This one will be fun. Everyone loves to complain and really, what are pet peeves if not complaints!
11. Describe 10 pet peeves you have.
1. People who talk on their cell phones during breakfast/lunch/dinner/drinks with friends.
This also includes texting, browsing the internet and all other electronic methods of ignoring the people who are right in front of you.
Besides the fact that it's horribly rude to talk on the phone in a restaurant imagine how the people who are sitting with you feel. You're in essence saying "I'm happy to spend time with you but if a phone call or an interesting text message comes in you're on your own. And if you're truly boring, I'll check my facebook and twitter while we chat."
Here's the thing. Unless you are on call for work or it's your babysitter calling to tell you that your house is on fire and Junior is bungee jumping from the roof, chances are it's nothing that can't wait an hour.
I'm clearly not the only person who feels this way. There is a 'game' that people are playing while out at restaurants now in which everyone stacks their phones on the table. The first person to take their phone off the stack to answer a call, text or browse the internet is responsible for the restaurant bill for the group.
