    For example people would say ruff when there are trying to say roof or cafee when trying to say coffee.

    One that annoys me - when people say "un-thaw" when they mean thaw - like "un-thaw the chicken for dinner....."

    Things that are meant to be straight and/or symmetrical that are not straight and/or symmetrical. Especially in relation to things hanging on walls. I am perfectly happy with wonky and asymmetrical if it is purposeful. But not if it is accidental.

    My mom does this clicking thing with her nails...I can't describe it...but I guess that's one sound I find really annoying. I get annoyed by things more easily than I should, so I'm sure I could always come up with things to list here. :p

    my sister. for example, she's been heard to say such things as: "I can always find England on the map, but I can never find Great Britain."

    People who end sentences with "You know what I mean" and "Like" and "Right"

    So for example:

    "I saw this movie last night right and it was really good like so I reckon you should go and see it, you know what I mean(?)"

    the list of things that qualify for this question for me are long as I am high functioning autistic person and sensory sensitivity is a particular area of problems for me. I'll just do one:

    It drives me crazy when some bit of the dashboard paneling in my car is vibrating differently than usual as I drive. It's just slightly loose or the motor is vibrating at just the right wavelength make that that extra sound. So i spend a lot of time pushing on various parts of the dashboard to see if I can make it stop. :chargrined:

    LOL!! I have a car like that, and use popsicle sticks to stop the vibrations - the fact that these sticks are visibly sticking out of the dashboard doesn't worry me in the slightest, it's the vibrations that drove me nuts!

    I had never thought about wedging something in the dashboard. I will try that I think. Thank you for mentioning your solution. :)

    I just encountered another thing that annoys me more than it should. The fuckin pigeons on my balcony constant hooting and shitty everywhere, I just really want to do they harm.

    when people and specially politicians seem unable to tell when "something's wrong with this picture." for example, like when the U.S. state of WI decided to lift the ban on hunting/shooting morning doves. even tho the morning dove is the state's offical "bird of peace." is like, here sweet, gentle birdie. then: kaboom!

    I am not sure that is something that annoys you more than it should - That is just plain annoying and rude in my opinion.

    (I guess maybe this should have been on my list too perhaps lol )

    I always mutter under my breath, "Oh, my...Thank you for sharing your taste in music!" Ugh! :D

    rude or clueless. Its when I wish there was police around. But then I quickly think that what I wish for others may well also come back on to me. So I cancel that wish posthaste. :D

    That is SO much more polite than what I would like to mutter under my breath when it happens.
