Pet Peeves
 
What are your pet peeves? What little irksome things do people do or situations arise that just grinds your gears?

People who don't use their turn signals, when changing lanes, or getting off the highway. (this is just one i'm sure there will be more)

People who can't be bothered (or don't know) proper english punctuation and can't be bothered to learn.

It's and its
there, their and they're
using apostrophes on plurals "I am going to have bagel's"

Using txt speak ("r u going 2nite?") in online forums and other places where there is no limit on number of characters in a message.

It's a clear, sunny day.

The parking lot is flat and level.

The car in front of me is an automatic.

And the person in front of me decides to BACK INTO A PARKING SPACE.


Ahhhhhhh! :eek:

Most political discussions end up raising my blood pressure :D Especially when I'm talking with someone with stereotypical left or right views.

Not sure what the "automatic" has to do with anything - and how you know but in any case - it might have been me up until about a month ago.
I had my neck broken in an accident and had severe range of motion after for awhile - resulting in me not being able to turn my head enough to see behind me. Using the mirrors would let me back in safely enough to selected spaces but the idea of someone being behind me (a child?) when backing out wasn't something I was willing to risk.
If someone was intent enough on riding my ass into the parking area so it caused them to back up some too......well...... :)

YES!!!!!

Parents who aren't monitoring their young children while out on their bikes. Young children out without their bike helmets while riding their bikes.

Partners who aren't considerate of my valuable time even though I'm considerate of their time.

Dog owners who don't scoop after the poop.

Not replacing the empty toilet paper roll.

Not rinsing out the shower or sink after shaving.

Not rolling down the top of the toothpaste tube so we use ALL the toothpaste.

Not rinsing out your dirty dishes since I'm the one who does 99.999% of the dish washing. (aimed at kids, lol)

Not putting dirty dishes in the kitchen in the first place.

Leaving garbage lying around instead of taking the two steps to the garbage can.
