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

My grandpa makes the most annoying noises with his mouth not only at home but in public too! NO SOCIAL ETIQUETTE WHATSOEVER! And it REALLY annoys me. Does anyone have any advice on how to tell him?

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!

Coming from a person who lives in Massachusetts with the worst drivers of America, this is a huge pet peeve of mine. Almost everyday, I see a car that was in a crash be taken to repair. It really makes me cringe seeing a car with so much damage almost every time I enter a car. And don't get me started on Boston rush hours... - kaitlynrad11

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 -. -

Ugh I thought I was the only one

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"!

When I was younger I never knew you're existed. Looking back, I am thoroughly ashamed. - RiverClanRocks

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

That drives me mad

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!

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.

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

8Screaming 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!

Yes, control your offspring! - itrain2

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

9When 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!

Its annoying when they copy everything you do and get popular. - gemcloben

10Cell 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. - bigyellowtaxi

They are pretentious fools who are putting others in grave danger! Life can end in a moment. Sadly, many of these morons have children with them.

The Newcomers

?One Word Responses

Ok, how would you like it if someone replied with "k" or "oh" or even "lol" like, obviously you don't care so why not just tell the person you don't care. I think it's better to be honest then just pretend like you don't give a fxck. And especially when you type a really long message and then they're like "oh" or "haha" like I took so much time typing it and all you respond with is "oh". Whoever does this should be ashamed of themselves😂

?People scraping utensils on their teeth

It's really annoying when people are eating and then all of a sudden I hear them scraping their fork or spoon on their teeth. Like first off, no one wants to hear that, second, its bad for your teeth. I don't understand why anyone would do that. And then I tell them to stop and they're like "what? " I mean seriously..come on. Whoever does that, just leave 😂

The Contenders

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!

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. - ronluna

Tacky at its best!

12Teens 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!

I know someone like this. She's a year younger than me. - RiverClanRocks

13The 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.

14Movie talkers

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

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. - arbeZameniC

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!

I have eyes, and I can see exactly what is happening in the movie. I hate people like this. My class used to watch a lot of movies in 5th grade, and I wanted to strangle or beat the people who did this. You have been blessed with the gift of seeing, so use it correctly because there are plenty of people who'd kill their very own family just to see the world for 5 seconds. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

15People with horrible breath

Its not their fault, wow most of these people have health problems

It stinks up my sinuses for days, then I have the same nasty breath!

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!

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! - Trivium

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.

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.


Like you didn't whine to your parents when you were a teen? 😒

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.

You are born because of them. Gosh, people are ungrateful. - gemcloben

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,

Arrogant people just make me want to hit them in the head with a shovel

Some people are just SO big headed that you just want to squish their head!

Arrogance on a man is a very ugly thing
