Used to have a Rhodesian Ridgeback who would try to lick our pet rats behind for any urine droplets. She would lick and then stand with her head up and make a tik, tik, tik sound as she swirled the aroma around in her mouth. Like watching someone sip a 25 year old single malt Glenlivet. Lol. Dogs are so gross.

When someone asks me what do you think about whatever and I give my opinion, but they don't agree and begin to argue. They asked for my op. How can it be the wrong answer  noidea

Related to that, people that ask questions not because they want to hear your opinion, but because they want an excuse to express their opinion to you.

Speaking of asking for opinions... what do you think about when someone only acknowledges what you just said for the purpose of changing the subject to what they really want to talk about?  @ walter, I hope you have an opinion on this so I can argue with you Grin

   Fights on TV or in movies.  Big guys will be smashing each other in the face with bare fists and there are no marks at all or if there are they're gone the next day.  If you get caught by a right cross square in the face you're going to look bad for a while.

The number of times I would get replies to emails that were sent out to the entire nursing student body at uni that just said "Thanks for the info!" because someone 1. would be replying to an email that didn't need a reply 2. didn't understand that Reply All means REPLY ALL. Infuriating to have my inbox filled with so much spam.

people who repeat the last thing you say.

we have 2 friends who do this.

I always figured if they ever talked to each other it'd be the world's longest echo Smiley

Telemarketers.  The sons of bitches should be illegal.  I suspect some day they will be.

Car commercials where people give each other new cars for Christmas.  Have any of your friends or family members ever given or gotten a new car for Christmas? Me either.

"I was thinking... I've seen you hinting all year that the one thing you would really want for Christmas is a large monetary drain that will require long term maintenance and upkeep and you didn't want any say in the colour or make so... I bought you a car without having a conversation about it to maintain the fleeting surprise of my gift!"

   I see chefs on TV do this all the time.  They'll want to add a hot pepper to what ever they're preparing.  They'll cut open the pepper to chop it up but first the scoop the seeds out and throw them away because they don't want to make the dish hot.  Like DUH!

    This isn't a pet peeve of mine but some people are deeply offended by pineapple on their pizza. I can understand this because pizza is something to be passionate about.  I like almost anything so I'm fine with Hawaiian Pizza.  I can't think of any sort of pizza I don't like.
