Pet Peeve Feature: For Our Friends at All the Blues
In the comments lalaland13 mentioned one of her Pet Peeves: people entering the exit, and exiting the entrance (dirty joke not included here, but you know, use your imagination...).
People, this is not only annoying, it is probably dangerous, or at the very least, disruptive. There is a good reason these pathways are marked as such, and whether you are in a vehicle or on foot, it would behoove you to pay attention to these demarcations. You are not entitled to forge your own way when driving on a highway or entering/exiting a parking lot, or a store, for that matter. This is not a hike in the woods reminiscent of "two roads diverged in a yellow wood and sorry I could not travel both..." You are not allowed to take the path less traveled in this situation, become a lemming, follow the crowd! At the very least is merely makes you look incapable of reading or interpreting arrows, and no one wants that, do they? And one day you might run into lalaland13 and she might beat you up, or at least make you sorry.
Do you have a Pet Peeve? Send it on and I'll lay the mannerly smackdown on the offenders of such crimes!
