Can’t find a place to post? This is a place for all the rest. If we get enough interest, we’ll create a new category.
We all have them, some of us more than others. Without getting personal or naming names, post your peeves here. My favorites are people who are in the intersection when my light turns green, texting in movies, and loud car radios.
Big, plumpy, unpopped zits! I know, everybody reading this just lost their appetite!
Where should I begin?
People who do stupid things like graffiti, litter, vandalism, burglary, illegal drug trade, etc…. and all the other selfish destructive behaviors that cost our community to spend limited funds to repair or eradicate. Such activities lower the standard of living for everyone.
When did it become OK to wear pajama bottoms in public?
Worse than that Groucho-boxer shorts!
People–especially news anchors and talking heads who should know better–who use the obsolete phrase “illegitimate child” and oxymoran “instant classic.”
Parents can be illegitimate, children are not. A classic is something that has stood the test of time, it can’t be instant.
Did shopping and errands today. First day of the month, so of course it’s going to be busy. I was somewhat surprised at the number of children running amok who should have been in school.
(just waiting for someone to jump on cats observation with a comment about welfare mommas and child delinquency)
People who pass me on the freeway, then slow down in front of me. People who slow down while merging onto the freeway. People who slow down just because they see a CHP, even though they are with the flow of traffic. Trucks…all of them. People who can’t be bothered to pay attention…rear end someone and block the freeway…causing me to be late to work or late getting home. Stupid people. Can you tell I have a long commute?
It never fails. If I’m on a plane, train, in movie theater, at a funeral or wedding, I always get stuck near a crying baby. I realize babies cry because that’s what babies do. I could be at the bottom of the Grand Canyon meditating nature in solitude and isolation and some mom will sit next to me with her bawling illegitimate child. : )
I have many pet peeves, but two of my biggest peeves are stupid people, and the local news reporters.
Oh wait, that’s redundant.
