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! - 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 lips make noises all the time. Sometimes I'm laying in bed, and then suddenly... CEEERAAQUUASS..
Gross! - RaccoonCartoon

2 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!

3 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!

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 -. -

My Dad never cleans his hands after using the bathroom, even when he does it on a tree. - RaccoonCartoon

4 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.

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"!

People should've learned the difference in grade 1.

5 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. - 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!

There was one at my school who was always over the top dramatic, just so all the other girls would treat her like a god again. She ALWAYS judged people by their looks. I overheard one of her conversations. One girl jokingly said ''I eat McDonalds everyday.'' and she said ''No, if you ate McDonalds everyday, you'd be fat! '' then she said ''Would you still be friends with me if I was fat? '' and she said ''No.''... They both laughed it off, but she really is like that. - RaccoonCartoon

6 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.

My area is always polluted. McDonalds wrappers everywhere, coke cans, alcohol bottles.. It's really a mess. Your car has lots of space for a REASON... - RaccoonCartoon

7 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!

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?

I saw a lass talking on the phone while driving with KIDS in the back! I just thought to myself ''What a bad parent! ''. - RaccoonCartoon

8 When 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!

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

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!

Sometimes, people copy my drawings, and it makes me mad. - RaccoonCartoon

9 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!

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

I hate it so much, especially when others can't help it. It is a HUGE put down on others when they can't help it and everyone is complaining at them. (Sorry if this isn't proper grammer) What gives them the right to put others down? How would you feel if someone did that to you? Oh wait, that probably wouldn't happen maybe because your popular and everything is always a joke to you guys. WHAT ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE? Please don't be so selfish, think about how other people would feel. What good does it bring for you anyway?

My brother has low functioning autism, and I was bullied for it. It ain't my fault! - RaccoonCartoon

10 Screaming children/ temper tantrums

In my last house, we had a lovely old man neighbour. He was really kind, but once his wife died, he decided to move away. Then, a seemingly drunk mother and her many kids (way too much fun in bed! ) moved in. It all started when they were all yelling at my dog to shut up, and they said they'd tell their dad. Like that will do anything! Then, they started running around our front yard, screaming, leaving rubbish everywhere, bringing their food and toys, being jerks. They HAVE their own front and back yards, back off! It got worst, though. We checked our mailbox, and an important letter was ripped up! This was obviously those nasty kid's fault. My Dad had to piece it all together to see what it was! My mum just came up with excuses for it all like ''They're just kids! " but that is NEVER a good excuse. It's actually illegal what they've been doing. It got even worst! They started chanting insults at me, and whenever I walked outside, they'd point and whisper about me! Give me some ...more - RaccoonCartoon

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 sister is a good example of this. If she can't get a 500 dollar iPhone, she'll scream and cry for weeks till she gets her way! - RaccoonCartoon

The Contenders

11 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. - Lunala

Some kid always stinks up the whole classrooms every timer we switch. Even my language arts teacher complained that her room stank. - Powerfulgirl10

Unfortunately... I have a body odor.. Quite bad! Oh well. - RaccoonCartoon

12 Teens 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 agree, and don't purposely tell someone that they're immature. - skimmet1

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

Some teens my age are immature, but I also hate killjoy know-it-all tattlers. - Lunala

13 The 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

They were jelena get it right.

Remember the girl with the name ''KVIIlynn''? Awful! - RaccoonCartoon

14 Movie talkers

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

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 always hear kids go ''Huh? '' and their parents explain the whole scene. COME ON! - RaccoonCartoon

15 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.

They need some tic-tacs or something - Adventurur2

16 People 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 don't like stinky breath, but it isn't a pet peeve of mine.

Not as bad as BO because it usually doesn't stink up rooms as much. But it's still gross. Some people can't help it though.. - Lunala

17 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

Teenagers need to be thankful they even HAVE parents. - RaccoonCartoon

18 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! - 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...

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.

A better pet peeve would be helicopter parents. - Bubbyboop

20 Skinny 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

They can wear what they want, unless it's something freaky like a crocodile skin jacket... - RaccoonCartoon
