WELL, shoot! I don't have any pet peeves. I guess I'm just too easy going!

Filling out this form, then losing it all when you hit the "back" button. Or, like just happened, when the "Page cannot be displayed" screen comes up.
The peeve I was going to type was people who don't use their turn signals... but this one is more pat to the moment. Heh, heh.

Yep, I can't stand that eating and talking in person or on the phone bit either. Another is a smoker that knows you don't allow smoking but will suck the last bit of a cancer stick out and then throw it down on your property.
Gum chewers that throw down gum ought to have to scrape it out of of the rear hooves of an donkey with the dodo's for eternity.
Folks that get in my space to talk bugs me about as much as sales folks that run up close and want to shake hands. They always have on too much stinky colonge on their hands. Years of hard work and playing music has given me the gift of a stout handshake. They usually don't want seconds.

Dang if I ain't gripy today.

Worse is people that will chew food while talking to you in person. If I wanna see a train wreck, I'll hang out by the tracks. If someone's going to chew food while talking to me,, they'll be talking to themself real quick.

You know, you don't see many people chewing gum any more. Also don't see many people any more that whistle. I do both. My wife started humming when she turned 60 (??). I been whistling all my life. I blame that on spending endless hours on a tractor pulling a plow when I was a kid. Nothing to do but whistle and shoot rats and rabbits running down the furrow in front of the tractor.
