Cueball's friend calls him and finds out that he is reading a book on a Saturday night. Saturday night, or the weekend in general, is supposed to be a time for enjoying or partying with friends after five weekdays of work.

This was the first time Randall mentions his many Pet Peeves. Although the next already appeared in 283: Projection four months later, still in 2007, it is a slow growing list, but one has been added roughly every other year since then, the fifth coming towards the end of 2018 in 2080: Cohort and Age Effects.
