How Do I Feel About Posting Today. I Feel Good About Posting Today

Wound-up Pet Peeve #1: People who repeat what you've just said as part of their answer to what you've just said...

Mark: Is there going to be a veal sausage festival in October?
Peev: Yes, there is going to be a veal sausage festival in October.

Even worse...

Mark: Where is the parking garage?
Peev: Where is the parking garage _ The parking garage is two blocks that way.

Possibly the worst...

Mark: Do you think it'll rain tomorrow?
Peev: Do I think it'll rain tomorrow. (sigh) Yes, I do think it'll rain tomorrow.

I don't get royalties for writing your dialogue. Maybe I should start charging.
