    ROOM 101
    The Pet Peeves of The Student Room


    I've come up with an idea for a 'series', if you like, of debates on things that you may like or despise. I recently read 1984 by George Orwell (cue the plug: you can read my thoughts on it in my Grow Your Grades blog here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...rimary_content), and in the book, Winston goes to Room 101, where he faces his greatest fear. From this, a TV show called Room 101 appeared, where celebrities talked about the pet peeves and they were discussed before putting them into Room 101.

    In this thread, you can suggest your pet peeves and give a few sentences to explain why (for example, you may say that you hate passion fruit with a passion (see what I did there ) because it makes you feel sick, and it is disgusting). I will, each week, pick one of these pet peeves and create a new thread (which I will link here), where you can discuss the pet peeves. I will create a poll in the thread for everyone to vote on, and if the majority want it to be put in Room 101, we will do so. This thread is the hub of debate if you like, where you put your ideas, and I will stem the other discussions out of it. You can debate the Room 101 proposition in the specific thread, using your own knowledge, opinions, facts, science, religion, propaganda... really anything! The person who came up with the proposition will also be tagged in that thread so they can add their opinion in as well.

    If you have any ideas, let me know!

    This tag has enlightened me to being nominated in debater of the year. I was not even aware of that before now. So my pet peeve is how sometimes TSR tags work, and sometimes they don't.

    But serious, actual pet peeve? Hmm.

    People who walk while smoking. I am not a fan of getting a faceful of cigarette smoke or vapour while walking
    People who walk slowly, taking up the path, while on their phone etc. This one should be obvious

    This kind of relates to the slurping, but people who eat with their mouth open/talk with food in their mouth.

    Also creds for an amazing, original thread series :love:

    Taglist me please! :angel:

    Pet peeve: people who make noise when they eat. Loud open mouth chewing, making “mmmm” noises, scraping forks against plates. All of it makes my skin crawl. Eat like that in private if you want but have some manners when people are around at least.

    Put me in the taglist, seems fun!

    Just a side note to people submitting ideas... please don't choose any members of TSR to put into Room 101 as that wouldn't be very nice.

    You've been tagged, and that's fine; just let me know if you have any ideas in the future.

    Done, and I like that pet peeve (especially the scraping forks... eesh... :afraid:). Will use it soon, and I think Laurawatt said something similar so I will combine the two when I use it.

    People who drink tea and make that 'ahh' sound after they take a sip. Subhuman degenerates honestly. Do that **** in private pls, same goes for eating with their mouth open and using knives and forks like degenerates.

    Walking in rows of 3+ and walking very slowly on a path. Common with Chinese students at Uni. Please, just leave.

    People who stand in the middle of the aisle with a trolley, with not enough space to go left or right. But they're there staring into space as if their dad owns the store.

    On reddit when someone gets gold and they make really obnoxious, cringey edits hamming it up and killing the original comment. Usually Americans tbh, their humour is really horrible.
