Don't worry. They will make up for it some day by taking a sick day when they are perfectly well, and leave you do do all their work for them.

People who don't understand sarcasm.
People who don't appreciate irony.
People who can't take a joke.

I really get annoyed when stuff gets wound up in a big wad, like a bunch of necklaces in a knot, or X-mas lights that have been in a box... That and when stuff gets snagged on other stuff...

No, but it's fun to annoy people by doing that. It winds some people up in such a tizzy, they can't wait to go onlihe and tell people about how their whole day was ruined by somebody pressing the walk button over and over again.

By the way, a technica point. Some lights, the cycle is so long, that they exceed the memory capacity of the button, and it forgets that somebody pressed it. So you have to keep doing it, to make sure it remembers.

Women in stores talking on their cell phones while their kid is tugging at them saying "mama, mama, mama." Either pay attention to the kid or tell them to be quiet, don't act like they are invisible.

Ok well this is probably really random but I hate when people say "Smell it." Or "Lick it." or something else disgusting like that. It's gross. I was traumatized in 7th grade with stupid little punks always trying to get me to smell something. Yuck.

Not really "weird" pet peeves, but two things that I don't like are restaurants that serve craappy french fries. The kind that are made out of pulverized potatoes and then extruded into french fry shapes. I want my fries to have some "cruch" to them.

Also, french fries that are not served HOT. When I am served fries I will often have the waitress wait (sometimes gripping her arm) while I pick up a fry. If that baby is room temperature it is going BACK.

By posting this anyone who has ever had a meal with me just realized that; "hey, golfgod is *****".

Glad I got that off my chest.

I have a serious problem with people licking their fingers. Examples- People licking their fingers and then counting out money or papers because they are sticking together- that is disgusting! Also, licking your fingers while eating is gross too. If you are that hungry, get more food- but don't eat like an animal. Use a napkin if you are sloppy. yuck!
