    After puzzling over the directive that the printed side of the top sheet (which I assumed to be a sheet of paper) should face down, some googling informs me that it probably means bed sheets, and that there are actually people who care.

    Kaputnik, so then I only have to wash one side of my sheets at a time? Cool….Hmmmm….Ever wondered what the “side” of a sheet is? Sure there is one side or the other….But what do you call the edge of the edge of a sheet? It’s the side of the sheet, right? Do sheets have a front and a back? Or just a top and a bottom with very thin sides?

    Among my top pet peeves – People who don’t turn on their lights when driving in the rain. People who don’t signal when changing lanes. And, people who don’t accelerate up to speed when pulling onto a highway.

    The words “few” and “less” are NOT interchangeable! If something can be quantified, few is correct, if not, less. “I have a FEW books”, “There is LESS snow on the ground than yesterday”.Ditto, “fewer” and “lesser”.

    Kaputnik, I thought it was printer paper. I had forgotten how some people see a top and bottom side of bed sheets. Personally, I prefer the kind that are the same on both sides.

    One of my pet peeves is people who say, “One definition of insanity is repeating the same action and expecting different results.”

    I like to ask them, “How many times are you going to tell someone that and expect them to change their behavior?”

    Pet Peeves – I could write a book, but most of you kind folks have the same ones I have.

    When there is road construction, and a sign telling drivers to move left or right, some smarty-pants will sail up the closed lane at a gazillion miles an hour and then expect to be let into the line. Nope, and double nope.

    Don’t pull out if the car coming down the street will have to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting you. The center turning lane is NOT a pull out and merge lane.

    For me, this is a great example of why some citizens mistake opinions for facts.

    Someone corrects your grammar? Dismiss their point as a “pet peeve”, call them a “grammar Nazi” and keep making the same grammatical errors!

    I hear from friends who teach math it is even more fun when students think math is just opinions, not fact.

    (“Yes, Mr. Perry – I know in geometry we prove two shapes are the same with side-angle-side or angle-side-angle but I insist that we can do the same with angle-side-side even though you say that won’t work!”)

    Slow drivers in the “fast” lane, who are the same ones going 10-15 under the speed limit on a two lane, until there’s a passing lane, then they do 90mph so nobody can get around, then it’s back to blocking traffic!

    Which, just who will be programming “self driving cars”? Right, idiots.

    Then there are the voters who vote against their own best interests, and now we await January 20th.

    OK, how about people who wait until the light turns green and then let you know you are stuck behind a person who is turning left. And then there are the folks who apparently drive with one finger sticking out, so when they turn the steering wheel they activate the signal – after coming to a dead stop in the middle of nowhere.
