And the jerks who don't stop over the "sensors" at intersections which tell the light to trip. Most intersections in my area have them, but often are not "used". Go figure, right? It's a free tool and all one needs to do is stop above it for it to work.

This is more of a vent than a peeve but, I am so sick of WeatherTech commercials on TV an now in every YouTube video.
Their latest brainstorm invention is the phone holder that goes in your cup holder...so your phone is safely in the cup holder while you drive with scalding hot coffee in your hand, cuz...hey! no cup holder....BRILLIANT!

How do you know where the sensor is?

I cannot stand people that do not push there seats in at a restaurant when they leave of people that do not put shopping carts away. I hate navigating parking lots and trying to dodge errant carts.
Get yourself an mdb bumper. You can rearrange the carts from the comfort of your drivers seat. Lol

The older TB's, at least the EXT's, had a handle. Never used it though because I'm 6'2" :biggrin:

Oh, I don't own an EXt. Then again didn't know the GMT 360 had a trunk or boot. :biggrin: Mine has a tailgate with a cargo area...

Finger smudges are the least of worry on my truck hatch. They prolly improve the look.

My car has no handle on the trunk though.

There is a pocket in the bottom that is supposed to serve as a grab place to pull down the hatch. Never use it though so I have the dreaded finger marks :rolleyes:

Sometimes I use mine, usually when the lift gate is wet.

As for a pet peeve of mine: Whenever someone is ready to change lanes, or enter traffic from being stopped at a turn, as you're approaching... They don't pull out when there is plenty of room to get in and up to travel speed, but rather wait until you're almost right up on them, THEN they get in your lane and you have to slam your brakes to avoid an accident. :hissyfit:

People that drive 20mph slower than the posted speed limit, in the left lane, on the interstate.

Oh, I had a real pull handle that would hang down. I remember because I had to remove it each time to pull the panel.

Peeve: When you are clearly leaving enough space for someone to merge or change lanes and they just don't move over, don't accelerate to merge or just screw it up royally.

My buddies suburban has that.
Or when there clearly isn’t enough space and that bmw that flew all the way up the on ramp is trying to merge in front of you in bumper to bumper traffic. That really grinds my gears, hence the air horn. :laugh:
A couple peeves is calling the Trailblazer a Blazer or worst yet calling it a car.
I'm guilty of calling it a Blazer all the time, but I hate it when people call it a car. Even worse is when you call it a truck and someone tries to correct you saying that it's a car. :Banghead:

Must scare the bejeezus out of them bimmers!

My really personal pet peeve is when people tell me they hate winter, snow, cold and love to see the snow melt. Not everybody is a winter hater where some do like to snowmobile (me), ski, snowshoe, toboggan, winter camp, etc. Don't like it? Move south. This IS Canada!

Wisconsin man turns backyard into 'northern Wisconsin Dells,' complete with lazy river
Like most Wisconsinites, Randy Spiehs of Barron has endured a brutal winter.

It was difficult for his dogs to maneuver his backyard in all the snow, so he made paths for them to walk.
When the snow began to melt, he found an unexpected bonus: What looked like a "Northern Wisconsin Dells," complete with lazy river.

"So I've been snowblowing paths for the past couple months," Randy told WTMJ television station in Milwaukee. "[Thursday] I was looking into the backyard and told my wife it looks like we have a lazy river, and I said, 'I should go blow up an innertube.'"
Randy's creation has been shared on social media thousands of times, no doubt inspiring future backyard entrepreneurs.
Only in Wisconsin.
