Do Tell: Pet Peeve

No one is perfect; we all have imperfections, and whether or not we realize it, others notice. Does the way your boyfriend brush his teeth get under your skin? Or do your best friend's table manners make you cringe? I happen to hate when other people's hair touches me, strange I know, so do tell, what is your biggest pet peeve?

When people are late and they don't call to let you know. I'm not talking about 5 or even 30 minutes. I mean hour, hours..... It drives me nuts!

when people do not take buggies back to the buggy return area. Its just laziness. Take it back!!!!! Stop being lazy!!!! Also, people who can't control their kids ESPECIALLY in resturants.

LOL guys. I hate it when customers throw the money on the counter at the café I work at!!! What about a little compassion? If you have more, you should post them on Peeve Pile -- lots over there. ~ Nikki

My pet peeves are 1)DUMB the ones who cut your lane and go as slow as the guy that he didnt want to follow...... 2)people with no manners or sense of cleanliness...such as while riding the public train and he/she coughs with one hand to cover their mouth then right after uses that same hand to hold a pole!! GROSS...also when the train is packed like a sardine can and someone next to you yawns without covering their mouth and you smell their rank morning breath! EEWWWW! 3)people who leave the toothpaste cap off/open and people who dont wash off the toothpaste gunk off the tube so when the next person uses the toothpaste, their hand gets sticky and covered in the leftover paste from the previous person(s)

I said that because i had to spend an hour listening to someone bitching about her life! I was prepared for it though.

my peeve for today is when somebody starts complaining about everything man..Goodness me..why???? Is life that difficult to tackle? If it is then find a strategy to cope but quit moaning about everything. If someone or something bothers you so much just leave the situation. Look on the bright side of life for a change! Life isn't that terrible if you know how to live it.

The pet peeve I can think about for right now is: When people hold one side of their nostril and blow their nose. No tissue..just blow it all out on the street. Gross.

when i open a glass door and the person on the other side hurrys to step through it before it do (especially when the door is double and they could just open the other one). seriously, yesterday i went to the video store with my youngest and this happened. i was holding her hand with my left hand and opening the door with my right hand and the woman pushed my 6 year old out of the way to try and get through the door before it colsed! i was standing there holding it and just let it fall into my back and she was literally refusing to move. i said "excuse me" and she looked so puzzled and said "i'm trying to get out". well stupid bitch use the other door or wait till i come through! this drives me nuts and i have noticed that teens and women in their early 20's are the worst about it. maybe use to their parents opening the doors for them or something, i don't know but super ANNOYING!

all very good comments, and I agree with most of them. I'd like to add that I hate when people show up at my house uninvited (I literally won't let them in until they call me from outside my door--that should teach them) and also when invited guests bring others with them w/o asking first. Honestly, I feel like it's such an invasion of my personal space and I get really offended. If I invite you over, fine, but don't invite other people to someone else's home. It's rude. Also, people who allow their children to misbehave in stores, screaming and running and pulling things off the shelves. If you can't teach your children to be well-mannered, how do you expect them to be conscientious adults? In fact, if you can't teach your children to be well mannered, why even bother letting them be seen in public? I feel like it's a reflection of their parenting skills also (I know there can be exceptions to this). But hey, haven't you guys seen the dog whisperer on south park? (hah I do that do my boyfriend occasionally to discourage bad behaviour). Ok, I think that covers the major ones, I feel better now.

My pet peeve is lack of simple manners. Holding the door for someone a few steps behind you, please and thank you. Those things go a long way. Whatever happened to simple courtesy?

Incompetence, people that block the whole aisle in the grocery store because they're on their cell phone, drunk people, and stoned people. I also hate it when people I don't know touch. Don't put your hand on my shoulder and don't touch my hair just because you want to know how curly it is.

Oh, and I agree with andaman. The whole getting really drunk for the sake of it really irritates me.
swwonder swwonder 10 years
When I hold the door for someone and they don't say thank you. Unnecessary swearing, like when it's every other word or just completely uncalled for and show offy. Oh and lateness.

i hate it when people dont' say please and thank you. i mean we all learned it when we were kids, is it too hard to say? i hate when people ask way too personal questions esp. if they just met me and don't even know me that well. i also hate people who are late and i hate seeing people with sloppy work uniforms. eewwwwww look presentable please.

You all are pointing really good ones out, especially cell phone etiquette. I do NOT approve of being on the cell phone while you are being helped at a store. I would be appalled if the person working there was on the phone, and just because we're the customer, it doesn't mean that rudeness doesn't apply to us. Also, part of the work I do relates to customer service. You are all right. Sometimes it's just a job for people and they don't do a wonderful job. And sometimes the meanest people ever call and just yell at our reps because they can't beat their kids or something and need to take it out on someone. Both are a pet peeve of mine for sure. And I totally hate it when I let someone in traffic and they can't muster a wave.

Another peeve I have is when nobody dares to speak out about bullying and racism at work.I have seen it happened often. I used to get so hot and bother about it. But I've learnt to deal with it a bit better now.

My #1 pet peeve is when people chew with their mouths open... Actually, now that I think about it, bad table manners drive me crazy.. loud chewers, swallowers, messy eaters, slurpers, elbows on tables, etc etc... Also, I find myself cringing whenever someone laughs through their noses, I can almost see the snot spraying all over the place and it grosses me out like no other :sick: ------- :star: :star: :star:

My pet peeve are people with no common sense, people who try to merge on the freeway at surface street speed, and like popgoestheworld said people who know the lane is merging but wait til the last friggin second to move over I think thats why traffic slows down so much

yay, yiddidea! i'm totally with you. i work in cust. service and while i HATE my job, i'm still nice and a "human on the other end of the line." HOWEVER, working with the general public is ROUGH. So rough. leading me to a second pet peeve. When talking to a cust. service rep, if you are upset, please do not take it to a personal level. I didn't do anything wrong and I'm trying to help!

another pet peeve - people who work in customer service jobs who have no desire AT ALL to give good customer service. God knows there are other people who would take their job in a second and actually do it right. I used to have to work crap jobs when I was younger too, but I did it to the best of my ability.
