uncontrollable "auto-pet peeving"

so, i made a rambly, long winded comment to p-man the other day, and mentioned that putting "strange" things in quotes is a pet peeve of mine. it gives things seriously sarcastic overtones, and just makes people think you're "special." since making said, i have not been able to stop putting things that don't quite "belong" in quotes.

see the posting below this one for case in point.

(and yes, thank you cards that read: "thank you" for your generosity are the worst)

i couldn't be more with you on this. i like when i see signs on the side of some rural highways advertising "Oranges". so i'm like, are they not really oranges, or what? it's like they're hiding something. i don't like it. anyway, i'm sure you see my point, as you were the one who wrote the original post. ok, thanks for your time.

good point. i don't know that i would choose to eat "oranges" when there are unequivocal oranges available.

you're welcome for my time.
