Exclude any pet peeves you may have here at the forums...

What are your pet peeves?

One of mine is: I hate it when people try to drive and talk on their phone at the same time! If you want to make a call, pull over and do it!

there..your turn!

Got a couple:

1) People who repeat themselves over and over again...usually within the space of a few minutes.

2) People who have *long* verbal pauses.

3) People who speak loud and slow when I can't quite hear them.

Now, there is this guy I work with who does all 3...this is a test for me, I just know it...2 months so far and I haven't yet throttled him...yet...


Alicat

Oh yeah...just remembered one...but it's a small one: People who use the phrase, "In my humble opinion...". There is no such thing as a humble opinion. Kinda like saying I am more humble than you are...

People who throw litter on the ground 5 steps away from a trash can ...

People who always assume the worst of everyone, and ...

Politicians!

I would have to say people who are lazy at work and make everybody else's job soooooo much harder! And the kicker? They don't even care!

People who are always LATE.

People who are LATE and don't call.

Negative and judgemental people.

One little pet peeve that annoys me to HELL:

People on the bus who stand up before it stops.

I have tried to analyse this from every angle.
It's so illogical! WHY DO THIS?
All of the people who stand up first risk getting knocked over due to the lurching of the bus!
I've found that when on a bus, unless you're with someone, you dissolve into your own little 'bus world' and this is the accepted thing, this is what makes for happy bus travelling. People who stand up, draw undue attention to themselves and upset the 'bus world' equilibrium. I'm serious!!!
It's fascinating, and utterly annoying...

-people who think they're *better* than everybody else

-know-it-alls

-people who talk with a mouth full of food (yuck)

-people who blow their nose in public

-people who call me on the phone to "chat" and don't respect the fact that I am working and my office is in my house.... assuming that if I'm home, I must be just hanging out and doing nothing

there's several more, i'm sure.

Pet peeves... hmmmm.....

1) Being interrupted.

2) People not understanding that I am mostly always right.

3) Reduntant people who repeat themselves, again and again and again.

4) Those damn hyperbolic elipses.....

5) People who have to find things to be irritated about.

BTW - what is wrong with yellow cars? My car happens to be 'road sign yellow' lovely machine....

Bumber sticker of the month: I wonder if you would drive better with that cell phone up your butt.

1. Misspelled words, e.g., ellipses [see above, LOL]...[Sorry JP, couldn't resist...]

2. Run-on sentences.

3. People who have "been there, done that" 20 times better [with a point of exaggeration] and usually only express this to you at your highest and/or darkest time...[love those ellipses...] only to take away from you what ecstascy/sympathy you may have garnered or needed...

4. There's more, probably, but I cannot think of them today...

OK, ok. I had to come back! I read these and just couldn't think of anything to add until...I got this phone call today. You know the sales pitch will you switch your long distance? You politely tell them no, and they keep going. That irritates me! They won't take no for an answer. How do you politely hang up on someone? I don't know but I did it anyway! Ok, that's it for now!

Um. Pet peeves.
1) People who are 1 hour late and then expect me to laugh about it.
2) Slow computers that my grandmother's one-legged tortoise can run faster than.
3)People who keep on talking.
4)My parents.

Oh, I've got another one!

Anyone who has witnessed this knows exactly what I'm talking about.

When someone tries to physically threaten you by lunging at you with arms drawn back like a chickens wings.....WHY? I mean apparently a chicken has possesed their bodies so as to take revenge on all the people who have eaten a McNugget...oh wait, those aren't chicken....anyone who's eaten at KFC.....Maybe that's why these people are ready to fight at the drop of a dime too!

I hate complainers, whiners and gripers. Even if I agree with them! Constant complaining doesn't help anything.

Well you've all pretty much covered my list

Just add the number one thing for me~~~
INSURANCE COMPANIES.

There is nothing I despise more than thieves and insurance companies are nothing but incorporated thieves with lawyers on the payroll. Uh...oops...heheheh. Didn't mean to get on a soapbox

Bye now (slinks away quietly)

Well, since you asked:

1) Spelling errors

2) people who think they are God

~Coffee stains on a white coffee pot, or counter surrounding.

~Sugar...on kitchen floors...stepping in it at 5:30 in the morning with bare feet. (eewwww)

~The construction man who waits until the very last second to switch his little sign and jump in front of your moving car waving it around and yelling 'STOP!'

TELEMARKETERS

Especially the ones that call from the same company a million times a week.
