Pet Peeves: We All Have Them, Right?

Everyone has something that just annoys the heck out of them. Some of them are big, and some of them may even seem petty to others. My question to you is: What is one or some of your pet peeves? When they occur, do you say something about it? Or do you suffer in irritation quietly? Can you recall an instance when someone annoyed you? One of my pet peeves: When people read over your shoulder. I remember back when I was in elementary school, I was reading this good book and out of the corner of my eye, I saw the girl who sits next to me reading my book word for word! I don't know why, but it irritated the heck out of me, and I wanted to hurry up and turn the page so she couldn't read it. I laugh about it now...

I think that we all do have little pet peeves and I know that some may be stranger than others...but I think that mine is when someone is talking and then other people just cut in and won't let that person finish talking because I mean everyone deserves their own chances to talk...and I think that it is only polite that you let them talk to whoever they want to talk to when they want to talk and not interuppt them I mean I know that it will happen with an accident...but time after time really gets to me...

I see that happen a lot when the girls in my Cosmetology class try to hold a conversation lol. One girl will start talking about one thing, and the other, louder girl will butt in with her own topic. I just watch and think to myself 'how rude!

My biggest Pet Peeve is tattle tale-ing. I can't stand it when some one tells on, or reports to someone about a breaking a rule or something. I mean in small instances, where no one or nothing was affected, and it wouldn't make a difference if people knew what happened, or never know what happened. x0

Wow I have tonnes of pet peeves. In fact I have too many to list lol. But I will definitely list one of the top ones that I have. I cannot stand those who are hypocritical in anyway. Especially those who claim to be religious or spiritual. They preach to "love and to never judge" and yet they turn out to be the most judgmental ones. Also if you vent to them about having financial problems, they are the ones who preach to you "you are loved, therefore you are rich, so you have nothing to complain about" and yet they wouldn't be happy with anything less than a $50,000 convertible, living in a 5,000 square foot home, and going on expensive cruises all year round. And best of all, whenever you are dealing with something stressful, they preach to you that "you will be made stronger in the end" and yet they have never once experienced any of those things I have!! THAT is what gets to me! Those who think they know more than you do, or think they have the answers to everything.. things that they wouldn't be able to cope with if THEY went through those same things.

I have a lot of pet peeves, I just can't think of them off the top of my head though. I know one that annoys me is when I ask my husband where soemthing is and he responds "It's where it always is." when he's always changing wherever he puts whatever I was looking for! It's annoying. It's like, "shut the heck up and just tell me where it is?"

My biggest pet peeve is people who thrive on gossip. They always have to know what everyone else is doing and get into their personal business and then they spread it all over and 99 percent of the time they end up getting the story wrong.
