    Finger Food

    Why can't everyone be like Europeans are? Everyone I know from Europe eats all of their food with a fork, even French fries. Don't pick food up with your fingers. The worst part when I see someone eating Cheetos and they lick their fingers afterwards...

    Just A Few..

    1. I hate when people get to into your business, you almost can't breath because of how close they are. 2. People who look through my stuff, as if I've given permission. 3. People who complain about getting a low score on something when they have a pretty high mark on their grade...

    Stopping In Traffic

    Why do people when stopping in traffic do not pull up behind the car in front of them? They leave anywhere from 1 car length to 3 or 4 car lengths distance between them. Less cars get through the light, less cars get to the turn lane and makes for bigger backups.

    I Guess I Tend To Be A Little Irritated Easily, But:

    When I'm speaking to someone, she constantly clicks her nails on the table to add to her story, and more then half the time, I stop listening, because she is driving me crazy.

    Yawning.

    I hate when people just open up their mouths, as wide as humanly possibly, in public, just so they can inhale deeply. It's fine to yawn. Just don't open your mouth wide enough so it becomes the majority of your face. It's unattractive and unnecessary. It's a really weird...
