According to Wikipedia pet peeves are just minor annoyances that a person perceives as much more annoying than others (find it here). I suppose that is right. I mean not everyone gets aggravated about an empty toilet paper roll. Though, I do think everyone has something that bothers them. Maybe it's a sound, or a gesture, maybe it's grammar (avoid my blog if it is, my grammar is sad), maybe it is spelling, or a song, a noise someone makes, an action someone takes, ect. Whatever the peeve is it get's you riled. Your jaw clenches, your fists might, too, your eye twitches, that vein in your forehead starts showing, maybe you have to just say something!
Ah, yes, the witty way of letting someone know they have activated your pet peeve response system.
Truly the list of pet peeves is highly extensive, I know because I Googled it. I picked one result because lets face it, there are five little monsters in my house, and I can't read all the lists! GetAnnoyed has rather long list of pet peeves. Some of them make me laugh a lot. I am probably guilty of them. Others I agree with completely! And for some of them I am reminded of Monica from Friends. She would cry if I was in her home. I never use coasters (unless we are at my husband's family's house). My children tend to just toss their shoes down where ever they take them off (ok that one bugs me!). I'm sure I do plenty that aggravates my husband.
My pet peeves aren't so crazy. I hate when people don't replace toilet paper, obviously. I also can't stand the toilet paper being on wrong, it goes over, not under! I cannot deal with someone constantly tapping, whether it is their foot or their hand. I about lose it when someone chews with their mouth open. Nails on anything, metal against metal, grinding teeth, all those make me shudder. People who don't flush the toilet, and also the ones who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. Gross! I'm sure I have more. If I let this post sit a few days I could add more. Oh well, I'm going with these.
So what are your pet peeves? Leave them in the comments!
