    Ep Pet Peeves

    This is just a little rant. Nothing personal. Just need to get it out of my system is all. Maybe I am just a *****. Probably. But my tolerance level must be diminishing in my old age. I know I will end up being one of those old ladies siting on her porch yelling at the...

    I really, really dislike one-liners,

    hearing people chew, lies and being ignored.

    Say It Out Loud Dammit!!

    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...

    Seriously? On An Airplane?

    Why do people think it is appropriate to get on an airplane and cut/file your fingernails? First of all, the clicking noise of clippers annoys the heck out of me, but then to watch bits of fingernails fly through the air and land on other peoples' heads is gross. Oh, and I just...

    1. jealousy 2. joining the dyed-blonde craze

    Is it a peeve or is it a neuroticism?

    I really dislike being near anyone eating a yogurt. I hate licking noises, I hate the sound of the spoon sliding against the tub. I hate how people will put a spoon of yogurt in their mouth and still leave some on it when they remove it. I don't even like it when I eat yogurt...

    There's one thing that I can't stand.

    .. When somebody leaves a shopping cart in a parking spot. It wouldn't kill somebody to take the time to take it to the cart holding thing - whatever it's called.

    I'm not a fan of when people refer to people I

    know as "your girl" or "your boy". It seems like these comments are always made in negative context and most of the time I barely even know who they are talking about.

    I want to smack anyone

    that uses words incorrectly! I hate hearing "irregardless" NO! It's not a word! The toilet paper roll MUST have the sheet on top, not below. I will fix it anywhere I go except in public, no option to do that. . .

    Calling your woman or referring to women

    as crazy, delusional, or any other synonym of the word crazy. I immediately become suspicious of those that do. Over the years I have heard this accusation being used to explain the failing of past relationships. This explains nothing. It is a vague explanation and an...

    when someone texts you,

    and you respond, and then they don't respond. Like, it's one thing to ignore me if i'm the one texting you first, but YOU were the one who sought ME out, and I actually took precious seconds out of my day to read and respond to your message. Least you could do is finish...

    It annoys me horribly

    when in rains briefly, while in a drought, and people complain about the rain. I recently had lived in San Diego County for years and I heard it every time it rained a bit. "I moved here for the sunshine, not to have it rain." It made me secretly want to slap them. But I'd still...

    because I do to sometimes. But it's the people who just keep talking and talking non-stop really fast that annoy me. Especially if they're screaming in my face. It's like they don't know when or how to stop. Chances are I was probably too overwhelmed to even understand anything...

    One of my biggest pet peeves is the way people

    walk. I hate when people walk to slow. I hate when people just stop in the middle of the hallways. I hate when I'm in school and making a turn in the hallway & someone just comes walking fast like slow down. People should walk like there driving a car.

    Children Screaming Needlessly
