    One of mine is when I hear a person say, in an every day conversation somethign from the language of chat speak--and not just say it, but dramatically.

    For example, when in Drivers Ed last year there was this stupid girl who'd always stop and scream "O...M...Gee" when her stupid little friend would continue her constant story of on going boyfriend drama between turns behind the wheel.

    Another of mines is when people stick their feet out the window when they drive. Each time I see that I wish ardently for a hatchet...

    Oh, and another pet peeve of mine is constant gum popping, valley girl type behavior. Its like some people go to school for some stereotypes--whats worse is they will always, in my limited experience, swear up and down I20 that they
    So, anyway, those are just a few. I'm sure I will come back here often to list more and more of them as people pet my peeves with their annoying behaviour. In the meantime, someone else come and post about your pet peeves eh? Hopefully we can all sympathize (and maybe bicker a little if we have habits that are others pet-peeves) together.

    People that use chat-speak irl. "OMG!!! That was hwk?!" Ugh.
    When we're gonna cross the street (on foot) and the car quickly turns, my sister always yells "coulda waited" like they could actually hear.
    Music loud enough to make things vibrate
    Mini bikes. Loud.
    Go karts. Loud
    Idiot neighbor's car: REEVVVV!!! REVVVVV!!! REVVVVV!!! stop REVVVVVV! I want to smash their car to pieces
    Kids that think they matter (Student "council" (they just act like bouncers for dances and make signs for events), PE leaders, etc)
    Drug addicts.
    Mortgage crisis. "I'm the victim! It's not my fault I don't know what adjustable means, it's Bush's!"

    And many, many more.

    Right about...here.
    Seatmates for druggies...>_> They're always talking about the same old thing day by day. Yes, we know you have chicks you can have smex with a dial away. Yes, you're going to die of overdose someday. Yes, no one really cares...

    But I'm not sure if that actually qualifies as a pet peeve. More of nuisance, actually.

    People who swear for the sake of swearing. What are you? Some kind of rapper wanna-be? Or are you just too stupid to make up insults of your own?

    People who like to say OMG a lot. For a different reason though...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Grammatically incorrect sentences and whatnot. I'm a grammar freak so it really pisses me off when I see so many mistakes on the screen. Sadly, this does not make me invulnerable to making grammar mistakes.

    People making out in public...although this embarrasses me more.

    Know-it-alls who think they can do anything. [​IMG] Honestly...no one is perfect you know. (Although admittedly...there are a few that don't piss me off...>_>)

    Emo wanna-bes. Because.

    Kids who think that everyone in the shopping centre wants to hear the crappy, tinny music blaring out of their mobile phones.

    Buy headphones, kids. FFS.

    Whenever people incorrectly use weeaboo.
    When Anonymous kids do things IRL or on message boards outside of *chan.
    Random loud noises, like car horns etc.
    People who drive and don't obey all of the laws that are essential to everyone's safety.

    ^^^

    That. Oh so much.

    Let kids be kids, for crying out loud! They got pleanty of time (and choice of their own!) to be all grown up, wearing make up, clothes to attract male attention.

    You're only a kid for a short while, and it flies by. Before you know it you're having to get jobs, and pay bills and whine about debt.

    A lot of kids these days have no innocence about them. Really doesn't make my opinion high of parents of said kids.
