People who constantly say "obviously" "basically" "at the end of the day".

I like efficiency, so pretty much anything that slows me down is a pet peeve:
  1. slow walkers on the sidewalk, or groups that aren't paying attention, and are just meandering around
  2. On an escalator, anyone that doesn't obey the "stand to the right, walk to the left". I have very irrational anger over this. I fantasize about just shoving people sometimes. I need help.
  3. On a train or bus or elevator, people who stand at the doorway instead of moving in. I fantasize about shoving people here, too. I think I need to go to more yoga.
  4. When driving, cars that basically swerve to the right in order to take a left turn, blocking as much traffic as possible. Really, anyone blocking my lane is a pet peeve.

Aside from efficiency-related things, I have a major pet peeve about people not trying things. People who say they "don't like apples", for example, but haven't eaten an apple since they were 3 years old 40 years ago. Or say they don't like something that they've never tried is even worse. You've never tried it! You can't "not like it"!

I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
People who pee all over toilet seats and don't wipe up their mess before leaving the stall/bathroom.

I don't know if this has been said, but people who whip out in front of you on the road and then go SO SLOW.

This phone makes accurate punctuation unnecessarily difficult.
Last relaxer: 8.4.10
BC: 9.6.11

when will your favs?

Slow people

Crying babies at the movies...(come on, if you can afford the movies, I'm sure you can afford a babysitter. If for some reason the baby sitter canceled at the last minute, rent a movie and let the rest of us watch the movie in peace!)

Noise

People who think I should know what celebrity they're talking about when they say the name Jennifer.

inconsiderate people
Nosy people

People who don't say thank you when you hold the door open for them.

People who talk on their cell phones while at the doctors office. Come on people...walk outside, no one really wants to know your business.

Facebook... How many times have you talked to someone you knew, decided you didn't want everyone to know your business, gave the people your personal email address, only to never hear from them. Sorry, am I only worth speaking to when others can see what you're saying to me?

To sum it up..................My pet peeve are PEOPLE!!!!!! (All of you are excluded from that...I love each and every one of you)

Hair Type : 2c/3a
Hair Texture - Fine
Porosity - Normal
Elasticity- Low

Every curly should get a hair analysis



Yawning and talking at the same time

So I have to unload and rack them before putting my own weights on the bar. I suppose I get a bit of an extra workout out of it but it really pisses me off.
I have recently developed a new peeve over the course of a few months.

I hate when some random strange dude (usually one I wouldnt even look at once) ask me,"What you mixed with?" after i tell them, their follow up question, "You date [insert their race here(usually black)] guys?

Why would you ask me that?? It offends me and piss me off! I dont care about the race, but just because you asked me that, HELL NAW I WOULDN"T DATE YOU!! And it has nothing to do with your race.
People who sing every lyric to every song at the top of their lungs at a concert. As if to prove what a super fan they are.
I didn't come here to see you perform, thanks.

--ANYBODY who chews/snaps/cracks gum....or chews with their mouth wide open. I will and have used earplugs--in the company breakroom, in a store--to keep from busting someone in the head.

--People who act so entitled and oblivious to everyone around them when receiving customer service. On the same ticket, people who are rude to service personnel for no damn reason. I have to restrain myself from butting in and cursing them out.

--People who think they're cute; excessive hair flinging/fondling/flipping, trying to walk like a "model", stank snotty "I'm the sh*t" facial expression. I just.cannot.stand.it.

--People who "hate to read"

--"Friends" who act differently towards me when we're around certain people.

--Poor travelers....i.e., people who don't want to walk anywhere.....or when several (or all) of my traveling companions refuse to eat any of the local cuisine or try a local restaurant. HTF can you go to NEW YORK CITY and "oh, we'll just eat at Wendy's" every fricking day???? Wendy's?? WENDY'S!!! UURRGGHHHH!!!

Similarly, I HATE when certain traveling companions don't know how to dress/act when far away from home. I HATE when some of them INSIST on dressing "sexy/clubwear" regardless of the setting. Or act stupid, loud and thirsty for attention. HATE. IT.

It's true, some people you really CAN'T take any-damn-where. I've started turning down invitations if certain people are going and there's no way to avoid them (splitting up and going our own ways, etc.)

People who are unnecessarily negative/ people who ask for your advise or suggestions and have an elaborate reason as to why NONE of your suggestions will work.

People who ask questions to give their response (did you even attempt to listen) along the same lines people who converse one sided (while you speak they are formulating their thoughts not listening.)

It annoys me when people refuse to be resourceful. Do you really need every answer in life handed to you on a silver platter with a side of fries?

Nothing bugs me more than someone breathing on me... It has the potential to ruin my day it's pretty bad

ANd whats worse is when they dont use it or at the end of your hours long search when you could had been doing something to benefit you, they say, "oh never mind i dont need it anymore"
Missionary trips. I think it's great if people want to go to other locations and countries and help out, but don't bring your d@mn religion into it.

As many said above I can't stand people lol.
1. When people misspell words, or use the wrong word in a sentence. ****Example**** "People have "TO" much time on "THERE" hands.

2. When people type like this. "Yuh N33d tuh 0p3n uuhp m0!" (Aaaagh that just drives me crazy) isn't it easier to type normal? 3. Walking on wet floors or carpets. 4. When people stare. (Really? Either say something or move along). That's all I can come up with right now but I can write a book on all my pet peeves.
