honestly not my pet peeve but something i point out a lot

FUNFACT
pet peeve = largest peeve, the one that annoys you the most
peeves = all the rest
meaning when people say "what are your pet peeves" it's kinda? idk like it's not correct ^^'
i guess if you were asking for their biggest peeves, but pet peeve is like 
THE ONE
that gets you

mhm! i think i learned about this like last year and now whenever i hear pet peeves it like sets off pistons in my brain XD the more i think about it though, the more it kinda.. like pet peeves is acceptable because english sucks but by the like idea of peeves/pet peeves it should be differentiated

Yea, I guess word meanings do change over time as well? It's a language thing, and by now people have adapted that as the meaning of "pet peeve". But it's just how you see it! ^^

Background noise during voice calls, especially when I'm recording it (like if me and my friends are playing something for YouTube). It's always from the same person, too.. >.>

this is old but

people i don't know touching me and then proceed to keep touching me even though i told them not to do that. and actually getting offended when i tell them to back off. even my friends and family aren't always allowed to touch me so what rights to me do you think you have weird stranger.

also people being annoyed or pissed at me when my mental illness act up, i'm not enjoying it either bud so calm down you are not helping.

People telling me to hold still.
I mean I get it, if I'm clicking a pen, rocking my chair, or tossing something around (and occasionally dropping it), it can get annoying and distracting to others. On the contrary, if me discreetly tapping my fingers on my leg without making a sound annoys you to the point of wanting to tear your hair out, the option to just not look at me exists...

Terrible grammar.
Everyone makes a few mistakes and typos time to time, especially if they're typing out something really fast and don't bother to re-read it, but there is no real excuse for terrible grammar. By terrible, I mean things so bad that it makes you wince while reading them, e.g. "u an idiot evrythng u say is rong and im the only rite one here oranj juice is objectivly te most tastyest drink u suck." Punctuation and spelling do not exist to these people. Additionally, please learn basics such as when to use to, too, or two; there, their, or they're; and apostrophes; doubly so if you're a native English speaker. It's not that hard.

People using the word, "literally" incorrectly.
No, you are not literally dying of heatstroke. If you were, I'd call an ambulance while getting you into shade and finding some water.
Now next time someone says something like that, I'm really tempted to fake calling the police and loudly reporting, "<so-and-so> is dying of <some condition>! Please, send for medical staff quickly!"

When online arguments go awry.
In most online arguments, it doesn't matter who wins. Just keep from killing each other via keyboard, at the end of the day everyone wants to just go home happy.

There are a few unofficial rules to debating online specifically in communities (some parts of Quora, science-and-math-oriented YouTube channels and websites, etc) or about topics aligned towards more scientific matters:

- When you make claims, cite your sources. Flesh out your argument, otherwise be prepared to be trampled and your view ripped to bits.
- Never resort to purely ad hominem rebuttals. It transforms the entire thread into a shitshow.
- Adding to the previous statement, abide by BNBR (Be Nice Be Respectful). Don't be unnecessarily rude in replies.
- On the contrary, when someone starts to play dirty, it is acceptable to ratchet up your snarkiness levels to match while still making valid arguments. This is especially effective when people resort to solely throwing insults, repeating arguments, and not addressing opposing positions because they are being defeated and refuse to led the argument conclude. Doing this is more for entertainment of everyone at the expense of the offending party than actually progressing your argument, seeing as you've usually already won by this point.

Arguments can be both peaceful and heated at the same time, and these are fun to both engage in and watch. People calling each other "fucking idiots," "shills," and "incompetent pieces of <insert creative insult>" as if they were middle-schoolers bickering, however, are not very enjoyable.

Yea, all of those are relatable! Though I'm less bothered by online grammar these days, it's a hopeless case :XD:

But yea, arguing... a lot of people don't know how to and their definition of an "own" is to throw in a sweetie behind their sentence and go full ad hominem. It's pretty bad to witness :XD:

When people (Namely my brother) has an inability to sit completely still. Like he's always twitching some part of his body and he just can't be still aND IT ANNOYS ME SO MUCH??? It's not like he's incapable or has a medical problem or anything because he can physically do it and has done it about once but lIKE DUDE.

I don't see it often. It's rather the fact that people put sometimes a space between a question mark or an exclamation mark that annoy me. Like "this !" instead of "this!".

Oh goodness I've left this in my notifications for days while I was at work experience - I get really peeved when people prioritize friendships (e.g people choosing over their friends in a way? Like boyfriends over best friends, that kind of stuff) or people trying to change themselves to be friends (I don't know why these are all people related haha).

On that wonderful note, I also dislike how food packaging has grown smaller yet the price stays the same. xD

I agree with you with the first one. I never had a real best friend, or a friend I'm closer with, and priotizing people just cause more and more problems anyway.

wow there are some rlly angry replies here lmfao what have you started biens
i have many tbh but the biggest i think is when people use the wrong you're/your, there/their/they're etc. i get that everyone makes mistakes (and i excuse people who dont have english as their first language!), hell even i use the wrong ones sometimes but like. when it's consistent and you repeatedly pick them up on it like. come on you're in uni you should know, people

edit: lmao i guess im not rlly entitled to comment on grammar and spelling when my text typing is appalling but oh well

I'm not a native speaker, but I find it simple.
You're is you are. Your means it's yours.
There means that place. Their means it's theirs... I don't find any problem with it. The only relation between them are their spelling.
