Question: "How many Christmas cards do you send? I send over 200!"
Answer: "Is that all? I wish I could get away with so few. I get a discount from the Royal Mail".
Result: One arrogant ego seriously bruised! LOL!

I'm posting this as me, not as a moderator, so I may have to give myself a stiff talking to.|
Quiz authors who assume that there has only ever been one Civil War, ie the American one.

And dogs who refuse to sleep on their own pillow. And Christmas music, especially "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".|

People who actually type out "y'all." "That's why I think y'all would etc." It's one thing if you're speaking and that's how you talk... but to make a conscious effort when typing it is less than intelligent. Nobody out here is saying "Wow... he's got a cool southern accent." You never see New Yorkers typing in "youse guys."|

When you ask someone to repeat themselves, and they keep saying the last couple of words of what they just said, when it's the first part you didn't catch.|
"mumble mumble next Tuesday?"
"I didn't get any of that, what?"
"No, the whole thing."
"Next Tuesday! Yes or no?"

People who ring you, have the wrong number and refuse to accept that they have the wrong number. They ask for someone, you tell them no-one of that name here, you must have the wrong number, they argue with you. I even had one guy accuse me of colluding with his ex to stop him speaking to her.|

I've been pretty good in the past about this, but lately I haven't double-checked that my mouse click registered as an answer and I end up missing more than I should in quizzes. Arrggh!|

Fruit flies. Fruit flies are small but annoying things.|

You would have loved it then, leelee. Friend and I went up to a Raider game, drove back, got my ice chest back from him, threw it into my apartment at the time, thought nothing of it.|
Didn't realize he left a banana in there.
And that was 3 months prior.
I smelled something funny one day, had noticed a couple fruit flies floating around but nothing out of the ordinary. But that smell. So I went investigating. On a hunch, opened up the cooler. Got a glimpse of what looked like a stomped dog turd and then a soccer ball sized dense CLOUD of fruit flies flew out of there. I threw the ice chest out the door as fast as I could but the damage was done.
No less than 1,000 of them throughout everywhere. That's more than you can walk around squashing with your thumb - a Sisyphusian effort. I did get clever, though, figured it works for roof rats, why not try it with fruit flies, would drink a beer and leave about 1/2 ounce left in the bottle - Corona worked best because of the long bottle, you could trap more of them. I would place that on the table nearby and let it sit overnight. It's a fine line, actually. They're attracted to the beer so they'll all crawl down the bottle but they'll multiply in it too so you gotta clear out those bottles often - just a matter of putting your thumb over the top and then putting it under the faucet.
Using this process, which, by the way was very efficient and hey, it gave me an excuse to grab a beer, it took 3 weeks to clear all those fruit flies out of there.
