We all have Pet Peeves.....I've listed a couple that are mine and some that I've heard from others. Would you like to add some to the list. You'll feel better.  Wink
People that honk when it is obvious that no one in front of them is moving!
People who don't use their turn signals!
People who push their bodies or shopping carts into you while standing in line!
Relatives who turn up unexpectedly!
People who don't answer you questions!
People who pop their gum while you're trying to talk!
Telemarketers who call at dinner time! (anytime for me)
People who have "been everywhere and done everything"...not!
Everyone wanting to sue somebody for something!
Rude and sick spam email that cannot be traced back! GO AWAY PEOPLE!
The sound of the drill in the dentist office!
Doctors offices-you make an appt. & you're on time (taking time off work) & you wait & wait...&....

People who push their body's

Don't mean to offend Poogie, but one of my pet peeves is using the possessive (apostrophe s) for the plural (just s or ies).  It's (as in it is) not so bad on a web forum, where we are usually just typing straight on (except for me, who has to go back and edit out grammatical mistakes before posting) but in signs and newspapers -- where presumably there's been some thought and they still make that error.  Grrr.  Hatred Hatred

And people who have to drive around with their 500+ watt car stereos turned up to eleven.

BounceGiggle  BounceGiggle That's even more funny. What makes it even more funny is that I would always correct my daughters spelling and punctuation before she turned in her homework. Thanks again......I'll learn the English language one of these days.  TeddyR

Pet Peeves ... hmm being a grumpy old man I have many.

People who [you know] say [you know] you know between [like you know] every word [you know]. Makes me want to pitch their head off ... you know.

People who wait for a parking spot one space closer to the door ... (got your lard ass out and walk a little further)

People who cant pay the bills on time. (Mainly this only applies if I'm the one who is owed)

People how over use slang .. slangs' fine ... but remember time, place and manner.

Gangerster [C]rap music at any volume.

Morons on planes the set in the back and put their carry on in the front overheads ... I will take it out and tell the flight attendant to check it. (Beware!)

People talking during a movie.

Peeps dat ty-p N l33t (Have me come through the screen and smack you!)

Sight-seeing rubbernecker that drive about 30 in a 55. (Can you say TAILGATE w/ hi-beams on)

Fast food idiots that can master simple basic math. (Guess that's why they are where they are.)

People that leave their car at the pump then lollygag around in the store while I wait to fill up.

Anyone that calls themselves an 'expert' on anything.

Fat women in spandex.

Any drug commercial, hair commercial, Nutrasystem commercial, anything with Billy Mays.

oh I have more but I'll stop ...

I know a couple of people who do this all the time, in lieu of smacking the crap out of them I counted the number of times they said, I was like, it was like, we were all like, they were all like and so on. In a conversation that lasted about 20 minutes these two used that phrase or a variation of it 17 times, if I wasn't related to them I'd have killed them.

 My other pet peeve is fat people at the grocery store, I don't mean overweight people, I mean people who take up all the room in the aisle, shove the cart diagonally across the aisle then go to the opposite side and read the ingredients on a package, while their children orbit around them like live killer asteroids. I'm really getting tired of saying EXCUSE ME and getting no response, what I would like to say is, well I'm not going to post it, but it's short, to the point and very rude.

What really bugs me is when someone has a headlight out on their car so they turn their brights on.
The headlight that's out will have the bright come on and then I get blinded.

People who have insanely loud cell phone rings.  Do they really need to be up that loud?
It's even worse if someone has a song programmed into it to ring and they let it play on purpose because they want everyone around them to hear what a cool song they've got on their cell phone.

People at the grocery store or Wal-Mart who have about 1000 items in their cart and see that I only have 1-2 items in my hand but don't let me go through the checkout lane first.
This usually happens late at night when the express lanes are closed.

Hitting my head on the top of the door frame when I get out of my car. 

Getting shocked at my workplace every single time I touch something metal. 
These aren't just minor shocks either...these are big, loud and painful shocks.   Buggedout

SUV's and other gas guzzling vehicles.
Especially when they pull up right behind you at a stop light.  When I see them in my rear view mirror, it's like having a giant bear or monster right behind me breathing down my neck.

People who take up the whole aisle talking with someone they know when they meet at the grocery store. You know there are other people coming through sooner or later, leave some damn space.

People who repeat their relaying of events several times in the same conversation. Unless you have more details and info, or unless I ask you to repeat yourself, once will do it.

Thumping stereos and DVD players in cars that are playing while people drive, especially if they're backseat monitors and no one is back there to watch. Yeah, we get it, you have disposable income (or want us to think you do) to spend on stupid crap and toys for your car. I'll throw spinner rims in there too, especially when it's the only custom thing on an otherwise stock car. Saw some on a plain Ford Focus or Escort the other day.

Bosses who want you to figure out their problem, but don't know anything about the methods and means you have to use despite it being part of their job. Then having to spend half the time getting them up to speed on that. May just have to start a work rant topic instead to cover this.

Lame old jokes that people keep retelling.

Low talkers at work who can't figure out from the several dozen times I tell them I can't hear them over the machinery when they stand over 15 ft. away. If I could read lips that well, I'd get a better job working with the deaf or something.

Remembering the apostrophe (') s rules, mostly plurals. I have to refresh myself on them often. You'd think they'd stick by now.

Enough for now.
