Mensagem: 

I learned this word from an american. He sad that Pet Peeves are things that annoys somebody. Annoying Things People Do & Say.For instance:

 

Changing the TV channel without asking when anyone is clearly watching.

Standing in the way of folks wishing to use an escalator, moving sidewalk or doorway

Installing a toilet paper roll so that the tissue unwaps from the under side of the roll

Anybody showing up more than an hour late when I've cooked a very fancy meal
 

and so on...

 

Deivis. (I googled it)
