a pet peeve of mine...

Based on this photo, can you figure out the pet peeve I'm talking about?

I really wish it didn't bother me. But it does. In some Japanese stationery. In work emails from some peers from non-English-speaking countries. In a Pasig road sign I pass on my way home that reads "RIGHT LANE MUST STRAIGHT AHEAD".

Even something as minor as incorrectly cutting words that go beyond a line (supposedly with a hyphen) bothers me. 

I don't feel anger or hatred for the people that commit them. Nothing like that. But I just can't help notice the mistakes committed. They just seem to jump out and scream at me with blinking lights. :(
