1) When someone blamed me for something I'm not guilty with, and

Re: Pet-peeve/s

Ok so I have a bunch of pet peeves

 

  1. when people get stuff on my books you know like they borrow a book and return it with bent pages and stains on the pages I hate that
  2. when people talk when I'm trying to concentrate like when your taking sat's and the proctor keeps talking to himself and anyone who will listen about his dog with cancer
  3. when people close to me lie it bothers me more than anything elas I mean why would you lie to your friends

Re: Pet-peeve/s

I agree with you, Lonna, (*nodding) I hate it too when somebody lie to me, especially when it's from a dear friend...

 

I have one more pet-peeve to add to my list...I just realized this today.

I hate it when people spell my name wrong...i know it sounds weird but it really does tick me off when somebody misspelled my name which happens most of the time.. :/

Re: Pet-peeve/s

I know what you mean about the whole name thing but I hate it even more when people call me the wrong name. Pretty much my whole life I have been called by my best friend's name which isn't so bad but then last year I was in a class with a girl named and brittany and the teacher constanly called me by her name! I hated it so much because we didn't even look alike (other than the color of our hair) and she even gave me brittany's report card once thinking it was me! (oh and btw, brittany is one of those little miss perfects and the teacher favored her so it basically felt like the teacher didn't know I even existed) 

 

Anyway some other things that bug me:

 

  1. when people try to take the credit when they didn't even do anything (especially when they do it right in front of my face)
  2. People who make the most irrating/gross sounds when they are sitting right next to you or behind you, that to me is just rude
  3. when people contiue to do irritating things even though you've told them stop like a million times

(p.s srry for the ranting :smileyhappy:)

everything you said plus:

4) When people make lie and a rumor about you to cover their own asses

5)People who can't be straightfoward and waste YOUR time just because they are cowards

Re: Pet-peeve/s

I agree with golden reader, it is really irritating when people continue to do things you've told them to stop..something that happens to me EVERYTIME..sometimes, I feel like I'd just burst from plain irritation, but then I have to hold  my temper...ugh..

Re: Pet-peeve/s

These might seem a little wierd but they drive me crazy...

 

*People that chew their gum loudly, I'm sorry but that chanking sound makes me want to punch them in the face

*People that wear shoes that do not go with their outfit.  Like wearing prom shoes with a jean skirt, drives me crazy.

*Having to listen to people kiss, wierd I know, but that smacking sound grosses me out.

*And people talking to me when I am nose deep in a book, can't  you tell that I am busy???

 

Those are my biggest:smileytongue:

It's all about the books!!!

Re: Pet-peeve/s

I haven't really seen people kissing except in movies (which is very rare) but just by imagining it makes me grimace..ugh..I agree with you on that one *nodding

 

and the last one too, I agree..especially when you're so intent in reading and then someone would come.. when people come to my room while I'm reading, I usually jumped in surprise...and that irritates me...

Re: Pet-peeve/s

Dude, when you're sitting on the bus, and you've got a seat to yourself, and then some idiot and her best friend come on and since they can't *BEAR* to be separated, they sit on TOP of you without even asking "Can I sit here?" And it's even more annoying when there's another open seat but they just don't wanna be separated.

 

Also, some swimming stuff, but you have to be a swimmer to understand.

Re: Pet-peeve/s

 

here are just some of mine

 

                         1.) once the teacher hands out the work and then countinues to talk and like 5 seconds after she shuts up talking about the outdoors or whatever she'll be like "you guys done"

                         2.) someone repeatedly interrupts me while doing stuff

                         3.) when one of my friends (not my best friend) says something to one of my other friends and no one else but them can here it and then go around for the rest of the day gloating it off

                         4.) in band when someone repeatedly plays the wrong note after the teacher has corrected them like ten times
