    Say It Out Loud Dammit!!

    I just recently discovered a new pet peeve of mine. It drives me crazy when I'm in the middle of an arguement and the person I'm argueing with mumbles something under their breath and refuses to tell you what they said. Don't say it unless you have the balls to say it loud enough...

    It really bothers me

    when people push phlegm up the back of their throat, and then swallow it loudly. The sound grosses me out. >_<

    I Strongly Dislike Guys Telling Me I'm Legal

      There’s an expression that I really dislike a lot. In fact, I hate it. The premise behind the expression is so insulting and demeaning to girls when expressed by a guy. Before you get too critical of my dislike for this expression, please understand that I already...

    Experiences with grammar

    and spelling issues. Also the ones with capitalized articles, prepositions, etc. I have no choice but to use them because they're already established. Haha, oh well.

    Talking On The Cellphone On The Potty

    Cell Phone Screamers

    This has probably already been commmented on in this group, but it's one that really makes me nuts: People in public who feel the need to SCREAM into their cell phones. I mean, come on, people; it's a sophisticated, sensitive piece of modern electronics, not a can tied...

    I recently had the pleasure (not

    so much) of being stared at by a bratty 9-year-old girl. It made me super uncomfortable. It's like... stop staring at me! I think I would feel uncomfortable with anyone just staring at me. Even my husband. I don't mind it sometimes, but other times, even him staring at me can...

    Now I Will Give Them Their Shots

    Bad drivers is by far my biggest pet peeve!

    Also, inconsiderate people, loud chewers, and arrogance. Each to their own degree but bad drivers is #1 because it is dangerous and frustrating to deal with all the time.

    My pet peeve is when people say to others,

    "eww, you're ugly". It bothers me a lot. If someone says you're ugly, that is not true because your personality tells if you are beautiful or not. Looks don't always matter, folks. It never can tell how a person truly is on the inside. And this may sound cliche, but its true, if...

    I'm an open minded person

    and I'm cool with people respectfully disagreeing with me and stating their own opinion, I will always legitimately consider their opinion. But I HATE it when people try to challenge me and act like they know everything and don't have a proper arguement.
