    I feel most petty when I am driving. If you can't figure out how to plan your trip efficiently enough to know when to merge lanes so you are in the proper lane in order to exit... don't expect me to let you cut in front of me, causing me to slam on my brakes whilst driving at 70 in a 55 zone.... especially when there is a giant mile behind me of open, carless road.

    in more real day to day things... If I am in a healthy frame of reference, ie no undue extra stress, I tend to not be particularly petty. If I do have a petty moment, I usually berate myself internally for quite a while... even if I don't act on that inclination.... I still mentally view it the idea as the same as the action.

    I try to avoid my mental punishments if I can help it.

    I get petty with crap like this.....

    Co-Workers: What are you bringing to the company pot luck?

    TG: There is a company pot luck? I didn't even know about it, I am not bringing anything.

    Co-Workers: Well then you can't eat....if you don't bring anything.

    TG: Okay....I never eat at work, you guys always make fun of me for that.

    Co-Workers: If you don't bring something you can't eat.

    TG: I wasn't planning on it.

    Co-workers: It is only fair.

    TG: I wasn't planing to eat.

    Co-Workers: So, you wont be eating then?

    TG: No....I am sure your cooking tastes like shit anyway.

    People with self-awareness I guess.

    Yeah, I'm capable of it. Who isn't? No, it's not something I struggle with. I guess it's something that might emerge in epic proportions when I'm extremely stressed. Under normal circumstances I try to be aware of it and nip it in the bud.

    Me? I can be so single minded and stubborn sometimes. It becomes petty.

    Everyone gets petty. Is this a joke thread, or a test to see how many self-righteous deluded members we have on the forum?

    I can be petty, for sure. Sometimes it's about food, like: "I don't want that broken piece; I want the good one!". My worst pettiness, though, is when I get hung up on semantics or become sensitive over a perceived slight. I wouldn't call pettiness a defining trait of mine though. I think that one you'll find harder to get confessions for.
