Anyone have anything that just aggravates them? Personally when watching and reading some archery/bow hunting info and people refer to “ running “ x sight or broadhead etc all I can think is what a putz!! That and when my wife watches regular definition channels when we pay extra for HD… that is all Ty for letting me vent.

21-May-22
My peeves are wild, free range peeves. I do not believe peeves should be domesticated.

I don’t “run” sights or broad heads, I more accurately hike them.

Ironically, I do sometimes “run” my hiking boots when training.

Curiously, I would prefer it if many of the shows my wife and children watch would be “no definition” TV.

Have fun Shug!

Litter. Not returning shopping carts. Not watching your kids in a parking lot. Not raising your kids. Stupid people trying to make a statement when they don't know how to articulate their thoughts. Not closing lids correctly on items in the refrigerator. Not emptying drink cups/ bottles before throwing them in the trash. Baseball parents that think they know the rules. Coaches that argue calls in rec league beyond what is expected in a rec league. People sticking their noses in business that is not their's.

Amen, Guardian! My contribution: People who leave their phone number on my answering machine faster than I can write it down, i.e., a ten-digit number plus a four-digit extension in 0.43 seconds. Bonus: when they mumble their name and/or company.

From: Bake
21-May-22
Where to start?

1. People driving slow in the left lane. Drives me insane.

2. People leaving reviews for gear after just receiving it or after very little use. I’ve literally seen reviews on cabelas that said “looks great out of the box. Can’t wait to use it!” Like WTF?!?!? You haven’t even USED it yet and you’re posting a review?!?! Part of this is the fault of companies. I bought a pair of Kuiu pants about a month ago and they sent me an email asking for a review. How can I review an item after a month?!

3. Dirt nap. Swamp donkey. Harvest. “Clip” (it’s a magazine you dumb&@$).

I’ll think of more

From: Bake

I’m with BTM too. Happens all the time. Mumble name and then say phone number at the speed of light.

When people use the word "irregardless".

Slow drivers in the left lane is a good one. My latest one that sends me nuts is people bringing their "fur babies" into grocery stores and restaurants. Oh, and calling them "fur babies." Us

Another is almost all of the hunting shows on TV. I truly think that these things are nothing but ammunition for the anti's to use against us. I'll probably get flamed, but hey....personal peeves, right?

From: Meat Grinder
22-May-22
People posting online using "could of", "should of", "would of" instead of the correct contractions "could've" (could have), "should've" (should have), "would've" (would have). Like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

When people lie to themselves

From: BTM
22-May-22
Incorrect use of the word "literally." 99% of the time it's superfluous or flat-out incorrect. A few examples from hunting shows: “My stomach was literally tied in a knot.” “The buck came to us literally on a string.” “My heart literally jumped out of my chest.” “The buck literally walked on top of us.” “The deer literally turned itself inside out as it escaped.” “My head literally exploded when I muffed the shot.” “The bull literally vanished into thin air.” “We were literally sitting ducks.”

When people lie to others.

Corner crossing is considered trespassing.

Greedy politicians on both sides that put themselves ahead of country and their constituents, and the constituents that continue to vote for them.

My household hasn't saved $2500/year in health care cost since the passing of the affordable care act, as promised.

Poor workmanship and lack of care about doing a good job. I see this a lot in my line of work with new home construction. The bar has definitely been lowered. It's sad some of the crap that is being built that then gets passed off as acceptable.

The demise of the manual transmission.

Nearly every pet peeve posted above.

22-May-22
People are my pet peeves.

Some examples are canceling a hunting or fishing trip. I must be a doozie. Because I’ve had that happen about a half dozen times.

I don’t like liars.

I hate it when people are late. My time belongs to me. If I decide to give it to someone, I see their situation the same way and make sure I’m on time. I expect the same in return.

I can’t stomach disrespect.

And, last of the short list I’m sharing, I really have a hard time with people who blunder through life as if it’s a video game. There ain’t no reset button. Better do the best to get it right the first time. There may not be a second.

From: DanaC

" The demise of the manual transmission. "

hehehe, my clutch master cylinder failed yesterday on my way to a shoot in RI. 60 mile towing bill, never got to fling arrows. Stuck with no wheels until Monday, need a rental until my mechanic can even 'look at it.' Last effing manual tranny I'll ever own.

From: sticksender

The older I get, the easier for silly trivial things to be annoying. At least I've passed step one....admitting the problem. Step two is remembering I'm healthy, have a great family, and can hunt nearly as much as I want.....the glass is more than half full.

22-May-22

People who don’t have the courtesy at least let you know that they’re going to be late, or even worse, not going to be able to make it to a scheduled job/meeting. 99.9999% of everyone has a cell phone anymore. I totally get it that things can come up, but at least, have the decency to try to let the other guy know, cell service notwithstanding. Drives me bat$hit crazy.

"I seen it"

Liberals that have allowed/promoted wolves decimating the deer herd in northern Wisconsin and destroyed deer hunting.

Deer hunters that try to be all cool like the YouTube heros and say "I have a set in there" instead of a "stand".

Deer hunters who bait on public land and stake claims to public land and the deer that they are attempting to domesticate.

People who ride their UTV/ATV/truck anywhere they want and ignore road closures.

22-May-22
According to Merriam-Webster, harvest: to gather, catch, hunt, or kill (salmon, oysters, deer, etc.) for human use, sport, or population control. Pet peeve - know-it-alls who clearly don't. Can't we all get along?

22-May-22
People who can't be on time, it's just rude. I have parted ways with several hunting partners over it, they don't even have enough gumption to call and say they are going to be late. Once that happens they get left behind.

Idiots in hunting camps who don't open the actions on their rifles, and then sweep everyone in camp with their muzzles. Also, outfitters who allow such carelessness.

Also "hunters" who party all night and keep the rest of the camp from sleeping. (Apparently, they came to drink, party, and escape the old lady rather than actually hunt.)

I come here to hear hunting stories, see pictures, discuss equipment, etc. I have leaned much and been greatly entertained over the years, but the political hijacking of virtually every thread, no matter what the subject, has left me so disgusted that I have reduced my visits to Bowsite by roughly 90%. It has really ruined this experience for me. I am able to make up my own mind about politics and I come here(or used to come here) to get away from the mindless babble I hear from both sides of the media. I also have one grammatical comment about something I see constantly here. I don't come here to get "advise" I come here to get "advice." I might also hope that at times someone will "advise" me of a better way to do something. I will continue to visit here, but I find myself only opening threads that don't sound political, which usually ends in disappointment. I can't believe I'm the only one who feels that way and I think Bowsite is a much lesser experience than it was only a few years ago. Good luck to everyone in the draw and on your hunts this fall.

Be careful out there brother, been driving trucks for 23 years now, logged well over 2 million miles, and road rage is real. Seen some horrible accidents as a direct result of it.

"""Intentionally""" escalating a situation with another driver is perhaps as stupid a thing as one can do on the road......

"So Ricky.......... What your saying is that you'll instigate an argument with your vehicle out on the road , similar to the same as on bowsight.

not in the slightest. if im passing someone on the left...its because they are going slower than me...which is usually a few mph over the speed limit. if someone is going substantially faster than me...thats their choice but theyll have to wait until i get around the slower vehicle. if someone chooses to go 90 mph...does that mean i have to speed up to 90 so as not to piss them off? who is initiating the argument? im already out in the left lane...its them that comes up on me flashing their lights and honking their horn. now, if im in the left lane doing less than the speed limit...im the jerk.

2 hundred miles or 2 million miles...if you are traveling that fast in a commercial truck...not only are you already breaking the law (which in my state is 10mph less than cars on the expressway)...you are a dangerous a**hole.

Ricky Here's a road rage incident I unfortunately witnessed. The Salisbury MD bypass. 65 mph posted speed limit.

Tractor trailer in right lane more than likely governed @ 65,,,many are..... Old man """SLOWLY""" passing in left lane.

2 suv's from CT going to a school sports event somewhere, had go team & all kind of stuff in chalk paint on the windows.

The old man took an excessive amount of time to pass the truck.......by this time the suv driver was enraged.......when the old man finally got in the right lane in front of the truck, the suv driver got in the right lane in front of the old man and slammed on the brakes, the old man overreacted and ended upside down in the ditch, the Tractor trailer locked his brakes & jack knifed the 2nd suv was in the ditch in the medium.

Lots of wrongs happened, #1 the old man should've never been in the left lane going 1-2 mph faster than the truck, #2 the truck could've completely de escalated the situation by simply slowing down for 1 minute. Absolutely the suv driver lost his composure,,,road rage,,,this driver never should've been transporting children,with such poor mental composure.

simple...one vehicle is at fault for the entire accident. nothing...let me repeat...nothing would have happened if the guy in the suv hadnt done what he did...period. everyone else was doing what they should have been doing. the truck driver did nothing wrong. the old man did nothing wrong. only the suv driver did something wrong.

"I could be wrong, but I get the impression that you somehow you get some form of pleasure, being the old man in the left lane......"

you are wrong...i dont play games in an automobile.

now let me ask you a question. are you suggesting that in order to pass someone on the left...i must break the law? how many mph is it acceptable to break the law by in order to keep the guy behind me from getting mad? 5mph? 10mph? 20 mph?

if youre a commercial driver and you dont know the answer to those questions...you are a dangerous a**hole.

31-Dec-23
"Just get out of the left lane Ricky, it's simple the the person will go by ya and you'll never see them again, no harm no foul..."

thats exactly what i do...just as soon as im a safe distance past the person im passing. what would you suggest...hit my brakes and get back in behind him so the person can pass me?

if im already in the left lane passing someone...and you come up on me going 10...15 or 20 mph faster than me... would you rather i slow down even more so i can get back in behind the car im passing? or would rather i run that car off the road?

wouldnt the prudent thing be for you to take your foot off the gas a little until i get around?

i have news for you...the guy going substantially faster than traffic in general is the one putting "people lives on the line." if the guy in the right lane is going 70...and im passing him going 75...and some jackweed comes up on us going 90...its relatively easy to figure out who the "Stupid, freakn stupid people" are "playing Russian Roulette with a loaded gun..."

Ricky........not going it get in a pissing match with you.

Basic driving etiquette.......

Keep right except to pass.

Slower traffic keep right.

Ride right pass left.

If a vehicle is in the left lane only going slightly faster that the vehicle being passed ,,,it's questionable if the vehicle should even be it the left lane at all.

As far as you saying the truck did nothing wrong. I strongly disagree. The professional driver should have disarmed the situation,,,

Here's an example that happens quit often,,, your going down the road, a lane ahead is ending, it's clearly marked,,, the driver beside you for one of many reasons fails to acknowledge their lane is ending..........now you have two choices, you can continue on without any preventative action and allow a potential accident to occur. Or you can take action to prevent a possible situation ....it's simple as that. Let off the gas, allow the dumbshit to get in front, "and you controlled the situation" eliminating a possible accident. It's called driver awareness and it's expected 100% of the time by professional drivers.

In the situation I described above the tractor trailer driver failed to control a situation he 100% had the opportunity to control,,,,,, in fact I was just laying back thinking to myself man just slow down & let these dummies go by.

He had ample time to defuse the situation,,, and failed to do so. Your comment makes me glad you don't ride around with 80k on your back. Ya honestly don't have a clue of the responsibility involved.

So, here’s a situation on the turnpike in WV. It goes thru some pretty steep mountains. I normally drive in right lane except to pass but thru the mountains I can’t pick up Sirius/XM radio signal in right lane. I can pick it up in left lane. So if I go the speed limit so I’m not backing up legal drivers that aren’t speeding is it cool to drive in left lane so I can pick up satellite radio ?

"Ricky use some common sense and common CURTESY and let the car go by, you haven't a clue why he's speeding, it could be an emergency, you're an azz..."

ill ask again.

im already in the left lane passing a slower car. a car comes up on me at a much faster rate of speed.. what am i supposed to do? am i supposed to speed up even faster to satisfy him? slow down even more and try to tuck back in behind the car im passing... which will piss him off even more? or do i continue at my current speed until im a safe distance past the car im passing and merge back into the right lane? or i guess i could just run the guy im passing off the road.

i can assure you there is only one correct answer here....and the only azz is the guy coming up on me at a high rate of speed.

Good grief Timex. Did you not see that Ricky said multiple times he was passing. I agree with Ricky that if the idiot driving way too fast, tailgating, and flashing lights can wait a few seconds until he merges right. It's the reckless idiot who is being aggressive.

Poor planning on your part is not an emergency on mine.

31-Dec-23
"Ricky, were you a hall monitor in school? Just curious..."

quite the opposite really. i suggest you go back and read the thread. all i did was post a "pet peeve" of mine...

"people who tailgate or flash their bright lights in the left lane because even though im passing another vehicle...im not going 20 mph over the speed limit like they would like."

...and it was the usual suspects that take issue with everything i post that decided to turn it into a pissing match.

i was very clear about the situation i was referring to and others had to try to turn it into everything but...just so they could argue.

I generally make sure there isn't a faster moving vehicle coming up on me, and I have plenty of time to pass, before I move into the left lane.

"I generally make sure there isn't a faster moving vehicle coming up on me, and I have plenty of time to pass, before I move into the left lane."

i do too...it just doesnt always work out that way...people can come up on your pretty quick...especially when youre passing more than one vehicle...or the vehicle youre passing speeds up a little when they realize youre passing...women on the phone love to do that.

I hear you. Even worse than the jackasses who tailgate and flash their lights at you, when you are already driving over the speed limit, are the idiots who pass you, move back into the right lane in front of you, then slow down. I guess where we differ is this:

"...not to mention if he honks his horn or flashes his lights...hell be surprised how long it will take me to bet back over. :)

I usually try to accommodate the impatient jerks by getting back over to the right as quickly as I can do it safely, even if it means speeding up a little more.

"We all know the difference" between someone getting in the hammer lane, getting on the gas getting it done, then getting back over.

As opposed to someone that's cruise control is 1/2 a mph faster than the vehicle being passed,,,,,, they spend minutes doing something that could've been done in seconds.

Don't know about yall but I figure it's good to mash the gas on a vehicle every now & then.

For the people that like to take their time passing or won’t get over or move if someone honks: what if that person has an emergency?

We live 25 miles from the nearest ER. memorial day in 2018 I believe. My 6 year old daughter crashed her Atv. Gaping wound in her forehead the size of a quarter. She’s screaming. Bleeding everywhere.

I’m driving as fast as I can to the ER on a divided highway that sees a lot of lake traffic. Guy in the left lane won’t get out of the way. Then he sees I’m in a hurry so he slows down and won’t let me by.

I had an emergency. He was being a jerk.

I’m still upset about it. I was just about to the point of intentionally running him off the road when we got to the ER. wish I could meet that jerk today

Bake, I had a similar issue, only with one of our dogs that got hit by a car. The nearest animal hospital is over an hour away. I was pushing my pickup to its limits, flashing, honking, and riding the ass of every vehicle I came up on. It was infuriating how many people were either oblivious to my efforts to get around them, or intentionally wouldn't let me pass. Ultimately, our pup's injuries were too serious and we had to put him down. Ever since then, I don't automatically assume every excessive speeder is just being a dangerous a-hole, and I make every effort to let them pass.

You 110% enjoy poking the bear on this forum......

Just a hunch,,, but I'd guess you do the same on the road , taking your sweet time in the hammer lane, imposing your will upon others because you feel they are being dangerous,,,,

The reality is holding someone back that's in a hurry is creating 10x more danger than just letting them go by.

People that correct my grammar. They done and went spent money and time on learning 2 words when one word is all that was needed. Time wasted where they could’ve using their own brain to get more common sense. Really not a pet peeve cause it all works out good. They’s all proud of themselves which makes them feel good and it makes me laugh later which makes me feel pretty good too.

On the hunting part though it’s people using phrases to justify what they be doing. Like when they wound a deer in 80 degree weather in the evening and they back out using the term “ It’s the right thing to do “ like they’re respecting the deer. They ain’t respecting what the animal was put on this earth for in the first place…they’re just respecting what’s on top of that animals head. Just call it like is people…quit trying to sugarcoat it.

My #1 Bowsite pet-peeve is seeing where RTCG enters a thread, and within just a couple posts gets into a big pissing match over some meaningless jot or tiddle in another's comment....after awhile, the pissing match boils down to just three or four pissers, which dominates the thread for eternity.

Md2bintn: I guess it depends on how you define "Professional". True, not every driver has a college education or looks as sharp as the Maytag repair man, however I've met hundreds of big truck drivers who have a million miles, or more, of accident free safe driving. Add in a commitment to the job plus some decent customer service traits and you've got a "Professional" driver. As much as I dislike Walmart for keeping China in business, their drivers are professionals, and most earn over $120k a year.

And sadly, just as in any other profession, there's a few boneheads as well.

I can't stand tail gaiters. Get off my azz or go around. I even move over in my lane (and sometimes slowdown) so they can see it's clear to go around. If you back off 2 seconds worth of distance, guess what. You'll get there two seconds later. Oh, and don't take my front bumper off reentering my lane also. That takes away my "clear stopping distance"

Guys wanting every inch of antler counted, but still like that "empty" spread measurement. :-)
