    Reminds me of when I had a bad cold in boot camp. I had to blow my nose at the table and I got a nasty comment from another recruit about it. It's not like I had a choice. Drill instructors tend to frown on recruits excusing themselves from the table! Anyway, under normal circumstances I would certainly agree with you.
    I have so many pet peeves I don't know where to begin. Most of them involve the behaviors of rude and inconsiderate people. The first thing that comes to mind is chewing gum. I hate it when people dispose of it improperly. I also hate seeing people chew it in a loud, jaw smacking manner. I saw a bank teller do that the other day. How unprofessional.

    This is near the top of my list, as well. Also when people spit on the sidewalk. YUCK.

    Smokers who throw their butts out the window for someone else to clean up.

    Drivers who go too slow, don't use the turn signal, and stop traffic because they are in the wrong lane and don't want to continue and turn around just inconvenience others.

    Rude People, drunks, annyoing children in restaurants.

    Anyone who abuses animals (should be given a death sentence).

    People who pick their noses while driving, Hello I can see you!!! Gross pig!!!!

    CELL PHONES...
    Cell phones in restaurants.
    Why do some people who use them have to be so loud and rude? The language used in public place is so horrible.
    Cell phones while driving....My husband's truck got hit ($4,900 damage ) by teen driver last week who was gabbing away and didn't realize she was running a stop sign..

    Oh, don't get me started!!

    Here's a couple:

    Bathroom pigs-I hate to go into the bathroom and find the majority of the toilets have pee on their seat, hair, peices of flotsam such as toilet paper, or even nastier stuff like blood (eeeuuuwww). It's bad enough in public, but it's bad at work. Like hello, we're all adult professional women who work together! How hard is it to first, go without making a *mess*, and second to take a second and a half to look when you flush and if you notice a drop of something just freaking wipe it up! I hate having to wipe up other people's mess all the time!! Argh!!

    Then there's bad drivers....tailgaters, people who speed (I mean, nobody goes even close to the speed limit, people really cruise!), people who drive through parking lots any which way they want without looking, people who change lanes without looking---need I go on? I think not!

    That's all for now, lest I be here all night!

    My biggest pet peeve is people who try to hard to be nice when you know that they really want to be "##>#? I would rather that they be grouchy and real than fake.

    My other one, there is this receptionist at work that smacks gum on the phone---loudly---I always want to yell on the phone---get that ----- out of your mouth!!!!

    Or,
    How about the smart alec kid at McDonalds that act like they are doing you a favor by giving you the food---HELLO I am paying your wages!!!

    OH,
    I could go on and on and on and on!

    Man.....so many.....
    People who take shopping carts home and then leave them on the street.
    People who talk on cell phones and drive...
    People who pay money to go to a show and then talk through the whole thing.
    People who kick the back of my chair...(ie...in movie theaters).
    People who go though the 9 items or less line in the supermarket with like 20 items...
    I could go on and on and on...laffs

    Mine - have you ever dashed into an empty elevator JUUUUST before the doors closed and then breathed in only to find that some previous occupant had left an invisble reminder of digested dinner?

    Bad enough to spend the rest of the ride trying not to breathe and hoping your smell filters kick back in frantically waving your hands to try to circulate the smell out of there. My luck always holds true - the door ALWAYS opens onto a crowd of people and there you are cought with a red face from holding your breath in the middle of waving away stink! You squeak "It wasn't ME! but you just know - they ain't gonna believe you!!!

    People who think the word MERGE, means stop!
    People who don't know the inside land is for faster moving traffic

    I guess this says I have road rage, huh?
