    <Most of my bugaboos are grammatical:

    • Writing “i.e.” when you mean “e.g.”  Look it up.
    • Your welcome
    • Using “he and I” or “she and I” in every context rather than “him and me” or “her and me” when appropriate (e.g., as the object of a preposition). >>

    Good ones.

    Add one that is epidemic – it’s (which ALWAYS means IT IS) for its (the possessive)

    Okay I get pissed off with some things like animals and my car, but they are like that naturally so theres nothing to do. However to animals like deer, chipmunks, possums, raccoons, and most especially you damn squirells; CHECK BOTH SIDES BEFORE YOU RUN ACROSS A STREET!!! My god its not that hard.

    Sides that most of my pet peeves come from people:

    – For one I really hate when either I’m driving or walking and I am stuck behind someone going very slow, and they keep going in both directions making it impossible to go around them. I had to deal with this in the high school halls as well back then,

    – Men who sit and talk about the girls they sleep with. For one you are not making yourself sound like a studmuffin or a player or anything, but more of a douchebag and a slut. Even though half the time they are most likely making it up.

    – One of my weirdest pet peeves and I really have no idea why, is it really pisses me off when guys joke around that they are pregnant. Its not even cute or funny, just retarded.

    – How people think alcohol is the best thing in the world, and how you can’t have fun without it. My fucking God, are you kidding me?

    – People more specifically girls who sit and bitch about their problems with what they do or don’t have. My god people really need to count their blessings and be grateful for what they have, I always remind myself that looking at the poverty and sin in the world.

    – People who sit and act like their opinion is much more superior to others and is the “right” one. Most especially these satanic churches who make up stories about how homosexuality is a moral sin.  

    – And most of all, Idk why we live in such a world with violence and hate. My god unless you are possessed by Satan and demons, there is absolutely NO excuse to hurt anyone (murder, bullying, stealing, rape, screwing over, attacking…ext.) People should know what is right and what is wrong, and should definitely teach that to their kids so they can grow up and learn that. Most especially it is inhuman to judge an individual by their race, sexuality, handicap.

    My major pet peeve is people who whine and complain a lot.

    Typing a word on a message board and following it with “(sp?)”.  Whether you’re on a desktop, laptop or handheld device, you obviously have internet access!  Look it up!

     

    Just to clarify in case someone misunderstands:  My issue is not with the misspelling itself.  I have no problem if someone makes an honest mistake or doesn’t write English as his/her primary language or even believes that the spelling is correct.  It’s the writer’s consciousness of a possible error and attitude that “I might have made a mistake but what I have to say is so important for the world to read that I’m not going to take the time to check” that annoys me.

    I hate when I’m driving and the people in the car next to me look over at me…then look back.

    Hmm….. I have a lot of those.

    -I hate when this one person text messages me or talks to me on Facebook, someone who I don’t like or someone who just assumes I have nothing better to do, and then when I try and ask such hard-hitting questions as “How are you?” and I have to read about how their life is, and I have to think to myself “Why don’t I just leave?”

    -Various logical fallacies.

    -Sour milk.

    -Asking someone “How are you?” only for them to proceed to tell me how much they hate their lives, and putting up with their negativity.

    -My friends trying to get me to watch porn with them. My dad does something where he tries to get me to do P90X with him, but neither are things I am particularly fond of, so why would I do it with either? In either case, it’s just a big, sweaty, uncomfortable mess. It’s especially damning when you try and tell your friend that you don’t want to, and then his dad pops in right when the blonde is telling the guy all about the pain she’s gonna love experiencing because of his commendable genitalia.

    -When I’m visiting my dad’s and my four year-old sister uses me as a jungle gym, which wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t spend a third of the time trying to stick her head into my crotch.

    -Being asked how many wives I’ve got. It’s interesting because it’s usually the first thing people ask me upon learning that I’m Mormon. The way people ask it, they think they’re the first people to come up with such a stupid question, and you’ll know the difference between people asking it sincerely or not. 

    -Small talk.

    -Having people hold up their hands and asking me “How many fingers am I holding up?” I don’t mind being legally blind, but I thought this would have ended a LONG time ago.

    -I once had a frog that my uncle named Peeves. Clever enough, I guess.

    -The fact that this website does not have spell check. 

    -When someone tries to overstate the value of something they like. I deal with a lot of Mormon kids, and though I can admire many things involving how great BYU is or how 17 Miracles is the greatest film ever made, I get labled a heretic for prefering the University of Utah or believing that 17 Miracles is nothing more than a boring, predictable, lame mess. Sorry kids, but Santa is a Ute, and if BYU was really the Lord’s school or if he cared about your stupid football team, he wouldn’t let U of U rape you on your own turf. 

    -People telling me I don’t have albinism. Are you a dermatologist? Oh, you’re not? Well then piss off.  

    -People telling saying “You should be nicer to people.” Really? Maybe they shouldn’t have said something from a vein of douchebaggery or something that wasn’t constructed by a mental retard. 

    -People touching my things without asking. Get you’re germy fingers off of that guitar. You play like a fish, and you’re holding it wrong.

    -Most days, despite the less than pleasant weather, I walk five miles from school to my home, for various reasons. Anyhow, sometimes I get sad or whatever, and so I make a point of visiting a small park that’s on the way home, and swing on the swings, usually listening to either Sufjan Stevens’ “Holland” or Fleet Foxes’ “Grown Ocean.” Depends on the mood. Every once in a while, some group of kids will have the right to exist in the same area that I want to purge my bad moods in. I mentally condemn them for their presence and then flounder in my growing discontentment and my newly hatched anger. “I hope a bomb falls on that swing set.” or something along those lines enters my mind. That will teach them. Yes, it’s horrible, but so am I.   

    -Hearing about the sex lives of my peers. No, I’ve not done the dance with no pants with anyone yet. So what? I’m not fascinated by your laughable stoires.

    I confess to being a crotchety sort; many of the things which others mention here push my buttons as well.  Here are a few more:

    Proselytism.  Yes, I have heard “the word” and am familiar with the general tenets of virtually every major world religion (and a number of less widespread cults as well); no, I do not care to listen to a pitch for whatever brand of crazy you’re selling.  Also, the use of ontological arguments in “support” of one’s religious beliefs…

    Pride in ignorance.  There was a time when people aspired to greater knowledge and held those who had worked to attain it in some esteem; today anti-intellectualism appears to be on the rise and it seems more and more people flaunt their ignorance as a badge of honor…

    Phone calls from people I don’t know.  There’s a reason my number is unpublished; if I am interested in purchasing your product or service I will seek it out on my own and, no, I am not interested in participating in your survey…

    People that spell common words incorrectly for no apparent reason, other than the fact that they lack education.

    People that can’t understand the difference between fiction and reality… For example, my brother can’t understand the difference between the setting of a TV show (E.g.: the fictional location of the series) and where the series is filmed.   My brother is 29 and to this day believes that “Friends” was “filmed” in New York).  He cannot comprehend the idea that a series is filmed on a soundstage in Los Angeles and that it’s fictional setting is not where a series is filmed.   

    People that use internet slang in everyday conversation; for example, when somebody says “OMG” or “LOL”.

    When I’m in the EXPRESS lane at the supermarket and the old lady in front of me has more than 12 items and proceeds to pay for them with every ounce of change she can find; that she of course must dig through her purse to find and then accurately count out 25 dollars in pennies and quarters.  Ironically, she will also get upset if the people behind her are impatient.

    In addition, I hate how some elderly people will CUT IN FRONT OF YOU at the supermarket or any store, without even asking… They just assume it’s okay.   I was once in-line in the supermarket, with my items on the belt, when this lady who must have been at least 70, walks right in front of me, basically pushing me aside and proceeds to push my items back and throws her things on the belt, pays, and then turns to me and says “Sorry, I’m old, I can’t stand in line.”      Meanwhile, If I cut in front of somebody I’m told it’s rude!

    And my last one, I REALLY HATE when my family tells me “to respect my elders”, I’m sorry, but to me, you earn respect, and jsut because somebody happens to be older doesn’t mean they aren’t a total ignorant jerk.    I have so many uncles who are just hot-headed, republican nut-jobs that I have no respect for them, but I’m always told “you must pay your respect to them.”    Meanwhile they’ll come to our house and proceed to lecture me for an hour about how I’m going to hell because I’m gay and how my life is shameful, and yet, I’m supposed respect them?

    Well, last week i started to write one… but it didnt work out…. thanks God, cause i was really angry to somepeople.

    Well, I cant stand people who think “EDUCATION/TEACHING” is just a job. It goes for politicians, parents, students and colleagues.  
    The three first group of people get on my nerves easily. They dont respect our job. They simply think that we come and do nothing. Well, I take very seriously my job. I think a teacher is not one who is hear to teach you mathematics (in my case) but also to help you to learn how to learn. That is my goal. MAths are important, but it is more important that you learn how to deal with them. 
    Anyway, some parents think that we dont do anything. THey really think that we only work the time we are in the lecture room. Well, sorry folks, but we work a lot more. For each leasson, i need at least one hour for preparation. Looking for exercises… then we asked our students to do homework… and we have to correct them and give them back to them (is it that english?) An then exams… evaluations, and teachers meeting….I was sick for 3 weeks. I didnt go to work… and the first thing a student asked me… “Why did i get a D-?”, my answered was simply. “Yep, i feel now much better, thanks for asking me how i feel after been 1 week at the hospital”

    And of course my colleagues… some of them complained that i took so seriously education. I am not a great teacher… My students complain about me being very theorical… but at least i work hard for them. So I get on my nerves when some of my colleagues in a meeting ask about what they will get if they do this and that… It may help your students to learn easily…
    I have this jerk at the office… he is always asking and asking…”My timetable is bad…” always, always complaining… but when they need him to do some extra work… he is saying, what will i get for it? First is his interest… and then, his students…

    I think people who doesnt love “teaching” should be banned from education… It is such a huge difference between those who love being teaching and those who just think is a job… 

    And one last thing for today… I hate people who is not grateful… I dont like that people who are only to get and get and when you need something from them, they are not there. And when you say “no” they call you selfish and you are the bad one…

    If you list spelling errors as a pet peeve one should make sure their post does not contain spelling errors.

    When somebody responds to your question by responding with an answer that is the exact opposite of what you asked…
