    That very few people seem to want to stop what they are doing for a second and think! Myself included by the way - some times!

    One of the worst that comes to mind is when I am waiting in line at the grocery store, and the clerk and current customer stand and talk after the transaction is done about personal business. 
      Or when you are diving down a narrow street and the car ahead of you and one coming the opposite direction know each other and stop and talk as if I am not waiting behind them.

    It is hard to imagine being so rude.  It is not so much about the waiting and the time factor, as it is being treated as though you are not there waiting and don't exist.

    Totally unnecessary noises! Like burping, loud humming or whistling, chewing loudly, snapping gum, etc. And smoking, thats just gross.

    I absolutely hate tailgaters...that irks me more than anything, especially in slippery conditions or at night when they're so close that their headlights shine in my eyes. Ugh!!!!!!!!!

    People who can't get off their cell phone no matter what the situation. I remember working retail and having people still chatting on their phones while they were at the counter and oblivious to me trying to finalize their purchase. Sometimes I would tell them the total and they would still be running their mouths instead of paying and moving along so I could ring up the next person. Ahhhh!!!!

    I can not stand people who lie especially just for the sake of lying, and not really a pet peeve but I feel horrible when people can't stick up for themselves when they need to in certain situations. I also have a thing with indecisive people because whenever I make up my mind, I stick with it! smile

    Odd numbers that don't end in five, except for 3... Can't stand them. If my television volume bar is at 17, it's going to 16 or 18 before I can watch anymore.

    My biggest pet peeve is people with inflated egos. They are insensitive to others and think they are above the law.

    Poor customer service - I just get livid when someone in a shop or at the checkout makes it so incredibly obvious that they would rather be somewhere else and are not listening or do not care...I was never like that in the jobs I had when I was starting out in the workforce and I can't relate to people who do that.  If they hate their work that much then they should go get a job with no customer contact.

    The ugliness and hatefulness of humans against other humans.

    I can't stand when people don't use their turn signal or brake right before they turn. It's common sense flip the lever before you turn that simple.
