    :LOL: that bugs me too! occasionally it gets ridiculous, and then I try to read out loud, and surprise, surprise, it makes absolutely no sense. :D

    my biggest pet peeve is when people talk loudly in the library. I know, it's sorta hard to remember to use your "inside voice", but seriously, when there are two guys behind me commenting on the latest gaming magazine, and going, "DUDE, look at this!" every five seconds, it becomes incredibly difficult to do my math homework. :LOL:

    Oww I hate people who type in that manner. Drives me insane.

    I can't write with an unsharpened pencil, if it's dull I can't deal. It's really pathetic, thank goodness for pens n mechanical pencils!

    Same here. I use mechanical pencils all the time but when I have to use a regular pencil for something (say for tests, etc) I bring like twenty perfectly sharpened pencils because as soon as it starts to get dull, I can't write with it--it looks sloppy

    oh wow i have many pet peeves!
    okay here we go:
    *people who are eating while im not and i can hear them chewing, even though it may be just swallowing, that sound of swallowing is soo annoying
    *radio stations how they say "you are in the middle of a thirty minute non stop music" hello you are stopping the music!UGH!
    *when ppl say no you were definatly thinking this or telling me what i was thinking or what imgoing to think...hello you are not in my brain
    *when you see a group of ppl talking to someone who is crying, you ask what is teh matter, they say nothing!well something is the matter, if you dont want to tell me thats fine, say im sorry but i dont want to tell you, please dont insult my intelligence bc i can see tears, im not that dumb!
    *pointing! i hate when ppl point
    *shoes above the ground, ona table! cant stand that!
    *when you are reading and someone comes up and says "what ya reading" "is it good" "what is it about" HELLO! im reading! leave me alone! and if you really wanted to know, you would look at the center bind or the cover!

    okay i'll stop there!LOL!

    Oh My God! Vicki.... ugh that is the most ANNOYING THING EVER! It makes me want to throw a plate at them! when people talk while i'm reading i go NUTS! and you know what.... they do all the time. Ok, so i'm reading a book and my mom starts talking about what's for dinner... #1. I. Am. Reading. I. Can't. Read. And. Talk. Sorry, that's something I just don't know how to do. and #2. I really don't care!

    and few others:

    1. People who bug you about something you really don't want to share... something personal and they keep insisting "ohhhh i promise i won't tell" and "pleeeease, telll meeee" ARGH!

    2. When people stare at me. It freaks me out and also makes me feel weird because it's like do i have something on my face or am i deformed?? huh..... :blink:

    About number 1... OMG When people do that to me, I want to hit them. It's like "if I wanted to tell you, I would have already!"
    And number 2... I can't STAND people staring at me either! Creepy Staring Boy did that all last year... :::shivers and has nightmares:::

    And what Vicki said about the crying "nothing's wrong" thing. My roommate did that all the time last year. She would sit in the hallway and cry, and when our other roommate and I would ask what was wrong, she'd say "nothing." Which made me wonder "so why the hell are you crying in the dorm hallway?!" But then again, she'd tell the girls across the hall what was wrong. But not her actual roommates. No wonder I want to live alone now. LoL

    Other pet peeves... drivers who don't use their signals when turning or changing lanes. It drives me absolutely NUTS. I mean, if you're gonna cut me off, at least have the courtesy to signal. Also... people who hum to themselves or make noises for no particular reason. My brother does it all the time... so does this annoying kid in my Japanese class. He was doing that whistling breathing thing in class the other day. I wanted to pummel him.

    Off topic, but I just realized that I'm violent. I always want to hit people... I don't usually, but still... I think it a lot. Hm... :unsure:

    I also hate it when I am reading( I read all the time ) and my brother comes in and turns the T.V. on. :mad:

    and Victoria King. The chewing sound drives me crazy too. I am just sitting at the table when I am done eating and I can hear like every single noise. It practically makes me start to twitch.

    My mom does that and I just try to ignore it but I can't. It gets LOUDER AND LOUDER. Eventually I just start to eat something so alll I can hear is my own chewing.

    :LOL: the way I deal with that is when someone goes, "Oh, hey, you know what?" I say, "No, I don't know what. I have never met what. It seems that everybody knows what but me! And hey, since you know what? I don't think I want to meet what."

    so that's my 'what' monologue. :D

    and the crying, I absolutely hate that! If you're not gonna let me help you, then quit making such a scene!!!!!!
    one thing I hate more though, is when someone is in pain or something, and everyone is crowding around them, say, "Oh, are you okay?" in sympathetic voices, and all they do, is just stand there, and they don't even try to help!!!! once my friend Cath had an asthma attack, and everyone was crowding around her, but no one was trying to do anything to make it stop, until I screamed for my friend to get her inhaler. grrrrrrrrrrrrr....

    another thing I hate is snobby salespeople. I just want to kick them all!! :LOL:
