Rightyho,

I want to know your pet peeves, what rattles you cage, what puts a bee in your bonnet, what makes you see red, what, in short, annoys you the most?

So - what gets your goat?

I'll start:

Bad Grammar :mad:

People who don't indicate on roundabouts. Or acknowledge you if you have to pull in and let them pass in narrow roads.

Bad Grammar :mad:
Heck yes. I especially can't stand when people say "there is" or "there's" when they should say "there are." It happens all the freaking time.
quoting a huge post to type a one-line reply.
I concur, and would also like to add my hatred for the quoting of image heavy posts.

Or people who put "My Photo's" because "My Photos" doesn't look right

People who don't look at you when you talk to them

Mixing up "then" and "than"

Flagrant use of smileys, quoting a huge post to type a one-line reply. Oh, and quoting a post just to say "I uhgree one hunded purcent!!1!hur :p :D :tea: :wve:"

But what if you do agree with them? Would you have to repeat their entire post?:tea:

My pet peeves:
1.The ":wve:" smiley.
It's used in unrelated situations that don't include saying 'hello' or 'bye' e.g "Your mom is a slut :wve:"

2.People who quote people as being illiterate just to make themselves seem right and the other person stupid.

3.Ignorant people

Quasimodo
19-01-09, 22:03
But what if you do agree with them?

Nod, smile, resist the urge to up your post count? Or elaborate on why you agree.


*After the number of posts here on the topic, I'm glad roundabouts are quite rare where I live.

Voni
19-01-09, 22:04
1. The not signalling at roundabouts thing. THE INDICATOR STICK IS RIGHT THERE, YOU LAZY $*^"!!!
2. Rudeness. I cannot STAND it. There's no need to be rude, grrrrrrr...
3. Uptight and/or stuck up people. Chill out! Life's too short.

As for me my numero uno pet peeve are people who:

-Complain constantly
-Spelling mistakes (Though I may be one of those people :o)
-People who judge things/people without getting to know them. (I do this sometimes too :o)

Well that's all I can think of at the top of my head at the moment. :p

19-01-09, 22:22
I know this is kind of ironic BUT:

People who whine or complain too much

People who don't know when to use who and when to use whom.

Old people. They smell of urine and try to mow you down on mobility scooters, they also like to team up in crouded places and walk very slow in a line so you are either forced to walk at a snails pace behind them, glaring angrily at the back of their heads or crawl under their legs. One old woman nearly poisoned me once with the stench of her hair, I think she left a perming kit in or something but my eyes were watering and I was forced to sit behind her on the bus. I was tempted to spark my lighter but the whole bus would have gone up, not just her hair.

jamieoliver22
19-01-09, 22:29
Bad Grammar :mad:

I agree.

People using your and you're incorrectly.
People using borrow and leant the wrong way around.
People using taught and learnt incorrectly.

People using text language when it is completely unnecessary, just to allow them to stop typing one extra letter... :pi: Things like "4rm" instead of "from" and "m8"... I mean, come on. I can understand in texts because of character limits, but on emails/IMs/forums, it is just annoying.

I'm not the best at grammar/spelling myself, but things like that still bug me.

Gabi
19-01-09, 22:31
Apart from some that already have been mentioned, it drives me mad when people use "should of" instead of "should have". Not only is it grammatically wrong, it makes no ****ing sense.

Absolutely to all the above!

People who never seem to be satisfied in anything and think they are above everyone else. Fail to satisfy them and you're an pathetic looser.
Arrogance.
Stubborn people.
People who can't admit they are wrong/think they are always right in everything.

Geck-o-Lizard
19-01-09, 23:33
I have OCD for spelling, grammar and punctuation. :\

People who don't know when to use "there", "their" and "they're"; "your" and "you're"
People who think they know how to use "who" and "whom"; "will" and "shall" and do so erroneously
People who "could care less" when they really couldn't
ppl wot rite lik dis
People who use elipses... after every comment... to make it sound... thoughtful...
Unnecessary apostrophe's
Commas used, where they aren't needed
The word "colorize"

oocladableeblah
19-01-09, 23:44
People who think they are so "cool" and above everyone.
People who just act like total dicks to everyone (pretty much the same thing as the above)

"Bros" or however you spell it the people with the kahki shorts, long black sock, skater shoes, black t-shirts, sunglasses, and a hat. I don't hate their clothes, but they all seem to act the same and they think they are so tough.

Gangsters and the way they act is just annoying and **** me off.

People who don't pay attention in class, but they take the tests and do good on them just because they are good test takers. My friend is like that, he has never studied for a test in his life and he gets good grades on them it ****es me off so much.

I reserve quite a fair bit of passionate hatred for those who butcher the English language, especially when they make up words that don't even exist, such as:

"Guesstimate"
"Quantify"
"Acrosst"
"Nuculer"
"conversate"

The list goes on.
I also can't stand excessive use of exclamation and question marks!!!
Especially one is incorrectly used instead of the other!!! Such as now? This often accompanies poor grammar!! And poor spelling??

These also drive me nuts: "thankx" or "thanxs"
"cux" (wtf??) instead of "cuz" instead of "because"
"4rm". Seriously? 4 is spelled f-o-u-r. If you add "rm", that does not make "from". It makes "fourrm". :cen:

Mine, even though it's extremely self-centered-ish sounding is, that I can't stand eye makeup colors that don't match. I feel awful about it and I've gone to the point where I've offered to do people's right at the counter without telling them why.

I feel awful about it. :(

I share the sentiments of everyone that has brought up bad grammar or poor spelling.

I also hate the sound of a southern accent. Like south of the Mason Dixon kind of southern.

Lets see my pet peeves

1) People that don't use Common Sense. Every one has it but not every one seems to wanna use it. And it drives me insane.

2) Mean comments/Spam: Now hasn't your mother ever taught you if you have nothing nice to say dont say it at all? Whats up with spam and mean comments? They are only there to annoy the poop out of every one else.

3) Self centered people always worrying about them self's and them self only.

4) People moving my stuff. Coming into my room and moving my stuff around and not putting it back. Annoying

5) Cheating is also a pet peeve dont think i gotta get into why. lol

6) People making me feel guilty. Thats all I gotta say.

20-01-09, 03:44
Bull****. I hate it when something bad happens without any logical explanation to it. Eg; when I suck at English when it is my native language.

Here's another example. When things like this happen to me:

I don't really mind making up words, but I can't stand "acrosst" and "nuculer" because mispronunciation is another pet peeve of mine. It's not "nuculus", so why would it be "nuculer"? Other bad ones include supposably/supposively, heighth, asterix, and ecsetera.

Back to that popular topic of grammar, what annoys me more than other people's bad grammar, is my own. I know the difference between they're, their, and there. I know when to use each one. Yet I still find myself typing or writing too quickly and using the wrong ones. (Fortunately, I usually manage to spot these mistakes, but they shouldn't happen at all!)

Besides the ones that have already been mentioned, I also find conspiracy theorists incredibly annoying. It's often impossible to have an intelligent conversation with one and they're often completely nuts. I also can't stand people who treat an opinion as if it is fact.

Pan
20-01-09, 07:28
Shall and will, should and would, who and whom, less and few.

The most annoying forum peeve is when people but 'teh' instead of 'the', I'm OK with a bit of lolspeak, but in context only.

Bad Grammar :mad:

Hear Hear!

And...


People who don't realise what they've said contradicts their point
Idiots who come to my work, and upon hearing that we've sold out of some sale item, proceed to abuse me for the fact that they live 3 hours away and failed to call and ask if we had the item in stock before they left on this special trip to get the afore mentioned item.
People who make up their own words, or blend two words in a failed form of contraction that then makes them sound stupid, eg. "yous" instead of "you guys"
The people in horror movies who think going upstairs is the best way to get away from the monster, or ghost, or axe murderer chasing them.
People who don't research the topic they are debating before making a sweeping statement
People who play the "your mum" card when fighting with their siblings
Dumb****s that after purchasing something (eg. a rucksack), beep at the security doors and do not come back to the counter when I call them so that I can remove/deactivate a tag. They then call some time later complaining that there is a hard tag on their rucksack and they live too far away to come back and get it taken off and think there is something I can do about it. Sort it out yourself or COME BACK WHEN I ASK YOU TO DILLHOLE!


And my number one pet peeve that I can't stand above all the other things that have ever annoyed me...

PEOPLE WHO CHEW WITH THEIR MOUTH OPEN AND/OR SPEAK WITH FOOD IN THEIR MOUTH!!!!

Accept in the case where the flu is present and they do this to breathe...but ONLY if they cover their mouth to do so, I dont want to see your masticated dinner while I'm trying to eat mine. Learn some manners you grot.

I agree, that is truly annoying.

My main online pet peeve is a type of troll which is played by the kind of person you'd think should know better. Normally middle aged, always male, intelligent, able to form sentences and capatalise; they're good at structuring arguments on a forum. They make it their hobby to post belligerently and stir trouble, predominantly in a passive aggressive manner.

I think it's normally caused by some deficiency in their personal life (overbearing partner, problem with offspring, boring career, etc) which makes them seek a feeling of control and boosted status online (often by winning arguments with younger posters, or gaining the support of children). I surmise it's a form of escapism for them. I've seen it a few times in different communities, it's tiresome and pretty sad. They should take up a more constructive hobby like knitting or something :D

Mine are all small things but they right rat me off.

-When someone constantly itches themselves. Like, they sit there on the bus/train whatever and just won't move their hand off their belly/head/leg whatever for itching it.
-Constant sniffling...USE A TISSUE! This is worse when you're somewhere like the cinema or in an exam.
-People who snort up their snot and then spit it out. Ew.
-When you say excuse me to someone and they ignore you. You repeat it, and end up having to like..budge past. They look so offended but what on earth?!
-People who stand in the street having a mothers meeting and look as though you've just shot them down when you ask them to move.
-People who are so sucked into their own subculture that they refuse to accept that things from other "groups" is good.
-Skin rubbing together...Oh noes!!!!!!
-The sound of nail clippers.

I'll stop.

There's this 35-year-old in my French class (the rest of us are 16 and 17) and he has this rude smirk he puts on every time one of us doesn't know something. He attended these classes twice as long as I have, and we're still the same level. Shouldn't I be the one to smirk? So annoying.

Omg I can't believe I forgot about those people!

And on the note of moving and such, I also hate the people that expect me to know that they want to change into my lane on the motorway WHEN THEY DON'T INDICATE!!! These same dillholes then procede to barp me, flip me off, and - I presume - scream expletives at me. I'm sorry f-tard but I CAN'T READ YOUR ****ING MIND!!!:cen:

Then theres the twat that is tailing me (again on the motorway) so close that I can see the coffee stains on his teeth when he says the F word because, in spite of the fact I'm already 15km over the speed limit, I'm still not going fast enough for him (and yes it is ALWAYS a him, and I ALWAYS do at least 10km over the limit). Hey **** face, I'm already going 120kmph and I'm on my Provisionals, AND I am only one speeding fine away from losing my liscense, so, if you don't like my speed CHANGE ****ING LANES!!!:cen:

Dickwad drivers are definitely another peeve of mine, and a BIG one.

I agree somewhat on bad grammar. But from what others already posted in this thread, I know I certainly never remember to use "whom" instead of "who". :p I also spell both "its" and "it's", two which should be distinct, uniformly as "it's".

On these forums in particular, I find it... Well, funny actually, how just about no one seems to know how to spell "bought". It's not unusual at all to read how someone "brought" a game the other day. :p

Well I wouldn't mind usually but I went through self-checkout today and it was a DVD so it had to be age-checked. It was a 12 lol (I'm 18) and the woman seemed bothered that I had asked her over. Then it came up as £5 and the actual DVD said £3. So I told her and she kept looking me up and down, eventually she sighed her way to the help bit and changed the price.
I think if my boyfriends Mum hadn't been with me she'd have thought I was trying to fix the price so I was paying less.

People who complains on peoples English or english grammar and simply don't care that they doesn't have it as a first language.

That REALLY annoys me.

Also people who decide to turn right and they don't get all the way into the right turn lane so I have to slow down just so that person can turn. If they were fully in the lane I could go by them with ease, but no they have to cause traffic.

I may be totally alone on this, but I really dislike when people give their pets human names.

A dog named Jake or a cat named Amber is just...creepy.

Whatever happened to descriptive, ridiculous names like Killer or Kujo, Chaos or Bruiser?

Hm?

My dog's names growing up were: Gizmo, Psycho, T-Bone, Alf, Aldo Cella...

^^ I have a newt named Molly, but I named her when I was 10, and she's still alive.

My other newts are Angillas (after one of Godzilla's friends), Kieran (because it means "dark-skinned warrior", so it's appropriate for this critter), and Haun-ti (after the Chinese god of war).

Now as far as pet peeves go . . .

People who talk over you in middle of a conversation.

People who moan over spellings and grammer online not knowing if the other person has dyslexic or does not have English as first language.

Guys who get a cold and think its the end of the world, they end up in bed for a week. Try being a girl and having period pains AND then going to work and not complaining because its part of life for a girl.

I agree with all of these, I hate it when i am in school and I have to get to the opposite end of it (and I am in a pretty big and spread out school) and I have 2 minutes and people clog up the hallway and are slow. I hate wasting my time in a class that I don't learn anything in its a waste of my time and tax payers dollars.

1. I just push them out of the way, if someone is too self centered to be walk without a care in the world they don't deserve my respect. :p Nah, but I do try to step ahead of them as courteous as possible.

2. Try having one who hasn't taught in 20 years and is incapable of operating a computer...in a computer database class. :pi:

3. I know seriously, its even worse when they intentionally do to fish for compliments. In addition, people are ugly because they themselves feel ugly. Try feeling beautiful and confident; it makes a difference.

4. Don't trust anything.

mau3genius
18-02-09, 04:40
I'm thinking of...

1. When someone quotes a gigantic post to say "Hey I agree :tmb:". **** that, I don't see the need in stating you agree or disagree on something If you're not going to elaborate your POV.
2. People taking obliging compliments as truth (when sometimes, they're not). For example: "Oh, that tentacle in your face is nothing to worry about, and you're not that fat either" "I know. The tentacle suits me, and the weight is pure muscle". WTF?
3. Drama queens. "Oh I'm so sad, everything's falling apart" Get over it. Don't dwell it on my face to see If I go all sad with you.
4. Sensitive people. When you try to give a constructive opinion and you get a "Jeez this is my first try :rolleyes:". So why you asked for opinions then?
5. Bad Grammar. Although I is sometimez guilty for these so me can forget about dat lulzz!!111!!
6. Complainers! (Hehe, it's too late to add it to the list right? :p)
7. The :wve: smiley. It looks so freaking *****y when used next to certain comments. For example: "Yes, that's nothing new :wve:" "No need to be aggressive :wve:" etc
8. Moderator wannabes.

When people ask what my favourite movie or song is. Seriously, there are too many good movies and songs to choose from. You can't possibly choose a "favourite". Why don't people get that?

Another one that bugs me is when people confuse me with Greek and Australian, and they ask "Why did you leave Greece?" or "Why did you move from Greece to Australia?", asking it as if it's fact.

Well for starters, I never lived in Greece to begin with. :rolleyes: I only went over there for 7 months. Just because I have Greek heritage, have the Greek flag in my avatar, speak fluent Greek and have been to Greece several times, doesn't mean I'm Greek and was born and raised in Greece. I like to say that my heritage is Greek, and yes I am proud, but my nationality is Australian. :)

18-02-09, 04:54
I know this is kind of ironic BUT:

People who whine or complain too much

People who don't know when to use who and when to use whom.

When is it that it is correct to use 'whom' in stead of 'who'?

I dislike:

The soccer rage that everyone seems te get affected by once every two years or so, here in the Netherlands.

People having no argumentation at all to include with their statements, even when you ask for it particulary...

Bad grammar. (Although my English grammar is... bad:p I know that.)

Incorrect generalisation: (Example)

If people on the news talk about terrorism there are often images shown of people with sjawls (Or scarfs or sheets... I don't think that I know the right word:() around their head.
Well okay, that must be what people want to let us believe that the typical terrorist (If typical terrorists even exist:p) looks like.
The problem here is that when I walk around on the streets or inside my school with a sjawl (Or scarfs or sheets... ) around my head people, people always call me a terrorist. (So if I have to believe what they say, the definition of a terrorist is: Someone who wears a sjawl around his head...

(Example 2) People who laugh at you because you have long hair... and then call say that you are a girl because of that.
(Happens to me all the time...)

I can't help but chuckle slightly (not just at this post, but others too) because lying is something we all do. I think what you meant to say is that you don't like being lied to. Naturally, we can hand it out no problem but can't take any. We also - naturally - label/judge others due to our brain's need to categorise, so appearance and first impressions is all we have to go on whether we like it or not. I'm not saying this means it's an invalid pet peeve - it's valid, we do these things naturally and we clearly don't like them.

Forum pet peeves:

Forums topics that are totally misleading and which lead to much drama and angst when just a little accuracy and clarity in the title and initial post could easily prevent it.

Typing out long well thought out posts which are promptly completely ignored whilst two or more people carry on with a session of bickering and name-calling which effectively buries my post so no-one else will ever see it!

When good topics degenerate into the aforementioned bickering and name-calling...

I'm not saying this means it's an invalid pet peeve - it's valid, we do these things naturally and we clearly don't like them.


I guess I better way to say it woiuld be that I don't like being deliberately deceived. Bending the truth a bit is a different kind of thing because we all need to do that from time to time otherwise we'd end up like Jim Carrey from Liar Liar (well, maybe not quite so bad as that but you know what I mean). As for the first impressions, making an assumption based on them is a natural thing but there should also be an effort to test those assumptions as well like asking that person questions, getting to know them a bit.

Mixing up "then" and "than"

Wrong: "I picked up the dry cleaning, than went home."
Right: "I picked up the dry cleaning, then went home."

It's amazing how many people mix those two up. They're two different words!! I might make mistakes but I've been told a million times that I write better than many people that use english as their main language :rolleyes: And I've noticed it also. It scares me. I only use english online and I'm doing ok.

Anyhow...
-chewing with your mouth open. Y-U-C-K! It sounds horrible. Why would anybody do that? Is it fun? I doubt it.
-when people talk about something that they don't actually know anything about. This is probably the worst one for me. It annoys me so much. 'I have an opinion that I've just learned from my old dad and I have nothing to show that my opinion is better than everybody elses but I still like to think it is', ARGH!!
-people who have no idea about good manners. Most basic ones. If I have a magazine and I'm reading it, I don't want you to rip it from my hands and pretend that it was yours in the first place. Just an example...

People who click their nails. :hea:

And when a grouple of people block the WHOLE corridoor. Same with people on the streets. If that happens I'll "accidentally" bump them and say "**** sake" to myself past them.

No, it's not rude, they should know better than to stand in the middle of the street.

Your English is incredible!:tmb: You only use it online? Honestly, if I didn't know that you were from Finland and English was not your native language, then I would hae guessed you were British!:)

My pet hates:


Stubborn People - When they refuse to admit they are wrong.
People that show no respect for others and their posessions.
People that 'act cool' to fit in.
When things that are hurtful are disguised as a 'joke' - when it is nothing more than bullying.
Stereotypically assuming pepople.
People that adapt the 'Silent Treatment' for aguements. It is nothing more than stupid and immature.


The list is endless but I think I will stop there for now!:)

I'm happy to say I don't know of any person like that on these forums.:)

-People with speech impedements [I know it's stupid & pathetic but it drives me mad!]

Well, I have no reason to use it anywhere else :D All my irl friends are finnish too. But I studied english for 9 years :D And I've used internet for many years and most sites are in english, and of course all the games I play, tv shows/movies I watch etc... And on top of that, english has always been somehow natural for me, I don't know how to explain it any better. It was always easy for me to learn. Even though I don't even know any grammar stuff. My ears just tell me how to type/speak. And thanks :wve:

1. People who stare at you when walking
2. People who point at you
3. People who make jokes about your looks just cause you're tall and look younger than you are
4. People who laugh after staring at you and passing you on the street
5. People who freaking lable you just by one look

I agree with you on all those points.

Ignorant people
Liars
Cheaters
Bullies
Overly superficial people

I absolutely agree. It's a shame when people don't because some people get completely misrepresented. I'm quite an open-minded person so I do tend to remind myself that I shouldn't be jugding a person completely on their looks or what I know of them and although we do, there have been many occasions when I've made an assumption about a person (negative) and then after talking to them I'm chewing my arm because said person turns out to be very pleasant. Of course there's some that work the other way and with some you can be spot on. But most of the time I end up thinking "that person's really nice and I thought they'd be horrible" etc.

A bit random but people who skip words when they're talking, ex:

Wrong: " After a long day school"
Right: "After a long day AT school"
It happens to me all the time!:mad:

Both the quote and the reply drive me insane

People who over use the word LOL or say LULZ:mad:

I know what you mean, I've been guilty of the same thing myself. Even making an assumption someone must be a really nice person can go out of the window once they speak to you. Best to just try an be sociable and if someone doesn't want to get to know you then that's their problem. It makes a pet peeve of mine much less of a problem. You seem come across as an open minded as well. :tmb:

People who yawn without covering their mouths. It's gross.

People who stare at you until you look up. It's creepy.

People who try to advize you what or what not to buy at grocery stores. I don't believe I asked for their opinion.

People who say "I couldn't live without..." when it's something as stupid as a cell phone or chocolate. It's ridiculous.

People who think Mexicans speak Mexican. It's retarded.

People who say "that's gay." I don't have a problem with the way they use it, like I'm not all up and arms about the whole gay or not issue, it's just that it's not gay. It's aweful maybe, but not gay. How is it gay? You know what I'm saying?

People who quote movie lines as they're being said in the movie. It's unecessary. I'm not impressed that you know this movie word for word. So stop it.

People who ask you, "what's my name," when you've been nice to them and had no problem with them as long as you can remember. Why the hell would they do that? It's rude. Would you rather me not be nice since I don't know your name? Geez.

People who say "irregardless." Regardless all ready means "without regard." How is anything "irregardless"?

People who don't go to dances because they don't have a date. That's seriously the only reason you won't go? How sad.

And that's just off the top of my head of my pet peeves.

From the top of my head right now...

Wrong grammar, particularly a number of increasingly common grammatical mistakes in the Dutch language, e.g. "them" instead of "they" and "as" for "than".

People littering.

People disturbing the public order.

Rude/unreasonable people.

I don't like it when someone talks to you about one of their own friends as if you know of them, and have been told about them before when in actual fact it's the first time that person has ever been mentioned.

"Oh, me and Claire were at this..."

When I've never heard of this Claire and you've never mentioned her before, yet you talk as if I do know of her.

Does that make sense?

Annoying, isn't it? I just nod and roll my eyes, not even bothering to say "oh, who is...". Not interested.

In keeping with being contributory to the thread, another peeve of mine is smokers complaining about people coughing around them when they smoke. They seem to assume it's all fake. No, I'm actually coughing because it smells rank and irritates me throat and lungs, you complete doorknob.

As mentioned...earlier...using ellipses...to sound...smarter...is...annoying...You don't sound...smart...you sound like...a tool

I mean honestly, would you really take that many breaks in-between words? Are you trying to separate the following phrase from your last? Are you trailing off into silence? No? Then don't bloody use it!

Also:

"If u don't like it don't listen to/watch it!!!Stop wasting your time hater!!" comments.

I don't listen to/watch it. I listened to/watched it once and now I'm saying how much it sucks. Would you be saying the same thing if I was being positive about it?
