The off off topic... what peeves you thread!
I looked around the site. I could not find a section that was completely off topic - for any topic to rant about.
Remember when you used to purchase an item at a retail store, and the cashier would tell you the price at the register... now they are silent and assume you know the price. Yes, we all know the tiny lcd screen displays the grand total, but still... would it kill the employee to say your total is $4.99?????
I intentionally ask them how much i owe, if they do not bring it to my attention.
that was a minor peeve.... lets start it off on a mellow note and see where it goes... assuming the moderators are cool with it.

Re: The off off topic... what peeves you thread!
E-books, I read a lot, love the E-Book concept. . However two things bug me about them.
1. Way too expensive. You really don't get to own the book,
The publishers have zero variable costs. They charge more for the ebook than for the same book in paperback.
2. As I mentioned, you don't own an electronic copy of the book. You can't give it away, sell it, and in most cases you can't loan it to a friend. Then when you die (at 103) the thousands of dollars you spent on 'buying' a library of books Disappears..... . Why do so many people buy these books?
Are we all sheep? (don't answer that).
