    I feel like some people are on here

    for the wrong reasons. Like for example a guy had messaged me asking if i could be his girlfriend... Dude. This is NOT a dating website.

    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...

    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...

    My list of pet peeves: Putting plates half

    laden with food into the sink. I hate touching food particles when I'm washing up. Disgusting. Calling me by my full first name. When couples get a bit touchy feely in front of me. Get a room. "Yolo", "Bae" and "Swag". Enough said. Bad breath. I admit, mine is horrible too...

    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. "...

    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...

    "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...

    Just please! I don't care how sweet your dog is

    PLEASE don't allow your baby to put their face in their face. It's the perfect way for them to get bitten. Plus most dogs will tolerate that so if they think its okay to do it to your dog they might try and do it to another dog and they will get bitten. To most dogs it is...

    I would have to say the biggest pet peeve i

    have is bad drivers/traffic. So often people are too busy on their phones, doing make up, eating, etc. Also, if you're in the left lane, DONT go under or even the speed limit, its meant for passing!

    And pets are one of them.

    Pet lovers are another. Animal rights activists are another. Humanity has enough problems. People turn to pets because they can't learn to get along and have loving relationships with other people. Most animal lovers are like "I like them more than people" SMH

    When someone doesn't tell me they like me at

    the time they do like me. (I find out later in life when the feelings are gone) It bugs me so much. Who knows, we could've had a future.

    I hate when people take any of my belongings

    without letting me know. Because then I get pissed off and irritated when I go crazy looking for it. Im not a greedy person, just ask to borrow whatever you need and I will practically say yes every time.

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