What is one pet peeve you have, that no matter how much you try to overlook it, still drives you up a wall everytime?

Everybody has something, what’s at the top of your list?

    Lack of respect. I will never be able to get past this. Too many people have little to no respect for others, their rights, their property, earth, nature, and animals. I’m disgusted with the lack of respect in humans.

    If this doesn’t count as a pet peeve, this is the other biggest issue I have; people who never worked law enforcement, specifically in a prison, who don’t have a clue what it’s like running their mouths, bashing law enforcement, and acting like they know what they’re talking about.

    Both count, IMO. The world is a hard enough place, why then do we as a species work against our mutual benefit? Don’t get me started...

    That last part of your answer about “acting” describes a peeve of mine in every instance.

    I worked myself up answering this question. I was raised to be respectful and to appreciate what I have. This includes earth.

    When people pronounce the word "poinsettia" as "pointsetta". If you do that, you are an Idiot with a capital "I". I just...I can't even...I need to lie down...

    Can’t we just change the name? Win-win.

    I was listening to an interview with the Poet Laureate on NPR and she pronounced the word 'poem' 'pome'.

    Smoking a cigarette and the smoke it produces.

    I’m proud to say I have never smoked or chewed tobacco.

    ...and the nasty by-products: cigarette butts, grimey ashes, stink and, um, ...death.

    I was happy when my state banned smoking indoors in public places. Now if we can stop smokers from smoking in front of entrances.

    Most cities around here ban smoking within 25 feet of a public building, so it can be done!

    I yell at people who do this. It’s one thing for people to polute their own bodies, but I dont want to be exposed to second hand smoke.

    I made a typo. Do some of you have nothing better to do?

    Depends on how you define "better." Different folks have different pet peeves, which is what the question is about.

    Lots of educated people here who think proper lauguage skills are important.  Don't be offended.

    I’m not offended. It just irritates me when people have Tom correct every mistake. I made a typo. That doesn’t make me stupid. I’m typing on an iPad and the screen doesn’t keep pace with my fingers. This post was edited by Rizz at August 8, 2018 11:29 PM MDT
