How about, especially in the business place the way everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY) has to end every conversation or email with "thank you"...even when there is NOTHING to thank the other person for.

It's kind of like when somebody asks "hows it going?" as they are walking away. If you really just wanted to say "hi", then say "hi"...don't ask me how its going if you really don't want an answer.

Or when I smile at a customer, welcoming them into my department, and say hello. Their first response is "Just looking". Then I smile back and say "Just saying hello!"

LOL......I do that.

I always assume if an "employee" is talking to me for any reason, they are going to push me into buying....so I always respond something like that....even if they just say "hello".

Sorry.....I would peeve you.

Unanswered personal emails.

Work emails that get forwarded from the one person I wrote to, to the whole staff. "Thank you, Msviolin, for your comment about . . . "

Spam.

Bad public restroom etiquette:

Cell phones: Please stop talking on the can...it's really disturbing. Seriously, next time I hear this I am going to fake giving birth out of my anus.

Door rattlers: The door is a very simple object...if it does not open on the first try, then it is occupied. You lose at life, quit bothering me before I am tempted to jump out there and pee up your nose.

Stall peepers: What the heck are you expecting to see in here, Jimmy Hoffa? Stop it...I will not only pee up your nose, but give you a swirle if you keep this up.

stall pee-ers: Yes, there is a urinal a few steps over, and from audible cues, I know it's vacant...are you telling me you are 4 years old, and unable to control your own urine stream with the finesse and skill that was supposedly taught in grade school? If that's the case, use the short urinal, so you have little choice but to have the right trajectory. I'm sick of seeing "water spots" on the seats from fools like this.

people who leave the faucet on: usually this is done by one of two groups...those who don't wash their hands after, and those who are going to use a cell in the can....it's not helping things, and it's wasting water....please stop before I am tempted to embarass your cell-talking butt in ways never imagined, as I use my "Mr. Slave" voice to sing "It's raining men" as loudly as I can muster.

...don't think I won't either....

I can't stand it when people don't use their turn signals, or use them after they've merged/started to turn/applied their brakes...too late, you prick!

This one really bugs me, but it's probably 'cause I was in a couple different medical units in the Army and we had to wash our hands all the time. Plus, there was signage everywhere reminding you to.

People who merge last second while I'm in a line of traffic for an exit (when I'm driving). Unless they're old or have out of state plates, they ain't getting ahead of me. I'm not an aggressive driver, it just annoys me that these people disregard the rest of the traffic, those trying to get off, and those that are not getting off causing yet more traffic because the fool is taking up another lane.

You know who you are, just hope you don't try it with me when I'm in my old POS car, cause I'll run your a** off the road.

People that park too close to my car, especially when there was plenty of room for them not to have to do so...

Hocking a juicy oyster at said person's car, and missing the door handle...

People that use the self-checkout at the supermarket, without having the faintest idea wtf they're doing...

Buying a "new" book, and finding a piece of hair in it...

Buying anything else, and finding a piece of hair in it...

I could go on.
