    My biggest pet peeve there is when people cut in line and know fully well that they are doing it. I remember waiting in line to see Ms. Piggy and right before it was my turn, this woman cut in front of the entire line and started to walk up. The friendly greeter informed her that the line ended there, and the woman's response was "well, we're trying to catch a show." The greeter smiled and replied, "all these people are trying to as well." I told that greeter she was wonderful!

    I got to handle the linecutters in my own way when I was a character. See, when I was little, we went to Disney almost every year, and I was one of the kids who consistently was cut in line by rude adults with their kids. My parents NEVER allowed us to do that, so it was always a pet peeve of mine. One day, when I was in my Rafiki costume, this mother continually pushed her child in front of all the other kids. I just kept pointing to the back of the line and acting nice. She obviously didn't care. So I did a conga line with her and her son and stopped at the back of the line. Then I ran back to the front and the crowd cheered. It's not fair when people do that, and I always remember the polite kids who actually have manners. Even a three year old can be taught manners. I understood when kids would get overly excited and run to the front to give me a hug, but I also expected their parents to escort them back after a few seconds. Some adults can be so much ruder than a kid could ever.
    Now is the time. Now is the best time. Now is the best time of your life. Life is a prize. Live every minute. Open your eyes and watch how you win it. Yesterdays memories may sparkle and gleam. Tomorrow is still but a dream! Remember the past, but live for today. The whole world is watching and your in the parade. There's so much to cheer for, be glad you're here for it's the best time of your life!

    I really hate it when the park is busy and everyone is walking towardsa aparticular destination, but then the person in front of you just...stops. Everyone behind them almost trips over them and they are the ones that give you the dirty look. I al so really that people with strollers rarely watch where they are going. My friend Shanon's got run over by more strollers last time. She finally snapped at someone and said "People are trying to walk here!!!"

    I love the joke the skippers supposedly do over the queue P/A system in California:

    'Your attention please. Here at the world famous Jungle Cruise, we tolerate no cutting in line. Anyone found with a pair of scissors will be ejected from the queue'.

    That drives me nuts everywhere, the mall, on our nightly walk home to avoid Redsox traffic, on the freeway and at the themeparks. I just bump in to them. They caused the accident not me. Of course the boyfriend that threatened me for doing it at pets ahoy in seaworld got himself and his GF Bounced out of the park for his threat. Pays to have alot of witnesses.

    What really annoys and just makes me want to yell at these people is when you're waiting in a long line and people behind you duck under the bars go in the Fastpass line and then get back in line closer to the front! This happens all the time on rides like Space Mountain and it just makes me so mad.

    Yes, Please wait your turn. This is when having exceedingly bony elbows is a huge bonus. This European couple (yes, the FULL olfactory treatment) kept trying to slid around us at the Tiki Room. You cannot get in front of a mother with a small child (hideously rude). I just kept "flexing" my shoulder out so my elbow was in their way and on the tenth try I told her to please back up, and wait since there were obviously plenty of seats and we were all very near the front, they could be assured of entrance. They then started babbling in German and giving us nasty looks. I moved Kea in front of me, arched my eyebrow, gave her the superior American look ( I learned "the look" in Texas), flipped my hair and put my back to them. Yes it was poor manners on my part, but give me a break, they smelled really bad.

    Pet Peeve... people who dont' shower BEFORE they go to the park!!! Hello people could you please rinse off and maybe use some soap!!! I cannot stand when people smell!!! You know it's hot you know your going to sweat why must you offend the rest of the world with your horrible body odors?? I was just in Sea World this past June listening to a conversation between 2 guys.. The one guy was complaing about his wife taking too long in the shower in the mornings... He said that she should be more like him and I quote...."rinse the stink" off at night!!! His friend seemed a little concerned and questioned the man about his cleaning habits.. The guy said.. "well if you plan on sweating all day why shower before hand??" Um.. well did it ever occur to this man that he could have used a shower BEFORE and AFTER!!! nasty!!!

    My biggest pet peeve is the guy who is to concentrated on the park map to watch where he is going, and when he finally figures out the map, realizes he is going the wrong way, so he stops suddenly and turns around and then gives the "watch where you are going" look after three people and a stroller run into him.
    Man has a Dream, and thats a start...

    Try sitting next to one of these stinkers during a three hour lecture and the AC isn't even working correctly. I guess not all students have the money to purchase soap or pay the water bills.

    The poor bathing habits are scary-what if you have to sit in a seat recently vacated by one of these slobs: do you smell like them for the rest of the day? I really do not like cloth seats in public places since they tend to be transfer stations for lots af cooties. YUK. The truly tragic thing about the lack of proper bathing is that the soap is provided at hotels, and free at most campus/ health department facilities. Mayhap directions for use should be provided with the fire escape info. Couldn't hurt, might help.

    We call the europeans in speedos "grape-smugglers" and laugh like hyenas when we see one. If you can point and laugh they will usually purchase a pair of shorts out of sheer humiliation. Not too nice, but neither is having to explain certain things to a small child who points and asks "what's that".

    I have a bunch of peeves I want to list, but seeing as this thread is 9 pages long and I have to get going, I don't have time to read them all, and I really don't want to post the same things others have, so I'll have to come back to this one when I have more time... maybe tonight. As for now, I'll just mention one that i KNOW nobody else has, because it happened to my roommate and i just last saturday.

    We were in the Lights, Motors, Action arena at Disney-MGM Studios. The show had already been delayed twice due to weather, and had just been cancled for good, and we were waiting for the rain to lighten up a bit so we could get out without using the breaststroke. Somehow, we ended up starting up a conversation with the girl in the row behind us, and it seemed to be going well. She seemed pretty friendly, and claimed to be a huge Disney fan. She even claimed to be a CM taking her day off in the park. But once the conversation started getting into the history of some of the attractions, I began to have my doubts. In fact, I became convinced that not only was she probably NOT a CM, but she was probably a CL...Compulsive Liar.

    I'm thinking she probably thought us to be poor dumb tourists, not seasoned Disney Veterans, and seemed to be making it up as she went along. She made some comment about "Did you know that there was a Mission: Space at EPCOT back in like 1965 or sometime around then, but too many people got sick on it and it had to close?"

    I caught her in mid-lie for that one. I just put on a sly grin and cut her off... "EPCOT wasn't open in the '60s. Disney World as a whole didn't open until 1971." I was trying not to be mean about it, but I couldn't just let that one slide. She covered her story with "Well then maybe it was over in California or something, I'm not positive." I asked if maybe she was thinking of Mission to Mars in the Magic Kingdom in the '70s, and she said "No, it was definately Mission: Space". I let that one go.

    Then later in the conversation, I asked her if she'd ever been to the Living Seas, and she said "No, I don't get to Sea World very much". OMG!!! I couldn't believe this girl. I told her it was in EPCOT, and she was like, "Whatever... I used to spend a lot of time at Universal Studios, so I always get those mixed up." At this point I was searching for relevence. She wasn't making a bit of sense.

    At that point, even though it was still raining pretty hard, my roommate and I decided it was time to leave, just to get away from this girl and her stories. If she was a Disney CM, shame on her for not understanding and appreciating the company which she is representing. It's a good thing we weren't poor dumb tourists. She probably would have told us to try to make dinner reservations at Chuck E. Cheese's in the Magic Kingdom . My goodness!
