What are your pet peeves?
Off the top of my head- when people don't use their signal lights and when other people talk to me when I am on the phone.
Double dipping. I know it doesn't add any more bacteria, but do you really want to eat something that's been in someone else's mouth regardless of how clean it is?
People that are proud of bad things they've done. I know everyone messes up sometimes, but please don't brag about it.
People that interrupt me when I'm talking. Please shut up and listen before you talk. You didn't hear what I was about to say which is totally irrelevant to what you just said when you interrupted me. You can't predict what I'm about to say.
Back biters. If you don't like me, just tell me. I won't get offended. I know not everyone has to like me.
Thank's for giving me a place to rant.
Oh yeah, I hate the double dipping thanks for reminding.
Aww yes, glorifying negative behavior , I tell them exactly what I think about that. Interrupting, I simply say this is where I talk and you listen. I will let you know when I'm done then you can talk. Geez some people just earn this!
People making me late. I don't really even mind when other people are late (as long as I'm not waiting for a really long time) but I HATE it when I'm ready to go somewhere and have left lots of time to get there, and someone else (usually my husband) holds me up and I wind up being late.
People (driving) who don't stop at crosswalks.
People who say "I did ____ and turned out fine" to dismiss scientific evidence.
People leaving cupboard doors, kitchen drawers, Medicine cabinet doors, closets, dresser drawers open. I can't stand slow people, drives me nuts! People who always forget what you told them, or things the promised to do when you know they will as usual forget. I can't send it that people aren't as dependable as I am. I can't stand not being able to talk to a real person when I make a business call. I can't send being put on hold for long periods of time. I can't stand that people in business positions aren't proficient in their jobs and I have to help them do their job. I can't stand it when a Doctor thinks I should do what he wants, meds act. without researching it first. The Doctor being offended that I will not accept his treatment wanting to decide for myself. Disrespectful smokers, rude people in public places pushing by you no apology. Hmm there is a few. I am a rather intolerant person.
People who refuse to use their human potential to the utmost. It seems that some people prefer the safety of mediocrity than to strive for greatness. There are some people who refuse to be all that they can be.
People who want the good life but refuse to take the necessary steps that will help them became socioeconomically affluent. They endlessly complain about their socioeconomic predictament but do not want to put in the necessary work and planning to live a better life.
People who use the racial/ethnic injustices of the past as a crutch. Yes, there are people who use the race/ethnic card to make excuses for their lives. They bemoan the fact that they aren't where they want to be because of "society" and/or "THE MAN", refusing to take responsibility for and to be accountable in their lives.
People who knowingly have MORE children than they can afford to provide a good life for. Now THIS IS my main pet peeve. What are such people thinking, having children ad infinitum only to bring them up in poverty and want. Such children sadly do without even the basic rudiments because of their parents' stupidity and selfishness. Haven't these people heard of birth control?
Well, here are some of my pet peeves.

How do you remain patient when it seems as if everyone else is being blessed but you?There are several things that I've been praying about but at the top of my list, a new job. I know that the economy is bad but many of my friends have landed the job of their dreams while I'm still waiting on...

What weird hangup do you have?My son came home today with balloon animals. The sound balloons make is truly cringe worthy to me and then there's the whole being on pins and needles worrying they will pop. I HATE balloons. I know they make little kids smile, but I think they are...
