Thread: Pet Peeves

  1. #16
    Spitters are the absolute worst. I hate when I walk past a group of kids gobbing on the ground and they don't stop while I pass. Bad enough that you walk about spitting, guys, now you're spitting on me?

    BAN HOODIES AND GET OFF MY LAWN.

    I'm the same way. I like to mix it up.

    Spitting drives me absolutely insane as well, but my biggest pet peeve is loud cellphone conversations in public. Particularly in a small, enclosed area like an elevator or the bus. Everyone is forced to listen to what you have to say and trust me, none of us care in the slightest. Cellphones have created an environment where people not only feel that what they have to say is important, but that it can't wait 15-20 minutes until they're in a more private area.

    I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE when i'm merging onto the highway, and some dickwad behind me that's also merging thinks it's okay to pass me on the right so he can get up further when the LANE IS ABOUT TO END ANYWAY, EINSTEIN. I purposely stay in the middle so if i see someone behind me inching up about to do that, there's no room and they have to just merge in line like the rest of us.

    Driving under the speed limit. Read the sign, grandma. It says 55 not 40, 45 or 30! And don't look at me like I'm a dick for passing you.
    This always happens when I go to visit my mom. Ugh.

    When someone touches my belly button.

    When cars slow down and turn before you, but never turn on their signal.

    When riding the subway, you're supposed to let people off the car and then get on. It makes sense, because then there's room in the car. It's polite.

    I hate when people push their way on while people are still getting off.

    I also hate when people stand in the doorway and don't move for the people trying to get on and off.

    Eating food on the subway? Meh. Eating smelly food on the subway? BLECH!

    Clipping your nails on the subway? Screw you, you animal!

    Oh my god, nail clipping on the bus drives me NUTS. It is so LOUD to me. Another one of those things where you wonder just why it couldn't wait until someone got home. Right then, RIGHT THEN is when you just HAVE to clip your nails?

    The buses I take are frequented by old people who are pros with the bus. Pros as in they ride even more than I do. On the way home from work, I'm near the beginning of the line for the main bus that I take. So, basically, even when that stop is crowded we will all get a seat on the bus. But the amount of pushing/shoving that takes place to get on is amazing to me. People will line up, cut in front of you, push you out of the way to board, and -if someone is unlucky enough to want to get OFF the bus at that stop- steamroll over other passengers in their mad dash to get to a seat.

    It's kind of turned me into a person who loathes elderly people, particularly (and this is not PC of me, but it's the truth) older bag ladies who will bring on 4-5 trash bags full of cans and bottles that they've scavenged from trash cans. Then you're pushed out of the way in the seat-dash by an old lady who smells like garbage.

    Slow walkers drive me crazy too. I also get irritated when I'm walking on the Seawall footpath, and people on bikes and rollerblades blatantly ignore the signs for their paths and come close to mowing me down because they don't use the path for blades/bikes. Oh, and then they give me dirty looks for not moving. Screw you, I'm not on your path.

    Oh, Ed, i was just thinking about that yesterday! i was getting off the elevator and some guy barged right on in and almost knocked me over. I was like, wait, isn't elevator etiquette that you wait for the people to disembarge and then make your way in? Yeah.

    Oh I was going to mention nail clipping and other "grooming" (scoriasis picking, head smelling etc etc) but I thought I might have been crossing the line from pet peeve to common fucking decency. Like the guy who touches every seat, where every head rests and the proceeds to sit down and eat raunch ass-reek-of-vinegar buffalo wings and then SUCK ON HIS FINGERS and then touch every seat on his way out. I hate you guy. Especially during rush hour.

    ETA:
    Feet on the seat
    Bags and other shit on the seat to prevent people from sitting down

    When people get on the train but huddle together in the entrance because they are too scared to sit next to anyone in the train. Thus restricting access to the train for people yet to get on. Just sit next to someone for the two minutes it takes!!

    Also slow walkers. And people who cut across.

    Did you guys read the Gawker article about the grossest things people have ever seen on the subway? It's a great read, but make sure you haven't eaten anything beforehand.
    Ew. I dont even think I want to know.

    good thread - i love that i have time to read the forum now!!

    agree with lots here must add another traffic pet peeve:

    * those that rush, cut you off, tailgait you...only to get to a red light.
    not worth risking death or accidents that will just slow us down more dumbtards.


    oooh. that is another one. not smart people!!

    but i guess we are all that in our own way and i am sure there is something i do that will be someone else's pet peeve.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is when I'm trying to help someone with a computer problem and a big error message shows up and they INSTANTLY close it without even reading what the fuck it said and say "SEE! WHY IS IT NOT WORKING?!"

    I don't fucking know, maybe if you read the message we could get a goddamned clue!


    EDIT: My other big computer peeve is when someone tries to get me to help them over the phone or via I.M. and they act all indignant and pissed off when I don't know what they're talking about. Just so everyone knows, I'm not a fucking psychic. I can't see what's on your screen. You want to empathize? Walk into another room and tell me what's wrong with your computer from memory, not looking at the damned thing. It's not so easy when the machine isn't right in front of your face, is it?
