    Biggest Pet Peeves

    Im at home and I am bored, so I figured I would start a thread about this, and help pass the time.

    What is everybody's biggest pet peeves.

    Mine,

    Chomping your gum
    Dragging your feet when you walk
    When people say 'warsh' or 'idear'

    - When people chew with their mouths open
    - Being too cold somewhere that I can't do anything about it
    - Warm soda

    Re: Biggest Pet Peeves

    Most of mine have to do with driving.

    -people who cruise in the left lane and don't get over
    -people who don't understand right of way
    -people who don't nudge ahead when turning left and sit through an entire cycle of the light
    -people who don't read signs that are right in front of them like "no right turn on red" (and then honk at me for obeying the sign) or "left turn permitted on red after stop" and they sit there and you honk and they throw up their arms like what?

    When people drag their feet, eat with their mouth open and strongly pronounce the "g" at the end of -ing words.

    that one really pisses me off. I have one on my way to work every day and it's a block from the elementary/middle schools so you often get kids going across - coming from behind you, often on bikes so they're moving quickly and you don't always see them right away. Like hell I'm going to go through. You can wait the whole 18 seconds.

    People who wait really long at 4-way stops when no one else is coming from any other direction. Just GO already!

    I think it's fairly well known around here that if you leave a few seconds where my microwave clock is supposed to be, you're basically dead to me.

    Re: Biggest Pet Peeves

    lots of things annoy me. People who don't read their emails/spell my name wrong in them would be toward the top of the list currently. That and stupid people. You can't afford to go to some stupid KONY conference because you live in your in-laws basement? Don't hound me for donations. You have two unfixed dogs sleeping and ******* in the bed with your infant? You're a moron.

    That reminds me...

    I've had a lot of stuff going on with my dad's estate and I try to do as much of it as possible by email because often times I'm at work and it's just the easiest and most convenient way. I have been shocked at how many businesses simply blow off their email. Just this week alone I've had emails completely ignored by no fewer than five businesses I've been dealing with and they all said the same thing,"Well, you should've called."

    How about YOU don't offer email as a way to contact you if you're not going to use it, pal.
