Top 10 Biggest Pet Peeves

The Top Ten

1 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

My little sister used to do that all the time. It wouldn't matter what the food is, heck even applesauce, you could hear every little noise in her mouth. In truth it's rude, even if you're eating something like chips, you don't have to move your mouth like a puppet just to make yourself heard at the dinner table

2 People 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.

God, it's so annoying to me when people can't even spell, text properly, or even use apostrophes right.

Jeez, stop bullying people because of their grammar, It's no big deal. Not everyone's grammar is as good as yours and you need to realize that. I hate it when people judge others by their grammar so much because grammar doesn't matter in these comments, Who the heck cares if someone has bad grammar? I mean seriously, It's a huge problem in social media, people always want to be so judgemental about other people's grammar.

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?

3 Poor 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!

Looking at those people who keep Going 5-10 miles under the speed limit

4 Not 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!

um its common sense, plus its just me but washing my hands feels satisfying

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 -. -

Hey! That is not true! The French are very sanitary! Probably more so than Americans. DON'T DISRESPECT!

5 When people copy you in every way

This is definitely one of my friend's pet peeves. We don't hang out anymore (just a simple greeting and nothing else) but in school, when I had a cool idea, he copied it.

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

This is a big one and I have been guilty of this myself. Seriously, there was this one girl I would say something or do something and it would be a day later she would do the same thing. This one guy I was talking buying a car and then he just started just saying every word I said. Like if I said a certain phrase to him he would start talking about the car and find some way to use the same phrase. Did not end up buying anything from him. It is super annoying and people have done it all my life.

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!

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! (Just kidding) - kaisietoo

6 Bitchy 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!

There's this one girl that I HATE with a passion she dresses like she's about to go to a frat party and she always looks down on people. she even bullied me and my friend saying we weren't good enough and things like that.

7 Screaming children/ temper tantrums

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!

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.

Why is a grammar error higher than a sound that could be used to torture others?

I work with kids. NOTHING more irritating than making a big deal out of nothing and being inconsolable.

8 The naming of celebrity couples

Stormi, enough said. Who are the idiots who came up with this name? The KarTRASHians. They are meta idiots who only care anout themselves and no one else like Logan Paul.

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.

Desire and Happiness are nouns. Desirable and happy are adjectives. A noun names a person, concept etc. An adjective qualifies it. - chipower

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?

They were jelena get it right.

9 People 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.

I detest people who litter, especially those who throw their trash right where a garage can is visible. Why is it SO hard to put the trash in the receptacle?...AND to throw something out of a moving vehicle just drives me crazy. I see this planet as shared by ALL of us and I find it disrespectful for you to litter my home. Please parents teach them when they are young. It is also extremely dangerous for our wildlife. OH, I COULD GO ON AND ON! but I know people who preach are someone else's pet peeve so I will acknowledge and respect their choices...Just respect other people and PLEASE DON'T LITTER!

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

10 Cell 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!

This quite annoying when people text and drive it quite dangerous

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.

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?

The Contenders

11 Putting 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!

Man I want to meet a deaf person. They seem more chill than non-deaf people. - 0w0uwu

People who think they own other people and think they are the Boss of everyone.

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.

I was playing with my old friends and I was having the time of my life then some jerk kid came and said we weren't pmaying right and ryined the whole mood.

12 Teens that think they're 30 and tell their peers that they are being "immature"

Yeah it's annoying to tell that to your peers, but some adults actually don't get it. They're all like "you think we haven't been teenagers before? ", but that was like 20-25 years ago. But the kids that think they're all that, they're the ones that are immature. Honestly.

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!

It's fine to do it to someone who is CONSTANTLY immature. But if people just wanna have fun, then worry about yourself! These people are WAY more annoying than "immature" people. "Immature" people can actually be awesome.

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 agree, and don't purposely tell someone that they're immature.

13 Movie 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!

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.

14 The 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.

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.

I hate Jersey Shore

15 Angry 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

#17 on here is hypocritic because #16 suggests angry teens who complain about their parents telling them what to do is annoying and #17 suggests that parents telling teens what to do or not to do is annoying. I agree with the opinion that teens who whine about their parents telling them what to do are annoying because it's just weird and annoying.

16 Parents telling us kids what to do or not to do

They're preparing you for the future. I hate it, don't get me wrong, I really do, but I understand and have learned to accept it. So listen here, I am only 10, but as sweet and kind as I can be, I am hot-headed. I know when someone has crossed the line, my parents are on the verge to doing so, but I have given them handicaps. Too many handicaps at this point, but they are my parents. My dad got so mad once he chipped my sister's tooth. He didn't use force, just slid against her a little too close. He has crossed the line, I know that. But in reality, my sister would remember that and say "I was stupid. It can interest a boy, ya know? " "How come? " I would ask, "Because, it proves that I can take a beating. Not like Cyanide, I would never do that, but I can take a beating." she would say smiling. I would only smile back and soothingly say "Yes sis, you can take a beating. But I wouldn't suggest trying to get a horse to fall in you like Cyanide." "Haha! Noted." she would say. We know ...more

Very true. I have to say, even at 10 you're more mature than I've ever been. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

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...

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'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.

17 Overuse 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 agree. No idea how people think this is more cute than annoying. - 3DG20

Like, oh my God! Why do you like, always like, use this word? Like, can't you see how like, annoying that like, sounds?

i hate the fact that im from liverpool, the word "like" is used in every single sentence. it gets really irritating

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!

18 Bullying

Though I'm popular right now, I used to get bullied a lot in Years 3 - 6. I've honestly never liked bullies, their only existence is to be dicks to people and I don't mess with that. Sometimes toasting people is funny because it can be banter, just like me and my friends who always roast each other. But sometimes, it can cross boundaries.

The comments below prove that bullying is more of a problem or danger than a peeve. However, I've been bullied, but can ignore and brush it off, or roast them. Everyone in my class thinks I'm brainless! One thing I keep in mind is becoming depressed or beating yourself up over it only gives the bully what he/she wants, and doesn't solve anything either way.

EDIT: A few years later after posting this comment, I found that depression isn't actually a choice. Harming yourself is, but depression is definitely not something you have a say in. Sorry for my misconception. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

I am bullied and yes its no fun... People that always call you ugly and fat.. It leads to bigger problems just shut up!

I hate this. There was a kid in my school, he was really awful. He hit me, teased me about being "stupid about math" and was bossy and very arrogant.

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

lol its kinda funny but when you start acting like you do its annoying

I really like photosynthesis! Taking photos is very fun!

...Really?

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

One time when I was younger, I said to my dad I'm going to molest you because I didn't know what the word "molest" meant. Lol

20 Body odor

Ewww no one wants A Person that has body odour
There is a thing called deodorant

Once some idiot forgot to put on deodorant and he ended up stinking up the classroom. He smelt like farts, rotting flesh and onions combined with mouldy cheese and sweat squeezed from smelly socks. Everyone thought that someone had farted.

Some kid always stinks up the whole classrooms every timer we switch. Even my language arts teacher complained that her room stank.

If I shimmy away from you or reel away when you come too close, you might want to catch a whiff of your own body odor because maybe something's up.

21 Arrogance

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

22 Getting interrupted when talking

I used to have a toxic friend that did this ALL THE TIME. if I'm saying something, let me finish. are you that impatient that you can't wait a few seconds?!

Get this all the time and I tell them off.

23 When people don't keep their big dogs on a leash

I hate dogs...they give me massive panic attacks! It really annoys me that I can't go to a public place without being constantly worried, nervous or scared of dogs, I went to my friends the other day when my friends friends dog just came running through the front door while I was standing their, I immediately ran upstairs, anyway that's not the point...sometimes I even see dogs walking behind their owners on a street with no lead...the owner can walk off without realising their dog is 10 meters behind them. And when there is a sign saying "please keep dogs on leads" it's amazing how many people can't read!

Not everyone likes dogs and doesn't want them jumping up on them all the time. I especially hate it when people just tell their dogs to stop instead of physically moving the dog.

Yess, it's so annoying, I'm afraid of dogs like legit! And I feel very uncomfortable in public just them being there, I'm not saying by any means that they're not allowed to go out, I just think that it's really annoying and disrespectful, so ATTENTION DOG OWNERS, KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH, OH AND ANOTHER THING IT IS SO DISGUSTING WHEN YOU DON'T PICK UP YOUR DOGS "TRASH"

*let them run free in publicI am afraid of dogs! Not everyone thinks dogs are cute and loyal. Please respect other people and keep them on a leash when out in public walking them.

24 People that constantly refer to their girlfriend as "my girlfriend" when you already know her name

Right, babe. Just call me ANGIE!

I mean it's the other way around they refer to my girlfiend as "your girlfriend... " I mean you know her name... Just call her it

This is my girlfriend, My Girlfriend.

"My girl/man" Ugh, she/he has a name!

25 Bossy leaders

I actually HATE this. It can be very annoying and sometimes hurtful. Sadly sometimes I catch myself doing this, and when I do, I try to stop.

For sure! Once given a position of leadership, all you have to do is LEAD, not BOSS. There is a difference. A good leader leads and is part of the group. A boss delegates to the leaders understanding his appointed leaders will, indeed, guide their groups toward the desired goal.

SERIOUS PET PEEVE OF MINE! When assigned a group project with my friends, I usually sit back and let them lead. Unfortunately, this doesn't exactly work out well for the rest of the group as they normally end up being told off and their ideas aren't given credit. I honestly cannot stand bossy leaders. Ugh.

I am one of the quiet people so other kids take charge. But they have to quiet everyone down so they can hear my ideas. I want to take charge for once. But since almost none of my friends are in my classes, I stuck joining a group who already has a leader. And if I am starting to write a script, for example, another person is already doing the script.
