    Who's got some????? I'll start:
    Folks that put stuff up for sale at a higher price than you could find anywhere. I guess I shouldn't care but it bugs the heck outta me. Plenty of them on E bay, but also in forums. I swear there is an individual on E bay that has had the same item listed for over a year at at least 10 times more coin than the item is worth. Wonder if he realizes why it doesn't sell ???? HA!

    Idiots walking down the bike lane so engrossed in their smartphoning that they can't even hear my (very loud) bell as I come towards them at 20mph.

    The same idiots in their cars paying so much attention to their phones that they lose track of the fact that they're operating a motor vehicle. I'm often reminded of that "Do you think you could drive any better if that phone were up your @**" bumper sticker.

    I soooo want to invent a "gun" that can shoot their phones and disable them for a period of time. This has become my number 1 pet peeve above all else! Even worse than people walking real slow in the middle of store aisles and obliviously taking up so much space that you cant get around them.

    people who cannot follow simple instructions.
    Ringback Tones drive me nuts.
    I'm sure there are other things but I cannot think of them now

    The corollary to this is, in my opinion, people riding their bikes on the sidewalk with no bell or signaling device, riding quietly behind me one moment and almost running me over the next! You sound like an OK bicyclist, but the ones in my neighborhood are something else. :l

    Slow people walking who make no effort to let others pass even though they take up the entire available width. My school has very narrow hallways so I have to put up with this a lot.

    There should a mandatory phone disabling device in all operating vehicles.

    My pet peeves:
    I agree with you guys about people being on the phone when they're driving. It's dangerous.
    People who think they are better than everyone or self entitled for no reason.
    Older folks who think they should automatically get respect for being older than you. To me respect is earned when it's also shown no matter what age. The only ones who get automatic respect are those who served our country.
    Hypocrites.
    Parents that were more concerned/in love with the idea of having kids than actually raising/taking care of them.
    Stupidity.
    The drivers that have to cut everyone off to get to the red light before you and the drivers that know the lane ends ahead so they cut in last minute instead of merging earlier when everyone else did.
    People who blame others for what's wrong in their life when it was their own choices that brought them to that point.
    Attention seekers.

    Arrogance and entitlement. The roots of almost everything that will be listed in this thread are all born out of these two things.

    Also obliviousness, myopia (no the optical kind), and failure to prioritize.

    Don't get me started! GiraffeHooves, got a bunch of them. People who leave their shopping cart in the middle on the isle as they look at products. Not putting said shopping cart into collection place when finished and letting it hit my car. Driving slower that the posted speed limit by more that 5 MPH. Stores not keeping up on expiration dates and removing items past due. All delivery services that can't read an address and delivery to correct place. More to follow at later date.

    When "ir" is placed before the word regardless when pronounced...
    When "know what I'm saying" is used.

    Ahhh flip. I'm guilty. :cool:

    I think my biggest pet peeve is entitlement. Already listed.

    Basically, people that don't give a hoot until they finally do. Then they snap their fingers and it should be fixed, by day's end.

    The TP on the wrong way (it goes over the top).

    How trashy people are.. Cigarette butts & snack food wrappers will choke out future generations.

    Forgetting the lighter but we always have a backup close.. man I need to get up....

    I've heard it as "know what I'm talking about"
