Pet Peeve 319 (paca)

This is really, really important. You know those metal things that go in the drain of your sink, where you are supposed to push down and it stops the water, and you pull up a little bit and the water goes through the holes but it catches the food? I hate those things. Sometimes they work, but most of the time, they just cause trouble. The main problem is, periodically, you can't keep them from stopping up the sink. A cup touches it and it goes to stop mode. The water touches it and it goes to stop mode. I've put the silly thing on the side of the basin, not even in the drain, and it will slide down to the middle and stop the drain. Then when it isn't doing that, it periodically decides to not stop water at all. You push and adjust and shove and water keeps slipping through. What of that?

And, yes, llama, my pet peeve number was selected for you.

Those things have been the bane of my day on numerous occassions.
