Pet Peeves

We all have pet peeves – those little irritating things to which we are peculiarly sensitive or at least irritate us more than they do our contemporaries. Whether its things your brothers do, or complete strangers do, they make your blood boil and have you leaving the room – immediately.

I have some pretty heavy RANDOM pet peeves. I put this list together, not at all claiming that I am a perfect citizen of the Republic, but to just get some things off my chest about what makes me extremely annoyed. I can think of a gazillion things that I’m sure get on other people’s nerves, too. You can comment here and there, but let me know what your pet peeves are!
