Showpo Pet Peeves: What Grinds Our Gears

Humans can be super annoying...

How annoying are people? Very. Very annoying.

I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m not a negatron loner or anything. I just think (along with the entire Showpo team apparently), that life would be that much more swell without obnoxious and unwarranted behaviour from annoying humans.

Therefore, I’ve gotten the entire Showpo team to help me compile a list of pet peeves that drive us absolutely bloody bonkers.
