JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It's a question you can ask anybody and expect to hear an earful in return: What is your biggest pet peeve?

Nails on a chalkboard, people complaining about how hot it is? Social media complainers?

The Harris Poll released this week, breaks down America's most annoying pet peeves, and none of those made the list.

2,234 adults were surveyed online between March 12, 2014 and  March 17, 2014.

Disruptive children topped the list with 86-percent. The study shows Americans get very annoyed when parents let their kids run wild in public.

85-percent find openly rude people annoying.

Slobs are close behind.

80-percent of those surveyed were annoyed with people who are chronically late for dates and appointments.

People who talk loudly on their cell phones annoyed 65-percent of people.

60-percent can't stand when emails are written in all caps.

So today on our Facebook pages we are asking you, what annoys you the most? Is it something on the list? Or is it completely different?

Comment on our Facebook page and let us know, and we'll share some of your best responses later in the 9 o'clock hour of The Morning Show.
