    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...

    I Have A Few

    I hate it when people drag their feet.  I hate the noise.  It makes them seem like slobs.  I don't like when people brag about themselves all the time.  I do not like it when people take advantage of others.  I don't like seeing people...

    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...

    Stop Talking Already

    My biggest most annoying pet peeve is my dad. He will tell a story, over and over, usually changing it in some way. He will tell it over and over, even though I have heard it a million times. And then he will think I don't believe his stories. He thinks he had just the most...

    I have a very high tolerance

    for people. My biggest pet peeve is a man that is not a man. Period take it how you want... What happened to all the old school men that hold the door and would never hit a woman or call her out her name! Roles have changed and men now think they should be taken care of...

    Well, I just HATE how people judge Michigan.

    Why? Everyone thinks people here are stuck up, hot headed, ignorant, and so much more. I am from Michigan and there are some down to earth people here. Lots of them! All I can say is, I don't know where you came from before because we are some of the nicest people. Take it form...

    I'm a bit of a jumpy person,

    so a lot of times when someone taps my shoulder or says my name suddenly I'll flinch or look up really quickly. And then people always say "oh sorry, didn't mean to scare you." First of all, 1) No. 2) you did not "scare" me. You STARTLED me. There's a difference. 3) To...

    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.

    Rudeness

    Rude people get on my nerves so bad. I'm not telling you to kiss anyone's ***, what I'm saying is show a little respect. If they haven't done anything to you, why be a jerk. Is it so hard? They are using their valuable time to deal with you, the least you can do is act civilized...

    Listening To People Eat

    I can't stand hearing another person eat. The entire process drives me up the wall. Munch, crunch, chew, swish, saliva, swallow--OH MY GOD, I can't put up with it. I have to have something to drown it out or I have to leave the room.

    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??

    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...

    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.
