Q: What one trait bothers you most in another person?

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.): “I never get annoyed. Always a happy camper.”

Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.):
“Arrogance. Look around you.” [Laughs]

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.):
“It varies. Some traits that are annoying in some people are not in someone else. Traits do not exist independently of the person.”

Rep. John Olver (D-Mass.):
“I suppose it’s a [person who believes] there is only one way to do things — ‘It’s my way or the highway.’”

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.):
“Dishonesty. I appreciate that you said ‘others.’”

Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-Calif.):
“I guess it’s people who think they are better than someone else, those who look down on the poor or less fortunate. That annoys me.”

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.): [Long pause] “Arrogance. I think it’s important for all of us to be humble. It’s not always easy in this world we live in up here, which is why it’s especially important to make a great effort to do it.”
Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.): “Self-importance. It just rubs me the wrong way, people who think they’re more important than someone else.”

Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.): “People who don’t keep their commitments.”

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.): “Not sharing your dessert. I really resent it when I reach across the table for some ice cream and they get resentful because I double-dip the spoon and they have a little sniffle or something.”
