I really REALLY despise being bothered while on the phone. Co-workers have the tendency to do that. There's also one that keeps asking me to put the person on the other end on hold. 9___9
I just ... hate talking to someone and then need to cover the mouthpiece of the receiver and speak to the person that's standing beside me and asking me a million questions. Seems like I'm disrespecting the person I'm talking to on the line since it seems kind of weird to suddenly ask them to hold. :\
Maybe I just can't multi-task with people while on the phone or something. :/
I was in Salt Lake City a few years back and visited the LDS temple (and wow, is it ever a gorgeous piece of architecture!! Wish I could have gone in but it's prohibited. :\). Ran into some Sisters there who tried to offer me The Book of Mormon but my Mormon friend, who was giving me the tour of the grounds, managed to get me out of it. ^^
(They weren't forcing it on me or anything but I was all duuuuuuurr and just sort of didn't know how to reply. ^^;;;;;)
Other than this, YES, people that don't say "thank you" when I hold the door for them should go and get hit by a car or something.
ABOUT THOSE PARKING VULTURES~
It's usually parking spots that are close to the entrance of a store or whatnot that they do this, yeah? It's like gee, whatever happened to parking farther and walking a few extra steps? >_>
And yeah, like Sgt Phantomizer said, the ones that just plop themselves on the side to wait for someone is just plain rude. What's worse is when you're FOLLOWING these types of drivers and they suddenly stop. Of course, they don't signal so you don't know if it's a temporary pause or if they're just going to be parking their BACON right then and there. BACONers! >:(

fresh hosting is your pet peeve? Interesting choice.
Unsurprisingly, I wholly disagree with this. People put so much of their heart and soul into Miku songs... That's actually the reason WHY Miku songs tend to have such good lyrics, IMHO: because they're all fan-made. Basically, they're made by people who can't sing, but CAN compose, and want to share their songs with the world... and Miku gives them the ability to do exactly that.Nah. It's really just that Hatsune Miku (and Vocaloid in general) epitomizes everything I hate about j-pop. Not its subject matter, but the simple, robotic nature of the singing. One syllable per note, with almost no deviation from the formula. No heart or soul put into it. Just plug a voice into it and you've got yourself a song.
And when you have a well-composed vocaloid song, you CAN hear the emotion in it (largely because there IS an actual person behind each of the vocaloids -- although the order in which the syllables are sung is computer-generated, the syllables themselves were actually sung and recorded by human beings).
I would even go so far as to say that many vocaloid songs have MORE heart and soul than typical pop hits, since a lot of pop hits are basically written by numbers in a board room somewhere, and sung by the "idol du jour" who's really only going through the motions in order to get a paycheck... whereas vocaloid compositions are written by people with songs in their hearts, who desperately want to share them with the world.
...But, it's not in my place (nor is it on-topic) to condemn anyone for his/her pet peeves. I think we should both just keep PurpleDoom's quote in mind:
Truer words have never been spoken!One man's trash is another man's treasure, you know?
My favorite vocaloid cover was removed from YouTube, sadly, but I'll see if I can dig up a few over the next few days, and post them in the music thread.Even if he doesn't end up liking them, I totally wouldn't mind hearing these myself.

Wow! You don't say! Amazing!
...In compliance with Nunuu's request (which was written LATER IN TIME -- amazing, I can time travel!), I am making Deftuseld look like quite the fool! Take THAT, non-person!

Miku voice ...
*adds to pet peeve*
Seriously, I only like Vocaloid for their designs, Nendoroids, and the Chibi Miku Web comic. :P
But yeah, if you got covers of real people singing Vocaloid songs, I wouldn't mind hearing those either~!
On an unrelated note, I think it'd be fun if mods went around and edited those spam messages the way wyrd did! :D
I hate having to wait. Not like in a line, or at a store or anything, just timed things. Say a place is supposed to be open at 10 and I'm standing there at 10:15 waiting, then I get kinda annoyed. Kinda like when I have to wait 15 minutes at work for someone to unlock the door to let me in/out.
Other than that, nothing really annoyes me.
