What Are Your Pet Peeves?

Like Tree29Likes

Drivers who continue to go 30mph on the onramp; you're merging with traffic going 55-70mph - pick it up a bit so I don't get slammed or have to hole-shot your slow azz!

Similarly, drivers that don't understand the passing lane and won't get the hint to move to inside lane when others are going faster. Simple driving 101.

Using "like" a million times in a conversation. My teen is really bad about this- so distracting and annoying. I've starting counting the number of times she says it to try to help her get out of this habit.

Bad grammar & "textspeak" on forums. Good gods, if I wanted to do puzzles while reading I'd do crosswords or sudoku, not read cryptic, abbreviated, nonsense . Have to say nc.com is so great about not having these posts/ people for the most part, love that we take time & effort to write with some intelligence ( auto corrections forgiven !)

Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
People who cannot seem to talk on their cell phones (which they should be doing it hands free but......) anyway on their phones and cannot seem to maintain the speed limit. Ecspecially when they are sitting in the left PASSING lane. Drives me nuts! Get off the phone, or go hands free, or use that great thing called cruise control when we are on the interstate or bypass!

Being stuck behind people driving around the supermarket carpark looking for the closest space to the door when there are plenty slightly further away. God forbid they take a few more steps and have to walk a bit further to the store.

--People who post negative reviews on products when THEY made a dumb decision/grave error.

Here's one on the bonnet hairdryer I have, went something like this:

"Bonnet kept falling off, so I hooked up my own handheld dryer to the bonnet and IT MELTED THE ENTIRE THING!!! The plastic attachment ring of the bonnet is completely melted!!! This thing is a piece of CRAP!!!"


..........really???

Forced parental participation in schools. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about encouraging parents to get involved in their kids education and helping them, but my god, some days I feel like I have more "homework" than they do.

Those chicks with the bipolar relationship facebook statuses. Example:

4:35pm "A heart is one thing you should never break. You'll get yours! Karma is a biatch. Callin' up my girls cuz tonight it's on!"

4:55pm "Can't wait til you come home. You're my everything. This is destiny forever!!!"


Seriously!?? Come on!

I hate when I order a hamburger and the waitress asks if I want cheese. That would be a cheeseburger. How hard is this?

I hate when my coworker gets on her high horse about how much better everything is in NYC. The other day she said that "nobody in Florida knows how to fry an egg." Yes... NOBODY in Florida knows how to fry an egg.

She said that in NY, they have these diners that have breakfast 24 hours a day! I said, "Yeah, we call that Denny's." No, no, no she insists. They fry the eggs on one side and then gently flip it over so the yolk is still runny. I said, "you mean 'over easy?'" No, no, no.. it's different up there.

Seriously?

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
People who behave like passive aggressive children when a simple "excuse me" would suffice.

People who insist on driving 10-15 miles UNDER the speed limit on twisty country roads. Okay, I sort of get that, but when you insist on going that slowly, at least stay on the right dogdamn side of the road. I was behind a minivan (of course) where the driver was going 30 miles an hour in a 45 zone (where most people actually go at least 50). Yeah, it's twisty, so I get wanted to go slowly. But the driver COULD NOT stay on the right side of the road. In hindsight I wonder if they weren't under the influence, but I didn't get that vibe at the time. Just exceptionally bad driving.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because itís dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that itís about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being ďPC,Ē youíre not being forward-thinking or unique. Youíre buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and youíre keeping those systems in place."

I hate when im sleep next thing I know it 2 am and people driving with the car bass up super loud

I keep thinking of more!!

When people wear super long jeans and drag their feet. Or just make a lot of noise when they walk!

I hate when people rep where they're from whenever they go somewhere. (Club,grocery store,bus stop, walking down the street, sitting in the house)
Ex: Guy:Yea I'm from brooklyn, all day, every day baby! Me: but right now you're living in VA and you've been here for about 15 years now. You moved out of brooklyn when you were what 5 or 6y old. Sooooo....I think you're from Va now but it doesn't really matter anyway. What does being from brooklyn have to do with anything??
I hate when peoples kids have asthma and the parents smoke around them

We adjunct professors have to share an office, and there are a limited number of desks and computers. One older English professor leaves her crap on one of the desks and her backpack parked beside it while she goes and teaches her classes, expecting it to be there when she gets back--in effect, claiming that desk as long as she's there that day. I moved her stuff the other day, but she keeps doing it, and today she had a big ole Whole Foods bag on the desk in addition to her usual stuff, with her name written huge in marker. I didn't move it today, but will not hesitate if there are no other desks available.

This is probably pretty petty but this morning I accidently brought my kiwis to work, yes the fruit (I went grocery shopping and they were in the candy bag and the candy bag came to work).

I took them out of the plastic bag and put them on a paper plate in the communal kitchen, because I didn't want to leave them in that plastic bag all day. I left it in the kitchen because, well its a kitchen and my desk is pretty messy and hell everybody leaves stuff in the kitchen.

A coworker comes in and asks if those are for everybody? I was like I guess if somebody wants a kiwi sure. So she says she's going to take one. I was in the plant most of the day and when I came back to my office my plate of kiwis were on my desk with one missing.

OK, take the damn kiwi but why put the plate on my desk. It was in the kitchen for a reason. Everybody leaves crap in the kitchen this is the first time I've ever left anything personal in the damn kitchen and it becomes a federal case.

I realize this is small potatos but damn. (or should I say kiwis)


ok, this really isn't the right thread but I couldn't find the other one and this was close enough.
