Pet Peeves - What Bugs You? (non Political Thread)

A simple thread on the day to day things you see and encounter that bug you. Not big things, just two or three (four, five?   ) of the little things you see that annoy you.

For me I'll throw out:

Trailer hitches that are removable but that people never remove. There is a reason they are removable folks (primarily because it is illegal to have anything extend beyond your bumper, but that beside the point), they are not supposed to be there permanently, you can put them on when you are going to tow something.

and

People who always have their blu-tooth headset on their ear. It's like it is some kind of necessity or fashion accessory! At dinner with families, at church, everywhere. Will you please remove it when you aren't using it and just be a human being? You can put back if you get/make a call.

(Apparently I have an issue with temporary vs permanent things. This will make my therapy much easier!    )

So what bugs you?

Well I'm a little bit OCD about a few things (such as in the UK almost every socket has an on/off switch and if it's on with no plug in, I have to switch it off, there are a few other things, such as leaving the TV volume on a multiple of 5)

But the big things that annoy me are:

1) Loud ignorant people that are normally incredibly opinionated and don't realise how offensive they are

2) Chavs (if you're British, you'll understand this!) - I live near Blackpool, that's one of the most chavtastic places on earth

3) Twitter unfollowers (sounds petty but I'm a twitter addict and well it annoys me when I see my follower number drop!)

There was a time when people had to know how to read a map. Then the internets came, and all they hads to do was type in their origin and destination, and it would tell them how to get there. Then, with GPS, now people wind up turning their butts onto railroad tracks because the thing says "turn right" and they can't pull their head out of their ass long enough to actually see where they're turning.

I use a sat nav from time to time, and I've never done any of those things. There is no need to drive recklessly when using a sat nav. That's why you're supposed to set it up before you start moving.

- People who grab the last seat on the train ahead of those who've already been standing for a much longer time. That ticks me off. I mean really, I was on the train long before you were. Wait your turn.

- OFFICE WHISTLING! This drives me MAD!!!!! Seriously, go outside and do it if you must. Is it some sort of "brogrammer" (that's not a typo - that's a real term) code of conduct that you must walk around the office whistling and clicking your fingers? It's seriously distracting and very bad etiquette. It's even worse when they are loud and you are on the phone, hence you must interrupt your phone call to ask them to be quiet.

- And on that note, people conducting loud meetings at their desks. Book a meeting room and use that. We want peace and quiet to do our work without being distracted by your meeting.

Fine and good but when you live in a place (Toronto) where the highway morons have designed the right lane to END as it becomes the off ramp. Yes, that's correct.... unless you keep moving lanes to the left you'll find yourself off the highway. Just plain DUMB DESIGN!

Remember Prinze von Anhalt. also Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Stodden, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown and the Kardashians.

Slow drivers on the damn road.

Red light stops at every intersection.

Schools with out of control zero-tolerance policies. What used to send you to the principles or VP's office ten or fifteen years ago now sends you to police station with "little hand-cuffs" on. How about those no hugging policies between students...and yet ignore persistent bulling as "boys will be boys". Kids spend six-seven hours at school lets make it about learning and sensible companionship not about sterility and punishment.

Sales calls.

Store solicitors. Half of them seem like shysters. I have seen people who say save the Congolese children in one week and the next week the same people say save the women in India from dowry deaths. One guy smelt like pot, some of the solicitors wear sunglasses.

Texting and calling on the cell phone while driving, I still see it all the time.

I have an infinite number of pet peeves, not many of which I encounter on a daily basis though. But here's the few that I could think of:

1. People that write "common" when saying "come on". Are these people so oblivious that they don't realize that "common" is actually a word in the English language that is in no way synonymous with "come on"?! I call my friends out on this all the time, and they get mad at ME for correcting their butchering of their native tongue.

2. Teenage kids (or even guys in their 20s) who think they're "gangsta" and act like they're "from the hood" when I know for a fact they were raised by a normal, middle-class family in the suburbs. I don't know who they think they're fooling, it's clearly nobody important. Enjoy your career at KFC fellas.

3. Groups of friends that walk down the hallways of my university side-by-side, taking up the entire width, slowly, so that nobody can pass. Why don't people have places to go?! I wish I had the time while at school to just lazily walk around campus side-by-side with my friends. I've been there for four, going on five, years and I'm very close to finally snapping and punching one of them in the back of the head.

I think I posted this in a similar thread a few months ago:

Voice mail greetings -
Person: Hi, you've reached so and so, the such and such manager at this or that company. I'm not able to answer the phone right now, so if you would please leave your name, number and a brief message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Computer: Please leave a message after the tone. When you are finished recording, you can hang up, or press 1 for more options.



First off, I know you're not able to answer the phone, that's why I got your voice mail. Second, I think everybody who has ever used a phone before knows how to leave a message, so there's no need to explain in an overly-long greeting exactly what information I'm supposed to include in my voice mail. Third, WHO THE HELL EVER PRESSES 1 FOR MORE OPTIONS? Why does every damn voice mail now have to include an hour-long computer greeting telling us how to leave a message, after the hour-long human greeting telling us how to leave a message?

My main gripe is bad spelling and poor grammar. The worst one for me has to be "I could care less", it is exactly the opposite to what you're trying to get across. You should be saying "I couldN'T care less".

But apart from that; bad drivers, loud people, poor manners, and "banter".

Oooh and, people who think that you should automatically give them respect (this invariably applies to older people, who some reason, think being old is excuse enough to lord it over everyone else). Respect is earned my friend, not given.

Edit; and pensioners who feel the need to go shopping in Tesco's on the weekend even though it's the busiest time of the week... You've got all bloody week to go, why don't you come on a Tuesday afternoon when nobody is around?

And people who rush to get infront of you then walk as slow as a bleeding funeral procession.

And, breathe.

Restaurants and other places with widescreen TVs which show everything in stretch mode. Don't they know how to set it in the correct format? Some hotel rooms have widescreen TVs with no way to change the format. I don't want to see the people looking squashed and fat, especially if it features a beautiful actress. The 3 usual formats are 4:3, letterbox, and anamorphic. What's so difficult about that?

Stupid, common grammar errors. I mean, I'm not perfect, but pay attention. You seem like an idiot when you can't tell the difference between there, their and they're or your and you're.

To a lesser extent, spelling. Especially on something that is published for the world to read. Heck, I just read a description for a product that is designed to interpret a code, but the description read 'interrupt'. And, you want me to buy your product?

Oh yeah, doctors that think they know my body and how to interpret my symptoms better than me. I know it's a cold. I know you can't do anything about the cold. But, I need something for the cough (and I hate to tell you, but the OTC stuff doesn't touch my cough), so I can sleep and you may as well prescribe the steroids for later because the damn cough won't go away and I don't want to have to come for another visit and waste your time. Every freaking year it's the same thing...with the same Doc. But, otherwise, he's cool.

Sorry, one more thing...stupid pop-up surveys just like the one that just popped up on the screen.
