Default Tell me your pet peeve

Mine is people booking return air too early.

Some examples of my pet peeves:

1) I know the ship docks at 8 am and I booked my flight for 9:30 am and the airport is an hour away, can I make.

2) I tried to sneak booze on board and they got me--I'm mad at them and won't sail them again.

Lets hear yours.

But remember this is just for fun and laughs.

My pet peeve is when people say that they won't go on a cruise because (there aren't enough things for them to do)

Mine is people entering an elevator before the ones already on can get out.

I have another.
Not cruise related, but it is a water thing.

Boaters waiting to get to the launch area before they prep their boats. And vice versa...completely securing their boat for travel while in the retrieve area

I am with you on this one. This is Royal Caribbean's Minnow of the Seas at the boat ramp.



I can't stand coffee dawdlers. Those people that stand in front of the coffee while they figure out what they want to put in it. They have no sense that there is someone behind them. Then have to open the little packets, stir, taste, ect.... I put a little milk in the empty cup, pour my coffee and am out of the way in 5 seconds. There is no need to stir becuase it gets mixed as you put the coffee in.

My pet peeve (and it may be influenced by the fact that I'm Canadian) are those messages that says....

"I'm going to be in France, Germany, Turkey and Iceland. Can I pay in US dollars?"

They drive me nuts. Can I pay for my stuff in the US in Canadian dollars or Euros?

Guess what? You CAN pay in US dollars!!!

In fact, when I was in Canada a few years ago they preferred US dollars because of the exchange rate.

Heck, I paid with US currency in Japan.

You can... we just give you horrible exchange rates for it. I run a B&B and we try to give the guests reasonable rates, but generally on the street you can expect rates that are 10% worse than they should be. And most businesses won't touch a traveller's cheque in USD because the banks charge us a $5 processing fee for USD cheques including traveller's cheques.

Depends on when it was, you may have tipped him as much as 35%.

I'm sure he was a happy cabby, most Canadians tip $2 on a longer trip and $1 on a short trip. I would have been happy too.

I would be too. It's likely untaxed as well (though he has to declare part of his tips, but then again it also adds to your pension if you do.)

Canadians probably don't tip as much because of the wages here. Even a waiter or waitress makes minimum wage plus their tips. Minimum wage in Canada also covers unemployment insurance, social insurance (I think you call it social security in the US) and full medical insurance. (It's worse in Quebec where it includes subsidized daycare and drug insurance).

Most Americans now pay by credit card, those that pay cash, deserve the rate that they get. For most Canadians, it's a hassle to have to cash it in at the bank, but for 10% extra... I'd do it too.

My pet peeve is all the crazy people at the buffet. If it's so hard for them to choose between this and that, how on earth do they ever buy a car?
