Are You Kidding?? Pet Peeves #1

Posted on Thursday, May 20, 2010 in Pet Peeves

I’ve decided to add this to my blog once a week.  I hope by venting here I’ll be a bit more patient in the real  world.  Most of these will have nothing to do with title and escrow.  I cover those issues in other posts and forums.  I hope you enjoy…

I’ve got to get this pet peeve off my chest first… I am a regular patron of the local establishments know as QT or QuikTrip. They really know how to run a convenience store, and they make every effort to keep their stores and gas pumps clean. I even plan my route throughout the day to run by one of the East Valley QT’s. I know, get a life, right?

For some it’s Starbucks and a frappucino, but for me it’s QT and a 32 ounce Diet Coke, extra ice. So what’s chappin’ my hide? As I mentioned, the folks at QT keep their stores exceptionally clean. Making this job more difficult are the yahoos that think nothing of dumping the rest of their cold coffee or warm soda directly onto the parking lot, always right where I exit and enter my vehicle.


You can’t make it the extra 10 feet to the tree or the bushes to dump your liquid crap? How do you avoid stepping in the mess you’ve left?  I know, it must be that after you return to your vehicle with your new refreshment, you dump your old one out the window right before driving away, right? And why do you do this?  Because YOU don’t want to step in it!!


Why not throw down some old, worn out chewing gum and your last oil change remnants while you’re at it! Come on people, give your actions just a little bit of thought. Consider the next vehicle and it’s passengers that must use the parking space you’ve just defiled. Am I really asking for too much? Judging by your actions, I probably am…
