My biggest is when adults sniff it up instead of blowing out their nose.  It is the most ickey sound in the universe to me.  My Fiance does this, even though we have tissues all over the house, and I always am carrying them (which he knows)  I don’t think he noticies. it.

@bleusteel:  Agreed! “Please advise” just rubs me the wrong way

Exhaust fumes from idleing vehicles.  It makes me so mad when I inhale a huge breath of cold fumes in the morning or walking to and from my work into the parking lot.  It really pisses me off!

Pet peeve round up!

Ridiculous grammatical and spelling errors irritate me beyond reason. When I see people, for whom English is definitely their first language, mix up their/they’re/there, or write “should of” instead of “should have/should’ve” it makes me crazy. Yes, I know people don’t proofread much online, and I should get over myself, but it makes me nuts.

I get really annoyed when people don’t finish their sentences. “So I was thinking maybe next weekend ….” and then maybe the phone rings, or someone knocks on the door or something, and then the conversation doesn’t get finished. I’ll say something like, “What were you saying about next weekend?” “Oh, I don’t remember. I’m sure it will come back to me.” Gah! I don’t know why this makes me so crazy, but it does.

My other pet peeve is when people try to finish my sentences for me. We all know someone like this, right? When I’m saying something, and then they jump in to say the last few words with me, I want to just yell at them to STOP right now! I think it’s a weird habit to develop, and I also think it’s rude.

I hate anything that has to do with eating. I hate the sound of forks and knives scraping the plate, I hate when people talk with food in their mouth, I hate when people chomp on their food, I hate when people lick food off their fingers, I hate when people eat/suck on ice, etc.

 

I also hate when people sit right next to me/in front of me in an empty movie theatre. Oh and listening to people eat their popcorn in a movie makes me want to cry. I hate it that much. It’s disgusting.

I hate FYI emails. I know it is for my information. If it wasnt you probably should not have sent it to me.

When people reply to text or email with “K”. I highly doubt you are SO busy you could not have added an O.  Stop being lazy.

oh wait….and I hate HANGERS!

Clothes that don’t easily pull off of a hanger, when the loop on either side of the shoulder gets stuck on the hanger, when you go to put a hanger on the rod and it gets caught on either side of the other clothes…when you pull off the hanger and it brings other clothes down with it..

the annoyance is endless!

@brooklyn_bee:  Oh, I’m sorry!  I didn’t intend for it to come out so ignorant.  There are quite a few people that I work with that just clears their throat at their desk – a lot.

Small children watching TV or playing video games. It trains them to NOT focus on anything for more than 30 seconds. If I had my way, small children would not watch TV or play video games at all. And we wonder why children can’t focus and then put them on drugs. I actually rage against this and people just look at me funny.

@mnp:  lol i’m sorry if it came off as attacking you because that was SO not my intent. i hear people clear their throat often and i want to say “go to a doctor! you have something wrong with you!” but being someone that 100% KNOWS i’m annoying and am so frustrated that i can’t feel better after years of trying to find a solution i feel so guilty! i was at the movies on saturday and i got an attack and i seriously was sick as a dog by the end of it trying to stifle my cough the whole time.

@Ms.Dachshund:  haha phewf, i’m not a total weirdo.

 

@littlemisst08:  omg a woman at my work CONSTANTLY talks about her bathroom antics. me: how was your weekend? her: i was on the toilet all weekend. like. THANKS. THANK YOU. yesterday, my boss came back after being off for a few days with an eye infection… she says to OUR BOSS “did someone fart on your pillow?” like COME ON. this woman drives me nuts. she also finishes sentences and interrupts constantly. so i’d say she is a huge pet peeve of mine. haha.
