Yes, litterers in general, but especially cigarette butt litterers. There seems to be a blind spot that a lot of smokers have that makes them think cigarette butts don't count as trash. I bet a lot of these people who flick their butts wherever they want (that's my sidewalk too, crasshole!) wouldn't just fling a Snickers wrapper any old place. I always want to be that crazy bisque who picks it up and gives it back to them: "Here, you dropped something." But, ew, cooties.


This is especially a problem in Lawrence around our bus shelters, which you're not supposed to smoke around, anyway (as I already ranted about). Smoking in general is a peeve of mine, but doing so without consideration for anyone else sends me immediately into a Hulk-like rage.

OH YEAH especially people who get off the ESCALATOR and come to a dead stop while they rifle in their bag or get out their phone or whatever causing your life to flash before your eyes as you imagine dying crushed to death under a pileup of human bodies at the top/bottom of the escalator.

when people drive behind me at nighttime...especially on the country roads. it's so bright in my mirrors and just HORRIBLE

i also hate driving with people around me at all during the day because i like listening to music and focusing on it, not being distracted by some ugly chunk of metal in front of me, or some dildo behind me

I had the opposite problem -- I was way ahead of my classmates and bored out of my mind in school, and begged to skip ahead, and my parents were dead against it, thinking I'd end up a socially maladjusted weirdo. Well, guess what, I ended up a socially maladjusted weirdo anyway...and by high school, I had given up on school altogether, because I wasn't getting anything out of it and nobody cared enough to challenge me intellectually. There was one point at which the school I was at ALMOST convinced my parents to let me accelerate in a few subjects, at the beginning of middle school, but then I had to move schools again, and the new school was a whole year behind the school I'd been at before, so it was a great big waste. So now not only am I a socially maladjusted weirdo, but there are HUGE holes in my education because somewhere around 8th and 9th grade, my brain just shut off.


I just have to say that you don't come across as a socially maladjusted weirdo at all (well, except to the extent that we're all a little weird and that's what makes us interesting.) I think you come across as intelligent and wise, as a holder of strong opinions who is articulate enough to communicate them, and an effective educator and advocate (I've learned a lot from your contributions to discussions about sex and gender.)


Hehehe...thanks. You haven't hung out with me in person yet, though...just you wait!

Seriously, though, thanks...that was really sweet and made me smile a lot. :)

I have sooo many. I feel like stabbing my husband lately because of one:

If I empty the dishwasher, load the dishwasher with my dirty plates, and make you dinner, the least you can do is put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher, not on the counter.

I keep coming back here to post pet peeves, so much so that I am starting to think I am a horrible person.

Playing music in a shared office, without headphones. I am getting really tired of hearing it. And yes, as much as I love Christmas, it is too forking early for Christmas music in the office. Also, don't sing along.

I admit I'm like your husband in this one. But the great thing about my partner is he says at the end of diner 'don't forget to put your dirty dishes away' and then it reminds me to do it, and I do. Maybe you think this would sound snarky if you were to say it but I can say that indeed if you say it lovingly then it doesn't seem weird at all to the person it is being said to!

We are on totally different eating schedules so usually what happens is I see him on the couch or on his computer as I walk into the kitchen to see the plate on the counter. At which point, I'm in the kitchen and he is not so I don't tell him to put it away. If I happen to be in the kitchen with him though, I let him know.

I really disagree with way of thinking, it can eventually push the other person into feeling like a nag and that just isn't fair. It's really not nice to have to constantly remind another adult to do something.

Yeah, this.
My boyfriend won't do housework unless I ask him to. When I ask him why he hasn't done X, he'll usually say some variation of, "Because you didn't ask." He's 30. It makes me feel like a complete douchebag and a total nag, because now I have to ask him to pick up his dirty plates, cups, bottles, food wrappers, etc. every day and every night or it just doesn't get done. He insists he doesn't mind at all, and he's never complained about me asking, but it is wearying, especially when I forget to ask and come home to a trashed house as a result.

You absolutely shouldn't have to ask another adult to contribute to keeping the house clean and in order. That's ridiculous. But unless you tell them how crazy it makes you they'll continue to think it's acceptable behavior, and it won't stop. I think that, in these situations, it's best to sit down and have a chat about the whole thing. Explain that it makes you feel underappreciated when your SO doesn't clean up after him/herself and leaves everything for you, and tell them you don't want to have to feel like you're constantly nagging them to do it.

Thanks, f_p. I needed to be reminded that! Actually, I should probably print out your post and put it on a Post-It to carry around. I've tried to discuss it before, but it invariably gets swept under the rug (or rather, not swept under the rug) after a few days. The biggest problem has been that when I say it makes me feel like a nag, he just insists that he doesn't think I'm nagging, so I should just continue asking him to do any/everything.
Before we moved in together, he lived with like a half-dozen other people in a basement show house (his old bedroom is actually featured in that punk houses book), whereas I lived in an immaculate 1-bedroom apartment, so our housekeeping styles are... dissimilar, to say the least.

It bothers me when people ride their bikes on the sidewalk going opposite traffic, especially when I am walking on the sidewalk opposite traffic and they creep up behind me. If they had a bell or yelled "on your left/right" it probably wouln't bother me as much. I understand pulling up onto the sidewalk if it's a busy street, but shouldn't they still be going with the traffic? I guess I just don't like sharing the sidewalk and maybe I am the jerk?

I would tell him that it doesn't matter whether he thinks you're nagging. That's just dismissing your feelings and trying to gloss over the problem, in my opinion. It makes you feel bad, not to mention that it's a pain to have to remind him to do basic adult things, and that is the bottom line. He needs to realize that this is important to you. It stresses you out and makes you upset, and that is not okay.

I agree with this. I would tell him it doesn't matter if he minds or not, you mind and that's important enough for you not to have to do it.

I lived with a brain injury survivor for 13 years and our way round housework hassle was a check box print out for each room with colour coding for who did what and dates for things to be done on certain days/weeks and ticked off.

Another pet peeve: Mr Scruffle thinks it's cute to lick me... Yes, my boyfriend will randomly lick me and when I squirm and say "ewwww! Stop it!" He just thinks it's funny. Grrrrrrrrr! So... Much... Fury...


My partner does this all the time. The problem is, he doesn't do it cos he thinks it's cute, he just does it cos in his brain it computes as "showing affection". I ask him not to all the time but he keeps forgetting because he gets so excited to see me that he can't control himself (and we live together, so that's saying something). On his birthday this year, he asked if as a special present he could please lick me all over my face. It was the most revolting sensation I have ever experienced. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a relationship with a puppy.

Things that also really shiitake me:
- People touching me on the train. Ok, sometimes it's crowded and you can't help it, but at least try. Male-assigned/socialised people especially - stop taking up ridiculous amounts of space. Your junk is really not so huge that you need to take up two seats with your legs so far apart. That's just douchey.
- Cupboards and drawers being left open. It's been said many times. Why can't people just forking get it?
- Not emptying the food catcher thing that sits over the plughole in the kitchen sink. It's forking disgusting when it gets all full of bits of food. Especially when those bits of food are egg, which is probably the food I hate most of all. It's really not that difficult to tap them out into the bin. It takes a 10 seconds at most. One of my housemates is particularly bad at this. In fact, he does a number of things that really shiitake me, but I'm not going to go into that here.
- When the trains have the *ping* "Doors closing" sounds turned up really really loud, so that they actually hurt your ears. It's unnecessary Transperth, and it's damaging my hearing!
- Slow walkers, or people in large groups taking up too much space and dawdling.
- Bikes on the footpath when there's a bike lane.

I could probably go on, but I won't.

I just went out to dinner with the boyfriend and encountered one of my greatest peeves. I hate it when one person finishes eating first, and the waiter takes their plate away before the other person has finished eating. I'm always last to finish, and I hate sitting there eating with a plate of food in front of me while the other person sits opposite me with nothing. I know it's irrational, but it makes me feel rude to keep eating. Also, it makes me look like some kind of slave master who makes her partner watch her stuff her face with all the salt and pepper tofu on the table while he sits there hungry.

THIS! I eat slowly, too, and this makes me furious.

I'll add to waitstaff-related frustrations with this one: servers who loudly interrupt you mid-sentence to ask you how your food is. I know you have a lot of tables, but you could at least let me finish my thought.

Interrupting is a huge peeve of mine in general, though.

Table staff should be asking before taking any dishes away. I would just ask your boyfriend to tell them to leave it there. I know the staff want to get the dishes gathered & washed but it's poor service to clear the rest of the table while someone is still eating, you don't have to put up with it.

I was at a wedding once and the waiter tried to take away my plate while I was still eating. "People don't usually put their forks down unless they are finished eating, " she said. Huh? I am a slow eater, I need pauses. I assume or hope this was just an occasional job for her.

From what I remember putting your fork on the side of the plate & resting your knife in the prongs is the signal to table staff that you're finished eating. Left down any other way indicates that you aren't, I don't know how many people would know that now though *feels about 110 typing that*.

Someone probably already said this (and I'm too lazy to go through the three pages this has gone on since I've last visited this thread)- not putting the new roll of toilet paper on the dispenser.
Or, putting it on upside down (yeah, I'm one of thosepeople who has to have it go on a certain way. I completely appreciate if people just put it on the dispenser, though. I'll fix it later.

And I'm with everyone on the slow walker issue. If I have a slow walking kind of day, I move off to the side so as to not take up the entire sidewalk.
