Pet peeves are there to remind us that we truly, are, human.

Why is it that someone tapping us on the shoulder rather than simply saying "excuse me?" sends us flying off the handle in such a way that we just want to strike them?

What small thing pisses you off way more than it should?

Here were some of those answers.


Ew Ew Ew

People who don't rinse toothpaste out the sink after they spit.

Wet Feet

My boyfriend has a mat outside his shower that he always manages to soak after showering and I always step on it and complain that I got my socks wet or some times I'll be in the bathroom with him just talking and mid-sentence he will shove me onto the stupid gross wet mat!!

Nom Nom Nom

People who chew with their mouth open. My grandfather did this and he ate a butter, cream cheese, and mayo bagel. He had his mouth open. I threw up on the ground.

Different Kindness Avenues

People ignoring four-way stop procedure and trying to wave you through when they clearly should go first. Like thanks for trying to be kind but I'm confused and you're holding up traffic, go give a balloon to a child instead.

Why I'm An Introvert

I hate when I arrive at a party and I have to go over to everyone I know to say hi, I'd rather it all happen organically. I walked into a party once, grabbed a drink and sat down with a couple people and like 4 people walked over like "EY! You don't come over to say hi to me you dirtbag?!" I told them that I was doing a reverse Irish exit, an Irish entrance. They told me that the Irish entrance isn't a thing and that I was an ahole.

A Limey Ahead

As somebody from the UK, I get incredibly annoyed with other British tourists who cannot control their drink and make a fool of themselves abroad, especially in European countries such as Spain for example. Places like Benidorm and Magaluf come to mind, just party resorts to go and get pissed, almost like a mini Blackpool. I'm all for partying and have a good time don't get me wrong, but a lot of my fellow countrymen have no respect for the locals by drinking ridiculous amounts, and on top of that make no effort to learn about the country's customs, culture or language.

No wonder there was a meme going round a few years ago of how Americans see the British, and how Europeans see the British. Generally we all tend to be lumped in as white trash. Its always a few Brits that tend to ruin our image abroad, we're not all drunken lager louts that cause mayhem. A lot of British tourists generally want to try out different cultures and cuisines, rather than get pissed in clubs every night and have the bare minimum interaction with the locals.

Dining Etiquette

I worked in foodservice for about four years, starting when I was 15. I get upset when people don't phrase their order as a polite sentence, like grumbling "hamburger and fries" instead of asking "Can I get a hamburger and fries, please?" That, and also orders that start with "gimme." I just think it's important to talk to servers like people! :) (Also in the U.S. you've gotta leave a respectful tip)

People hard up for cash will do anything. But what about the other way around?

Everyone talks about how the 20s are supposed to be the time of our lives. And that's largely true. But it's not all wine and roses.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
