I don't get the reason for the chili flake on pizza pet peeve. Sure, chili flakes should reconstitute, but the time it takes is minimal if the flakes are small enough, yes? Thai condiments traditionally include dried chili flakes to add heat, and it does in fact do just that. It just seams silly, but everybody's pet peeves are based on idiosyncrasies anyway - including mine. I do in fact season my pizza with chili flakes, oregano, and parm. I also use cutlery. Maybe Kouk and I should never have pizza together. She'd probably explode.
Also, the supposed master of sushi in Japan (Jiro Ono, in "Jiro Dreams of Sushi) requires you to use your hands( no chopsticks anywhere), and slathers soy on each piece. Don't know if wasabi is already in the serving or not.
Pet peeve of mine? People who use cutlery like they were taught the day before. Especially the american style of cut, switch hands, and then stab their food with the forefinger on the top of the fork. I know it's a cultural thing, but it just looks inelegant to me.
The use of ketchup on everything or mandatory for burgers bugs me. Why? Ketchup masks the flavor of just about everything. Hell, that's how it's engineered - to activate every taste bud at the same time at the same level. At least store bough ketchup, anyway. That's why kids dump it on everything that they don't like. I stopped using ketchup entirely when I was 20 and loathe using it in BBQ sauces. I use mustard on my fries instead when in a burger joint from time to time.
Lastly, serving salad with the dressing on drizzled top on a plate that is too small. How am I supposed to mix it up without it falling all over?
