People who say "at least I admit I'm racist" as if it's something to be proud of. It's pretty much having pride in admiting your a dumbass.
This ( in a very round about way) brings me to one of my biggest pet peeves; dishonesty. I don't mean lying I mean..uh..I require an example to truly describe it.
When I'm told " I'm SOOO sorry. We're really trying our best to change things, and I wish there were another way but their just isn't!"
I lose all lrespect for that person.
The fact is, they don't care. They care about getting paid and this 'only way' is merely the way that gets them the most money..
I was not born yesterday. I know that it is human nature to want what is best for me, myself, and I.
For soemone to stand there and tell me " Oh were TRYING we really DO care"
Is not only insulting my intelligence, it is degrading to themselves.
I don't care what kind of degree they have, or how much money they make. If a person cannot be honest with those they claim to help, or even themselves, then they have no worth as human beings.
If they would flat-out tell me "actually we have other options, but we are greedy bastards' then I would have SOME respect for them.
Well, while it is irritating when people are blatantly dishonest in what they say, it's part of their job to uphold a positive reputation of whatever they're representing. They cannot and should not actually say to your face that "they're greedy bastards". You may gain respect for them saying that, but the majority would be completely turned-off and take their business elsewhere. If they're actually willing to help you if you have other options, it'd be great if they shared them with you, but if not, there may be reason, e.g. it being too troublesome, time-consuming, too much effort that'd intervene with the rest of their duties, etc. Sure, it may not be of the most selfless form of integrity, but this is business. Chances are, the more you b*tch and gripe about it, they're capable of making it worse for you. When it's something that's blatantly wrong and something the employee would get in trouble for, take it up with someone of higher power if you're able to do anything about it.

I agree with the spoiler nazi crap... people who b*tch at you for minor
spoilers like... being introduced to the main cast and what their names are before they've played the game/watched the movie/show, etc when it had already been announced or commonly known. It's even more ridiculous when the same info is exposed on trailers and IMDB.
People who discredit compliments you give them by denying what you say, beyond just being modest. Like when you tell someone that they're pretty... It's modest to reply with, "Thank you! My hair is messy today, though." rather than "No I'm not. I'm ugly." and even worse, "No, please don't lie to me to make me feel better." And the very same people getting offended when they're told the truth, e.g. "You're very pretty today! Just, your hair is a bit messy." replied with, "See! I knew you thought I'm ugly!"
People who start pity fights and try to discredit any depression or stress that you may feel by comparing it with their own. "Well, my life was a lot harder than yours!" and feeling that you're spoiled with happiness because you have the integrity not to tactlessly share your hardships for pity. These same sort of people who try to throw around "You don't understand!" when people don't agree with what they're doing.
People who lack a sense of humor, and get offended easily over stupid things. This is very subjective, though.
People who fish for thank yous and compliments, sometimes even guilty, after they do a nice thing for someone with, "You know, I did this for you." and "Oh yeah! I spent a lot of time on this by the way."
Tactless and socially inept people who won't accept that whatever they're doing may actually be wrong, thus never making the effort to improve not making atmospheres awkward.
People who try to equate "maturity" with age, and responsibilities like "doing chores, having a job, doing homework".
Religious people who look down upon you for not having/share the same religious beliefs.
People who replace typing the letter "g" with "q".
