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)
