    This is more another source of amusement than a peeve but many of my neighbors have huge tractor type riding mowers.  This in itself is no big deal but most of the yards in this neighborhood are very small,  like a quarter to a half acre.  Many of these people barely have room to turn their mowers around.

When someone starts a new thread without looking to see if its already been brought up before.  People who do that are big jerks.

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler

   People who think New Jersey people all talk with a Brooklyn accent.  TV perpetuates this myth with shows like Jersey Shore.  In my entire life I have never met a native Jerseyite who spoke with a Brooklyn accent.  Not one.  Ever. In south and central Jersey we speak with a Philadelphia accent. 
     On a side note I grew up thinking there was no such thing as a Philadelphia accent.  We didn't have an accent; everyone else did.  I left the area for three years when I joined the army.  When I returned one of the first things I noticed was how thick a Philadelphia accent my father had.  I'm like "Dad, when did you start talking differently?"
