Pet Peeve Thread

People who talk with their mouth full.

Only because I just sat in a lunch meeting and had to sit across from this person. Good grief - don't they think something is wrong here when they stuff their mouth, and talk - and food falls out??? And then they get embarrassed by it. And do it again. ick.

People who unknowingly spit while talking.

Drivers who edge up on a lane THEY KNOW is ending to try to get as far up in the line as possible.

Being talked down to by somebody who understands whatever topic it is less than I do.

I've known a number of women (Note I said "women", not "girls") who do this quite often. They think men will automatically melt and do what they ask because its sooo sexy or cute or something.

It just makes me want to vomit.

I never knew this to be completely true until a coworker about 5 years ago. NO MATTER WHAT you said, he found something wrong and had to correct it. Even when you agreed with him he'd come back with something to make it sound like you didn't understand the full argument yet or something.

It was so bad I quit wanting to talk with him AT ALL. He was the first to go when downsizing layoffs came.

The females who start whining because "oh it's too hard to work here, can somebody help me lift this?" As they glance over to the guys. I'll be right there and go over and pick it up for them. Boy do they turn red. Yeah...I hate that HELP ME I'M JUST A GIRLY GIRL type of work ethic. If you can't handle friggen 70lbs (which is the requirement to work here - try doing it with a bulged disk) then go work in the office.

People who don't check for scheduling conflicts when trying to assemble people for a meeting.
We have a scheduling calendar on our email client for a reason. Don't get angry with everyone for declining your meeting if you schedule it to overlap a training session, 4 people's PTO, and on Friday from 4pm-5pm (when 3 more people are listed as "unavailable.")


People who call or stop by my cubicle 2 minutes after sending me an email, just to ask me if I got their email. If you're that concerned, check the "receipt verification" box before you send it.
