got a cup and immediately spit it out because I thought it was awful. I thought it had to be like a day old or something because everyone raves about how good their coffee is. Several weeks later, I decided to see what the fuss was all about, so I went in to get a piping hot fresh cup of regular plain black coffee. I looked at their menu and then had to ask the lady how much just a large black coffee cost. She looked at me strange and says “you want a venti plain coffee?” I told her “I guess if that’s a large plain coffee”. IIRC, it was almost $5. I left and when it cooled enough to take a sip, it was apparent that the stuff in the airpots at the hospital was fresh too. I poured the rest out and have never been back.

    ETA: I see they offer an even larger size of their rancid swill now, the Trenta

    Wow!

    I see a lot of drivers stopping and waiting in the wrong lanes in order to make a turn that they missed at regular intersections. Instead of making the safe move of continuing on and making a safe u-turn or turning off farther down the road and coming back, they endanger and frustrate a lot of folks to save a minute or so...or less. If its on the interstate, then it takes a little longer to get back to the exit but holy moly your video shows what can happen.

    That driver should be locked up and throw away the key.
