    For me its people who use my tools without asking, especially if they damage them or don't put them back when they are done with them.

    a lot of things, like when my sister fake cries and my parents force me to give her something that is mine. annoying people also grind my gears. of course a lack of motor oil can also have this effect. :D

    Students at uni whose parents pay for everything.

    People who don't bother to turn up for class but make up a sob story and pass anyway.

    My boss.

    Lack of money.

    I have been sick before during a test, you have to show up for the final. I don't see why this would make you mad, people don't really have control over when they get sick.

    I'm wondering if I should post to the pet peeve's thread, but the posts are usually a big list of peeves, but I've only got one share so...

    The first reply to a new thread, and they quote the entire first post. I mean, what else are you replying to?

    - People who park illegally and turn on their hazard lights (you know, to make it OK)

    - People who cut lanes at the last minute to avoid traffic

    - People who give you 3" inches of personal space whilst standing in line

    - Guys with staring problems (no, you can't make my shirt unbutton itself by looking at it)

    :p

    During my math final, I was stuck next to this kid that had one of those calculators that beeps whenever buttons are pressed. So annoying.
