Day 36: Pet Peeves

Here are just a few of mine:

Drivers who wait until the last minute to turn onto the road front of you.

People who think they are “entitled.”

People who balance their check book at the store check-out counter, oblivious to the 10 people waiting in line behind them.

People who think you really care that they have a headache. :/

Drivers who talk or text on their phones.

Overly helpful sales people in department stores. (If they can’t make up my mind for me, 9 times out of 10, they won’t be able to help me.)

Drivers oblivious to their turn signal.

People who search every possible place on or about their person for the exact change at the check-out counter, oblivious to the 10 people waiting in line behind them.

Misspellings and poor grammar in a newspaper.

Misspellings and poor grammar on a website. (I know – I’m guilty of typos. . .)

Proofreading errors in books.

Misuse of IT’S. (I could write an entire 24-page post on THAT one!)


Last minute HUGE projects that just HAVE to be done TODAY.

Recorded telemarketing calls.

Right this minute: the wind positively SCREAMING through the front door.

People who believe they are “over worked.”

People who want you to believe they are “over worked.”

Callers who just can’t decide whether or not they want voice mail.

People who use the phrase “You people.”

Drivers who would rather talk to their passenger(s) than drive.


People who have a hissy fit if the sprinklers threaten to get water on their car. (For crying out loud, RAIN will do that if you don’t sqeegee it off in time.)

People who will watch you lug in numerous loads of supplies and not offer to help. (THAT one makes me fairly volatile.)

Drivers who ignore lane closures until the last possible minute.

Guess that will do for now, or my post will be one of YOUR pet peeves! Oh, celebrate anyway! C
