One of my biggest pet peeves is during a conversation, the people who ask themselves questions and then answer the questions.. Example: Does it irk me to no end? Yes... Do I wish people would stop it? Yes.... Will I ever get over it? I don't know....

Lordy that drives me crazy...

What are some of y'all's pet peeves when talking to other folks?

I worked with a guy about 6 months ago for a week and when you would be discussing anything with him the whole time he would just keep saying right, right, right, repeatedly after about a day of that **** i just wanted to strangle him.

At the end of the day

I'm irritated when people interrupt myself or others during a meeting or conversation. If it's completely out of line, I'll call them on it. The other thing that seems to grind my gears are people who have incorporated 'At the end of the day' into their daily communication. Example "We all have certain responsibilities and expectations, but 'at the end of the day' , productivity & the bottom line will tell the story. Where did that come from & what is the point of using it. There is going to be an end to every day. Why not say 'At the end of next Friday'. I can almost predict when some people that I interact with are going to use this stupid arse phrase. :headknock

people who haven't bothered to take the time to learn to use the english language properly (especially while they're b*tching and moaning about all of the people speaking spanish), and people who use the same trite and hackneyed sayings over and over like, "outside the box," or, "at the end of the day," or "i'm just saying."

the most misused word in the english language is the word "myself." you don't say, "john and myself went fishing." you say, "john and i went fishing!"

gee, that one gets on my nerves. :smile:

People calling other people names because they can't think of anything else to say.

I hate people that drive like me and those that don't.

People that talk on their cell phone loudly in public places like no one else is around. Especially on those earphone/microphones that make it look like they're talking to themselves.
People that drive like Bobby, and people that don't. :rolleyes::smile:

One of the things that drives the nuts is when you are explaining something to someone, and they won't shut up, but try to tell what you are trying to explain. I have an associate that is new to the position. I don't try to tell him how to perform his profession,but in any position there are things that need to be explained as to how things are run. I cannot get him to hush as I explain and what happens he is trying to impress me with his knowledge and he misses what I am trying to explain. This shows after a month as he is sometimes clueless as to how the workings of the day are done. I am questioned all the time about "stuff" that had he shut the f--- up he would have known. It has gotten to the point I have to stop the conversation and say,"Let me finish my statement".

People that speak in a condesending manner, "Son, we don't put staples in our stage. Do we understand?" Instead of saying, "If you don't mind, lets find another way to hang that bunting without putting holes in the stage (2x4s)."

This was said to me by a junior college janitor while I was volunteering at a Senior Olympics ceremony.

It made me so mad that I said, " Evidently "we" don't understand, because it is not "our" stage, it is "your" stage, so "I" will keep stapling." I was a know it all Army lieutenant back then, but I still don't regret it. It peeves me when anyone talks down to others or talks to them like they are stupid.
