Pet Peeves

I myself know I do/say some pretty annoying dumb things at times. I try not to have a lot of pet peeves because they sometimes involve other people & as the saying goes “nobody is perfect”. I’m more than sure I get on my brother’s last nerve, my parents, & possibly the boyfriends too but he hides it better than my family members, who have no problem telling me how they really feel.

Tele-markers – I’m never interested in what they have to say. Use to when I was around my cousins & they were smaller I’d answer then quickly hand the phone over to the smallest and tell her it was Santa’s elf.

No signal users – I want to say that is how people get hurt. If someone happens to be in your blind spot and you decide to scoot over a lane the person in your blind spot doesn’t know until they’ve almost been hit & their blood pressure is up.

Know it alls – Zip it! They don’t know everything. They may know everything about their life & what works for them but not everyone else. Here is the thing, we aren’t all made of the same cookie cutter.

Last worders – These people should pick their battles, they’d have more friends. There’s a power struggle there that someone might need to address.

Problem makers – There could be the easiest task on this planet and this person is going to complicate things for absolutely no reason. My theory is that this type of person likes the sound of their own voice.

Nose blowers – Don’t get me wrong this is a daily bodily function but I don’t think it needs to be done while eating. I’m glad you’ve finished your meal and I hope it was lovely but I don’t care to hear the innerards of your nose coming out while I’m trying to enjoy my lovely meal.

The Stare Downers – What are you looking at. Are you trying to stand perfectly still as if you can’t be seen?

Those are a few in detail that just bother me. Other things are:

• Dirty bathrooms
• Wet money (you know the kind. During the summer especially. Accumulating that ocean water or butt sweat. Eeek!)
• People who sing when they can’t (bless your heart!)

That’s about it for me. I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my peeves. I know we’ve all done a few of these from time to time but it’s the repeat offenders that irk me. My mom has a few weird pet peeves. She doesn’t like the sound if someone crunching, like when eating cereal or chips. We can’t really pick in her because she doesn’t eat chips or cereal.

Do we share the same pet peeves? Hopefully mine aren’t too bad.

    Somewhere I started a list of pet peeves, but I have no idea where I put it at the moment. The first things that come to mind this a.m. – people who lie (I work with someone who makes lying or exaggerating a daily habit) and those robo calls. Have a great Wednesday!

    • Leslie says:

      Oh I can’t believe I forgot about the liars. Oh yeah and that’s a big one. Girl I’ve had some of these people look me in my face and lie to me. They knew and I knew it was a lie, so terrible. Hah, those robo calls are the worst. I hope you have a great Wednesday!

      It irks me so bad. Haha I’ve actually had to listen to someone tell the lady who’s been here for 25+ years how to do her job, this girl has been working with the company for 3 weeks. Girl, have a seat. Haha. Happy Wednesday!

    Ewww to the wet money! Sooo gross! I always hated that when I worked retail. Another gross one was when people would reach into their bra to pull out money. Ugghhhh!

  4. I agree! All of these can be so annoying! That’s so funny about the tele-marketers :O Santa’s elf using the telephone, they are getting better at technology clearly ;P

  6. I would have to agree with ALL of these! I have wet money, too! Ew! I hate handling dry money, too… money is just yucky (unless its in my savings account! lol). One that I would add to this list is I hate fake people. Oh, and friends that are impossible to make plans with and cancel at least 3 times before you actually meet up. It makes me feel like I’m not all that important to them. Ok, done. 🙂

    Problem makers! These types make my head want to explode. I was going to write a post about it the other day with a specific person in mind but didn’t, maybe I still will and tie it into a pet peeves post!

    Elves? That’s a great solution! I used to hate the sound of crunching/chewing, and now one of my kids has the same pet peeve. 🙂

    Egomaniacs- Get over yourself! lol, and, yes, I married one. But he makes up for it in so many ways. And I let him know its annoying. I once told him that I think he fell in love with me because I refuse to make his ego any bigger, LOL.

    Ohhh you have some great ones listed. I’m working on my son… he’s become a bit of a last worder…. {shakes head} we’re fixing that…
    I’ll raise your wet money… how about wet socks! I cannot stand wearing a nice pair of comfy socks, and then step in a puddle of once frozen ice that fell from the fridge that NOBODY bothered to pick up. Laziness is another one, umm you saw the ice fall or heard it, pick it up.
    Happy SITSBlogging Saturday!
    XOXOXO

    Couldn’t agree more with all of these! I also would like to add those people who need to barge onto public transport – as a London commuter you’d think I’d be used to it but it STILL makes me question humanity…
