    I'm not sure if a similar thread has been started before, but I have a few pet peeves about vaping in general at the moment.

    1) Sub Ohm tanks - These just generally scare me because they have the word clearomizer in them. I know you can make them rebuildables too like the Subtank but I'd rather go with a Lemo and skip the whole sub tank craze nowadays. One reason I started vaping was to save on expenditure, and having to buy seperate coils annoy me because I'm too used to rebuildables.

    2) Temperature control - no reason for me to be scared, but I just feel that the market is too new at the moment. There aren't really proper videos explaining temperature control. I don't see the use of them at the moment, I'll just stick to normal voltage and mech mods.

    3) Box mods with internal batteries - come on, we bought all these VTC4s and 5s and now you're putting in batteries into your mods. What if I forget to charge my mod overnight?

    4) 90VG 10PG liquid. Terrible stuff. Never again. Tastes terrible, makes me cough on every single lung inhale.

    5) Competition this and competition that.

    When my coils finally decide to die, it is either right before bed, first thing in the morning or about 10 minutes before I need to leave the office.

    That moment you realize you weren't paying attention and your rda is bone dry and you realize you are inhaling it. (This is typically followed by a moment from hell and lots of people laughing saying you should have seen your face)

    Damn right! I want to get a couple of new clone RDAs from fasttech but there are just too many options. I have mainly used a magma and a kayfun since almost a year ago and now there are so many out there. Planning on getting 3 or 4 RDAs. Maybe Tobh(since it's a classic), an Atomic and probably 2 more.

    Today a lady on public transportation (train) started vaping her ego and noticed this lady next to her was clearly not liking it. The vapor says "oh I'm sorry is this bother you? Its only water vapor not a cigarette" lady says "oh no I'm fine" but clearly is disgusted with the smell. The vapor lady stops then five minutes later start a again! in my head IM LIKE FUCKING POPLE VAPE LIKE YOU USED TO SMOKE!we all know some of our juice smells like something and I know people don't like shit blown in there faces. I so bably wanted to whip out my goblin and ipv4 and give her a taste of what she's doing. My obscene clouds should equal out to what the non vaper is feeling.

    That's not so bad Uncle... it's when the coil dies in the middle of a good voop that I have to question if there is any fairness left in the world.

    When you bring out to work the wrong atty/juice combo and are forced to temporarily drip flavors that may or may not go well together

    Spending an hour at a vape shop trying out flavors by vendors that people say they'd die for only to find out you've already made those same flavors, with a better taste, at home. Also, spending that hour tasting some absolutely horrid juices and being floored by some of the prices I seen. Today for example I found a 10ml bottle of idfk what brand of juice for 44.99. No, that's not a typo.

    I hear you on the post at goin to a shop for an hour to find a great juice the employees are raving about and it ends up blowing.
    And my biggest would have to be assholes that think just because it's not cigarette smoke, they can just chuck clouds wherever the fuck they want. Like if you are in a mall that is vape friendly, don't vape inside the actual stores right in an employees face. If you are in a bar that doesn't allow you to smoke inside, don't just assume it's ok to vape there. Last but not least, if someone asks you to stop, fucking stop.

    There are also times when I try juice at a shop using the employee's vape setup and it tastes decent, but when I try it on my own build it tastes terrible.

    My biggest pet peave is vapers who openly support regulations. Ive heard things like "But they could be making juice in their bath tub" or "they wont tax it that much" or "any real restrictions are years away".
    Whats the worst part, I talked to a vape shop owner at a vape shop and he told me "the juice companies make alot of money, if they get taxed it wont be much of a burden on anyone else" I asked him If he was aware that shit rolls down hill.
    A close second would be juice companies charging 20 dollars for 30ml, that cost them a $1.50 make.

    I can't be peeved any more than I can when it comes regulation because I come from a country where it's illegal. So technically I can't even have a vape in my possession, let alone buy or sell or actually use it.

    And what is up with unregulated box mods? I really don't get those. Won't they have higher voltage drop than a normal mech, because of how they're built? I just don't like em, don't like em at all!

    Simple vaping stuff being way overpriced because it is 'cheaper' than cigarettes and any kind of eliquid leaking anywhere.

    In unregulated the drop doesnt matter since you can go 8.4v or double mah and double amps since it splits the load.
    Edit if you want a v drop that destroys any mech drop get a copper cherrybomber as the drop wont even get a reading in the hundredths.

    My biggest vaping pet peave are the vapers.
    Not the vapor, the vapers.
    The people who when they smoked, did not know anything about electrical, chemical or mechanical engineering; but 6 months of rebuilding and/or juice making turned them into experts on all three and a serious case of hypochondriacism.
    Then take it one step further and make sure that whatever mod/atty anyone else is using will cast the wrath of God upon thee; only because its not the mod/atty that they say is they have approved of.

    That reminds me of another pet peeve: Dirty finger nails in vaping you tube video close ups.

    That in turn reminds me of another pet peeve: unfocused close ups in instructional vaping videos. Aside from wasting time and telling you nothing, the focus hunt makes me seasick.

    Having said that, unfocused close ups of dirty finger nails are okay.

    Need to ad this, big name manufacturers on vaping forums trying to sell their gear directly to vapers; especially when it is contradictory to what the forum member asked for.
    Ie-vaper asking for a removable battery mod and says they have no interest in subohming but aspire suggests a cf/atlantis starter kit.

    There are so many things to get peeved about at almost every level of anything and everything. Most of em deserve a good peeving too. But for me life has been a lot less stressful once I switched to "Not giving a fuck". People might also reduce stress by "Not giving a rats ass", "Not giving a shit" or maybe even by "Not giving a damn".
