I hate people that don't listen when you are talking. I read this discussion to my husband and he said,"Huh? What?" Grrr!! Seriously I hate it! My mother is an even bigger culprit, you may be halfway through a conversation and she makes it very obvious she's lot interest and actually looks away! Grrr!!! What is your number one pet peeve?

Yes, it irritates me also, when someone does not pay heed to me or 'ignore' me. If I feel that I am not being paid any attention by the fellow in front of me, I stopped conversing and keep mum. Nothing could be more insulting and irritating than not listening to someone, when one desparately wants to share. Sometimes, my better half also does not pay any attention to my funny jokes, if I feel so.........I stop talking to her for few minutes.

It's very hurtful isn't it? It's the one thing I hate more than anything! It is so rude! Thanks for your response!

I hate when people say that they are going to call you back in a while and you wait two three hours and then they call you back.I suppose that in their defence I should have asked what they mean by in a while.To me that shows a lack of regard for the person but then they may add another point in thier defence"at least I called you back"

I know I find "I'll call you" is just a brush off sometimes. I don't like it when people promise they are going to do something even though they have no intention of following it through. Thanks for responding!

I hate it as well! Its quite off putting actually. My mom does it quite often when she has a lot of things to catch up and my sister would not hang up the phone. She has to have all her stories told right from when did she get up and why her daughter is not eating....On other times when she has enough time she would listen carefully. But I feel its more annoying when you know that you have to let go, have a lot to vent out but the listener, supposedly your close friend does not have the time! And when she/he has your rants die down!

I find it so hurtful when people that are close to you can't be bothered listening!

I have alot of pet peeves but I guess my main one would be ppl that create drama. The ones who lie or make things up just to stir the pot and get everybody riled up just so they can get attention. It's really irritating when someone does stupid things like that. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

I hate that too! I have to wonder if these types of people need attention because they are very insecure or what? Most irritating! Thanks for the response!

My pet peeve is being followed too closely by the vehicle behind me. Since I now drive a truck that's not a very good idea because one of these days I'm going to slam on my brakes and that vehicle is going to be in the bed of my truck.

I don't like it either, it makes me feel pressured to drive faster. Some people get so close it feels like they are just about in my back seat! I agree Thanks for responding!

I'm not keen on that either. However it's worse when someone who you think is listening to you suddenly says something irrelevent to your subject. That I hate.
