Pet Peeves

Monday, October 25, 2010

You know those things that aren't really that big of a deal, but for some reason, annoy you tremendously? Yeah - your pet peeves. I encountered one of mine today and that made me start thinking about the other things that bug me...

1) Ungroomed eyebrows - when women who have dark eyebrows take/post close-ups of their eyes and they haven't groomed their brows, it doesn't matter how pretty the eye shadow looks, I can't see past all the dark hairs that need to be plucked.

2) Dirty feet - I actually gag a little when I see people in sandals or flip-flops and their feet are dirty. It's even worse if they need a pedicure - and trust me, if their feet are dirty, they always need a pedicure, too.

3) People who get into line and aren't prepared. Do not get into the drive-thru line at the bank if you don't have your deposit/withdrawal slips ready!! Do not get into line at the post office if you don't have your package(s) taped & labeled!!

4) People who cough all over the place - or who cover their mouth with their hand & then proceed to use that hand to touch everything in sight. I'm not a germaphobe, but damn...

5) Waitresses (or waiters) who don't ask me if I'd like dessert before bringing me the check. Even if I don't want dessert, I like to be asked. Hello? If I buy dessert, my bill will be more - and if my bill is more, you're going to get a larger tip. If you don't bother to ask me - I'm going to tip 15% (or less, if the service also sucked) instead of my usual 20% or more.

What are some of your pet peeves?

I really, really, REALLY hate mouth noises. Chewing, smacking, clicking, etc...cannot stand it. I will get up and leave. I've been that way forever. Snoring also irks me in a way that it probably doesn't irk anyone else.

I also hate most texting abbreviations. I think they're okay on Twitter because you only have 140 characters, but that's about it.

Yay! I'm so glad I'm not alone in my "yes, I know it shouldn't bother me that much, but it does, so deal with it" world!! LOL!
