What are your biggest pet peeves?
I have several, but I will share my top two at the moment.
1. Mean people. I prefer nice over mean any day.
2. When people don't follow through on their word. This drives me nuts. If you say you are or are not going to do something, then stick to it. I understand sometimes we have extenuating circumstances and that's fine, but it shouldn't be a common occurrence.

RE: What are your biggest pet peeves?
Right now one of my biggest pet peeves is people who use the word 'organic' correctly.

But this is merely one of many.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

My pet peeve is agriculture and everything that's happened since it was discovered.

I highly agree on these, but those are a matter of principle, which goes far beyond pet peeves for me. Another principle one for me is when somebody does something for somebody and then throws it in the person's face down the road.

I get really annoyed by bad grammar. I find it really annoying when people who grew up speaking English constantly use common words in the wrong context:
- Your and you're
- There, they're, and their
- To, too, and two

People who use an "s" on nouns that are already plural. They'll say things like "peoples", "childrens", etc.

Bless you as a response to sneezing. It's asinine; why the fuck are you blessing me for sneezing? When the fuck did a sneeze warrant a divine proclamation? Virtually every other language responds wishing the sneezer good health, that makes sense; blessing doesn't. So I always respond with gesundheit instead.

Your biggest pet peeve is the progress of humanity from nomadic hunter-gatherers to centralised communal agrarians?

My pet's peeve is when he wants a treat and he grabs his sock-puppet monkey and tosses it at me, and I ask him what he wants. I know he's thinking "Why me O Lord ? Of all the available owners, I get this idiot dude. He KNOWS when I throw something at him, I want a treat. Is he too stupid to learn that trick, or what ?"

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Yeah but in different words. From egalitarian hunter/gatherer/scavengers to scarce resource dependent sexually repressed drones whose continuation is dependent on the suppression of most of the instincts that would have otherwise contributed to our survival, the end result being a life that no matter how successful, just never feels quite right.
