I share LongHairedLady's peeve -- people who don't acknowledge favors or even little niceties.  There are many types of examples, but one that annoys me is when someone's walking right behind you, you go to a door (front entrance of an apartment building, or door of a store or restaurant, etc.), and you hold the door open for them either after you've gone through, or even before -- and they say absolutely nothing.  Not even mumble a "thanks".
 

This one really gets my goat.  I've actually said "your welcome!" after someone didn't thank me.  Or sometimes when there are two doors in a row going into a building, if I didn't get a thank you after holding the first door, I just let it close in their face with the second door.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11  

Thanks for those tips.

Being ill. Im fed up and seriously hacked off. If i didnt have a conscious i'd be kicking cats and smashing holes in walls. Can hardly do anything unless i want to collapse, spend 10 minutes catching my breathe and drink water.

My condolences too for your illness.  I've had chronic pain and stiffness of a sort.  It sucks.  At least we can commiserate more or less.

Talking of neighbours, I never had any up until a few months ago and I loved it. Now, I've got a young family on one side and an older couple who must be going deaf on the other side. The reason I say that is because you can hear their telly as clear as if it were on in your house. Add onto that the whiney kid on the other side and their noisy dog, and the arguments at 6am. Aaahh! I don't like having neighbours at all!

Thinking of something else that got on my nerves. My mom broke the handle on the fridge yesterday so we have to open it from the top now. Problem is, I can't reach the top so I can't get in the fridge. Cue more mean height-related jokes :(

A few years back i would often stay over in a friends flat in town which was right next door to a drug taker. Blaring music every night thru walls that were paper thin, people coming and going banging doors at all hours in the night, arguements, shouting, him coming to the door and asking for money, kitchen foil, all sorts. Just horrendous. Thankfully my friend moved elsewhere a year or so later to a much quieter area - i pity whoever moved in next door to that guy afterwards.

I do love the quiet of the country. Everyone knows each other and is very pleasant whilst not looking to become the new Ramsey Street (for those who dont know thats the name of the street in the Australia soup 'Neighbours&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10.

I like the neighbors I have now, not so much the ones I grew up with. I've lived here almost three years and most of my neighbors keep to themselves. The neighborhood I grew up in was a typical working class neighborhood and you really couldn't pick. There were some great ones and there were some....not so great ones. But, I don't think I could live in the country or least while I'm living in the south. I have to be near civilization and minimum of southern accents. 

Speaking of which: I hate redneck southern accents. I have a mild southern accent. My parents are not from the south nor were many of my friends that I grew up with. I hate when people do interpretations of southern accents on tv. We don't all speak like that. I can't watch True Blood because of this. Redneck accents and southern accents on tv are like nails on a chalk board to me.

Ironically, I like them and that maybe because they're making fun of the culture. Like there is this one joke I think of frequently "If your house is attached to a trailer....you might be a red neck" because oddly enough I have seen that in real life.

I hate sinks where the faucet is way too close to the back of the sink. My hand always bumps against the back and it's annoying.

I live in a sort of duplex-like flat and my neighbours have noisy dogs and the kettle is always on the boil... I retaliate by playing Beatle tracks with booming sound woofers.

I hate it when people are bleating in my ear while I'm trying to listen to something. 

Like yesterday, we went to a talentshow and one guy did cabaret and my mom just talked an talked..

And my ears aren't already the best ears so I already have trouble understanding a lot of things,  so I was very annoyed and didn't get half of what he was saying, so at one point I told her to shut up lol. She got very angry with me because of that. My sister did it too and now we're both in an argument with my mom because of that.

I'm sorry, but is it that hard to keep your mouth shut? Just talk to someone else if you need to ruin something.

Worst thing was that she said I ruined the evening, because I ''didn't accept her for who she is'' and ''have no sense of humour''. Sure, because insulting people and whining away about how much their performance sucks while you and the person you're talking to both don't hear half of it is sooooo hilarious. Really laughing my ass off here.

My mom does the same thing and its one of the reason why I moved out. Or she thinks its so funny to annoy people, but then once they get mad at her she gets pissy like its their fault and we can't understand her humor.

There was one time after I moved out I invited her and my dad over since she seemed to like the new Batman movie (The Dark Knight Rises). So, the first movie starts out slow, like most movies do. The whole entire time she keeps saying how the movie is boring or how she wants to leave or just talking in general. We all say (everyone excluding her), you can leave if you don't like it, but no she just keeps sitting there. Finally, we had to get strict with her and then she acts like we're kicking her out. No, you're bored and you say you want to leave, I'll drive dad home after we finish the movie in PEACE!

I remember I myself did something I don't like.  I don't know why I did this.  I was sitting in the movie theater with my older sister and her new husband and his two kids from his first marriage.  We were watching the suspense murder mystery Sleuth, starring Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier.  Near the mid-point climax, the Olivier character shoots the Caine character in the head.  Later, a detective arrives to ask Olivier questions.  This interrogation last a long time.  As the detective keeps talking, it began to dawn on me that the detective was really Michael Caine in an elaborate disguise of an old man. (Unbeknownst to the audience, the shooting had been feigned, as a way for Olivier to win a "game" he was playing with Caine.)

So I kept whispering to the others next to me, "I think that's Michael Caine!" -- effectively spoiling the surprise.  I must have said this like five times.  What an idiot!  My sister's husband said "No, that's silly!"  Looking back on it, I think he knew it was Michael Caine too, but he wanted to try to preserve the surprise for the others.

Idiots at Golf who shout "GET IN THE HOLE!" when the Golfer is 500 yards away and was never aiming or intending to get it in the hole.

And American sports that go to adverts every 4 minutes. Was watching the end of the Clippers v the Lakers last night and they kept having a time out. How am i meant to get into the match if every few minutes ive being told to buy a Ford? Same goes for American Football.

Since a song from Grease is playing in the background Musicals. Hate the things. Fail to see why anyone, and especially a bunch of folk would suddenly burst into song and start dancing all in sync. And normally the songs are beyond shit. Had to put up with The Sound of Music one Christmas, Julie Andrews twirrling around a hill shrieking...

I wont make any inappropriate comments.

Neighbours again...  God they are annoying...

When they're loud early it the morning, it drives me crazy.  We've complained about this specifically because my spouse works graveyard shifts (5:30pm to 2:30am or later).  We don't expect them to tip-toe around until the afternoon, but banging around at 6:30am?  That's too early regardless.  Then at 8 she's vacuuming.  Then she lets the dogs out (unsupervised) and leaves them outside forever before she lets them back in.  It's great because they whine at the stairs which are right below our window and it wakes us up.  They have a kid too, he's just over 1, and they are so loud with him.  I probably don't get it because I don't have them, but is it necessary to be playing all loud and going "WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" early in the morning?  Jesus.  Have I mentioned they are hillbillies?  They are....  very LOUD hillbillies.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

 

This means I might not turn my tunes down tonight.. which I always do, because unlink them I respect when people are sleeping.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

My next pet peeve may seem trivial in comparison with Long Haired Lady's: I get very annoyed by certain lids of jars and twist caps of bottles that do not easily get back in their groove when I am trying to twist them closed again.  It's like they have designed them so that you have to aim it exactly right, and if you don't, the thing never twists closed, and you have to stand there while the refrigerator door is open and keep turning, un-turning, and re-turning the damn thing until it finally closes. 

I have a suspicion this has to do with a design that it cheap, that costs the manufacturer less money to mass produce.

A related pet peeve (related to food containers) is when you have a plastic container of cottage cheese, or a jar of peanut butter, and when you take off the lid, there is a sealing cover underneath.  So far so good.  Then when you find the little "lip" to take hold of to take off that sealing cover, it tears in strips -- it does not come cleanly completely off in one stroke, like it should.  That really irks me.  On the rare occasions when I find a product that is designed well, and that sealing cover just comes off so nicely and completely and easily, I remark to myself and to the universe:  "Now that's how it should be made!"

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I agree.

Also, I find it slightly annoying when people try to sing along to Beatles songs, but an octave higher so they can reach the notes. That's why I don't sing the song if it's too low.
