by Mark Lichtenstein

"Grrr" may be a sound you are well aware of whether you're in traffic or trying to catch a quick lunch. Pet peeves are everywhere! Does your office-mate trim their toe-nails at work? Does your pizza place have a problem layering the pepperoni equally across the pizza? Or are you just sick and tired at the money pit you call a house?

Sure, we'd love for life to be a sunny day every day, but the fact is, even that overly happy neighbor has their personal pet peeves - incidentally, the lawn you haven't cut in over a week might be driving that neighbor crazy.
