Well said. Reminds me of a verse I learned in Drivers Ed back in the dark ages:

He was right, dead right, as he hurried along;
but he's just as dead as if he'd been wrong.

People who chew with their mouths open should be jailed.

I have two:

1. People who drive with their lap-dog on their...lap while driving. I see those little things getting all in the steering wheel, etc. and it irritates the crap out of me. I love dogs, but they don't belong on someones lap while driving. Some states have made cell phone laws and most have seatbelt laws, but they fail to address "scruffy" jumping around on someones lap and all up on the steering wheel while driving? I never used to see this (or maybe didn't notice), but I seem to see it all the time now. Maybe it's just a "thing" where I live.

2. People smoking with kids in the car. I'm not all about taking away peoples right to smoke, but they shouldn't be smoking with kids in the car.

I'm not going to go all "road-rage" on either of the above examples, but I often think..."Oh what the f***. Seriously?"

This is a funny thread.

1. People with bad breath wanting to get close to you, when they talk. They always have something to say.
2. Women with ugly feet/chipped nail polish. Just remove it.
3. People who just can't shut up when they should.
4. People who let their kids sit in the front without seat belts.
5. People who smoke with kids in their cars.
6. People who cannot make the difference between: they're, their, and there. (when typing)
7. People who come to my house with their dogs. Leave them at home.
8. People who cannot control their rude kids
9. Extremely talkative women. (know when to shut up/saying the same thing over will not help your cause. Most men ignore the rambling within the first few minutes. Say your peace, and let's move on.
10. Old men who whine about how this country is not what it used to be...Hello!? Get with the times.
11. People who chew with their mouths open.
12. People who pay more attention to their cell phone conversations than the road. Pull over and talk.
13. People who get mad at me when I tell them I dont speak Spanish in Miami.
14. Email chain letters about religious stories/prayers, stating if I don't forward it, I will have bad luck!!
15. People who are quick to call others who don't agree with them Unpatriotic or UnAmerican.
16. People who talk smack about things without knowing what they are talking about. (Most people cannot properly define Socialism and Communism yet put them in the same sentence all the time)
17. Fat, unhealthy people who want to sit and criticize athletes making mistakes during a game...while they're wolfing down their burritos and sodas on their couches.
18. Idiots who get dogs such as pitbulls while they have 3 and 4 year olds in their houses.
19. People who idolize thug lives/gangster nonsense.
20. People who think Tupac and Elvis are still alive.
21. Women who cry for anything. (That irks me, when will the tears be sincere?)
22. People who talk about brand name clothing all day. (I just ignore them, or walk away), that's just small minded talk.
23. People who think a car with 22 inch wheels is tasteful. It's not!! (some will call it subjective, I call it low life styles..)
24. Lying car salesmen. Hard as it is, just be straight up.
25. People yapping about our current president, yet offer no alternatives/answers to our crisis.

I will leave it at that for now.

My biggest pet peeve is people who smoke cigarettes in public places.

People who are so fixated on other people's lives that they can make up a list of 25 pet peeves.

I have a life. When I spend my time making a list of 25 things, it's a list of 25 baseball cards now worth over $1,000 each that I put in the spokes of my bicycle tires.

Pet Pieve # 27:

Relax dude, the whole pet pieve thing made me laugh more than anything. You take things way too seriously. Relax (ride that bike if anything) .

Are you thinking that I take this thread seriously? BTW, when I put Mickey Mantle's Rookie card in the spokes, they were worth a penny apiece.
