    What is your biggest pet peeve?

    Are a lot of things in the world that irritate us. There are things that absolutely drives us crazy. I'm just wondering if other people's pet peeves are similar to mine.

    I get annoyed by people who spell things incorrectly on the internet. Most browsers come with a spell check and there are many add-ons and plugins that you can download to correct your spelling for you. Google is just one tab away so if you aren't sure you can type in something close and google should be able to figure it out.

    I also get annoyed by people who use text speak on the internet. This isn't the 90's where every character in a text message mattered. You have a whole keyboard so it's actually harder to type that way.

    Then there are people who type in all capital letters to get their message across. In what English class did they teach you to do that?

    Okay, rant over. Thank you for listening.

    People who have large families in post-modern 21st century, computerized societies.  That is beyond unreasonable & illogical, even into the realm of total asininity.  Really, what in the hell for? 1-2 children are enough for parents to raise effectively & to provide them w/opportunities, not just the mere rudiments & a poverty lifestyle.
    Parents who have large families have children who are impoverished & bereft of educational & cultural opportunities.  Such children oftentimes go to bed hungry as there isn't enough food in the home.  Large families oftentimes depend upon outside charities to keep them socioeconomically afloat.  Why would parents subject their children to this because of their selfish, stupid, mindless breeding!

    Studies show that children from large families have no books & other forms of intellectual stimulation in the home.  There is no parental interaction.  Children raise themselves & each other.  There is also child neglect in large families. Children in large families aren't as intellectual apt & acute as those from small families.  One can describe them as intellectually backwards because there is little or no adult interaction but only interaction w/other children. 

    Any parent who has a large family is really totally bereft of intelligence.  Intelligent parents know that children from small families live better & have myriad educational & socioeconomic opportunities while children from large families are lucky if they complete high school, if that.  They will be consigned to low paying, dead end jobs, thus continuing the cycle of poverty for yet another generation.  They will also have large families themselves & their descendants will be as impoverished as they are.

    My pet peeve is-People who never were taught to be respectful to others. It causes a chain reaction for a whole new generation of bullies to get their kicks by tormenting those around them.

      Hi Diana
      I agree with you. I also think it a lack of self-respect for theme self. If you don't respect yourself, how will you know to respect others.
