    People who answer their cell phone, but instead of at least making the effort to be discreet, do everything short of broadcasting their half of the conversation through a megaphone to make sure everyone knows that they've received a call from someone.

    People who pass in the driving lane.

    Cheating, in any sense really.

    Spelling and grammar.

    I think that is the big four.

    My number one peeve of the year: people who have difficulty simply answering a question in the spirit in which it is asked.

    Q - "Is it hot outside?"

    A - "How do you define 'hot?' What's hot to me might be cold to you, blah, blah, blah..."

    Sometimes it's more helpful to just go with the flow.

    Q - "Senator Clinton, how would you bring about an end to the conflict in Iraq?"

    A - "Well, I wouldn't have gotten us involved in the first place..."

    Cute answer, but to a DIFFERENT question.


    And number two: wise asses who can't resist the urge, in social situations (not professional) to correct others on minor technical points or semantics when it's obvious everyone knows what they really meant.

    *eyes rolling so far back in my head I can see yesterday*

    - People being late. I don't just mean having like a friend coming over and they are a few minutes late. I mean like important things. Work, doctor appointments, any type of sport practice, etc.

    -No manners. Whatever happened to "please" and "thank you" and "excuse me."

    -When employees of a business are rude (lol)

    -People treat me like a child =(

    -Racism

    * People that correct you on a minor spelling thing in a text or feel that they are Alex Trebek and can pronounce every word.

    * People that text in a dark ass movie theater.

    * Parents that let their children run wild. If I am paying a hundred and something dollars for a nice meal, the last thing I want is to see your child running buckwild.

    * Kids that talk to their parents any kind of way with zero respect for their parents. And worse, the parents allow them to talk to them like that.

    * People that recline their seat all the way back on the airplane so they can sleep. Hello? Cockhead? There is somebody behind you.

    My biggest pet peeve has got to be people that eat really loudly with their mouth's open. It irritates the shit out of me! I was ready to kill a co-worker/friend of mine today for eating a caramel really loudly.

    I don't have a lot of pet peeves. I have a really high tolerance for the human condition - lol

    BUT

    (this may sound weird)

    I HATE when a waitress/waiter says "Do you need change?" when you leave money with the bill. I was a waiter for a long time and I think you should always say:
    "I'll be right back with your change" and let the customer leave you a tip after you come back with their change. Maybe it was the old lady that taught me how to be a waiter that instiled this in me - I don't know. But, the one thing you always wanna be when you're a waiter is POLITE.

    Am I being stupid?
    For some reason this really bugs the shit outta me! (I know there are bigger problems in the world - LOL)

    Bad gym manners piss me off the most.

    1. Groaning while lifting weights is NOT cool, you're lifting not giving birth or passing rock hard stools.

    2. Standing RIGHT in front of the mirror when you can clearly see I was using it to steady my weights...MOVE.

    3. Plopping down on a bench and just sitting there when there are others in line waiting....icon_evil.gif

    Thats about it, if you think of more gym pet peeves please include.

    My pet peeves,

    - Abercrombie and Fitch, esp. when you see tourist from the middle of america wearing it, because you know when they bought it, they thought, oh this is couture. The only people who should wear A&F are college freshman, they know nothing better yet. The abbreviation in A&F in screen names, also (i.e. caliAFgymbro) UGHGHGHG!

    -People who match speed and drive side to side on the Highway. Not cool!

    - Indie/Hipster via H&M... you conform through non-conform-ism and your cheap clothes! (Don't get me wrong H&M is a great thing, for a couple items per season)

    - People who order for the whole family in a drive through... I know this can't be helped, but, you know this is why the line at in-n-out gets so crazy.

    - Walky Talky phones, Nextell, whatever, beep "where you at", only construction crews should be using these, not for those who yell inaudible bastardized english slang into an equally annoying phone, to yet an even more annoying person on the other end.

    When you I M someone that doesn't except, and it it's annoying cause it's like they don't even know you, you'd think they'd give you a chance....

    When people talk about your man thing, and they talk so vulgar.

    Being ignored

    Judgemental people

    doing things for stupid reasons

    I'm pretty laid back though, you wouldn't be able to tell if I was unhappy, but yeah, stuff like that is irritating.

    When people talk down to you. My boyfriend did that last night and it took everything in me not to slap the shit out of him for it. Good god I hate it when people do that, especially when they talk to you like a parent does to a child.

    Snotty-ass, judgmental gay people who think they're in a position to judge everyone else (but let's see their browser history!).

    Gay guys who are perfectionists and expect every other gay person to be at the same exact level as they are, but are intimidated by anyone who is 'higher' then them.

    Gay guys who, sexually, say they're tops or they're masculine or they're 'regular guys' and after 5 minutes meeting them in public you realize that is not at all the case!

    People who go to pride because they want to 'celebrate community' but can't even look you in the eye (just look over your shoulder for someone they haven't slept with or bullshitted yet).

    People at the fitness center who stand next to you and sigh when you are on a machine (you're working out) and then plop down and do nothing for 10 minutes.

    Group homes who park their retarded clients at the fitness center (who can't say no because it's a nonprofit) who again do nothing but sit on the equipment and drool, while their 'worker' spends the whole time talking on the phone in the locker room.

    Straight guys who figure you're straight too and try to play the 'stare down' game with you, or they park their girlfriend on the cardio machine next to you but watch you to make sure you don't talk to her (gag).

    The Jesus People who show up at the fitness center who do nothing but talk (loudly) about the bible, God, what's going to happen to certain people and how they've somehow been chosen to be the messenger.

    Fitness Centers that don't cap off their memberships so during this time of year it's like fighting rush hour traffic just to get on a machine.

    Places that, within the last three months are becoming greedy and doing stupid things like charging you 16 cents for a cup of ice water or not refilling your diet coke like they used to.

    Gay guys who seem to know more about womens clothing, dresses, dolls and shoes than anything men wear (and then they say in their profile they are butch) - yea right - by who, your grandma?

    If you take public transit, people who smoke in the bus shelters where it clearly says NO SMOKING.

    Welfare mothers who aren't even 30 who already have ten kids and use their welfare money to get their nails, hair and makeup done while their kids wear stuff from the charity closets.

    I have more but hey I'm in a good mood and it's still early.

    People who smack their lips when they eat or chew gum. Yes it's delicious, now shut up about it. Chewing with your mouth closed is not that difficult.

    People who sit down next to me and light a cigarrette and make no effort to blow it away from me. Assholes. If you want cancer or emphysema, knock yourself out, but keep that away from me.

    Disclaimer for the next 3: I'm a dog person and have two dogs.

    People who let their dogs run off leash on the trail I run on. What exactly are you trying to proove? That your dog is exempt from leash laws because you think it's a human?

    People who take unsocialized, untrained dogs which they can't control out into public places such as parks, trails and such and you have to guess if his lunging means it's gonna attack you or if it just wants to hump your leg.

    The bastards in my neighborhood who let their little yappy dogs run free, and don't come call the stupid mutt when it charges out barking at me and my dogs. It gets my male dog all riled up although my female dog couldn't care less.

    People who scream and slam weights at the gym. If you can't lift without sounding like an elephant giving birth to a truck, then find a new hobby.

    Wow - so many good ones here - I sure can't add anything to these, except:

    * People who hog the center (fast) lane forcing everyone to try to pass them on the right. (Bastards - if they have all day to get where they're going, why not just get into the slow lane and gawk around all they want?)

    * People who show up EARLY for a party or dinner you're giving. God people, please don't ever do this! Next time it happens I'll come out of the shower and open the front door buck naked!

    * Wait staff in a restaurant who don't write down the order - then come back later with either a mistake, or the line, "Uh - hey you guys, who had the chicken?" (I was a waiter in college - you write it down so you don't HAVE to look like a fool, interrupting the people to ask who ordered what.)

    - People who do not use their turn signals to switch lanes.
    - People who do not say "thank you" after I hold a door for them.
    - People who drive 5 mph under the speed limit.
    - People who cut people off at the last minute at a red light.

    when I make a purchase in a store, and the cashier says "Did you find everything?. No, I was not looking for EVERYTHING. I was looking for the things in my shopping cart, and obviously I found them.

    - People that don't say 'please' or 'thanks'.

    - When you walk out a door and hold it open for the person behind you. you expect them to take it with their hand, but instead rush past you and totally don't acknowledge you.

    - Misc driving pet peeves. It could be its own thread.

    - Misc gym pet peeves. It could be its own thread.

    - Gigantic sized designer sunglasses. On both guys and girls.

    - Guys that have the NJ guido puckered lip pose in their profile pics.

    - People that have a cell phone attached to their heads and can't put it down for a minute while paying for stuff at the register.

    - Excessive use of the word "ghetto" by people that have never been in or seen an actual ghetto.

    - The phrase, "oh that's gay". Often used by teens as an adjective for something bad or lame.

    - People that touch my computer screen to point something out or bring something to my attention.
