    I, like everyone else, happens to have a few pet peeves. A few peeves in mind but there is the #1 biggest peeve within all of us.

    Me, one of my peeves are gay men who wear tight, not form fitting, pants like it's sexy. Not my thing & will not knock others who want to do harm to their reproductive system. But yet, other gay men find that sexy. Being trifling can mean many things but the main meaning of it is that it means little or of no important value. Trifling means how well you tend to carry yourself. I try to keep a good-looking image & myself together but alas, I get overlooked. Case in point, if you are carrying an STD & you refuse to get medical help for it and you pass it to others willingly, then that makes you...trifling. But enough of the typical things that are rampant within likely the gay community (Yes, I can come to terms with the postings that I have in my profile, I just would not put up with it.) Now back to the subject at hand, pet peeves. My biggest pet peeve is this:

    "I don't mean to be rude but are you gay?"
    "I don't mean to make fun of (Insert name here) but he's desperate for anyone to sleep with him."


    There are people that say any kind of thing but they waste their breath by going against what they don't mean to be or say. When you make a comeback & set some people like that straight, they would want to get mad and/or offended & tell you to "take it easy" & "chill out, I was just asking you a question."

    i.e.,

    Someone out of line on any given day can ask you this:

    "Hey, excuse me, I don't mean to be rude---"

    And your response is simply this:

    "Then I would highly recommend that you don't."

    If you don't mean to be rude or make fun of someone, then why turn around & do it anyways? It defeats a purpose & it serves no meaning.

    Is there anyone else who agrees with this kind of peeve?

    2. Folks who don't pickup their weights.
    3. Folks who stand in front of you while lifting.
    4. Ignorant folks.
    5. Folks who cut you off in traffic, and think it's o.k. if they smile and wave.
    6. Whiners.

    The only one that comes to mind right now is when your standing at a cross walk waiting the the light to turn and the little man in the dont walk sign to come up. There is someone standing right next to the button and they dont press it. Then the light turns green and the little man doesnt come up and they stand there not knowing why!
    People; the button works use it!!!
    I know what your saying; just walk anyways. But, in my city they give out J-Walking tickets like theyre going out of fasion. I have a court date on tuesday to fight my last one.

    I hate when people pee in the shower. That is so nasty. I don't care if it is my shower, the gym shower, or my friends shower. I hate when people pee in the shower!

    I also hate people who are religious and push it on other people or try to convert everyone. You would think that if they were confident in their own religion they would not try to make other like them.


    I also hate American "culture" or lack thereof. I am sorry, but strip malls filled with fat people does not do it for me.

    And those Fucking CD and DVD wrappersicon_exclaim.gif

    1. People who don't know how to operate the self check-out aisle at the grocery store quickly.

    2. People who grab a set of dumbbells off the rack and then do their set 6 inches from the rack so nobody can get to the dumbbells until they are finished.

    3. People who don't wear deodorant or have feminine hygiene odors at the gym.

    3. People that don't pick up after their dogs on the sidewalk. it's an epidemic here in Chicago.

    4. Stupid girls that talk really really loud on their phones in public about really stupid things.

    5. People who walk really slowly side-by-side blocking the sidewalk and then look at you like you're the asshole for saying "excuse me" as you try to squeeze past them.

    6. People who "pop" the collar. I lived through that the first time around over 20 years ago. You look like a damn idiot, please, please stop it.

    7. Guys and girls that wear pants so tight you can see their muffin top, moose knuckles or camel toe.

    Inconsiderate drivers...icon_evil.gif

    Let's say I'm at an intersection. If you're coming towards me and you're gonna turn right, PLEASE, put on your freaking turn signal. That way I don't have to wait. I can GO!!

    People who come to your town from another state to visit and won't listen when you give them driving directions. Example...

    Me: Baby, our exit is on the left.
    exBF: The exit is on the right and you turn left at the end of the ramp.
    Me: No, the exit is on the left. There's a train track on the right.
    exBF: They don't put exits on the freakin' left of an interstate...
    Me: Maybe not in LA, but in Chicago they do... See? You just passed it... back there... on the LEFT.icon_twisted.gif

    People that do any of the following while driving: Read the newspaper, apply makeup, talk on the cell without a hands-free device, look everywhere except in the direction they're traveling, wait until I'm right on top of them and then pull out in front of me... and then creep, back out of a parking space without looking behind them, fail to signal a turn... and a few more that escape me at the moment.

    #5 on RBY71's list (is that a Chicago thing?)

    People who have bad breath and/or BO...

    Stupid girls who talk really loud on their cell about stupid things in places where I'm forced to hear it.

    Stupid people that are too busy talking on the cell to get out of the way in the grocery store.

    I'll limit myself to one thing - ok - 2 things...

    1) people who form an opinion of me without ever even talking to me - based upon my appearance, or age, or demeanor. I was recently rebuffed online by someone whom I've never met because (he said) an unnamed someone told him I was rude and unkind. There's no defense against that kind of thing, and it frustrates me. How do you tell someone "wait! no! I'm not an insensitive bastard!"?

    2) the way they wrap CDs - the big plastic cases, then the CD with the shrinkwrap stuff, then the damnable little plastic strips on the sides that tear up the case when you try to peel them off - "Peel Here" - what a joke! Not only do you have to halfway tear the thing apart to get the CD out, you make a huge pile of waste for the recycle container.

    my housemate who has no consideration for others sleeping when she waltz's in at 4am and turns on her radio to go to sleep.

    Not only that, she's tiny but moves around the house like a horny elephant

    Discourtesy, when it would be very easy to be courteous ("Yeah, I held the door open for you, you cunt, thanks so much for saying THANKS! NOT!!" or when people don't call when they're late).

    like reedw's pet peeve, when people chew with their mouths open. It's so gross, like on the order of Bush's 2004 election victory gross.

    Pet peeve at Work (convenience store/gas station): Customer: I would like (ammount) dollars on that pump out there.
    Me: Which pump # please?
    Customer: I didn't look, it's that one right there.
    Me: ...

    We put numbers on those pumps to make things easier for both the customer and us damnit.

    Also..

    Customer: I want to fill up on the car out there. (with 7 cars already at the pumps)
    Me: icon_evil.gif


    Now in a person that is NOT a customer I think pet peeve would be a "holier then thou" and "Better then everyone" attitude.
