Oh…Those Pete Peeves!

Where do I even begin? This post is going to be fun…I hope that you enjoy my “Pet Peeve Ride!” So, sit back…relax, and by all means, please leave a comment with your personal pet peeve in case I miss it!

What is a Pete Peeve you ask? Well, a pet peeve is something that a particular person finds especially annoying. It is something that someone can’t resist complaining about. It’s something that drives you nuts and you need to voice it! The list is endless and varies from person to person. The funny thing is, is that some people don’t even realize that some of the things that they continue to do are SO annoying. I’m certain that I have an annoying trait or two…okay, maybe three….but it is, what it is.

My Top 20 Pet Peeves!

  1. It really annoys me when I am trying to find a place to park, especially at work when you find a place but the car next to you parked so crookedly that you can’t even pull your car in, so you move on along to the next spot. But even more annoying, is when you have parked and you are clearly within the white lines, but them come back out to get in your card to leave but the “idiot” next to you parked so close to the driver’s side that its no wonder they didn’t nick your car when they parked! This has happened to me so many times at work that I’ve had to climb in through the passenger’s side….over the console and into the driver’s seat. Hoping that I don’t scrape the side of the cars while trying to back out!
  2. When I happen to eat at a fast-food restaurant and the people that just left the only table that’s available to sit at and they leave all of there trash and leftover food on the table! It ‘s pretty obvious, that it is expected that each patron to clean up after themselves….but most people don’t…..so annoying.
  3. Leaving the overhead light on in a room that you are leaving. This may be a minor thing for some, but for me…it bugs me. How much trouble it is to turn out the light when you leave a room?
  4. Sitting at a light, when the car in front of you is clearly on their phone….the light changes, everyone starts moving except for the dink in front of you. This is annoying.
  5. How about when you’re in a hurry….walking fast and then you get stopped by the person taking their “Sunday-stroll” in the middle of the week. They clearly can tell you’re in a hurry, but don’t even bother to step aside.
  6. Being late. This is a sore spot in my house because I am usually early because I hate being late. If you are meeting someone and you’re late once, that’s one thing, but if it is an on-going thing, there is no excuse. So, I’m the one that always arrives early and ends up waiting on the late arrivals!
  7. Texting…I am old school, I prefer to hear someone’s voice. But the next best thing is texting. My biggest pet peeve about texting is that for me…common courtesy. When you text someone, don’t wait for hours or not at all to text them back! They may just need a reply back at that time. In case you hadn’t noticed, we can see on our phone that you have received the text and read it. So, don’t be rude and ignore it. Thank you. 🙂
  8. A BIG one for me is when I am grocery shopping and someone is on their phone shopping, walking up and down the isles, in full conversation about their entire life!!! STOP IT, PEOPLE, we don’t care!!
  9. Too much cologne or perfume. As the old saying goes….”A little dab will do ya”. If you’re not old enough to understand that phrase…sorry. But for those that do, don’t you agree? So many times I have walked into a “bath” of cologne and, or perfume and there is so much on that person that you taste it!
  10. A complainer. Really? We all have issues in one respect or another. But you really do not need to spread the wealth. Keep your negativity to yourself,
  11. Nailbiters…..I’m sorry, I have just never really understood this one. There must be something better to chew on. (keep it, clean people!)
  12. When you let someone ahead of you when driving because no one else will and they don’t even wave a “thank-you”…..Nice Manners Babe!
  13. This happens all of the time. When you are sitting in a waiting room and there is someone also sitting there waiting and they are on the phone, talking about their entire life! This one goes hand-in-hand with my pet peeve # 8.
  14. Drinking from the milk jug or orange juice container from out of the refrigerator! This is an absolute No-No. If I see it, I will no longer drink anything out of it!
  15. Women’s workout leggings. Really ladies! Did some of you not look in a mirror before you left the house? These legging should be banned! For a lot of women, they simply leave nothing to the imagination.
  16. Slow internet. Happens all of the time, and there is usually nothing that you can do about it but wait.
  17. Bushey eyebrows on a man. Come on now, they make trimmers for that!
  18. Comb-overs!!! WHY!!! Just own it, your losing your hair…who cares….it happens, move on. Believe me, you will look SO much better without that silly comb-over!
  19. When traffic is bumper to bumper and the dreaded motorcycle driver starts driving in between the cars. Really? How is it that you get that privilege? Stay in the bumper to bumper traffic, just like the rest of us!
  20. Dirty dished left in the sink. I’m sure your mama raised you better than that! If you’ve gone through the trouble of taking your dishes to the sink, well don’t hurt yourself rinsing them off, rinsing out the sink and putting the dishes in the dishwasher. See there….that wasn’t so bad! 🙂

A definite pet peeve!

Someone’s Pet Peeve

While no one is perfect, and I do not claim to be, the pet peeve list goes on and on. Not only do we all have pet peeves, but we are also probably someone’s pet peeve with things that we do.

So get out there…..enjoy life….but by all means, work on those pet peeves, someone one day will thank you for it! xo

  1. I’m totally there with you on number 2. The same goes for when people leave their popcorn bags in their seats at the kovie theater. It doesnt take much work to take your things to the trash and it’s the considerate thing to do.

    1. Laura, you are so right about movie theatre etiquette. 🙂

  2. Fun post! I have to say that when we were dating, my husband was always guilty of wearing too much cologne! He has been taught better now, haha!

    1. Lol! Thanks, Amber! Sometimes, we’ve got to do, what we’ve got to do!! 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh, me too! Especially the traffic ones. It can drive my annoyance from 0-100 in 2 sec! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Lol! Love it!
