Yes! It's even more annoying when the cupboards are messy because no one puts things back correctly.

I am a total cupboard control freak. I need help.

Another pet peeve is when people use too large of a container to store food. S/he will get a huge container because its the first one s/he found and only fill it 1/2 way, so fridge is full of half full (or less) containers when there could really be a lot more space if people weren't so lazy.

People wearing shoes in my house when there are clearly shoes in a shoe bin/on a mat at the door and/or not even asking if they should take their shoes off.

I would assume they belong to the resident family and that does not necessarily mean I need to take mine off. I don't usually take off my shoes in other people's houses, so you really would have to tell me! I am not going to ask.

My pet peeves

- People who never hear what you are saying the first time around. They go "Huh?" before you even finish your sentence, and then they insist you tell them everything again, which you don't feel like doing because it's too much work, it wasn't that important and the moment has passed.

- On TV, when people think it's a good idea to confront a dangerous killer ALONE, with NO weapons, and no visible means of defense, telling him/her that they know what they did and they will call the police. Guys, it's a KILLER. You think he will say "Ok, sorry, you're right. I will let you live and let you call the police on me"??

The fact that when talking on the phone on TV, there is almost never a bye on both ends to signify the end of the conversation. You're lucky if you even get one bye. Most of the time they just end. JUST SAY BYE.

I feel like maybe it rang endlessly for callers in the Toronto area at the time.

People who don't control their child(ren) in public

People who don't cover their mouth / nose when coughing / sneezing.

People who honk instead of getting their asparagus out of the car and walking to the door to knock.

Oh yes, many bus pet peeves. I think my biggest thing I wouldn't even call it a 'pet' peeve, because it's kind of a super big one, which is anyone on the bus that is not super-extreme polite about nose/mouth/throat stuff. IE, snorting, sneezing, coughing, hacking. When there is someone doing these things I have actually taken to shrugging off the embarrassment for being neurotic and I just put my scarf over my mouth and nose and glare.

Didn't the 555 thing start because of a Snoopy episode?

I hate people who don't follow carry on restrictions-for the bus or a plane.
People who ask me if my fake nails are real-(they are obiviously fake crazy long fake) Or make the statement those aren't yours/real-OK what's your point? I want to start saying "no but the boobs are."
People who ask who the guy is when I say I'm a vegetarian now.

People that don't graciously accept a "Thank you". Things like You're welcome, it was my pleasure, I was happy to do it are all acceptable. Dismissive responses such as Sure, It was nothing, and No problem really annoy me.

This is something I'm really trying to work on. I picked up the habit of "no problem" etc. as a way of downplaying my contribution--which is all kinds of forked, I know--and I'm trying to now say "you're welcome" because I think it shows that you appreciate their thanks and that you are taking ownership for something nice you did for another.

I find that really hard. My boss thanks me for everything and I would feel totally awkward saying "you're welcome" for doing what I never thought twice about doing. Like some times she'll thank me for telling her that I won't be coming in on some day. Or for checking in some books. "No problem" is easiest, also followed up with "you do realize that you guys pay me, right?"

I hate it when people ask a question that is supposed to be a simple question but is actually pretty complex if you take it literally (and I take everything literally).
Examples:

"Are you feeling better?" a few days after I get sick. Of course, as anal as I am, my response is "NO, of course I'm not feeling better, I got sick two days ago! Show a little patience for my disease, jeez!" Although what the person really means is, "Are you feeling better than yesterday?"

"How much homework did you have?"
Apparently, I'm supposed to answer "A lot" or "A little", but I don't think in those terms. The phrase "how much" makes me think of numbers, so I respond, "What do you mean, how much? How do you measure homework? In units of assignments? Cause you know, some assignments are bigger than others, so you can't really quantify them!"

"What's up?"
Of course I always answer with exactly what is up, from what I had for breakfast this morning to how many crazy people approached me on the bus, but apparently, to a lot of people, the phrase actually just means "Hello" and is not supposed to have an answer.

I say, people just need to be more precise and say exactly what they mean.

When people make plans in movies after they just met and THEY NEVER SHOW THEM EXCHANGING ACTUAL CONTACT INFORMATION. Like there's an automatic knowledge of the other person's address for them to be picked up at around 8. Drives me CRAZY.

AGREED TO THE MOTHERFORKING Nth POWER. I had a roommate like this and I literally could not understand how one could leave the doors open after getting what they needed out of it. DOES NOT COMPUTE.

A few others:

-I hate contact with water if I'm not planning it i.e. getting my shirt wet from doing the dishes or having some form of liquid spilled on me accidentally
-Anything touching my feet, especially my toes. I have extra sensitive toes
-When the husband keeps his shoes on after he comes home from somewhere without plans of leaving again
-People who don't return borrowed items. Seriously. Just give it back.
-Trying to sleep when it's too hot
-Being woken up in the middle of a deep sleep ALWAYS gives me a terrible migraine

I also hate it when people respond to something I say with a word or phrase that doesn't make sense in its context, such as "TRUE" or "THERE YOU GO."

Me: "I really prefer strawberries to bananas."
Dumb person who doesn't know how to talk: "TRUE."

Me: "I have a third nipple."
DPWDKHTT: "WELL THERE YOU GO."

So, there seems to be this epidemic at work of people taking a dump and then trying to cover up the smell by spraying Lysol in the air. That's there to disinfect the seat, not freshen the air. And air fresheners never help with poop smell. They just make the air smell like flowery poop.

What's your biggest peeve right now?


They're using this terrible apple cinnamon lysol spray in our bathroom. It smells like absolute death. shiitake smells better than that chemical crepe. It is SO forking bad!!!

The woman I share my office with has her blackberry volume on full, and she gets a ton of text message (default noise). Every time she receives one, the bloop noise is insanely loud and distorted. It scares the crepe out of me every time.

WANT TO SMASH!!!

YES. This infuriates me. I actually feel personally insulted by it, as if the person on TV was being rude to me.

I said this somewhere before but whatever, it's valid so you can hear it again. My number one hate ever is when you're out having drinks or something and someone pulls out their phone and forces you to sit there and watch some stupid video they downloaded. And then someone else inevitably makes you watch another video, because it's funnier than the first. And it just keeps going on, while I'm sitting there boiling with rage because seriously, if I wanted to watch stupid YouTube videos I would do it at home. Probably naked. I didn't come to hang out with you because I wanted to watch videos of cats, I came to actually hang out.

Also, I hate that my boyfriend is apparently physically incapable of putting the Vegemite away. I swear I have to put it back in the pantry at least three times a day.
