I have a variety of pet peeves.

The four that come to mind are:

A) Horrific spelling.
The occasional spelling error / typo doesn't bother me. But can't you re-read your post, and fix erorrs, before hitting "Post," or edit posts if you see the errors afterwards?

B) Incorrectly used words.
For example: Your, you're. There, thier, they're. Etc.
When I see these words used incorrectly in posts, I really do have to stop and re-read it to understand what was written.

C) Putting the $ after then number.
While I realize that there are countries where it's normal practice to do it that way, I find it irritating when I see it being done by Americans. For example, on a restaurant menu, if you're going to use the dollar sign at all, put it BEFORE the number. There's a local dollar store named "1$ Bargains." Really? You couldn't get it right in the name of your store?

D) Using "Of" when you mean "Have".
For example: I should of stopped at three peeves.


I have other peeves, but these are the ones that come to mind.


Gaming vs gambling? I couldn't care less.

There's another peeve: People who say "I could care less" when they mean "I couldn't care less."



Nice post. And how about saying then when you mean than? I honestly believe that a lot of people don't no the difference (sorry, I couldn't help myself).

When people don't buy in enough to actually play the game. If you are going to play Ultimate Texas Hold'em at the $25 level do NOT buy in for $100. I swear a guy at the table bought chips 8 hands in a row. Just buy-in for $500, ***hole.

Post Edited pursuant to profanity rule, just "Ass," would also have probably been appropriate.-Mission146

This! I make my share of errors, but this one drives me crazy.

Example: I was forced to play their H17 game, but at least it was better then 6:5.
It seems to be more prevalent each day. I see it in posts that are otherwise very well written.

Pet peeve -- drawing of owls wearing graduation caps. Why don't you ever see an owl in the wild wearing one?



Saw these owls at the Hallmark store the other day.

Image source: http://i.istockimg.com/file_thumbview_approve/10617125/2/stock-illustration-10617125-brown-graduate-owl.jpg



The reason you don't see owls in the wild wearing graduation caps is because they don't matriculate. A formal education is anathema to these "wild" owls. There was this story I read in Owl Digest about this wild boy owl who worked for a mortar board company in the tassel department. One day this owl arrived early to work and decided to use this free time to pose in front of a mirror dressed in cap and gown. Word got out and he was pea graveled to death.

Desert versus Dessert

Yeah, this one trips me up a lot. But I know it, so I always look it up before posting. I have a free dictionary app for stuff like that.


My newest / latest peeve that drives me nuts is when I hear people use "I" when they mean "me". And I've been hearing it a lot on one of my favorite podcasts. Grrrr.

Here's a hint: Anytime you're about to say "___ and I", take out the other person. If it sounds weird, use "___ and me".

Yes, this is very prevalent and seems to be more so as time goes on. I give the same hint, modified as needed for the third person "___ and s/he"
Fortunately the second person usually resolves itself :-)

My pet peeve would be buying tee shirts from Dollar General then rediscovering once again I open them and they reek like cinnamon. Then the price $8.50 for only 3 and $11 if you want XXL. Cotton and slave labor must be soaring through the roof. I think this tee shirt manufacturing is practically 100% automated by now so maybe just 1 slave to pay for.

You want more deSSert. Like ice cream.

My pet peeve is this kinda shit:
"do you have a players card?"
"No I don't"
"Give me your ID I'll make you one"
"No thanks, I don't want one"
"Well surely you do you can get free stuff!"
"I can afford my own stuff....I'll let you know if I change my mind"
"You can get free roooooooms, fooooooood, points, all sorts of stuff"
"No thank you"
*pit boss walks away*
Dealer: "you sure you don't want a card? New sign ups get 2 for 1 at the restaurant! That's like a REALLY good deal!"
"Ummmm.....I'm fine, thanks though"
"I mean, there's no reason not to! And if you lose you get 10% of it back! It doesn't make sense not to!"
"I just don't want a card, really"
"Why don't you want a card?"
"Not Here to get points or free stuff just wanna enjoy myself"
"I'll hook you up with a card, no problem. *whistle whistle* Melissa, player wants to sign up for a card"
"COLOR ME UP"

You need to make something up that works every time. Even if it does not make sense. IE "no thank you, I'm an environmental advocate pro the green movement, I'm against the use of plastic and computers."

"I promised my Wife I Would not gamble, if she finds out I have a card here i'll be in the dog house"

"I'm superstitious, last time I got a players card I lost everything in 5 min, PLEASE DON'T EVEN MENTION PLAYERS CARDS TO ME"

"I left my ID in the room, I will go grab it in a min, I don't want to break the flow of the cards."

"My father was killed by a players card"

In his discourse on Emanuel Kant he allowed his argument to be defeated by the teeny bopper's simple act of removing her blouse thus proving that the normative act of laziness defeated his attempt to prove the correctness of The Categorical Imperative. Having received his just deserts at the Philosophical society, he adjourned the meeting to the next door delicatessen entitled Just Desserts at which each member consumed a dessert.

My current Pet Peeve, at the moment, is the terrible overuse of the word AMAZING.

____________________________________________________________________

Adjective
amazing (comparative more amazing, superlative most amazing)

Causing wonder and amazement; possessing uniquely wonderful qualities.

Alright.

"That slice of apple pie from the bakery was amazing!'

Come on now?

"You are an amazing person!"

Yes me too, this used to be a thing I did wen I first started tis may mention a rating card however most did it without a rating card, you just used a book and the change girls marked it for you as you bought in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgEApN9ap0A tey.

This just shows you are out of touch with AP.

Nowadays Not using a rating card can cost you 100s of thousands dollars, not just in comps but free play that's worth up to 99% in cash. Some places even offer cash instead of free play usually only half.

Most promotions require a card.

Only a few AP's don't use cards, usually medium level card counters. Even then that can be a bad idea, casinos look for that. If you are hopping around it probably doesn't matter much.

A few rare plays that are worth a significant amount, you may not want to use your card because its not wort it.

By biggest pet peeve is people claiming outrageous things they can't back up. They make up all kinds of excuses why not. Even if you come up with a way around their excuses/reasons they make up more.

People who talk about tins they really ave no clue about and pretend to be experts and you know dam well any information they do have was mined from the internet.

I have seen a few occasions were someone has just slightly re-worded from something said on a different forum.

who cares, it's peanuts. But it doesn't

As far as Vegas goes, I'm not there often

I have probably personally been to 20x the amount of out of Nevada casinos in the 2 past years then you have.

If I include action I receive from partners who travel even more then I do it would be 50 or more times the amount.

I travel often. I go to other places at least once a month on average Including California, AC.

I can show examples of great Indian casino mail,

I have received great offers from lot's of different states including Washington Indian casinos as well.

No need for slot play, you can receive cash as well, it's just better to take the free play.

Even on roulette.

This is another pet peeve of mine. I hate it when people say good morning after midnight but before sunrise. When it is dark outside, it is evening or night, not morning. When the sun sets, it is evening or night.

Why don't anyone say good evening after 12:01 pm? Answer because they would be looked as being strange.

I don't think that people should think if it as being morning at 12:01 am.



To me morning vs evening is whether or not I've slept. And in iowa, with all the farmers and hunters, it'll be morning to them, but still dark.

Valid point except if a Iowian gets up at 9:30 pm and say "good morning", people would look at him like he didn't know the difference between night and day.

Another peeve I have are children that call their parents by their first name. I first came across this among gypsies. This practice is just stupid, rude, disrespectful and arrogant.

You don't get it. Even if I got a card, which I
won't, I never play long enough to be rated.
They would send me squat. But I hate comps,
so it doesn't matter. People spend so much
time worrying about them, fretting about a
free meal or free pack of smokes. I just shake
my head, they so totally don't 'get it'.

4/5 neighbors give their lawns buzz cuts and also fertilize and poison. I like to keep the grass higher because it helps keep it healthy, watered and fights weeds itself, and I'm the idiot. You should never cut the grass so short.

I get it, your low betting for a short period of time, that level of play is to low and won't warrant anything.

What you don't get is some people play more then you even +EV games and even in situations were the card turns a bad game into a fantastic one, yes even roulette. It turns into thousands of dollars in real money, not just comps. I'm not talking huge bets and bankrolls either. Under the right circumstances you can take a few thousand dollars and get back more in cash, from the free play then it's possible to lose.

I doubt you know exactly how free play and other things. Work you would probably be one of them guys willing to sell 2k in free play for 500 bucks. When i can guarantee $1800 min back.

It's not the level, it's the time. They don't give
comps to people who bet for 40 min. And I
don't play 'bad games', I don't need the casino
to give me back part of my losses in comps.
That's your game, bottom feeding and bragging
about it. Don't judge me on what you do.

how would you know, you don't use a card? Oh let me guess, you heard it on the internet. You asked a casino employee? We all know were that gets you.

I spent less then 40 min playing recently, won about 1k and got steak dinners for me Djatc, My GF and and another person. and I was offered rooms on top of it. So you just don't know how stuff works you just think you do.
