What Are Your Pet Peeves?

Like Tree29Likes

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.

Lying.
I hate when people put my clothes in the dryer. I also hate that I can't get mad at them because they were just trying to be helpful, but I NEVER put anything other than jammies in the dryer. Everything else gets hung to dry. I've had nice clothes for years that look like I just bought them because I DON'T PUT THEM IN THE DRYER!!!

I'd rather you just pile my soaking wet ish on top of the dryer and call it a day. Ugh!

It pisses me off so much. The anger is almost irrational, but it's so real lol
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
When people make others wait behind them while they try and make a left turn on a busy street for an absurdly long time when they could have just as easily took a right and a quick trip around the block.

People at the grocery store are so bad about this. People will sit there for 15 minutes trying to make a left turn, with a long line behind them. There is another exit that is left turn friendly, but they can never take that one. they very quickly could take a right and go around the block, but nope gotta stay on track.

Then the next person in line has to do the same damn thing!
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?

Thats a pet peeve of mine when people ask for fried eggs, you give them fried and they say this isnt what i meant. WHy don't people know the correct terminolgy of the differnt ways to make eggs???

People who have regular names that are spelled very STUPIDLY, yet throw a complete hissy fit when others pronounce the name incorrectly.

It'll be something like "Sch'Charles"....but if I pronounce it like it looks, I get my head completely bitten off "It's PRONOUNCED 'Charles'!!!"

One of my biggest pet peaves is people who don't reply to email or PM's (at ALL with no explanation they just ignore grrrrrr.....) or return phone calls in a timely manner.

Cold callers when they don't listen. Example from yesterday from a charity:

Charity: I see you did the Race for Life in Tatton Park a few years back?
Me: Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it, it was very muddy, dangerous and a girl broke her ankle
charity: Oh that's too bad, starts to blather on about a new cancer drug
me: oh right
charity: now can I ask if you'll donate 8 a month to fund research into this new drug?
me: I'll do it through work then at least theres a tax break
charity: that takes too long. how about I sign you up for 4 a month.
me: can I do it through the website?
charity: yes, but we prefer to know numbers straight away, how about 2 a month?
me getting annoyed: I'm not interested
charity: it's for a very good cause, rattles on with some more facts and figures
me pissed off: no, no, I'm busy, I said no!!!!
charity: are you concerned about giving your financial details over the phone
me: HANGS UP.

This charity has just lost any more donations from me.

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
This has probably already been mentioned but it happended this weekend a lot to me. When you are at a friends house visiting or going to dinner...and that friend is constantly facebooking or texting either on her phone or computer. Really seriously? You can't put the phone down for the weekend...I drove 2 hours to your house. I understand answering a text/phone call from the hubby or if you need a health update on family or friend but seriously...answering a text from a friend who is on a hiking trip with her boyfriend? Having to put in your morning quote on facebook because that is your thing? I love ya but your kids are right...your always on the darn phone or computer. I hate technology.

I use to have a friend that would take phone calls during a dinner from other friends...so you just have to sit their quietly while they talk...

Drives me nuts. It's called MANNERS!!!

Two things about public restrooms:

People who talk on their cellphones.
People who don't wash their hands.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
People who go gluten-free for no good reason (my bf's mom did this).
People who play extremely loud music in the subways and on the subway platforms. The subways are loud enough. Do you not see many of us with our fingers in our ears? Are you all deaf?

Ohhh good one, I hate saggy pants or the tshirts long enough to be nightgowns lol
^Know what's worse? Saggy pants with intentionally short shirts. I saw this guy wearing a tight muscle shirt and pants that were strategically worn way low --- just above where his penis would start to pop out. So, tight muscle shirt, I think it may have even been tucked into his boxers, the boxers, baggy pants worn with a belt no less. From the back, about a third of the butt cheeks. Awful.
lol Ive seen that a few times
I wonder if guys knew where the saggy pants originated from, would they still wear them?? Food for thought.
