okay, okay. People who don't seem to think about how their actions affect other people.

Can't think of anything.

When someone says they'll do something that they have no intention of doing. Just tell me!! I can deal with honesty better and work around the problem, rather than relying on someone and having it fall through.

Upon further reflection, I've changed my answer. My biggest pet peeve is hypocrisy...

Mine is being interrupted mid-sentence for someone to correct my grammar. Please wait until I have the thought out before you jump on my for my grammatical errors.

Anyone who hits children or condones hitting in any way.
Also, when anyone says they want "traditional family values" or the "good old days".
Also, there are far too many people having kids. The majority of people are not good parents. Birth control should be the easiest possible thing to obtain.

Bad grammar and spelling, and bad driving.

Restroom labelling parity. If it says "Ladies" it should say "Gentlemen." If it says "Men" it should say "Women." "Guys" and "Gals" or "Stags" and "Does," cutesy theme labels like that make the hair on my neck rise (as does most fake cutesiness), but lack of parity makes my teeth itch. Trivial, I realize, but there it is. ***I take peeve to be "little thing that bothers you disproportionately," but most people seem to take it much more seriously. Hunh.

Using hunter's definition of pet peeve: One of my pet peeves is this stupid fashion of wearing your pants at your hips, so the butt part hangs down to your knees, and it looks like you took a dump in your pants. If i had my way, every single one of those people would get an atomic wedgie, and a belt. Clutter is another pet peeve of mine - I am very organized and neat, and I like to confine my clutter to piles, instead of having it spread out everywhere. I absolutely *hate* having my kitchen table covered with clutter, so that if I want to sit there to eat, I have to spend 10 minutes cleaning it up. Spelling and grammar are other pet peeves - I'll miss the entire point of a document if there are errors.

When "nuclear" is pronounced NUK-yu-lr. Do you see a second 'u'? I do not see a second 'u'.

"Bonus tracks" on CDs that aren't separate tracks. I don't care if they don't want to mention the song on the liner notes, but if it's clearly a separate song, they should put it on a separate track, not just put a bunch of silence in.

When people tell you to shut up and they're the ones talking!!!!

*** oops, using Hunter's definition I would say: People who insist on filling in the gaps of conversations with inane chatter. I often pause to come up with the perfect word, and then people jump onto a different subject. Drives me nuts.

When someone insists on chatting with me when I'm obviously reading my book.

When people don't know the difference between "to" and "too"..."then" and "than"..."your" and "you're"...also, when people think that any word with an "s" at the end takes an apostrophe. The market by my old apartment always had signs out advertising such things as "fresh tomatoe's"...AAAH!

My husband not complementing me more, either on my appearance, chores or accomplishments.

lack of personal responsibility. This means everything from suing the ski mountain if you get hurt because of doing something stupid to littering. I also hate that I don't live up to my own standards. Boy that bugs me!

Drivers who don't stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk even though it says STATE LAW on big signs nearby.

this is a toughie. I would say stupidity (or what I perceive to be stupidity) in general. I define stupidity as willful ignorance or basically refusing to register or process information given **since someone hit it earlier, ANYONE who says 'get a life' then can't give you anything even resembling a coherent answer when asked what a life is.
