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.

Cordelia, that last one REALLY peeves me! Or how about parents who let their children scream and cry in a restaurant without removing them so everyone can eat in peace? Really rude! (One exclamation mark)

You have touched on a good one, both of you. Then there's the parents who not only do all of that, but expect the staff to watch after their children, after all the parents are out for a night to relax.

And then, when they're done ruining everyone else's dining experience... they all go to the movies. Oh, JOY!

Who is talking about McDonald's? Screaming and crying children can be in just about any restaurant these days... I guess you don't go out that much...

this deserves a good old bump :)

Newest pet peeve - people who stop in the middle of bloody supermarket aisles talking whilst taking up every inch of space. Do these people not realise I havent got the time or patience to wait while they talk about the next door neighbour's uncontrollable child or how Mr and Mrs so and so are up to no good :)
