What peeves you?

what peeves me:
1.)fingernails on the chalkboard
2.)itching.
3.)computer problems.
4.)overly-self righteous people. i won't even get started on that one. let's just say that they annoy me to no end and i'd like to scream when i'm around one.
5.)can't say the last one. i'd get in big trouble for that.

1. The bottom of my feet and the palms of my hands being touch {yes I know, weird, but the feeling makes my nerves stand on end, I've had this problem since being young, it is up there with scratching on jeans and other grooved surfaces}

2. Smacking
3. Idiot drivers
4. Someone that is skinny talk about how fat they are

tee-hee, when i need to instill extreme guilt into my fiance, my favorite line is, 'oh, so apparantly you think i'm FAT!' even though, as you probably saw in my pictures, i'm quite skinny. it makes him more irate than anything else i say, even if i call him the worst of names.
you gotta keep those men on thier feet, i say!

I can't stand for my feet to be touched period!! It drives me insane. Especially if someone puts their fingers between my toes. I'm cringing just thinking about it!!


I don't really have too many peeves but the one thing that just makes me want to smack someone is when they talk about having no $ yet they go out to eat expensive dinners regularly & try to outdo thir neighbors by buying something their neighbor just bought only bigger & more expensive. That just iritates the heck out of me!!

People who don't keep to the right, and go thru the door on the left side.

People who don't stop at STOP signs.

People when stopped at a traffic light, stop 1, 2, 3 or more car lengths behind the car in front of them.

People who park in clearly, no parking spots, or no parking spaces at all.

People who won't turn because they can't get all the way over to 3 or 4 lanes, where they want to be.

Store employees talking on the phone(personal calls) while assisting a cutomer.

let's see...

I can't handle being late or having someone arrive late or if I'm having guests ( think my mother) I can't handle if they show up earlier than agreed on.
I get really upset if I make plans and the plans change (even if I'm the one the changes them)
and being lied to. I HATE being lied to.

I haven't had my coffee yet this morning so... I could go on and on and on.
but, I'll be nice and stop.

Let's see,

1-potato chip and ice crunching in my ear
2-gum snapping
drivers, who just have to cram in ahead of you to turn right, when they could do it one second later if they had stayed behind you!!!
3-parent, who wait til the last minute to drop off the kids at school, then stop dead in busy traffic and let those little guys out in the center of a busy street..
4-Anyone who asks me a question, I give the answer then they immediately try to change my mind
5-people who can't wait til you get out of an elevator before they almost knock you down trying to get on!
6-I'm one of those who when planning a party or dinner,always starts way ahead..and people who wait til the day before drive me to distraction..I could wring their necks
other than that I'm EASY

Must be tricky to shake hands with people if you have that kind of quirk. I'm surprised that two of you said that touching your feet bothers you so quickly. I like having my feet touched. Foot rubs are great. One of my cats likes to rub against my feet and I love the feeling of the soft fur against my skin.

I'm not quite sure about scratching on jeans either. Is it like scratching on a blackboard to you?

Hearing someone slurp cereal makes me cringe for some reason.

Hearing someone say 'um' 50 times during a phone conversation makes me want to jump right through the phone line to strangle them. Actually any repetetive word or phrase can get to me. My brother likes to use the phrase "I'm just sayin'..." and I have to bite my tongue about that every time we talk.

I know there are others, but those are two of my biggies.
