    "Seeing Things You Didn't Ask For"

    My biggest pet peeve has been recently discovered. I have found that this one bothers me more than any I have ever had, or noticed. I love the internet, and Social Networking Sites, especially EP. I don't appreciate however, having people fan me that have nude pics for avatars...

    Ep Pet Peeves

    This is just a little rant. Nothing personal. Just need to get it out of my system is all. Maybe I am just a *****. Probably. But my tolerance level must be diminishing in my old age. I know I will end up being one of those old ladies siting on her porch yelling at the...

    There's one thing that I can't stand.

    .. When somebody leaves a shopping cart in a parking spot. It wouldn't kill somebody to take the time to take it to the cart holding thing - whatever it's called.

    when someone texts you,

    and you respond, and then they don't respond. Like, it's one thing to ignore me if i'm the one texting you first, but YOU were the one who sought ME out, and I actually took precious seconds out of my day to read and respond to your message. Least you could do is finish...

    Seriously? On An Airplane?

    Why do people think it is appropriate to get on an airplane and cut/file your fingernails? First of all, the clicking noise of clippers annoys the heck out of me, but then to watch bits of fingernails fly through the air and land on other peoples' heads is gross. Oh, and I just...

    Now I Will Give Them Their Shots

    People who do not cover their mouthes when yawning. Hats worn indoors.  (Baseball caps worn backwards - yikes!) Personal space invasion by cell phone.  All Eddie Murphy movies made after Beverley Hills Cop. SUVs and other gas-guzzlers with one passenger. "...

    Sometimes it gets a bit noisy with the kids

    and my attention is drawn. Sometimes my focus is just on something else. It drives me batty when I don't hear what someone tells me and after asking them to repeat it...I hear "nevermind" with a tinge of irritation to it. I have better things to do than launch into an apologetic...

    Why do people feel the need to slow down

    Children Screaming Needlessly

    I don't know about everyone else here but when I was a child I was taught that it was only OK to scream if I was in pain or in danger. Yet it seems today kids are allowed to squeal over everything. Went to pizza hut the other day and I do accept that children will be there...

    I hate watching a movie with someone

    who has already seen the movie because they always say during the movie.."watch this part, you'll like this"..."omg this part is funny"...so when we do pick out a movie to watch we make sure that nobody has seen it.

    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...
