#X) When you are in a hurry to be somewhere, like getting ready for Liturgy or an appointment for example, and you shave in a hurry and manage to screw up, getting a shaving cut that keeps bleeding and delays you for like five minutes while you try to figure out a way to stop the bleeding.

That's why you should be prepared to be to any event 45 minutes early.

Better yet, don't shave. We all know that beards are Orthodox. Wink

Or that; personally I like to follow Clement of Alexandria's advice on shaving.

Pet Peeve #5: When a page loads with a bunch of links (e.g. at a news site), I try to click a link, and the page changes a split second before I click the link, moving the page and causing me to open up a completely different page.

Pet Peeve #6: When I point out to a grocery store employee that the meat I just picked up is expired, and they give me dirty looks. Dude. The stuff looks like it expired three weeks ago. Why are you mad at me?

OCD #27: Checking to make sure I have my debit card when I go out. I don't carry a wallet, just the stuff I'll need. And I don't want to get to the store only to find out that I don't have the card, so I tend to make sure I have the right card, put it in my pocket, wait 30 seconds, pull everything out, make sure I have the right card again, put it back in my pocket, and so forth (several more times). It's the only card that's green and has my bank's name on it, why do I need to keep looking at it?  Roll Eyes Grin

#27 is something I do quite frequently.  Especially whenever I am carrying more than two or three dollars (I rarely carry cash, preferring to use my debit card), I have to do precisely what you do, but in order to make sure it's still in my wallet and didn't somehow fall out.

Pet Peeve #12: When people have a near-empty profile on dating sites, and then say things like this: "If you're going to message me have something intelligent to say. Don't just message me and say 'hello ur pretty'".  Well what exactly am I supposed to talk about? The economy? My thoughts on the current instability in the middle east? My favorite movie? How I like the rock formation in your one picture? I mean, it'd help if you gave me a little something on your profile to work with...

The use of "Awesome" as a noun. It used to be sort of cute but now it's ubiquitous and completely assimilated and lame. For example, Comcast now describe themselves as "The Future of Awesome."

When I use a $100 dollar bill to buy something at the store and the clerk holds the bill up into the light to check if it is real or not. Do I look like the type of guy who would pay you with a fake $100 dollar bill?

When I go to Costco and the workers in the grocery section refuse to give me samples because "my parents aren't there"....It's humiliating. I'm practically a man.

When the drinking vent on my metal coffee cup gets clogged and messes up the flow of coffee entering my mouth, only to suddenly unclog moments later where I am unexpectedly met with an overwhelmingly hot stream of coffee gushing forth into my mouth, burning my throat.

When I am in a public restroom using one of the men's urinals and instead of using one of the countless other available urinals in the room, the next man who walks in HAS to take the urinal right "next-door" to mine. Seriously. There are so many others. Couldn't you use one that is at least one vacant urinal away from my urinal? I can't pee in peace knowing that some perv might be looking at my junk...

Someone breaking wind in an enclosed area.

Ignoring two people talking and interrupting the conversation with their own as if it were more important.

Trying, horribly, to talk over me.  I'm usually pretty soft spoken, but I have a loud set of pipes when required.

Touching my food, for any reason.  It's my food, touch your own food.

Backwash.  It's just gross!

Port-a-johns.  It's just gross.

People who do things with some distorted sense of equality (because they can) without regard for anyone else (means its not really equality, rather something YOU want).

Man, I could go for days, but I'll finish with and OCD.  Cards or papers on a counter not being evenly stacked and placed.  I have gotten strange looks from bank tellers as I fix this on the customer counters.

Commercials on the Internet.  I can't tell you how furious it makes me.  Commercials are one of the many reasons I rarely watch TV and when I do, it's usually a channel without commercials.  If I'm paying for the service, I don't want commercials.  If its free, I live with commercials.  Like Pandora, Hulu or Netflix.

I don't have pet peeves so much as things that turn me into a homicidal maniac:

1. Interrupting me with a stupid question or something stupid to do when I have plenty of my own work to do
2. Telling me I have an attitude when if that person wouldn't have said what they said with their attitude I wouldn't have my attitude to begin with
3. Telling me my kid is fussy because I am upset when in reality I am upset because he started fussing first
4. In general telling me I am in the wrong when clearly I am not in the wrong, the other person is
5. Or telling me to get over my problems when they aren't even their concern or worse they caused them
6. Thinking "everyone" means them when it clearly is a major exaggeration
7. When people leave their trash all over places that aren't theirs

OCDs, don't know

Weird to check for twenties, unless you get a lot of fake ones. But my fifties and above are always checked even if I am a friend of the business. I doubt I would ever not catch a counterfeit bill, but I could and they need to check.

All my craigslist transactions are done a specific business so they can check the currency.

I remember back in the days when you could just xerox a bill and feed it in to an old change maker at a laundry mat, car wash, arcade (till they started giving out tokens for this reason), and get take your change.

Seeing the same people show up to church 30 minutes early for a Christmas performance who are regularly 30 minutes late for the Divine Liturgy.   Huh

Its not so much a pet peeve or OCD, but it is an interesting observation, and a reflection of our priorities.

Some of mine can be reposted in the begging irony thread.

Let's start.

The loss of the difference in meaning of bring and take in American English.

It seems bring is winning the battle for both meanings, although people at times use take to mean bring.

When people grumble and say, “It isn’t your place to judge.”  Firstly, it kind of is when you think about it.  We are told to hold one another accountable.  Secondly, no one is passing final judgment on anyone, that’s Gods job.  We just make observations based on what is presented and construct an analysis.  Thirdly, only people in a position of authority and power are able to pass the judgment being complained about.  Fourthly, people are judged every day for a variety of reasons.  You don’t get to pick and choose what you don’t want to be judged about.

When you are about to look to see if someone replied to your posts in a thread and apparently since your last visit things took a turn for the worst and it gets moved to the politics section.   Wink

But if it was that bad, I am sort of glad I didn't get to see what was said.  It all works out in the end.  Hey, if thats the case, why am I posting in this thread.

Ok, people who post in the Pet Peeves thread and aren't complaining. Embarrassed

shoot, i thought that was illegal

It is not and it is probably one the easiest things you can do to significantly reduce your chance of being in an accident.

It is because it's dangerous, but try telling that to 87 year old Betty or 19 year old Mike, neither of which can drive.

How? A lazy google will show you that the increased visibility of headlamps and rearlamps helps keep you out of accidents. It's why motocycles in many (all?) States MUST have them on all time. To bad they don't have sufficiently spread lights so you can tell from the perceived distance between the two lights how far away it is and depending on how quickly that distance is changing how fast it is traveling.

You are wrong.

People who make claim of knowledge when they clearly have none on a topic.  Or at the very least, they have no idea what you are talking about. police

Learning "obsolete" definitions in the online dictionary really are not obsolete.  People should stop playing around with the dictionary.

See your post above.

A buddy of mine does insurance. Some companies give you a small discount if you are willing to always drive with your lights on.

Actually this one of my pet peeves: nearly every dictionary save for the Oxford series.

They place the meanings for words in order by their earliest known usage rather than using real lexicographical research to determine the most common usage of the word. It costs a lot of money to do this, so most publishers of dictionaries go the lazy route. Heck most are just using lexicons they bought from other companies which they are no longer using.

Oxford American for ESL speakers or anyone who wants a real single volume dictionary.
