What are your biggest pet peeves? Bad drivers, loud chewers, awful children?
These people are NOT on the fence. At all. This tweet got the ball rolling.
What is your biggest everyday pet peeve? For me, it's people who enter the elevator before you can get out.

Let the responses come rolling in!
1. Outta the way!
People who walk slow..doesn't matter: tourists, people on phones, my kids – makes my blood boil

People who take the last puff of a cigarette before they enter a building and blow the smoke out when they’re inside.

3. Move it!
People who don’t step forward when the line moves forward. I know intellectually it doesn’t mean you will reach the end of the line any sooner, but DAMMIT MOVE YOUR ASS! I want the satisfaction of being that much closer to my goal.

4. Don’t you dare…
People who cut in front of you and then instantly apply their brakes

5. You had all that time
People who wait until they get to the GODDAMN COUNTER to look at the menu up on the wall and decide what they want to order.

6. THIS IS MY #1
A person's assumption that everyone in the vicinity should listen to what they are listening to, whether music, TV, etc. I keep my podcast habit between me, the iPod, and the earbuds, and would feel very piggish if it was necessary to make other people listen.

7. All of ’em

8. Wall of humanity
Groups of people who walk three or four across very slowly in front of me on the sidewalk.

9. I’ll get back to you…at some point
People who call and instead of waiting for you to call them back, call again and send texts telling you to answer your phone

10. Were you raised in a barn?
People who don't close drawers and cabinets after opening them. (These are often the same people who don't put the cap on the toothpaste, close the bread bag or cereal box, replace the TP roll etc.)

11. Yeah, I got it
Coworkers who send me an email then immediately rush to my desk to tell me they’ve just sent me an email and want me to check my inbox to make sure I’ve received it. ?

12. Walk right into traffic
when I'm walking on the sidewalk and people (usually couples) walking in the opposite direction take up the whole sidewalk and won't move or walk single file to give me room. what am I supposed to do, walk into traffic??? one day I'm going to snap and fight someone over this

13. I’m not a fan of this either
People who stand next to their cart in an aisle at the store and then pretend like they don’t notice they are blocking the entire aisle when you try to get by
— Jaycee Brown (@airnjay) May 25, 2019
14. No touching
People who touch me. Shaking hands or high fives are ok because I have to physically consent to it. But patting me on the back or touching my arm gives me the creeps a little.
— Knautilus (@Knautilus) May 25, 2019
15. The Internets
When people say things incorrectly, misterm or mispronounce something. Like people who add an “s” to everything. “Paneras” “Nordstroms” etc. *cringe*
