Pet Peeves

Postby beatdrum » Wed Jun 20, 2007 6:44 pm

Simple..list a few of your pet peeves (by the way, I'm bored)

people typing "your" when they mean "you're"

a girl sitting right next to her boyfriend in a truck (I live in the south)

By the way, I realize that responding with "useless topics" or something like that is perfect for this thread, so if you feel the need, go ahead.

- Misspellings.
- Couples that sit beside each other at booth tables in restaurants.


I've got more, but it would just make me look like an unreasonable person if I shared them all. :D

People who pull out as fast as they can then drive 5-10 under the speed limit.

people who bring babies to the movies then don't leave when the baby starts crying after an explosion. "yeah, good idea bringing an infant to a movie where bombs and bullets are blowing up planes and cars. jee, he started crying? what a surprise." then they got the nerve to stay there like it's not a big deal. hey lady, it's not my baby. get it the hell out of there.

when people slow down to watch an accident on the freeway, causing traffic that backs up for miles. because of your idiotic self-serving curiosity and tendency to feel good about yourself when others are in misery, i had to waste 30 extra minutes of my life on the freeway. oh what? you're doing it because you're concerned about the people in the car accident? so then, you got out of your car and helped them, right? oh no? then shut the hell up. loser.

(yeah, these 2 are real real big pet peeves of mine. i only have these 2 though.)

i'm not criticizing or anything, but just curious (since i don't live in the south), what's wrong with a girl sitting right next to her boyfriend in a truck? do you mean like in the middle instead of the passenger seat?

i'm guilty of this sometimes. but we do it only when the restaurant is not crowded. is that the reason why this is your pet peeve? because it wastes space and forces more people to wait than they would if all couples sat across from each other?

What affect would it have on the wait if it's a booth? Either way it's only going to be 2 people in the booth.

Mine is people using "of" instead of "have" in phrases like "would have" or "should have."

Generally a pet peeve is something that bothers you for no particular reason or at the very least really bothers you when it's just a minor annoyance to other people. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with sitting next to somebody in a truck, it just really irks me. Scoot over girl!
