One of my pet peeves is people playing games with not responding to e-mails or communications. Sort of REALLY irritates me. There are two categories here. The one category belongs to procrastinators and lazy people who usually want one to remind them of things, and only really respond when they feel it is urgent enough. I'm more or less OK with those, although it does give my irritation levels a work out now and then. But the ones I have a very low tolerance for are the ones who play calculated games. For example, they may want to cut you down in size, so want you to write to them again, just to keep you in your place. Or try and show you up by slowing you down. I wish I could be better in dealing with those people. And am not quite sure how. As I'm a very action oriented person. On the other hand, one doesn't want to rub this category of people up the wrong way, yet, want to keep them in their place too. So maybe the logical course of action would be to ignore them completely, and pretend it's not important? Or find a work around, a Plan B or Plan C? Wish I could get to the point where I don't get impatient. Darn difficult to do, which of course makes me dislike this kind of behaviour even more.

That can be very annoying. I find it very annoying at times, especially the pointless ones.

Just keep sending them reminder emails,annoy them into replying,do it each and every time,eventually you will train them to reply first time.

my biggest pet peeve is really chewing gum especially at church. I mean who does that. you are at church and everything and the next person next to you is blasting with no manners whatsoever as if they are at a carnival and such. I feel like loosing my insanity at time.

Well chewing gum any where particularly with chewing and blowing noises is the pits, however must say I haven't seen people doing that in a while.
