    When people make fun of my "country accent", even when they have the SAME accent!

      Sparkly vampires. Actually, no, just vampires. Sparkly ones just annoy me more because they're a waste of perfectly good sparkle.

        Vamps are pet peeve of mine too. However, a well-written and acted vampire (Nick Cutler from Being Human UK comes to mind) can be very compelling. Werewolves are far more interesting in my opinion.

        As for the sparkle, any use of it must be accompanied with the proper sound effects.

            Pet Peeves? You are actually asking for my pet peeves?
            Ok. Here are a few of mine.

            Colleagues who arrive late to relieve me when I am due to finish my shift.
            The ever increasing prices of bus fares.
            Drivers who do not indicate where they are going when I'm trying to cross the road.
            Extended Warranties on electrical goods.
            Not being able to see my neices.
            "What do you mean by 'Oopps'?"
            Team Starfist protects all. But having a fully loaded P-90 helps...
            Reality is an illusion... Created by those who cannot handle Stargate...!
            Jankowski's Rules: Rule 1: Check your Six!
            I'm not perfect. But parts of me are excellent I also cook...!
            To thy own self... Be true
            May the odds.... Be ever in your favour..!

              People who walk right in front of you and don't bother apologizing or saying excuse me, sometimes i just feel like continuing walking along the same path instead of moving out there way (and walking into them), but i'm too nice

              Another one to this, people who walk right in front of you, and just stand there and start browsing at stuff or talking to someone, it drives me nuts

              People who don't respect other people or other peoples stuff

                Another peeve of mine is...

                Intolerant people, especially people who do not respect another persons choice of lifestyle.

                    People who just stop in the middle of a road, bicycle lane or street without any warning and then continue to either just stand there or go to the side without any signaling/indication.
                    Unmade Plans (WIP: 11/20):
                    Sam's life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy. The decision to keep the baby and raise it on her own will alter her life forever. Relationships are put to the test, especially the one between her and Jack. She doesn't know what to expect from him and he surprises her at every turn.

                    My S/J fics can be found on FFnet and AO3. I also tweet and tumble about the ship and my writing/stories.

                      God, don't get me started!

                      People who walk down the street while texting or otherwise using their phone/iPod so they're not looking where they're going.

                      People who say that you shouldn't listen to the same music as your parents. (I saw this a lot on the last forum I was on, even with one of my favourite people...)

                      Smokers, litterbugs

                      Cyclists who ride on the pavement which doesn't have a cycle path, and the ones who are on the road that don't stop at lights or think they can do what they want and that they don't have to obey the rules of the road because they're not in cars. Because of them, people probably think I'm the same when I'm on my bike.

                      And while we're at it, motorists who cut me off or think they have the right of way over me because I'm 'just a cyclist'.
                      And the ones who don't signal too.

                      Green Day.

                      People who mistreat CDs, records and/or books.

                      People who don't know how to relax. Makes me edgy...

                      Salespeople and cold callers. Circular junkmail too.

                      Gender and sexuality stereotyping.

                      When people use phrases like "At the end of the day" and "You know what I'm saying?"
                      Oh, and when people use the word "like" when talking about what they or someone else said, as in "And she was like "...", then I was like "...""

                      Irresponsible parents, particularly the ones who, when their kid is acting up in pubic right near you, say something like "Stop that or that lady will tell you off!" Yeah, that's supposed to be their job, not yours.

                      Maybe just people in general!
                      Oh yeah, and the fact that I keep pressing the ';' key instead of the 'L' key!!!

                      Wow, that was long...! 0.o;
                      "Thanks to denial, I'm immortal."
                      "A big 'Hello' to all intelligent life out there, and for everyone else, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys!"
                      "Excuse me, barmaid? You seem to have brought me the wrong offspring. I ordered an extra large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fishbone!"
                      "I'm Jack. It means... what's in the box?"

                            Gracious! I'm sure I've a long list, but since it says "a" pet peeve, I'll dole them out a bit at a time. First:

                            Screaming babies or children and the parents ignore them.
