I Have A Pet Peeve

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 449 People

    My biggest pet peeve is definitely needless

    complaining. Complaining about your weight when people around the world starve. Complaining that your cellphone sucks when most people around the world don't have a cellphone. Just stuff like that. I'm a pretty angry guy myself and I let a tonne of stuff get to me. But...

    Because life's a big joke.

    .. you wake up one morning, realizing you've just wasted your life just because you tried to comform to social norms, and in doing so you've slowly gone down a spiral staircase of depression, until one day you think you've found the answer and that doing this stuff doesn't matter...

    I just absolutely cannot stand people

    who bring a pet into their home, and then for whatever reason, usually senseless, advertise they are looking for someone else to home them! It is really very very simple! If you aren't allowed pets where you live, then DON'T GET ONE! If you don't have the time to spend with...

    I absolutely hate when people don't specify

    North Korea or South Korea. As my friends and family know I have a deep interest for (South) Korea but they always bring up tragic events from North Korea up saying that "Korea keeps people captive" and "Korea wants to start war". They think I'm some supporter of North Korea's...

    If your 18+ and you're spelling like "r u ok?

    " Or "hi, do you wnt 2 chat wit me" don't think I'm gonna reply. LEARN TO TYPE LIKE YOUR AGE "are you alright?" "Hello. Would you like to chat?" There are proper ways to type and just dumb ways to type. Just ******* type normal. Don't say plz, thx/Ty, ect. It's please, thanks...

    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??

    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's a very petty one,

    but it's so annoying. I hate when people confuse "empathy" and "sympathy" You have empathy for someone when you can personally relate to them. You have sympathy for someone when you can't relate to what they're going through, but feel bad or upset for them. Your dog died? I...

    Gossiping. Oh my goodness,

    I cannot STAND it! There's one gal I work with who's really bad about saying negative things about others. I like her as a person, but then she starts to gossip and it makes me wonder what she says about me when I'm not around. :S

    Idiots who complain about being fat.

    It's always a stick figure complaining, never an actual fat person. A hundred and twenty pounds is not ******* fat! Get over yourself!

    or offended if you correct them. Excuse me for correcting your spelling or pronunciation, so you don't come off as a dumbass. Or if you correct someone when they're wrong about something. Wouldn't you rather have the correct facts?
