What are yours?

A few of mine:

People who use ideal or idear when they should use idea
Commercials that come on 80 decibels louder than the show they interrupted
The funky burnt smell you get when you turn on the furnace for the first time
Employees who don't take the initiative to do ANYTHING they see that needs to be done

My biggest pet peeve is that people have pet peeves.

and I just smelled that funky heater smell you are referring to about an hour ago.. toss that one in the list for me too.

Ohh and I hate people that decide to add something to a list at the drop of a hat for no reason at all.

they have a bill that comes into effect i think the first of the year dealing with the loud commercial issue..and people say congress has not done anything lately.. sheesh

People always busting ass in the barracks and in formation.

People constantly spitting.

Instructors who won't just leave me alone on the machine. Yes, I know I'm doing it wrong, but shifting my brain from muscle-memory mode to speech-mode so that you can tell me what I already know only makes it worse, so **** off, sir. It's like when you were being taught how to drive and someone's in the passenger seat telling you everything. OMG shut the **** up so I can focus on the machine and develop a feel for it. If I want to be around someone who talks way to much at the wrong times I'll get married again. ****.

Sergeants who like to constantly threaten to rip up weekend passes over the slightest infraction, and then bitch when they don't get any respect from the soldiers.

People who refuse to secure their children in car seats or seat belts. Ditto for those who allow them to ride in their laps or move about in the vehicle while driving. :2mad:

People who walk up behind you on an escelator.
People who think everywhere they go is their livingroom.
People in a crowd who just stop in front of you right in the middle of the only way through.

People...

Slow people at whatever place I am shopping at the moment or the rude family who takes up a whole aisle.

People who wait for other people to get in their car and back out so they can get a good parking spot (I have always found this to be incredibly selfish).

I'm tolerant of slow elderly people, while shopping but my goodness, they totally suck at driving.

I got this weird pet peeve from my mom. Toilet paper etiquette...

:prof The toilet-paper HAS to come out at the top and cascade down over itself like a waterfall.

I agree, unless you have a cat or toddler that loves to spin it untli it's all in a pile on the floor.

Its one thing if they can't help it. Its another if they think they are the most important person in the store.

Another one is parents who don't pay attention to what their kids are doing.

True that.
I've only ran into a few of those.
One time when I was about 15 this elderly woman was a total bitch to me when I worked in an in store restaurant.
I couldn't believe how rude some people could be after that.

What makes it worse is explaining to your young kids, why they can't do the same.

The only time I ever got fired was for telling an old lady to **** off. She deserved it though.

Yeah. They are too young to understand that sometimes loves means saying no.

Tough talking, foul mouthed women... It's not attractive and if your boyfriend tells you he thinks it's cool or cute, he just likes the sex because you probably also scream like porn-star.

Phase-5 inspection this morning. Class-A uniforms, barracks clean, quizzed in formation....I was ready....but I made one stupid mistake that cost me an off-post pass.

I didn't put the backing on my qualification badge. It poked out ever so slightly, and my sergeant just walked up and easily pulled it off.

****!!

All the time and attention put into getting ready that inspection just to overlook something so simple. I still passed the inspection because we're allowed 2 deficiencies total from all testable subjects, and that uniform deficiency was the only one I had. But you have to be perfect to get the pass. ****.
