    I have more than one, but this one stands out the most, so far.:big_smile: Have you ever been searchin' the 'net and come across postage stamp sized image of something you're interested in and want to "zoom in" or "view a larger image" and when you click on it, the image opens in a full page frame with the same postage stamp sized image? The only thing larger is the frame.:angry:

    I've got to agree with that, just fustrating.
    One of my pet peeves is when I'm fishing with some one with a bait clicker and doesn't shut it off when there fighting a fish or just reeling it in. Its just always been a natural thing to me.

    I agree with that. Just makes me crazy when I see people trash the bank that way.
    I have been know to insist they clean it up when I see them. Of coarse that can be kinda dangerouse If you get the wrong people.

    I'd agree with that for sure.

    Jet skis and boats coming by fast when you are anchored out fishing. Especially if you are close to the bank or in a cove.

    People who get out of my boat and leave their trash for me to clean up. I keep trash bags onboard but they're too lazy to use them and they usually only make one trip with me.:eek:oooh::smile2::smile2: Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:

    while waving in that special way that says "You're number one"...at least I think that's what it means...everybody thinks I'm number one.

    Trash at the lake for sure pi$$es me off . Just last week I was at the lake and someone must have desided the lake was closer then the trash can . There was bread bags cups bait containers cans and 2 lantern propane tanks all in the water in front of a picnic table . They had to have just threw it in and left cause must of it was floating . I had to dip net it all out of the water . The conservation department patrols out there and have an office , but I think they just drive around or sit on their butts in the office soaking up air . I sent them a complaint but have heard nothing .

    I guess I have a few of them. LOL One is when someone is making a turn or trying to change lanes in front of you with not much room and they forget what that little lever on the left side of the steering column is for. Another thing is when I'm doing a bit over the speed limit, never more than 5MPH though. But I see someone pass me like I'm sitting still. I mean on the interstate doing 70 and they pass me like I'm not even moving. And they have their kids or even worse, grandkids in the car. Wonder what that's teaching them about following the laws. Just my opinion now, but those are 2 of mine.

    Trash is by far one thing that really bothers me. At times you feel like you have to care enough and pick up the trash for everybody otherwise your fishing area might close.

    Jet skiers...apparantly I'm not alone. This is a post from the Deep Creek Lake, MD fishing forum:

    "I hear that there is a proposal working its way through the state legislature to open a limited bowfishing season for jet skiers at DCL. Seems they have overrun the place, are disturbing the lake ecology, and that the herd needs thinning. If passed, the experimental season will be limited to the hours of 10 a.m. to noon on weekends and major holidays only, with a limit of one (1) per day and one (1) in possession, and only those jet ski operators 21 years or older are eligible for harvest. Jetskier tags will be issued by lottery, and will be available at Bill's Outdoors, Deep Creek Hardware, and the Discovery Center. Bowfishers are encouraged to responsibly dispose of the bodies, with donations either to medical science and/or emergency transplant services being suggested. Do not leave the bodies along the shoreline, in other words. It is thought that once word gets out, the population of jet skiers will become self-limiting. As for technique, boating bowfishers are required to be at anchor (no active pursuit is allowed) and the best method appears to be emulation of a calm and quiet family fishing outing. Shoreline blinds may be used as well, but it shall be unlawful to construct a blind in such a manner that it may appear to be a lakefront bar (no neon beer signs, ladies night solicitations, etc), as this is thought to constitute an unfair advantage. It should be interesting to see how effective this proposal will be restoring a measure of peace and sanity to the lake area."

    If only........

    My #1 pet peeve is when people agree to meet or call you at a certain time. They fail to call or show up much later. My thought is if you agree to a time or meet do your best to keep that promise or contact the waiting person.

    Agree, only I phase it a little different..... "Drivers using a cell phone while trying to drive."
    I can usually pick them out in traffic, they drive like they are drunk.

    And another of my hundred pet peeves... "People that are making a right turn and pull way over on the left like they are towing an imaginary 60 ft trailer.
