peeves…everyone’s got ’em

howdy folks. now, i don’t generally like to be posting about negative stuff, but i think people’s peeves are so damn funny. i love hearing what weird things bother people.

so i figured i’d list some of mine. read on for some things that just really get me.

-when people breathe on me in the subway.

-misused quotation marks. this makes me physically ill.

you can find more annoying misused quotation marks here

-passive aggressiveness. it’s just unnecessary. see some amazing examples of this HERE.

-someone mumbles something, and when you ask them to repeat it, they say “nevermind.”

-when someone does a favor for you and then verbally announces their expectation that you to return it (especially in a passive aggressive fashion). “well, I just figured that since I helped you get that job a couple months ago, it wouldn’t be a problem for you to babysit my dog for the weekend.”

-when people act like their opinions are stone cold facts (although admittedly I do this sometimes).

-when people remind you a million times about a mistake you made in the past. i mean, the only reason to do this is to make someone feel bad. just let it go. i KNOW i broke the damn binding machine. but it’s fixed now.

-when i see a woman’s boyfriend/husband carrying her purse for her.

-when people scrape their teeth on their forks.

-when the subway doors open and nobody moves at all, acting like there isnt any room when there clearly would be if they took 2 steps in.

-when i’m watching an especially riviting scene of a movie or show and someone walks in and starts talking to me really loudly without warning and i miss the scene.

-condescending people/words/actions.

-being on speakerphone

-having to speak to an automated response on the phone

-biting tin foil

haha, it seems i had more off the bat than i thought. i’m sure i’ll continute to update this. i would really love to hear other people’s so bring ’em on! funny ones especially. for instance, i have a friend who can’t touch cotton balls. i heard recently of someone who hates the feel of red clay pots. ya know. stuff like that.

    Styrofoam, Superman logo tattos (except on Shaq), the movie grease, the band Creed, the word “panties” and having to fake laughter at work

    i mumble and say ‘nevermind’ when i am purposely trying to piss someone off. works like a charm.

    I can’t stand when you hold the elevator for someone and you come to find out that they are taking it to the 2nd floor. Augh! Learn to walk a flight of stairs people!

    Oooh, styrofoam does suck. and people who “shhh” when it’s not appropriate. and people who insist on walking 3 steps ahead of you (just rude! I’m sorry I have short legs and sometimes I feel like not running), or people who walk so close to you that they step on your heels (for some reason, I swear this happens to me all the time), hypocrisy, and relatedly, people who say they “hate drama,” as this assures that they, in fact, create drama everywhere.
