Have to agree with this one - and especially when you know you have to take what they're saying with a HUGE pinch of salt.

Here's my pet peeve and it's getting stronger every day:

Why, when I'm trying to watch a TV show, am I subjected to the totally inane pop-ups advertising a show that's coming on today, tomorrow, next week? It blocks out half the screen and the movements and antics are very annoying. Almost as much as that constant news roll across the bottom of the screen. It's very distracting.
There! Now I feel better.

Here's one I hate when there is a bowl of mixed nuts and people that fish through the bowl to get the cashews and pecans and leave the peanuts and almonds for everyone else after they put their filthy paws all over the nuts. So selfish. However if all you have is a bowl of peanuts they will happily eat those.

I hate when you set the volume on the TV and a commercial comes on blasting the volume way up. This really annoys me to no end I need a TV that keeps the volume at a normal level.

i hate it when people are late. do me the courtesy of showing up on time. some reasons why you are late maybe ok. at least phone and say you will be late.

Mine lately is people send forward emails without deleting all the others that forwarded to - like chain letter. I received an email that if i printed it out it would of been 8 pages and on the 8 page would of been the joke or picture.

Also if they don't delete all the others, you just passing out your emails and friend and family to the world by the time it gets around.

As I have said before I hate the email chain letters where they say if you don't forward to at least 5 people you will get bad luck but if you forward you will have many good things happen to you. I delete them right then and there. What a bunch of bull so annoying.

I hae wn someone else causes me to be late to something, if I am ready to leave for something plenty early enough yet the person I am going with takes their sweet time....


I also hate when someone puts you on hold to answer another call and they end up talking to them for 5 plus minutes and not bother clicking back to say they will call you back! Grrrrrrr
