I was replying to another thread and one of my pet hates came up (lip balms). Just wondered if anyone else had any wierd pet hates / compulsive things they do?

Mine are:-
Twisted coil phone cord.
I have, and mean HAVE to untwist any phone cord that gets all twisted around itself. Not sure why.

Lip balm:-
Too addictive and horrible to kiss

I thought this was going to be a thread about pets. In the US they are Pet Peeves, I was quite confused for a moment.Anyway, I have several lib balm included in there too. Actually just people who are constantly applying it. I only use it when I absolutly have to, but funny thing, if you don't use it all the time you don't need it all the time.Let's see, People who drive with thier headlights on in the daytime. (I almost had a stroke when they came out with day time running lights)When people whom I don't know touch me. (I don't mean like someone bumping into me or brushing by me in a crowded club, but when someone I don't know puts thier arm around me or grabs me or pats me on the back or something)People who talk baby talk to their pets. Bugger all! That pisses me off. In fact, the only thing I hate worse than that is when people talk baby talk to thier babys. That's a shure fire way to make your kids grow up stupid.People who randomly invite them selves into private conversations. (The other day I was sitting at coffe with a friend of mine, discussing personal things going on with her and her boyfriend, and this girl that neither of us knew just sat down and started giving her advice about the whole subject. My god, did I tell her where to stick that, [and probobly not where you'd exepect either.... she didn't])------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

6: Internet connections that keep cutting you off every time you try and post a f@#ing reply... like mine here at work !!!7: Ex smokers that moan incessantly about other smokers.. like my dad.. bless him.8: Readers Digest junk mail.9: People yapping [to me and around me]when Im on the phone.10: People that walk straight into you in clubs when you're spinning (even if you're swinging really carefully; with really bright things that could be seen from a mile away by a blind person !!)... and yes, I know its my responsibility to keep MY eyes open.. and I do.. and I very very rarely hit anyone given the ammount of time I spend spinning.. but sometimes people ARE just plain stupid. Nuff said..ps: theres a lot more in life that makes me happy than pisses me off..

Bendy,that probably won't help, I have the same problem as Durbs with twisted phone cables and I also have a cordless phone.I end up getting really mad when people don't put it back on the base, because then we have to sprint around all over the place trying to find it when it starts ringing

I also really hate it when people drive round with their fog lights on when there's no fog.And people who cut me up because I'm in an old, slow car, then think that my car has ultra-modern brakes and stop suddenly in front of me.In fact, a fair number of people driving really wind me up, I seem to get cut up, pushed into the wrong lane and generally bullied while driving, all because I drive a 32 year old car that people see as an obsticle rather than another driver.It's well worth the hassles I get though, it's a great car

DM: It's talking to your newborn that will make them smarter, and to your pets and it will make your plants healthier. However, babytalk and shows like Tellytubbies actually adversely effect children's vocabulary as well as how they form their words. I HATE babytalk and never did it to my son, who is extremely intelligent.People who are really aggressive to children/pets/one another in public. It makes wonder what they are like in private!

Can't help the day running lights in my car, they are on a sensor..sorry! But how about people who drive with their highbeams on all the time! Argh!Oh...people who lie to make others think they know everything. It is beyond annoying! Back it up with fact I say!Really closed minded people who won't listen when trying to give an oppossing viewpoint. Along with this is also the people who make up their minds they won't like somethign before they try it (*cough*my mother*cough*).I am going to add the tunnel visioned activists in here too, who think the world owes them something.

Ummm...I think not!Lastly, people who are soooooo weak they let others talk for them, decide for them, etc...and the people who take advantage them instead of empowering them. That really gets me!

One thing that really gets me - People who critisize you or constantly belittle you about something you're doing/saying/wearing...etc...simply to make themselves feel smug. When will they learn that putting other people down is not clever and not funny and certainly not the way to live to a ripe old age in this world.....???One of those compulsive things I do is always sticking with the first choice I madeeg.staying in the same queue in shops not changing to the one that looks quickeror putting my socks on last every morning or doing things in the order I first thought of them. It's kinda bad luck if I change stuff after I've thought of it....[This message has been edited by Ros (edited 27 January 2002).]

It has been proven that parents (and people in general) talk clearer and more slowly, in a different tone also, when talking to babies so that they can pick up the language easier. Don't know what the hell baby talk does though

My Pet Peeves/Hates are:People that act all zen and nice, but then say something really mean, and say they were joking, and for you to not take it so seriously. Passive Agressive people. hate that.People that zoom around/tailgate my 25 year old car, even though I'm going 5 above the speedlimit.Stupid people. Honestly I used to think there really weren't stupid people, or that I could at least stand them, but nope. Its pretty hard to do sometimes. Although it depends on what we're talking about....Noises when its really quiet. When people do repetitive tappings when you're taking a test. How anoying is that. Tapping a pen, and that is THE ONLY noise in the room... Or juggling backstage durring a performance. People can hear you dropping the balls...I'm pretty sensitive to sound... Loud noises make me feel really violated...Don't really hate this stuff, just buggs me. Noises stuff bug me the most... Never heard of not liking spiral tele cords, but I agree that when people use a spoon so it is wet, then use it to get sugar...geese, then it gets all clumpy and brown... -john--------------------------Search for meaning,not guided by thought.Help me find it,I am lost.

Rudeness and stupidity. And the two always seem to go hand in hand. In the book "What would Budda do?" there is a page titled: . . . when confronted by fools.When confronted by fools Budda would understand that there are people who go through life like children, doing only what they want to do neither caring nor understanding how their actions can effect others. How can you be angry with such unenlightened people? It would be like hating fire because it can burn. The fire doesn't burn you out of anger, The fire doesn't even know who you are, it is simply doing what fire does. Fire simply is.But I must admit, it doesn't make it any easier to deal with rudeness. Especially when people are rude and they know that it's not appropriate behavior, but the also know that nothing will happen to them so they just go on being rude.

One of all time biggest pet peeves is when people dress their animals up in stupid wanker clothing. I saw a woman walking her dog last night and they were wearing matching sweaters. It took all my will power not to set her on fire.

Similar to what has been mentioned I don' like people shaking my hand, invasion of space, cuddle me once you get to know me aside from that, NO TOUCHING!!!

Spitting - Discusting habit worse than smoking, (like lip balm) once you start you must continue.

People who interrupt, its just plain rude.
