I do it when I'm being tailgated. Don't want the person behind me to be able to pass me while I'm turning. And I take my sweet time.

Fortune cookies that don't contain fortunes. Every one I've opened for the last several years has contained a message that reads like a random quote from a crappy self-help book. That's not a fortune!

Those combination bath tub / showers.

Not the tub/shower itself, but people who use them and leave the "diverter" on the shower portion, so that when you step into the shower and turn on the water you get blasted with cold water.

That moment when you turn the water on full blast and nothing happens with your vulnerable back exposed is too life or death that early in the morning. The adrenaline produced in jumping to the back of the shower is almost as waking as being hit by the cold water

We finally agree on something. How exciting!

commercials that feel the need to be run back-to-back, or in some cases back-to-back-to-back.

This one has been a big offender lately on Fios.

Someone has to have already mentioned this, but if there was a 64 team bracket of pet peeves, this would definitely be a #1 seed:

When the corner of your fitted sheet comes undone in the middle of the night, and there's no way to fix it without getting yourself and your significant other out of bed. Good god that sucks.

When I hit the "guide" button on my fios remote, and some ad pops up, which then causes me to exit the ad and hit the guide button again.

I had those and the sheets would still come undone. They are usually cheaply made.

Read them like Bazooka bubble gum comics and add "...in bed" to the end of every fortune. That helps.

People who use the term "we" at work.
Also, the use of the word "team" in the workplace.
