Everyone has pet peeves, they may be extreme or subtle. But we can all agree on one thing, whatever the pet peeve(s) may be, it'll drive us f*cking insane. In college, we deal with enough stress concerning, you know, what we're going to do with the rest of our lives, so it'd be great if we didn't have to deal with these pet peeves. But if college has taught me anything, it's that we certainly can't win them all, so pet peeves you win this one.
