When I'm at work and people come out of a meeting and stand RIGHT BY MY DESK to have a loud conversation on their cell phone. Bonus douche points if you actually come into my cubicle area to have the conversation because you think that's more courteous to those walking by.
One of these days I am going to punch you right in the kidney.

Asian women on the subway are the worst.
Yes, I'm stereotyping.
But in my time riding the subway, asian women are the worst people on the subway. They won't care if you're ass is coming down, they will shove you out of the way to sit in a chair. They'll run you over if you're pregnant or on crutches. They give 0 shits about anyone else.
Its not just them though that are assholes on the subway. People who don't pay attention because they have headphones on are the worst. Just because you can't hear everything perfectly doesn't mean that you can't see what's going on around you. I've watched people stand in the doorways as others are trying to enter/exit. Their lack of awareness is frustrating to the point where I have pushed them aside.
Speaking of pushing people aside, fucking backpacks man. People with backpacks that hang out 3 feet behind them are the worst. Out of all my subway gripes, these people are the worst. It ranges from students to adults. They're the fucking worst people ever. These people don't understand that a backpack hanging off them is a huge inconvenience to everyone else. Blocking aisles, taking up space others could be standing in. Its awful. Take your fucking backpack off and put it between your feet, you stupid shits.
The entire scientific, industrial and non-consumer equipment and materials business:
"if you have to ask you can't afford it" is not a justification for not putting prices on your website and sales material. There are many many different levels of "can't afford it". For example we can probably pay $20,000 for something, but definitely not $200,000.

gotta update that stuff man
A few work ones (call center, tech support):
* Not identifying who you are and what company you are with at the start of a call. You are a business calling another business, let me know who the fuck I am talking to. I already did when I answered.
* "I'm having a problem with my internet." Well, no shit. You wouldn't be calling me otherwise. This forces me to guess what your problem is. "Um... so you can't get online at all, or... ?". Just tell me straight out. "We can't get online," or "The Internet is really slow." This is probably half my calls...
Other work peeves that I at least understand:
* When they describe their problem, sigh and then say "AGAIN". There are better ways to convey that this is a repeat issue... if it really is, I'll see it when I pull up the account. But the customer is frustrated so I can forgive it.
* Residential calls. The very first thing our phone tree does is check if you are a home or a business. Is it that hard to press the right button? - This one doesn't bother me all that much since I'm not convinced our call routing software doesn't screw up sometimes...
* Not being ready to talk to me when I answer. Most of the time there is no wait to talk to someone (when there is, this doesn't bother me). Hit a couple of buttons on the phone tree and I answer. Why are you talking to someone else for 30 seconds after I answer, or why am I ON HOLD when I answer?

aww that makes me feel bad because I hate it when people hate on me for being drunk
I mean sure if I get so drunk I'm feeling everyone up and puking in the corner but that doesn't happen too often. One time on a study abroad trip I went out to a concert and had 4-5 drinks so that it was clear that I had some drinks, but I was coherent and not too shitty. I got back to our hotel and talked with some of the people, who were apparently that I had went and drank some beers
they acted like I pulled my dick out and slapped each one of their puritan faces with my schlong they were so offended
I just like drinking! I don't hate on people for not drinking if they don't act like they're a better person than me about it
People who don't monitor their language around others. I know that I'll probably get jabbed for this, but I absolutely violently cringe inside when I am in a public area around children and elderly people and I hear somebody throwing curse words around like they're on a sailing ship or they're 15 years old and just figured out that they could curse in public. It is rude, disrespectful, and just, well rude. It's not even so much of a 'protect the children!' feeling it's more, of a 'those kids don't need to hear that language, and i'm sure those elderly people also don't want to hear about you fucking fuck shit ass night of being pissed right the fuck to neverland'.

People who flaunt their sexuality as though it's their only personality trait.
I knew this girl, massive nerd, I sorta loved her. She was into every thing I was, and was the only buddy I could talk to about Firefly, Doctor Who, Pokemon, all of that stuff. Yeah, I get those conversations between my circle of friends, but she was the only one who covered ALL the conversation bases.
Then she came out as asexual.
No more cool conversations about lasers and their applications! Now every time I talk to her, we go maybe 5 lines before a sarcastic remark about everyone elses sexuality.
I cut her off, not friends anymore. Everyone assumes it's cause I wanted to hit that and she's no longer a candidate.
Naw. It's the smug superiority some people find when they define as anything other than straight. That need to make sure everyone in the room needs to know your alignment.Great.

straight people talk about their sexuality literally all of the time
i want to talk about sexuality all the time. all sexuality.
dicks in butts. dicks in cooters. cooters rubbing against cooters. male frogs tonguing male horses. i want it all.
I don't need to hear in every conversation that you're not straight anymore than you need to hear that I am. Or that every conversation has to come back to being christian/jewish/muslim/atheist/agnostic/insert your identifier here.
establish the identifier once, if necessary, and then move on. I think is what Dark Raven is saying.

but I think you're missing the point here
my boss, for instance, is a guy that talks about his family pretty much every day. like he doesn't drone on about them, but usually he'll mention his wife or will come up or his kids maybe once or twice a day maybe more than that
which is talking about his sexuality. most straight people talk about their sexuality without even realizing it. 'my girlfriend said this the other day...'
it was also probably a pretty big deal to her and so that's why she talks about it a lot. because sexuality is a pretty big deal to just about everyone and most people talk about it a lot even when they're not talking about putting their penis in someone.
Also, people who get annoyed at small, common sounds, like clicking or chewing. It's like "Oh, I'm sorry, I guess I should refrain from eating or clicking my pen whithin your delicate aural presence." Without fail, everyone I have met who is like that is also self centered, controlling, and socially oblivious.
What I will refer to as "Secondary Sexual Conversations", about your relationships and products are different. I certainly wouldn't be more or less annoyed hearing how your husband is doing Eddy as opposed to how someones hetreo- partner is doing.
