Poll- Your Pet peeves

Just wanted to know what my fellow cruisers pet peeves are?

One of my pet peeves is people not using hand sanitizers.

People being rude to CMs. And people not washing their hands.

I absolutely LOATHE hand sanitizer. I am all for washing hands and do it frequently, but I refuse to use hand sanitizer. I'm in the camp of "you keep killing everything and pretty soon there won't be anything to protect you!" This sanitize everything (grocery carts, the seats, etc) is getting out of hand, how will your immune system know how to protect you!

Sorry, the microbiologist in me came out!

My pet peeve is the iPAD camera, that thing is HUGE!

Boy, I agree about the iPad camera! When you're a short person, and the guy (or woman) in front of you puts their iPad up in the air, over their heads, it's very rude.

What I find annoying is those people who think (and act like) that they have to be first in line for the excursion busses. As if the party who gets on last won't get the same experience as they will.

And the people who are always pushing to the front so they won't "have any other people in their pictures" and then stay there. I wonder if they realize that they're in everyone else's pictures?

People who cut in line. Seriously ticks me off, even moreso when they act like they don't see you at all (you banged into me when you did it.. I KNOW you know I'm there!).

Also not keeping your germs to yourself as much as possible, although I honestly can't decide who I dislike more... the sort who don't try to hold back their coughing/sneezing or those that do it into their hands and then grab the serving utensils anyway as if nothing happened.

Chair hoggers!!! You know, the people who leave their personal belongings in several chairs all day - just in case - but never actually sit in the chairs!!

Chair hoggers and the Ipad cameras. I remember 20 years ago when everyone was buying the cameras with the flip screen and thinking how bad they were. T IPad camera is 100 times worse.

People who should keep their wild little offspring on a shorter leash.

Yes on all counts!

Nothing beats good old fashion soap, water, and actual hand washing.

And omg heck yes on the iPad thing. Not only is it obnoxious, and obstructive to others around them, but people look ridiculous holding it up to take pictures. It's like they're holding up a cookie sheet.

Adults that don't make room for children to see the show. I saw this mainly at the pirate show. Not trying to knell down our sit crossed legged so the little ones can see. Reminded me of parade time in the park.

Had one guy with a video camera on a tall tripod standing up front middle the entire time.

The coolest thing I saw was the hand washers at the kids club. Need one of those by my back door all summer for my boys who seem to find dirt no matter what.

.

I got annoyed with the constant hand sanitizers, I'd take one then they try to give me one when I get near and again when I leave and if you come up the aft elevators they hit you at both ends of cabanas. It's worse than the perfume snipers at the mall.

Oh my, the ipad camera, I HATE those!

At MK we let a little girl of about 5 stand in front of us so she could see the electrical light parade better. Then her dad handed her his ipad and she held it up filming the whole time, blocking my kids' view. I was more then ticked!
