    People who call me when I text them.
    If I wanted to talk to you I would have called you.

    Me texting someone saying " going for a beer here if you wanna join us" , doesn't require you to call me with excuses why you can't make it. I don't care. it was an FYI.

    all the extra stuff they pile in the aisles of stores today. Stuff isn't on the shelf where you expect it, it's in a cardboard display in the middle of the aisles just waiting for my mother to wipe it out with her scooter (yes this has happened)

    I agree with you're pet peeves, Dibs. Bad grammar pisses me off to. So many people out their don't know how to write good. I've dumped many girls for that very reason (well, that and the fact that I was way too good for them).

    Default Your Pet Peeves

    Or as my hero George Carlin once said: "I don't have pet peeves, I have major psychotic fucking hatreds."

    Complaining is a natural human tick. Everyone does it multiple times daily, whether or not they realize it.

    That being said, what are some things that just plain irk the ever living shit out of you?

    Here's my first batch, which will no doubt be followed by several more batches.

    1. Proper driving etiquette.
    99% of the dumb fucks on the road have no common sense.
    If I had a nickel for every fuckface I was stuck behind who doesn't signal when turning, I'd be able to retire right now.
    And don't get me started on yielding properly.

    2. This whole idea that bike and bus lanes reduce traffic in densely populated areas.
    It does nothing of the kind & I know what the fuck I'm talking about considering I spent the first 25 years of my life in the most densely populated city in the United States of America, outside of the NYC/NJ metro area.
    Somerville, Massachusetts.
    4.1 square miles, 81,045 people according to the 2020 census, and it's probably closer to 90K with the amount of people who aren't on the books.

    3. The last decade or so obsession with modern country music.
    I'm 34 years old, and the vast majority of my peers are massive modern country fans.
    I use the term modern because most people wouldn't know actual country music if it smacked them in the face.
    All the current bullshit is is manufactured pop with hick accents.

    4. The auto parts industry and what it has become.
    It's the only job I've ever had.
    Going on 17 years, minus a couple short breaks in the middle, with one of the big 4 auto parts retailers/wholesalers.
    With every passing day, I consider more and more starting a new career.
    Finding good help in this industry has gotten exponentially worse with each passing year for at least the last 5 years.
    Gen Z doesn't give a flying shit about it, they're all either making money from YouTube or banging on camera.
    Pretty sure the only way I'd ever fully enjoy it again is if I go into business myself & make it an all-wholesale place.
    I don't have time for off the street geniuses who say "idk, it's outside" when I ask them for their year, make & model.

    5. What the concertgoing experience has become.
    Unless it's a band that's an absolute favorite or it's a band I haven't seen yet, I cannot be bothered with the vast majority of any large shows anymore.
    Being charged anything over $10 for parking, $15 for a fucking tallboy swill beer & $10 for a pretzel? Fuck outta here with that shit.
    Luckily, I've seen basically everyone I want to see at this point, so the big ones are few and far between now.
    That being said, I still thoroughly enjoy going to small venues that aren't affiliated with Ticketmaster or Live Nation.
    My favorite one is the Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, New Hampshire.
    700 capacity, perfect acoustics & a damn good in house kitchen with somewhat reasonable prices compared to larger venues.
    The only venues I actively enjoy going to are smaller, non-Live Nation affiliated ones.

    Fat Hispanic kids. Thatís my pet peeve. Fucking diabito whoís 7 and is wearing a shirt three sizes too small yet weighs more than me. Have some pride.

    Rules of the road. Learn them. If you drive a shitbox, donít get in the fast lane. And if youíre holding up traffic, get over.

    Black women ages 25-49. Just shut the hell up. Thereís a reason you canít keep a man. And it ainít them. You be all big and proud n shit, but when you cry in your pillow at night, I laugh.

    Decals on cars. Pretty sure none of us work at the Dutton ranch. So
    Why are trucks emblazoned with these? And why do we care if you can run a 13.3k race? Unless youíre gonna keep up with me at 70 mph, I could care less.

    I likeÖ. I likeÖ.I likeÖÖ* Insert the Sound of EVHís Guitar in the intro to Everybody Wants Some)*ÖÖI like this new thread.


    Fresh off the top of my head last night I was shopping for groceries at Walmart and noticed they clearly do not have a dress code.

    Now maybe Iím off base in this particular pet peeve. I know sandals are comfortable. I rarely wear them myself but know several folks who do. Usually in the summer at the beach or in the park or wherever.

    Now- Am I wrong to think wearing sandals with bare feet in a Grocery store is in bad form. Perhaps it was just the slob I noticed last night that twerked my annoyance because his feet were so pasty white & ugly. I donít think he had cut his toenails in at least a week or so. I just found the appearance off putting.

    There used to be a common expression in restaurants and other public places. No shirt. No Shoes. No service.

    Are sandals considered being shoes. These people are walking around in bare feet. Is this acceptable in restaurants and other public places.

    As I said maybe Iím wrong and itís really no big deal. I suppose my personal standards are too high. Either way itís my pet peeve of the day right now.

    Shrinkflation pisses me off. Have you noticed how thin tee shirts and jeans are now? You can see thru most Ts. Levi's would last 5 years now maybe 3 depends on how much you wear and wash.

    Kinda back to what Hberg is saying. Fucking PJs and flops to a store esp a girl or a woman. That is just asking to be a statistic for various things.

    My girlfriend as some know, is ex gangster essa girl as we would call them. She would allow her youngest dtr to wear that shit to a store. I said you do understand that is easy pickins for a fucking masher. She cant run in that shit to get away.

    Dudes that rock the same fat ass shit as well in public. Have some self worth you fat fuck.

    The messy bun on chicks is retarded looking and lazy looking. If you are working at home cleaning shit or what ever. I sort of get it. Walking out in public. Fuck off you look like an idiot.

    Cock suckers that wont even try to either take cart back to store or even find the cart shoot in lot. Fuck that lazy shit. Leaving that cart in lot next to car. Fuck you.

    Peeve number one! Fuckers that throw trash etc out the window on the street. Or just dumb shit wherever they want. Like dirty diapers in a lot. Fuck them.

    Oh and brown MnM's LOL. Out.

    I had a cart hit my car at Wally body shop wanted 500 plus to fix it. Walmart told me to pound sand. Lawyer said I'm on my own but I'll lose. So put the fucking carts back assholes.

    People who stop in the middle of the grocery aisle. Imo, it's like driving. Pull over to the right. I push the cart to the right or out of the way and walk the aisle to get what I need. On that same note, I frequent a big box grocery, and it's always jam-packed lines. Leave a space for others to get thru. I don't wanna have to say excuse me.

    People who don't pick up their dogs shit. Carry doggy bags.

    Annoying ringtones. I don't wanna hear Sheldon saying, "Penny, Penny," when a call comes in.

    Chopsticks. You're an American. Use a fork. They won't laugh at the Asian restaurant. Trust me.

    Pub crawls.

    Dudes who don't courtesy flush.
