The Pet Peeve of the Day is a doozy, and I have to warn you, if you're eating breakfast, second breakfast, fika, lunch, dinner, supper, high tea, low tea, elevenses, or what-have-you, or if you have a weak stomach, you may not wish to read further. ;o)
Basically, it's this-- people who think that watching someone vomit is hi-lar-ious and-- furthermore, because honestly, I don't mind if they sit guffawing at it all day long-- insist on inflicting it upon others. They do this sometimes on AFV (the "funniest home videos" program), for instance, and in some movies. Most TV programs I watch have the decency to at least provide the buffer of a waste basket, but the sound and mental image is bad enough. Look, I felt a little queasy just seeing that hideous spot left on Don Draper's shirt after he tossed his cookies. ~shudder~ (Considering how often the character drinks to excess, I have a feeling this may have happened more than once, so just choose your favorite instance.)
Then there are people who use-- as their avatars-- animated gifs of someone vomiting. I don't care if it's real or not-- why would I ever want to see it once-- much less over and OVER again in a loop? It's horrifying, and it has to stop. (Well, ok. It doesn't have to, and I'm sure it won't, but I certainly wish it would.)
...This has been the Pet Peeve of the Day.
And no, I don't intend to make this a regular feature of the blog. You can thank me later. ;o)
