Catsup?  CATSUP???! Did you really just mis-spell ketchup in the pet peeves topic?!  You’re a brave one Rat Man! LOL Grin

I rarely if ever misspell anything.

  It might be an age thing.  When I was a kid it was always spelled catsup. I think ketchup is a modernized version of the word.

Blackflies are awful. I'm very happy they don't make it as far south as Jersey.  Such a tiny thing yet they draw blood.  Down the Shore in the Summer we have Greenheads... a vicious, vile bug. Their bite stings almost as  much as a bee sting.  Greenheads are big, mean, and can bite you through clothing.  If you don't really clobber them when you swat them they just laugh at you and swat you back.  They seem to love insect repellent.  Often your only option is to leave.

People who hang their toilet paper rolls backwards. WTH is wrong with you? Below is the only way to hang a toilet paper roll. The other way is obviously backwards.  Are you blind?

   Previews that give away the whole show or movie.   Like, you just showed me all of the best scenes.  Why watch it now?

   Old Westerns when someone gets shot in the shoulder.  They blow it off like it was nothing. "Shucks, it's just a shoulder wound.  You'll be fine in a few days."  If you take a 45 slug to the shoulder you won't be fine in a few days.  You could bleed to death or die of shock or infection.  Chances are that shoulder will never be the same again. A 45 is no joke.

Edit:  the same thing often happens in war movies.  "Are you OK?"  "I'm just hit in the leg. I'll be fine."  In the real world that leg is badly mangled and will most likely never be the same again.

Germaphobes;
    They amuse more than annoy me but I feel they bear mentioning here.  They run around with their hand sanitizer, wipes, and sprays and believe they are much healthier than the rest of us.
     The air you breathe is full of germs.  The food you eat, everything you touch, drink, etc. is covered in and full of germs.  There are billions of germs in your body at any given moment. Get real. Yes, we should wash our hands after going to the bathroom, bathe or shower regularly, change our underwear, take out the garbage, etc..  Beyond that you're sucking seawater and looking very foolish.

you're showing the backwards way to load toilet roll. Obviously it's meant to hang down the front NOT the back Smiley

I will remedy this in other people's houses, oh yeah lol

One thought I always find mind blowing is that we are actually walking ecosystems. Not only that but our body weight is made up more of "foreign" cells than our "own". I used quotation marks because the prevailing theory for the existence of mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell...) is that they're an ancient bacteria that got absorbed into some early organisms and just... stayed there. It could be argued that they aren't "supposed" to be there and it's just a happy accident that they stuck around, have been beneficial and been passed on. Then there is all the bacteria in your gut which has been found to influence people's behaviour and mood. Should we include our gut bacteria when we say "I"? Existential crisis here I come!

I guess most people who had a longer antibiotics therapy can tell a story about that, regarding mood as well as ... mode of operation of your gut ...  Lips Sealed

Germaphobes;

which may contain the annoying species of antibiotics-overusers... It's not just silly, it's outright dangerous for you as well as for the public health.
