People who throw their cigarette on the sidewalk and don't stamp on it to put it out. Really bugs me for some reason.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

People who stop in doorways.

GO INTO THE ROOM AND LET THE PEOPLE BEHIND YOU GET THROUGH THE DOOR.

Me, having to go back on Maury for the 5th time next week because I still haven't found out who my baby daddy is.

JP - thats one of mine also. Why DO people throw cigarette butts on the floor, anyway? cant they put out the cigarette and then deposit it in a trash recepticle? I hate it when people litter the streets as though their mother was gonna come along and clean up after them.
And don't get me started on mothers with baby carriages in NYC...OY, Possums!
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

people who take up more room on the sidewalk than their body requires... groups of people who need to spread their groups out on the sidewalk and not let anyone else by... people walking and talking on cellphones oblivious to those around them... honkers... solicitors on the sidewalk who grab your arm to get your attention... some of today's fashion sense (see thread "Strange Fashion")...

When someone has part of their collar turned up, and they're not aware of it. Also, when there's dust on the TV.

Solicitors on the sidewalk who don't take no for an answer as well:

"Excuse me"
"sorry, I can't stop"
"but it will only take a moment"
"no, I can't stop"
"but if I could just..."
"I SAID I CAN'T STOP ASSHOLE!"

my pet peeve is when my pet pees (on my bed). It may sound like fun because it rhymes, but it's not.

Oh yes, moving down on crowded subway trains. This morning I got filthy looks and lots of tutting from people as I politely said "excuse me" and moved into the centre of the car as they were all crowding around the door. It made me want to scream.

I'm not sure there is enough room...but my biggest

People who go to the grocery store, fill a cart with food/stuff, stand there while each item gets rung up until the order is complete AND THEN searches for the checkbook in her purse to start writing it out....

I mean serioulsy -- did she think the groceries were going to be free this week???

It annoys me SO much when people confuse "good" and "well", or they say "quick" instead of "quickly". Or, they mess up any other easy grammar mistakes that can be avoided by actually paying attention in school.
I have my books and my poetry to protect me...

Oh yes, I hate when the doorway is so squished by people trying to get in, and then I see there's freaking space in the middle. And I hate when people put their bags on a seat when it's an obviously crowded train. I will say "excuse me" so they move it, so I can sit down.

I hate my elevator. I hate it, hate it. Today it probably took as long as the train does from Queensborough Plaza to 59th and Lex to get to my floor. And don't even start me when someone will say, get on at 33, and get off at 34. It grates on my nerves.

And lastly, I hate when I'm stuck on a narrow street, and a slow car is in front of me, and I'm basically stuck. I have no patience for slow drivers.

Yes, Rath!

People who knock you down trying to get somewhere and low and behold they are going to the same staircase you are and they take each step as if its going to kill them!

Hold the door for someone and not getting a Thank you ticks me off! That was a good one.

People (women especially, sorry ladies) at the grocery store who waits till the cashier TOTALS her order, THEN she gets her wallet out of her purse....oh not enough cash????? Ill write a check!!

Oh! People who stop the elevator doors from closing so they can get on! Because this usually results in another person doing the same thing until the whole car is packed.
