What are your pet peeves?
You know, things you can't stand, that drive you crazy, etc.?
Please, only list things from Real Life (RL), NOT internet-related stupidity.

Some of mine:
- eggcrate. I can't stand to touch that cardboard-maché that egg cartons are made of. Makes me cringe.
- aspic. If you don't know what it is, keep it that way. Most horrendous substance ever conceived by man.
- cell phones with invisible headphones. It used to be that only genuinely demented persons would walk down the street, gesticulating wildly and blabbing at high volumes. Now, with those small button headphones, the streets are filled with raving lunatics, describing their every move with maximum verbosity.

hmmmmm... my pet peeves....

-People who constantly criticize, disrespect, and mistreat.
-My brother's constant hitting me.
-Extreme and inapropriate(sp?) voilence.

That's all I can think of right now.

Hypocrites? What's that?

I believe SC in this instance was referring to Starcraft- that's the most common acronym you'd hear for it around these here parts.

We're all amazed but not amused
By all the things that you said you'd do.
You're much concerned but not involved by
Decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song,
Telling us how you are going to change right from wrong,
'Cause if you really want to hear our views,
You haven't done nothin'.

- People who say things about me, on behalf of me, but which aren't true.
Even 'she was there and there, and did this, really', drives me absolutely nuts. People going on and on about 'yes, you did do that, and you did because of this' etc. Rage against them, raugh.
- My brother. And my sister. And my dad.. family, yup.
- Bugs.
- All those people who think my religion is a cult. It isn't.

- People who go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...
- People who can't answer yes or no questions with a simple "yes" or "no", but instead feel the need to give me a ten minute speech on the subject, semi-related subjects, and what the cat ate for breakfast.
- People who have lots of information available to them, and yet have no means of processing it, but don't know this.
- Backstabbers of any kind.

That just means they'll get killed because they were too stupid to realize what can kill them.

Hypocrite literally means actor. It's a little more complicated than that, but that's the centre of it. Try shouting that at mimes. It's a compliment.

I remember I used to tell people it meant 'rule of the horses.' I love improving vocabularies :P

Let the good times roll again

-Stupid people. They annoy me to no end. Please, no comments from the peanut gallery.
-Bad grammar. These fragments, obviously, are a special case.
-Fundamentalists.
-People touching me. One person, realizing this, got everyone who got off the bus at his stop to walk by and hit me in the back of the head. I especially hate that.
-People who repeat themselves too much.
-People who say words they don't know the meaning of.

- Spiders

- Rotten spelling (not slang, but spelling mistakes, like the following example: 'Rotenn spaling natslank but spalink misstaykz such as teh foloving eksamble')

- People who believe their opinion is correct just because it's theirs.

Oh yes, and Bush of course. :D

I think if you listen to rap you want rhythm, not a tune... and it's not all bad, just most.

Definitely

+ People who smoke and then blow or cough in my face.

+ Styrofoam. No, this one doesn't really make sense, but I hate the stuff.

+ People like me. Really, if I weren't me, I think I'd strangle myself and call it a service to humanity.

+ People who can't even acknowledge that they're doing anything wrong (or irritating), let alone try to fix the problem.

—Alorael, who supposes this last one doesn't count. It's not really a pet peeve, since it bothers just about everyone. It even bothers the perpetrator of the wrong or irritating act when everyone reacts to it.
