View Full Version : Pet peeves?

One of my favorite pastimes (apparently) is going on tirades about Things That Bother Me, and these often waste a good three hours of the day if no one stops me. The other night, I started to complain about the peculiar subspecies of human known as the Tardus pedes, or more colloquially, the "Slow Walker". (You know the type, the ones who stroll at 0.5 MPH in the dead middle of the cereal aisle and severely hamper your quest to grab the last box of Frosted Cocoa Swirl Sugary Puffed Corn Flakes, or the ones who swagger along the sidewalk with such an annoyingly deliberate pace, you wind up missing the bus.) Anyway, a friend of mine cut me short and told me that everything bothers me (and that I should just shut up and watch the dang movie), and so I decided to make a mental list of all the things that drive me crazy. It turns out there are an awful lot.

So out of curiosity, what are your pet peeves?*

My abbreviated, abbreviated list is something like this:

Awful grammar
(Specifically: using "your" for "you're" or "it's" for "its" or using possessive forms for plurals, e.g., "lemon's")
Saying "like" about a million times in every sentence
The rough feeling of sandpaper or emery boards
People who insist on yelling into their cellular phones
"RAS syndrome" (Redundant Acronym Syndrome syndrome)
(E.g., "ATM machine", "PIN number", "HIV virus")
Disorganization/messes
Nauseating public displays of affection
Having to dry off with a damp towel


*(Obvious ones like "jerks" and "nails scratching chalkboards" and "cockroaches on the ceiling" don't count because I don't know anyone who likes any of those things.)

Especially those with what I call "forwarditis" who feel compelled to forward every cutesy email junk they get to everyone in their email directory.

Oh, and parents who allow their rugrats to misbehave in public because they're "just a child." I don't want your kid grabbing my hair from the booth behind me in the coffee shop or kicking the back of my seat in an airplane, and I don't want to listen to your kid screaming or crying in the supermarket because you won't buy him/her a candy bar. If I'd done anything like that as a kid I would have been smacked senseless. Nowadays they call that child abuse so kids get away with murder.

I hate my neighbor when he plays his loud music early in the day. Actually I love my neighbor (or at least covet his wife) and I love mexican music but I hate it loud when I'm trying to sleep in. Grrr!

I like to wear a hat when going around town and have quit a collection. I hate buttheads who make wise remarks about what I wear. If I catch them fixing to open their yaps, I look hard at their clown pants (or any clownish article of clothing they have on) and they soon realize that they don't want to go there. Hmf!

People who call the wrong number and when I say hello, they are just silent on the other end. My mother always taught me to say, "I'm sorry I have the wrong number." Is it really that hard? I can't tell you how often I'm tempted to call them right back when their number shows up on my caller ID and lecture them. That really ticks me off!!!!!

People who push the elevator button after I did, and it is clearly lit up. It is bad enough to push a walk button at a sidewalk but I will grant you, that doesn't light up, so maybe you think I'm a moron just standing there without pressing it. The elevator button though clearly shows it is lit.

People who are so distracted on their cell phone that they almost drift into my lane.

My mom trying to make a left turn (sorry Mom I love you dearly but you give ammunition to people who believe Asian women can't drive). She won't go if anyone is within a half mile of her. You could balance your checkbook waiting on her to make a left turn.

every time the person in front of me does that, I have a moment of fear where I think the cigarette will fly under my car and somehow cause my car to explode. I realize this makes no sense whatsoever, but neither does an overweight man with elves and magical tundra mammals, but we all believed in him for the first eight years of our lives.

Dog poo. I mean seriously who doesn't hate dog poo but it's getting worse around here in recent months.
It's hard enough as it is pushing a pram while having to watch my toddler like a hawk in case she decides to make a bid for freedom, without having to herd her like a sheep around the various deposits between our house and the shops.

She got a pram for her dolly recently and she's asked a few times if we can take her to the park, which sounds like a lovely idea but I don't fancy cleaning up the mess afterwards.
It's sad but I've found myself not going out so much for simple walks because it's too bl**dy stressful.

It's a pretty simple equation. Dog ownership=having to pick up after them. Yes it's gross but so is changing nappies and I don't fling them out the front door so everyone can walk in it. :mad: You just get on with it.

So yes, people who don't consider how their actions affect others. That can be pretty darn annoying. *shakes fist* :p

I aprove of this message!

I have a dog, and every apartment I've lived in so far has neighbors who don't pick up after their dog. It sucks for the responsible dog owners, such as myself who pickup, but have to worry about people thinking I'm the culprit. I have to go way out of my way sometimes to make sure everyone knows I pick up (carry around hands full of bags, etc). lol, it gets kinda paranoid sometimes. Who's watching me. :(

Most things that people do with cell phones like driving, dialing while making a left hand turn. It drives me nuts having to listen to half of someones conversation when waiting in line somewhere. Sometimes seems like cell phones have made the world a ruder place.

No doubt. Anyone working in retail can easily attest to that.

Most of mine have been said, but I'll add this: I can't stand it when a girl (and really, I've only seen girls do it) insists she's ugly no matter how many times/people insist otherwise. I've stopped acknowledging the comments all together.

"Hello."
"Agreed."

"Hello"
"Affirmative."

"Hello."
"Roger that."

"Hello."
"Indeed."

I always hope he doesn't do it in front of one of his high priced clients. And in a similar vein, I used to work retail, so holidays were always crazy,and I wanted to scream every time someone came in to buy a "Valentimes" present. Argh!

Just the other day I was walking toward the entrance of Wal-Mart and a man holding a very small baby was walking out (presumably with his spouse or girlfriend who was the baby's mom). The baby was crying and uncomfortable and threw up on dad. The guy walking closest to me let out a loud, sarcastic "Oh YEEEAH!" Really rude.

The next thing I heard was dad saying to his partner, "that's it, we're going to emergency."

Are you sure you haven't lost your mind? (Seven? Goodness, it must be like a constant carnival in your house! ...that actually sounds pretty awesome.)

Here are some others:

-When folks say "basically" a lot, usually unnecessarily. My dad uses "basically" in almost every spoken sentence. It is all kinds of stupid.
-The phrase "same difference". Whoever came up with that needs to have a brick thrown at his or her head. It's an illogical phrase and should not be allowed to be said because of it is so illogically sound. Seriously.

(Also, apparently in Britain, you guys have a pop group called "Same Difference" who came off The X Factor? And they have an album called "Pop", and apparently their first single was called "We R One"? I just listened to it. You've got to be kidding me. They're now on my list of pet peeves.)

Sometimes I wonder the same thing myself :)! 4 are adopted, 3 of which were potty trained when they came to our family. So, at least I did not birth them all and have to potty train them all (just 4)! I really dislike being pregnant! And I really dislike diapers! My youngest 2 just potty trained! Happy day!

So... another pet peeve is guys who pride themselves on not changing diapers and chipping in around the house.

But yes, my house is a carnival... it was tough at first to get used too, but now I am used to the chaos!!!

And the funny thing is one of my pet peeves is not being able to communicate with people who speak a different language. It is not that I am mad at them, it is more I hate that I can not communicate effectively to meet their or my needs. Then we adopt 3 kids who do not speak English... my husband laughs at me for this! I had to get over it real quick and I got very good at charades!

> Young people who believe they are all knowing, thus inconsiderate of those who blazed the trails and paved the path ahead of them
> Anyone who thinks they are the smartest, smoothest, cutest, person in the room
> The person who is always a victim and can accept no responsibility


That should cover the peeves of the day... !

This. Is. Terrific. (And it's been around for quite some bit -- how did I miss this?) Thanks!


People who complain .

Well, count me out of your List of People You Might Be Able to Get Along With (Maybe, at Some Point).

No, but really, I don't actually complain about these things out loud too regularly. Growing up, if I had a complaint, I was told to "shut up, suck it up and quit whining", so instead I have an unhealthy tendency to suppress everything. Hooray for issues!


Speaking of... I hate the term "Preggers" <-- in quotation marks, too.

"Preggers" is a weird word. Whenever people mention it, I always think of the canned sauce.

This mental association does not bode well for me.

Do you know what drives me nuts? People with no sense of humor. Also people who do not nip off the excess string at their tuners. It's especially bad when guitar players don't do it. Have you ever poked your finger with the string end on a guitar.
Man, that hurts, they are like little spears.

Hahaha -- well played, well played! I chuckled quite a bit at your posts.

The string thing also kind of bothered me as well, but mainly because I always thought somebody's eye would get poked out at some point.

Clicked on a link to youtube at this forum. Guess what? My browser is no longer supported. Problem is my hardware (eMac OS10.3.9) cannot handle pretty much most new applications/software. Nothing wrong with hardware or software. The machine has run trouble free since purchased new back a few years ago. Hate to waste $$s and fill the landfill to replace something that's not broken.
Today my Pet Peevvvv..... updates that are not back compatible..... Not a real major issue to fret over. Something that can be easily dealt with. Just a something to complain about.

- People who don't take anything I say seriously.
- People who pretend to be a friend to someone, but talk badly about them behind their back.
- Bad grammar and/or spelling. I can understand a small mistake every once in a while, but seriously? Pay attention in English class.
- Hypocrits
- Super-religious people who feel that everything they say must relate to their religion.
- People with anger problems
- Assumptions
- General rudeness and the like.
- "Y'all" I live in Texas, so I have to put up with it, but I hate it. "Ain't", as well. And "fixin' to". I just hate Texas slang in general, I think.
- A whole bunch that you all have already posted.
- Also, ITUNES. :(
