    rudeness

    Hi! Suddenly I've become interested in one question. What is your biggest pet peeves? As for me, I don't like rudeness concerning servers, when clients think that if they pay money, they can do everything with waiters or serving personnel. What about you?

    My biggest pet peeve is new forum members who post inane and pointless threads just to advertise their website.
    Man, I hate people like that.

    Oh...and pedophiles. I don't like them either.

    Wow. I can't believe you just said that. My nephew suffers from Dysphagia, and it is impossible for him to eat without making gurgling noises. It is sad that even in this enlightened age he still has to deal with insensitive people who are offended by his condition.
    Who are you to judge people who eat noisily?
    Where is your sense of compassion?

    He was only off by one measly order of magnitude.

    Georgie dear....
    "K" stands for 1,000. To 0.75K would be 0.75 x 1000, or 750.

    Thank goodness for formulas in programming tools. Without them, we'd have considerably less money.
