People who don't read the replies to iRV2 posts before posting. People read the original post and respond so you get the same answers over and over. Minor, petty I know, but it bugs me for some reason.

One thing that bugs me is when people read the OP and answer, but do not check if someone has already offered their answer or made that statement before...

Just messing with you UFO Pilot.

I agree, often times it makes for a lot of repetition on a thread, but my take away is a bit different.

If I come upon a question in a thread, and there is a response, it has a certain value. If a couple people independently come up with the same idea or similar ideas on the solution, I feel it may have more gravitas. Additionally, I have seen a question asked, and then a poster respond with a solution that I think I understand. Later, a different poster offers a similar solution but worded differently, and often times I not only understand the solution better, but understand the first offer of the solution in a new way that I had not gotten from first reading.

Lastly, I have seen questions, started typing and gotten distracted, or even just long winded as is my nature (Brevity and I have not met), so by the time I have posted my original response, another may have also posted it but got there ahead of me, because of my lack of speed.

Lol. An employee who is actually too lazy to use the computer, instead of an employee who is too lazy to do anything else but use the computer, is an entirely new category of lazy employee.

Asked in the Office, and they said it was just a lazy attendant that was only looking at the computer for reservations and not checking the cancellations, she said they had about 20 spaces available that night and apologized as they are all trained to check for cancellations. Lazy people now that's a "Pet Peeve".

Pet Peeve are the birds that like to build nest on my coach. First pictured one is is up front next to the windshield washer fluid bottle. Next one is on the hitch.


Just found the one right on the hitch . Knocked it off last night and it was back this morning. Knocked it off just before going to Easter Sunday Service, and when we returned home another nest was there! We are heading out tomorrow morning and I fully expect to see a bird trying to catch us with straw in its mouth saying "hey, wait for me!"

Okay, this will upset the pet owners, but the people who drive around with Buffy on their lap, shoulder or between them and the steering wheel. It's an accident waiting to happen. Maybe someday they will have to have the dog's jaw removed from their forehead after an airbag deploys.

You have airbags inside your coach?

We do a lot of boondocking and I have problems with people that pull in and park 20' away from me, run generators day and nite, let their yappy dogs run thru my camp lifting a leg here and there, ect. You've got 20+ F#$%@ acres to camp in and you got to camp on top of someone else. If you want that go to an RV park.

Stupid people who block you in a long gas station lane so you can't get out, and they can't pull all the way in to have the gas pump hose reach their intake. They just sit there and stare at you and don't have the decency (or sense) to back out of the way so you can get out and they then can pull in.



This happened to me today.

Agree that bird nests would be an agrivation. Birds fighting with mirrors, and pooping all over is also a hassle. But for "nests", I have found wasps to be the worst... Painful...
