Things which annoy me for no solid reason: animals in clothing, babies allowed to run around in just a diaper, people wearing sweats/pajama-like clothes in public, tomboys, mispronunciations like "pitcher" for picture, "ax" for ask, and dropping Ts (inTeresting, not inNeresting), and people who stand too close to you in line.

Yeah, I'm thinking 'give me some damn space'. Then I purposely look in the person's direction (not at his face) and if someone I know is behind them, I call out to that someone loudly just in order to annoy the person standing behind me.
People who use adjectives in place of adverbs. OOooohh... That really is a good way to get me steamed.
Worse: people who abuse the -ly suffix. Movie reviewers, I'm looking right at you. No, "hilariously," "enchantingly," and "pulse-poundingly" are NOT words. Don't you people have a thesaurus somewhere around your writing desk?
name something you don't like, not for any rational or consciously idealistic reason but simply because it gives you the heebies.
I haven't been paying attention to my intense dislikes for so long I've forgotten what many of them were. I don't dwell on hatred, I would much rather do something about it.
Re-jogging my memory...
The Hit List
1. David Deangelo. (I would personally I enjoy snuffing him out.)
2. More male dating-gurus focused on getting women.
3. Anyone trying to sell a broken refrigerator (figuratively) with emotional terminology. (Your persuasive tactics are futile.)
4. Or simply anyone trying to use a pathos appeal where it doesn't belong. (Give me the facts and the logic. I will decide the personal value on my own, thanks. There's no need to sell when I believe it's already good.)
5. Mothers against [insert a movement].
6. Movie Mom Reviews.
7. Over-protective Feminist-Extremist Moms. (This gives the feminist group a negative name.)
8. Having to say that every MBTI type is capable of doing X when it's unnecessary -- i.e, everyone in the room already understands. (Thank-you, Captain Obvious, for this brilliant observation.)
9. The Damsels in Distress passively waiting for their Knight In Shinning Armor.
10. Anti-Barack-Obama-ists, solely b/c they believe he's not an American citizen and a terrorist in disguise. Their sole purpose revolves around debunking this 'myth'. (Who cares where he came from. What happened to critiquing his decisions?)
11. Nagging. (Because repetition will definitively make me move faster than I already am.)
12. An infant's cries.
13. Answering questions by answering an irrelevant/off-topic question (in arguments).
14. Forced compliments. (When you're not complimenting, you're now regarded as an arse.)

15. Forced interest or friendliness. (When you're not showing interest or friendliness, you're now regarded as a major arse.)
16. Forced apologies. (When you're not apologizing, you're now regarded as a despicable human being.)
17. Forced (value) agreements - example: my friends are your friends; my enemies are your enemies. (When you're not agreeing, RUN!)
18. Having to always say "no offense" when speaking in a typical all-female congregation. (Shouldn't it be obvious?)
19. Keeping a 'nice' image when you have cutthroat intentions. (Again, prevalent amongst female groups.)
20. Booby-trap topics in female-female discussions. (Re: weight, beauty, age, relationship status, etc.)
21. Pity votes.
