After a lot of deliberation though, I managed to compile a 'Top 5' (I left out 'rudeness/general lack of manners' because everyone hates that.)
#1 My number one hate, ever. Religious symbols worn by 'atheist' angsty teenagers, desperately trying to be edgy by wearing what they believe to be ~blasphemous symbols. I once saw a photo of a girl wearing a pair of denim shorts (so short that her ass was hanging out, fyi) with huge images of Ganesha sewn onto each pocket. This girl quite clearly had no clue who Ganesha is, what he stands for, or how sacred he is. Either that, or she thought that by wearing it, it made her ~edgy. IT DOESN'T. It makes you ignorant and disrespectful.

#2 The whole, "I'm not racist but.." or "I'm not racist, my cousins girlfriend is black". Honestly, save yourself the embarrassment. Anyone who follows up "I'm not a racist" with the word 'but' is more than likely, a huge racist. To add, I find the word 'paki' to be the most offensive/vile word in the world.
#3 Bad driving. In particular; tailgaters and people who don't indicate to come off a roundabout. I purposely slow down if someone is tailgating me. How pointless is it to ram your cars bonnet into my tailgate? Completely. Chances are, I'm going as fast as I'm going because of the speed of the car in front of me, calm down. I'm not claiming to be a first class driver but DAMN at least I use my indicators.
#4 People who breath really loudly through their mouth whilst they're eating, as though consuming food is the most strenuous and exhausting task on the planet. It makes me feel slightly nauseous but I'm not sure why
#5 When people are walking their dogs, and they're not on a leash or whatever and just come running/jumping up to you and the owner does NOTHING about it. I was once sat on a train, and a woman with a hideously ~designer dog was sat opposite me. The dog was by her feet and at one point was literally jumping up onto me and she was just laughing and 'aww'ing at it! I dislike dogs more than I can put into words, most of the time they terrify me. Granted, this one didn't scare me as it was about the size of my fist.. but really. Not everyone loves your over priced dog as much as you do. Please tell it to get the hell off me.
So, what are your pet peeves? I could have honestly put down about another 1,000. I am just far too easy to piss off!
