    The only "pet" peeve that I have with the teacher who has a guinea pig down the hall is when they don't clean the cage and you can smell it all the way to the other hallway :rofl:

    I have a poster in my room:
    "Don't Peck Me" . with a woodpecker on it.
    I cannot stand being poked or tapped with a finger to get my attention because I am ignoring the rude student's constant verbal interruption to start with. It usually occurs when I'm busy with a student. These students will get out of their chair, stalk me, and once they tap me I whip around and say, "Do not touch me like that."
    I continue to tell them why that behavior is wrong.

    My biggest pet peeve is when children who are extremely sick come to school. They tell me that they want perfect attendance. I have more respect for the kid who stays home and doesn't get the rest of us sick, than the one with perfect attendance.
    Another pet peeve of mine is eating in the classroom. Especially when they have just come from lunch.

    On subs not following directions, a sub and I were literally just talking about this yesterday. How hard is it to just follow the teacher directions?!
    My biggest pet peeve is not being able to keep them completely quiet during a test. The ones who are done always try to start whispering.
    Another is kids who never fail to ask me, "Can I listen to music during the test?" even though I've explained, like, 150 times that this is not allowed in any universe! (I teach high school.)
