    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. "...

    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...
