That’s about it really. It’s always annoying when someone doesn’t agree with you (well, I think it is when they don’t agree with me!) but I have a certain level of respect for someone who is true to their convictions no matter how off-kilter I find them to be. The thing that I can’t stand is when a person says one thing then does another. That totally pushes my buttons. As a result I try always to be true to my word. This sometimes means confessing that I’ve done the wrong thing, have forgotten to do something or have made a mistake but I’d rather be honest about it than be the person who says one thing and then does something else.
There is one notable exception. I have, in the past, found myself in what I felt was an unwinnable work situation where unrealistic expectations were foisted upon us. In this scenario I found myself nodding and smiling then going off to do my job the way I knew to be best. I chose to see this as a kind of passive-aggressive dissident approach rather than truly hypocritical…
On a related but not exactly the same tangent, I'm fairly easily riled by anyone who says, "I'm not a [insert abhorrent outlook here] but..." e.g. "I'm not a racist but..." or "I'm not a misogynist but..."
I do try really hard not to keep peeves as pets; they're destructive little critters and generally difficult to house-train.
So, what’s your pet peeve?
