Default Things that really bug you...

As it says, for me the one thing I can't abide is people not saying please or thank you.

Oh and then there's the people who wait for the checkout woman to put their bag of onions in a carrier. Why? (Scream)

Totally annoys me...

What's your pet hate?

People who try to justify their behaviour and actions even though they know what they did is so wrong. But they somehow try and find an excuse for it only to satisfy their guilty conscience!
Oh and also, people in Dubai don't really smile that much. You smile at a person at the mall or a convenience store and they just ignore you. It's just a general rude attitude that people have adopted here in Dubai!

People who dont work. Can not decide if a lazy man or a bump on a log woman is worse. They both are pretty high up there in my book of pet peeves. (Sure cant pick family can we?)

The lieing type. I dont even care for the white lies.

Someone without any passion in life.

People who do not actively participate in their children life in a daily manner and make excuses as to why they can not. The number of people who I have met that left their children some place else and see them once a year is atrocious here.

Someone who speaks 'ghetto'. Those from a proper middle class place where no one speaks ghetto but they pretend like they do are bad. What is worse, is those that are from the ghetto, got out the ghetto and made something of themselves, who will fall back into ghetto talk and then say its blending in with their environment. There is no reason to ever lower ones self to fit in. Goes back to telling a lie.

Posters who dig up really old threads from some two years ago and answer the intial question even though the original poster is long gone and the questions are no longer relevant.
