    Your Recent Pet Peeve

    Wikipedia:
    A pet peeve is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to them, to a greater degree than others may find it.
    In fancier words, it's things that wouldn't kill a kitten even if let alone, but could still annoy you enough to lose your sleep over.

    I'll start with mine by posting an excerpt of the chat I just had on IRC (Aegina is me):
    22:16 <~Aegina> random: i remember reading a slate.com article about people who like to use double spaces after a period
    22:16 <~Aegina> i mostly agreed with the author of the article (and disagreed with the hyperboles), but i then thought "i haven't seen any such people"
    22:17 <@Shini-tan> I know people who use double spaces
    22:17 <~Aegina> only now did i realise that some people i know on irc have been typing like that
    22:17 <@Shini-tan> I once did a project with one of them and I wrote the initial draft, then sent it to him so he could add/change stuff
    22:17 <@Shini-tan> and like
    22:17 <@Shini-tan> it ended up alternating single spaces and double spaces
    22:17 <@Shini-tan> ...
    22:18 <~Aegina> yeah i honestly don't know how people could think that's proper english or looks better
    22:18 <~Aegina> i could understand if they were using an old typewriter machine but >2013
    22:19 <@Shini-tan> most of the people I know who do that are english majors lol
    22:19 <~Aegina> betcha - amusingly those i found to use double spaces are always the type who try to use proper caps/punctuations everywhere even on irc
    22:19 <@Shini-tan> I've always used single space if only because it's less effort to type
    22:19 <~Aegina> even better, this demographic is also the one that makes typos like you're vs your (and the like) more often >_>
    22:20 <~Aegina> double looks bad!
    22:20 <~Aegina> i'm deeply affected by things like alignments
    What's your recent pet peeve?

    Post and let me know of the recent happening that bothered you, irrespective of how irrelevant it is to others. Feed me your frustrations and let me know of all the new things I didn't know before, the things that make this giant sphere called Earth a less and less palatable place to live on.

    In case it needs to be said: despite the way I introduced the thread, this is meant for fun, an FML kind of "fun." Please refrain from posting blithering rants or responding by flaming and making rude remarks.

    Re: Your Recent Pet Peeve

    it's nothing much, but those people that just block the escalator, so i can't walk them up/down, really, really, really annoy me. i usually want to use them, because it's faster than the stairs. and usually people stand on the right side to let other people that are in a hurry through.

    Re: Your Recent Pet Peeve

    『ALL HUMANS ARE ANNOYING! But I guess you all know that they seem like that to me so I'll just say whats most annoying recently to me...』

    『People who always have to poke you, touch you, speak to you, hold on to you, stop you only to say "[insert whatever they greet you with], your shoe laces are untied.]"... And thats considering they are freaking tied with reef knot! And they always have to continue doing whatever they are doing until you respond! And its not even 1 or 2 time per week, whenever one of the lace's end is outside almost every 10th passerby tries to/says that!!! ITS SO ANNOYING!!! >_<』
