Assunto:  To natives: Pet Peeve
 
Mensagem: 

"Pet peeve" is an often used expression. 

 

Alternatives include:

"Something that pisses me off is...."

"Something that gets my bowels in an uproar is..."

"Something that gets my dandruff up is..."

"Something that tees me off is..."

"Something that gets me hot under the collar is..."

"Something that rattles my cage is..."

 

To add emphasis, put "really" just before the verb.  "Something that really pisses me off is...."
