Pet Peeves

Post by minks »

Ok you's guys now that you all got riled up about issues here....

What is your absolute and most "I can't stand it I may have to commit murder" Pet Peeve.

Anyone who says Saintsman automatically gets sent to jail witout passing GO and without collecting 200 dollars.

Something beyond the usual like prejudice, and dishonesty etc.

My absolute pet peeve is people stepping into my space. Ie. Behind me in a line up and you have to bump me with your card or basket. I could murder for that.

Reading this and having your sig line follow it REALLY gave me a good chuckle!!! I am so NOT trying to turn this into a gun debate...PLEASE!!!...(most know my stance on that)...It just struck me as very ironic and quite funny. And, Hawke? That was NOT a shot, either.



My biggest pet peeve is being interrupted. Like what you have to say is SOOOO much more important than what I'm saying??? :yh_doh

BAD GRAMMAR!

There's no such word as "alright" or "alot".

When you're talking about something that occurs on a daily basis, it's "every day," not "everyday" (as in, "I see my friends every day," not "I see my friends everyday.")

THERE ARE NO APOSTROPHES IN PLURALS. You have two cats, you don't have two cat's.

There is also no apostrophe in the word "its" when it's used as a possessive. "The cat ate its food." NOT "The cat ate it's food."

When you mean "you are"...it's "you're" not "your." As in: "You're so funny," not "Your so funny."



WHEW...I feel better now.

What are you, an English teacher??? Your pretty funny, though. (Yes I did that on purpose.) :yh_bigsmi

lol@Erinna! You'll have to excuse me, Erinna. Although my mother was an English teacher, and I, myself, teach it at Nightschool (It's one word because it's a special proper noun we use to refer to night school) I still have a few "stutters" in my posts.

I'm going to blame it on screaming kids distracting me and my arthritus, okay?

For me...no doubt.

I HATE ROAD RAGERS!

They are despicable, detestable, digusting, discombobulated, dire examples of drivers.

One of my pet peeves is when people that are teaching you try to teach you wrong things as being right.

Another pet peeve is people who are know-it-alls....so you won't catch me going around actually correcting anyone.

And I do keep in mind that it's content that's important, not mechanics. I have to chuckle at some of my classmates, though. I'm a college student and just got finished with an advanced writing class. Given some of the submissions (I go online, so I can see everyone's work) I have to wonder how they made it through sixth grade, let alone graduated from high school. Yikes.

My pet peeves are people who chew with their mouth open, chew gum and pop it every time they bite down, and people who let their dogs run loose through the neighborhood. They all come to my house and poop, as if I didn't already have enough poop of my own to pick up! :o

What I love about know-it-alls is when they finally figure out that the people that they are putting down with their know-it-all-ness actually know more than they do.

Love the look on their faces. :yh_rotfl :yh_rotfl :yh_rotfl

My pet peeves?

Home--Chip bags not thrown away that barely have crumbs

Work--People who say "give me" and never say please and thank you

Store--People on cell phones, people who do not have their check even started

Forums--3 or more threads on basically the same subject.

Driving--People who pull out in front of you, almost causing an accident and they are only going 3 yards.

actually, much of the time the problem *is* the spellchecker. spellcheckers have no clue about context, so can't correct a properly spelled word used incorrectly.



for example, just a day ago i emailed a correction to my local city's finance department, because on the back of the water/sewer/garbage bill it states, among other things



Payments not received within 30 days of the billing date will be accessed a $15.00 penalty.

SPITTING.. :-5 Just makes steam come out my ears. Especially when the person in front of you spits, and your in the line of fire.. Disgusting, sounds awful, and just bad manners.

I don't watch TV because of all the dross on it, but the clips I've seen, those [insert country here]'s Got Talent, with the 2 trademark talentless idiots in the wings, who contribute absolutely nothing to the show. Worse still are the audience when they're screaming while the artist is performing. If I'm watching the show it's the Artist I want to hear, not some mindless screeching.

Don't like when drivers in their car have the radio blasting with the windows open, and when they stop next to you at a red light, you have to listen to their blasting loud music!

His auntie lives with him . Are they both on such heavy medications that neither of them can hear it????

Buy him https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/402289778687 and tell him if he doesn't set it to 10pm and use it, your mates will sort him instead. It's worth $20 just to win.
