    If you have a pet peeve, it's the one thing that really gets you annoyed.

    "My pet peeve is people using their mobile phones on the train. It drives me mad."

    "I hate automated phone systems. They're my pet peeve."

    The word "peeve" can also be used as a verb:

    "It really peeved me when she hung up the phone on me while I was till talking to her."

    "What's peeving you today? You look upset."

    The good thing about having a pet peeve is that they tend to feed themselves.
