I Have Pet Peeves

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,776 People

    It drives me crazy when I order coffee at a

    restaurant, put in the right amount of sweetener and creamer just to my liking and then the waiter/waitress comes and ruins this perfect combination by adding more coffee to my cup. Deep down inside as I stare at the blackened coffee being added to my perfect combination of...

    *joins I have pet peeves group,

    makes a post asking "anyone else have pet peeves?"* That. Right there. Is the dumbest thing people do on this site. They're IN THAT GROUP of course they agree with your post. I just saw one in a TV show experience "I Love ______(not listing name)" and she said "anyone else...

    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 believe in efficiency.

    "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...

    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...

    I'm sure everyone does!

    One of my biggest ones, which is kinda strange, I must admit -- I HAAAAATE when people come to quiet areas, where people are trying to concentrate, to talk on the phone or with their friends. There's a study room in the Commons building at my college, and I always go there...

    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...

    When there are so many open seats

    and empty spaces on the bus but a bunch of imbeciles decide to stand directly infront of the back door. The best part is, you say excuse me for them to move and they don't. If I bump into you or something (happens all the time), I'm not saying sorry.

    And another thing. I hate

    when people giving out a web address say "forward slash." There is and has never been any such thing! It is a slash as opposed to a backslash. No further qualification is needed.

    I Strongly Dislike Guys Telling Me I'm Legal

    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.

    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...

    One of my biggest pet peeves is the way people

    walk. I hate when people walk to slow. I hate when people just stop in the middle of the hallways. I hate when I'm in school and making a turn in the hallway & someone just comes walking fast like slow down. People should walk like there driving a car.

    Is it a peeve or is it a neuroticism?

    I really dislike being near anyone eating a yogurt. I hate licking noises, I hate the sound of the spoon sliding against the tub. I hate how people will put a spoon of yogurt in their mouth and still leave some on it when they remove it. I don't even like it when I eat yogurt...

    because I do to sometimes. But it's the people who just keep talking and talking non-stop really fast that annoy me. Especially if they're screaming in my face. It's like they don't know when or how to stop. Chances are I was probably too overwhelmed to even understand anything...
