Your Pet Peeves

Updated on March 2, 2012

I am sure that this is one of those topics a lot of people can relate to, whether it is with their spouse, their children, or even their friends, sometimes even their coworkers. I just kept thinking about this all week and I was like, I am going to write on this, see what the others think and what they would say.

I know that have a few pet peeves that may be the same as others have. Most of them have to do with driving, others with what my family or friends do. I am sure that a few people can relate to some of these.

My first pet peeve, which can very annoying is when the drivers do not put on their turn signal. Yes, the sun is out but still put on that turn signal. This is something to do as courtesy towards the other drivers. As drivers we need to know what the other the person is planning to do. There are times when accidents are caused because one doesn't put on their turn signals and the other driver does not know the intention of what is on their minds. There are turn signals for a reason, please use them.

Tailgating, another one of my pet peeves. There is a reason they say we should be a few feet away from the other driver. If we are too close to the other driver in front and they have to make a really quick stop then the driver in the back hits the driver in the front, and who is to fault for this. The usual person who would get the ticket is the driver in the back. Tailgating can be very dangerous especially when it comes to bad weather, icy roads, slippery roads, not a good time to tailgate. It is never a good time to tailgate.

This one may not be a pet peeve that others have but I think it is. Not changing the toilet paper roll when it is already empty. Who likes it when they go use the restroom and right when they need the toilet they find an empty toilet paper roll. It would be nice to have it changed once there is no more.

I guess this is another one that may not be a big deal to others but when it comes to going out to eat with someone they should focus on the person that they are eating with instead of being on the phone all the time. I find it kind of disrespectful when one is trying to talk and the person you are with starts to text another person while the person in front is trying to talk. Be respectful towards the other person and wait to either talk or text until after the date or dinner.

Those are the main pet peeves that I have. Do you have any pet peeves that really get to you? Are they done by the ones you love or your close friends?

      I think at one point I have seen drivers put a newspaper and read it while driving, how can they focus on driving.

      The pet peeves you mentioned are also some of mine. The empty toilet paper roll is very annoying. long as the roads aren't treacherous, do the speed limit at least, get off your cell phone and pay attention and don't put your make-up on while you are driving. I've actually seen people reading while driving. How does that work!? Thanks for posting.

      Priscilla...I have a feeling you could come up with a longer list and include a few more peeves. I have a few ... hundred? Not really. LOL! Fun hub, thanks for sharing some of your peeves.

      Thanks for publishing this Hub. You've made some good observations about everyday life.

      I agree with every one of your pet peeves. I chuckled when I read what you said about the toilet paper rolls. It really is annoying when someone does that.
