    I'm curious about what things get under your skin and make you want to choke a bitch. For me:

    -Flip-flops on a woman who's not on the beach (sorry, but it makes them look like a bag of potatoes...wanna annihilate poise and presentation, that's the way)

    -Sloppy grammar, enunciation, and articulation (or, a man who looks like a butch but sounds like a bitch)

    -People who could care less: they could be beautiful if they only made the effort, but they just Could Care Less

    -Lack of sense of humor...nothing is so serious that you can't take the piss out of it

    -TSA personnel at an airport: there's this air they have of suspicion and arrogance which I can't stand

    -"That Guy" at the gym who does a few reps, uses multiple benches, walks around, talks on the phone, etc., then gets an attitude with you if you use one of his precious benches for one minute

    I could go on, but that's just a few. What are yours???

    I cant stand when im running outside and people just continue to walk in my path. Its runners etiquette for the walker to move out the way.

    I cant stand when im driving and people touch my music. Especially if my ipod is attached. Let the damn music play. If its on my ipod you know the song is good....

    Never put your fingers in my plate of food. Ask for some. Most likely I will give you a bite. I jabbed my roommate with a fork when he tried it once. He whinned about blood and punctured skin blah blah blah. He has never reached in my plate again though.

    My main pet peeve has got to be is when some one "Shhhhh's" me. I absolutely hate that. Do anything else besides that.

    - People who don't know how to use a turn signal properly (it's not flippin' science: you use it to let the drive behind know that you're going to slow and turn).

    - People who swerve between three lanes because they're so focused on their phone conversation they forget they're in a car. Hang up and drive.

    - People who can't drive in general (read: the majority of Florida).

    - People who completely ignore you for a phone. For example, when you're on a date and the other person is constantly texting. Absolutely no manners.

    - Arrogance.

    that's funny....i have those same ones...and had them all happen to me. Sometimes, I think technology in the hands of obnoxious selfish people makes things worse.

    People who drop their T's
    People who have their elbows on the table
    People who insist on talking about how "hung" they are in almost every post and then post a picture of themselves in lycra bike shorts with a semi in an entirely unrelated thread. (and you say you're hung?) No dignity. Some things make me die a little inside.

    One tries not to have any, as a person has the right to be an individual. Also working in a field that is over 85% women. One thought this was women business to have peeves, as men deal with things differently and just get over it, and women love to hold onto things.

    But if One had a peeve it would be! If a person does not like something, then don't do it. If you decide not to do something, then you have no right to force another too take on your decision/ life style choice.

    If you don't like jokes about 9/11, then don't tell any! But another still has the right to tell a joke.

    If you don't like bad grammar, then always talk like you have plums in your mouth, but don't cuss another, whom does not think it so relevant.

    People whom try to repress another with this vile thing called political correctness. Well if they want to give up their right to freedom of speech, let em. But this does not give em the right to abuse another, because they have not made the same political choice.

    lately people in general...

    Get off your cell phone.

    Learn to say things like "excuse me" and "thank you".

    Move your converstaion out of the door way, people are trying to pass through.

    Speak more softly, I'm twenty feet away and not a willing participant in your converstaion! Plus your friend is only two feet away??

    BTW, Cigarette Butts ARE LITTER TOO!

    The Ocean doesn't drink so pick up your empties up and throw them in the trash. There's no litter-crew coming on at 5 at the beach.

    Show some restraint, respect and responsibility!

    yeah, that bout sums it up... today icon_biggrin.gif

    Those who don't let people off of an elevator before getting on...

    People who don't say thank you (or even acknowledge your presence) when you open a door for them...

    Drivers who wait for the light to turn green before turning on their left turn blinker...

    When people walk around the house while brushing their teeth, or try to talk while brushing their teeth...I don't know why, but it just bugs the crap out of me.

    Also, when the local news breaks in while I'm watching TV for something like a freeway car chase -- drives me nuts!

    Lastly, cigar smoking in restaurants, even if it's outside --- so rude & tacky.

    Oh, AND people who have more than 3 pet peeves -- sooooo ANNOYING!!! icon_lol.gif

    When you're debating a topic or personal issue with some one else and they crash the conversation with the phrase "whatever." I swear to god, if I could hook up an air pump to their brain and fill it with maturity and articulation, I would...

    Beyond happy perky people are annoying as hell. Friendly, humorous and positive is great. Perky to the point where you know they are going to do back flips just irritates the hell out of me. I have this vision of someone just hitting them for no real reason other then to pop the perky right off their face. Just shock the hell out of them.

    I have many pet peeves related to smoking; however, I will only list two.

    I hate it when I'm at college, and people smoke in illegal areas such as the entrance to the building (there are designated smoking areas).

    I also hate it when people have to smoke while walking on campus, thus forcing the person behind them to walk through their smoke.

    Since I can't think of anymore, I will tell a funny "sorta" pet peeve.

    It always startles me when I'm sitting next to someone that I don't know is wearing a bluetooth device, and the moment they start talking, I'm slanting my eyes towards them and thinking: "Oh shit...CRAZY person!" I soon realize they are normal as the definition of it allows. icon_biggrin.gif

    oh well i have some odd ones:

    - The biggests is when someone is eating in front of someone who made their food, or when they are eating at a table and they don't take off their hat. i know it's an old tradition, out dated i know but it still bugs me, it's rude and disrespectful to the cook to have your hat on.

    - i hate when there is a garden hose in the road, pressure in it and it has a nozzle on it so the water isn't free flowing, and people run over the hose with their car. again a stupid one, but it ruins the hose over time.

    - when someone puts toilet paper on teh toilet to sit on and don't flush it down

    - when people leave woundeds

    - when people talk out of their ass

    and then the other usual ones
