    People who smoke in public places where other people congregate.

    Such as store parking lots and out front.

    I'm considering getting some kind of respirator or face mask to wear when going to a store now....just to travel from my vehicle to the store.

    I have seen people smoking on biking/running trails. I think I should have legal permission to beat them with my bicycle.

    Close Talkers. I have a relative in the hospital so on my lunch break I stopped by to see them. One of the aunts was there visiting as well. I guess I've never noticed or been in a situation that was susceptible to this awfully uncomfortable trait of hers. The more I stepped back the closer she got. My dad is a close talker, but he's my dad so I have no problem telling him "Hey, I can smell your morning coffee."

    Clueless DIYers.

    The prior owner of my house did a lot of his own renovations and such. Found a lot of problems over the years. Lots of electrical, open splices in the ceiling, wire coloring reversed or completely wrong etc.

    Last night was my latest find.



    For the uninitiated, what's happening here is that the switch is breaking the circuit between the phase (or hot, the black one) and the ground (or neutral, the white one).

    This is a big no no. When you wire up a light, you break the circuit on the phase, meaning both of those wires should be black.

    Why this is dangerous is because that means even when the light switch is off there's still a live line up in the fixture. If you are grounded and touch that line, when you're changing a bulb, for example, it will bite you.

    Looks like I found what I'll be doing with my Sunday.
    Just a barner.

    There goes Davis!

    I remember seeing George Blanda put out a cigarette before he went into a game.

    My pet peeve are people that use more than two adjectives to order a cup of coffee.

    I have got a new one. People that don't use a sidewalk in neighborhoods and people that don't keep their dogs in check.

    People who work harder at doing nothing at work than they would if they actually worked. And then thinking they should be applauded just for showing up.

    I also have a new one. People who walk their dogs and let them crap in your yard and do not clean it up.
