Writer's Block: Just stop, already!  
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
I have so many, they're categorized. Like, at work my biggest it when people don't keep control of their kids/let them have tantrums/run around and place. It's a restaurant, and ain't talking McDonald's, here.

And then my writing ones, where people use certain descriptions that just bug me. The two that have been really bugging me are actually pr0ny ones: when someone kisses the protagonist with their "velvety tongue"....all I can think about is licking velvet, and it makes me want to gag, then force the writer to find out what it's like to lick something that's really velvet. The other one is when someone says that the protagonist's cock is "impossibly hard." If it were impossible, it wouldn't have happened, would it?

Of course, there are others, like people driving in the bike lane, or when like...half of our class doesn't do the reading, so there's only five people who take part in the discussion. And yesterday, I was the only one who knew answers to half the questions our mythology professor asked, and he eventually said, "Someone besides Margaret...bless you, I know you know the answers." I spent the rest of the class restraining myself, while everyone else struggled to find the answers in the book (The Odyssey, btw), or perhaps the courage to guess what they were.

Honestly, though, my biggest is usually whatever comes up at the moment that I get annoyed by it.
