The Pet Peeve Thread.

Post by Donomni » Wed Nov 02, 2005 5:09 pm

Simple question, answers of varying length.

What really ticks you off in your life?

For me, it's the sheer amount of disrespect people seem to have for one another. It's one thing to hate a person because of a valid reason, but just because you care for nobody but yourself? Give people a chance, dammit! :evil:

Maybe I listened to my family too well, but that really pisses me off.

People who spell wookiee with one e, people who type "must of" instead of "must've" or "must have," people who spell retarded as "retarted" and ridiculous as "rediculous."

People that chew as loud as a person possible could, and ever worse, those same people that try to carry on a conversation while they're chewing.
It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. --Adam Smith

That everyone lives and wishes to live primarily for himself does not disturb social life but promotes it, for the higher fulfillment of the individuals life is possible only in and through society. --Ludwig von Mises

Stupid people.

Cold weather.

Thing that don't work for any obvious reason.

People not making sense.

People who don't follow logic when explaining things.

Drivers who either stop unexpectedly, get too close to me, or dither after stopping.

Thugs.

Bad spelling/grammar.

The way my cats know EXACTLY what they want, but can't communicate it in any readable form.

Times when there's nothing on TV.

Dirty/wet/steamed-up glasses.

Not being able to distinguish between the two layers of T-shirts I'm wearing when trying to clean my glasses.

Rain.

Ice.

Gravel paths.

Huge sig images.

Badly-maintained engines.

Wet roads.

Muddy paths.

Lack of grip.

People that generalize large groups so they can bash them, after having experience with only a very tiny minority of people.

I've never seen you drive, so I can't say weather or not you're a bad driver.

I guess when I say "people who can't drive" is kind of genearlized. It's differen't if you're a new driver, or if you're just having a bad day and hit a curb or something. It's the people who have been driving for years who do stupid shit, like talking on a cell phone, making out with your whatever you have, or just sit there like a 'tard doing nothing when the light turns green.

Driving is not hard. Yet so many people make it so difficult...

I'm terrible, but I haven't been driving long. My mom's afraid to let me go anywhere by myself, but now that I have my dad's car to myself for a week... watch out Southern Califonria.

Naive, bubble-headed optimists who walk around vomiting sunshine.
