when drivers pull out in front of you and dont speed up
driving slow in the passing lane
turning without signaling
when drivers wont let U merge in traffic
sitting at the light after it turns green
people on their cell phone while driving
being cutoff by another driver
clerks at fastfood places who hardly speak English
when the driver in front of U hits the breaks without reason
seeing people protesting on street corners
crying infants near you on an airplane
Related to the word peeve meaning an annoyance or grievance, a pet peeve is something that a person has adopted(like a pet) to be extra annoying or upsetting to them. Like a pet, they pay a lot of attention to this peeve and may talk about it a lot and share funny pictures of it on the internet.
Tim: Why do the checkout clerks have to be so stupid?
Irene: I admit the conversation wasn't sparkling, but we got checked out quickly and efficiently, that's all that matters.
Tim: grr, I guess stupid people are just a pet peeve of mine.
My pet peeves are:
-Ugly women that think they are irresistible by men.
-Immigrants who live in America that cant speak English.
-People who put $30,000 in modifications to their shitty Honda Civic.
American(extremely pet peeved): THIS IS AMERICA WE SPEAK ENGLISH! GO BACK TO MEXICO UNTIL YOU LEARN HOW TO SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE!!!!
