I have a friend in Israel who emails pictures of her children. That's not the peeve. The peeve is that the pictures are always HUGE. Her emails take a million years to download. And when they get here, the pictures are usually sideways or whatever.
I love getting her pictures, but usually can't be bothered looking at them because it's impossible to scroll through and look at them casually. They must be shrunk down; they must be rotated. And she sends a bunch at a time.
Here's a snapshot of one as it appears in my email window.
It's not like she's not technically proficient... she's a programmer! She works in web design!
I guess that's why they call it a peeve. Just annoying enough to annoy; not enough to actually end the friendship over.
