So this has ALWAYS been a pet peeve of mine; since the beginning of my Sleuthing.

*NOTE: This is not as big of one as the waiter/waitress 'fiasco' was*


Take a look at Sleuth Admin's detective page, for example.

"Politics
Order o Socrates: Good(10)
Arcanum Brthrhd: Good(10)
Cosa Nostra: Poor(-3)
Eastern Triads: Good(10)
Circle of Light: Poor(-2)
Green Hand: Good(10) "

Notice that of is "o", not "of" in Order of Socrates
Notice that Brotherhood is shortened, and the word Dies is completely absent
"La" is missing in La Cosa Nostra
Isn't it "The" Green Hand, "The" Eastern Triads?


Now I know this was done because of margin widths, but can it not be fixed in any way? It's not only annoying, but also can be confusing as to what the factions are called. Perhaps they could even be shortened to just OS, LCN, DAB, GH, CoL, and ET? (Although that would be very confusing as well)



Just something that's always bothered me.

My pet peeve is people who wear dentures, and get up in the morning and forget to put them in.

When they speak, their lips pucker like there being sucked into their mouth. eeewwwwhhhhh, eeewwwhhhh, eeewwwhhhh!!!!!

I have to admit all these flavoured coffees are driving me nuts... I had forced on me by a well meaning friend the other day a Caramel Latte WTF? Apparently because "you like caramel and you like coffee"... so naturally I would like this! I like "cats and golf" but I don't want to tee up a kitten! (Well not today)

So when I took my first tentative sip and that sickly sweet ichor touched my lips I instantly knew it wasn't for me as my face contracted up into something approaching Munch's 'The Scream'.

My friend said I was being melodramatic... moi? But she did pop back and get me an espresso :)

It really ticks me off when I go to a restaurant with someone and order what I want off the menu and my dinner companion then tries to persuade me that I should have ordered something else for the rest of the evening. ARGH!!! The only solace is to drink a LOT of wine and eat quickly.
