What kind of pet peeves do you have?

I have hyperhidrosis, so my hands have a tendency to sweat for no reason, other than touching certain textures like fake silk. ‘Cause of that, my hands will squeak against certain things and I absolutely hate the feel and sound of it.

People saying "exponential" ( cn ) when they mean "polynomial" ( nc ).

Exponential growth is scary.

I've never seen these terms expressed with c's and n's. Huh.

On the topic of maths, people say "minus" instead of "negative" makes me upset a little.

When people have no basic regard for others when in public, like walking really slowly or stopping, ignoring the people they're blocking.

The other way around is one for me, lol.

Also people taking photos in the street. I don't give a **** if you want to take a photo of big ben, stand somewhere that isn't the middle of the damn pavement. People just being oblivious generally annoys me I guess.

People that won't stop talking about the one thing they like that the rest of the group couldn't care less about. Who also rant about reviewers having opinions they don't agree with. Needless to say, I know someone like this IRL and while he's a friend dear god is it difficult to stay off the topic of Sonic games and IGN whenever he's in the room.

oblivious people / what michelle mentioned is a big one for me too. walking through crowded grocery stores especially is the worst. people walk extremely slow, swing their carts around, and just stand in the middle of aisles and stop abruptly in front of you, it's like everyone inside has become a zombie,

I work in a walmart so i deal with this constantly lol

When people rub their dry hands together. It sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Two things pop to mind right away:
(1) People who go slowly in the left lane on the highway/freeway. Left lane is the fast lane, move over and stop slowing me down you jerk
(2) When I'm at hockey games, people who get up during the middle of play to go to the bathroom/get food/whatever. Like you seriously can't wait for a stoppage before going? jeez, I'm trying to watch the game and you're blocking my view by going right then and there, please learn some common sense and stop being oblivious

When people say 'Well it works for me' especially in relation to buggy PC games.

Slow walkers is #1. I walk fast, and I don't want the people in front of me to be the reason I'm late/right on time to class (I'm typically about five minutes early. Lemme ree in peace!!!).

#2 is dripping water from sinks/showers/water sources that should have been turned off. The constant DRIP DRIP DRIP drives me crazy, and it's a waste of water if not attended to quickly.

I hate when people ignore me or treat me like an idiot when I'm talking. It's really annoying, especially if I'm trying to have a conversation.
Also when I ask someone to give me constructive criticism only for them to just say, "It's good!" or not even say anything.

Aggressive driving and vaping. And both at the same time reallly sucks.

Vaping, in a sense, is a good thing. It's designed to help people stop smoking, but I dont want to be walking down the street and have your giant-ass cloud of cinnamon-scented garbage float into my face.

People who don't have any sense of common sense regarding others in public. Yes, I really do enjoy the person sitting next to me during lecture with their legs spread wide open so that I can't have any room and putting their left arms on the arm rest where I have to put my own arm in order to write without tucking my elbow in to my stomach. And of course, can't forget about the guy who makes tapping noises during a test. He's my favorite.

People walking around blasting music from their speakers. Hey man, it's great that you love music. There's headphones and earphones for a reason though.

Exponential growth is scary.
Better yet, people using exponential to mean literally any function where the second derivative is positive. You can just say it's accelerating, thanks.

A pet peeve of mine:

One of my pet peeves is when people tell me to do different things at the same time. I get confused as to which one I do first.

Another one is when people keep asking me the same question AFTER I give my answer.
