My pet peeves

Today I feel like sharing something completely different with you. I thought of sharing something cheery and happy (being Monday et al) but you know how it does, does that really make your day any better?! Thought not.

So I thought I’d rather be that old bag that shares my pet peeves with you, the things I seriously cannot deal with, and that are some-what accentuated on a Monday.

  • Sniffing/persistent coughing and snorting
  • Bone idle people
  • Un-kept feet
  • Bubble gum chewers
  • Thin, long hair (thin hair should be short)
  • People reading over my shoulder
  • Bad table manners
  • Slow walkers

Please share yours with me – I find this stuff funny…

    Slow walkers. GAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    People reading over my shoulders.

    People saying "really?" Eg. Me: My dog just died. Idiotic person: Really? Me: No, dimwit. I just say this stuff to get attention.

    Bad grammar/spelling.

    When I stand back at a door to let someone through [usually because they got there first, or they are older than I am] and then THEY stand back and tell ME to go through. Like, WHY?!?! I mean, imagine if I, in turn, ALSO do this! Are we going to stand here all day, because I was polite and they were retarded?!

    Ah, that felt good =)

    slow drivers in the FAST lane – pull over!!!

    lack of attention to personal space – a BIG problem in queues at government departments…

    loud music in beautiful public spaces – you're out in nature to enjoy the sounds of nature too… and generally your taste in music is not mine

    oh i could go on but i won't bore you with more of my pet peeves 😉

    People that open and eat food items in the supermarkets without paying for them first.

    Unpainted toenails. Or toenails in general.

    People with bad manners and 'crude' people.

    I love this post, a definite winning post for a Monday morning.. think I may do one of my own! Will post the link here when I do.

    i'm with you on all of yours, as well as…

    – drivers who don't indicate.

    – people who have really loud conversations on their phone in public.

    – people who read magazines in coffee shops attached to book shops and part of their meal in the magazine.

    -automated answer systems that never seem to give you the option to speak to a real human person.

    OMG Bianca you have reminded me of one of my biggest peeves – that BBM one. People who send an xxx then x and then smiley faces when you have had enough of speaking to them. Some people are just plain annoying on BBM!

    I'm glad someone else said it – pensioners full stop. They should only be allowed out the house out of rush hour times. I am so intolerant!
