Dolly's Second Life Pet Peeves Meme

Oh dear.  Strawberry Singh posted another meme and I don't want to be a chicken and not do this one.  It's about Second Life pet peeves, obviously.  We've all got them.  Some share them with the world at the drop of a hat.  Others (read that me) seldom share peeves because our mothers told us "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."

Well, sorry Mom.  I'll be nice again tomorrow.  Here are a few of the things that make me want to slap these cuffs on Second Lifers:

GESTURES - I hate them.  I hate the noise, I hate the screen spam.  Occasionally between friends it can be fun, I admit.  But don't talk to me in gestures and expect me to carry on my side of the conversation.

ASKING ME HOW OLD I AM - I'm old enough not to want to answer that question.  I may give a person a pass once.  Ask me again and he's just an asshole (and it's always men who ask).

ONE SIDED ROLEPLAY - Yeah, yeah.  Her Master told her to call all women Mistress and to refer to herself in the third person.  But unless I'm in a roleplay sim where it makes sense it annoys me that she does.  Of course, she might like the handcuffs.

GOING TO CROWDED EVENTS IN LAG INDUCING OUTFITS - I'm not looking at avatars and judging their sense of style at shopping events.  Firestorm has a wonderfully handy derender feature, but Firestorm lags me and I'm usually on V3 (or is it 4?), and I haven't figured out how to derender avatars in it.  Multiple avatars with rendering costs over 100,000 each is laggy to many of us.  Be thoughtful.

 Whew.  I'm stopping here before I slap the cuffs on myself for my intolerance.  Peeves are idiosyncratic bugs and not usually deal breakers.  If you do those things it doesn't mean I won't like you (unless you do all of them - what a nightmare).

On to styling credits.  I got these sunglasses from Pure Poison just the other day and thought, "I'll never be able to put together a look that includes these!"  Now that I've paired them with the Danger pose from Ploom (free at Pose Fair), I love them!

  1. I get the age question a lot as well, and now that I'm in my thirties, I'm not always that willing to share it with everyone. I hate it when people keep asking. I usually reply with, this is not irc and the old A/S/L question is boring now! :P

  2. Sometimes letting a um, boy know my age can make him slink away though. I enjoy watching that. Just saying. :p

  3. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who finds that age question annoying!
