Top 10 Biggest Pet Peeves
No offense but It's really gross when other people chew mushed up food with their mouths open in public. Even the image for this item on the list is really disgusting.
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
Oh good- I thought this peeve was rarer, but apparently it's pretty common. I can't say whether or not some people have a predisposition for this kind of etiquette, but it's gotten to be so intolerable for me that I find myself moving to other rooms in the house when trying to eat with my family. My mother and father both smack their lips, and my little brother (pardon my neologisms) "glurps" whenever he imbibes something. What I'd give for some peace and quiet!
Seems there are too many programs on T.V. where people are eating and talking with their mouths FULL; chewing, mumbling and rattling fast food wrappers as they gobble the grub. The 'great divide' between rich and poor is, unfortunately, a serious reality, but good manners cost nothing. These needless media-driven example of stuffing gluttonously sets a poor example for youngsters, and disgusts courteous people everywhere.
Please, writers, discard these rude scenes from visibility; they really do NOT make any story 'more real' in a valuable or constructive way~~!
It's called grammar, people! I'm 13, and I have much better grammar than the vast majority of adults! I understand the occasional typo, or if you misspoke, but at least try! I don't mind small mistakes, like commas when they aren't needed, because I do that a lot. But with the your vs. you're thing, it isn't that hard! I have known the difference since second grade!
YOUR means belonging to someone, while YOU'RE WITH AN APOSTROPHE means you are! Understand? And don't even get me started on the they're, there, and their thing!
If I'm 13 and I can use proper grammar (most of the time. I am still a kid) then adults should be able to also!
I have to agree with everyone on this pet peeve. It's very annoying to be a Floridian reading your own classmate who is older than you's work and notice that they spelled it wrong. I still can't believe that it was necessary, but a year ago, eighth graders were still being notified that there's a difference between the words. For example, it's is a contraction for it is while its is the plural of it. You're is a contraction of you are and your is a possessive. I know this, but half of my own grade doesn't seem to grasp it.
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.
This is so true! I have friends online who are 16 and 18 who spell "your" instead of "you're"! You wanna know how old I am? FOURTEEN! It is so disappointing to see this. I mean, they learned it in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! IT REALLY IS NOT HARD TO PUT AN APOSTROPHE, AN "R", AND AN "E"! Seriously if humanity is getting so lazy that they can't even spell on their devices, I fear for where this world is going
I live in Michigan, where statistically, we have the second worst drivers on the roads in the states (right behind California, who are beating us by around 1%. Must be all those people leaving lol). I hate driving here. I mean, they all preach that you should follow the rules, but my mom texts while driving, my dad speeds, my brother and cousin don't know how to slow down, there are around 4 accidents in Grand Rapids every day and 7 in Detroit. Freaking scary yo!
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!
I would say that bus is one of those slow drivers. They don't drive poorly 'cause their job is to pick up passengers and I totally understand. But whenever I encounter them, they really piss me off. I have to wait until almost every cars behind me on the left lanes past over me then I can get around them. Such a waste of time!
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...
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!
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 -. -
So true! And it annoys me so much, that I actually Tell them to do so when they don't! Of course, only if I know them. (not to strangers laugh out loud) because I don't have to hang out with strangers all day and come in contact with their hands now do I?
I tended to do this as a kid, but when I read about how FILTHY bathrooms (especially public ones) tend to be, that's when I made a vow to ALWAYS wash my hands after using the toilet, no matter how badly it smells.
I really hate the type of popular school girls who act incredibly obnoxious to other people just because they are not popular or good enough to be friends with them.
Most obnoxious schoolgirl I ever encountered was a girl in 3rd grade. Awful thing who tattled on me for every single thing. One time I was playing with some paper (I was bored as could be) and she started complaining. I formed a group to extinguish her (metaphorically speaking), and it worked. We began getting on her nerves and torchering her to the point where she couldn't take it. But we didn't stop there. We got the principal involved, who got angry with her. In just 6 months, my friends and I destroyed the most obnoxious girl in the school. Unfortunately, she was in my 4th grade class, and she was the same way, but I left that school.
This should be number 1 by FAR FAR FAR! This girl in my class doesn't like me because I broke up with her so she told her dad (who happens to be the Principal) that I hit her which was a total and blatant lie because I'm one of the top and best behaved kids in my class. So he chews me out. Then she lied to all the girls and tells them bad stuff about me so they all hate me. It is terrible. They try to ruin your life because they didn't get their way and that seriously ticks me off.
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.
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.
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.
This is so annoying! I also hate it when the media give individual celebrities nicknames, like Ri-Ri and K-Stew. It just seems so contrived, unnecessary and idiotic. And it always seems to start with Jennifer Lopez. "Bennifer" was one of the first couple names and "J-Lo" was one of the first individual names. Are she and Casper called "Jasper"?
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?
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.
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.
Yep. Once I was writing a story to show the class for our topic but my friend copied and finished hers. She then showed it to our teacher who read it out loud to the class and they were all so fond of her story - even though the credit was meant to go to me, then people kept asking why I copied her and her story title, and I tried to tell them that it was my work originally but they wouldn’t listen and she copied me, she still does in writing and art. And I hate it, so anyone who does this please stop, it ruins our hard work.
Me: I hate the new PowerPuff Girls reboot.
My sister, Sasha: Well, I hate it too.
Me: I love Teen Titans. Melvin is so cute.
Sasha: I agree. Because I always have to agree with you, older sister.
Me: I love Vocaloid because the songs are so good, I love the song Happy Synthesizer by Luka and Gumi.
Sasha: I love that program and song, too!
Thankfully, the only thing I like and she doesn't is Pocky.
Every time someone throws a temper tantrum whether it's a child or even an adult, it always makes me feel sad. I hate the sound of screaming and crying in general even though it's completely normal for babies and children to do that when they are at a young age.
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.
This is so aggravating. especially when the parents wont do anything about it, other than say calm down, instead of actually disciplining their child. its also irritating when this happens during a movie in theaters, and the parents wont leave with their child so they don't disrupt the movie. Then the parent is just like "deal with it." and I'm like "I've been dealing with it for 2 HOURS! " AH!
I have little brothers so I know that all too well but it gets on my nerves every single time, it's just really annoying, especially when you're in public like so embarrassing. Every time they do that I was like "hey, I'll give you this and that only if you stop crying" only to shut the whining up
What's the point throwing garbage out of the car when you can just put it into the recycling bin later on? Also innocent animals could die from eating plastic by mistaking it for food as well thanks to people dropping litter on the floor.
I don't care if it's biodegradable, litter is litter, and someone has to come pick up your mess. You are probably on the way to a place with a trash bin, USE IT!
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.
Yeah, my mom is one of "those people" who texts at red lights. When it turns green, I have to yell at her that we can go because she can't wait 2 minutes to reach our destination before talking/texting/googling something. We sat through three 2-minute light cycles once because she was looking some cooking recipe up. Yeesh!
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.
Don't forget, in Florida, where there's at least three car accidents a day in Orlando alone, many of these accidents are from this exact problem. Pet peeve? More like something that should be a stronger law everywhere beside places like California.
The light turns green and the car in front of you delays moving because they are in the middle of a text. They look up just as it is turning yellow and they speed through the intersection leaving you with a red light.
I might be weird for saying this, but I find the sound of typing quite annoying. It’s harder to concentrate.
Awful timing, how am I meant to dodge if
I’ve already been hit?
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?
There was 4 girls and I was very good friends with them, then one day they decided to blow me off and say I'm dumb and stupid and a lot of other hurtful things. I let it go, and went on to the "Jokester/Popular" group. But, since I'm newer to the school, they treat me as a puppet and shove it in my face that I have no friends. They decided to make up this twin sister of mine that's "SOOO much better." Put yourself in my shoes would ya?
One time my brother told his best friend that the reason I get mad easily is because I'm autistic, which is extremely offensive in my opinion. And another time at school, almost the entire class was laughing at a special-needs kid doing something weird. Those are some nasty opinions if you ask me.
why does people get jealous when someone is greater than them. being great is very fine, as long as you don't bump into people's ways. definitely, the worst thing in the world. when someone pulls me down, I want to smack his idiotic and hypocrite face until he gets his lesson.
Honestly, there are some very mature teens out there. If you constantly have to point it out, you aren't mature. Grow up before you tell others to do so. I'm 17, but people tell me if they didn't already know my age, they would think I was at least 27-28. Let others tell you that you're mature, don't self-title yourself as so.
When it's alright to be immature (e.g. In a party) let the people around you be immature! I don't act silly or overreact to stuff (unless it's something I'm scared of, but everyone's scared of something, and I remove myself from uncomfortable situations if able to and I never scream like a baby), but I allow others to do so - It's not like you need other people's permission to act that way unless you actually need to be mature.
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!
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.
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.
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!
They need some tic-tacs or something
Movie talkers, or the Movie Laughers who laugh really loudly, even when there isn't a joke. It's distracting, rude, and ruins the experience. Just SHUT UP!
I was watching my favorite movie, Flight of the Navigator, not too long ago. My little Kindergardener sister wouldn't shut up! "Hey, look, there's the spaceship! Oh my goodness, Sarah Jessica Parker's so pretty! Wow, that's creepy! He was gone for eight years? Robots robots robots! He's the navigator now! What the heck does compliance mean? That's so funny! David's SO cute, I'm gonna kiss him! He's In 1986? I thought it was 1978! Oh, it's a time travel movie! I get it! "
I'm not joking when I say these are the exact same things she says EVERY time I watch this movie in her presence.
Oh, she's an impossible person to watch movies with. Even in a CINEMA, she does this!
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.
Christ these kinds of people are why I rarely go to the movies because they ruin the whole experience with their chatter! You're better off just buying a DVD or watching movies on T.V. then wasting your time going to a damn theater these days! Hell online streaming seems like a better alternative!
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,
I hate those kind of people, nobody is better than the others we are all the same
Some people are just SO big headed that you just want to squish their head!
Arrogant people just make me want to hit them in the head with a shovel
You should learn how to make decisions, but until you're 18, your parents still get to make the big ones for you. Shut up already! If you haven't noticed, kids that make their own decisions end up worse off than kids who respect their parents statistically. Grow up, look back, and thank your parents!
Mom: Nora, clean your room please.
Nora: Wha-why mom?
Mom: Becuase it's a mess. Now go.
Nora: NO! I'm going to be late for the movies. It starts at 7:00!
Mom: It's just going to be a few minutes. Plus, you can skip most of the ads.
Nora: But my cru- my best firend is going to be there!
Mom: I am in charge here, and I said go clean your room!
Dad: What's going on?
Nora: Mom is making clean my room right before I go to the movies. I'll be late!
Dad: Your mother's right. Go and clean your room.
Nora: Oh okay Das *gives peck on cheek* love you!
Dad: Love you too sweetheart.
Mom: *Shakes head and makes coffee*
I get that can get annoying, but these people complaining every time their parent tells them to do something is 10 times as annoying!
Brat: Oh my god! I like, so totally like, hate my dad! He like, tells me what to do like, all of the time and like, I can’t even like, have a boyfriend! I like, so totally like, have it the worst!
Meanwhile a lot of people have parents that either purposely abused them or died, so if you’re that person, think about that and tell me you still have it the worst without looking like an idiot!
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.
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
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.
My mom is so overprotective of me and I can't do certain things because of it. This is what she constantly says:
-no weird YouTube videos
-no going out alone
-no cooking with the stove
-no riding inverted roller coasters
-no paranormal T.V. shows at night
Also, EVERY SINGLE DAY, my parents are telling me to study, regardless if I have school or not (including vacations and weekends). We're Asian.
-You play computer/ipad too much. Go study!
-you watch too much YouTube. Go study!
-you listen to music too much. Go study!
-why are you drawing random pictures? Go study!
It's always "STUDY, STUDY, STUDY". All the time. COME ON! IT'S THE WEEKEND/SUMMER, GIVE ME A BREAK HERE! >:(
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!
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!
This can like be like super like annoying like there's this boy like in my school and like he legit like sounds like this like when he like speaks.
This entry, is like so true. I like, so hate it when people like, overuse the word like. It's like SO annoying! I like just want to slap people like that.
It's like, so like, annoying like, I like, wanna like, throttle sombody! YOU SOUND LIKE A FRICKING STEREOTYPICAL TEENAGE SNOB! SHUT UP!
People always saying the word "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is VERY annoying, and is an example of this pet peeve. Most people just say it to show off on how they can speak bigger words, but I actually know the meaning and even sometimes use it in a conversation normally and casually.
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 fluently speak multiple languages, and it's so annoying when people think they know what they are saying, but it means a different thing entirely.
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
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.
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!
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.
Once I went to a shop and at the self serve someone smelt absolutely awful. It smelt like a sweaty trucker who rolled in farts and dead bodies.
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.
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.
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 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 only big dogs, small ones, too! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE dogs, but really, not everyone wants a dog jumping around them. Whenever I'm at Babybeach (A beach on Maui, my home) I sit in the sand and build sandcastles. Whenever someone's dog walks right through the Warriors (warriorcats, an awesome book series about cats) camp I made, I always have to awkwardly convince the owner that it's alright, and I can always fix it. I feel bad that the owner has to take the blame for what the dog did, which wasn't even its fault? I mean, how is it supposed to know that I'm working on something? I know that's not a good example, because NOBODY'S dog is leashed at Babybeach, but it is one of my peeves
I couldn't agree more. It erks the hell out of me when Dog owners allow their dogs to jump on you and then talk to them like a human... And say things like "no jumping not everyone likes dogs"... Just tug on their leash or keep them close to you when you see people coming. It's so inconsiderate to assume everyone wants a dog jumping around and sniffing on them.
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.
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!
Super annoying but for me also super scary.
My bossy leader threatened to punch me if I didn't do as she said.
And this was in 3rd grade by the way.
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.
THE EXACT DEFINITION OF THE POINT GUARD ON MY BASKETBALL TEAM!
Sorry for the caps but she’s SO ANNOYING! All she does is yell at everyone and bring them down! Like what kind of a leader are you? You are not the center of the universe so get over yourself and start admitting when you make mistakes and stop yelling at your teammates all the time! to be honest our whole team plays better without her. Can she just move away or something?
Sorry for rage but she just gets on my nerves so bad.
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 just hate it when someone compares you to other people without knowing the real story.
More so negatively then positively but both.
