I hate when people do stuff that you just told them not to do. I hate when a rapper does a cover of an oldie and then people dont know it was an oldie (see Young Forever Jay-Z rework of Forever Young by Alphaville).

I hate bluetooth's, actually I hate it even more that I can spell bluetooth and the spell check acts like there's nothing wrong! It's a perfectly acceptable word by my computer! But it really does annoy me, I'll think people are talking to me, but then I'll ask them a question and they'll just point towards their flashing blue ear and look at me like I'm the crazy one. There are many, many things that really annoy me, but the in your face 24/7 technology would have to top the list. It's exhausting.

I only hate when it is crappy music, which it is 99% of the time.  I however, have a phone that holds 100 songs, so i have 100 Beatles songs on my phone.  Haha.

Ok here's my pet peeve which will tick off a lot of people (perhaps) - it's when people play music through their built-in computer speakers or their phones.

It drives me crazy to hear millions of dollars of professional music production pushed through a 99 cent speaker.

Having grown up in the days of transistor radios, once decent sound reproduction became available - I could never understand why anyone would listen to the tin-like sound of those tiny speakers.

I know many disagree - but it's my pet peeve.

Speaking of phones, I hate ringtones. Even if it's stuff I like - why the hell do I wanna hear 10 seconds of my favourite Beatles song over and over and over? (I DON'T want to, that's why!) Everybody at work has phones and they always seem to ring when they're away from their desks. Put 'em on vibrate ffs!

Another phone pet peeve: If somebody calls me at home and I don't answer within 4 rings, I'm either NOT HERE or I'm NOT ANSWERING! There's no need to let it ring a dozen times. I don't live in a mansion; even at my absolute furthest point from the phone, I can reach it before the fourth ring. And if I did live in a mansion, 12 rings would mean I was too far away to even hear the damned thing in the first place. So I'm counting on you, my fellow Beatles Bible-ers, to help spread the word: If you call me and I don't answer after four rings, hang up! I'm not answering. Deal with it!

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

So we shouldn't leave a message? What if I want to set up a job interview? Can't you shorten the number of rings until it goes to voice mail?

As someone who ignores the phone more often than picks it up, I sympathise.

My pet peeves are normally to do with people mangling the English language. Today it's the misuse of the word 'reform', which doesn't mean the same as 'change', but reporters always seem to think it does (it means to improve). Also I can't stand the misuse of 'impact' when people mean 'affect' - eg "How will this impact the project?", or my absolute least favourite, "How can we make this more impactful?"

Sadly I work in new media and there's an awful lot of bullshit spoken.

I hate it when my friends pretend to love The Beatles for me when I know they really don't care.  Seriously, they're my friends so they shouldn't have to change their interests for me.

I'd rather have friends that have my interests in the first place... a-hard-days-night-paul-1 One of my pet peeves is having people I love live so far away, like you guys! a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 

Another is when people just pretend or claim to be fans when they aren't at all.

They don't even know what it is to be a fan, you know? To truly love some silly little peace of music, or some band, so much that it hurts. (ehehehe name the movie and you get a candy bar a-hard-days-night-paul-2no googling!)

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

I completely agree. You might as well not listen to music if you're not treating it like it wants to be treated a-hard-days-night-george-6

Haha thankyou! I got it from tumblr. And I only wish my name was Michelle so I could pretend Paul was singing to me. I guess I'm living with a boy's name in the real world a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

I'm talking about my home phone. I have no voice mail, no answering machine, and I'm not in a position to hire anyone (though I'm sure you're more than qualified, Skye!)
