Top 10 Biggest Pet Peeves

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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!

42 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

43 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.

44 Eyelash getting in your eye

Agree! It hurts way so much! - GirlyAnimeLover

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

45 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

46 People wearing their glasses in their hair

I don't get how this is annoying

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

47 Judgmental People

People that use "judge not" from the Bible, and can not even tell you what book, chapter or verse it is found in.

I just hate them. - LemonComputer

Well, well, well. Isn't this cute.

Someone in my family is judgemental and thinks any teen walking down the street is up to no good and thinks any male crossing the road is a drunk rapist. - Lunala

48 Irresponsible
49 When in a text message a person replies "lol"

How are you expected to keep a conversation going if they respond in "k" or "l.O.l". If I send someone a funny message and they respond with L.O.L I'm just like, "Well f*** you too then" because as we all know 99% of all L.O.Ls are said with with a straight face. One time this one girl actually said L.O.L when one of my friends said a joke. What's the point of that?! - Danielsun182

Don't forget the reply "K". Ugh stupid people!

Me: I just sent my friend a very long text! I hope she replies!

Friend's email: Hi Maya.

Me: what!

Yeah, sometimes people say something stupid and go LOLOLOLOLOL... So annoying! - RaccoonCartoon

50 Bad service at a restaurant

hate that or when they are in a horrible mood so they put it out on you

That is also one of my biggest pet peeve, especially when they looks down upon me and my family just because we are Deaf. I mean, just because we are Deaf doesn't mean they have the right to ignore us... We are human as everyone else are.

The way I see it, bad service means smaller or no tip. So at least you're spending less money. Regardless, bad service is still rather obnoxious.

We never go to Dairy Queen anymore because there was a really rude worker. - lovefrombadlands

51 Big dogs at the small dog park

You may think your dog is little but maybe it isnt. If your dogs head is bigger than some peoples entire dog, it should be playing with the big dogs and not the little dogs. Certain exceptions could apply such as sick or senior dogs, but you know who you are. - mydawgz

I have to go cancel a babysitting job... Apparently I can't be spending time with people smaller than me. Like what?! Dogs can go wherever the hell they'd like!

There's a difference between a civilised human whom doesn't eat midgets and huge dogs that are constantly eating smaller dogs. - LemonComputer

I hate this too, good point!

It's a DOG park. Big or not, it's still a dog so stfu.

I guess I have to cancel a babysitting job now... I can't spend time with people smaller than me. Like what?! DOGS CAN GO WHEREVER THE HELL THEY'd LIKE!

52 Men wearing a baseball cap in a restaurant

Do you seriously get annoyed by insignificant things that other people do? Just don't look at them if you don't like that they're wearing a hat.

I wouldn't mind people doing that if I were at buffalo wild wings, but at a fancy restaurant, then it's a problem

So - madoog

You can wear what you want when you want. I'd happily show up to a posh resturant in a pink tutu with a horse head mask, with poo emoji slippers, and a shirt saying "Shrek is love Shrek is life" - Lunala

53 Not washing dirty hands

You must wash your hands every time you come out the bathroom - Adventurur2

54 Parking a car across two spaces

Or when people box your car just because you're parking in "their" space. That space is allowed to be used for any car, not just yours! Just stop having a bad attitude about someone parking in a space that you want to, ass! - LemonComputer

Very inconsiderate. Since my car is a hunk of junk any way, this always prompts me to park as close to them as I can.

55 When people have to have things their way or no way.

Act like brats - Adventurur2

My sister does this 24/7. - RaccoonCartoon

56 Nuisance yappy or barking dogs

The worst is when the owner NEVER gets them to be quiet or even realizes their dog is barking. don't GET A DOG THEN. I calmed my dog down and brought him inside, be a normal human and do the same, THANKS!

I'm sorry that a dog's only method of verbally communicating has offended you.

Well, if the dog is trying to tell you something, then that's different. But if it's barking at anything that moves, then yes. For some reason, larger dogs don't bug me as much when they're barking... It's YAPPING little Chuiauias (sorry, I keep forgetting how to spell chuiauias, but cut me some slack, I'm 11). I don't want to offend any Chui-lovers (short for chuiauias, however it's spelled), but really, if you treat your dog like a little princess sweetie, that's when it becomes annoying. People who let their dogs bark and do nothing about it, THAT'S when it becomes annoying to the public... By the way, I LOVE dogs, but I am mostly a cat person.

At my bus stop, there are always the same three yards with dogs barking at me from across the street. It's super annoying. - Popsicles

57 When people get their belly button pierced

Waste of money. - RaccoonCartoon

It looks ugly and costs money so why would you do it? And don't "well it looks good on some people" me. It looks good on NO ONE! Same thing with nose piercings.

Chillax. I'm planning to get a belly button ring. To me, it looks quite good. The nose looks bad.
Look, it's my body, not yours, so I do what I want with it. - redhawk766

58 When people argue in public

Once I was at Friendly's and some mother starts yelling at her little boy. She even brings him to the front of the restaurant and puts him in a chair, in the corner and gives him a time out. Even my grandma was angry as hell when it was happening - kaitlynrad11

When you're arguing in public, don't even do that honestly, at least find a quieter place to have your discussion or after your done whatever you were trying to get done, argue at home, rather than yelling in a mall full of people that can hear you. No one needs to hear what your fighting about. That's just.. not the best vibe.

Once I saw a dad swear at her daughter in public and it rattle me a lot. - Lunala

59 People who write R.I.P.... give respect and write rest in peace

How is it disrespectful to write/type in abbreviations? RIP and Rest In Peace both gives the EXACT same message! - LemonComputer

Hey, even most tombstones has R.I.P okay? - GirlyAnimeLover

It's the same thing. It's just as respectful as Rest In Peace. - redhawk766

60 Nose picking

My dad does this all the time. He rolls up the boogers and then eats them. I've called him on it and he has threatened to slap me in the face. It's disgusting! Almost as disgusting as his coming home late at night drunk and waking us all up barfing in the bathroom closest to our bedrooms.

It is the most disgusting practice I have ever come across

I used to pick my nose, until I found out what boogers are made of. If you really want to know, they're dust and other things that gather on your nosehairs

Once a kid in my class did this. This is a gross habit - Lunala
