So I realized today that I have a pet peeve that I hadn't realized before this. This was rather odd, becuase I while I am urked by many things, I had never really realized this one. This one being a general loathing for people who are native to a region to not know that places idioms.
Now, I understand when they are new to an area, or to a person, to not know the idioms that they/the area use. However, when one of my best friends, who I have known since middleschool, didn't understand what I meant by 'bun in the oven' (we were making fun of her for having a food baby. I thought it was a good pun) I found myself really erked, and so I set out to use more idioms, and, low and behold, a bunch of people who I have known and who have lived in the same area as I have since childhood had no clue what I was saying. Needless to say, they made me very unhappy.
So I now feel like some kind of english snob (which, I admit, I kind of am, though I have no abilities in the spelling department). I also now feel like a total petty jerk, for feeling so erked becuase someone didn't understand what local idioms and phrases meant.
And now my question: Any random pet peeves? If anyone here is anything like me, there will be plenty of them (*b/dl related or not).
