Pet Peeves

The Top TenXW

1Mouth 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! - flowerchild4eva

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

I understand how chewing with your mouth open can be gross and annoying, but if someone chews loud, it's not their fault. It's physically impossible to chew quieter. - NikBrusk

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!

It's very annoying when people back up when you try to go and when they park the wrong way. - NikBrusk

3Not 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 -. -

THIS IS DISGUSTING! There are sinks in the restroom for a reason!

4People 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"!

This has to be a huge pet peeve of mine. - LemonComputer

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.

Trash makes me depressed. Littering is just plain selfish. I get joy from seeing the natural world undisturbed. Makes me crazy to think that people feel entitled to discard their stuff and expect someone else to take care of the mess.

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

That's why there's a piece of garbage everywhere. - Metts

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. - PotBellyPup

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!

People like these are the reason school shootings happen. - NikBrusk

7Cell 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!

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. - bigyellowtaxi

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?

Oh my god... they could get into a wreck!

8When 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

It's 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!

Some people don't know what "be yourself means".

9Screaming 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!

My brother has tantrums all the time over stupid stuff. I get scratched, bitten, hit, and more CONSTANTLY because of them. It's more dangerous and hurtful than annoying. My brother has a high-pitched scream, so when he screams (again, almost constantly), it hurts my ears, but I also have fear of the police coming around because of the noise and maybe accusing my mum of child abuse (which she would never even think of doing, my mum is perfect with protecting and looking after me, my sister, and my brother). I guess it'll be more annoying than hurtful and fearful when the child isn't a relative to yours though. - LemonComputer

Get your kids under control! If they're unhappy then fix it and if they're just being bratty then punish them!

10The 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.

Why do people name their kids adjectives? It's the stupidest and most cheesiest thing in the world. It could ruin your kid's whole life if you name them "Lively" when they are actually a quiet and keeps to themselves. Who even started this trend anyway? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

It is SO stupid! I mean "Seleiber"? At least they broke up so we don't have to hear it anymore.

They were jelena get it right.

11Putting 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!

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. - ronluna

It's like some people don't like to be in good mood what's worse? They like kill your buzz. Like my elder sister I tell her so excited "I mate this guy we're having such a good time" she be like "ya have been there it's only for a while you will separate soon" what the hell?

Worst thing to ever exist - Zakattack2

13Teens 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.

Yeah you're all doing something stupid and fun and then that one person comes along like, 'stop being so immature.' and everyone just hates them instantly

It's really annoying! They should just focus on themselves!

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!

16The Jersey Shore Cast

They suck. Sad that they get paid a lot of money for being trash, while the rest of us struggle to get a job in this economy and have manners.

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.

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!

17Overuse 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 - Jeheffiner

Just imagine if you were talking to someone in sign language and kept using the sign "like" over and over and over again. Even the deaf person is annoyed at your usage of the word "like". It's so annoying! - kaitlynrad11

They like saying like. - madoog

18Angry Teens who whine about their parents telling them what to do.

I WOULD NOT CALL THIS A PET PEEVE. I WOULD CALL THIS LESSONS LEARNED. AT LEAST YOU HAVE A PARENT WHO CARES SO GET OVER YOURSELVES. YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU LISTENED WHEN YOU GROW UP.

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.

I'm a teen, and I don't get it. Why does it seem like everyone hates their families so much?

They should be grateful that they have parents who actually care about them - AlphaQ

19Skinny jeans on men

I think should all just mind our own buisness. You'll never see me care about another man's jeans. Js.

Guys can wear whatever pants and skinny jeans don't make guys gay that's for fact also

They can wear whatever they want. Don't go putting gender roles on things. - Pegasister12

What the heck? High heels are stupider on men - AlphaQ

20When people say things that they don't know the meaning of

If you don't know what the swears mean, then stop trying to act cool and drop the act!

I really like photosynthesis! Taking photos is very fun!

...Really? - RaineSage

Because you don't want to ask what that means. so you pretend to know and they go on and you sit there confused as crap and at the end you just laugh.
If they ask you to tell them what the word means : your screwed
