Road construction.  Every major artery I have to/from work is affected this year because of this.  Also ticks me off when days/weeks go by and there's never anybody out there working on said closed roadways.  My those are some pretty orange cones though.

People that post "wow, just wow" and "easy pass" in forum threads.  Easy Pass is a turnpike payment option and "wow, just wow" doesn't sound right even in my head let alone outloud...reading just sounds goofy.

Halloween Pet Peeve - people who take their kids out Trick or Treating every year but fail to put/hand out candy.  Our whole family goes together and we leave a big bowl on the porch with a cute note - people seem to respect it and only take 2 or 3 pieces b/c there is always a bit of candy left when we get back - then I just dump the reserves in the bowl so people don't ring the bell when we are (trying) to settle the kiddos down for bed.  It is the same damn families every year.  >:(

Pet Peeves: Halloween Edition

Good times with this.  Teenagers not in costumes thinking they're A) intimidating, and B) going to get candy from me.

Next up, costume contests and the jerkoffs who vote in them.  Don't get me wrong, I dig a good party with a contest like this, but why does the cave man/woman always win, or the lame cliche costume of the year (usually a politician, or a dead dictator/public figure)?  If skin is all that gets you going, go a titty bar and enjoy.  Halloween costume parties are fun to watch slutty chicks wear the uniform they want to wear all year long, but how do you let them win the contest?  Guys can be such losers.

Lastly, cheap candy...  People give out some really ****** stuff anymore.  When I was a kid, you'd get a decent haul on just your neighborhood, and the candy was usually decent quality.  Now though, man, people just suck.  They get the crummies candy, half of it old, and a lot of it winds up getting tossed because it's not really good anymore.

I'll add one last one...  ******bag gangs of kids trying to act, again, intimidating, in the line to get into the local haunted houses...  It's actually wound up being a major issue and shut down some of the old, better places that used to be here.  Thankfully the best one here has sort of a security patrol of costumed people who will also shut kids up and keep them in line.  :)  Plus it's an awesome haunt.  Love that place and wish I could make a 2nd trip this year.

Oh, i got one. Some little third grade punk across the street came over and smashed our two pumpkins last week right on our doorstep in broad daylight. Luckily our neighbor saw it and came over right away and dragged the kid home to his parents. We didn't even know what had happened until the Dad came over later with the kid to apologize. My wife and I were out and my Mom was over babysitting and she told us our daughters both came to the door and were in tears because they had spent hours decorating them. What a ****** lesson that was for them...people suck.

Ah, my favorite part of the trick-or-treating bull****... the clowns (not in costume) that show up at midnight wanting free candy. They are never from this part of town.

Let's hope Little Billy Corgan learned his lesson.

(Joking aside, yeah, that did suck.)

I live in the country, no side walks, no trick or treaters. Aside from watching stupid scary movies, I don't do Halloween.

I'm in the boonies too but we still get some kids...  My road the houses are a little closer together from my place down, and that's about a half mile of road where I used to do well as a kid.  Now nobody leaves lights on anyway and those that do give out crap.

My gf's kids schemed to go to the expensive housing plans and hope they had good stuff but I swear theirs was even worse.

Wow, what disappointing Halloween experiences!  We've never had out pumpkins smashed and with the kids just starting kindergarten, it's a really fun time to experience trick or treating through their eyes.  I love the costumes and the excitement and the counting candy at the end of the night.  I guess my only pet peeve are the really old kids that come around looking for a handout.  I might be old-fashioned, but if you're old enough to drink you're too old to trick-or-treat.

I think most of us are at the age to get that one!

Well heck, just go to the store and look at the candy bundles they sell. I remember when you could get a pack of nothing but Kit Kats, Skittles, Snickers, M&Ms, etc. Now they sell all of this "mixed value pack" crap that's like half gum.

I'm in that weird part of my early 20's where Halloween is basically another excuse to go get drunk. And I wait and get my candy on November 1 when it's half off. :D
