Dogs who don't know that I'm really the boss of them

People who bring their 'attitudes' to work - I have to spend 8 hours a day with them, they could at least TRY to be civil

Prejudice, Racism or Intolerance of any kind ...
be it race, gender, belief, sexual preferences, culture, financial status etc.
"homophobia" really peeves me ...
as does adults teaching their children to have these prejudices ...
"interrupting their innocence"

Impatience and rudeness ..
Public displays of the above ...
( especially by people with money who think they are better than the rest and dont have to wait their turn or should get special treatment)
Lying

and on a lighter note....
people who drive rudely and dont use their blinkers/signals... or let others in or out when they aren't going anywhere anyway while sitting in backed up traffic.
(and then honk at me when I let people in or out)

DJ's on the Radio that talk on top of the begining and endings of song ..ARRRGHHH!!

And OF COURSE there is that ever popular..
why cant ANYONE else in the house put a new roll of TP on the roller ????????
but hey ... I guess its job security for me right?

thats all for now any way ... lol

K, check! I have to agree: spirits visible, chairs imperceptible. Right.

All above lists after Karens addition... agree agree agree!!! (though I dont have that dog problem, Sharon... Sit, Chris! heheheheh... oh god, the giggles again)
Uhm.. anyway...

But Sea, you hit some special ones:
children without manners & parents that allow it (I'm one of those barely tolerant persons that will turn to their friend, mother, and esp. boyfriend and say, "My kids will NEVER be like that." Or, "I'll pay you if you kick them." which is usually followed by the correct response: "The kids or the parents?")
cruelty to animals...these people need to be SHOT. And for once I'm not being dramatic.
And:
men who stare at large breasts
LOL! Yeah, I believe Ive used the line, Hello? Yeah, Hi See these? Theyre not speakers.

When ever I'm anxious or in a particulary bad mood I get annoyed by people chewing their food. They don't even have to be chewing very loudly or slurping or smashing it up in their mouths, it just really gets my goat. That and chawing (that's right chawing not chewing) gum.
I remember this one time last year I was taking a test in English and the person behind me was just chewing and moving the gum around in her mouth. I almost had to leave! Either that or tell her I'd make her swallow it.  AHHH!

Joy

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us loose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

I am with SEA on the chewing with your mouth open.....

Then of course there is the inevitable ego that needs caressing by spending 99% of their time trying to convince the world how wonderful and special they are......(for Pete's sake....use some of the time PROVING it)....

People who shave or put on make-up while driving in rush hour traffic and of course the Donald Trumps wanna be's that read the Wall Street Journal on the steering wheel of their car.

Oh geez, with my hot temper anything is possible. lol

I hate being touched. Unless it's someone that I am in a very, very close relationship with or unless I clearly show that it is oke to touch me. This really bugs me.

Same as the whole "You're in my bubble" thing. I hate it when people stand too close to me. It's just rude and annoying.

I hate it when people seem like they're making up their own problems. They sit and complain about basically anything they can get.

People that gossip. 'Nuff said.

People that lie. Ditto.

People that are just plain stupid. I don't mean book smarts and things like that. I mean that they are just straight up ignorant.

Intolerance. Like saying that homosexuals are supposedly going to hell. Or that they should be shot. They can't help who they are. And why would God make people homosexual if he condemned it? Or racial intolerance. That is the stupidest thing ever! It's just skin color for cryin' out loud.

Bratty kids that whine and throw a tantrum every time they don't get what they want.

People that don't really LISTEN. They go on and on about how terrible *you* are when they aren't even listening to what you have to say.

Narrow-minded people. You know, the ones that say you're wrong simply because you're opinion isn't the same as their own.

The customers who come up to the counter and ask the prices (when they're posted in big bold letters right behind you) while you're right in the middle of something like helping another customer. Or like when they come up to you while your doing the trash or something and they go "Gimme a bottle of water and a turkey sandwich..." and then when you tell them that you can't take their order...they have to go to the cash register which is like 5 feet away they get all mad! It's so....

People that make up rumors about other people. That is so childish and petty.

When people constantly complain (edited by Alicat) about something stupid like you not being dressed for work...well..you can get dressed when you go to work...your boss doesn't care and there's no harm done...so why are they endlessly complaining and yelling? Makes no sense.

Well that's all I feel like spitting out right now. Buh-bye.



I am no one if not myself.

Oooh...I forgot!

Lack of manners. I mean I'll admit that I can be very vulgar at times and I cuss like a sailor, but I'm polite. People bump into me...I'll say "I'm sorry" or "excuse me" and probably with a smile just to show that it's alright and they don't say one single thing. Same thing with no "thank you"'s or "your welcome"'s. It's an easy thing to do, so why not do it? and when people say "Gimme" like you owe them something (when you really don't)...what's so hard about saying "Can I have..." or "I would like..."?

And chewing with your mouth open! Can you say 'EW'?!  

Guys that think girls are their property (edited by Alicat) and girls that think guys are there for the sole purpose of buying them things and making them look good. Pathetic! And controlling boyfriends/girlfriends...oh no...I don't play that game.

I also agree with just about everything that SEA said.

I am no one if not myself.

My pet peeves are:

Youths who just go around looking for fights.  You know the type - the rugged kids who sit around in the highschool hallways like mines, waiting to go off and freak you out if you're on their hitlist[in my case I'm on most hitlists, I ask too many questions, mwahahahaha]

People who can't or won't stop talking about petty things like money and sex.

People who try to push some BS philosophy over on me, like creationism or racism or patriarchy.

People who think that because I'm young I don't have a clue what I'm doing in life, and so therefore I need all the help I can get from adults.  Well, this one's a bit of a complicated one.  I guess I mean people who think that if I don't get their help, I'll ultimately fail in everything I do.  


And finally, the pet pieves of myself:

When I jump to conclusions

When I think everybody's out to get me because of a few rotten apples in a barrel of otherwise perfectly fine apples.

When I lock up and become shy when someone sits beside me on a flight.  Then I usually end up probably makeing this person feel awkward.

When I toil under the assumption that I'm the brains behind the operation.

Sorry about the language. I meant to come back and edit it when I got the little notice, but I had to leave for work and I'm sure you know how that goes. I'll behave myself.

pessimists who grumble and groan about EVERYTHING

people who LABEL other people negatively

phone calls when you're trying to write

politics (including office) and politicians

lint on black slacks

Yes, please chew with your mouth CLOSED

People who borrow things and don't return them

People who HAVE to be there 15 minutes early

when someone starts to tell you something important, or juicy, and refuses to finish what they were saying

typing in a long poem or reply, and getting booted before you can hit the submit button

getting any kind of sickness - yuck!!! - what a waste of time!

new shoes that feel okay, but an hour later are killing your feet

I don't mean to sound sexist here, but I recall a joke about a team of people trying to come up with the answer to the question of whether computers should be referred to as she or as he.[sorta like how boats are referred to as shes]

Anyhow, the men said that computers should be referred to as She because they store your mistakes away in memory for future retrieval.

lol, just had to bring that up after Serenity's comment.
