    Dirt. It's fine outside

    but stay out there. Get off my floors, my counters, my furniture. Stay off my clothes, my hands, my door handles. Just generally stay OUTSIDE!!!!!

    It bothers me when people ignore my texts

    and phone calls. It makes me feel invalidated.

    What really bothers me is

    when people are on the internet or texting and do not spell out the word "what." The word is only 4 letters and does not need to be shortened to 3. If you respond to me asking "wat" we will no longer be speaking. I can't.

    It Bothers Me

    I normally don't say anything, but sometimes seeing young adults advertising themselves irks me. Q&A is almost like skimming through want-ads sometimes. I don't know if it's because I think they don't understand the implications of their questions, or if it's because I think...

    When people write " RIP in Peace".

    .. "R.I.P." is a acronym for "Rest in Peace". So when you write "RIP in Peace" you are actually saying "rest in peace in peace". It like there's an echo in the room. Just something that bugs me... If you do this don't take it to heart, just please correct it.

    My pet peeve is when someone calls me

    and doesn't tell me what they want from me and I have to drag myself all the way across the house to talk to them Ex: "(my name)" "What?" "Come here for a sec!" "Why?" "Just do it!" I hate this!!!

    I have a lot actually.

    My biggest pet peeve is probably

    when people do not even make the slightest attempt to spell words correctly. I understand when you want to shorten things using "U" or "R" instead of the actual words or saying "talkin" instead of "talking" but there are some people that just make you wonder how someone can be...

    One of them is that people on here want to chat,

    skype, phone and I won't mention the other things....All without even seeing their face! If you don't want to show me your face, even with a request, then don't bother to try and be my friend. This annoys me. I need to put a conversation to a face....is that asking too much??

    Ignorance

    I hate it when people type like dis. When people spell dat instead of that. There's so much more ignorant typing I see online, but I think I'll leave it at those two examples. I don't think it looks cool .. Honestly I think it makes people look like morons.
