Really, really annoys me, that.

Oh, and then idiots who put cold water in my sizzling hot teflon frying pans.

That pees me off no end.
Do you run some sort of hostel service?

In a nutshell it's people who are so distracted and self absorbed they act nearly brain dead.

Just a few cases:

grocery cart isle hogs....that's huge!

cell phone and texting drivers....Duh!

bad drivers in general

people who talk way too much

In all the truth, I never completely understood what the "pet peeves" really means, I mean the term it self. But from reading your responces I take it it means things a person doesn't like, right? Where does the term come from then?

Well I have so many, I cannot begin to tell you.

People who act like the grasshopper in Aesop's fable.

People who blame everything on someone else. They are usually big complainers too.

I have a whole herd of pet peeves and you have already listed most of them.

People who insist on talking with a mouth full of food or those that chomp away like a wild beast of some sort.

People who repeat every word I say. I am not sure if they do this to buy some time to think or what but, it makes me crazy!

The older I get the more time I spend alone and the more people in general annoy me! If only they would all make an effort to be more like me!

I'm sure a lot of people would be improved by trying to be more like you.

The TV first thing in the morning...I never turn it on, someone ELSE does.

Biggest Pet peeve, people who try to talk to me before I am awake.

A spare universal remote similar to the one in Grumpy Old Men might work!

Although it could stimulate some spirited conversation before you are fully awake!
