What Are Your Pet Peeves?

Like Tree29Likes

People who don't say "excuse me" or "sorry" when they bump into you (i'm talking a throwing-you-off-balance bump)
People who don't even aknowledge you when you hold a door for them (a comedian once remarked "you're welcome, your majesty!")
People who don't pay attention to whether or not they're parked too close to the car next to them (really? I shouldn't have to climb into my car from the rear passenger door)
when you smile or say hello in passing and the other person just stares blank. its basic manners ppl !!!

"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

Liars, cheaters, laziness
People who don't know when to go on four way stops.

Wearing socks on carpet. It feels weird to me. I have to be barefooted.

Beautiful restaurants with wonderful good tasting food but disgusting bathrooms. Yuck!

@tnatural, i agree about the four way stops. It seems like the people where i live either look at you in fear for forever when they clearly can go or they don't even stop in the first place.
People who say "like" too much.
People who talk as though everything is a question. You know, their voice goes up at the end of the sentence. "So I like went with Beth like to the mall? And like this guy tried to sell us Snuggees? And like Beth totally flipped him off."

Probably the most consistent things that annoys the sh_t out of me is the misuse of the words:

You've seen them all before, I'm sure. Or maybe you are one of the culprits who can't be bothered to memorize or figure out which one is which. Maybe you don't care, and probably I am a stupid biatch for caring. But I just can't help it. It looks wrong and gives the impression that the person misusing these words is either not too smart or really lazy and has no desire to do things right.

I know you're out there, and sorry if I sound righteous, but I promise it won't hurt you to get these words right... besides, it will be nicer for you too, because people will consider you smarter than they used to.

Did you notice I used the word you're when I said you're out there? Not your. You're, it even sounds different. It is a contraction (shortening) of the words 'you' and 'are'.

Your, on the other hand, denotes ownership. Your house, your car, your hair! "You are loving your hair" becomes "You're loving your hair". See? It's easy.

There and their sound exactly the same. Their house is over there.
Their also denotes ownership, when you are talking about a group.
There is a place.
They're is the contraction of 'They are'.

"They're moving into their new house, over there" she said, pointing down the street. lol

So.. I hate insomnia and what it does to me. Am I seriously giving grammar lessons here? I guess I had to get that off my chest. Sorry about that, ladies!!!

I pronounce "your" and "you're" differently.

I say "your" like "yore" (rhymes with 'core')

and

I say "you're" like "yoo're" (rhymes with 'fewer') I pretty much just slur "you" and "are" together.

This is just how I say it, though...

Since it's a shortened form of 'you are' the you part of you're sounds just like you with an r sound after it.

Hahaha some of the responses made me laugh :P.

I also don't like kids who misbehave or refuse to listen when you are trying to tell them what to do (to correct their behavior). Every time I do this to get the kid straightened out and it does not work, it makes me want to bang on the wall and scream.

Additionally, I hate it so much when people are very impatient when youare trying to help them out!
I really don't like inappropriate message tees. They are especially bad on children.

Example: "Hung Like Daddy"

I saw that on a baby boy's onsie today.
