Old men that whistle under their breath every moment of their day.
Someone has to say it.

As you look more closely you see that a driver has parked well over the line and effectively taken up two parking spots. You don't have a Smart Car to squeeze in there so you just start the hunt all over again.

Especially people who do it deliberately because they don't want anyone scratching their car.
It is a good thing I am a law abiding citizen. It takes great effort not to "key" those vehicles.

It's not a whistle, it's a wheeze...

People who quote a long post and don't shorten it to just the pertinent part or it has several quotes in one.

Ferchristsakes how many times do you think we are gonna read it!

If it's a really long one we probably didn't read it the first time...

I wish ferri would ban these people till they learn not to do it!

Those who want to kill themselves then do so, just don't take others around you with you.

My pet peeve is those who b---- and moan about how inadequate the snow plowing is in the city and/or highways. Learn to drive, people, and stop complaining about your taxes going up in the same breath. I think it's done to a superb standard, and would not like more money allocated just to get the snow off the road a little faster.

^^^^Which brings up a huge Pet Peeve.

big money wheel spinning.
Licence, crash, repair, crash, replace, crash, round and round.

My pet peeve has to do with snow removal - and how they don't actually do the entire street. Take Manhattan Dr downtown. Plowed enough to drive, but if you want to park you have to risk getting high-centred on a solid 2ft high snowbank that's wider than a truck. I have to park in a paid lot,; or pack a shovel, block one lane while trying to shovel out enough to park.

Also a pet peeve - people who won't move their cars. I've seen cars parked there weeks on end, snow undisturbed.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.

People who don't proof read and/or use a spell checker. :-X
