Let's talk pet peeves, shall we? If you have never heard of them, pet peeves are minor annoyances – small things that irritate you in other people – their activities and often habits that are annoying, uncalled-for or plain stupid.
I consider myself an easy-going person, but there are times when I can get pretty cranky and small things can get on my nerves.
Some of my pet peeves are:
- when people describe their dreams to me. (Come on! The only two people in this world interested in you dreams are yourself and your shrink!)
- when people put a sad face in their status and then when you ask them what's wrong, they say they would rather not talk about it.
- when people make negative comments on what unhealthy food or drinks I consume. (As long as I can move around with nobody's help, it's my friggin' business what I eat or drink. End of story.)
- when people talk loudly on their phones in public places. (I can't focus on my own thoughts, Mr Important!!)
- when people tell me I should listen to music on my phone rather than on my mp3 player because it's more convenient this way. (No, it isn't!!)
Ok, enough of bitching for now :))
Now take a look at some of other people's pet peeves. You can find them all and many more at

- Road maps that aren't folded correctly.
- Couples that own a dog together and call themselves mommy and daddy.
- Guys who leave the toilet seat up.

- When somebody tosses something toward a garbage can, like they think they're a basketball star, then leave it on the ground after they miss!
- Uncomfortable chairs.
