    I can't stand when the shower curtain isn't pulled back straight...or if someone takes out the garbage and doesn't put a new bag back in.

    People who walk through the doors of the grocery store with their cart and then just stop- to dig in their purse, or whatever- and block the way. Drives me insane.

    I cringe when I hear the advertisement on TV that says their product is "gooder" or when I hear news commentators say "You guys......." or "these guys"......ARRRRGH!

    People who put their trash sacks at the curb the night before pick up. The stray dogs or cats tear into it and there is garbage all over. The next week, they do the same thing.

    Mine is when my students (or anyone) tries to talk for me, assuming they know what I am going to say next. I always change it up on them and say something different if I can, just to prove they were not "reading my mind." My middle school students think they know everything. It gets really old.

    My other pet peeve is gum chewing... loudly. I don't chew gum because I cannot stand having to watch or listen to others.

    You can't put trash sacks on the ground here, they have to be in the cans or they don't get picked up.

    My whole bathroom would be a big water puddle.

    We don't have garbage pick up here. We have to recycle everything we can and we burn the little bit that we can't recycle.

    We have to have a fire permit to burn, and I don't think anyone knows what the word recycle means.

    We get fire permits too. I recycle everything I possibly can because I have to pay for bags for the ashes in the burn barrel to get rid of it. The less I burn, the better.

    The general decline of the English language. Speaking/Spelling - I cringe at: "I seen it" "Yous guys" "It don't matter" - just to name a few.

    I hate it when the covers are too tight over my toes in the bed at night. :lol:

    Also, when the neighbor's sweet old dog drags the cat food dish off into the yard.

    Oh, and when I have to stand at the sink with the water running for a full minute til it warms up enough to put my hands under it in the winter. Just hate that!

    My pet peeves are people (including newscasters) who use "I and "Me" in the wrong place "Rose spent the day with Jake and I instead of "Rose spent the day with Jake and me"...it just grates!

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

    Nope Northern Wi. :) When we first moved here, we were a little confused because there aren't garbage trucks up here. It took a little while to understand how it all worked.
    When we go for walks in the summer, the kids will even pick up cans and bottles and carry them home in bags to recycle them.

    Ahh...the cold water....I don't like that either. Also, holes in my socks. I throw them away if they get a hole in them. I wear steel-toed shoes at work and I have had certain shoes that would wear holes in my socks after one or two times of wearing them. I don't buy that brand of steel-toe anymore. I spent more money on socks than what it cost for new shoes.
