Pet Peeves

Before you read this, I have warn you.  These are my honest pet peeves and may or may not relate to you.  I don't mean to offend anyone.  I'm sure there are things I do or write about that drive you nuts too.  Some I will leave vague, but none are directed toward any one person.  So don't get your undies all in a bundle when you read this.  And just remember, it's my blog and I write what I feel.  So here we go...

1.  Stupid drivers - mostly people that drive UNDER the speed limit.  Under normal circumstances, it is ok to even drive a few mph OVER the speed limit.  Crazy thought, right?  Also, when people don't get over in the right lane to let you pass them.

2.  People that act like they've never seen a pregnant woman before.  It's amazing the stares I get from people.

3.  People that post attention seeking status updates on Facebook (i.e. "OMG, Are you serious?).

4.  Speaking of Facebook (oh, I could go on and on with Facebook pet peeves), incorrect spelling and grammar.  I guess people just don't care, but if I don't know how to spell something, I check dictionary.com before I post it.  I'd rather take the 30 seconds to check rather than look unintelligent.  And the misuse of your and you're, there, their and they're, etc drives me crazy.

5.  When people use more than one exclamation point.  An exclamation point is used to indicate strong feeling toward something.  When you use one, we know you are excited.  We don't need 17 of them!!!!!!!!

6.  Bad customer service (separate post coming soon on this one)

7.  When dishes are put in the sink without being rinsed off.

8.  People who talk crap.  I'll leave this one vague :)

9.  Drama.  I'd rather keep my mouth shut and move on than create drama.

10.  People that eat peanuts behind me at Brewer games and then kick the shells under my seat, which is usually where my purse sits.

11.  When Tyler is driving on the interstate and comes up behind a slower driver in the right lane and waits until he's right on their ass to get over to pass them.

12.  When people leave a comment on my blog anonymously and don't include their name.

13.  When people use the bathroom by Kyla's room while she's sleeping and slam the door.  You can turn the handle before closing the door and it is much quieter.

And now I feel I need to redeem myself with a "Things I Love" post.  Haha.  I'll work on that next :)

What are some of your pet peeves?  Please share so I'm not the only one looking grumpy today :)


  1. Love it! I actually have A LOT of pet peeves. Haha but I totally agree with the grammar on Facebook and the bathroom door shutting because our bathroom is right next to our son's room too. The dishes not being rinsed off is a sure way to make steam come out of my ears and bad customer service is a definite way to make this woman cause a scene. Others of mine also include people who talk with their mouth full (for obvious reasons but yet people STILL do it). The smacking of gum. Talking like you're illiterate or ghetto. Oh man, I could go on and on (and I'm not even in a bad mood lol).

  2. *Drivers who pass me (and I don't drive that slow, usually 60 in a 55) and then the slow down and turn right.

    *people who say "irregardless". Regardless covers it.

    *people from work who don't sign into AIM. That's what its there for and I hate calling the main office for every little thing.

    *Etsy sellers who smoke. I have gotten fabric that totally stinks.

    * my youngest daughter who will not rinse out her milk glass and it gets all gross.

    *people who didn't talk to me in HS wanting to be my friend on facebook. why? Also people who are friends of friends wanting to add me, I have no idea who they are and it weirds me out.

    *the fed ex man who leaves my packages in the ditch by my mailbox. (I know I have a long driveway - get over it). If a company ships fed ex I don't buy from them. (too bad, I miss Alice!)

    oh Amy, I think my list is longer than yours! LOL

  3. I guess I better sign my name from now on. I hope I am on your "Things I Love" list. LOL

    Your mother

  4. Haha this is too funny! Makes me want to do a pet peeve post!

  5. Oh man, I'm so guilty of the exclamations thing!!!!!!! ;-) But I think it's genetic....pay attention to when my mom comments on my blog--I always chuckle because she uses exclamations for absolutely everything! haha

  7. This post was great, Amy! More people should embrace what irritates them! Ha. :)
    I have to agree with you on a lot of them, but more than anything, the grammar one. I absolutely cringe when I see people misusing language. I'm seriously a huge nerd/freak about it. I could honestly cry thinking about what it will be like when our kids grow up, but by then there will probably be computers that read people's thoughts and transfer them into "text speak" automatically so they don't even have to put forth the effort to understand grammar at all.

  8. I have to admit, I am one that uses multiple exclamation marks! :)

    I agree with you on the grammar one; it drives me nuts.
