hail. pet peeves

you know something's wrong when san francisco witnessed hail four times in the past week o__O i mean "back in my days," we would be lucky enough to witness hail once every decade! no exageration there! lol. but seriously, it's a sign. the earth is dying.

well, that was morbid.

anyway, have i ever told you that one of my MAJOR pet peeves is ppl who dont wear seatbelts? be it i'm the driver or just a passenger, if i dont see someone wearing a seatbelt, i'll nicely remind them to put it on. so dont be surprised if you're sitting in the car with me and i say something when you forgot or/and is not wearing a seatbelt. most of the time, ppl forget or dont want to, but after i say something, they would usually put it on. but the other times, they would say really lame things to me like "oh i'm sure it'll be fine since i'm sitting in the back" or "i dont think i need to. it should be safe going local"

W.T.F.

ugh, that totally puts me over the top. it's like telling me you dont need to wear a lifejacket when you go rafting even tho you cant swim or you dont need to wear a helmet when you are on a motorcycle or smoking doesnt really kill. oh wait. some idiots already do say and do those things.

granted, doing those things doesnt necessarily mean you'll for sure die, but it's definitely better to be safe than sorry

worse of all, she tells my mom "wow your daughter's really into safety" and my mom answered her by saying "you know how ppl who are born here, they are into following rules" like as if it's a bad thing!!

My car beeps obnoxiously when my front passenger doesn't wear their seatbelt. That usually does the trick. :P In China, every time I got in a taxi, I would automatically look for the seatbelt and it would drive me nuts when there was NO seatbelt! GRR And when riding with my relatives, first thing I did was put on my seatbelt and they assumed I did it b/c I was American. Um...OK, nevermind the fact that I don't want to fly through the windshield... O.o

exactly! it's all about safety! not if i'm american or born here or whatever!

my car does that too! only for passenger tho. not for backseat. it also beeps if you took it off while in the car and you dont get out of the car right away.

so beep once you sit in the car and dont put on seatbelt. and beep if you take it off and dont get out of the car in 30 secs. it's pretty cool. hahah

yeah, mine doesn't beep for the backseat either, although those are probably the people who would most likely not want to wear a seatbelt. the car also starts to beep faster if you're taking too long to put on your seatbelt. it's almost as if it's saying it's going to eject you if you don't hurry up, lol

The Earth isn't dying, silly. It is going through a transition phase due to global warming. But hope is not lost. There is still time to rectify the situation! :)

haha you're not the only one who said i am a crazy driver.

i blame it on the fact that i drove a sports car. and maybe bc i'm a little agressive

but dancetygerdance only sat in my car once or twice. usually when it's the person's first few times, i drive a little safer, not to scare them hhaha so dont be too harsh on him.

yeah, with me it's ppl who do not wear seatbelts and ppl who don't lock their doors. oh, and ppl who ride their bikes on the sidewalk....which is kinda irrelevant but not....cuz we're talking about peeves.

ahh.. people need to wear seatbelts. if they're caught without it on while WE'RE THE DRIVERS, we get screwed over with a fine. so they need to stop being selfish and put on the dang seatbelt.

i remember the time i was a DD, and someone wouldn't wear his seatbelt. i pulled over, screamed in his face, grabbed him by the throat and ordered him to put on his seatbelt.

while you're at it, order that person to request less/no bags when they go out and shop. ;)
