Default Pet Peeves

A take on the whats pissing you off thread. A lot of things cause irritation or eye rolls without angering to the point of pissing one off.

Thing 1: people and holding doors. People open a door outwards (away from them) and do not cross through the threshold. Instead, they hold the door open with one arm closer to the hinges. This means you now have to try and navigate the narrow entrance without brushing against them, and it is an awkward invasion of personal space. Or, you are ahead of them and they force you to stop so they can then walk ahead of you to open the door - usually doing the former action. It's a pet peeve because it halts my progress/invades my space - and my arms are not broken or full. I am capable of doing it myself.

Thing 2: company's requiring you to enter your full mailing address upon applying for a job. With the invention of google map streetview, recruiters and potential employers now have the ability to look at my house and neighbourhood and prejudge me. Now, i live in an ok area, but have lived in less nice places. I wonder how many interviews are won or lost because of that judgement. Once you recieve an offer, sure. But why do you need my full address when i am merely applying for consideration for a position? Old habits of contacting people, perhaps...but seems out of place now.

1) People that pronounce the word nuclear as nuke-you-ler. The US had a certain former president that did this a lot (way to represent!) You'd think someone who graduated from Yale would be capable of correctly pronouncing a 3-syllable word in his own native language. Also people who say "warsh" instead of "wash." I like hearing different accents, but pronouncing letters that aren't even there just seems wrong.

2) People that feel a pathological need to Reply All to big group texts and use up the tiny amount of storage on the message inbox of my non-smart phone with a plethora of pithy comments like "K," "LOL," or an emoji. Or something TMI like "We can't come because Emma has this weird toe fungus and can't wear socks for a week." Thanks for sharing! Sometimes it's nice to know who's coming to an event, but I don't really need 10 inane replies to a simple text like "Tonight's meeting is cancelled." Maybe the person who sent the message would like to confirm that it was received (in which case there's a Reply Sender option!), but the rest of us just don't care.

When I'm trying to buy groceries at the store and people take their baskets with them wherever they go.

"I want cheese, so im going to go to this tiny cheese section and take the whole thing up with my cart". Ya know, instead of moving the cart back 5 feet and walking up to the fucking cheese aisle.

OH MY GOD IM RAGING JUST TYPING THIS

I am not infrequently guilty of this, and I really have no excuse because my father worked in the nuclear industry! "Nuclear" just doesn't sound right to my tongue, so if I'm not paying attention apparently I abuse it to a more classic english flow -- i.e. 'newcewlar'

Huh, taking the trolley around everywhere with you is the accepted practise over here. If you leave your trolley somewhere at the end of an aisle or something then it will either get taken away or just really piss everybody off.

It's a bloody nuisance here too. But, because the aisles in the shops are often barely wide enough for two people plus trolley anyhow, it's even more of a nuisance to just abandon your trolley somewhere.

That said, If you can't decide which of the 500 identical packets of mild white cheddar you want, do a lap or something while you dither so other people can get their cheese.

...who is buying mild white cheddar, anyway? Extra mature is obviously the way to go!

I think the worst thing about people with trolleys is when they push them in front of the reduced section and then literally nobody else can get near it.

I cannot stay at someone else's place. Ever. If I visit I need my hotel room that I have ownership or rentalship of. Visit for all day, OK but not staying in a guest bedroom or anything. Maybe it's a control issue or a need for assured privacy if I desire.

Also it is very hard to dispose of the corpses without total privacy...

I'm curious whether you ever go camping? You could always have your own tent!

Having a nearby woods and ground covered with leaf litter would also be convenient for any disposal issues that may arise.

I always thought this usage was peculiar to Mexican-Americans in East Los Angeles. Apparently it's found a home on the East Coast, too. Another quirk of speech from East LA, which I found more humorous than peevish, was using the word "little" as an intensifier for the word "small", as in "I just want a little small one."

I've never gone camping, no. My own tent would suffice I guess. Maybe I could stay in a guest room if I brought a tent! Thanks for the idea! Leaf cover is too short term, proper disposal requires power tools and plastic sheeting. Maybe cement.

I'm glad you mentioned this, or I probably would have been one of the guilty parties. But I'm going to blame it on a certain Hanna-Barbera cartoon I grew up watching.

You've never gone camping?! You should! It's fun (with the right people) and a great opportunity to explore the possibilities of campfire cooking. I may go add this to the list of things-I-want-to-do-with-everyone-if-the-world-were-no-object thread.

Although you're starting to scare me.

Thanks for the explanation, lucca! That would bug me, too, but I don't recall ever hearing anyone actually say that.

Either it's not as prevalent in the places I've lived, or else I've been in a state of blissful oblivion.

I don't know about where y'all shop, but the aisles are pretty wide here so getting around the buggies isn't too big of a deal. I know my wife takes her buggy everywhere with her because she has her purse sitting right in the child seat part and it's usually open so she can sift through her coupons and she doesn't want to leave it unattended.

Total agreement with you about everything except the corpse disposal. As I have gotten older I no longer like to stay with other people. I'd much rather get my own room for some privacy and space.

On the body disposal though, it's much easier to go to a wetland marsh around here as this area is lousy with alligators. They'll take care of your evidence destroying needs.

Unless you are speaking of a place where you get coal or gold, the word is MINE no "S".

I am totally guilty of this infraction.

I am this way with transportation. I need the ability to flee at any moment's time! I can't do carpooling or even take a friend's car somewhere.

Another one for me is when people say "weary" when they mean "wary". It annoys the hell out of me for some reason. "We need to be weary of that" - Those people refuse to accept that weary means tired, not cautious.

I also have "chemical hypersensitivity" - aka I am allergic to perfumes and other chemicals (experience flushes all the way up to severe rashes and hard time breathing). When I tell people they still wear it but say, "But I am only wearing a little, you should be fine!!" and I'm like..."Oh good - let me tell the people allergic to nuts that its ok, I only gave them a 'little bit of nuts'"!

Xy is threatening me here! I must be vigilant and weary of her ill intent.
