Snoring, Eating (any mouth noises), crying babies, whiny toddlers, SMACKING and POPPING GUM!!!
Seriously, if any of do this around me, I'll murder you.
Yikes! I snore but I keep trying to stop! Please don't hurt me, I have cookies!
Bring me the cookies and we'll talk.
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 guess you have to murder yourself first. You sure came across like a whiny toddler
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.
I hate the noise of someone sucking a sweet, drives me nuts. People who have clicky jaws.....oooh sort it out.
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?
Yes, that would be fine..
Just roll with it though, It's all in good fun!
Oh, and another thing that annoys me?
Emoticons! Seriously, I've never used one.
Ha ha ha! You are hilarious, seriously? WC you are like the little red button on Tommy Hillfinger's Runway collection!
anyone answering a cell phone when I'm talking to them
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???
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
Ok sorry , I need coffee...
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).
Ten men in our country could buy the whole world and ten million can't buy enough to eat.
Hazha to that ralwus. Are you naked in your picture?
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!!!
Sorry, got carried away for a minute there.
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.
As for emoticons....
....I kind of think they're cute.
I sooooo love this Lisa, it's just adorable, please write a Hub with sp by step instruction on how to do this...I really want to do this...wow!!!
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...
People that think there is another "h" at the end of height.
I can see how the ignorant are easily confused when we are taught the equation:
length x width x height
But that is a hard T folks, it is not heighth!
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...
People dragging their feet!! Can't stand it! I absolutely hate the sound of grit.
I hate, hate, hate it when a car turns very quickly onto your road cutting you off, AND THERE'S NO ONE BEHIND YOU! Drives me NUTS!
Pet peeve #2 -- overuse of the word like. "Like, he said to me, like, you know, like...."
I gotta new one
Inefficient government departments!!!! all those taxes and so little return!
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
I hear that, you are so gracious to kill them with kindness, do you spit in their food?
LOL! I've had exactly the same question for some time now!
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!
I wasn't making accusations, just sharing my opinion...it's just as bad in the Northeast.
You think bigger government spending more money will be MORE efficient?!
Yeah, and every beer I drink makes me more sober...
Biggest pet peeve?! People who don't turn off their cell phone in church, or at funerals or weddings and things like that. It is so annoying and extremely disrespectful to everyone.
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.
Can't say I've lived a day without being amist all those things, what would you do about them?
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you need to inhale when you eat cereal or soup, then don't eat it at all. Die of starvation, I don't care.
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.
I have a lot more but I'll stop right there.
Why can't we all be just like when we were born? Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Are you naked?
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.
I hate when parents think it is ok to drive when their kids are not wearing seat belts - I have confronted some. That makes me so MAD!!!!!!!
People who smack their lips when they talk
People who let those foamy white spit balls form on the sides of their mouth when they talk.
How about when people ask you for your email address and then ask:
'Now, is that one word?'
or, 'is it all lowercase?'
When did email addresses EVER BE SEPARATE WORDS! Why ask me that? They are always ONE WORD!
My biggest pet peeve are whiners who constantly are looking for attention for their poor ole self.
Next would be "why are you a stay at home mom when your kids are in school?"...bugs the carp out of me.
Bad table manners.
People who tap on aquariums.
People who don't train their dogs (or kids ) and then say they're bad when they misbehave.
Bad liars. If you're going to lie to me, at least have the decency to be convincing about it.
People who think they should be first in everyone else's life.
People who think they have a right to try to control or change someone else.
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.
Bad Drivers....some people just shouldn't be let loose on the road...
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!!
<---Sorry Mr. Cheese.
And the sound of people clipping their nails. I got a guy right behind me doing it and I wanna punch his lights out. Do that at home. Alone.

Some of my pet peeves are....When people use words in the wrong context.When people use "I seen" instead of "I have seen" or "I saw"People who stop right in the middle of a busy hallway or sidewalk, or who stop right at the top of the escalator.What are yours?
by Susan Keeping 10 years ago
My latest pet peeve is when people write "now-a-days" in an article. I see it a lot. What are your pet peeves?
by mom101 11 years ago
Do you have a pet peeve? If you do, share with us what it is and what you think could be done to make it better.
by Theresa Kennedy 11 years ago
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 punctuation. I've hopped this type more often than the high quality type...
by Kristin Kaldahl 9 years ago
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 space to appear in a hub drives me batty. Also adding in too many pictures...
by Susan Keeping 12 years ago
My major one right now on Hubpages is people who insist on adding an apostrophe to every single plural. This is not right, you do not add an apostrophe to pluralize a word. Not singling anyone out, I have seen it quite often. I've even accidentally done it myself.What pet peeves do you have in...
