pet aversion


I found ' pet aversion' in an article and looked up the meaning of this expression. My question is whether this expression is common in spoken English. Do you ever say that my pet aversion is smokers in daily conversation?

    Hi amby

    I don't think I'd often say "pet aversion"; I'd be more likely to say "pet hate".

    ("Pet peeve" is something I first came across here on WordReference, and I do use it occasionally. But the natural expression for me is still "pet hate":).)
