Family who raid my Christmas baking to the point where I have nothing left to give my coworkers . . . will be up late tonight.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

Not being able to find Mandarin oranges. Well, it's not really a pet peeve but I didn't want to start a new thread:) Seriously, though, where can we find them? They're always here before Christmas but I haven't seen any.

I just found some in bulk at Save-On-Foods Foods in West Kelowna. A bit pricey but very good.

I have been wondering where they went this year! The have been none in the Super Store. Save On has had some a while ago, and I bought 5 or 6 boxes a month ago, but now there's nothing but a few boxes left with half rotten oranges in them. Totally weird. I've had Mandarin oranges every Christmas since I was 5, but it looks like this year will be the first exception.

Pet Peeve;

As trivial as it seems it just irks me.

Time and time again I see it, does not even to seem the news source

The use of the (to me) non- word pleaded.

You can plead, enter a plea, or have pled.

Damn, it's against my religion to shop at Walmart, but I will have to make an exception today (Master Yoda, forgive me).

Here's a pet peeve of mine: You're trying to find a parking place at the mall and finally! There it is! As you look more closely you see that a driver has parked well over the line and effectively taken up two parking spots. You don't have a Smart Car to squeeze in there so you just start the hunt all over again.

They have lots of things that we buy there because they are a lot cheaper than anywhere else. Not just by a small amount either. When you save a couple of dollars per item it adds up fast.

People that have to make every thread they contribute to about themselves. Must be starving for some attention I guess.
Someone has to say it.
