Top 5 Pet Peeves...

Here are mine:

1) Homophobes
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
2) Talking during movies
3) Chewing with your mouth open
4) Checking other people out on a date
5) Insane amounts of body hair

EDIT: Changed my #1. I always saw "Pet peeves" as a little thing that bothered you. But since other people in this thread see it otherwise, I'll put #1 in there and let the other 4 pale in comparison.

1) Certain grammatical or usage errors, such as "discrete" for "discreet"
2) People who let their children run wild and annoy everyone around them
3) People who treat pets like property instead of family
4) People who distort religion to cloak their prejudices
5) Labels that won't peel off cleanly

(3) People who act like they care but they really don't care, or they care only a little and they are overplaying the amount of caring or who care but not enough to justify their actions or who act like they don't care when in fact they really care and you know it but they're trying to play it off like you don't know
(4) People who make lists

That's a good one. Like "Kid's Korner" for a nursery school.

I only have one and it annoys me to no end. It's the "to each his own", "different strokes for different folks", "you can't account for taste" (and all other variations thereof) idiotic PC nonsense. Ever heard of developing taste?. Saddly, because people are allergic to effort and because god forbid we should offend anyone, society is slowly trying to eliminate the notion of taste. Taste is dying...

"Taste takes effort, taste is a conquest. Taste is the fundamental quality that summarizes all other qualities. Taste is the quintessence of intelligence." (Lautréamont)

Pompous, but you get the point.

3. Drunks

1. The word "bling" and its acceptance in the mainstream media and news. This word cannot die soon enough.
2. People who expect things without putting any effort into obtaining said things.
3. People who drive slow in the fast lane.
4. People who not only eat with their mouth open, but also try to hold a conversation with food in their mouth.
5. People who hold conversations with their friends during concerts. Why did you buy a ticket if you weren't going to pay attention to the band?
