- People that are rude to waiters/servers/bartenders

- People who don't wait their turn to exit a plane by order of seat from the nose of the plane

Yeah being rude to servers is a good one. You can really tell a lot about someone when they are mean to servers.

Yeah, people who are rude toΒ anyoneΒ in the service industry, that's not even just a pet peeve, it's the best barometer for what kind of person you're dealing with.

I know there's no practical way to do this but in high school everybody should spend 1 semester working a sh*t job just so they have some empathy for what other people have to put up with who are less fortunate than them.

Definitely agree and especially regarding how they tip servers......I'm sorry Oz, you just walked into it! Couldn't help myself but to reply.

Accuse me of something I/we all know I didn't do but still try to tag me with it. Especially when there's obvious proof I was never even within "touching it with a ten foot pole" but they try and go for it anyways. Then the spitfire really comes out and some of the people considered the angriest have put their hands up and back out of the room while I burn it down verbally on that person.

Excuse making. Late to work? Traffic. Sliced your drive? It's because you had too big a breakfast. Poor? It's the presidents fault.

People who make excuses about the small things tend to make excuses about the big things. It's one of the most pathetic traits you can have IMO, and shows you lack agency in your own life to the extent that you cant even own the tiniest things

Related to this - people who think their particular set of excuses is more valid just because it's common or somehow superior.Β  The big one is anything involving kids.Β  Parents feel entitled to pass off so many different things, from work responsibilities to managing their kids in public, either because (i) many others are parents, so those who aren't need to just get on board or (ii) they think they're doing God's work by raising a family and thus have a right to burden everyone else.

People who don't use turn signals are stealing away time from people. It could be only a few seconds, or if there are people going straight after them, you miss the chance and have to wait all over again; it could be minutes. Economically speaking, this on a broad basis could be lowering potential GDP in a country. The extra time lost by these people is miniscule, but distributed across the whole world, it is definitely something. We should start a movement.Β

Isn't it already the law in a lot of places?

Separately, a lot of places are now instituting no turn on red due to how many people get hit crossing the street that drivers don't see. Idk the details on the loss of life vs time spent having to wait for the light to turn green though, but any loss of life isn't good by its nature.

When someone invites you to a thing on someone else's behalf and then they try to pass it off as their own event/thing... like trying to exclude you from something you were invited to if that makes sense. Kind of hard to articulate.

And people who do this 90% of the time invite somoneone annoying or problematic. It's never a third person that complements the situation.

People who say "could care less". The correct phrase is "could NOT care less".Β 

This is an idiom, so both are grammatically correct. But, I prefer the technically correct "could not care less" as you described.

craigmcdermott, what's your opinion? Comment below:

They can both be grammatically correct but one makes sense and one says the exact opposite of the intended sentiment. Because of this, using "could care less" is much worse than saying things like "for all intensive purposes" or "chomping at the bit" where the wording is incorrect but doesn't intentionally contradict the original intent.

I was sitting on a bench outside my place next to the parking lot in front of the lake enjoying the day. This guy walks by and pulls toenail clippers out of his pocket and put his foot on a car tire and randomly started clipping his toenails. I knew the driver of that car and it wasn't even his car! I think he must have been from an alternate universe.Β 

I started to get all psychological about it and thought about what he was thinking in his place grabbing the toenail clippers on the way out. Who does that? Who brings nail clippers around town with them? Very odd.

I saw this guy clipping his nails in the NYC subway. He looked like a well groomed homeless guy. Body language was like he didn't have a care in the world. He seemed happy. I wasn't sure to feel like "well at least this homeless guy is well groomed" or feel offended for him trimming his nails in the subway. You should have seen this guy - clipping every nail was a delight to him. He was getting pleasure out of it. Maybe he was super stoned or something idk.

In China it's a compliment to the chef if you chew loudly. I always said my dad would do well there because every chef would think he loved their food.

ironman32, what's your opinion? Comment below:

To sum it up, my biggest pet peeve is when other people are disrespectful of another's time. Encompasses a lot of stuff:

some examples (non-exhaustive:

- at OP, re-racking weights, if someone doesn't put them back basically they making it more difficult for the next person who uses them, or said another they make it more time consuming for the next person.Β 

- when people drive, they mess up but to correct it they try to do something that affects everyone else; making an illegal turn, trying to get into an exit lane at the last minute when there's a line.Β 

- grocery store, people parking in fire lanes, do self checkout when they clearly shouldn't

- playing music out loud when headphones would be appropriate, mainly in enclosed spaces.

edit:

-also add, pet peeve when people in relationships call themselves "partners". Not that I care too much about what it says, I just see it in print more now and it gives me a slight pause, which then annoys me. (I think you can only really have three titles; boyfriend/girlfriend, fiance, husband/wife.)

Some people at my clubhouse gym don't re-rack dumbbells and they leave them to the right and left of the bench. It's insanity.

one of my coworkers does it and I hate it so much. I am somewhat traditional in my relationship approach and don't like it, but it just sounds cringey to me.

Exactly. Not that I care too much, I know it originally started for certain groups that couldn't get married, and maybe if you're say 65 you don't want to get married for legal purposes (which someone can still get around anyway, shout out the guy who did the Elmo voice). I just think a lot more people use it if they don't get married, which again is fine to me, then you have a boyfriend/girlfriend.Β

NewIndustryHorizon, what's your opinion? Comment below:

People who don't tip at least 15% at restaurants (I will admit I've tipped 10-15% range a few times but the service was abysmal and for a good reason I decided not to tip 15%+, only happened a few times). I usually tip 18-20% for nice restaurants or waiters/waitresses who did a decent job and had what looks like a very busy shift.

Few of my childhood friends barely tip 10% and I think that's disrespectful. I usually convince them to put more down but I feel odd doing that as I know they are all doing financially well and aren't tight with cash.

People who miss the point.Β  Recent example.

Friend: "Did you see that video of Rogan saying the N word a bunch of times, its so messed up that the most popular host is racist."

Me: "No let me look . . [I then watch the video] . . dude that's pretty dishonest, every time he said the word, he was quoting someone else."

Friend: "Would you say the word?"

Me: "No, and he's unwise for saying the whole word, but it doesn't make him a racist"

Friend: "OK well you know not to say it, he should know too."

Just one example.Β  This comes up all the time in every context . . work, social, etc.Β  People just completely lose sight of the original point or the actual substance.
