I’m sure everyone has their own set of pet peeves … here are some of mine, rearing their ugly little heads today:

  • People who ask for my help, but then tell me I’m wrong. If you know the answer, don’t ask me!
  • People who don’t listen.
  • People who drive 10 mph slower than the speed limit in the fast lane.
  • People who don’t turn off their cell phones in a restaurant. Unless you’re a doctor on-call who may need to leave at a minute’s notice, the person you’re with should be your primary focus.
  • People who print novels on the department printer, but never pick-up the print-out wasting time and paper.
  • People who get hired into management roles, without understanding the jobs or responsibilities of the staff they are supposed to be managing.

I’m sure I’ll come up with more later …
