You don't like it? It's got a cop motor, a 440-cubic-inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters, so it'll run good on regular gas. Whaddaya say?

A friend of mine has one. Until the dealership had to call him in to have it rekeyed, he even had a key to every police car in the county. (My friend tested while an officer watched.)

Peeve: People who decide to announce their wedding on Facebook less than an hour of the actual event. And they're not in Vegas.

Those stickers on the back of cars and trucks (mostly trucks) that commemorate the passing of someone in their family or a friend of there. You know they won't be able to remove it when they need to sell it, and eventually someone fool will take it and they will be driving a car with a decal about someone who they know nothing about. This is what a gravestone is for.

Ugh. My god. I haven't seen them yet. Although I hate the rear of the car now being used as a kind of emotional billboard. Do you have taxi drivers who put the names of their children on the back of their cabs there?
Great. Now I know that the malodorous racist taking me home via every possible road in Scotland is breeding.

Peeve: Slideshows with inconsistent slides. Your text boxes should not be jumping all over the screen from one slide to the next; nor should they be changing font faces/sizes/weights if they contain the same type of content.

Also: people who come to black tie only events and are allowed in even though they aren't wearing a tux.

No, not common. It's a once-a-year occurrence. But the invitation clearly states "black tie only."

Logically, wouldn't that mean you're suppose to attend wearing nothing but a black tie? Or am getting confused with the parties Rors throws every Sunday night?

Peeve: people who don't wear clothes that fit. Ok, let's narrow that down a bit: fat people who don't wear clothes that fit. Still needs to be narrowed down somewhat. Fat people who wear clothes that allow parts of them to hang out the people do not want to see. IE: beer guts showing under t-shirts, gaps between pants and shirts that show butt crack and muffin top, women who REALLY SHOULDN'T be wearing low-cut tank tops doing so without a bra, short shorts on anyone with a BMI over 45.

Ha. Yes. To put it somewhat sexistly: fat tits =/= good tits.
