Pet Peeves

Recommended Posts

An amusing one, but it still mildly annoying. When people writing about some famous person or other on the red carpet say she was "Rocking a red lip", my first thought is always "Just one? what happened to the other one?" It's cutesy and I dislike cutesy.

I'd be more peeved to realise that I had NO idea what that MEANS !

This is usually done for their own safety, actually. Cars usually don't give bikers space in the shoulder (which can get rather narrow) and cars driving 4x faster than you can go on the bike right next to you is rather frightening. As well, shoulders and curbs aren't often upkept and can be uneven and full of potholes, making the bike ride harder and more uncomfortable, forcing the biker into the road anyway - and not always in a controlled manner. Better to slow some cars down than be run over by one.

Having to pass the same bike over and over again after every single traffic light makes it safer for them? blink.gif I don't think so.

When people text while behind a wheel and on the road. I just almost got hit by a truck because the driver was doing exactly that. Had I not seen them coming I could be dead. Seriously people, stop texting while driving.

Same here!

They made it illegal here. I think it is a misdemeanor now. I wish more people would get pulled over for it. It's scary, I've nearly been hit multiple times- when I look over the other driver's head is down looking at their phone. Great...

Seriously, you shouldn't use your phone at all while driving. It's illegal here too but people still do it all the time.

If it's really an emergency then pull over!

People who swear in essentially every (other) sentence. I know, freedom of speech and whatnot, but it makes me really uncomfortable when someone's every fourth word is the f-bomb.

So true! People with dirty mouths. Makes me want to wash their mouths with soap.

Yeah, though with me it always me wonder what it says about the rest of their vocabulary if they have to resort to those words SO often to express themselves.

When people judge Person A negatively when Person A is helping others. Those people that say that Person A is just helping because she has personal interests, would gain something for herself and isn't really interested for the person she is helping, when I can clearly see that she is sincere.

My cats opening the living room door (or any other doors of my house) and entering the room looking smug. Guys, if you can open the door you might want to learn to close it as well!

I hear you on that one! That kind of bad judging is what makes people stop helping eventually sad.gif

Now I'm looking smug, too. My cat has learned to open exactly ONE door - she could just push it open by pressing against a certain spot near the bottom because the door's framing box (is that the word?) didn't fit well around the door. Now she cannot figure out how to open any *other* door because she's always trying to open them like the first one. laugh.gif

People who say "like"at the beginning of each sentence.

People who write @ instead of "at".

People who hang their Christmas decorations before December even starts.

People who patronize you when you're in a rotten mood, even after you've told them explicitly you want to be left alone.

People who use their phones during a movie or class presentation and then ask stupid questions ABOUT the movie or class presentation.

The arse across the street. He's all of the above.

tongue.gif Oh, I would apologise to you for that one. Good thing you don't live where I do. People here hang deco as early as October. It's embedded already in our culture. The -ber months is the start of Christmas here but it still annoys me when they play Christmas songs in the train station as early as September.

 

Anyway, we don't hang Christmas deco at home.

-People who constantly forces their views on someone else and speaks of other views as delusional trash.

-People who hates someone else for no reason.

-When I forget a lot of stuff, like returning someone's ruler mad.gif

People who talk in stupid racist voices all the time (AKA my classmates). Seriously, it's offensive and annoying, cut it out dry.gif

Lucky you! laugh.gif

I'm in the unfortunate situation that our living room door has no lock. (The rooms upstairs - future rooms for children(?), training rooms(?) - all have locks)

 

Both of my cats - especially the red one, the black one lets the red cat or me do the work most of the time - stand on their hind legs or graciously jump & push the door handle down. Since both of them follow me everywhere I go I usually only have to wait for a few moments until I hear the door getting opened. During spring/summer it's not a problem, but now that it's cold all the cold from the entrance area comes in so we (try to) keep the door shut.

 

(My red cat is a specialist, nothing is safe from him - be it doors, sliding doors or closets...he needs to make sure he has access to all areas and never closes anything afterwards, but that's why he keeps humans as pets, right? xd.png )

I get really annoyed when pants, usually leggings, have no way to tell which way is front. I worry that I'll wear them a different way each time, and after 5 uses they'll be baggy on both sides.

Alright, it's a minor one, but

 

when people write "nebulas" instead of the proper plural term "nebulae" XD I was reminded of this when seeing people talk about the dragons. :U ahh it's just a wee bit irksome, but it's understandable. It's a weird word that doesn't follow the normal rules of English!

 

The worst stuff is the classic you're vs your, etc. All of those. I suppose contractions in general are annoying when improperly used. XD I forgive those who aren't all too fluent in English but I really think it's a sign of ignorance and laziness when someone who is native and has been in school and around this stuff for YEARS to make those errors outside of occasional mistakes.
