The Monday Peeve 70

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!

Today’s peeve is short and not sweet. It’s so annoying when sites don’t return you to the place you were reading when you click back from a link. Yes, I know I could open the link in a new tab, but it’s so much more convenient just to click through. I know it is POSSIBLE to be returned to the proper place because somehow all the shopping sites stick you back to exactly were you were, so why not news articles? I’m sure it has to do with their goddamn ads, but I’m sick of it. BLAH!

  2. Yes! Sometimes it works to hit the back button several times rapid-fire, but damn, stop holding us hostage already!

  3. My peeve is with the Covid vaccine distribution and why it is so disorganized. In Florida they are giving it out for free to anyone over 65, but I have gone 4 times and the facility was already full and I could not get my shot. The area that I live in is full of retirement communities and the thousands of cars that do get in have to wait on these massive lines. I have been reading where a lot of people have been coming from other states and even from Canada, so the line is endless. The other thing is this talk about them not having enough of the second vaccine because they want to keep giving out the first vaccines and that is not how this is supposed to work. It is just really messed up because of poor planning and bad leadership.

  5. It’s extra annoying, when that back button option is taken away altogether. Our mutual frenemy, WordPress, is guilty of this. I’ll go to someone’s post via the Reader, and find to my dismay that they won’t let me “out” of reading the post via a back button. I have to reload my own dashboard and then open the reader again. Grrrrr indeed!!

  6. It’s especially annoying when it’s one of the sites that allows limited numbers of free articles. They probably do it on purpose, you’re right.🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
