That's never bothered me, but what does is when folks say they're vegan or vegetarian except for fish, or they still eat chicken now and then. Call yourself a pescatarian or say you don't eat a lot of meat. As a vegetarian, it is annoying when people expect me to still eat animals. 

they're called flexatarians they eat meat now and then .

I avoid the various dietary/food preferences labels and just describe myself as a picky eater. I will not eat seafood at all. I sometimes eat meat, but occasionally will go for a few weeks without any. I like some fruits and vegetables, but often can’t stand popular fruits such as strawberries. At the same time, I can usually find something tolerable at most restaurants or at a party hosted by family or friends, so I don’t feel like my food preferences cause anyone any real problems.

Bouncing off this to bring up another peeve of mine - people who insist on correcting people when they call a strawberry a berry or a tomato a vegetable - or the one that really gets me cross a peanut a nut.  There is such a thing as common usage - and we all know what we mean - and arrgh, is this done so people can show off or what?  And at the end of the day does it really matter?  And yet I have friends who HAVE to correct me anytime they hear me say something they perceive as wrong in this regard.  Whatever.  Just stop it!  There, I feel better now 🙃.

I'm allergic to a lot of seafood, so I just avoid it altogether. I don't mind going out with friends who eat seafood, inevitably almost all seafood places have chicken or steak or a salad I enjoy, but I have come across quite a few people who either question if I'm really allergic or just don't like it, or question which types of seafood I'm allergic to. I'm lucky enough to not get breathing issues with my allergy but I swell up like a balloon and end up covered in hives. I've learned the hard way I'm allergic to shrimp, lobster, swordfish, and a few others, and that's when I gave up anything water-based at all. I had one guy once start listing all different kinds of fish and other seafood in an attempt to see if I had tried them and "how did I know I was allergic to them if I hadn't tried all of them?" Luckily, my friend broke up with that jackass shortly after and I never saw him again.

I feel you fellow picky eater. I've gone to dinner parties and eaten nothing but black olives and bread. Which brings me to another peeve...

They're just being pedantic bores. Which reminds me of a funny line from The Big Bang Theory, "It's wrong to say an apple is an orange. It's wronger to say that an apple is a suspension bridge."

Pedantic Bore here (2nd class!)

It's a discussion between Sheldon and Stuart.   Stuart says that something is very wrong and Sheldon snarks that there is only right and wrong.  And then Stuart skewers him with:

"To say a tomato is a vegetable is wrong.  To say a tomato is a suspension bridge is very wrong."

 

However, they are both wrong because a tomato is a vegetable.  My pet peeve is that people don't understand that vegetables are constructs - people define what items are vegetables and they include roots (potatoes), stems (celery), leaves (spinach), flowers (artichokes), and the fruiting bodies of plants (tomatoes).  Botanically tomatoes are berries, which are fruiting bodies.  But tomatoes are always vegetables because we all decided that they were.

If this seems familiar to you, it's the same rant I posted over the weekend on the Top Chef forum.

And I still hate ants.

I’m not allergic to seafood, but I got so tired of people telling me to try their fish because it’s not fishy or I’ll love it the way they cook it. So I just tell everyone I’m allergic. I used to work with ESL students and I can say I can’t eat fish in 6 foreign languages now. It’s just strange how protective people are of seafood.

I am also not a fish eater.  I have zero issues with other seafood, but I cannot abide the texture of fish.  Meat is not supposed to be flaky.  I have heard it all over the years and people still insist that if I only tried this fish, or this preparation then I will magically be able to like it.  Nope, the fish is still flaky and I gag.  It's the only protein I will not eat.  I will try almost anything else.  I'm really not that picky of an eater and can usually find something to eat wherever I am.  Unless the only option is fish with Pico de Gallo (cilantro is the devil's weed, and I cannot eat raw onions).

I don't have them, either, so I've been generally lucky to avoid that stuff as well. I have heard "Baby Shark", though-a few years back, when I was doing some temp work at a tax place, I was working there one Saturday and the mall was having some event for kids in the main area of the building. They played music, including "Baby Shark", and from where I was in the mall I could hear it. 

My heart goes out to any parents who've had to put up with that song :p.

I feel a bit bad complaining about this, because I love my friends who do it. To be honest, I don't like receiving texts of TikTok or different videos.

My actual peeve - service providers who drop off the face of the earth. I need a few windows replaced. If I do get a call back (which is rare), there isn’t any follow up to that call. If you don’t want my business for whatever reason (too busy, project too small), tell me that upfront so I don’t waste more of my time. Don’t tell me you will call me the next day to arrange measuring my windows, then never return my emails or calls.

I sing Prisoner of Society to my cats. Obviously changing the lyrics to " 'cause I'm a CAT, and I know everything so I meow BACK 'cause I'm not listening to anything you say" and "And if you count to three (meow meow meow), you'll see there's an emergency, you'll see I'm out of fooood and a prisoner of your houseeeeee". My BFF and I made up our lyrics 20 years ago and still sing them instead of the actual lyrics. Her husband thinks we're weird (he's right).

I’ve seen a lot of people complain about FedEx, but UPS (not to be confused with USPS) is somehow always the delivery service I have problems with. In the last year, it’s been: Package just disappeared off the face of the planet while in transit, twice (2 completely different orders). Only box 1 of a 2-box item arrived (the table top without the legs and hardware isn’t going to do me much good). 
 

Today is doubly irritating. Package A is a couple of heavy boxes of materials for replacing my door molding upstairs. Got the “track your delivery on a live map” notification this morning. Four hours ago the live map showed the delivery truck about two streets over and six blocks away from my house. Since then, the truck has left my neighborhood entirely, gone to a small town down the road, and is only now one street over and a few blocks away. What sense does it make to have the same delivery truck go into a subdivision and deliver some stuff, leave and go 10 miles down the highway, and then return hours later to the same subdivision?

 

Package A arrived at the local distribution center around 5am and was loaded onto a delivery truck around 6:15am. Package B is a small box; it arrived at the local distribution center around 4am. It did not get loaded onto a delivery truck, and the most recent notification says it won’t be delivered until tomorrow. I just don’t see how this makes sense, that the package that made it to the distribution center later gets delivered today, while the one that got there later is on the delivery truck. 
 

Obviously the timing on the delivery of these two packages isn’t a real problem, but it does make me question their efficiency. Coupled with the other problems I have encountered with them over the past few years, they will not ever be my first choice for shipping things. I understand others may have had very different experiences.

My experience mirrors yours exactly. I never, ever ship out anything via UPS because almost every time something comes to me via UPS I get to watch the package wander around the USA whilst tracking it on line. I live in California and one time a package from within California via UPS went first to Pennsylvania and then to Arizona, back to the East Coast before finally making its way back to Cali. Its really unfortunate because when I lived in the mountains our UPS delivery guy was the *best*, wading through snow and mud to deliver packages no matter what - not his fault the overall system seemed to be broke.

Here is my pet peeve for the day: I work at a food pantry three days a week, and on Mondays I team with a young man to take three fairly heavy bags of groceries out to people's cars (since the Covid - before that they could come get stuff and haul it themselves). We pack one bag of non-perishable stuff (cereal, pasta, sauce, tuna...), one bag of fresh fruits and vegies, and one bag with meat/chicken/fish, eggs, butter, cheese and bread and dessert. Due to sanitary regulations we cannot take food back once a client has touched it so if people indicate they don't like this or that, or can't eat this or that we just tell them to pass it on to someone else.

Lately there are more and more people driving up and as we approach the car we get told "I can only eat organic vegetables" and/or "I don't eat fish - could you get me some steak or ground beef instead?" and/or "I need gluten free bread, not the regular kind". Jeez, people - if you are hungry enough to be coming to a food bank for free food, take what you are given, eat what you can, pass along the other stuff and be grateful! One passive aggressive type told me Monday afternoon (because I could not guarantee that the vegies were organic) "Oh, well, I guess I will just have to go without...". Yes, yes, you will.

Hoarding and panic buying. I live in an area that is impacted by the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack. As a result people have completely lost their mind and are panic buying gas. Which means there is a pretty big gas shortage because assholes are filling multiple gas cans. Colonial Pipeline says they are aiming to have the line back on by Friday. Federal and State governments are working to bring gas in from other states, if needed. If everyone just kept their shit together there would be no shortage, no 2 hour lines, no fights at the pump, etc...

Gas isn't toilet paper. If you store it improperly it's going to explode.

I feel this way about lamb. I am disgusted by it, the smell is so bad to me, that if I end up with someone eating lamb near me, I have to pretend they're eating beef that has gone bad because otherwise I will projectile hurl. It should be against the law to cook or eat lamb. @Ohiopirate02, my version of fish with Pico de Gallo is lamb with goat cheese, & I nearly puked typing that.

 

EDITED: My husband had a "beef that has gone bad" shish wrap today for lunch. I had to pick it up at the restaurant. Now my car & house are both contaminated. Does anyone know if fire will kill the "beef that has gone bad" germs?

I heard nothing in April so I called last week and they said they "think" they can start the excavation on the 18th. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Good luck! Hopefully putting down a deposit gets you on their schedule.

I actually have multiple projects that need to be done (total renovation of the main bath, replacing the front stairs/porch columns) but I’m not even going to try right now. None need to be done immediately, but it’s frustrating that I have the money but can’t find anyone to do the work.

We've been having the same problems.  What annoys me most isn't that people don't call me back (although that's bad) it's when they do call, give us a quote, we accept the quote and then nothing.  We contact them a few times and still nothing.  I mean at least give us the courtesy of telling us WHY you aren't going to be doing the work for us.  I end up checking the email or text messages thinking we've  somehow insulted someone.  It's so frustrating.

Could be as a result of the way the truck was loaded.  If there were heavy/unwieldly packages in between your neighborhood deliveries, driver may have chosen to get those off, rather than have to essentially reload the truck.

WOW! I actually got a call back from one of the practices I left a message for. They said because I've already been seeing a rheumatologist I don't need to get a referral from a GP (which is great because I don't have one). Instead of making me contact my old doctors office to send my records they had me sign a release form and faxed it to them. I  have an appointment scheduled in about 2.5 weeks. I hope the doctor *gets me*. I'm pro-science but I am not pro "all the drugs". The dosage I am on now works and allows me to keep up with my social drinking, which my other doctor wasn't a fan of BUT said as long as my liver is fine it's fine. Just don't take my pills with a shot (my old doctor GOT ME!)

The problem is that these people do think that gas is toilet paper. And it will light a fire under their butt, figuratively and literally.

I wouldn't care if they used it as TP but I don't want to see gasoline in the sewer lines.

Majorly pet peeve.  The Jerry Springering of the American culture.

Dude.  MTV barely shows ANYTHING these days other than Ridiculousness. Seriously it's on about 20 hours out of the MTV broadcast day.

My brand new peeve is mangoes that go from hard to overripe in a tiny time frame. Like one day it's rock hard, the next day it's overripe and needs to be eaten ASAP.

Like pears...
