    The sound of a dog licking it's feet or coat.  That sound makes me crazy - it will actually wake me up at night.  And love my husband dearly, but the sound of him clearing his throat is so loud and just makes me cringe.  And trying to install software on a computer that should take it but something is wrong and it has no clue and I have no clue and ........that drives me nuts.

      Trying to install software that claims it's easy and then won't fly is terribly frustrating.

    3. When others argue or have a disagreement; I will even pause a movie to avoid a pending argument or disagreement.

      I'm with you on the arguing.  If people need to disagree, htey can take it somewhere else in a private setting.

    #3: People who drop the door in your face when you are right behind them.
    #2: Strangers asking me personal questions like how much I make, how old I am, etc.

    And the # 1 annoying thing that drives me crazy...

    People who let their kids scream, laugh loudly or otherwise create clatter in movies, church, at weddings and other places where it should be quiet. I always got up and took my child out so she would not disturb those around me. I would appreciate it if you would do the same.

    1. vocalcoach profile image99

      Your #1 answer about screaming kids in movies, church etc., is another thing that bothers me.  It's just rude.

    #3 - The fifteen people who walk through a door my husband holds open for them without saying "thank you."

    #2 - Clothes that stay in the dryer too long without being folded.

    #1 - A bathtub that doesn't drain properly so that there's standing water in the bottom when you've finished showering.

    Lack of responsibility.

    People that litter annoy me.  I saw a teenager come out of a store take food out of a bag and then drop the bag in the middle of the street.  It also annoys me when people are bothering everyone around them.  When I was at the beach a group of people were acting like they were deliberately trying to bother everyone around them.  I know they spent a few minutes trying to bother me.  Two men walked over to me and started dancing right in front of me.

    I am also annoyed by people that do not use good manners.  When someone coughs, sneezes or burps it really annoys me if they do not at least try to cover their mouth.

      I'm with you on people who litter. A selfish thing to do.  And yes, everyone should use the crook of the elbow for coughs and sneezes.

    People who don't reply when you say "good-morning."
    People who never say "please" or "thank you."
    And parents who allow their children to run wild in the supermarket, doctor's office etc.

    1. vocalcoach profile image99

      Parents should control their kids in the supermarket and doctor's office.  They aren't always that cute to other people.

      BTW, I HATE the new Betty Crocker commercial with the kid squealing "Please" all the way through the store. THEN, to top it off, the mom gives into his horrid behavior and gives him a snack. Wow! Just Wow!

    Hi actually like you, I despise gum chewers for a number of reasons. One would be one of your answers and that is when they are trying to crack their gum in your ear, especially when you're trying to concentrate.

    Another reason, is that people and not only kids, tend to forget where to find a waste basket in a supermarket. And because they do not know where to dispose of it, end up sticking it behind, or on the side of a can of peas, or corn that you just grabbed a hold of on the shelf.

    And the one I probably hate the most, is the one where you go into the city to have a nice dinner with a group and then just before walking into the restaurant, near a subway for example, you spot some clown picking a piece of old chewed gum off the rail and sticking it into their own mouth. I guess they must think it's free candy, or something similar, who knows maybe crack.  lol.

    When people repeat the same mistakes and complain about it.

    When girls wear their thongs showing above their jean line.

    Adults talking behind each others backs as apposed to expressing opinions to the persons face.

    These are the top 3 things that kill me!

    - people cracking their finger bones

    - people sniffing every few seconds rather than blowing their nose

    - queue jumpers

    The first two make my stomach turn, the first is particularly inconsiderate because it's known that this gives most people the willies, and the third is an out and out display of selfishness.  Although if someone asks nicely and has a good reason for wanting to queue jump I will let them.

    Top 3 peeves:

    1. When someone makes this clicking noise in their throat. nonstop.
    2. Someone that does not understand personal space.
    3. When people drive really recklessly on the roads. Freaks me out!

    Great question!

    At this age I don't suffer fools nor rude people well at all -- well, that may be age related or not as I didn't handle those things too well when I was younger either! I also find my patience is short with folks who ask very personal questions -- which is obviously none of their business. Gosh, I am gettin' cranky!

    1. Mr./Mrs./Miss Know it all. They have been there and done that, and can tell you how everything should or should not be done. They dominate the conversation in a loud voice, so only they can be heard.
    2. People who are constantly on their cell phone, conducting their conversations in public. I was forced to listen to a lady in the waiting room of my doctor’s office, tell her friend about her sex life—or lack of it.
    3. People who talk about their personal lives at work. They evidently think everyone wants to hear it. They go on and on about what their spouse, girlfriend, or child said or did last night. Or how they cannot pay their bills because they are not paid enough, and on and on.

    These people are carriers of stress, and gladly dish it out as if others want to hear about their lives.

    1. People that take up a whole aisle at the grocery store and refuse to move. They'll leave their cart on one side and peruse the counters on the other side. I always say they are part of the "I'm the only one in the world" club.

    2. People that don't say "thank you" or "excuse me".

    3. Drivers (usually people in trucks) that get behind me and ride my bumper and blind me with their bright lights. They think that will make me move faster. Um. No. It doesn't. I actually go slower and laugh at them when it's impossible for them to go around.
