What Are Your Pet Peeves?

{Random picture of a girl taken a while back.}

It seems almost everyone has pet peeves. Yes. I've got some pet peeves. (Let me know if I should include some more.)

Here's my list:

People who are mean to animals.
Noisy eaters.
People who talk with food in their mouths. I find that extremely rude.
People who throwing trash into a recycle bin.
People who blame anything but themselves for their failure.
People who pick their noise in public.

Of course, I have plenty of annoying qualities myself, but I am completely at peace with them. Haha!

What are your pet peeves? Chime in!

Hope you have a lovely weekend, and here are a few wonderful blogs from around the Blogland. xx

The most annoying habit for me is when you go out with somebody and the most of the time he/she is talking to the phone.
Have a nice weekend!

Becoming a proper grumpy old woman I'm afraid, my pet hates are too many to mention. Great post though Betty and I agree with you on them all and especially with the litter louts - it maddens me even more when they drop their litter whilst right next to a bin .... agggghhhh.

Puxa, se temos coisas que irritam!

Falta de educação é uma delas! beijos,tudo de bom,chica

Pat said...

Thanks for the shout out!

Pet Peeves - People who litter. When I see people throw garbage out their car window, I just want to pull up beside their car and yell at them. I don't have the nerve, but boy I sure want to do that!

People who don't pick up after their dog! I LOVE animals, but I don't love their poop!

I agree with many things on YOUR list! :)

Kelly said...

Thanks for linking to me today! :)

I have lots of pet peeves and you've included a great list here. Many of mine are driving related.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Betty!

Leovi said...

Yes, you're right, I share your hobbies. Thank you very much for recommending my blog bisita, a hug!

Sandra said...

I will start my pet peeve with the photo...texting while driving, talking on cell phone while driving, talking on cell phone in doctor office, talking to your friend on cell phone while we are eating lunch out, talking on cell phone while trying to put groceries on the belt, talking on cell phone while trying to write a check at said check out. there is more but no time to do it all.

people who call me Sandy when i say my name is Sandra

and all of the ones you listed, and the worst one out of those that makes me crazy is those who think all the stuff that happens to them is bad luck, never a consequence of what THEY did.

Lynn said...

I have about the same ones as you + people who smoke and don't realize their cigarette smoke permeates books they borrow, etc. :)

And a new one - people who post on facebook that they are out at a fun outing (restaurant - whatever) and list the people they are with and the list does not include me! :)

Betsy Adams said...

My biggest pet peeves:
1. People texting at the dinner table, or talking LOUDLY on their cellphones in a restaurant or store;
2. People who are slow in front of you in line at a store--such as not even beginning to write a check before checking out, or finding their credit cards, or having a long chat with the cashier, etc...
3. People who drive too slow in the left (fast) lane on the interstate;

Shall I go on?????? ha ha

Have a good weekend.

Thanks Betty!
Have a nice weekend!

Chatty Crone said...

Is that you - very pretty. And in two words - cell phones.


SweetMarie said...

People that are mean to animals!
People who liter!
People on cell phones in restaurants...walk outside.
I agree with your entire list.
I could go on for awhile. LOL

Hope you've had a great week!


eileeninmd said...

Hello, Betty! I agree with your list and I have a few more. Especially the noisy eaters!

I can not stand to see people throw thrash or cigarettes out their car windows. Littering is disgusting!

People who cut me off driving like they are in a hurry and then they go slow.

On to happier thoughts, have a great weekend!

Pedro Luis López Pérez (PL.LP) said...

That sounds the phone in a performance, continuously cut the conversation, talking screaming ...
Thanks for including me in your blog reference!
For me you are, too.
You are a Charming.
Good Weekend.
Hugs and kisses.

Mari-Pi-R said...

Todos estamos llenos de manías de las cuales citadas estoy de acuerdo contigo.
Feliz fin de semana con humor

It's me said...

Thank you darling....have a nice weekend...love Ria...x !

Ms. A said...

All the ones on your list and WAY TOO MANY MORE TO MENTION.

Happy Weekend, Betty!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

One big pet peeve is people who think they are professional photographer and really are not. I appreciate all pictures and most of us don't claim to be pros,just enjoy taking pictured.Ok,I got that off my chest and now on to enjoy all the pictures my dear friends have posted.Keep on shooting.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I definitely agree with all those on your list! I have to say that I hate it when I see people out to dinner and they have their faces buried in their cell phones. What happened to having a conversation over dinner? It's just so rude!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, I couldn't agree more with you and your other readers, Betty!! I think that's why I needed a bigger apartment!! Hope you have a great weekend!! Enjoy!

Red Nomad OZ said...

Thanx so much for mentioning me! I'm honoured!! And uncharacteristically speechless ...

Have a great weekend!!!

:.tossan© said...

What yummy! I'm on your list. It's good for my ego! Thanks, I like well-written text like this. Congratulations.

Riot Kitty said...

Do I have any? Where do I begin? There is not a long enough post for that! :)

diane b said...

Barking dogs in the neighbourhood.

Ann said...

I have lots of pet peeves. Cell phones that are permanently attached to people is one of them, people who are late, people who call off from work and then complain they have no money, those are just the beginning...lol

DIMI said...

I also hate impatient drivers - behind me or pulling in front of me. They make me mad and nervous.

Have a great weekend, Betty.

marijke said...

I have so many things on my list I won't start writing it on my comment you probaly have to read it for weeks I think, hahahah. But before talking about other people I have to be honest to say I am not perfect at all helas. Thanks for linking to my blog you make me shy.
Have a wonderful weekend dear Betty

Nevine Sultan said...

I think my biggest pet peeve at the moment is people who text while they're driving. I've been in too many near misses because of that, and I can't help but wonder what it is that's just so important it can't wait!

I also cringe when people separate their salad into individual vegetables, and eat in backwards order, saving their favorite vegetable for last. I'm not so sure what that's all about, but... it's a salad. If you want to eat each vegetable separately, why make a salad to begin with?

I hope you're having a lovely and relaxing weekend, my dear!

Big hugs to you,

sky-blu-pink said...

Bad manners! Being polite costs nothing, and it is so much easier than being rude! And I hate it when people stand in front of me when I am waiting for a train or tube when I am doing as I am asked and standing safely behind the Yellow Line! And people who won't admit they have made a mistake -we all do. Admit it and move on! No one will think badly of you! Have a nice Sunday Betty!

Hilary said...

All of yours and when someone takes long, non-urgent, chatty phone calls when you're either visiting them (or they, you) or you're out to lunch together. Or similarly those who put you on hold after phoning you, to take another call or to talk to someone while you wait.. and by this I mean personal stuff - not business phone calls.

Ellie said...

Oh I agree with ALL of your list but rude people really get my goat. It doesn't hurt to be nice. Gee thanks for letting me get that of my chest, lol. I feel better now.

George said...

When I saw your picture I was sure you were going to mention my pet peeve: People loudly talking on their cell phone in restaurants or other public places.

Mark said...

My pet peeve, not being on time. I hate it when people are late. I am never late. If your not 10 minutes early, you're late. As you can tell, it is my pet peeve.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Pet peeve -- people who say they will do something and then they don't. Very aggravating.

Have a wonderful Sunday Betty!

Betty Manousos said...

i couldn't agree more with you guys.

my other pet peeve is:people who are either loud on their cell phones in public, or use them while driving.

Betty Manousos said...

dimi, thanks, but that's not me! lol!

Catherine said...

Gosh....so many pet peeves so little time to list them all... LOL!
People who use their cell phone and drive.
People who litter.
Indeed people who are mean to animals - more of a hatred rather than a pet peeve.
Wishing you a most wonderful week
xo Catherine

Anonymous said...

Yup - those are some of my pet peeves too.

Tamara Camera said...

Mine is audible eaters and close talkers. I just don't understand how you can get to adulthood and eat loudly and noisily or not notice that people shrink away from you when you talk to them.

Texting while you're talking to someone is a huge one. Although nowadays it's not just texting. It's doing anything on a phone while with someone else face to face.

Pat Tillett said...

Mine is pretty easy.People who don't "control" their children in public drive me nuts. Loud people also bug me.

yonca said...

Can't agree more, Betty! Thanks for recomandations! Off to visit them now:) Have a wonderful day!xx

Craver Vii said...

Hi Betty! I've already looked at some of the sites you recommend, and I hope to get around to visiting the others.

Pet peeves? Littering is a big one for me, but that is common to a lot of people, so that we can almost remove that from the category of pet peeves. Maybe the negative reaction to littering should be reclassified to "righteous indignation."

Spelling is something that I pay some attention to, and maybe too much. It gnaws at me when I see the error of "there, their and they're." But I have a lot of pet peeves.

Oh! I just thought of one! Licking. My dog is a licker, and he just... won't... stop!! It drives me bananas. I can handle one or two passes of the tongue, but I am not a human popsicle!! Aah, I feel better for letting that out. Thank you.

Teresa Coltrin said...

I can't say that I have a ton of pet peeves, but only because I've resolved myself that people are who they are and there is nothing I can do about it. :)

Here's my short pet peeve list:

1. Complaining about silly things, when there is so much suffering in the world.
2. Neglecting the needs of the children we produce.
3. Not being a good example to said children. (Being selfish)
4. Dogs chained in yards. (not cool)
5. People texting and driving. (Dangerous)
6. Parents reading their phones as their children trail behind -- no interaction. (Sad)
7. The other extreme: Treating your dog like a child. Doggies aren't meant to be our children. Treating them like a pet (and not a child) gives them the freedom to be the wonderful creatures they are meant to be.

Sorry, my list became longer!!!

Theresa said...

Over talkers! When simple facts work, please don't give me the entire back story of he said she said. My mom does this a lot and it drives me insane!

Bob Bushell said...

My peeve is the first one, I hate people who does it.

Christa Mavropoulou said...

τώρα κατάλαβα Μπέτυ μου τι εννοόυσες-))
Σε ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ που με συμπεριέλαβες.
Ουυυυ ,έχω αρκετά που με ενοχλούν,και φαντάζομαι πως θα ενοχλώ και εγώ-)
Άνθρωποι που έχουν τα σκυλιά τους στο μπαλκόνι!!!
Ανθρωποι που μιλούν συνέχεια στο τηλέφωνο,και ας μην είναι κανείς στη γραμμή!!!
Ανθρωποι που γελάνε με το ζόρι!!!

Ανθρωποι που δεν πλένονται!!!
Και ένα σωρό άλλα-)))

Mandy Southgate said...

Hallo Betty! Yes, I think I share your peeves. I also have two specific to blogging and social media: people who share the same link to their own post again and again and again and people who either don't reply to or reciprocate comments. I know you feel the same about the latter!!

imac said...

Too many sorry, lol.
But I enjoyed this post - like the girl pic too.

Anvilcloud said...

People who don't push their carts to the back of an empty coral.

Drivers who sit on your tail but don't pass when they have the opportunity.

Slow drivers who speed up when we reach a passing lane on a two lane highway.

ritsa said...

You do take beautiful pictures!:D

Betty Manousos said...

well said, mady!;)

Georgia said...

Far too many to mention but I liked that photo.

Lowell said...

One of my pet peeves is a photograph of what appears to be a beautiful girl taken from behind!

Just kidding! But it is an enticing and tantalizing photo! :)

Laura said...

Quite many- I'm afraid.
Of course people who loudly talking in public.

michael said...

I have about the same ones as you.

The picture speaks itself.

Georgia said...

I have many!!

Thanks for the links. Off to check these out:D
