Pet peeves

Pet peeves - we all have them. I have so many to choose from - should I share them all? I decided not to, because I would come across as a judgemental bitch because, who has the time?

So here are my top 10 pet peeves:

Complainers. People who love to complain, but have zero intention of changing anything about it. If you don't like it, change it; if you don't want to change anything, stop complaining about it.

Purty. I don't know why, but I hate it when people say purty instead of pretty. Why mess up a perfectly good word?

Like. Kids, please stop saying that in every sentence. Just stop it. It makes you sound dumb.

Literally. If you say "I literally died", that means you did, in fact, die. Which of course you didn't, since you were alive and well enough to make that statement.

Cellphone noise. Texting with the keyboard sound on is the worst; followed closely by having an annoying incoming text ringtone. Unless you have Rue's whistle, that one is awesome!

Personal space invaders. Brr, I don't like that one at all. When I slowly back off, that means you are too close!

Vague Facebook statuses. People who hint at something being wrong, but when they get inevitably asked what it is, say that "they don't want to talk about it". Why did you post it in the first place then??

Tapping fingers. Especially when they have long nails.

Abbreviations. Most of the time I can't remember what they stand for. Please, just use the full word?

Apple/tomato stickers. I don't find the stickers themselves annoying, but hate my husband's habit to stick them to the counter or cupboard. Argh!

What are some of your pet peeves? Tell us!

  1. OMG we are twins. Add whistling and children singing Christmas carols to this list and I swear I wrote it. Haha! My daughter tends to leave the fruit stickers on or in the sink along with her used tea bags.

  2. I hate the vague Facebook status about something being wrong. Why even bother to announce anything!! Personal space is also a pet peeve of mine, I hate for people to stand too close. I once snapped at this guy in a food truck line for invading my space. I also don't like people who hold your hand for too long after a shake, I find it skeevy.

  3. My dad used to put all fruit stickers on the underside of this one kitchen cabinet, you had to crouch down real low to see it and the day he showed me he was so proud and I was like ummmmm you are weird!

  4. I am with you on people using the word like and literally. I am guilty of it once in a while but not 20 times in a sentience. It is overkill. Personal space invaders are horrible. I hate when someone steps so close to me and people who randomly touch me for no reason. I love the mockingjay Rue's song. I agree on the vague facebook status. If something is wrong share it or don't share anything at all.

  5. Vague facebook statuses...oh my goodness I can't take them! I have a few facebook friends who I SWEAR have not yet grasped the idea of a status. This isn't twitter, it isn't a session with your psychologist-it's Facebook! I think it's just a reach for attention when people post super vague statuses...definitely a pet peeve of mine!

    Also, I can't stand when people chew their gum and you can hear it. There's nothing worse than hearing a piece of gum sloshing around in someone's mouth throughout an ENTIRE class period...I hate to admit, but I've actually asked someone to spit out their gum, please, during class one time. It's a HUGE pet peeve of mine!
