I have a million but the one that comes to mind is people who let their children scream/throw a tantrum/ run amok in a restaurant. You and your snowflake are not the only people on the planet. Everyone here is trying to have a relaxing meal out and spending their money to do so. Take snowie to the car. I had to for a good solid year and that's why my kid is sitting in his seat and saying please and thank you. Because that crap doesn't fly with me... so why do I have to listen to the ear splitting screams of yours?
Makes me so mad.

Bike riders on the road. It makes me scared that I am going to him them, especially when they start riding in the middle of the road and people honk at me because I don't want to yell at them and/or over take them.

Can't see why they can't ride on the footpath. I don't want to freaking kill them. a person walking can move out of the way quickly and it's easier.

acrylic nails on the keyboard. and girls who dress like whores when they work an office job. I NEVER dressed like that when I worked in an office. Sends out the wrong message and that message is the one I instinctively think of.

Also and this one is for the Australians! HALLOWEEN IS NOT A HOLIDAY HERE! So therefore every year I forget that you know... teenagers are going to knock on my door dressed as really at the end of the day SLUTS and demand chocolate and sweets.

I really don't mind the little ones though, except when they look incredibly disappointed that I don't have chocolates and sweets at my home that I would be able to give them. (I'm not going to break off a bit of chocolate for you... it's al going to be packaged... OKAY! no risk of being blamed for poisoning then!)

One of my pet peeves is parents (well mothers) that call themselves "Mama Bears" and project that as a good thing because "Nobody is going to hurt my child."

Most often, it seems to me those same parents are helicopter parents "directing" their child's life, never holding that child (or teen or even adult) accountable for anything, and rescuing them from every possible situation they get in, no matter whether they were wronged, or were the ones who actually wronged someone else. I am not particularly impressed when somebody proclaims herself as a "Mama Bear." I think there comes a point when even real Mama bears let their offspring fend for themselves.

1. I freaking HATE being interrupted. Don't be a rude, disrespectful, inconsiderate asshole and let me finish my damn sentence.

2. A dirty kitchen. Crumbs on counters, dishes piled in the sink, cabinet doors left half open, paper/cardboard piled on top of the recycling bin instead of put in it...I think my H pisses me off on purpose.

3. Parking your cart in the middle of the aisle. Move it to the side!

These are cracking me up and raising my blood pressure all at the same time!

> When I am in the grocery store line and still waiting for my turn when all of a sudden the register next to me opens up and the 2 people BEHIND me decide their time is more valuable than mine and scoot over.

> When I go into the ladies room at work and the toilet seat cover is still sitting on the seat.

> Coffee grinds in the bathroom sink. Again....at work. We are supposedly professionals but I guess no one is exempt from nasty.

> And my recent pet peeve from last night! -- Opening the door expecting to find trick-or-treaters only to be cornered by a Windows and Siding solicitor. AYFKM??

This is great! I have so many... I'll try to control myself.

re: traffic. At the end of my nightly commute home, I have to get into the center turning lane for the upcoming light. I put my blinker on as soon as I'm through the previous light, but there's always some assh*le behind me who rushes to get into the turning lane then comes up beside me so I can't get in the lane, too. WHY?! Wait your damn turn.

grocery store: there's no one in the entire aisle, so I pull up to the section I need and start looking. Suddenly there are 5 other people pushing in front of me to get at the same frickin' products I'm looking at. Wait your turn!

Still at the grocery store: when it's my turn to start unloading my cart onto the moving conveyor belt and the turd behind me starts unloading his cart, too, so my space completely runs out before I'm finished. Wait your TURN!!

I think there's a theme in my life...

I work in a high school, so my pet peeves relate to teens....

Yoga pants. Don't. Just don't.

Ending a sentence with "so....yeah" because they don't know what to say.


So yeah.

Unless you're in a yoga class or your own home I think this applies to every single person... regardless of age and size.

Smokers who litter with cigarette butts.

.... Especially the mystery one who jettisons the cigarette butt that I find at the end of my driveway (or sometimes even on it) every single day.

I, too, hate it when checkout operators are too ill-mannered to say please and thank you, at least. How on earth can they NOT say it, when they're taking and giving money all day long?! Have they never heard of Pavlov?

The other thing I hate is seeing tiny children in strollers being pushed all around town with dirty faces; because they've been given something to eat to keep them quiet, but no one could be bothered to clean the poor little tots up afterwards.

When the checkout person gives me my change, and puts the receipt in my hand and then piles the coins on top of the receipt.
Ugh! Me too, because then I have to separate the change into the change purse and the receipt into the other pocket and it takes longer. Why can't they give me the change, and then give me the receipt as it comes out. They always have to wait for the receipt anyway. That way, I can be done and out of the way for the next person.

People that pull out in front of me and slow down, especially when there is no one behind me. Wait another 5 seconds until I pass and then pull out. Then I won't care how damn fast or slow you are going.

Bike riders scare me. In this day and age, unless there is a bike path, do you know how dangerous it is to be driving in traffic? Most people don't slow down for them. Many pass them within inches. I really don't want to see someone get killed.

One of my pet peeves is parents (well mothers) that call themselves "Mama Bears" and project that as a good thing because "Nobody is going to hurt my child."
YES! Because everyone's little "precious" is special and should win every single game (we had a Halloween costume contest at school for the families of our students. The moms actually got mad because all of their children didn't win first prize (a goody bag with candy). We had candy littered all over the tables for the kids to grab and help themselves. Everyone can't win all the time. What are they teaching for when they hit the real world?) I really think these parents are totally living thru their children and using them to make up for every single time they weren't picked first or lost a contest when they were little.

Ignorance. It abounds. And OMG!!!! I had some guy jumping on me for my politics because of the bumper sticker I have on my car, and then he told me no one was gonna take away his gun rights and he pulled out a gun as he was sitting in the driver's seat of his car and showed me (it's okay, because he has a license to carry ) and his 2 year old baby was sitting in the passenger seat right next to him! What keeps her from reaching over and grabbing it? OMG!!!

I have MANY pet peeves.

People who can't type the words and decide to use ur for you're, or 2 for to/too. That drives me BATTY and makes me think you are just ignorant or lazy. That includes texting. Don't text me if you can't be bothered to write it out.

Drivers who have to be assholes. The ones who stay in the wrong lane to get onto the freeway because they are MUCH to special to wait in the line and then nearly run me off of the on ramp because they have to be in front of me.

People who don't USE the on ramp to get up to the actual freeway minimum speed and I am stuck behind you. The minimum speed here is 60 mph. You are in front of me doing 35-40 and I am then trying to merge onto the freeway with traffic zooming past driving at a snails pace.

People who proclaim themselves "Christian" then pontificate about how others are going to hell, but then get pissy when their hypocritical words are pointed out.

People who feel like they MUST carry a gun. I don't want to be in a place that is being robbed and have you try to be a hero and end up causing a gun fight.

People who use unemployment as vacation money and then cry about how hard it is to find a job when they only have 2 or 3 weeks left of their unemployment.

People who let their kids run wild in public. Unless you are in a kids play area, keep them on a short leash. I raised my kids. They were all very well behaved in public because they knew I wouldn't put up with it.

Customer service people who don't know their jobs or who are rude.

Medical people (nurses, Dr's, aides) who are just lazy.

Dr's who assume they know more than you who have been living and caring for that patient for more than 20 years.

People who park across two or more spots.

People who park in the handicapped spot then sit in their car so their able-bodied passenger can run into the store.

Ugh...yeah I have more but I will stop. I don't just have issues, I have complete subscriptions.

My pet peeve is people that leave shopping carts in the parking lot. Some will leave them right in their space when there is a corral in the very next space! It drives me NUTS. I returned a cart last week and another shopper came up to me and said "thanks for doing that; hardly anyone does that anymore". Nice to be recognized, but also sad that so few do it, it has become something to be praised for???

To me, this just smacks of a sense of entitlement. Like "I'm sooooo busy and special, someone can retrieve my cart for me". Really irritates me to no end.

Edited to add: The screaming kids in restaurants or grocery stores drives me completely nuts too. I'll never forget the time I was in a grocery store and two kids were running and screaming up and down the aisles. Parent nowhere to be found. Finally, another patron stopped the kids and asked where their parents were. Kids just kinda shrugged and pointed in the distance. Patron went and got the manager to find the parents and retrieve their unruly kids.

OMG, that person was my hero!

People who think they're so special that they don't have to take a number and wait at the deli/meat/seafood/bakery counter. (saw it happen today)

People who are texting or talking and almost take off the front quarter panel of my car (again happened today)

People who can't share common space for even five seconds... (I'm saving these seats!!!!! ack ack) I told douchbag I'd only be there two seconds to rearrange a bag. FFS... Get a life! Stupid guy almost hyperventilated because I put my bag done for a second.

People who don't read the sign that says "No dogs" and bring their precious little 100lb "baby" into a crowded area full of people. Didn't want the poor "baby" to get wet in the rain. I thought most dogs were fairly rain proof.
