Coming back onto this week’s Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews.
Today’s topic is: My Silliest Pet Peeves
WHEN THERE’S WATER ALL OVER THE FLOOR AFTER SOMEONE TAKES A SHOWER.
I mean, I genuinely don’t understand how this happens though. It baffles me. Sometimes it’s like someone took a bath on the bathroom floor. How do you expect anyone else to walk into the bathroom without swimming to the toilet?
WHEN PEOPLE ARE LATE BUT THEY ARE CARRYING COFFEE.
You clearly had enough time to stop for coffee, but not enough to make it to my meeting, Brad? You can leave.
WHEN PEOPLE EAT SOMETHING REALLY SMELLY ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT.
I’m not a stickler for this because I’ve definitely been there where you’re so hungry and so far from home. BUT even then, I usually eat while standing outside the train station or bus stop – not in an enclosed space with other people. You may not know who has food allergies on the bus/train either which is risky. Mostly, I hate this in the mornings when someone has like a bacon sandwich. I’m usually trying to eat healthy. But I eat when I get to work, so smelling that bacon the whole way to work is excruciating, people!
SAYING “NO OFFENSE” BEFORE SAYING SOMETHING OFFENSIVE.
If you have to preface it with that, probably not the best thing to say. That’s all I’m saying.
MISSPELLING MY NAME WHEN IT’S RIGHT THERE.
This is almost every email I exchange at work. If you’re writing to me for the first time, fine. Even though my name is in my email. But fine. I let that slide.
It’s when you reply to my email but spell my name wrong, that upsets me. That means you failed to check the email address you were replying to, the signature where my full name is, or even above the signature where I write my name in manually AGAIN. It’s just lazy.
WHEN PEOPLE DON’T SILENCE THEIR PHONES WHEN PLAYING GAMES ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT.
I feel like most pet peeves involve public transportation because you’re in a confined space. I can deal with talking loudly, I can even deal with speakerphone/video conversations. It’s the repetitive sounds of a phone game that drive me crazy.
Anyone else share these?
