The Top Ten

Mouth Noises/chewing with mouth open
Go back to the pasture if you are going to chew like a cow and sound like you're chewing could. Gross, and annoying.
Ew! Yuk, I hate that noise! And also when you can hear there jaw clicking while you chew! That disgusting and very frustrating!


It's so disgusting! And it's really rude for the people who have to hear it My mom does it all the time And I have to tell her how gross
[Newest]I don't understand why people have to chew so loudly. I have a brother who does this, and it gets on my nerves.

2Poor Driving Etiquette
People who get in front of you when there are no cars behind you and then make a right hand turn forcing you to almost make a stop. That drives me crazy and people wonder why I won't let them in.
They pull out in front of you and then do 20mph. You look in your review mirror and there is not a car for miles! Also the sign says "Lane closed ahead, merge" and the idiots wait till the LAST second. If everyone would keep moving and let every other car in... There would not be a back up of traffic for miles! It's the people that think they are better and deseve to be in front of everyone that causes the backup!
When traffic is congested and someone is gracious enough to allow you to merge in front of them, a simple wave to show appreciation is considered appropriate and polite. No wave is just plain rude! Completely annoying!
[Newest]I had to swerve out of my lane once because some guy was turning into my lane... While I was right next to him. If it wasn't for me, we would have crashed.

3People who use the word "your" instead of "you're"
If you speak and write English, do it correctly. This and all other bad grammar are my biggest pet peeves.
YES. This is definitely one of my biggest pet peeves. Simple grammar mistakes drive my crazy. I'm a freshman in high school and I see them all the time. Even some of my friends who are in honors English make irritating grammar mistakes. Seriously people, you're 15, you should know these differences we learned in elementary: to/too/two, your/you're, there/their/they're, its/it's, and many others. IT'S NOT THAT HARD. WHY IS IT THAT AmericanS IN HIGH SCHOOL SPEAK WITH THE GRAMMATICAL EQUIVALENCE OF THIRD GRADERS?
It frustrates me to no end, just the fact that English was my second language too and I still know the difference between "your" and "you're". Honestly, some people need to stop being so lazy and actually type the correct one in; You don't even have to put in the damn apostrophe just so long as it at least says "you're"!
[Newest]Well its not that bad for some people. It doesn't mean they're dumb. It's really mean for people to call others idiots if they don't spell ONE word right. Not everybody is perfect so calm yourselves down. Gosh!

4Not Washing Hands After Using the Restroom
This is extrememly disgusting! I know someone who has the nerve to use the bathroom and not wash her hands, then continues on to the kitchen to eat, touch other people, and touch objects in the house (such as doorknobs, the refrigerator, etc). I wash my hands EVERY TIME I use the bathroom!
In my thinking, it is essential to protect our health except for unpredicted situation...
I'm studying in France for a year, and I have yet to see a French male human being Wash his hands in a public toilet. This might be why all French People do the kissing on the cheeks, as they know that shaking hands is a certain way to spread diseases Down here -. -
[Newest]Ugh I thought I was the only one

5People who throw trash from their car window as they drive
Put a garbage container in your car. The world is not a great big dumping ground. I honk at them.
Yes, a cigarette butt is trash and belongs in your ashtray, not on public streets that then washes out to sea. Nearly as bad as not picking up after your dog...
I hate that, if any one riding with me threw trash out the window, I would pull over and make that person get out to pick up what was thrown

6Bitchy Schoolgirls
God they're annoying. This one girl at school thinks everything is 'weird' and all I said was 'hey' and she said 'its that weirdo again'. I'm gonna shout at her when I hear her next time saying that, don't care who else hears it, she and schoolgirls LIKE THAT in general are annoying.


A girl in my class has gotta be the bitchiest of them all. I cannot stand her. But then again, I really don't care for her at all. And I wanna say: I think she wants me to join her. I refuse to. She's my enemy... And I'm just using the title, not trying to vulgar. Anyway, here's a tip for everyone out there who might be getting bullied from this type of person:

IGNORE THEM. They will go insane. And if you can't do that, just look at them like they're really stupid or give them the evil eye. Or you can just curse them off, which I do NOT recommend in school.
You are not prettier than us, and you are CERTAINLY not smarter than us, so get over yourselves!
[Newest]Totally this should be #1

7The naming of celebrity couples
Naming your kids after adjectives (my Aunt teaches elementary school so I know this) is one thing (examples are Desire, Happiness, etc.). This is an abomination. It's only a matter of time before my Aunt tells me she is now teaching a Cam-whoever Cameron Diaz married. The other new baby name trend is throwing together a baby name prefix (like Br for Brianna) and a suffix (like lyn from Jocelyn, Brooklyn, Evelyn) and throwing together whatever in the middle. I hate that.
They were jelena get it right.
It is SO stupid! I mean "Seleiber"? At least they broke up so we don't have to hear it anymore.

8Cell Phone Drivers
If you pass someone on the freeway going 50-55 in a 65-75 mph zone, swerving in and out of the boundaries of their lane, you can just about bet they are on a cell phone!
Talking on cell phone while driving is rude ^^ dangerous. It is also arrogant; are you really so important and so busy that you have to make calls while you are driving?
Ugh.. I live in California and just recently it's ILLEGAL to talk on your phone and drive.

I hate it so much, it makes everyone a bad driver. Did you know your four times as likely to get into a crash when you talk and drive?

I honk at people I see doing it.


[Newest]Talking on a cell phone is not only dangerous but disrespectful to other road users.

9The Jersey Shore Cast
Yeps I totally agree but what really pisses me off they still think they are gracious and lame and still there are people watching them!
Eww. No. I can't stand them and their whiny voices and their attitudes, I actually never watched a full New Jersey Shore show, but I know what its ALL about.

10Putting others down
I'm deaf and I don't like it when people think I'm retarded! I mean come on people.. We are just regular person except we can't hear that good. So start treating us respect. And don't be ignorant!
I can’t understand talking behind someone’s back. It seems so incredibly unproductive and just very immature. What’s more is that it’s usually adults who have perfected this “art. ” I really can’t stand it. If the negative comment is inquisitive (i.E. , asking a friend for advice), I understand that, but if it’s solely to bash someone, it’s quite pointless, and only serves to make that person look horrible, because, as we will know, in time, there are very few “secrets” left. What you say behind someone’s back will get back to that person, so think about your intention, truth, and fairness.
Those elitist who criticizes person in their back, because of jealousy, they don't want somebody to be higher to them. I don't care if you're famous or not, have money, etc. But talking in the back, spreaking rumors about that person I wanna kill them all. They think that they are right.


[Newest]Tacky at its best!

The Contenders

11Teens that think they're 30 and tell their peers that they are being "immature"
I'm in dance with my best friend and there's a bunch of popular girls on the dance team to right? So we're at a compititon and we (my friend and I) are sitting between the bleachers and the seats when five of the populars come over and tell us to sit up and stop acting so immature, guess what we saw them doing oh I don't know, five flipping minutes later! Running up and down the seats while some of them sat how we were. Ugh!
Well, I act mature sometimes and when you aren't acting appropriate in a situation where you really should be then I will count that as immaturity because if it is obviously not an appropriate situation then that is not good.
I hate that too. It's so annoying!

12Movie talkers
I can't stand people who constantly ask questions and yell out unnecessary comments during a movie... that just pisses me off.


Here are some examples:

When Watching a Comedy: *points* HAHA THATZ FUNNY DEHHHH

When Watching a Drama: OMIGOD ITS LIKE SO SAD!

Shut the frack up already.


UGH! What The HECK. I HATE Talkers.. "Stop Talking, Get Your Foot Off My Seat And SHUT THE BLANK UP! You Know I Went To See Harry Potter 7 Pt2 And These Idiots Brought A Infant Into The Theater... I Can't Take It.. I Really Can't!
[Newest]So true bro, I feel what you saying.

13When people copy you in every way
I know, some of my friends always copy me, and then I'm like, "OK, from now on, I'M THE ONLY PERSON DOING THIS AND NO COPYING! " but then the other friend would be like, "just let her do it, " but seriously, You're copying me! And then I would say, "You know, I hate it when people copy me and such" but they don't understand I'm partially talking about them! THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY can't YOU JUST GROW A BRAIN FOR ONCE! I JUST GET SO MAD AH
Its so annoying! They do everything you do, and even if they think its funny, its not! I hate people that are like that!
Maybe one thing that they like about me would be fine, but do NOT copy every single thing I do, it gets on my nerves because I am trying to do something and you are just trying to do it exact same as me, sure you can use maybe one thing like me, but not everything!
[Newest]Its annoying when they copy everything you do and get popular.

14Overuse of the Word Like
and like i was like you know like walking and like it was like raining like so not like cool...haha learn to speak proper english! you dont sound cute at all,
i hate the fact that im from liverpool, the word "like" is used in every single sentence. it gets really irritating


The Cally Valley Girl craze is over. Drop the "like" and learn to speak intelligent English.
[Newest]I'm a sophomore, and it's so annoying!

15People with horrible breath
Its not their fault, wow most of these people have health problems
I hate when some people that have horrible breath. I mean when they talk I wonder they don't smell their breath? They just start talking and that disgusting smell comes makes me sick right away. yuck!
It stinks up my sinuses for days, then I have the same nasty breath!

16Parents telling us kids what to do or not to do
Oh, come on! Let us have a little freedom! God! I feel bad for a lot of kids-- my friend never even saw the Lion King.
'And if I want my room a mess, since you don't go in it, ma, lemme keep it like it is! ' If it's good enough for me, then let it be! And gosh, I really hate it when they say, "Clean your room"... It rubs me the wrong way.
I am 13 and my dad does not let me sit in the front seat of the car, and he
go out of the house without his supervision (well I can take the trash out but
I can't actually cross the street. Jesus Christ Dad! I know the rules, and I
think I'm old enough, I'm 13, not 5!


Dear, your Dad will give you freedom as he sees you maturing, so have a little patience, he loves you and he is trying to train you for even the small things in life... Enjoy now...
I'm 21 and my mom always says that I act like I'm not old enough to make my own decisions. But I am old enough and she refutes my decisions! And then makes them for me.
[Newest]My mom wont let me walk on a the treadmill at home unless she is in the house lol

17Angry Teens who whine about their parents telling them what to do.
I know I'm still sort of a teenager, but very close to being a full-grown adult. I see teenagers or even hear some of my friend's who are still teenagers complaining that their parents tell them what to do. Obviously if it's a house chore, just do it. It will most likely take up 5-10 minutes of your time, it isn't that hard.
Like you didn't whine to your parents when you were a teen? 😒
[Newest]You are born because of them. Gosh, people are ungrateful.

18Screaming children/ temper tantrums
Come on, I never would have gotten away with throwing a fit like that in public, or if I was too young to know better, they would have taken me outside, end of story.
Learn how to raise a kid and keep your demon spawn under control. Nobody wants to hear your offspring throwing a temper tantrum, and it makes you look bad. NOW SHUT THE THING UP!
God my brother does this all the time... it is the most annoying thing in the whole world! By the way if anyone thinks you are cool on this list any teenager can tell that this list is mostly 40-60 year olds.


[Newest]The sad thing is the parents don't do anything about their screaming child. That is what makes me tick.


19Body odor
Ewww no one wants A Person that has body odour
There is a thing called deodorant
Getting paired up with him at gym pukes


You can even use your imagination and scrub your pits with dryer sheets! :D

Some arrogant kid in my class would always make fun of my classmates because he thought he was better. One day, he said a girl had a big belly and she said at least she didn't have a big head,
Some people are just SO big headed that you just want to squish their head!
Arrogant people just make me want to hit them in the head with a shovel
