A pet peeve is defined as a minor annoyance that can instill extreme frustration in an individual. An average person has several pet peeves that can aggravate him or her more than others. I would classify myself as above average when it comes to pet peeves. When asked what bothers me, I just shrug and say it's better to ask what doesn't bother me. Hence, I am a very difficult person to live with. :-)
Your assignment is to pick one of your biggest pet peeves and write about it. Fictionalize it, if you must. Give your pet peeve to your character and show us how he would handle it.
