The Pet Peeve Police

By Colleen Messina
1     Watch out, everyone, the Pet Peeve Police are rounding up exasperating habits or events, locking them away into crates, and tossing them into the deep blue ocean. Pet peeves can cause heavy-duty irritation, so they will sink to the bottom of the sea. Pet peeves can be caused by other people or inanimate objects.
 
2     What types of things might cause an arrest? Here are some pet peeves that may be lurking in the shadows (or even in broad daylight) and causing considerable consternation for millions.
 
3     1. People who talk during movies with obvious observations can be annoying. For example, they point out that a comedy is funny or that a drama is sad.
 
4     2. People who attempt to change lanes, talk on a cell phone, put on makeup, and eat a submarine sandwich all at the same time can be exasperating.
 
5     3. It is challenging when oblivious baggers at the grocery store put a gallon of ice cream next to hot BBQ chicken wings. The end result might be weird creamed chicken and a spicy, vanilla milkshake in a bag.
