The Pet Peeve Thread

Recommended Posts

People who don't watch their kids in the front yard.

People who bring their kids to restaurants, but don't feel like watching their kids or disciplining their kids.

People who honk when they come to pick you up.

People who blare their music out of their windows (more problematic with teens.

I also get irritated with the pan-handlers who ask for too much money. Five dollars is an excessive amount to just randomly give someone on the street. By asking for $5, they just talked themselves out of $1

Essentially other people driving is a pet peeve of mine. People in the surrouding area should realize that I need to be on the road and as such should pull over or not even leave their home.

I feel that way more and more with each passing day.

Here's one thing I have always wondered... do the people who suck at driving think they're actually a good driver? Or do they realize they suck at it?

Who's telling you not to drink your beer?

People like James Dobson and his followers. Mind yer own business, Jimmy, If you don't want to drink then don't drink. Leave me be (as Doyle Hargraves would say).

When people treat their pets like humans. It is not cute, its annoying.

Extreme animal rights vegan people make me mad. I like meat. I don't like salad so buzz off.

Baby talk bugs me. No baby talks baby talk only kids who are babied and couples who think they are cute do it.

People who write checks for their $7 movie ticket or $5 ice cream and hold up the line. Just pay in cash.

Drunk people bug me. Do you have that little self control that you just can't stop guzzling beers.

Smokers bug me. It is disgusting.

Comedians who have only racist jokes. Carlos Mencia is the worst. We all know what the racial slurs are, you saying them for the 8,000 time doesn't make them any more funny.

Honor students bumper stickers bug me. Hooray for you, your kid can do well at Arthurs Middle School.

The honking thing to pick someone up. Are you that lazy that you can't walk 50 ft?

People who dislike whatever is big because "It was better before." IE: people who didn't like Borat because "He's funnier on his show on HBO" or people who don't like The Office because "The UK version is much more original."

Snobby people bug me too.

Emo kids bug me. Life is not as bad as you think.

I'm sure that I could think of more, but I don't want to sound like anymore of a whiner than I've made myself out to be in this post.

Drivers who KNOW that their lane is merging, but still go all the way up and force their way into your lane.

An opposite of a pet peeve is when big trucks or semis see this happening so they block both lanes so nobody can pass them and therefore cannot cut their way in front of those who waited their turn.

I completely agree. If I ever kill somebody, I bet it will stem from this sort of incident. Maybe that makes it more than a pet peeve...

or when you are in a strip mall and someone's in front sitting in a car while their friend "just had to run in". Park like everybody else.

People who hold conversations at the condiment bar in the cafeteria. Get your crap and move out of the way.

Ladies in line who wait to hear the total before unzipping their purse, finding their wallet, unfolding the wallet, unsnapping the wallet, then spending an extra 25 seconds looking for the penny so that they can get $0.35 back instead of $0.34.

When a manager comes by and asks you some stupid question about your personal life just as an icebreaker so that they can ask you to do something you don't want to. "How was your weekend?". Just get it over with and tell me what you want. YOu don't really care about my weekend.

This is the second time in three days that I've heard the phrase "emo kid." I don't know what that is.

I hate it when those FBI guys ask me questions when they already know the answer. It's a power play of some kind, showing me they know everything about me. I already know that they know and I know that my knowledge of this bugs them. They know they can't get away with it for long. You have the answers, fellas, stop asking and get to the meat of the questions.......

People who leave their shopping carts in the parking slot when they could walk ten steps and stick it in one of those cart corrals.

People who toss their trash on the ground instead of putting it in the trash can.

Being over charged at a sporting event for food and beverages.

I completely flipped out the people @ the grocery store a while ago when I gathered up about 10 carts & pushed them inside. They couldn't figure out why I would do something like that.

Basically, they're new age hippies. They complain about life and corporations, while they wear their Levis, Vans shoes, play their Sony Playstation on their Panasonic TV sitting on their Lazy-Boy couch. They listen to music where every song is whining, such as Fallout Boy. Emo kids hurt themselves physically to relieve their emotional pain. They dress in black with a band t-shirt, paint thier nails black and wear those belts with the studs in them. Emo kids are kind of like a cross between a hippie and a goth kid.

I've done this on occasion. One year on my drive home there was a section of highway there the two left lane needed to merge to the right. It was clearly posted for miles, everyone knew about it because the right hand lane was backed up, but all kinds of people would go flying down the left lanes. I finally got sick of it and pulled into the middle lane... I stuck right with the car next to me. Eventually someone else caught on and moved into the left most lane. The three of us just stayed that way and went along quite well. Amazingly, once the "cutters" all merged into the right lane ahead of us, we picked up some speed and moved along at a decent pace.

Of course, I got more than a few fingers and swear words tossed my way from the people behind me, but I also got a lot of thumbs up and smiles from people in the right hand lane who were waiting their turn.

A few more:

-- When you go to the store and the clerk is talking on a cell phone while ringing up your purchase. Put the doggone phone down, wait on the customer, thank him, then resume your oh-so-important conversation.

-- Dovetailing from the last peeve, I really hate it when a clerk fails to say "thank you" after ringing up my purchase. Now, I don't expect a store employee to lick my shoes because I chose to shop there -- but a simple "thank-you" is basic courtesy. Whenever this happens, and a clerk fails to thank me, when the transaction is complete I always say, "you're welcome, have a nice day, and thank you for allowing me to shop here." I've gotten a lot of funny looks doing that. One lady took offense. Well, you know what? Screw her!

-- I hate it when you put on your turn signal to move to another lane, and the driver in that lane hurries up so you can't get into the lane ahead of him.

I just thought of another one. When people use "of" instead of "have".

Example: "I would of done it, but I didn't have time."

I understand that when you say it as a contraction, it may sound like this.

"I would've done it, but I didn't have time."

But if you're writing it out, the word is have.

Don't forget about their hair, which is always dyed black, save for a little patch of blond right in the front.

I get irked when people roll through stop signs. I'm very punctual and I stop on the dime. I got a ticket last friday where two cars in the lanes next to me rolled through the stop sign. I stopped (I had to, otherwise I would have been smacked) and was not moving, then proceeded to go after about five cars ran the red light. I got pulled over for a rolling stop. I've never had as much as a speeding ticket in six years of driving. But the Dearborn Heights police are notorious for that - ruining good drivers' driving records.

I also have a pet peeve for those who refuse to use their turn signal.

The "frat boys" and "sorostitutes" that invaded Comerica Park this year also irritate me to no end. I thought that I'd never have to deal with them outside of school. The availability of baseball tickets and their cheap price relative to other sporting events make them more prone to attend the games, get drunk, and pretend to know what they're talking about. And then they start calling people names. But we've already had a thread on this, and I'll leave it there.
