Pet Peeves

Let me first say that I very much dislike the term "pet peeves".  What the helll is a peeve, and what does a pet have to do with anything?!?  Okay, now onto the things that annoy the bajeesus  out of me.  Please add your own!

1. People dropping by unannounced.  This is probably my numero uno pet peeve.  I hate, nay, loathe the drop by.

2. Being late.  This mainly goes for myself.  It doesn't bother me too much when other people are late, but I get very anxious and uneasy when I am late for anything.  I am very, very rarely late to anything

3. When people use the words "always" and or "never" for things that are not "always" or "never".  For example, the other day MH says "...you always leave this light on."  I kind of went off a little because I do not ALWAYS leave the light on.  I leave it on when I am running in and out of that room trying to get things done, sure.  But I do ALWAYS turn it off when I am done with that room.  I don't know why this one bothers me so much, but it really does.

Go on, add yours! 

Re: Pet Peeves

  • People I barely know questioning my parenting choices. "Oh, you let her play with straws?" It's not like I'm teaching her to juggle knives.

  • Totally agree with you on 2 and 3!

    I'll add people who don't keep their dog on a leash when they are not able to control them. This happens too often in my neighborhood. And it's usually a smaller dog running up to me, barking at my much larger quiet dogs. I'm always tempted to say something like "you know if the situation was reversed and my dogs were off their leash running towards you barking, you'd probably be calling animal control," but I usually just give a look. Just because you have a small dog doesn't mean you can let it run around!

  • I have a lot, but I'll just list a couple:

    people who don't use turn signals or put them on as they are turning.

    when someone calls my work asking for advice then asks if I can hold so they can answer their call waiting. Also people who come to the counter on their cell phone.

  • YES!!! 100% your #2! That is me totally!!! I am NEVER late for anything (haha got you)... I'm rarely late for anything and if I am I'm a total anxious mess.

    Mine:

    1. Guilt trips. I hate them and they are totally unnecessary. You just make someone feel like total sh!t. I hate them.

    2. The turn signals! Or lack of using them I should say. What makes YOU so important (or lazy) that you can't use a turn signal that the law requires and it is for the safety of those around you, including yourself?!?!?

    3. People who chew with their mouth open. UGH! DH does this sometimes and it drives. me. mad.

    Going along with this one, people who bring small dogs to places that are not for dogs. Like the grocery store. Or Home Depot - I see this one guy at my local store often with a little dog  that he brings into the store and lets run around, off leash. I wonder what management would say if I showed up with my pittie mix or my rottie mix and let them run around, even though they are much better behaved then this dog (who runs up to people and jumps on them) ... 

    Also a pet peeve - people who think it is "cute" when their dog shows signs of aggression because they are "protecting them". My neighbors dog has bit mine before (not hard, my husband scared her away quickly) but the owner thinks its sweet because she is "protecting" her. As*hat.

    To go along with this... I can't stand when you're driving behind someone who leaves their turn signal ON and keep driving straight!  Are you turning into this driveway?  ...Into this driveway?  ...Down this street?  ...Are you changing lanes?   I can feel my heart rate increase when I'm stuck behind someone like this.

    I pretty much agree with every one that y'all have posted so far. I'll add:

    1. People who act like their lives are super perfect on FB, but everyone knows that your husband is cheating on you and you are in denial (just as an example ;)

    2.  When people pick their teeth with their fingernails after eating. So absolutely disgusting. Go get some floss or something.

  • Haha to your number 3. I'm totally guilty of that and my h loves to call me on it. His favorite thing to tell me is: only the dark side speaks in absolutes. Lol

  • In addition to those listed above...

    Hearing how horrible someone's day is, then they tell you what happened and its nothing.  I work with someone who is always so busy, or so frustrated, or so stressed.  And all I can think about is that I deal with a ton more stuff in one day than they deal with in a week.

     And of course men with colds (my post).  I only wish I could lay in bed all day with a tummy ache.... You're not dying, get up and do something, anything!  

    And finally, related to that above.... When someone (MH) complains about something related to their health, but then when they go to the doctor they don't ask about it or even bring it up to the doctor.  Then they wonder why this pain, or that thing won't go away... Maybe because you're not doing anything about it and haven't asked how to fix it?  Just a thought.

  • I have to completely agree with the loud chewing one.  And more specifically, spaghetti slurping!  My MIL, and all 4 SIL's are horrendous spaghetti slurpers and it grosses me right out.  Ugh.  And my one SIL is a major fork chewer also.  I cringe on Wednesdays when we see them for dinner. 
  • I have so many! I can't stand incompetence. Also hate when people expect accolades for doing their job! That's why you get paid, nimrod! Oh, and when people act like its such a hassle/ inconvenience to do their job. Can you guess what I'm dealing with today?

  • The general disregard for manners people have nowadays. No one is perfect but lots of people don't even try, like chewing with their mouth open, being late to things, etc. TheKnot really turned me into an etiquette fiend.

    Last minute planning and people who are late to work all the time and act like whatever. Seriously pisses me off.

    The running late thing is really a pet peeve of mine.  I get really anxious if I'm late for anything, so I usually end up 10 minutes early to everything.  So I really hate it when other people are late and then waste my time.

     I also hate when people make horrible nasty sounds when eating.  I work with one individual from another country and I refuse to sit anywhere near him because he's just so gross when eating.

     Finally, I just hate stupid people in general.  The kind of people who say or do something, and you just have to look at them and think "what the f*#$ is wrong with you?"  I have to say my MIL falls into this group.  She's probably one of the dumbest people I've ever met in my life...and sadly, my DH has even admitted that himself.

    It really annoys me during sexy time when DH thinks I must be overheated so he blows on me. He is actually trying to cool me off and that is so uneffective. Seriously. Just finish and quit playing cieling fan.

  • Gum smacking - fingers on a chalkboard to me. 

    People who drive massive SUVs and can't maneuver them.  If you have to strain your back and nearly hit me trying to change lanes, or you take up two spaces because you can't park your car...it's too big for you jacka$$!
