Somewhat related to rude behavior I suppose, but it can be completely unrelated as well.

 

For instance, one of my biggest pet peeves is seeing people wear socks and sandals. I really hate it. There is no good reason for me hating it other than the fact that it looks freaking stupid (especially thong sandals!), but it bothers me irrationally.

People who always talk about how busy they are, especially when they use it as an excuse.

"Sorry I never responded to your message... just too busy."

Everyone is busy.  It's not that hard to reply and say, "Saw your message... not able to answer fully now. I'll review and get back to you by x."

Oh boy, I actually keep a running list on my phone that all of my friends make fun of me for. Be warned, this is a doozy.

 

1. Breakfast for dinner

2. Ordering the same thing as someone else at dinner (*unless it's a specialty restuarant i.e. steakhouse)

3. Wearing flip-flops with pants

4. Arriving late to sporting events

5. Custom made jerseys

6. #National_____Day on social media (i.e. every goddamn sports team tweeting about National Hamburger Day)

7. Bathrooms that don't just say Men and Women and use some stupid phrase that I have to determine which is which before walking in

8. Dogs licking people

9. Random food: hard boiled eggs, string cheese, Noodles and Company

Hmm... 

I'd annoy you with:

 

1) That's an occasional thing for me.
3) If I'm at the beach.
9) Noodles & Co... I'm a fan...

Total agreement with you with:

 

2) That bothers me too... part of the reason I like to order last.
4) Horrible.  (Feels like Baltimore has become LA esque with that.)
8) Gross.  (Admittedly I'm a bit of a germaphobe.) It's the primary reason I don't care for dogs. (Don't get me wrong, dogs are better than people.)

5. I have a custom made Bernard Pollard jersey, because they didn't sell them anymore. Does that count? :-P

 

7. HAAAAAAATE!!!! HAAAAAAAAATE!!!!!

 

8. I have a dog (used to have two) and I can't stand her licking me. Ugh.

Whenever this question comes up, people not using their turn signal is usually the first thing I think of.

 

But lately things that are annoying me are phone related:

  • People calling you 10 times but never leaving a message
  • People leaving a message but talking so fast during it that you have no clue what they're saying.

So whoever orders first at a restaurant has dibs on that item? I don't see it as a big deal.

Agree regarding flip flops.

I'll add...

- People acting as if they know a lot about something that they clearly don't know much about

- The this is always how it's been reasoning

- People getting up a lot at games

- Eating pizza with a fork

- People who seem to have little to no awareness of their surroundings

Someone recently mentioned people deciding to drive past those in traffic and then merging at the last second. That's so inconsiderate.

And yeah, not using turn signals.

I'll go with something else I posted in that thread -- a-holes who drive monster trucks like sports cars.

 

Definitely a thing  I see routinely on I-70 and here in FredCo.

I'll shorten that to simply people driving monster trucks.

Chris Davis' "patience" at the plate.

I got a custom jersey because being in my 30's it felt weird wearing some kids name on my back. Should I have just gone blank on the back? How do others feel about that?

Not a fan of custom jersey's. 

 

I don't see any issue with getting a player's jersey other than it's hard to count on most players sticking with your favorite team for a long time. So I'd probably go with a retired player, which should alleviate your concern over having some kids name on your back.
