People who were born, raised and attended schools in an English speaking country and yet seem to have no basic concept of the English language.

Stores that advertise a sale on a certain item for a certain period of time, and then don't have it in stock during that same period of time. Yes, the ad says "while supplies last", but hey, if you run out of the item the FIRST day of the sale, doesn't it ever occur to you asshats that maybe somebody might want to take advantage of the sale TWO days later, and maybe, just maybe, you should restock the shelves DURING THE SALE PERIOD? Otherwise, what's the point in having a sale that lasts for more than one day?

My pet peeve today: Went shoe shopping and only found one shoe of the exact style and size that I wanted. The clerk and I looked everywhere. The other shoe was nowhere to be found.

That happened to me once. It was a store where they had only one shoe on the shelf and gave you the other one, to prevent shoplifting the pair, but they STILL couldn't find the other shoe in the back room!

I hate when other people's feet are too close to me. I would slap them away from me if I was willing to touch them. So, instead, I ask them politely. I need to fix my short fuse.

Pedestrians. They seem to think that they're magically encased in some kind of protective bubble, and therefore they don't need to pay attention whenever they're out walking. They just GO, like a wind-up toy. They cross streets without looking all four ways, without even looking up, without stopping any kind of conversation they may be having with others. They let their kids race across the street without holding anybody's hand, and they're yakking on a cellphone the whole time, so they're completely distracted, even when they're pushing a baby stroller across the street.



And then they have the nerve to get indignant whenever they think they, or their kids, are about to be hit by a car, as if the driver is some kind of maniac who enjoys running down people.

Motorists.



I am a good little pedestrian. I always look both ways (even on a one way street) repeatedly. I never step in front of oncoming traffic even if there is a huge gap. I never cross at a cross-walk unless I have the walk signal (even when there are no cars around).



It is a regularly occurrence that a motorist will cut me off when I have the right of way crossing an intersection - even more appalling is when they do this when I'm pushing a baby carriage. And if they aren't doing that, they are revving their engine like a threat.



I just know that one day I'm going to be hit by a careless motorist and when it happens (assuming I'm still alive) I want to have the smug satisfaction of being in the right. (Oh, I am so mature.)

My boyfriend's driving. What's the point in speeding up towards a red light, or a line of stopped cars? None! and he complains if people drive too slow or too fast, or if they cut him off-- but he's definitely done everything that he complains about other people doing.

I agree with you on that one. Also a BIG pet-peeve of mine is when people walk EXTREMELY slow in a crowded hallway and you can't get around them.

It's worse when people sit or stand on a small staircase while a huge crowd tries to push by them. Then they act all annoyed with other people, like it's our fault or something.

I may have posted this already, but another pet peeve is people who completely block doorways just so they can stand and chat with each other. Is this the ONLY possible location available on the entire planet for an extended discussion on the merits of gallbladder surgery, which mutual funds are best, and Obama vs. McCain? Givemeafreakinbreak and let me through!

Yep, other drivers.



I hate when I'm pouring something from a bottle per se and some of it drips down the side of the bottle. Especially if it's something that gets sticky. Bothers me a lot.



Oh, and pestering flesh eaters. "You're vegan?! Bwubsdfidbn rabble rabble..."

aargh - bottles with pop caps like soy sauce and herbs / spices that once you've opened them, it is impossible to push the cap back down so they are just left open all the time.



Great design guys . . . .

One of my holiday season pet peeves: People who insist on referring to certain movies as "Christmas movies" just because they're set at Christmastime or there is maybe ONE scene set at Christmastime. They're not.



Please take note: Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie by any stretch of the imagination, just because it starts out with a Christmas party. It's about a cop (Bruce Willis) who takes on a bunch of terrorists who take over an office building.



Likewise, Jumanji is NOT a Christmas movie just because there's a scene near the very end that takes place at Christmas.

Misuse of the word literal/literally.



"It literally blew my mind..." Um, no.



"I literally froze to death..." Wrong again.



"She has so much literal crap in her bedroom, she won't be able to lie down..." Ewwwwwwww.

LOL (Yes, I literally laughed out loud when I read that) :P



I know I have lots of pet peeves, but I'm in a semi-decent mood right now so I can't really think of any. I'll post something later when I'm feeling irked.

When I am working around my horses in the barn, the gelding lifts his tail and farts as soon as I am directly behind him. He does this on PURPOSE!
