My brother snored and we shared a room. It got to the point where I always got in trouble because I'd smack him until he stopped. Then he'd yell, mom & dad would come in and I'd be chastised. I got a hideaway bed and slept in the garage--- best sleep I'd ever had up to that point
I can handle the crying babies - but I'm right thee with ya on the mouth noises and snoring - can't stand either one - oh, and when someone constantly chomps and smacks on ice - makes me want to pull my hair out
Wafflecheese, interesting name, doesn't go with your face, or your avatar's face....pet peves? hmmmmmm? Let's go back to your name.....is the Cheese in all the little square depressions of the waffles or are the waffles setting on a bed of melted cheese? Or is there sprinkled cheese over the waffles?
I hate it when people eat noisily. Or chew with their mouths open. Or talk with their mouths full. Any continuous or repetitive noise, like dogs barking or katydids screeching. I hate it when people roll their eyes at me. Man, that makes me furious!
I can't stand it when my husband messes with the volume of the car stereo. He knows I keep it only on prime numbers, usually 17. He loves to reach over and turn it up or down by one number, just to mess with me.
Sorry, I cannot get past the name WaffleCheese....please how can anyone who looks like you name yourself after some really strange (albeit delicious) sandwich? Why not just name yourself delicious, no I guess you would believe people would think you presumptious....
Ok I need a few minutes to adjust my mind...when I call you wafflecheese I'll have to think of blueberry waffles to include those eyes staring out of the computer...
my pet peeves, Wafflecheese, are....uh! Gorgeous young men with disturbing names....sorry...I just cannot help myself! You could be poetic, or inspired, or deeply sentimental, but what your name reflects is food, which could be ok in certain circumstances, but your name is the wrong kind of food for poetry...it's one of those pet peeves that no one can do anything about....I guess I'll call you WC, would that be ok with you?
People who ask "how are you?" ,then go on to talk about themselves forever
Lazy people who leave/throw trash around when the bin is right there!! what the hell is with that ...this morning I watched my neighbor (nice guy) get out of car, place his empty fizzy can on the kerb ,then walk in his house??? wouldnt it have taken the same amount of energy to bend an place it in his rubbish bin in the house???
Lazy poophead! But the more I looked ,the more I saw it , just lazy..
Dogs left to roam streets ( oh but they gotta be free..)
Shop assistants who look over the heads of children to serve adults...grrrrr
Uh EK, we have lots of dogs roaming the streets here. You might not want to go to my country because of this.
Pet peeve - uhhhmmm, late people (although they say it's the culture here), not being able to eat on time (gets me really cranky), not drinking my coffee in the morning, uhm, people who go to church then, after mass, start gossiping with other people (gggrrrrrr).
Oh, man, that's #1 in the top ten. I hate it that I keep copying Ralwus, but he has such good answers.
Other pet peeves: people trying to manipulate by being nice and also indirect. Just tell me what you want, ok? And I'll do it. We don't have to tap dance around the issue. S'ok to just TELL ME! It also saves us both a LOT OF TIME, TO JUST TELL ME!!!
Eating noises are big pet peeves of mine. The gum-chewing/snapping thing is enough to make me want to kill too. Big band music, "real" jazz music (at least most of it), a whole lot of country western music, and music that is nothing but a couple of notes - all things that make me want to kill, as well.
Deborah-Lynn, if you go to any site that lets you have codes for "smileys"/emoticons "for your website or forums" you can add whichever ones you like. These come from www.planetsmilies.net (where you select from a category, click on the one you like, and copy the code). On that site there are two codes. You would want the one "for forums" (the one has [img] in it twice. In order to put them on here you need to copy the first [img] (including the brackets), and everything between the first [img] and the last one (again, including the brackets). You then can paste what you've copied, preview your post here (to make sure you got all the characters and no extras), and there you go. I added a couple of basic smileys from the ones you get if you click on "formatting tips", just under the window where you type your forum post on HubPages.
If you paste the codes in on one line the pictures will be in a horizontal row. If you do "carriage return"/"enter" your pictures will be on their own lines. You can add spaces (or whatever) to get them to look the way you want them to look. (The partiers came, I think, from the "party" category, if I recall correctly. The band came from "music". I don't know where the smokers came from, but there's nothing like smoking smiley faces. (sending you a quick message through your profile in case you don't return to this thread...)
Lisa, thank you! I have been trying to put an emoticon on this sight all night but when I press [copy] under the image, it does not copy...I'll use your instuctions and see if I get better results. Your great to get back to me like this, I'll check my profile messages as well...
Pet Peeves... when girls almost sit on top of their guys while he is driving the pick up truck... and people that elbow you constantly during a ocnversation.. as if to get theit pint across.. Drives me nuts...
I work in the Restaurant biz and I HATE when people come in and they are in a bad mood so they feel it necessary to take it out on you and try to make you feel less then they do at that point. I just kill them with kindness and a GOD Bless you
No I dont hate the Government , but whoevers in charge of individual states and how they spend their money ,bail out money that is , is a sham!! The Governor of SC for example couldnt give toss if the bus system is run down , long lines at the D.M.V.
So inefficent ,badly staffed and mismanaged. Brain dead.
They need to hire more staff, and train them properly!
Hmmm let's see pet peeves. Smacking your mouth when you eat, Dogs that are not well behaved, children who are not well behaved in public. Controlling people, Large women who insist on wearing spandex. people who say know what I mean after every statement. Teenagers with smart mouths. People who drive and talk on their cell phones especially when I am a passenger in their vehicle. Women who try to act dumb on purpose to attract attention.
Well I suppose the lip smacking thing would be taken care of with some lessons in table manners. The dog thing, I don't know some good personal attention to training the dog when you get it. The cell phone thing, I would say making it illegal to drive and talk would help. I guess good personal attention to your kids would help the misbehaving children in public thing. Large women in spandex, I suppose will never go away. As well as the women who act dumb on purpose to gain attention, will never go away. Teenagers with smart mouths need to know that there are consequences for their mouths.
Ladies. Please, when you're asked where would you like to eat, PICK SOMETHING!!!!!!!! Do not say , "I don't care you pick.", this is a lie!!!!!!! I don't know any man who wants to list every restaurant in town till he hits a winner!!!!!! You know you're going out have a place in mind, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
My pet peeves are quite a lot...dare I list them all? Okay, just a few...all the noises that one makes when he's eating (slurping, chewing loudly, gulping, utensils when they touch your teeth)...and don't even go on chewing with your mouth open! What else? Spitting anywhere (totally gross and it's fairly common over here!). Typos, so it goes without saying I hate those weird text messages with alternate spellings, one can use the dictionary option anyway.
Drivers who HAVE to be first in line to the danger of anyone in their way. People who use the quick checkout line when they obviously shouldn't. People who talk behind your back. Not teaching children to say "please" and "thank you" Children with entitlement attitudes. ADULTS with entitlement attitudes.
Not to mention parents that let their kids run loose in parking lots. Too many times I see kids wondering behind the cars and in between cars while parents are busy putting packages away in the car. They should secure their children first.
Oh, and calling a product's help line (ie. Epson for my printer that won't work) and getting a pissy outsourced product assistant who is answering from some other part of the world; someone who has a thick accent that can't be understood by most Americans and who clearly doesn't understand American English.
Man, you guys scare me! Remind me to sit there quietly with my arms folded if we ever meet in person. I wouldn't want to inadvertently speak, chew, or move in a way that might offend. In all future correspondence, I'll try my best to refrain from the frivolous use of slang, non-words, and (gasp) emoticons. But then, I'm sure someone will be annoyed by my silence or grammatical correctness. What to do?? I just can't win with you people!!
Every time I spend time hub-hopping, I come here in hopes of finding a pet peeves topic...so I'm starting one. My pet peeve is in trying to rank or flag hubs with almost-but-not-quite decent use of grammar, spelling and...
I know everyone has their own pet peeves about Hubs. What are some of yours?One of mine is poor lay out. Things like not deleting the spaces at the end of a text capsule, so that it causes unnatural white...
