Day 87 Question 87:
What are some of your pet peeves?
Ok, I try my hardest to always remain as positive as possible. I am even having a terrific day today. I just happened to pass by the thought of pet peeves and thought it would be a good topic to write about. Let’s face it…we all have them. These are those minor annoyances in life that don’t take control of us but we might enjoy the day just a tad bit more if these things weren’t occurring. I admit that some of my pet peeves are superficial…See there I admitted to my own fault ;0) Like I said, these pet peeves are nothing that control my days or ruin my life…they are just those things that make me cringe (sometimes for good reasons and sometimes for absolutely no good reason). I am sure that I probably have a million habit that make other people absolutely crazy. I actually find this a funny topic and I thought it would be fun to write about because it would allow me to read and re-read the silly things that sometimes just big me momentarily. I think we need these pet peeves in our lives so we have the opportunity to laugh at ourselves…I mean if we can’t laugh at ourselves then I believe we aren’t living. Ok so here we go…DIANE’S PET PEEVES:
~People that chronically complain-It makes me want to say, “Have you ever had a good day in your whole life?” Children are being raped and murdered everyday but their continual hangover or the fact that their husband/wife didn’t buy them what they wanted for their birthday is reason to bitch and whine about life being so terrible every second of everyday.
~People who never admit to faults/take ownership of their mistakes. Instead they decide to blame everything and everyone else.
~Hearing the world Frustrated pronounced wrong (meaning it being pronounced FUstrated-there is an R in there people)…I find that very Frustrating ;0)
~Negative political ad campaigns-Really? Millions of dollars are being spent for a big he said/she said argument. Can’t imagine why this country is in the shape that it is in?
~People that drive slow in the left lane. I can’t tell you the number of times I have been behind this slow driving person and screamed (as if they could hear me), “BIG PEDAL ON THE RIGHT PEOPLE!”
~People using the term Boo for their significant other (or any other term of endearment). This one is just me being picky—it’s just like the sound of nails on a chalkboard for me (shudder shudder).
~Extreme improper English. I was an English major in my Undergraduate Studies. I am far from perfect when it comes to reading and writing but I know better than to say, “I ain’t go no cheese” or “We be going to the store.” I mean…this is first grade stuff here.
~Being asked at least once a week why I am single. Yes, I am 33 years old, single, never married with no children. This does not mean that I am some sort of freak! ;0)
~Know-It-Alls. No matter what you talk about with some people they always have more information and more knowledge than you and their experiences have been way more exciting and educational than yours. They have the answers to everything and they are always right no matter what and they are going to let you know that ALL OF THE TIME! Know anyone like that?
~Getting pimples in my 30’s. This is more of an annoyance than a pet peeve but come on….can the hormone fairy cut me some slack already :0)
~People that go from “Single” to “In a Relationship” to “Single” to “In a Relationship” to “Single” to “In a Relationship” (I think you know where I am going with this) every other week. This has absolutely no effect on me whatsoever…I just can’t imagine relationship hopping that much. If you are constantly changing your status like that maybe you need to realize you are just not good at relationships…hahahaha ;0)
I probably could go on listing minor pet peeves that occur at random times throughout the day/week/etc. but I shall end here….because I want to hear what your pet peeves are. Remember this is a light-hearted subject….no need to go into any rages here. All in good fun! :0)
I have a couple of pet peeves that really weigh on me.
1) Waiting. I hate waiting for people. I’m one of those people who are always early for work, early for dr’s apts, everything. I can’t stand to have to wait for people who are always late. It’s so very annoying to me.
2)People who have constant drama on their facebook page.. I mean, it’s the end of the world Lord help me drama. The world is out to get them drama. These people seem to create their own drama but don’t realize it, or they love it.
Your post made me laugh! Why is it that these simple things can make us crazier than expected? One of my favs is trying to get folks to take the “f” out of bathroom …it isn’t bafroom. UGH, don’t get me started!
Thanks again for the giggle, because deep down inside me, I know there’s something I do that is on someone’s list, too.
I just laughed so loud thinking about people saying BaFroom :0)
pet peeve, Hillary Clinton and Obama
You and my dad would be best friends :0)
Totally agree with all yours…but let me tell you, getting pimples when in one’s mid-60s is soooo very much worse!
I’ve been trying to systematically weed out pet peeves in my life… However, two that I can think of is people driving slow in the fast lane on the interstate and people being loud when I’m trying to be quiet. 😀
I love your post!! Heck, I enjoy all your posts. I also work hard on being positive but there are a few pet peeves for sure. You mentioned a few of mine. ha ha
One of mine is ‘spelling’. I can’t believe how some people spell!
Another one that comes to mind and is a biggie for me:
When you are at the GYM and the sign tells you to wipe the machine down after you have used it….hmmmm…Do some people think their sweat is better than mine? Do some people think they have no germs? ha ha
I could go on and on. Okay, when they take their towel and sit on it and then when they are done they wipe the machine down. Gross!! Do they think that the spray bottles and paper towels are there only for decoration?
I must stop now…. Have a super day. 🙂 Renee.
Know-it-alls. If you don’t have one in your life then you are in heaven! Apart from that I think about the neighbors that listen to music extremely loud. And they tend to listen to music that you hate the most! Now that is annoying.
HI Diane. I found this Quote the other day and thought of you right away. It goes with the comment you have made..
“~Being asked at least once a week why I am single. Yes, I am 33 years old, single, never married with no children. This does not mean that I am some sort of freak! ;0)”
The Quote I found is from…DeepLifeQuotes….
“Being with no one is better than being with the wrong one. Sometimes, those who fly SOLO have the strongest wings.”
I think of you with “Strong Wings”. 🙂 Renee
Thank you so much Renee 🙂
YOU are very welcome Diane 🙂
Brilliant! Love this post! I am with you on the pimples thing and the one that spring sto mind instantly is people that grind their teeth…grrr
I would have to say, people who don’t signal when turning really drive me up a wall. I mean, the little signal stick or what have you is right there…… RIGHT THERE! Yet you mean to tell me, you can’t take two seconds out and just hit it? You’re slowing down but are you turning? Or are you just a slow driver? Let me know. Communication is key.
Any of these that include irresponsiblity and nosiness are ones I whole-heartedly stand with you on, Diane!
Omg I’m one of those people who say Fustrated, but that’s because this whole time I thought it was the way it’s pronounced (English is my second language). From now on I will now be saying Frustrated instead of Fustrated, thanks to you Diane! lol
Hahahahaha you totally get a pass since English is your second language ;0)
My pet peeve are people who take something off the store shelves, decide they don’t want it, and then put it back somewhere else. This is just rude.
It’s good to vent like this!
Bella: My pet peeve is when someone calls me “pretty Bella.” Don’t they know this is redundant?
DiDi: My pet peeve is when someone doesn’t want to play. How could you not want to play?
I love this so much :0)
Hi Diane, Looks like we share some of the same pet peeves. I would add the overuse cheese, people who say “Do you have your ______ ON you?” instead of “…with you…” or just “…Do you have ____?”, and the the incorrect use of “mute” in place of “moot.” Looks like a wonderful blog. Thanks for stopping by and following mine.
I could have written this post myself! But now I don’t have to because you already did! Love it!
