Peeve

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!
Bah.
 
I guess that's why they call it a peeve.  Just annoying enough to annoy; not enough to actually end the friendship over.
