One of my biggest pet peeves is littering. This picture is from a park where I feed my feral cats. Look at that pile of garbage by the trash can. Trash can. Right. There. Grrrrr! My brother suggested a bear got into the can and tipped it over (the can pivots on the wood posts), but since we don't have bears in this part of Florida, I think not. Maybe the can did tip, but I believe a human was involved, and if so, they should have put the trash back in.
Another peeve, people who stand during a concert. I like to get on my feet when the band plays a rockin' song or two at the end, but standing for the whole show - bad manners. I just went to a concert where a man was standing, playing his air guitar, and annoying everyone around him for most of the show. I wanted to yell, "Hey dude. Sit down. You're not the only one here and you're blocking the view of the people behind you who don't want to, or can't stand the whole time. Like that lady in the wheelchair." My buddy suggested popping him with a stun gun. Since I'm a writer, I got a great visual image of how that would play out, and now I have to work that into a book. But you'll be happy to know, we did not zap the rude dude, and stayed out of jail for the evening.
Speaking of behaving (or misbehaving), join me and a bunch of other romance writers as we go wild. We won't stand and play the air guitar (some of us might, just for fun, but we won't block your view), we might make some noise, and we will definitely talk about romance books of all kinds, and give away prizes. http://bit.ly/2ryYbNq
