  • Hahaha, no idea why it's called a 'pet peeve', that's something worth googling to find out. I do have a pet peeve with crappy drivers. Road rage!

  • Pet peeve-- first used in 1919,,, term is a back-formation from the 14th century word for Peevish, meaning ornery or ill tempered. My pet peeve is people chewing with their mouth open, or smacking their lips while eating.
