My Pet Peeves

Pet peeves can range from immaturity to major character flaws. I seem to have more pet peeves than others. My main three are when my best friend lies to me, when people don't act like themselves, and when people hold back their emotions.

Which is why were not together today.

I have my three main pet peeves listed from minor to major. All of them are major character flaws except my final pet peeve. When you hold back emotions from someone that's simple immaturity. That's my major peeve, because I have found myself in that situation more than...
