When I am the only one with a bag or backpack and everyone else makes me carry their wallet/cell phone/book.
Do you know why I carry a bag? To be self-sufficient. Did it ever occur to you that I find bag-carrying just as annoying as you, but I carry one anyway because I like having my wallet and keys and reading with me while not bequeathing my inconvenience to others? Now my bag is six times heavier than yours would have been if you'd just taken your own. Bonus points if you roll your eyes and sigh when it takes me 20 minutes to find something of mine because of all the other crap in there.
I wish there was a place to buy fanny-packs for like a dollar (I am really wondering and not suggesting the dollar stores carry the item), so you can stuff your bag with those and hand them out to people who want you to carry their shit. Half the time I really hate carrying a purse, so if I'm not going to take it, I am comfortable with what I need in my pockets. The real problem with peeves is there aren't enough sociable solutions to them, like I'd have to tolerate this foisting of shit into my purse with a smile, but giving away free fanny-packs would be odd and people would complain.

That's a good point, Kerrin â??Â responding to a peeve is a peeve itself. That's one thing that makes a good peeve: you can't respond to it without looking like a jerk.
