    Pet Peeves

    What are yours?

    Heres couple of mine.

    People abuse their library privileges and beyond.

    People treat me/others like me like a baby/child instead of adult.

    People whom are germophlic, spl (spelling) and beyond (in which I'm not quite sure of).

    And beyond

    I know I have several, but I can't seem to remember them all right now. The only one I can think of at the moment is people looking over my shoulder when I work

    Ok, I'm curious about this. Do you mean germophobic? Fear of germs? At first I read it as germophilic which would be a love of germs, right? Is that even a word? Do people who actually love germs exist?

    Basically, I meant is they fear and beyond along those lines. Then love them.

    Or worse: people who stand still at the top or bottom of escalators.

    I proudly abuse my library privileges.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    Excellent point. I mean, doesn't climbing an escalator defeat the purpose of the escalator?
