Pet Peeves

Everyone has a few little things that get on their nerves and drive them nuts. Today I'm sharing mine.
I don't like feet. This started in college. My friend Jenna and I were in the lobby of a dorm talking to friends, and a guy sat down right next to us and started rubbing and picking at his bare feet. He was sitting nearer to Jenna than to me, but we were both totally repulsed. I can't remember any specific details since this was 10+ years ago, but I think he had toe jam.
Smacking food, when people chew with their mouth open, and when people talk with food in their mouth
When people cough or sneeze, and don't cover their nose or mouth. I have asthma, and I hate to get sick, so I do not want their germs. My husband thinks I am a germaphobe, I call it being careful.
 Know-it alls. This stems from a coworker I used to have named Murph. He was the authority on all subjects. I was haunted by Murph. Those of you that know me IRL know my Murph stories.
Compulsive liars. We've all known someone who will lie about even silly little things. I've always wondered why some people seem to enjoy pulling the wool over people's eyes, but I think it's like the Tootsie Pop Owl says, "The world may never know."
When you're swimming in an ocean or lake and something brushes past your leg, or even worse, bites you. I'm always convinced it's a shark or piranha.
What are your pet peeves?

  1. I like your new blog design!
    I cannot stand know-it-alls. One of the relatives on my mom's side is like that.
    One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing about how I look younger than I am. People can be surprisingly rude about it. They think it's okay to interview me about my age, when did I get married, etc. (I was raised to believe that asking a woman her age is inappropriate.) I believe any comments about a physical traits, that a person can't change, are unnecessary.

  2. Love the new blog design! I totally agree about the lake! My family had a place at Lake Gaston in NC, and towards the end of the summer, seaweed would grow really high near the dock, so fish would hang out there and try to suck on your leg or seaweed would wrap around your foot. It freaked me out so much! I was always convinced they were huge fish trying to pull me under haha!

  3. YES! The blog looks super! My biggest pet peeve is people backing into parking spots! ARGHHHH

  4. Love your new design! One of my pet peeves is when people don't proof read their emails before sending them, grrr lol
