WHY are we always paying such high gasoline prices when the price of oil keeps dropping? Kelowna and area always seem to pay some of the highest fuel prices in the country. Come on, in Ontario they are paying less than $1 a liter!!!

Pet Peeve: Bitching about the price of gas because Calgary or Toronto has lower prices, but never looking at the glass half full being thankful we don't pay $1.60 like they have in the Yukon. If you don't like the price of gas in Kelowna move to Calgary.

Kinda like that guy 2 years ago with the sign on the highway in Westbank "BOYCOTT SHELL CHEVRON AND ESSO" for the prices,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,then proceeds to climb up into a big azz truck that is NOT diesel.

my pet peeve of the day, People who hire people and constantly string them along with "ill pay you next week" and people who are STUPID enough to keep believing them
I swear some people slipped into the gene pool that had no lifEguard.

My newest pet peeve is people who hire complete and total idiots who barely even show up. Complain about them being idiots and not showing up. . . yet do not fire them.

I had a boss like that once. Does this person have the initials J.O. by chance?

I got a new one too...

Sitting down after supper to relax and be entertained and finding only the likes of "pet peeves", "true or false", "@#$%ing CATS" or "Global economic disaster" threads highlighted.

cammaaaann....someone make me laugh, or make me angry....either way this is a letdown.

Pet peeve: an uninformed and apathetic electorate.

My pet peeve specifically is finding cigarette butts absolutely everywhere we all go. The hotel that's smoke free in the rooms has cigarette butts lining the walkway right outside the room doors. Was it too much trouble to go the desk and demand that an outdoor ashtray be provided?
