Time for me to complain about one of my pet peeves: Yelling.

It really bugs me. Particularly, it bugs me that it's the chosen form of communication for both my father and brother. Further, it bugs me that the rest of my family - all of them - believes that the best form of communication in the house is yelling. Now, I'm the kind of person who prefers some good old fashioned face-to-face communication (though eye contact still bugs me), so I find it rude when they yell at me from the bottom of the stairs. I find it incredibly rude when they get mad at me for not hearing them yell at from the bottom of the stairs because I've had to turn my music up way loud to keep from hearing them yell at each other when they're in the same room!
