Pet Peeves

A few of my pet peeves I have noticed a lot over the past few weeks:

- People who speed thru school zones
- People who talk really loud (like any of the rest of us in the room/bus/store care what you have to say?!?)
- People who think the rules don't apply to them (this is actually the basis for many of my pet peeves)
- Children who come to dance class and don't bring their dance clothes, shoes, etc.
- Parents who do not take their SCREAMING child out of the store/restaurant/other public place (I know, kids act up sometimes, but they need to be removed if they are inconsolable.)
- People who are loud in hotels - and people who let their kids run up and down the halls and slam the door
- People who talk during the movie/play/presentation - or even worse, sing along!
- People who get off the escalator and stop - or pull into the driveway of a parking lot and stop - or stop walking in the middle of a crowd of moving people!
- Men who do not remove their hats at the dining table
- Smart-ass T-shirts
- Misspellings on published materials - or TV ads or signs
- People who use "at" at the end of a sentence
- Local TV news reporters interviewing the most ignorant people they can find

I reserve the right to add to this list at any time in the future. Care to add your own??

Sorry to tell ya, but I have noticed that the loud talkers are teenagers more than half the time, so you'd better get used to it in the next few years!

I'll add people that stand in the subway doors and don't move over to let you in. I just throw them a shoulder.

Hmmm....I usually notice that the loud talkers are YANKEES!! :-)

How about this one: people who stand up in front of you at shows/parades/etc. and completely block your view! That happened to us twice at Disney - once when we asked them to sit, they were nice about it. The other time the lady just continued to stand! How rude!
