My list of pet peeves stretches a mile long. A lot of it revolves around people who are lazy, have poor work ethic, or are emotional.

There's also a mile-long list of things I hate, but that's different from the pet peeve list.

Oh yeah, that's that group...People for the Eating of Tasty Animals, right? :lol:

And whilst we are on the vegetarian tangent, I get pretty annoyed when people start lecturing me on good sources of protein when they find out I'm a vegetarian. Fuck you, do you think I didn't know that? And the worst is when they actually tell me NOT to take protein supplements, but instead that I should 'be more flexible' and start eating chicken or something regularly. WTF?

Another one that gets to me is when people ask me if i have my genitalia pierced. It makes no sense at all, but that's one of the most common random questions I get.

hot, hot weather.

I hate bad coffee, too.

oily hair. just looks sloppy.

Trolls who enter forums just to hurt someone.

People who get bent out of shape just because a female says a musician is sexy. For gods sake, get a life! However, if I were a famous musician(even if i were 40 myself), I'd prefer 20 year old nubile girls panting after me than 40 year olds. Sorry, mom :( but, thats how guys think regardless of what that stupid Evangelion said. Us guys are basicly shallow. Actions speak louder than words! At least I am honest to admit it. Which brings me to my next pet peeve:

people who try to deny realities of life. Whitewash them. Life as beautiful as it is, is also undenibly cruel. At least to some folks. I hate it when people try to deny the shitty rotten attitudes that exist in society. Thats not bitterness. I'm just not blind.

I hate abusive people.
I think if it gets to a point where a guy wants to abuse a female he should just leave her alone. Incompatibility is not enough reason to hurt another.

Hangovers i hate.

Redneck food is disgusting except ham and fried potatoes. thats why I live on Pizza! :D

Preachy men and women who think they know it all turn me off. I get enough lectures at home.

High gas prices suck. now that I am pretty much taking care of myself I see why my mom and dad are raising so much hell over that!

Magazines that are mostly Ads. and those stupid subscribing cards all in mags that take up space and get in the way.

car dealers who sell Lemons to people. but, these people wind up being Lemon cream if you get what I mean?

My favourite definition is that:

Movies which have a stupid, or abrupt ending. And you are left saying, "Even I could have wriiten better!" The majority of TV-Movies fall into this category!

action movies where the plot goes something like this "the hero can a shoot a squierl's left testicle as he is diving to escape 20 plus machineguns aimed at him by "trained terrorists", he can make a bomb out of a spoon, a paper clip and two week old tuna fish, he retired from the CIA (usually) and gets sucked back in when [insert close family member] gets abductded, he then proceeds to kill all the terrorists, makes more collateral damage than the terrorsists intended, resigns from his agency based on its corruption and walks of into the sunset to live a quiete life...."

Totally agree! But that one is hard on me, since I hate mornings. The only thing that can really wake me up is the telephone though. But I will surely hang up if it´s some rude seller trying to make me buy credit cards at 8 in the morning...

Another pet-peeve. Back to driving. I live near the University of Central Florida. A major state university, behind only the University of Florida, and Florida State University in terms of the size of the student body. A lot of college students. No problem with that. However the two main roads near the college, Alafaya Trail, and University Boulevard (for those who may be semi-familiar with this area) are death zones because of all the college kids who THINK they can drive, but actually can't. They are always speeding up and down these streets in the brand new cars that Mommy and Daddy bought for them. It's fine to drive fast, I do, but not recklessly. Factor in the other half of the problem, old people who drive way to slow, and have no reflexes. You have emergency workers out with the "spatula" every night scraping someone off the road. I avoid this area like the plague, but everytime I have to go through there, I have to do something to avoid getting into an accident.

This a pet-peeve, people who can't drive.

oh, yeah--those Jehovah's Witness's. In my redneck neighborhood they are easily spotted because they usually drive some gasguzzling luxury car like a Cadellac, or Towncar, and its filled with people. I guess they figure safety in numbers! :lol: Anyway, I will usually take the literature&be polite, but NEVER let them in because they will talk&talk&talk for hours. :roll: My Ex did that once and the guy and 2 ladies stayed 3 hours! They were not that preachy though, but still one got the feeling they just wanted a hand-out or something. So now if I see one coming I just hide! :D If they catch me unaware, I just take the magazine(AWAKE), tell them thanks&close the door as quick as I can! :D

AWAKE is a pretty good mag. btw but some of it is pretty far-fetched! :shock:

I have actually turned the conversation on the Witnesses, asking them if they knew why their religion needs to recruit it's followers like a cult. I have told them that I was Jewish before, and that shut them up. Once I told them the truth, that I was Catholic, and proud of it. They started in on the Catholic religion and it was at that point I asked them to leave because I didn't invite them here to denegrate my faith.

I feel sorry for the kids who have to walk around in 100 degree heat, in black pants, long sleeved shirts, and a tie. While I feel that it is well within the parents right to bring their children up in whatever religion they wish, I can't help but feel that they made the wrong choice, LOL. Most of these kids run as fast as they can once they reach the age of 18.

Speaking of the Witnesses, here is another pet-peeve, being woken up before I'm ready on the weekends!!

People with sarcastic sense of humor---they say something is good, or compliment you even though you know they hate your guts&think you are stupid enough to believe their Comedic Lies. Actions DO speak louder than words! ;)

2--faced people who act as if they like you, but behind your back they are cutting your throat.

Its people like I mentioned above that really give rise to distrust&Cynicism(I plead guilty to Cism) in a person.

People who try to make a case for "goodness". From what I've saw&experienced, the truly "good" people never get what really they want or deserve. Its really how you Fit in and meet society's expectations&play the little games in society that count.
There is a saying: "Fat girls and Ugly girls are Good because they have no other choice." Thats cruel, but VERY true! No matter how sweet a girl is, she is considered Sexless by guys if she is in those categories. Untouchable. :roll:
Being good keeps a person from getting into trouble, but they miss LOTS of fun, too--even clean fun. So, being complimented on being a "good" person is like a backhanded remark. I'll take being a "Bad" person anyday because good girls never make history or anything else for that matter. ;)

The best way to live life is to appear good, yet be bad enough to enjoy life. By bad I do not mean to hurt people, though--I just mean bad enough not to care what so-called society says.

Ome thing I am is honest&I'm not a hypocrite at least, and no stupid blindfollower of ANYONE!
I'm just full of Cynicism, and most times my opinions are true. Actions always speak louder than words. I trust&believe in Nobody.
Does that make me a Whiner? o what if it does? I've earned the right to Whine if I want to--everyone has.

Off the soapbox, now I;m going think about the weekend&all the good bad things I can do. LOL From what I am reading, I probably have a more exciting life than Pam Anderson now :lol: Now, THATS a twist! :lol: Maybe Life is Fair after all ??? Maybe ???
