What really really gets on your nerves, however stupid it may be? I hate it when someone at a shop counter or checkout takes ages to put everything back away in their handbag or purse, holding everyone up whose behind them. They could simply move out of the way by a step or two but decide to be selfish. I know really thinking about it, its unwarranted for me to think this, I can wait an extra 20-40 secs, its not going to kill me or anything, but its a pet peave. I just wondered what annoys other people, the little things that just touch a nerve...

My biggest pet peeve right now is trying to communicate with businesses over the phone. They have all these different stages that you have to navigate through. Some of them, if you press one wrong number, you have to start all over again. Then the worst of all is when the bill collectors call and you put up and say hello to a machine that expects you to hold on until a live person comes on the line. It's like, are they kidding me? Just like they have better things to do with their time than wait, so do I. I simply hang up immediately. I don't care who it is.

Rude customer service is one of my pet peeves. I am tired of going to ask someone that works some where a question and then they give a answer back in a rude why. I am tired of going to my local Walmart for this reason. The people that are there. I use to work there but you are not suppose to act rude to customers on any job that you work.
