People who don't bring their supplies to class every day.

I honestly get fed up when I hear someone say "Hey can I borrow your pencil? Hey can I borrow a sheet of graph paper? Hey can I borrow your water bottle?"

I have more school pet peeves than anything, I now realize. This as well as the hallway one annoys me. Sometimes I feel guys do this because it makes them look "manly" or something, because I really can't figure it out. Preps (and I use this term very loosely, as it was introduced to me being used as such - basically it was used to mean rich kids who hang in cliques) usually have money, yet the male ones are almost never prepared for class. I also never gave them pencils, on occasion I'd give paper, and that's it. If one asked me "got a pencil?" I would say 'no', even though I always had several spare pencils.

Which brings me to another school one - when you lend someone a pencil and they lose it. This seems like nothing, but I'm sure you can hold a pencil until the end of the day - I always asked the person I lent one to to have it back by the end of the school day. I had a sort of unspoken policy that if someone could lose a pencil in six hours, I couldn't trust them to hold anything else and I would stop lending them anything.

Keep bringing on the school-related ones, I'm sure I've got more to contribute.

God I hate the staring so much. The other day I was eating lunch by myself in a coffee shop sort of place, and this guy just sat down next to me and started talking about all this weird shit about casinos and ended up suggesting that he and I "take a drive to Vegas in his van" a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Usually it's just annoying, but doesn't it kind of actually scare you sometimes? 

I'm used to it now, been happening ever since I was about 14 a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Generally two words starting with "fuck" and ending with "off"* is the response that tells them I'm not interested- that is only if they talk to me though if you're generally staring I just give you a look which tells you in which general direction to go. 

@MrMoonlight I get it in Ireland as well, it's just more in the cities that I get men beeping their car horns at me, in my town** the men don't care so it's a win win a-hard-days-night-george-9 

It is an absolute pain in the arse though as I generally am not interested in your average 40 year old man a-hard-days-night-paul-10

*Also the phrase "my dad's a Garda (cop)" works ridiculously well .

** One of my friends was walking along with her cousin to the nearby swimming pool in my town. Whilst walking there they noticed a man was creeping up very closely behind them, they took a couple of weird turns just to make sure that he was following them and then my friend pretended to walk to our nearest police station and go inside- the man immediately turned and began walking (very fast might I add) in the other direction.

Hearing those type-of stories ^ kind of sobers you up right?
