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

Okay, so I have this really close friend, and I love her to death (not gay, just friendly), but when she eats, she chews with her mouth closed but I can hear her tounge scrapping against the roof of her mouth! I know it sounds crazy, but its true! - pepeagrees1

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!

Driving right through crosswalks even though pedestrians have the right of way. Also people who pass you in the fast lane on the highway only to get right in front of you and drive 40 mph

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 -. -

Absolutely disgusting. The other day at school a boy sneezed and ate all the mucus back up AND refused to wash his hands. The most disgusting thing I've seen in a while. - kaisietoo

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"!

English is my second languages and I think only grammar Nazi care about this... - GirlyAnimeLover

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!

Y'know, I'm curious to why they adopted that mindset in the first place. - alphadan12

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.

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

Really annoying. Wait till you get home or near a bin. Or just leave it in your car, not where people walk and it ruins the landscape. - kaisietoo

7 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!

I HAD A FRIEND WHO DID EVERYTHING I DID...

8 Screaming 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

It's more embarrasing for the parent. - kaisietoo

9 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?

Get off your bloody phone people! Get Bluetooth if you must. - kaisietoo

10 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.

GradeAUnderA actually talked about annoying names. - LemonComputer

The Newcomers

? People who stop eating a food they clearly like just because of one little ingredient that's in it

They're so fussy. Seriously, my sister is like that. If we were short on food, what would she do then? - kaisietoo

? Genwunners

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!

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?

I needed to put my rat down

12 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

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!

AGH! I just want to stand up and scream at them in the cinema, but then I would be interuppting other movie-goers. - kaisietoo

13 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.

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

I acts immature starting at the age of 11 (Yeah, I'm already mature that time). I do appropriate stuffs at the right moments and I turned childish when home (Teenage's brain). - GirlyAnimeLover

15 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.

I don't like it when a guy has horrible breath, and he wants to kiss me,
but he's not willing to go to the dentist to get his mouth a deep cleaning.

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

It's certainly annoying, but with most things it's necessary. "Clean your room"? I hate it, but it's important (although it takes a couple tries to get me to do it). "Get off the computer"? Bugs me, but I know I can go on later, or tomorrow. Examples of too much, however, would include how we're not aloud to play tag on the equipment. Not we're not allowed to run, but no tag in any form. We did "non running" tag, and "doge tag" which is like we're on four legs, being Shiba Inus (doges), tagging each other. We're being careful, and not moving very fast, with no fall risk. Still, we're told to leave like we just shot someone. We could be lying on the ground tagging each other, and we'd be in trouble. We're not allowed to do much on the playground at all, really. Climbing something? "How dare you! " Sitting on a railing? "Oh my StarClan you're about to derping DIE! " All you can really do is wander around on it, admiring it like "oh, that's a nice pole. What a lovely slide. Hey, that ...more - 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...

I know that they're trying to be responsible with us, but most of them tend oto have this problem where they never admit when they're wrong. - alphadan12

17 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 - PeeledBanana

Like seriously, I, like, hate it when people, like, use the word like loads. - kaisietoo

19 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

Typical teenagers... - PeeledBanana

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

Geez, what if they were a Transgender? You still hate them? - GirlyAnimeLover
