    Misspelled words anywhere, especially in the newspapers.

    I shudder at the "I and Me" thing, too.
    Would they say "Rose spent the day with I."? duh

    Servers in restaurants who refer to my lady friends and me as "You Guys".

    I used to try to find out how many typo's were in the books I was reading. I also used to try to find the mess up's in movies. I can't remember what movie it was in, but they had a roll of paper towel sitting on the sink and they switched to another actor, went back, and the paper towel was gone.

    Have you noticed that people are losing the skill of spelling words correctly?

    Adding an s to anyway.

    Pet peeve threads getting shut down.

    Adults having smug little adolescent rants.

    Linty thread. C'mon, now!

    Unrealistic expectations.

    Lousy restaurant food.

    people who talk on their cell phones and drive
    Inconsiderate drivers
    Parents who argue with a 5 yr old in the checkout lane over a candy bar they don't need.

    A couple of common English errors just aggravate me to no end.
    The misuse of your and you're or their, there and they're.
    People don't seem to be thinking about what they're saying.

    Thanks!

    Sadie,
    I have often wondered if more people are poor spellers these days or if we are just exposed to more poor spellers because of chat rooms, texting, etc.

    Who knows?

    It irriates me when I think how short life is and I sit and hear comments to make problems for people who go with the flow of life...like some people do not have enough to do...too much idle time....it is like "get a life"

    I agree with the spelling and the grammar. I am an English teacher and I constantly deal with this issue. My students do not seem to care.

    Calling in to take care of a bill or needing help with service and all you get is a recording.

    Sorry to all the Teachers here, but I also have a pet peeve when teachers get upset with folks who have problems with spelling or english.. :-(

    Wish I hadn't read this post at all.....

    And ladies, if I upset you because of my language or spelling sorry, but my education just wasn't what it should of been.

    Since I was very shy and I mean very, very shy growing up and didn't like to speak up and ask questions.

    I think it was because we moved around a lot.

    And because I didn't give any of my Teachers grief, they pass me on.

    Ringing the phone company or other organisation, going through the press #1, etc caper, and finish up speaking to someone in India who can barely speak English, and if they can, has an accent so thick you can't understand them. Seems all Australian organisations have them. Have decided next time I will ask for a natural English speaking person, and if they are offended, too bad.

    Or to turn in front of you to go shopping.

    I was concrete mixer driver until I got hurt, now I sit at home because of back pain.

    But I think people thought that we could stop on a dime, because their were folks who pull over in front of you to pull into a shopping center. I don't know how many people I almost rear ended because of them doing this, especially with a full load of 10yards of concrete! What where people thinking, or not thinking...

    My pet peeve is rude people. Especially the ones who say something mean to you and expect you to just take it and say nothing back.

    Amen.

    I was at a water park, and I'm over weight, enjoying my day with my grandchildren and sons. And out of no where, this young college student, called me a whale. I wasn't hurting him or anyone else minding my own business, but he hurt my feelings.

    Some People just don't think sometimes.

    I have two more pet peeves and they pertain to pets. Our county has a leash law for dogs and not for cats. Cats often mess in our landscaping and even on our sidewalks. Then the owners say you can't leash cats and expect you to clean up after their pets. Also, pets are not allowed on our beaches in this county, yet people take their dogs out onto the beaches and let them mess all over and don't clean up after them. What makes them think the law doesn't apply to them? GRRRRR!!!
