Episode 79: Pet Peeves: ALL THE THINGS That Annoy Us
We generally like to keep things pretty positive around here, but quite honestly the triple digit temps at the end of the summer tend to make us all our most irritable selves. Which makes it the perfect time for us to share our pet peeves. Maybe you can relate or maybe you're guilty of saying/doing ALL THE THINGS that drive us crazy. Either way, we know there will be lots of thoughts and opinions on our thoughts and opinions, so we're ready.
When people reference their mom and dad as “mom and dad” as if their parents are all of our collective parents. Guess what? Unless you're my sister, your mom and dad aren't my mom and dad.
When people are turning or changing lanes and don't use their blinker. Also, when you see someone turn their blinker on and you don't pay attention or act appropriately. Don't just hang out in their blind spot, that's just rude.
When people call themselves by a nickname. Like talking about themselves in third person or shortening their own name. This tends to happen with people named Meagan or Rachel (if you're a Meagan or Rachel in my life, I still love you.)
It really really really makes me angry when someone uses "should of" instead of "should have." Should've is a contraction between "should" and "have"- "of" makes an appearance NOWHERE in that exchange. So get that "of" out of here.
When people don’t return their cart at the grocery store and leave it in the middle of a parking space. How hard is it to walk the 20 feet to the cart return?
When people are in a public place (i.e. the grocery store) and they're talking on their phone having an in depth conversation. The post office line is not the place to catch up with your BFF on the phone.
When girls get married and don’t leave their maiden name on Facebook. Like, who are you? At least leave it for a year for people to become accustomed to your new name.
People who are late all the time. Like habitually late. If I know to expect you to consistently run 20 minutes late, I'm talking to you.
The phrase “all the things.” If only there was a word that encompassed that whole phrase, oh that’s right, there is, it’s called EVERYTHING.
When people think they're playing "background music" but it's turned up so loud you can't have conversation. I don't want to have to compete with Taylor Swift in order to talk to you.
