Pet Peeves and Punishments

With COVID and working from home, I haven't spent a lot of time out and about over the last 18 months; however, over the last few weeks, this has started to change. Being exposed to several of my pet peeves raised my blood pressure and I wanted to hear your thoughts on pet peeves and how you'd punish the offending party.

The easy answer for punishment is a horrible death - so I'm thinking we should be creative and less violent. So I'll start:

1) Pet Peeve - Sitting in your car, in a parking lot, with the engine running. I've seen spouses/children sitting in a running car while the other adult is grocery shopping and people sitting in a running car on their lunch breaks. This makes me absolutely nuts - walk around outside and get some fresh air.

My punishment would be that you have to lay under your car while it's running in August for the same length of time you offended me.

2) Pet Peeve - Driving diagonally through a parking lot. No one pays a lick of attention while driving in a parking lot and cutting across lanes to save 4 seconds is going to cause an accident.

My punishment is driving the perimeter of the same parking lot with your 93 year old uncle behind the wheel. He's not tall enough to see over the steering wheel, he's half blind, and he's driving 3 mph. You're never going to make it to the food court alive.

Now it's your turn.
