List: Pet Peeves

Today is one of those days when I’m in that cranky, everything-bothers-me mood.
Come on now, I know you all know what mood I’m talking about!
Instead of fighting it with fake smiles and even faker giggles, I decided to embrace it.
That means listing things that annoy me on a regular day and celebrating that they haven’t happened today.




1. When my ice cream bowls are used for dip.
Since I went out of my way to buy a bowl for a particular purpose, use it as such!

2. When coffee splashes and leaves a stain on your blouse the size of a period.
Oh, how this irks me!!  That stupid, little stain will taunt me until I change my shirt!

3.  When people walk by wreaking of their cologne.
Not only did you make my nose twitch, but it makes me wonder if you showered.  Ew, germs!

4.  When people pronounce the word idea as "I-DEAR".
Why?  Just why?  ...I'm looking at you Madre...

5. When people crack their knuckles or any other bone on the body.
I always get that quick moment of horror when I'm afraid they cracked too far!  Bleh gag barf.

6.  When people do over exaggerated nose huffs.
You may be having a rough day, but think of all the boogies and germs you just put into the air!!

7.  When my future hubby squirts the toothpaste directly into his mouth.
Why can't you just put a neat line of toothpaste across the toothbrush bristles like everyone else?!

8.  When my phone auto corrects my text messages.
I received a text from Biff a while back that said "Please excuse my side boobs".  Enough said.

9.  When people put empty boxes back into the cabinet.
Do you want me to think we have more left, or are you just playing pretend?  Sigh!

10.  When someone asks "Can I open the door for you?" and waits for an answer.
That was one of the most awkward pauses and blank stare of my life!

What are your pet peeves?

  1. These are all really funny. # 10 must have really annoyed you, since most likely it only happened once.

    1. LOL!! It's kind of, sort of, what triggered the post. I mean, I'm walking into work and a coworker says "Can I open the door for you?" and then just stared at me. Then after a few seconds of awkward silence, I say "Ok". I mean, it was just strange. VERY strange. hahaha

  3. lol, embraceeee it! That's funny. 3 is so on point!!! I hate that too. Also cracking up at your huge aversion to germs, it's so funny. I never thought about that with the nose huffs and now I will- dangit!

    I hate when people pronounce Ee-talian dressing as EYE-talian dress. Is it from EYE-TALY? Ugh.

    I also hate when there are dirty dishes in the sink at work. Who exactly do they think takes care of those?!? Your mom isn't an employee here!

    Ugg to number 3, those people can make your eyes water. They need to get a clue. Yuck to the toothpaste in the mouth as well.

  5. I'm mostly irritated and ready to kill when someone or something stops me from eating, or when somebody leaves poop and pee in my toilet. Those things could get you killed with me :)

  7. Great minds...I was thinking of doing a post like this.

    Someone said mushroons the other day. I just cracked up. Oh, and expresso for espresso. X? haha.

    A few years ago I started getting the mister his own tube of toothpaste. I just couldn't share anymore. lol....

    Many of my irritants are germ related. Auctions are very germy....

    oh, don't get me started.

    1. lol!! That's a good idea. I'll get him his own toothpaste and maybe even his own bar of soap. Great advice!

  8. When I wish somebody a nice day and they say, "Okay" instead of, "Thank you". Or when they see our flats are $18 and ask where Payless is. Same lady. I'm sick and I considered following her out to sneeze on her, but I'm not that gross. Lucky for her.

  9. It took me a while to think of one, but I hate it when people say they hate something without ever having seen/read/listened to it.
