People who pop their gum loudly...and several times in succession. Not the same as blowing bubbles, which may pop quietly, but definitely not making noise again until the next bubble is blown.

My weird pet peeve is that I want the hero to be herioc.

No human frailties.

When you're trying to walk away politely from someone who's talking to you and they don't get the hint. They just keep talking as you inch slowly away backwards-then they follow you out to the parking lot and they're still talking even when you say "Look, I really have to go now".

People who, for some strange reason, feel the need to advertise it to the whole world that they "work hard." So what? So do millions of other people not named you, but they don't announce it to everyone. What's next? Parents bragging about taking care of their kids?

People who use the phrase "these days" too much when referring to our society in a bad way. Guess what? Things sucked back then, too. One of these days "these days" will be the good old days.

And, if I may get in touch with my feminine side for a moment: people who stand over my shoulder when I'm in the kitchen trying to cook. Go away

People that stand behind me for no special reason. Stupid people that can't think or act for themselves and take accountability for themselves.
