Yesterday i rang someone's pet peeve on here and it got me to thinking...what's yours?

Mine:

When you open a door for a lady and she doesn't say thank you.

When the guy at the store decides to buy 14 different lotto tickets...

When you flash your lights to let a tractor trailer driver know he can get over and doesn't say thanks...

When that lady at the grocery store pushes here loaded buggy into the 10 items or less line...and uses coupons.

What can i say...I'm irritable.

    When people use the words "literally" and "obviously" when they aren't applicable. Also, when someone starts a sentence with "honestly."

    Good timing, I was just complaining this morning about these.

    My biggest peeve is stupid people. I can deal with ignorance but stupid people really piss me off. Especially the ones who think they know it all. Also people who lie about stuff trying to make themselves look good when in all reality it makes them look like a bigger dumbass.

    Sorry but you asked.

    Sometimes I'll drink it down before adding the bourbon, but that ends up diluting the bourbon in my belly :D

    Is it appropriate to use a period after an ellipsis? :))

    I agree and have more.

    People that drive in the left lane and do not get over. Even when the sign reads slower traffic stay right. State law.

    Getting Passed you up in the left lane then cutting in front of you breaking to get off at the next exit.

     Texting while driving.

    People who ask how you would do something then proceed to tell you all about how they would never do it that way. You asked for my opinion; I'm not looking for a debate over its merit.

    Yes, when the omitted words end the sentence. Stupid interwebs crashed at work and half my post was deleted along with effing up the format of my last 3 thoughts. Stupid interwebs messed up my joke about everything that is "wrong" with the interwebs!

    Bahhh! X(

    Oh I also hate when certain videos buffer at the wrong times, if you know what I mean....

    Sorry but you asked.

    I hate when people gossip about you. Take this guy @shtgunal3 . He was telling me the other day he can cook a good pizza. I says "BS! The 3rd letter in your name should be an "I". I can out pizza you & serve up a world class pie in 3 minutes." Now he says he would like to see that. So I whip up my award winning dough in 5 minutes while the Egg is heating. "Don't use lighter fluid you moron! You'll contaminate my Egg!" I socked him in the nose and told him to be quiet, I know what I'm doing. By this time the Egg was nuclear. I opened it quickly and had a nice fireball. It was ready! I put the pie on and shut the lid. Three minutes later I pull off a perfectly blackened pie. "This tastes like sh!t and my Egg is ruined!" He was lying because my superior culinary skills intimidated him. You just can't teach some people.
