I know there's many small, insignificant things that irritate some more than others.
Let's hear yours.

One of mine is all capital letters. When I come across a post with all caps, I just close it and go to another one. It is too much trouble to try to separate the words and get a meaning out of it.

What's your pet peeves??

Supposedly when pronounced suposably is the big one. Mispronunciation on a whole makes me crazy. I wholly agree with the all caps thing. I work in customer service online, so the entirety of my job is in text. All caps make me feel.. well .. less than helpful Wink

Bad drivers in general, but driving while on the phone or texting REALLY gets to me.  Makes me want to run them off the road and smash the phone into tiny little pieces.  It's dangerous enough on the road without added distractions.  So, unless you're a world-famous brain surgeon consulting my case, or talking someone through disarming a nuclear warhead about to detonate in my backyard, HANG UP AND DRIVE!

Yep drivers... oh um.... I mean people that think they are drivers

Slow down before getting into the left turn lane (or any turn lane) OR ignore the turn lane completely

Slowing down to 4 or 5 mph to make a right turn.... geee, I can do it at 20 mph and I drive an SUV

Drive 15 mph below the speed limit.

Speed up when you go to pass them

And the list goes on and on and on

People with a handicap placard that obviously aren't using the spot close to the store.Or the handicapped person staying in the car and someone perfectly healthy going into the store.And then seeing someone obviously meant for that spot parking far away to save the space for someone more needy.

People who insist on text messaging while driving. I just about called the cops on a guy I surely thought was drunk yesterday, weaving back and forth, scaring the daylights outta everyone around, traffic slowing for this fool. He finally pulled all the way over to the right lane and I could see he was texting away, in his own lil idiotic world!

Oh yeah, JP, that was a nice quip about the pet named "Peeve".  It gotta a mental grin out of me  grin

Now to be fair, there are those with handicap stickers/tags that are perfectly capable of walking. In fact, in some cases I know of, they really need the exercise. And then there are a few I know of that park in the space, walk to the back of the vehicle and unload one of those riding machines and ride it into the store.

OH! And those places for pregnant women. Isn't walking a good thing in most of those cases? OR  the new mom?!?!? What's up with that? What if the Dad takes the new born?? Where does he park?

AND while on the  soapbox you really don't know the intent of that person that parked there and ran into the store. There could be a family emergency. Baby at home screaming its head off cause they are out of formula and need it quick.

People who speed up as soon as I try to pass, forcing me to speed up through the whole passing lane to finally get enough speed to sneak by them at last minute.  angry angry

 tongue

Seriously, I do get very aggravated when on the highway I try to pass somebody and then as soon as I start passing they speed up and soon I either need to eat crow and just get behind them going slow or speed up to 15 - 20 mph over the speed limit to get by them and when I do finally get by them and adjust my speed to the limit or slightly over then I see them mosey past only to get in front of me and slow back down to their original speed AAUUGGGGGHH!!

I agree with Buzzbee on the handicap parking but my biggest peeve is people who think that our government owes them something. In particular people who are on disability / welfare who shouldn't be.  I know there are people who really can not work and need help. But I know a lot of people that could work but don't want to so they get SSI or some other form of disability because of "mental breakdowns" or a bogus medical diagnosis.  I think that unless you are truly unable to do anything or are retirement age you should have to work for any type of government hand out.  I mean... most people can seal up envelopes that need sent out / put stamps on envelopes / do other simple jobs. I think that if we made everyone do something for their $$ then there would be a lot more people at least attempting to get jobs and not living off the system.

Being a person with a handicapped placard I hate those people who think it's okay to park in the wheelchair loading/unloading area next to/between the handicapped parking stalls.  Or the guy who purposely walks in front of you while you're obviously turning into a parking stall (all the handicapped ones were full) then bang on your hood as if they had the right of way.

Have you ever been riding with an idiot who is constantly complaining about the guy/gal in front of them holding up the show when its someone five cars up while they ride their bumper like they will get somewhere faster?  You tell your self you will never ride with this person again but you do.  Buy the time you get out of the car their lucky if the floor board is not dragging on the road from you constantly doing leg squats while squeezing the door handle like your getting surgery without amnesia.
