What is Your Biggest Pet Peeve?

Lisa F. Young, ThinkStock

Deep down we’re all just old people annoyed by everything and everyone. My pet peeves seem a little odd but everyone is annoyed by something. I hate when the handle gets stuck on the toilet and you can hear the water trying to fill up the tank and I hate slow drivers. What’s yours?

According to Harris Interactive these are the things that drive us crazy:

1.  Plane etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who hog the overhead bins versus people who recline their seats in coach?  Overhead bin hogs got 65% of the vote, people who recline got 35%.

2.  Bad driving.  What bothers you more:  Tailgaters or slow drivers in the left lane?  Tailgaters have the slight edge, 53% to 47%.

3.  Public cell phone etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who have loud phone calls in public or people who check their phones during conversations?  Loud public callers got about two-thirds of the votes, 65% to 35%.

4.  Email etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who always REPLY ALL on emails . . . or people who don’t reply to emails at all?  The “reply all” people had a tiny edge, 51% to 49%.

5.  Social media etiquette.  What bothers you more:  Excessive complaining on social media or excessive bragging on social media?  Believe it or not, complaining was voted worse, 55% to 45%.

6.  Parenting etiquette.  What bothers you more:  Parents who let their kids run wild or people who give unsolicited parenting advice to strangers?  The parents with wild kids won huge over unsolicited advice, 86% to 14%.  There’s some irony there.

7.  Grammar etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who misuse common words or people who correct other people’s grammar?  People who misuse words won, 57% to 43%.

8.  Lateness etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who are always late, or people who are totally intolerant of lateness?  The people who are always late won BIG, 80% to 20%.

9.  Confrontation etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who are openly rude or people who are passive aggressive?  Openly rude people won big, 85% to 15%.

10.  Temperature etiquette.  What bothers you more:  People who complain about the heat or people who complain about the cold?  People complaining about heat are worse, 57% to 43%.
