    I don't know whether this kind of thread was posted before, I'm a newbie.

    Everyone has pet peeves, I am wondering if any of you would like to share your biggest pet peeve. I'm not talking about serious stuff like homophobia or closed mindedness. Though important and definitely wrong in my book, I am looking for things a bit quirky.

    My biggest pet peeve is when I am in a store and the clerk/cashier or generally someone I don't know, calls me by a pet name/ term of endearment like "honey" or "sweetheart". Don't ask me why, but I just want to throttle them.

    Anyone wanna share?

    My pet peeve is when people are in my way and they don't need to be. Like the people in the supermarket that walk away from their cart and leave it in the middle of the aisle. Also the people who drive and stop and block the road, and don't look behind them and think they own the road. So I think I would classify them as absent minded people.

    Also the people who drive in the fast lane below the speed limit, or much slower than the flow of traffic.

    A dirty house, especially when the bathroom is a mess.

    She's a terrible attention whore Davey, she was quite often on four terrestial channels at once, on countdown she laughs like a drain whenever the host says something as simple as 'oh so you're from Scunthorpe,' she's allegedly a mathematician yet for money she appears on adverts giving people terrible advice about taking out loans, and her clothes are often badly fitting. She's the new Cheryl Baker.

    I hate it when someone uses up the toilet paper and then doesn't bother to replace it for the next person.

    I hate when people don't look out for animals on the road or take care of their pets.

    I hate when I'm trying to not be noticed and my boobs jiggle.

    Gender stereotyping, even in jokes. I can't stand most stand-up comedy for this reason.
