Confessional Friday – Pet Peeve Edition

Oh, this week’s confessions will be fun. I may have a list a mile long. Why? Because since Leslie has introduced suggested topics for Confessional Friday, this week I am going to be confessing some of my biggest pet peeves! And I have a lot. ha!

So, I confess to you that these are the things that drive me CRAZY!
  • When two cars are driving the same (slow) speed in both lanes right next to each other! Move over and let people get around you!
  • Poor customer service. It makes me ANGRY. Nothing requires me to use your service or business. Treat me poorly and I will not be back.
  • When cars have their windshield wipers going full blast and it’s barely sprinkling. I don’t know why this bothers me, but it does.
  • I cannot stand being ignored. In person, text messages, emails, online, etc. I especially get annoyed when I reply to someone on social media and they reply to a million and one people except me. RUDE.
  • Know it alls. When people know EVERYTHING and ALWAYS have something to contribute about EVERY.SINGLE.TOPIC it drives me crazy.
  • One uppers. You know the kind. The person whose situation always has to trump yours. Seriously annoying.
  • Cheaters. I don’t care what kind of cheating it is. People who cheat to get ahead are not cool.
  • Lying. I cannot stand to be lied to.
  • When someone uses the last of the toilet paper and doesn’t change the roll. It’s not that hard.
  • And while we’re talking about toilet paper, I dislike when it rolls from under and not from over. How do you like your roll to fall?
  • I know I should just be thankful that Zach empties the dishwasher, but it drives me batty when he puts things away wet. It takes a couple extra seconds to dry them out!!!
  • I get annoyed when people don’t follow through. If you say you’ll do something, do it. If something comes up, totally cool, but at least let the person know. Don’t just bail.
  • Alright, I'll say it: poor and incorrect grammar and misspellings. It's like nails on a chalkboard. Their/there is not the same! Neither is you're/your. I get the occasional typo, but constantly. A person on FB the other night was making fun of the guy who walked across the grand canyon and posted a status that said "I think I'm board, I'll walk across the Grand Canyon." Would've been a lot more effective if you'd spelled bored correctly, yo! EEEK!
  • Okay, last one. I cannot stand it when I get food from somewhere and when I get home I find out it’s either not what I ordered or it’s wrong!!!!!!! It seriously shouldn’t make me angry, but it does!
Clearly, a lot annoys me, as I could keep going. ha! I hope we’re still friends after you read these (and that I haven’t offended anyone). I’d love to know what irks you!!!!!!


  1. YES to the toilet paper. Tyler is the WORST at this. I hate it every time!

  2. I could written almost all of these myself! I knew there was a reason why we get along so well. ;)

    The whole someone ignoring me when I talk to them on social media thing- let's just say, that is EXACTLY what I was talking about the other day when I tweeted. WTH? I am wondering if it is the same person doing it to you?

    oh and the two slow people in both lanes thing- don't get me started. I drive across the Lake Ponchartrain Causeway (which is the world's longest bridge over water) every day and when there is some jerkoff driving 55 in the fast lane, I get irate. LOL

    oh, and lastly- I ordered a cobb salad from CFA the other day and I was so disappointed when I got to work and they gave me a market salad, but with the red pepper things and the lime dressing. Um, gross. LOL I emailed them and they called me and gave me a new salad for free yesterday! Score!

  3. Yes as well to the toilet paper!!! ...and I have to have it falling over and not under! lol!

    My biggest pet peeve are people who are slow to do when they take forever to get ready, get in the car, and get somewhere...and then they are constantly late...and then it takes them forever to get out of the car and get to where they need to be. Mitch used to be one of those people that "dilly dally" around...and that just did not work with me! ha! Life is much better now that he tries to keep up with my pace!!!! :-)

  4. I'm pretty certain that if I started one of these pet peeve posts, I would never stop typing! Ha! And just for the record, TP definitely goes over the top!
