When someone is telling a long story or anecdote and they say the word "like" literally three times in each sentence. My sister does this and it drives me absolutely insane. And she isn't a ditzy teenager -- she's 22 and in grad school after having gotten a full ride to a private university. She still sounds like a 14 yr old valley girl. Like, you know? Arrrghhhh!
My pet peeve is when someone votes no to a post because they don't like it. Sorry, but the questions was, "Does you think post adds to the discussion?" Not, do you hate people who have a different opinion than you.
My pet peeves: Grammar police and spelling police People being overly politically correct. There is a difference between being polite/considerate and lying/hiding about how you really feel. The toilet paper being put on the roll wrong. It should ALWAYS come toward me, not the wall. (Husband does this) When people squeeze the toothpaste tube in the middle. (Husband does this too) The people who bring politics into every conversation. People who will only side with one political party. The words libtard, and tea bagger. Pretty much anything involving politics. I also second the loud chewing.
-Not police, just being helpful. It just depends on how it's stated and how you receive it. - -People with cats often have to put the TP roll on backwards or the cat will unroll it for fun. - - -But the other side is always wrong! - -Yeah, me too! Loud chewing isn't politically correct. ;-]
People who think spelling and grammar don't indicate a certain level of intelligence or lack thereof Verbally abusive spouses in public Mothers yelling at their children Fathers not interested in their children Cats People with birds Political masochists Proselytizing vegans, religiosos, former smokers Prudes Misogynists Misandrists
Going through a door I always hold the door for those coming in after me. Lately I have noticed that a lot of people do not say thank you (or say anything) and they also do not take the door but saunter slowly into the building while I play doorman. I can understand a person with their arms full or a parent pushing a stroller not taking the door but common courtesy seems to be lacking at times.
YES! I taught my 10 year old son to hold the door for people and they hardly ever thank him. I always thank him for them. :)
People cutting lines is a big one for me. I mean you KNOW you weren't in front of that person...just let them go in the right order. Even if a new window opens, do you really have to run like a goofball to "beat" them instead of pointing them to the new window? Are those 2 minutes that much more important to you than the other person? I also let a person behind me with only a few things in front of me if I have a lot, I don't have to, but it seems courteous to me. (sometimes I get burned though and they have some tax exempt thing or complicated multi-coupon/rain check fiasco...but they let me let them go anyway...)
Mine is, I work in customer service and when that one person calls screaming at me that she also works in customer service and I am not giving her good customer service. The first thing I think is she is a liar if she work in customer service she would not be yelling at me like that because I do work in customer service and would not treat anybody like she is treating me.
My pet peeve is when someone tells me a story and starts laughing about what they are going to say and just keep laughing without even telling their story.Then they start the story and start la laughing fit again after just a few words.By the time they finish laughing I am so bored I do not want to hear the story at all.
People making left hand turns who plant themselves right in the middle of the lane instead of schooching over close to the dividing line so others can get past you, thereby totally stopping traffic until you can finally make your turn. The same goes for people who plant themselves in the middle of the right hand lane when stopped at a stoplight even though the lane widens out to permit right hand turns on red if the person stopped is over far enough to allow others to get by. Just a little concideration of others on the road goes a long way.
When you are on a 2-lane road with no passing allowed, and a guy turns into the road right in front of you then proceeds down the road for the next 10 miles at 5 MPH under the speed limit. (Especially when there was plenty of room behind you and he/she could have waited a few seconds to let you go by first.)
When traveling in a mountain area and people tailgate you and want you to go faster but you can't do so because of road conditions and there are no turn outs to let them pass...and speeding up could potentially be hazardous to your own safety
