Sunday Confessions: Pet Peeves
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on
Bright copper kettles with warm woolen mittens-
Brown paper packages tied up with strings-
these are a few of my favorite things!
Oh wait, this is about pet peeves not favorite things.
Let's get at it.
I'm pretty laid back.
Children running around amuck screeching, hyped up on all that pent up energy does not faze me that much. Kids will do that stuff it's how they roll.
When someone blurts out the end of a book or show I'm trying to finish? I'm going to find out anyway. I'm already dedicated, it's not ruined for me it ain't no big thing.
Bad grammar? I am a reformed grammar nazi. I do not pick, edit, suggest anything unless specifically asked to do so. How rude is it to tear apart someones words, their feelings because of the incorrect use of "your". It is just going to drive them away from you. If you can get the jist take it and don't be a prick.
Yippy pups? Nah. Normally the people complaining about dogs are more annoying.
People who talk to themselves or read their emails or book outloud to themselves? You're good bro! Some people have to do that so they can understand it.
Stuff like that doesn't bother me.
Other things do.
They come in all forms.
Holier-than-thous. Please, we know your shit stinks too. Don't judge those who sin differently than you.
Hypocrites-glass houses. That's all I got on that one.
Bigots-don't have time for your ignorance.
Aggressive advocates-I would listen if you weren't screaming and yelling. I get your passion but don't get not being able to explain it in a calm way.
Jerks-like the people that mock the fat guy at the gym working out. Really??
You would mock him for being fat but also for trying to improve himself?
Ugh. That gets under my skin.
Whatever form of judgy prick they take.I do not appreciate them nor do I want to associate with them.
You take 30 napkins, use 3 and throw away the rest....what is wrong with you?
That is rude and wasteful. Stop doing that stuff.
People who rush.
Unless it is life or death, or you're a doctor trying to save someones life-slow your roll and drop the 'tude.
It is not my fault you forgot to get snacks for the soccer team and are now late impatiently tapping your foot behind me in line at the grocery store giving me death glares.
I would have offered you to go first since you only have a few things but you couldn't even smile at my hello, so screw you skank.
Just kidding, I believe in being nice and making someone's day so I would offer them to go ahead of me. It's how I roll. Kindness can take you a long way friends.
That's mainly all I got folks.
Mainly it boils down to ignorance and rudeness.
I cannot stand it. There is no reason for it and the cure is education and compassion.
So if you're going to annoy someone have it be for your loud breathing, the way your jewelry clinks together or your loud chewing not because you're an asshole.
