Mimes earned my ire strictly because, in the original Sims game, they would show up unannounced and uninvited, and be generally irritating. If you asked them to leave, they would put a puppet on their hand and yell "NOOOOO" through the puppet. Using Buy/Build Mode in attempts to keep them out of your lots (or to get rid of them, kill them off, whatever) would usually fail.
Haven't really seen any in real life, so my exposure to Mimes is rather limited.
Now, if the title to the thread had been "Why Does Everybody Hate Mines?"... well, they have an irritating tendency to lay there nice and quiet, only to explode when you aren't paying attetion. Gee... maybe they're similar...?
