What is your biggest PET PEEVE of all time?

Asked by judochop (16099points) April 15th, 2008

Does someone close to you squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the middle? Not put the toilet paper on the right direction? Shut off lights? Close doors??

Yes, my best friend always slams the doors on my 24 year old car, but I don’t feel like bringing it up because I have a feeling he’ll make it bigger than it is. It’s not worth getting in a fight over.

no, I don’t mind that actually, you get different answers each time!

I can’t stand people clapping in a movie theater.

When I know that someone is lying, they refuse to admit it and I just can’t prove it…most frustrating thing ever

Intelligent people that don’t exercise tact really bother me. I can accept when a dumb person says something not so approriate, or possibly offensive, I almost expect it, but someone intuitive and smart should know better.

I have trouble watching my wife do most things on a computer. Arrogant, I know, but it really bugs me when she takes extra steps to complete a task instead of using keyboard shortcuts.

I have two. People who think they are smart, but it just turns out they have no humor left. And people that double park.

Parents who let kids not use seatbelts and let them jump in the back seat going 90mph on the highway.

@Cyrus- god, my ex would do that. I HATED (see above) IT. I would look around, act sleepy, fiddle with something, she just didn’t get it.

@peedub; touché.

peedub's avatar

cyrus's avatar

people who chew with their mouth open.
people who write in all caps.
people who use “lol” instead of “ha”
people who complain about being fat while eating.

Bri_L's avatar

People who start their sentences with the word people.
JUST KIDDING lovelyy!

Bullies. A great deal of things that are unfair and unjust can be traced back to some sort of bullying.

scamp's avatar

Self centered people.

See Bri_L? I ended my sentence with people so I wouldn’t bug you. ha ha!!

Bri_L's avatar

@ scamp – very good! hehe

I enjoyed that!

scamp's avatar

Always happy to share a smile with you, my friend!!

judochop's avatar

People who are upset by the use of LOL. Really man, it has been around since the dawn of texting, Get over it already.

Bri_L's avatar

but that is the nature of pet peeves. they bother some of us and not others.

Your response would suggest that your pet peeve is those peeves you cannot understand or relate to.

Poser's avatar

Being interrupted, and when people jump to conclusions.

Ignorance. Hypocrisy. and in terms of internet lingo “kk” instead of “k” .

Allie's avatar

It bothers me when people call and don’t leave a message, but still expect me to call them back. Either call, leave a message and I’ll call back if you want me to or hang up and expect nothing from me.

jlm11f's avatar

i agree with you allie!

shockvalue's avatar

Personally I don’t like people leaving a message, I can see right there on the caller ID who called me, so I’ll get back to them when I can. Checking voice mail is a hassle. It usually takes a good minute to finally get to a message that just ends up being “Hey, it’s Joe Schmoe, call me.”

jlm11f's avatar

I usually return calls if i see a missed call. But I like to know what the call is regarding, so I can appropriately prioritize. ever return someone’s call to find out they are just bored and want to chat for the next 45 min of your life? that’s okay….as long as you are bored too :D

Allie's avatar

I guess it depends on who it is, too. If it’s one of my best friends then I’ll call back no matter what. Although, my good friends know I’m more of a texter anyways. But if it’s someone I rarely talk to then a message would be nice.

Bri_L's avatar

people who walk their dogs past my yard and let them crap on it and don’t pick it up. That way my kids do or I have to if I am lucky enough to stumble upon it before I run it over with a mower.

punkrockworld's avatar

scamp's avatar

@Bri_L I’d give it back to them.. on their front door step!!
