Any Pet Peeves out there?

Mine (and Yes - I've got a lot of them!):

When people use the name of the restaurant as the name of the food. example: I ate (or had) McDonalds for lunch. No, you WENT to McDonalds. You ATE a Big Mac and fries.
People that say "sherbeRt" in reference to the frozen ice-cream-like dessert...I've looked in a dictionary and there's no "r" in the word. It's SHERBET.

Women who refuse to eat an actual meal in a restaurant on a date. God forbid they eat something besides a tiny garden salad and seltzer water. These same women will pig out on ice cream at their next Tupperware party or PartyLite candle meeting.

Idiot liberals who think the death penalty is wrong but abortion is OK.

Anti-war buffoons who get arrested for FIGHTING at the protest

People like Cher that refuse to retire

People who don't use their turn signal or use it after they are already turning.

Overuse of the word "unfortunately," especially as a way of deflecting personal responsibility for a situation, and because the speaker thinks its use makes him/her sound more intelligent. (Also, the word "irregardless")

People who leave their grocery carts in the middle of the parking lot, when the cart parking area is twenty feet away.

On-screen logos and other view obstructiung graphics. Case in point, the coverage of Hurricane Dennis on CNN was, to me, unwatchable because the screen was half-filled with graphics. They want you to watch but it's only to show off their overuse of on-screen graphics. It happens on 99.9% of the other broadcasters as well.

People who do not know the proper use of the words "there", "they're" and "their".

The grammatical conundrum involving the proper use of "that" and "which"!

Roadside memorials

"That begs the question" used improperly.

Wives who dress like "weekend warriors" or truck drivers, or business MEN....then whine like little children when their husband "eyes" a woman who looks like a woman.

People who refuse gainful employment.

People who assume the worse.

Professional Victims

People who refuse to remove their Kerry Edwards bumper stickers 8 months after the election.

People who drive too slow.

Lawyers in general.

Barbara Boxer thinking she matters.

The person who hit my car in the parking lot last week and took off.

Overpaid public employees.

NEW John Kerry bumper stickers

Stupidly loud music in a car

Stupidly low pants on boys

Buckhead Bettys in their really big SUVs who take up my time on the road

Politicians who claim to know what "the American people" want.

Politicians who throw the phrase "the world" around in the same way. ("The world stands with you.") The world is a mighty big place. Not everybody agrees.

People who call me and then put me on hold to answer the other line.

Liberals in general - although to me they're more of a laughingstock than a peeve.

People who eat or generally make a lot of noise on the phone. (yelling at their kids, flushing their toilet, etc)

Bitchy women

People who sit two car lengths back from the car ahead of them at traffic signals (leaving enough room to fit a semi) and causing traffic behind them to miss the green lights

People talking on cellphones who take their sweet time chatting away, oblivious to traffic behind them

Non-synchronized traffic signals (fuel wastage)

Visible butt-cracks....anyones!

Loud people in public places

People who drag their feet when they walk

Parents who let their children dress inappropriately for their age.

Couples who argue in front of others

Women who expect their men to be mind-readers

Baseball caps worn backwards

People who are mean to old people in public settings

Azzhats who dump animals off in the 'country' (my yard) instead of being responsible and getting them fixed.

Parents with crying kids who yell "I'll give you something to cry about"

Drama queens.

Clingy men.

Women who wear things they don't FIT in

Stupidly low pants on boys (and chubby girls)

People who try express their level of apathy by stating;
"I could care less." No, if you are truly apathetic, you couldn't care less.

Not getting a courtesy wave when I let someone merge in traffic

Too much cologne

"Crotch Rocket" motorcycles

People, when shown the truth, ignore it

A cart loaded with groceries in the 10 items or less line

People in long lines that act surprised when it is time to pay the cashier, and then count out pennies....

Meetings at the end of the day, especially on Friday.

Cell Phone Batteries

Power outages

Who would've thought that you would have so many _X_?
My pet peeves include but are not limited to:

Stupid customers

My wife's constant nagging

Running out of whiskey

Stupid customers

Running out of cigarettes

Stupid customers

Friends who owe me money asking to borrow money

Certain Republicans who blindly follow a puppet on strings

Stupid customers

People who come to my house to try and "save me" what happened to the phrase, "Only God can judge me"??

Oh, and did I mention stupid customers?

Jeeze x, no wonder you are such a grouch. You spend so much time hung up about things that you don't like you probably never have any time to see any positives in life.

Peace Dude.

That was me, I forgot to log in... another pet peeve of mine is people who don't log in and then don't take credit (or responsibility) for their post.

* Keyboard players who can't keep their left hand away from the bass guitarist's territory.

* Drummers who don't listen to what anyone else in the band is playing.

* Lead guitar players who think they can play rhythm, but don't have a clue.

* Bass players who play lead guitar like it's a bass.

* Singers who whine that the stage volume of the bass or drums is too loud.

* Sound technicians who mute channels on the board without warning for no apparent reason.

* Ovation guitars.

Oops! I'm guilty of that- sher-bert- yeck yea it sounds better than sher-bet. Oh well.
Liars and snobs I don't deal well with those. Only one word for people who leave the shopping carts in the parking lot- LAZY.
Other than that- I like being positive

People that say they don't like something but have never tried it.

I agree with the "crotch rockets". I can't stand when they drive for block on one wheel or when they pass in between cars.

People who say "Can I ax (or aks) you a question?" Last time I checked, it should be ask...

People who have nothing better to do than forward every joke, picture, cartoon or saying via email, then ask (ax) why i didnt respond to tell them how cute, funny or clever their 75 emails were today.

X-I agree with the graphics/logo on TV now-try watching ESPN's top plays-8 out of 10 times you dont see the catch, throw, dive, etc because of all the graphics, and the sound effects are just as bad.

Had a former employer who always used "ideal" instead of "idea." For example: "I saw another bank's ad yesterday, and it gave me a great ideal." This guy drove me up a wall with that.

I like crotch rockets, I just sold my Ducati.

Granted, though, some of those guys are just plain nuts. We were going across Alligator Alley last week at about 80 mph, and the one guy did a wheelie for about a 1/4 or 1/2 mile. I usually don't mind, but I was concerned that he was going to wipe out, and a second fear of me running someone over.

"Idiot liberals who think the death penalty is wrong but abortion is OK."

The rub is this: it comes down to respect for the dignity of the humans involved. People telling a woman what she might do with her own body and people saying that they should have the power to decide the outcome of somebody's life.
