Every one has one pet peeve (or more, lol) that really gets under their skin.
For some people, it's not setting correctly the chalk "up" on the table. Others it might be someone simply practicing on the table next to their match that really gets them upset. There are a TON of things I could mention that gets under player's skin, but other people don't even notice or care or even give two thoughts to it.
Mine is simple and easy: If you hook me, whether intentional or not, when you check out to see if I'm hooked, instead of just walking to your chair, THAT is my pet peeve.
Why not just go sit your ass down? Do you think it's really cool to get in my way so you can go see if I am hooked or not? Do you think it shows professionalism and etiquette to check if you just shit-hooked me?
You will know soon enough if I am hooked or not by how I shoot at the ball. But my question is this: DOES IT REALLY MATTER?
If you hook me, what does that mean to yourself as you finally walk to your chair?
Seriously asking that question, lol.
To me it doesn't mean much because I can still hit the ball either on the edge or with a kick.
It's even funnier to me (i.e. more annoying) when people walk around the table to check out the shot they left me when they ACCIDENTALLY might have hooked me. Listen, we have all played pool enough to know when a safe is intentional or we got lucky and hooked our opponents. No reason to be mean and see if I'm hooked "good" or not by pure luck, lol.
You will never, ever see me "check" to see if I hooked you (intentional safe or not). It's not even in my being to be that rude to you. I would prefer to get out of your way and sit down in my assigned seat. My shot is over; it's your turn. I go away, you come to the table. I will know soon enough if you are hooked or not.
What is your pet peeve?
