My Pet Peeves

If the video does not play for you, go to this link:


  1. Mitch, I would love to have seen the video; however, at both sites, it read "this video is private." Any other way to view it?

  2. Wow, I didn't expect that to be so funny. The TV thing drives me crazy. Your last sentence (or so) about Facebook had me laughing out loud, literally (no really, literally).

  3. Mitch:
    Well done, on your first video message. I'm sure that most people enjoyed it because your personality comes across so keenly, as well as your intellect!
    Enjoy your day!

  4. I just found your blog and I'm glad I did. Thanks for starting my day with a laugh! :-)

  5. Matt,

    I'm glad you thought it was funny. This represents only a small fraction of all the weird crap that runs through my head!


    My intellect and personality notwithstanding, I was horrified when I watched the video footage and saw just how damned old I've become!


    Welcome. Tell all your friends :-)

  6. OK, OK. I won't talk to dead people on fb if you'll let me chew ice and slam cupboard doors!

  7. James' favorite misuse EVER is irregardless!!! So....we say it all the time, and I have developed a realistic fear of using it in public. Ginny

  8. Daphne,

    Your comment has made me aware that there are probably hundreds, maybe thousands, of potential, yet unidentified, pet peeves out there for me. I think I would rather have you talk on Facebook to dead people than to chew ice or slam cupboard doors near me :-)


    There are so many language faux pas to choose from (yes, I checked that I used the correct plural form of faux pas). I am pleased I'm not the only one who hates "irregardless."

  9. Love it, Mitch. :)

  10. Mitch, Didn't expect to, but loved your video blog. It, Mitch. And so funny! Very refreshing.

  11. I have this bookmarked to watch at home later, unfortunately I don't have audio on my pc at work.

    I have a lot of pet peeves too. Some things just drive me up the wall.
