Pet peeves come in two flavors. In the first case, something may be bugging you, but that something really isn't really a big deal and you just need to chill. In that case, get over it, and the sooner the better. However, in some cases pet peeves are a real problem--they may be affecting your productivity and the productivity of your coworkers. In cases like that, you've got to take action. The best way to deal with a serious pet peeve, no matter what it is, is to hit it head on.

When you hit the “connect” button on someone you want to connect with on LinkedIn, you’re first asked “How do you know XXX?”. Just below that query you’ll see a box entitled “Include a personal note: (optional)”, within which sits the default message “I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn,” along with your name in closing. All you do is place your cursor on the default message, delete it and enter whatever personal message you choose, before sending it.
In fact, the Humane Society estimates that there are at least 10,000 individual puppy mills in the United States, and those puppy mills are producing more than million dogs a year. And of those 10,000 puppy mills, less than 3,000 of them are actually regulated by the . Department of Agriculture, meaning that more than 7,000 puppy mills are left free and unchecked to do whatever they want, which all too frequently results in inhumane conditions and rampant dog abuse. The Humane Society states that currently, 99 percent of dogs and cats sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where animals are basically mass-produced, forced to live in inhumane, unsanitary environments, and given little to no medical attention.
