Pet Peeve


What is your Pet Peeve? What is the thing that annoys you but doesn’t annoy other people? Something that bothers you even if you know that it’s really not that important in the grand scheme of things.
My pet peeve is people being late. Like always late. Like they have a chronic disease and lateness is the symptom.

If I’m going to meet someone and they waltz up ten minutes late without a word of apology then that gets under my skin (“get under one’s skin” means to deeply annoy or bother).


Other pet peeves I have?

People who don’t cover their mouths when coughing.

People who check their phones while in conversation with you.

People who park poorly in parking lots.

I wouldn’t say I ‘hate’ this stuff, that’s too strong a word. Sure all of these things seem to annoy everyone to some degree, but they are more of a personal annoyance to me.

Like a pet. A very annoying pet.
