Inconsiderate/rude/mean people in general.  I hate it when someone is outright rude or mean to me or someone else. 


As a woman I do not automatically expect a man to hold a door open for me (though it is a nice and very much appreciated gesture -- well done to all of you guys who still hold the door open for a lady :)).  Although when I am carrying a baby, handling a toddler and/or pushing a stoller, common courtesy would dictate that you hold the door open for me.  I am not just talking about women with children.  People should hold the door open for 1) anyone who needs help, 2) the elderly, 3) anyone whose hands are full and 4) anyone who happens to be walking through the doorway behind them.   It also bothers me when I go through a door and I catch the door in one arm (while usually holding said infant/child in other arm) for someone behind me so they can grab the door and they waltz through like I'm the door man without so much as a thank you.    >:(

It also drives me crazy when I go to check out at a store and the clerk doesn't acknowledge my presence beceause he/she is too busy talking to a friend.  I usually make it a point to very clearly say "thank you for being so pleasant" when I get ready to leave.

Or when you let someone in line in traffic and they don't wave.  Common courtesy is in short supply lately.  Although I must say, people are much more polite here in NC then they were in DC :)

Ahhhhhh  I feel much better now -- thanks! ;D

I filled up at our local BJ's Warehouse yesterday and the members' price was $2.39  -- non members $2.47 -- the highest I ever recall seeing.

Beth (jadesfire) is likely going to want to challenge you on that title from time to time...  :P

No problem, there's plenty of room at the top for Beth ;)

(And no, I'm certainly not the one saying she is.  She would be the one saying that!  ;))

That's right -- Rule #1 -- we're the only ones who can call ourselves that :P    ;) ;)

Still addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper, would love to be drinking Coke Classic but when I drink a diet cola, it's diet pepsi :-\

I love Diet Vanilla Cherry Dr. Pepper - yummy! :)

No problem --  I'm keeping my eye on Darth Slothus ;)  Does seem like a great place to meet fellow fans.  Much nicer with a much stronger sense of camaraderie than some other places I've been.  Seems like everyone takes care of each other here and respects the fact that we are all just fans ;D

Even Vader's confrontation with him on Endor is a weird moment...  It's the first moment you see any level of humanity in Vader throughout the entire Saga really.  It's one of my favorite little parts of the classic trilogy though, no doubt.
Me too -- that conversation is one of my favorite scenes from the OT.  I love the resignation in Vader's voice when he tells Luke "It is too late for me, Son" :-[

Oh my god, that's hilarious!  But who said he's nearsighted?  Maybe he just thought he could jump a lot further than he really could...  ;)

Or maybe he thought he had his superhero cape on...... ;)

Zach -- from one Newbie to another -- welcome!  Seems like a great group here, despite Darth Slothus being a member ;)

True -- the robes do seem to be pretty common attire.  I didn't see the forest for the treest :)  But what, then, sets a Jedi apart in appearance (other than the lightsaber?)  What makes them so easily recognizable?  Their lightsabers aren't always apparent, are they?  It seems more common in the PT for Jedi to wear the robes while everyone else wears more fashionable attire.

Not sure if this belongs here, but since we're talking about Jedi going into hiding....  We were watching ANH last night and something so simple struck me.  If Obi-Wan was in exile why did he continue to wear his Jedi Robes?  Are they not a dead giveaway?  I have not read much EU but wasn't there a bounty placed on any remaining Jedi?  I always felt that a Jedi's robe was tantamount to a Priest's collar -- it is universally (gallactically? ;) recognized.  "Someone here to see you honey, Jedi, by the looks of him"

We've been catching reruns of Lost (missed it the first time around).  The only other show I always try and catch is Rescue Me with Denis Leary.  I'm looking forward to Nip Tuck this fall.  I"ll watch an X-Files rerun if I come across it.
