    JonMikal and I were discussing pet peeves the other night... out of curiosity, I think it would be interesting to hear what everyone's biggest annoyances are.

    My biggest pet peeve is when someone doesn't follow through on what they say... in other words, unreliable people.

    Hmm... well, for one, I can't stand loud eaters. I get so irritated when I'm stuck in the car or next to someone that just doesn't know how to keep their mastication to themselves. I'll get back to you later after I make a list... :lol:

    Lol you must've read my mind. I was thinkin of makin this list on here today :lol:

    Ppl who crunch the hell outta their food, man that sound is like fingernails down a chalkboard to me.

    Threads such as 'No Word Association' and '(Insert # here) Word Story' threads. It was ok the first time around, for a short while, but they just keep being dragged up. We cant be that hard up for topics to chat about ? [​IMG]
    ( I might be the only one thats irked by those threads, thats just my personal peeve anyway ... ).

    Instances where, for example, a show such as 'Cheaters' ( a show involving real couples who catch the other half cheating on them and confront them) being aired, followed immediantly by an ad for a dating agency specifically aimed at attached adults.They ask for ppl who are 'bored in their relationship' and want to find someone 'on the side'. After watching the heartbreak of someone catching their partner cheating on the show, I was flabbergasted by this ad's timing in most of its adbreaks. What THE ......?
    A lot of our media and tv programmers, in this day and age, are just beyond comprehension to me :scratch: .
    I would happily turn the tv off permanently but my b/f wouldnt do without it.

    Two faced people. Ones who tell you one thing and then tell other people something else. They don't realise that sometimes it finds its way of coming back to you and you end up knowing what type of person they really are. Although that's got a slight humorous edge to it as well.

    Oh, and people who tell me what to think instead of telling me their opinion and letting me have mine. The ones who demand you see things their way.

    Ads depicting children as being wise....man that is so old! Bar stool critics who are always putting others down and yet do nothing themselves to warrent any criticism. People who continually judge other people by their appearance or their first encounter. Jeeze I can go on and on.
