We all have pet peeves, of course: the little things that bug us.

One of mine — and I bet I’m not alone with this — is the sound of somebody reaching into a crinkly bag of chips and crunching on them at their desk while I am trying to concentrate on my work at my desk.

In short, I can’t focus on editing news articles when somebody is munching on chips a few feet away from me. I have to stop reading and wait for that person to finish the chips before I can refocus on the job at hand.

How about you? What are some of your pet peeves?
