View Full Version : Pet Peeves

22-01-07, 22:56
What are your biggest ones? I have a lot. :whi:

- People talking obnoxiously loud on their cell phones.
- When people crack their knuckles.
- When you're eating at a restaurant and you're stuck in the smoking section, and you get a constant blast of smoke in the face while you're eating.
- On any type of instant messenger, when people put periods after EVERY single sentence/word they say (I do it sometimes for the sole purpose of good grammar cause I'm a nerd like that, but it annoys the hell out of me when others do it xD)
- When people say "Angelina stole Brad away from Jennifer".
- Staticy hair.
- When cereal gets soggy too fast.

You get the idea. :p

I've made a whole list about this a while back. It's a damn shame I deleted it.
Well here are some things that annoys me:

- Annoying buses which squeaks all the time.
- People who are playing extremely loud music on their head-phones.
(And don’t even turn it off when they speak)
-When the TV just won’t stop making sound after you've gone to bed.
-People who snores
-When the gum loses it's flavour after 2 minutes.
-People who always say ‘What’ after you've said something, and then you need to say it all over again.

My only one is when people talk behind other people's back.

22-01-07, 23:01
People spitting on you when they talk. I want the news - not the weather thankyou!

22-01-07, 23:17
i dislike:
*fake people (liars, two-faced, etc.)
*when people scrap their teeth against the fork when eating
*when you're im-ing someone and they honestly take the time to TyPe EvErY wOrD lIkE tHiS
*people who step off the curb right infront of the car you're in and then think you're an ass cause you slam on the brakes
*people who laugh and then say, "i don't get it"
*talkers/cell phones in the theater
*people who get behind you and try to power walk
*one of my aunts will call and ask what someone else is doing. after you tell her she repeats it back as a question. annoys the poo out of me. sometimes i just wanna scream, "No, Elaine, I just said that so I could shoot you down when you repeated it!" lol
*when people insist on touching me or playing with my hair when i don't know them
*standing in close proximity to someone else
*when people think they can sing
sometimes i get annoyed with people and society so easy, i guess minoring in sociology wasn't a good idea.

things other than people/their actions:
*those itty-bitty desks they stick you with in college. if i have to pay an arm, a leg and half of a kidney for my text book and then lug it to the other side of campus they could at least get me a desk the flipping book will fit on
*junk mail/spam

i also seriously hate it when people spit. not necessarily when they're talking, just spitting in general. i absolutely shudder and nearly gag if i can even heard someone spit a loogie. yuck

My biggest pet peeve is when ppl are cooking and they taste test the food with the spoon they are cooking with, and then put the spoon back in the food. That is just straight up nasty.

22-01-07, 23:50
I hate:

Neds (chavs)
Folk who take pleasure in winding me up
Stale muffins
Flat Pepsi
Raisins in my curry
My college lecturer :p
Folk who refuse to use proper English online
Anyone who spends more time picking out faults in others than sorting their own issues

-People who always say ‘What’ after you've said something, and then you need to say it all over again.

I'm guilty of that... but it's only because everyone here mumbles or doesn't talk properly, eg...
Them: Whi' yay dae'n fur y'r projeck?"
Me: Whaaa...?

My friend has this habit of saying “what” even though she heard what I said. And then I start to say it again, and when I’m finished she says “what” again… And she does this all the time.. Sometimes I repeat myself three times! She said to me that it’s become a think she just do, she doesn't even know that she’s doing it. She does this to everyone, even her school teacher. :p
Everyone is getting so mad every time she does this..

23-01-07, 00:12
People standing too close to me in public! Total strangers, even when there's plenty of room!

23-01-07, 06:37
I hate it when:

- People don't use ANY grammar or punctuation in their posts
- People stand behind me and breathe down my neck
- People spit
- People that talk louder than when my mum screams on the phone
- My parents tell me to get off TRF and do homework, even when I don't have any
- People are stubborn
- People that just absolutely will not shut up while watching a movie
- When the light is on while watching a movie
- People who say "What?" after I tell them something
- Homework
- And for God's sake, people who ring up your phone, someone you completely don't know, and they offer you free services :mad:

When a group of people are eating chips and dip and somebody says, "No double dipping!"

23-01-07, 08:04

1. That crunch that really fine sand makes when you step on it... it makes me feel kind of nauseous.
2. When someone chews in my ear. If they're chewing silently, it's ok. But if they're smacking their lips, making odd crunching noises, etc. it starts to get on my nerves.
3. When I accidentally misspell "nerves" as "nerds"! :p (I caught myself doing this in number 2!)
4. When I can't think of any more pet peeves, but want to keep going.
5. When I finish a list! :D

23-01-07, 08:26
People who dip their chip, then take a big, slobbery bite out of it, and stick it back into the dip for another mouthful. :p THAT'S GROSS. No double dipping at my party!

You should have called this the "Bah humbug" thread :rolleyes:

My pet hates; the things that really make me mad inside http://foolstown.com/sm/zav.gif:

*mobile phones
*people who talk incestantly on mobile phones
*spam (both the canned food and useless topics/emails/junk through the letterbox)
*when the cat widdles on the keyboard and I only find out after five minutes' worth of typing (fortunately this doesn't happen very often since I stuck that cork up his bum)
*other drivers doing stupid things like not indicating, not going fast enough/going too fast etc
*the smell (and taste) of HP sauce
*not typing/writing in good english (especially since there're things called DICTIONARIES and SPELLCHECKERS!! :hea:)

Bah humbug!
