My biggest pet peeve has to do with rudeness and people being inconsiderate,especially in public places.I really have to make an effort not to get into a fight whenever it happens.

All the aforementioned plus having to put up with motorists (lane-changers) who cut you off right and left without signaling. (Well, take SP city with more than 400 reported transit- and road rage-related fights on a daily basis! Had I to drive in SP city, I would have died long ago.)

Márcio, my record is 8 hours. My house is 30km far from the office, so it was less than 4km/h. Stimulating, eh? ;)

Hi there

Marcio, I've just noticed my previous comment has nothing to do with what you'd written. You were talking about the transit-related fights, not the traffic itself. Anyway, taking eight hours to reach home would be a good reason to getting into a fight, isn't it?

By the way, let me add one more to the list:

Driving in Sao Paulo is a very big pet peeve!

Definitely stubbornness is one of my biggest pet peeves.

I hate when I'm explaining something to someone who apparently doesn't know about the subject I'm referring to. I try kindly to detail it in order to making the information helpful and stuff, but them don't cooperate. They always bring out the bad side! They think I'm trying to show off and make up something in order to put me on a trial. I thought of changing my way of expressing myself to others, but it wasn't worth. I don't know whether it has to do with pride or stubbornness, because they always keep insisting on showing their opposing side of view, even knowing they're wrong. They just want to 'push me downhill'. It doesn't happen only with me, my bff Jessica also goes through it.

Just my luck.
I hate when someone speaks bad about my religion, my idol and my team.

My current pet peeve is that I can't stand people claiming about problems in life. It drives me crazy, really.

Traffic in SP also, but this I turned around commuting by motorcycle. Ilive in SP and work in Alphaville, around 30 KM far away. :(

My biggest pet peeve are people who sit next to you on public transportation even when there are other seats available and when I'm going to work by train I also hate people who don't use perfume and leave theirs home without take a shower!! That's so disgusting!

I hate them!
