People who don't use to and too correctly, and don't know the difference between your and you're.   Hell, throw in the "their,they're, and there".   I tend to read posts word for word so I pick u

Pubes on the bar of soap.

I apologise.

I saw one of these in work the other day, and I remembered how much they annoy me. I don't know why they do, because it's irrational, but I can't stand it.

 

I'm talking about typed up letters where the signature is in a different font to make it look hand signed. I understand why it's done, but for some reason my stomach bubbles when I see it. I wouldn't mind if it somewhat resembled handwriting. It does nothing, proves nothing. I hate it.

I use those things. Give me your home address and I'll write to you. :devil:

I don't mind people walking slow, there are numerous legitimate reasons for it, but when they keep moving from left to right making it hard to pass them, that's a peeve of mine.

Me too. You go to make a pass one way and they weave in front of you, so you go to make a pass the other way and they weave again.

 

Have you ever been walking at pace along a crowded pavement when suddenly everyone slows down, often at some bottleneck like a bus stop? You wonder why the slowdown. Is it some flossy-haired old lady who can't get about quite as quickly as she used to, or perhaps a disabled person who is poor and can't get a job and who has had a generally difficult life? Then you manage to see what exactly what the hold-up is. It's some f*cker staring at their mobile phone, oblivious to the world around them.

Why does my phones calculator need an update? What could you possibly add to it.

People that stand in the middle of the path talking. There's literally so many places you could stand. Don't you realize people are in a rush to get to work or where they need to be. Move out of the way.

 

I've found that elderly people are the biggest offenders for this, bump in to each other and end up nattering in the middle of the path forever. :lol:

As an extension of this, motherf*ckers who stop right in the middle of the path/walkway/etc - yeah sure mate just stop in the middle of a shopping centre and cause a 20 body pile up while you have a catch up with the rest of your coffin dodging pals.

When you find a game you've been looking for for years, and it's scratched as f*ck.

I found Shadow Hearts Covenant that I'd swapped for some reason years ago. Pissed me right off when I saw how sh*t both discs were. Yet when I try to swap a working game with a few tiny scratches that were already there and bought from the same place 'Oh sorry we can't take that'.

When people take advantage of your hospitality.

I hate this, and guests that overstay their welcome. Aunty Pam, you've been here for 5 f*cking hours, I care about you, but it's time to take a hint & leave.

When websites don't stop with persistent pop ups asking you to install their app, reddit is a particularly bad offender. Or when they redirect you to the app when you click the link without asking you, reddit is also guilty of this.

I hate that everything breaks easy these days. The light in the microwave I bought last Friday has gone already. Piece of sh*t. And a kettle I bought from the same place has a faulty switch that you have to slam down to stay on. f*ck TJ Hughes.

 

My aunt bought me a microwave when I moved out of my mum's in 2009. Lasted nine years and the light still worked.

Paper-cuts.

Styrofoam.

Crusty, dried up erasers that don’t erase! They smudge everything!

When people openly talk about politics/get in political debates in public. I mean, there’s a time and a place for it but in the middle of school, church, Walmart, McDonalds, etc. is just not.

When you’re talking to someone and they’re playing on their phone, computer, or video game without even acknowledging you. It is EXTREMELY rude!

 

I also have pet peeves about myself:

I can be sorta biased sometimes.

I sometimes post stuff before thinking.

There’s times where I can be impatient.

 

I mean, everyone’s gotta have at least one pet peeve about themself (unless you’re really that cocky, lol).

Badly constructed or maintained websites. The ones that are almost unusable and feel like you've been hijacked by ransomware but are actually just shi**y.

 

People who insist on telling you about their hobbies. Shut up, just shut up.

Can't stand it when people try talking to me as I'm walking out the door. I keep shuffling out slowly but they just keep going.

 

Also when I have headphones in. That probably means I don't want to talk. My face says I don't want to talk.

Ugh, I feel your pain, hun. Whenever I'm about to put on my headphones, I always have to tell them "Okay, I'm going to enjoy my music. In other words, don't bug me."

People just don't have a clue. Someone is talking close to me, I'm not looking at it, I'm not talking anything and yet the person just don't stop talking.

When you buy a can of Pepsi or something and the person serving you picks up the can from the top to scan it, putting their hand all around the top of it. Or the cashier blows their nose before giving you your change.

Wet clothes. Even when it's just a tiny drop flung at me while I'm washing my hands. I can feel that tiny little wet spot sticking to my skin and it makes me go into a full panic.

Just got Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, no issue with the game, more the dlc, inside the case there's a code for the dlc, but instead of the code being for the ps store you have to go to the square enix website, sign up for a membership, then enter that code on the website to get the code for the dlc on the ps store.

 

it's not a big deal, but why are they making me jump through hoops, just put the actual code in the box, like what RDR2 and most other games do. I don't want or need Square Enix sending me spam.

Hate it when people talk about the "good old days" before mobile phones and moan about how everyone now is glued to the screen. In fact pretty much anytime someone moans about "people these days". Every generation does it about the next, quit bitching.

 

Especially the ones who say "the 90s/80s/70s were better times, simpler times". No, f*ck off, that's just because you grew up in that era and it's what you know, you were an ignorant little child.
