Misused verbiage. If someone is going to use an obscure word, ensure that it's the correct one to use.

Taking food from my plate. I'm all for sharing, but there is a proper etiquette to this and spearing my scallops with your fork is not it!

Complimenting me by means of insulting someone else. Don't compare me to anyone else, especially if you are going to insult the other person or worse, me.

My biggest pet peeve is people who use bad grammar and spelling. Even your message has errors. I may not be perfect but at least I edit my messages before I send them. People who don't use the proper 'their', 'they're' or 'there' are very annoying. Then there are people who confuse 'our' with 'are' and the 'two', 'to' and 'too' confusion. There are more but I hope you understand. Most computers have a spell check and a grammar check that are easy to use.
When I am talking to people it peeves me when they claim to know everything yet know very little about the subject matter. Remember the saying, 'the louder they talk, the more they are wrong'. Too often this is true.
Another pet peeve is facial tissue (such as Kleenex) that doesn't come out of the box! The first several tissues are crammed in so tight, they get stuck. Then the tissues on the bottom of the box fall in and you have to dig for them. This is similar to napkins in many stores where the napkins are crammed into the holders like sardines :)
Okay, my time on the soap box is over.

PC lingo is near the top of my list. I know it's simply easier to wrote words like “boyfriend” as “bf” or “because” as “bc” but gee... Aside from that, the most annoying pet peeve for me has to be people who seem to think that “a lot” is spelled as ONE word “alot”.

Today's picks...

Women that get fake nails put on and then everything they do looks awkward. Seriously, if you can't type a memo without getting a cramp in your fingers, there's something wrong.

People that live in Northern Ontario and spend the winter complaining about how cold it is... duh... this is Northern Ontario!!!

Well... and yes, I see the irony in this... people that complain about everything. K... in my defence, this is a peeve thread I'm doing it in...

lol@Ontario...I mostly just don't even respond. If that is all they can get from my profile, that is if they read it, they don't deserve any effort from me cuz they didn't expend it from their end.

Go ahead and laugh ladies, but many first contacts from you ladies are also one or two word emails.
Heck, one lady only sent "coffee?" and that was it. Now sorry, but if you've read my profile and wish to communicate, a gramatically correct full sentence might get more attention.

I would then assume that if your sitting across the table from a person having a conversation, that you would stop them in mid sentence and ask them can they spell any of the words that just came out of their mouth.....Some of the greatest authors in the world couldnt spell worth a crap..but boy, could they hold a great conversation...and sell millions of books..You need to lighten up..

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
see what I mean lol..
My pet peeve did not mention alcohol at all or what any one "conciders or not conciders" a drug. My pet peeve was people that smoke dope and say on their profile "no" to the drugs question. The reality of it is they should say "Yes" or put "Recreational"
That would allow someone like me,to know right away, to skip over their profile, because they are into something that I am not, for what ever they believe in. Plain and Simple. Its really "Black and White".
Not here to debate what "you" consider or care about what the "Law States". It is what it is.
That is "my" Pet Peeve, but thank you so much Rain for proving my Pet Peeve is a valid one lol.

I understand folks and rather then post in a * lets **** together * thread , i just simply know what is good and what isnt good for me ...i sure dont need to post it in a thread dedicated to whining to know whats good for me ....though it does tell you a lot by reading it...lol venting angry single folks......seriously....this might be one reason =] anyways you 2...i look forward to your next run at me...until then...keep your stick on the ice and keep on top of your depends changing times

lol oh "Who" oops I mean "Rain". I said nothing about your spelling and I do not wear depends chuckle. Not that old yet. I am not ganging up on you at all. Just stating my Pet Peeve which is what the topic is.
You still make me chuckle just like you did 6 years ago. Your looking just as good looking as you were then too, I might add, and every bit as sarcastic too.
