I think my biggest pet peeve would be people who are impatient. The type who are like, "OMG, he took three puffs and hasn't passed the hose yet!" Hookah is supposed to be a relaxing social engagement, not a race.
My first time smoking my friends had a rule. If you want the hose, you say Hookah Hoot! The person with the hose is allowed one last draw. Then each person passing it to you gets a draw as a 'tax'. It works really well. It tended to be hit, hit, pass. Sometimes people didn't want one right then, so you got the hose until someone said hookah hoot.
