I understand that so I make sure to only cross when it's safe. It just would be nice if drivers can be more considerate of pedestrians as pedestrians who use public transit often have commute times that doubles a drivers commute time.

People that are looking for houses and say... oh that kitchen is great for "entertaining" or that deck would be great of "entertaining", or the pool, etc.

Entertaining = Showing off for most people.

Pet peeves... hmm. I can't stand for my nails to be longer than my fingertips.
And they grow fast!
I have to cut them all the time.
I don't mind long nails on others; i just don't like how they feel on me.

People who keep edging closer and closer behind you at the grocery store check out. I'm going as fast as I can. The cashier is working as fast as she can. Relax!! I like to turn to them face inches away from mine since they can't stop crowding into my space and say "If you get any closer, we'll both be wearing my shoes." LOL
This was bad in Las Vegas. Not so much here in Hawaii.

At corners, it's NEVER "safe" unless there are no cars. Otherwise you have turn lanes that may want to go.

People on trains & airplanes in rows BEHIND getting into the aisle and moving forward before the thing even comes to a halt -- and before people in FRONT of them even rise.

I always ask these people -- "Where are you GOING??!!" -- especially moronic on an airplane!!

People who clip their nails in public...
Butt cleavage....
And the fact 20 years from now no one will know what a normal teen girl smiled like, because they all do this weird pursed lip, rolled up eyes thing for the camera....what's up with that?
