We all have 'em, and I was kinda curious, what are your guys' pet peeves?

My biggest pet peeve is wet socks. I hate doing the dishes because I almost always manage to get my socks wet. I hate being squirted with water, too. If I'm in a room with someone else or multiple people, I have to close the door. I cannot stand open doors. I also get frustrated when I have a drink or some food and a person just invites themselves and drinks my drink and eats my food without asking.

So those are a few of mine. How bout you guys?

Noises people make with their mouths. Chewing, slurping, talking to babies, anything you might consider noise as opposed to speech or song.

Calling past 12 in the morning for anything other than emergencies. I don't see how people don't see it as rude for calling you in the middle of the night while you're sleeping for whatever random crap that they felt compelled with the need to dial your number for.

And I hate last-minute calls. I'm not the kind of person that's always ready for action, so when someone gives me like, 10 minutes to get ready to go somewhere, I get extremely pissed cause it most likely would take me longer than that to get ready (just to take a shower, fix my hair, find some clothes, finish any affairs I might have had, etc).

People who ask questions like "why is X down?" After its just been explained a dozen times.

My other major one is when people call you repeatedly at times they know you're busy.

People who type liek dis...nd liek. cnt use rel english.

I have unfriended family on FB because they typed like that, and would throw a shit fit if I told them I couldn't read a damn thing they just posted.( especially people who say they know how to actually type, but "its just my style")

Also, wet socks, getting anything on my face, especially water if I'm not in the shower, books not being even on a shelf, and a bunch of other stuff I can't even think of right now >.<

Vaguenessosityology. Like saying you're mad or sad or something and then just ignoring me when I ask why. It's worse when they get mad at you and don't tell you why. Like how the fuck am I suppose to react to that. What do I do. Why are you mad. And then they get more mad when you ask those things.

Also people nitpicking over the word "alot". It's not a word because it's not in the dictionary? Neither was "okay", maybe you should stop using that. Or how about the entire English language while you're at it, every single word is a made up word you twat. Bridezilla (http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/bridezilla) is an official word now and you have the cojones to still nitpick over "alot". Here's some more for good measure.

People use the word irony to either sound smart or like a hipster. Poetic justice sounds mounds more pretentious than irony. It implies some form of innate knowledge in the arts to understand it, when really it's just basically Karma and hypocrisy.

Wikipedia may be publicly edited, but it's not publicly accepted. You actually have to get your edits approved by admins or contributors most times, and they're pretty thorough. You also have to , and I quote, reference claims you make to reputable sources. It's not a bathroom stall wall and a marker, it's the Oxford dictionary.

It's surprising what manages to make it past them. As part of my degree we had to prepare a wiki article each, and several were published without a single reference yet haven't been updated since. Mine got torn to bits by a stroppy admin though :(

My personal experience with it is the wiki page for Lackadaisy, which was rejected and taken down multiple times because the references were all from first party sources (IE the site).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lackadaisy
Then there was that big chunk of stuff down there at the bottom that everyone skips past for them related articles. The references section. That happened. The page finally got accepted after all those refs were refd and the quotes were quoted. When you're dealing with the second most visited website on the entire internet you can't exactly keep the best lid on things, but they do a good enough job making sure people aren't making Hitler the new Pope.

Neither did %70 of the entire language a few hundred years ago. And our current grammar would be so monstrously wrong 200 years ago we wouldn't even be able to speak to them. A hundred years from now the language will, again, be entirely different; and everything in that link will probably be wrong. Alot is a portmanteau, and it's used enough to ennote it a spot, and certainly more than Bridezilla. Grammar and language are not set in stone, and in fact if they are, then that language is dead. Change in grammar and language are healthy and productive, and it happens so much we ascribe series of books to big enough to crush a man's skull to document it all. The exception is hieratic, demotic, and other types of lographs like Sumarian which changed so gradually it kinda seemed like they were dead. Oh that's another thing; we went through this exact same thing, the thing about "alot", with "kinda". And hafta. And even friggin "maybe", because it was an ellipses of "it may be". Language ascribes to the highest common denomination, not the lowest common editor, it always has been, it always will be, it's pretty much the definition of a language.


It is possible to imagine numerous potential scenarios by which language might have evolved as a purely biological adaptation. However, in her book The Meme Machine, Susan Blackmore reveals a different theory of language evolution: she proposes that it evolved for the sake of memes, not as an adaptation for the benefit of genes.
Blackmore explains that memes first came into existence with the advent of true imitation in humans, which allowed memes to spread through populations. Recalling that fecundity, or proudction of new copies, is essential to a replicator, she proposes that language came into existence as a mechanism for improving the fecundity of memes. Sound transmission has many advantages for the purpose - sounds can be heard by multiple listeners and can be used even at night. After sound transmission (proto-language) came into existence, the "digitalization" of language into discrete words arose as a mechanism for ensuring meme fidelity, or lack of errors in the new copies. She explains that those alterations that produce the most copies of the highest fidelity will be those that predominate, thus improving the language.
Blackmore goes on to suggest that grammar was an adaptation to improve the fecundity and fidelity of existing memes; its recursive structure then provided the framework for the development of more complex memes, which then favored the existence of more complex grammar, etc. in a self-sustaining process. Furthermore, language then began to exert pressure on the genes, creating a selection pressure toward bigger brains that are better at language. If people prefer to mate with those possessing the best or most memes, then the genes that allowed those people to be good meme-spreaders will be differentially transmitted into the next generation. This process again leads to a self-catalytic process of brain evolution that places a strong survival and reproductive advantage on those most capable of meme transmission.
Finally, Blackmore believes that language is an unavoidable result of the existence of memes, which follow naturally from the ability to imitate (an ability that is, surprisingly, realized in very few species). She states, "verbal language is almost an inevitable result of memetic selection. First, sounds are a good candidate for high-fecundity transmission of behaviour. Second, words are an obvious way to digitise the the process and so increase its fidelity. Third, grammar is a next step for increasing fidelity and fecundity yet again, and all of these will aid memorability and hence longevity" (p.105).

If you're wondering about meme it means memetics.

It's not that it doesn't exist. It's an incorrect version of a word that already exists. It's like when someone says "Half too" instead of "have to". Just because something is now a word doesn't mean you can freely fuck up the english language. It's fucked as it is.

- People dicking around in lines and just generally being incompetent about knowing how to pay for things, especially when there is a long one that I've already been standing in it for like 30 minutes. No one cares about your 50 cents off coupon! You should have already had it out! GO!!
- Text speech.
- Emos and scene kids as a whole. Teenybopper "Hot Topic goths," as well.
- Dogs as a whole.
- Babies as a whole.
- Whiny or bratty children.
- When people blast their music way too loud in their car, and you can clearly hear every word or note of it. Moreso, if it's just a bunch of thumping garbage.
- Dubstep.
- Screamo.
- Country music.
- "Random!! XD" types.
- People who can't take critique or general negativity thrown their way.
- "Gamur gurlz."
- Vegetarians / vegans who bitch about other people using / eating animal products.
- Anti-abortion arguments.
- People who turn their entire identity into a single interest or trait of who they are.
- People who act like you attacked them, personally, when you put down one of their likes / interests / something that applies to them but isn't necessarily about them.

And a ton of other stuff.

Oh man, this is a great big one for me. Especially when it's relatively quiet and it's the only thing you can focus on.

Others of mine:
~People touching my stuff, in most any capacity. I am a highly possessive person.
~Chatspeak where it doesn't belong and Internet references/memes where they don't belong, i.e. anywhere outside the Internet.
~Room-temperature Monsters. They have to be cold, dammit!
~When people use numerous reasons to get out of something or procrastinate, especially when it's unrelated.
~General lack of basic manners and common courtesy, such as saying "Excuse me" after belching loudly.
~Oh, and people with too many pet peeves. Life is too short to be mad at every little thing, so lighten up!

I hate.......*whispers slowly* HATE. People at walmart.
I dunno what it is but where I live, walking into walmart is like winning a license to simultaneously not give a shit and not pay attention. I've had people stand in lines all the way out to the cloths and jewelry and ignore me when I try to cross the line to get by. People are totally oblivious when the enter and exit isles and almost everywhere else. just not when your trying to get a product from an isle. It makes me want to punch them, their grandma, their children and their newborn puppies in the face with my keyes.

Another thing is people that are slow moving in hallways and at wallmart. Especially when they line up so you cant get around them. And o...m...g...they act so offended when you go around them, even if its not with a pissed off look and jogging. I've pushed people out of the way when I was still in school. I had classes all the way across campus and people just walk slowly in lines in the hallways.

- i do not like when people are late
more specifically when theyre late to something important or everyone else is waiting on them and they dont have any other time to do w/e they wanted to do

- also when someone promises youre going to go somewhere and do something and they dont follow through and deny they made the promise

- when people dont try new things and prefer to stay in their little bubble
eg they wont try new foods or wont go anywhere new but mostly new foods

- and i dont think anything makes me more mad than when im drawing and im interrupted
its really difficult for me to sit down and draw and when i do and there are like 10 people bothering me i get on the verge of yelling and i hardly ever yell

Most of my pet peeves are rather nerd specific, but I'm gonna be a little more general here.

- My first two years of college. Because the year I've had, and the year coming up, is mostly retaking classes I already took in high school.
- Weed Culture
- People who make a point of telling you how tough they are or what martial skill they have. I do not care, and I'm not going to stab you with the balisong I'm flicking around. So stop telling me how many different ways you could disarm me without a weapon.
- Greek Life. I don't get it.
- Earbuds. One always blows out, leaving me with one functioning bud. I swear to go I can't make a pair last more than four months.

My personal pet peeve is when people mistake Shakespearean English for old English. Shakespeare spoke early modern english and while his grammar is a bit fuzzy due to being written for plays, the language itself is still close enough that a dictionary will tell you what you need to know.

Old english is like an entirely different language. The vowels are all pronounced differently, you have different letters in there. Grammar is all fucked up depending on how someone felt that day. It's more ending based than placement based.
When I hear people complain about Shakespeare and how they don't read old english I want to slap them upside the head. No you lazy twat, you're just not interested in taking the time to learn dialectical differences.

Double standards. You know, when guys are applauded for being a slut, but most women are shunned for it and things like that. When people chew with their mouth open and talk with their mouth full... Just disgusting. When people tell me what to do. Suggestions are fine and asking is wonderful, but saying "go do this" will get you ignored or an attitude. And when you disagree with someone and they take it so personally! This is mostly with my mom... When people try to make you change even though they have grown up with you and/or raised you (my mom, once again).

My top 5 Pet Peeves:

1. Popufurs that always beg for things and don't try to actually do anything about their life situation.

2. Disney pop stars like One Direction or other popuartists like Justin Bieber who are clearly frauds/fakes.
-Oh and the equally stupid rabid fans/followers-

3. Repetitive, overplayed pop music that people don't bother to try and change.

4. Ricers, who don't know what the hell they are doing and make their import look ugly as hell and put real tuners to shame.

5. Customers who have nothing better to be doing then to give you a hard time in the work place even though the issue is nothing you can handle.
