    Would a list of peoples pet peeves be interesting?

    I can't stand it when I read a car add that says,"The car is red in colour." As opposed to what? Red in shape?!

    I also can't stand it when people chew gum. I murder them in hideous ways in my head.

    So anyone have any?

    I'm not terribly fond of the word "peeves" either.

    peeve number 1: correcting slang that was slung on purpose :doh:

    grammar corrections are for kids:smile:, not for people choosing to add flavor to their language... or is it flavour up there? :wink:

    1. the word "call" next to a phone number on a sign

    2. radio ads that repeat the phone number three times. "1-800-bla-blaa
    that's 1-800-bla-blaa call 1-800-bla-blaa" some idiot study somewhere must have come up with three times is the magic number to get people to remember

    3. people who are in the express lane and wait until everything is packed in bags to start looking for their check book. then they write the check really slow and then they fill our the check register.

    4. tailgaters riding my bumper.

    5. parents at the movies who decide to talk out loud to their kids about the movie. the kids are good, parents need to be muzzled.

    Cell phones.
    Whether it's a customer who interrupts our meeting to answer one or I am being tailgated by some b!tch talking on one.
    Was at a bridal shower Sunday and one of the bridesmaids answered her cell and carried on a long conversation while the bride was opening her gifts, they were seated together in front of an entire room of women so it's not like she was at a table or in the bathroom or something.
    Love....Jill

    I believe we must have some issues going on here. I think we need a group hug to make these narrowly potential suicidals..... re-think their peeves.



    Where's Dr Phil when you need him ??

    I despise being called a "Vendor". Whatever happened to service provider?

    Pet peeve number one. When I see a van lettered with a small graphic all the way to the rear of the large side of the van, so it matches the small side. (That really irks me)

    pet peeve number two. When you're in a movie theater and someone puts their shoes on the seat right next to your head, especially if they have sandals on and they like to wiggle there toes.

    Pet peeve number three. While you're watching a movie they open their phone so the light blinds you.
