I'm 5'1.5, and I'm not getting any taller. I don't mind it, though, I would rather be little. The only thing I can complain about because of it is that I can't get pants or shorts at a lot of stores, because a lot of them don't sell small enough sizes, but that's not even that big of a deal.

Yeah, I'm pretty short, too. I don't know exactly how tall I am, but I think I'm around 5'1" or something like that. But there are at least three boys and three girls in my grade who are shorter than me. :)

 

Also, a pet peeve of mine is when people come up to me and say, "Oh, your birthday must be in autumn, right?" No, it's not, and I don't know why my parents named me Autumn if I was born in August.

It really started bothering me when my brother started growing taller than me and he was four years younger than me. People who did not know us well would call me Timmy's little sister. Excuse me, but I'm 4 years older! I'm don't know who else is short in my family besides my mom and I. My mom was adopted, so I don't know half of what I am. I've come into liking of my height now. :)

My 3 year younger sister is quite a bit taller than me as well and people often get us mixed up. They're so confused and embarrassed when we tell them I'm actually the older one. People never guess my age right anyway. They often think I'm 16. Highlight was when I actually turned 15 or 16 and my neighbour asked me if my parents had already picked a new school for me. She thought I was 12paul-mccartney

I don't know why people think I'm so young though. It's not like I dress like a child or like I'm THAT short or something. Maybe I've got a babyface.

Let's hope it'll stay this way though, so that when I'm in my 40s, people'll think I'm still in my twenties!

I feel so tall, I'm 5'4"!  I stopped growing when I was about 16.  I always liked being short.  My boyfriend is pretty short for a guy, only about 5'7" maybe 5'8".  Perfect height for me!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I'm 5'5'', apparently. My ''little'' brother and sister are both about 5'8'' so they're quite a bit taller. And to make it worse my sister often wears heels or creepers.

I use to get that a lot too when I was a teenager. 

One of my pet peeves is people liking stuff just because its popular. Its ok to like popular things I like The Beatles, Harry Potter, and Glee for example. But liking it cause its the new flavor of the month or everyone else likes them I hate. My in-laws are really bad about this. My husband and my brother-in-law were talking about The Walking Dead. My brother-in-law didn't know it was comic before it was a show. Even I knew that & I hate the show! He started watching Game of Thrones…because everyone else is. My mother in law bought 3D tv because her sister bought one. Funny thing is, she doesn't know how to use the 3D capabilities. People seeing the final Harry Potter just because its the final Harry Potter even if they never seen any of the other movies or read the books! Then asking stupid questions during the movie! ahdn_paul_01I could go on, but you probably get my point. As I said before its ok to like popular things, but like it for what it is.

I watched the live episode of Eastenders a few years back due to the nature of the event despite hating Eastenders and having not watched it in years – it was a quiet evening. After 28 minutes of poor acting, terrible dialogue and an awful ending i felt cheated and cheapened. Never seen another second since of that or any other soap. A happy outcome.a-hard-days-night-john-6ahdn_george_08

Yeah, or to dislike something just because so many other people you know dislike that.

 

Another pet peeve of mine is when people walk duck footed, with their feet facing outwards. I don't know why it annoys me so much, but it really does.

I've TRIED to watch an episode once, but failed miserably.

Oh and I love Harry Potter! Read all books and seen all movies. Do I get a prize now?

Another pet peeve:  When you do something nice for someone that you didn't have to do, and you get no acknowledgement.   On Sunday night we took the neighbours (upstairs) 2 heavy-ass garbage cans out to the curb for them because they were still camping and I guess forgot about it.  We don't even get along the greatest (hillbillies and hippies don't mix well a-hard-days-night-paul-11) but I thought it would suck to miss a bi-monthly garbage day, especially since they have a baby.  It's now Thursday, and still no thank you or acknowledgement of any kind!  Just makes me not want to bother next time.  They're being really loud this morning too.  Guess I'll be blasting my awesome music tonight for them!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

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.

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".

It's gotten, over the years, to where I can sort of tell what type of person is going to do this.  Usually, the more attractive a person is, the less likely they will say thank you.  Especially attractive women.  That would make a good study for Sociology.

Antisocial neighbours.

I live in a semi detached house and sleep on the attic, so do my neighbours..unfortunately..if you know what I mean.

Oh and I live in a good neighbourhood, but their garden is awful. The doormat is in their frontgarden and so are some plastic chips trays and rope and godknowswhat. They don't sweep the leaves so everything blows into our garden. And they should really paint the house, it looks horrible. Instead of putting their bikes in the shed, they put them on the friggin sidewalk, so no one can walk on the sidewalk. When they've got a party, they just throw their bikes in OUR garden. 

Not to mention the fighting. You literally hear plates flying around and you can hear them yelling at each other. Once the girl locked the guy out and he was just banging the door and shouting and swearing. This was in the middle of the night and it woke everyone up. The whole street went outside or looked out of their window to see what was happening, including me. 

Our street had a good reputation, but those 2 idiots ensure that no one could ever sell their house. Especially we and the neighbours on the other side next to them.

Oh and they never even introduced themselves to anyone. Up to a few months ago I didn't even know what they looked like, and they're living NEXT to us.

I'm totally gonna live in a detached house on a moor when I'm going to live on my own.

Then we've also got new neighbours across from us. I don't know who they are, cause they haven't introduced themselves either, and they never greet you, but they ALWAYS have the curtains closed. I find them a bit strange.

I don't really like my neighbors, either. They're loud and obnoxious, the father insists on riding his motorcycle very early in the morning, the little kid comes into our yard and they don't even care, their two dogs are loud and obnoxious and mean, their two cats "do their business" in our yard and they don't care, they blow leaves into our yard, and they let the water run out of their rain gutter into our yard, which has created a dip in our driveway.

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
