    Pet Peeve? As in ONE?? Surely you jest.

    Mouth noises. Mostly “someone” trying to suck something out of his teeth.”
    Not using turning signals or worse, using it at the last minute when someone was waiting for you and then you turn and they could have gone.
    People surprising me.
    TV on for “background” noise.
    Stupidly obvious questions.
    People making you feel stupid by saying things like “hello” or “well-yeah” like you’re a moron for asking a question.

    I’m pretty sure I’ll be back.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna be back once or twice… or four or five times (since this is my third posting…) on this one, too. Let’s see…

    Bicyclers who won’t share the road and insist on pedaling in the MIDDLE of the road.
    Not using turn signals
    People paying more attention to something else (cellphone, makeup, food, sex) than their driving
    People who finish a joke that you start
    People who tell the end of a book/movie/tv show while you’re in the middle of it
    Air guitar/drums

    yeah, I’ll be back

    How about when people chew with their mouths open, or when people leave the house without turning the t.v. off (cause everyone knows the cats like to watch mtv). People who tell me how to drive. 🙂

    I can’t think of much right now…but I can’t stand when drivers tailgate and don’t pass you when it’s clear! Also I hate when people are late/don’t show up for appointments. Gosh I’m sure I’ll be back

    Pet peeve . . . let’s see . . . workaholics who think that ought to be the norm; most things about my dang computer; people who ask for something at the 11th hour and then get offended or irritated when you decline; lies told to gain political points; having to take (and pay for) drug abuse classes to maintain my law license, even though I’ve always been a teetotaler (while criminals with drug records have no such requirement); anyone who claims they’d “pay a little more” in taxes to fund yet another social program; the race card; anyone who claims a pregnancy is the fault of someone who provided neither the egg nor the sperm; people who can’t think past their nose to avoid inconveniencing others; people who are “poor” but manage to spend more on day-to-day purchases than I do; people who are “sooo busy” but manage to keep up with all the tripe on TV; those ridiculous, overpriced “green” lighbulbs; people who insist that my child will DIE if she doesn’t have the chickenpox vaccine ASAP; and like everyone else said, I may be back a few dozen times . . . .

  7. DM says:

    people who leave nails sticking out of boards on a construction site.

    people who ” help” themselves to other peoples stuff w/o asking. ie. we have an apple orchard- I LOVE to share , but when my daughters boyfriend just grabs apples out of the crate and fills his pockets w/o asking it irks me.

    People who treat their children like they’re a huge inconvenience.

    Gotta go for now…. I just wanted to get this off my chest since I saw this woman at our pool yesterday complaining, fussing at and treating her 5 year old like a stupid little moron (stop bothering me, can’t you see I’m trying to read. Do you just want to go home?)

      Of course, I wasn’t there, but your comment reminds me of another debate I have going on at a “parenting” site. “When is a child old enough to be allowed out of your sight?” This is an area where I put a lot of thought and effort into helping my kids grow up. I let them do a few things independently (after getting them ready), and get accused (online, at least) of neglecting them out of laziness. Times sure have changed. Though I couldn’t see myself reading at the pool unless another adult (e.g., swim instructor) was in charge of my kid. I do read while they are in the bathtub, but that’s more to let them know that grown-ups actually read for pleasure sometimes!

    Mine: People who put dirty dishes on TOP of the dishwasher instead of inside it; people who feel free to comment on everything that you’re doing wrong, but then refuse to do the job if you offer it to them; mixing up the following: they’re, there, their. To, too, two. Here, hear.; the use of text-speak with anything but texting.

    Steve: people who don’t answer when he asks if they’re there (e.g.: at the gym, they use the machine that he needs silently, and when he asks if they’re there, they don’t respond. So he ends up sitting on them and they get ticked at him.) People who grab me and try to direct me while out walking;

  10. Laura says:

    Companies that use a picture of something in their ad, but when you click on that ad… that thing that you were clicking for is nowhere to be found.

  11. Nikki says:

    Chewing with their mouths open. People reading over my shoulder. When you’re watching a movie and someone says, “oh you got to see this.” or “this part is scary, gross, funny, ect.” That drives me nuts. Shut up and watch the dang movie. I don’t know hat else, I’m sure many more things bother me! Mainly, the chewing with mouths open is the worst.
