    I am sorry. My daughter goes crazy walking with me anywhere because she says I am always doing this. I do not even realize I do it but I hear I do!
    (Stop in the middle)

    Pet peeves - Yes I agree with many but when I saw this post nothing came to mind.

    This is for sure my biggest peeve. If you stop right in front me to read/write a stupid text I have no problem "accidently" running right into you. I've done it before and I'll do it again.

    • Piling on about broken escalators and other people movers.
    • People who rush a full elevator with closing when there are 7 other fast and speedy ones. There is usually another one on the ground floor ready to load. I'm at the point where I am going to start holding door close.
    • People who don't put their tired kids to bed or have them in the casino while they gamble.
    • Traveling with people so cheap they won't spend even $10 a meal. Traveling companions need to be in sync on stuff like that.
    • People who diss you for gambling.
    • People who diss others who use the shuttle as cheap. Hello, some people are done fooling with cabbies for more reasons than the tunnel!
    • People who diss you for using coupons. Yeah, I am using the money I saved for the slots. Get over it!
    • People who think being intoxicated is an excuse to act like jackholes. They tend to sober up when security wants to 86 'em!
    • People who discourage car rentals because they think every one in Vegas drinks as much as they do. I have seen people told not to rent a car for family vacations filled with offstrip excursions and advised to spend extra money on cabs and tours instead because the person posting a response likes to drink. It's like Vegas forum malpractice or something.
    • And finally, TA. I don't know why I look at that site anymore. It's filled with contributors with mean girl attitudes and lemmings who follow them. You would end up with a very pricey vacation with cookie cutter experiences listening to them.

    A variation on this theme (and maybe a defense of people "pushing forward"):

    I hate people getting off the elevator that take a step off and stop, blocking the people trying to getting on. The doors close before anyone can get on. That is why I will usually step forward as soon as the door opens and hold the door until people get off and the next people get on. And if you are getting off, hold the door until someone else gets on and holds the dorr for the next load.

    The thing that is starting to irritate me in LV is that getting around the strip is getting more and more difficulte becauase of the all the obstacles designed to drain you of your money. Between the vendors, characters, homeless folkds, time share hawkers, and now Ballys plans more shops at the prime intersection, walking is becoming difficult!

    OK, I have to admit I am with the "elevator" people. This really aggravates me! But when I am in Vegas, I like to:

    1. Laugh at the drunks (including myself)
    2. Stop to see what the gawkers are staring at
    3. Smoke one or two (not a regular smoker, but)
    4. See the "broken escalator" as an exercise opportunity
    5. Give a bum $5
    6. Try a game or two that I might not be familiar with but have always wanted to try
    7. Leave my worries at home and, like Frankie says... "Relax".

    Heading there in January for my son's 21st birthday! YAY!!!

    I had a layover in McCarran this past Tuesday afternoon. An older couple put money in a .25 cent WOF and hit a spin. The machine is beep beep beeping at them and they are just staring at each other.
    I got up from my seat, walked over to them and pointed at the Spin button and said you need to hit the spin button. Then I pointed up at the Wheel and said then look up here to see what you won.
    I sat back down and watched as they won 50 credits +$12.50. He cashed out (funny he knew how to do that) and they moved down to the next machine and hit another spin this time for 200 credits +$50.00.
    He just turns and looks at me with a smirk on his face sort of like saying thank you but in another way like saying yeah buddy who's your daddy! He must have felt like a highroller haha!

    These are general peeves, but they seem to happen very common in Las Vegas.

    1. On an escalator, when a group of people get to the top (or bottom) they just stand there and STOP! Everybody behind them runs into them. Ditto with a whole gaggle of people in the aisle area of any casino, when they just STOP and everyone behind runs into them. Move over, then stop! Jeesh!

    2. Why do people insist, when they take a photo of their friends or kids or whatever, that they shoot crosswise against the stream of moving human body traffic? Then, some do-gooder will try to stop the passers-by and the congestion gets worse! There are gazillions of places in Las Vegas to shoot without blocking traffic, and if you're in a traffic pattern, shoot with the stream of traffic, not against it!

    Yeah I know, b*tch b*tch b*tch! :)
