Pet peeves are those seemingly-minor things people do or say that really annoy you. What tops your list of pet peeves?

I have so many, where do I begin?!
Driving: failing to maintain lane integrity while turning through an intersection. OMG. There's an intersection I take every day on the way to work that has two 4-lane roads cross. Where the Parkway meets the main drag there are two right-hand turn lanes. Both lanes MUST turn right, as the road on the other side of the intersection is a regular 2-lane highway. Lane closest to the curb is A, while outer lane is B. Since I have to make a left-hand turn shortly after turning right through the intersection, I stay in lane B and make the wide turn right. It seems like EVERYONE ELSE uses lane A and slides into lane B in the middle of the intersection without checking to see if anyone is already occupying that space. I can't begin to count the amount of times I've almost been smashed into because no one bothers to stay in their lane. I had a guy flip me off because he over-corrected to avoid me and bumped the curb. *sigh* I've learned to turn verrrrrry slowly just to avoid being sideswiped.

Most of the rest of my peeves have to do with retail. "Do you work here?" "Do you have this in the back? Can you look?" "It won't scan; it must be free!" "It's on sale? but I want to use my coupon! Just take it to regular price and use my coupon!" GAAAH.
