I Have Pet Peeves

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,461 People

    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.

    "Seeing Things You Didn't Ask For"

    1. Republicans lying I'm a Democratic girl!

    My party is far from perfect to be honest, but the GOP is not either! They're scum! 2. News Reporters interrupting someone while they're speaking There's nothing more irritating than hearing a news reporter cut someone off to ask them another question! Ugh! It drives me crazy...

    Clean the lint trap when you're done with the

    dryer. Change the roll when the toilet paper runs out. If you drop something on the floor, do pick it up; at least before you leave the room, if not right away. Don't hide behind walls and doors because I'm "yelling" at you or simply asking you to have a little consideration...

    Pet peeves: seriously bad grammar,

    slutty teenagers, and anthropomorphic animals in cartoons having pets! I mean, what the hell is up with that? How does an aardvark have a pet dog?

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Talking On The Cellphone On The Potty

    When nature calls me at work, I just want to sit down and poop in peace. The last thing I want to hear is a pooping cohort in the next stall talking on his cell phone. Dude, you're just not that important to be talking on the phone while taking a ****. When this happens to me...

    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...

    Why do people feel the need to slow down

    passing by a cop that already has someone pulled over? Has anyone ever seen a cop forget the person he's pulled over and run back to his car to chase after another speeder?

    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...
