What Are Your Pet Peaves?

What are your pet peaves? You know..what bugs or urks you until your nerves are jumping out of your skin!! Let face we all have bet peaves, admit it. It doesn't matter how pleasant or nice of a person you are. We're human and there are things that do get under our skin. Maybe someone in your family, on your job, in your business, in your relationship, or elsewhere does something that just gets on your friggin nerves!#%&! Well this thread is designed for us to vent a few of our pet peaves on the air. It could be about anything, any situation, or anybody (just please don't mention any names:-). OK without further ado I'll get it started... A few of my top pet peaves are nosey people, people who whine & complain about EVERYTHING, people who can't make a decision for themselves to save their life, and I must say when I go to the library for some quiet time and concentration -and here a baby sccrrEAMING at the top of their lungs - running around wild possum without their parents being able to control them, this makes ME want to scream at the top of my lungs and run around uncontrollable without anyone being able to control me too! OK wooh... I got it out, feels much better. So there you have it. These are a few of my pet peaves and I feel a much better now that I vented them out to you. Hey what about you?... I know you have a few pet peaves too..come on..don't be shy -tell us about it.

Hmmm.... It is usually quite difficult to make me upset, but there are one or two things that really get to me, no matter what. The first is people cutting in line.I don't know why that upsets me so much. Maybe because I do respect lines and would not cut in front of anybody else. I think this is my biggest pet peeve. I just can't stand it be it a line for the bus, in a store, or even when a two lanes turn into one in the street and people start merging - there's always this idiots that think they're smarter than anyone else and just don't respect that. The other thing that gets to me is people that patronize others, it really gets into my nerves :)

I cannot stand it when my husband goes to bed he puts his clothes on my stairwell railing. I am talking if I don't pick them up, there is a weeks worth of clothes, or he will take a shower and leave a wet towel on my good wood floor. Really urks me that he has no clue on life. : )

That's understandable. You're nice. My ex-girlfriend got mad with me just because I left a few bubbles on the shower wall! - How petty is that?

Right now, my biggest pet peeve is when my husband makes a loud scream when he yawns. I keep telling him to yarn quietly, but he keep right on doing it. When I yarn barley a noise comes out of my mouth. I don't know why he feels the need to be so loud.

1. people who refuse to use their turn signals 2. dusty fans (i am the messiest person... but my fan has to be clean!) 3. people who don't leave a voicemail message, yet expect you to return their call i had these on my voicemail box for awhile... it was two minutes (the max)! i got a lot of voicemails claiming that the caller's pet peeve was voicemails that said anything other than "i'm not here right now, leave a message and i will call you back!" :-/

Yeah as far as turn signals goes you definitely have to drive for yourself and the car in front of you (and in back AND on the side of you these days).

Oh my gosh, the thing that annoys me more than anything else in the world is people that chew their toenails! And pick their nose (without a tissue) and when my hubby leaves the fluff from his socks all over my bedroom floor! It drives me nuts and I Actually want to stab him! Grrrr! Little things annoy me, there are no real big things, apart from people that judge others unnecessarily, that's quite annoying. I've found that more things have annoyed me, the older I get. So much for being mellow with age! My hubby is the most annoying person I have ever met, but I love him! And I'm sure he does things on puropse to wind me up! Where would be without them though? Lol!

My pet peeves are loud chewers or slurpers, slurping coffee, soup, etc. My family is bad about it. My boyfriend will get up and eat at like 3am, bring it to bed, and sit there eating when I'm trying to sleep. I love him but he makes this god awful breathy chomping sound like a "whhoomp" sound. and his jaw pops and i dunno it just irritates me. My grandmother will slurp her coffee so loud that i can hear her slurping from other rooms. And I can't stand people with lolipops and things making that sucking sound. And potato chips. My grandma is bad with them too I can be in my bedroom with the tv on and at least 30 feet down the hall and 4 rooms past, she'll be crunching on darn chips all hours of the night. ARGH lol.

I hate inconsiderate people who block the exit of train doors in subway before alighting passengers can clear out. What the hell are these people rushing to? Hell? I also hate inconsiderate people who talk loudly into their mobile phone, as if to let the whole world know about the details of the conversation! Who cares!!

Most of 'em just want to look important. It's funny when I go to a nightclub on occassion and see someone acting like they really need to have a loud cell phone conversation amongst BLASTING music. I've seen this stunt done over & over again. They're just screaming to be noticed, but they really just wind up looking r e a l stupid.

What's really funny, I noticed is, what bothers some people, doesn't bother me at all! But there is one thing I can think of that really bugs me and urks me until my nerves are jumping out of my skin! And that is for a person to pick on another person, or push somebody around! I can't stand it, and I always take up for the victim, because it really irritates me! And it's to the point, that it has gotten me in a lot of trouble before! I've always been like that, since I was little, since I am the oldest of eight siblings, it came naturally!

Yeah I hate bullies too, but these days you can get mixed up in a lot of crap just trying to be a good samaritan. You just don't know who to help these days.

My pet peaves are people who chew with thier mouths open and when they chew crunchy stuff with thier mouths open I just want to strangle them. Another one is people who get in my way at the grocery store, you know the one's that leave thier carts in the middle of the isle while they are at the end of the isle reading ingredient labels. 1 more and then I will stop when people are talking tome and they can't stay on topic they have to add all this other information to thier story that has no barrier on the topic they are trying to explain to me, all that does is confuse me even more which is easy to do because I have a hard time paying attention anyway. LOL. -Amber

I don't like being around people when they smoked weed. They talk and think slow and it's annoying. I don't like it when people chew with their mouth open. I don't like people who cut you off while driving. I don't like people who CAN't drive!! Who don't know the rules of the road. I don't like people on the internet who feel as if they have to always be right, and who put comments in like "it's not called postpartum it's called postnatal" haha...when they don't know what they are talking about. I don't like spam in my email. I don't like the noise of the trackers and plows around here early in the morning on the weekend. I don't like hot hot days in the summer. ummm I don't like people who only talk of themselves. And I don't like people who gossip.
