    Talking On The Cellphone On The Potty

    When nature calls me at work, I just want to sit down and poop in peace. The last thing I want to hear is a pooping cohort in the next stall talking on his cell phone. Dude, you're just not that important to be talking on the phone while taking a ****. When this happens to me...

    I Strongly Dislike Guys Telling Me I'm Legal

    I just recently discovered a new pet peeve of mine. It drives me crazy when I'm in the middle of an arguement and the person I'm argueing with mumbles something under their breath and refuses to tell you what they said. Don't say it unless you have the balls to say it loud enough...

    I've got about a million pet peeves.

    One huge one is when people of another race try to act like they know about my race. It's one thing to be curious or appreciate it but it's another thing to appropriate or be disrespectful. One of the biggest annoyances I've had (and it's mainly been with white people) is about...

    Clean the lint trap when you're done with the

    here are two of my pet peeves... 1) the 4-leaf clover 🍀 is NOT a symbol of either Ireland or St. Patrick. The three leafed shamrock is. 2) it's St. Paddy's Day, NOT St. Patty's Day. The Irish for Patrick is "Pádraig", for which the nickname is Paddy.
