Default What'* your "Pet Peeves?"

I just got back from talking to a guy at Circuit City about a plasma screen... and this guy had overwhelmingly bad breath!!!
that led me to ask... what are your pet peeves???

Mine: bad breath, yellow/no teeth, people that constantly shake their feet (ie during a test), dirty wheels, smelly feet, people that practically live at the gym and brag about how rough they are...

im sure many more will follow...

Lol, I don't know if you want to get me started...
people who won't pull their weight at work, people who would rather give the silent treatment over just talking it out, people who complain but won't do anything to fix the situation, Honda Elements...just don't like them-or the new Chrysler Crossfire (no offense to anyone who does), chipped nailpolish...
and I too could go on and on...

I hate when people say they are going to do something and then don't do it.

I hate to be talked to condescendingly.

Hmmm....People with all their teeth (and white at that), people with clean socks, ....

jk. It was sarcasm!

Pet peeves include people who call themselves martyrs and then blow themselves up...hello! Look up the word martyr...someone who is killed (by someone else) for a cause they believe in. Blowing ones self up is not martyrdom...it is suicide. Done in the proximity of others, it becomes murder/suicide.

Another pet peeve...using the word "gender" instead of "sex". I am a man...that is my sex.

Another pet peeve...when people complain about high taxes but want everything from the government. I don't mind people having an opinion on taxation and public services...but if they want everything given to them...they had better be willing to pay for it. (I personally think I can manage my resources better than the government...but I will pull my weight and pay the taxes I owe. If I gurmble about taxes...I am willing to have fewer services for less taxation.

Okay...I am locking this post (not the thread)...I could go on and on.
