1. To quote a friend: don't think you did anything for your father, it is just a well deserved punishment for you.

2. Time for an Omud graduates DO?

@ayagart, if indeed you still have nine months for the amud, you've ain't seen anything yet. I seriously wish you good luck. I went through this not long ago and times came when I felt I just couldn't take it anymore.

What was really annoying was how my sisters were telling me how I'm so lucky that I can do something for my father and they wish they can also do something for his neshama...  ::) They just had to take me for my word.

At the time I wanted to open a dedicated thread to the amud in the 11 months, (a pet peeve thread just doesn't do it justice...) but imho it's a potential for something extremely annoying when those who haven't gone through this will add in their .02. People can simply not perceive it if they didn't live it. But if you do open such a thread I've got a lot to add.

May it be a true aliya for the neshama.
Amein and thank you.

Show this (22) to your sisters.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

When flying on a morning flight and the person next to the window has the shades open. Or any time of the day really. Though only in the morning it's my pet peeve.

Once they join me there's no way they won't enjoy it.

Pet peeve threads that turn in to 'things I hate about shul' threads
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

Waiting in a very long line at BJ's only to realize when you're up next, it's cash only.

Is there no difference between when something annoying happens to you and a pet peeve?

Maybe it's just a peeve that's out there, whereas your pet peeve is something that bothers you over and over?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
