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 relatives like to make random mouth noises to babies and toddlers like tongue-clicking, etc. It makes me want to smack them in the face sometimes because it is so annoying.

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!

Tailgating and no blinkers.

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 -. -

A recent study showed that 60% of people don’t regularly wash their hands after they use the restroom. - Silverfroststorm

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"!

Then you don't speak English - Swiftdawn

5 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.

*driving home, car got a fresh coat of paint*
*someone throws an open can of oil*
*the oil is all over your car*

6 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!

It’s cute when little kids do it though. - Silverfroststorm

7 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!

My school has so many of these! - zoocksycootserana

8 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

9 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.

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? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

They were jelena get it right.

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

10 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

Have your bath properly everyday and stop relying on deodorant. Scrub your armpits, don't merely slide your sponge around. THOROUGHLY WASH your lowers, please! - chipower

The Newcomers

? 15 year olds saying they feel old
? People who talk about inappropriate stuff all the time

The Contenders

11 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

12 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

13 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!

This totally defines my younger cousins. This is why I use earbuds and headphones around them all the time.

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.

15 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?

Yes, we all have those people that we all want to jump on them in the middle of the night and scream cuss words. - PythonProgrammer23

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


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

23 Bullying

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. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

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 cut myself because I have been bullied science 2nd grade and I am now in 8th and I'm still bullied.. It stinks

24 Bossy leaders

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.

I hate teamwork. There are always the idiots who are always bossy and annoying pompous jerks who take over everything and don't listen to us. I prefer working alone because of this - Lunala

25 People who tailgate when you're going faster than the speed limit

Are you in that much of a hurry where you have to ride my ass to the next stoplight! Pisses me off so much... So I slow down a ton until they try to pass, and then speed back up while they are passing... Not very safe but very effective

Yeah this happens all the time when I drive on mountain roads. I'm driving pretty fast and there's always someone tailgating me. If he wants to drive fast and fly off the side of the road and die in a canyon then that's his problem. - Mcgillacuddy

If I am going faster than the speed limit:

If I am in the fast lane and someone is close behind me, then I move over. If I not in the fast lane and someone is close behind me, then I get mad.

Cars are slowing down for traffic or an accident ahead, but they stay right on your tail.

I really like photosynthesis! Taking photos is very fun!

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

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

I remember there was this one kid at my last school (people spread rumours of him being gay) who always said ''YOLO! '' as a greeting. One day, I told him what it stood for and he said something along the lines of ''What? I just thought it was a cool way to say yo! "... Seriously, did he just hear it and mimic? - RaccoonCartoon

Then he made stuff up about his Grandma saying she got married in WW1 and survived the holocaust, believable if he wasnt a lier right? Well actually he said she died this year 2017. If she got married in WW1 then she would have been over atleats 120. Well he also got a girlfriend, and let me tell you that was it for me. When he first asked the day after he went to sit with her at lunch, that's understandable, but then when he was telling me I said "Ok" that's it nothing else. Well he said this to me when he was walking away "don't be sad" so the next day he did the samething and said don't be sad again. So I said I'm not sad he said well you sound sad. That does'nt make any sense. Also his girlfriend is a drama queen who weares make-up in MIDDLE SCHOOL ok there is nothing wrong with that but ...more

29 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"

I’m terribly afraid of big dogs, but I like small or medium sized dogs. But keep them on a leash for Christ’s sake! - AliciaMae

37 Fat women wearing skinny women's fashions

On one hand, I give these girls props for their confidence and comfort level with their body. On the other hand, they need to learn what is flattering for their body type and accept the fact that some trends will never suit them. What looks "sexy" on girls of one size is a horror show on girls of another size. Clothing manufacturers should stop making some clothes past certain sizes. I mean, sometimes it just looks like a sack of cats going to the river.

Good One! There are perfectly great clothing for plus size women - why the hell would you want to shove your oversized body into a size 3... Really! I can relate... I'm not a plus size woman but I am average but I know my limits - what I should and shouldn't wear. Especially if you're looking in the mirror and it doesn't look good - GIRL, it doesn't look good... Don't wear it. Flaunt what you have in a more flattering way that suits your plus size figure! And stay away from the skinny jeans and the size 3's!

Okay, for starters, if you're trying to look nice, wear something that actually fits. It is a big peeve of mine to see fat rolls hanging out all over the bottom of the shirt. Second, those styles are for skinny twigs, which means it doesn't hang or accent your body the same way as the skinny girl's clothes. Third, you are not skinny by wearing skinny girl clothes. Thank you, and have a nice day.

It looks weird though - GirlyAnimeLover

42 Global Warming Propaganda

What if I told you... climate change is an actual immediate problem that is threatening all life on Earth, and your will to stay ignorant and bring up baseless evidence does not change that fact. Excess greenhouse gases emissions created by humans are being absorbed by the ocean and making it more acidic. This is one of the reasons why we will start to see fish-less oceans in 20 years.

Humans aren't the only problem contributing to Global Warming. It's natural, but humans just speed up the process. - LordDovahkiin

Global Warming may be true, but the way the media exagerates the "doom" of the earth is just plain annoying. They can't even call it "Global Warming" anymore, because places are starting to get extreme winter weather, so they have to change it to "Climate Change. " I think everyone knows by now that polution is contributing, but there are also natural factors involved. People need to calm down and just assess the situation, not advertise it all over the place.

Global warming is a myth created by the left in order to extort money. There is no significant research saying the earth is getting warmer as a result. Historically the Earth has its warming and cooling cycles that accur naturally.

Though I agree with the natural process of the earth, there has been confirmed evidence that climate change is real. Car, factory, and other gases harm the ozone, making the land more vulnerable to radiation and heat. Trash, garbage, and toxic waste affects the water humans and other animals consume. Every day, a football field-sized section of the rainforest, a significant oxygen supply and home to wildlife, is cut down or burned every day. The world needs to listen. We need to stop this destruction. Humans created this danger, and humans need to end it. Please do your research, and do all you can to save our earth. Put a stop to this peril, before it's too late. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

43 Thugs

News Flash, being a "thug" is not "cool" anymore, pull up your pants.

people fake way too much like there "thugs." ritch kids act like there from the rough areas, but if they ever even got close to the rough areas theyd piss there baggy clothes and get killed by the real deal. people in my area, along with myself, get offended and upset when a kid acts lower than themselves. thugs arnt from ritch areas or middle class areas-thugs are from the projects-so grow up and pull your damn draws up!

Its especially annoying when rich kids try to act like they're from "the hood" saying that they're from chi town, the 8 mile, or south bronx, when they actually grew up in a mansion with a millionaire family

Yeah because according to some people, living in crappy areas (ahem mardyke estate), getting stabbed and dying is totally enjoyable. Now that's not funny. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

44 Yards that run down a neighborhood

Not sure if this counts, but there is one street full of old, pretty houses from somewhere between 70s and early 2000s (houses looked better then). But SOMEBODY decided to add an ugly big shed thing next to their house, it's made of metal or steel and is black and grey, very big. RIGHT NEXT TO THEIR HOUSE! It ruined the whole vibe. - RaccoonCartoon

One crack house on the street does bring down the property value. It's not judgmental just a sad fact.

Its like the saying "one bad apple spoils a bunch." I put time and energry into the landscape of my house and why does the neighbor's house look like grow house or drug manufacturing place.

Most judgemental thing I've read on this site. There has to be a medal for you somewhere.

45 Coughing without covering mouth

I remember when an old lady was walking and talking about how sick she was, and a few ladies next to her were concerned, and then she coughed RIGHT IN MY FACE! - RaccoonCartoon

My god why do people still cough without covering their mouths...Why!

Once a flu went around the class and people kept hacking away in my face. Two-Three days later I got ill. - Lunala

So when I was in fourthgrade and this kid Alex (super gross) I was sitting next to him and HE SNEEZED ON MY ARM!

46 Overuse of the Word Actually

I actually do actually believe what you are actually saying without you actually having to qualify it with the word actual.

As you say it's increasing all the time and everybody just joins in this ridiculous trend without a second thought. Do they all think they sound intellectual or something by saying it ALL the time? Instead they just sound stupid, which is a shame because if it is a lecturer or somebody you should be listening to, it becomes impossible to dilate any meaning when every sentence is punctuated in this way. The word becomes completely meaningless and is easily my number one pet hate.

It's probably my number 1 current hate. It's use seems to be increasing all the time. Some people seem to use it almost every sentence.

*cough* this bitchy girl called shaye does this and she makes fun of my 4'11-5'0 height and smells like an old lady (no offense just saying) - Lunala

47 Taking the boy's last name in marriage

Whoever added this is a hyper feminist. This is optional and anyone who does this has agreed to it. You can keep your own last name if you wish so I don't see how it's bad, and apparently guys can take the girl's last name too. Also I will happily refer to myself as a "miss" until I am married and I am ok with that. - Lunala

Umm.. it's the law but okay. I guess it does make sense though - pepeagrees1

Um it’s a tradition - Randomator

Why is this even on the list? You don’t have to change your last name. - 3DG20

48 Eyelash getting in your eye

Agree! It hurts way so much! - GirlyAnimeLover

I have long eyelashes and this happens a lot. Ugh. - Lunala

49 People wearing their glasses in their hair

I wear reading Glasses and when someone comes to talk with me I put my Glasses on my head. I need them only for reading and computor. Hate going in my purse, so ya on my head

Why so this so annoying? It's cool to me... - GirlyAnimeLover

Wearing sunglasses in the hair is perfectly normal to me... - redhawk766
