My Life Monday...Pet Peeve Version

I love Rachelle's my life Monday. It gives me something to blog about. Today I get to discuss all of the things that bother me. WaHOO!!!

1. Dog owners that don't clean up after their dogs. I don't want your dogs poo on my lawn, I don't want to step in your dogs poo, and I don't want to smell it when I walk past your house.

2. Knuckle cracking. Ewwwww!

3. Strange names for children. Seriously. Give them a name they won't have to defend for the rest of their lives. Spell it normally so that they don't have to spell it for every teacher or tech support person that they ever talk too.

4. Rosie and Donald.

5. When people take your ideas and blatently pass them off as their own without giving credit where credit is due. I am guilty of this, but it still bothers me.

6. When people use the wrong form of there, they're, and their.

7. When people see you heading for a line at the grocery store or they see you waiting for a parking stall or you are merging and they rush to beat you.

8. People doing things in their cars when they think that no one is looking. Hey Mister...I can see you picking your nose!

9. People who chew with their mouths open. God gave you lips, use them!!!

10. Teenagers who think they look cool when they wear shorts and tanks in the dead middle of Winter. You don't look cool...you look stupid!

I could go on, but if I did, I wouldn't have any friends left.

Go visit Rachelle to see what bugs other people.

oh, I really hate the teenagers running around in shorts and short sleeves when its cold outside. Just the other day I was walking to my sister-in-law's house and walked passed a high school. It was about -25 C out and I was bundled up in everything, while these stupid teenagers were running around in SHORTS and no coat!

what's #5?

:o)

Stephanie said...

Fixed just for you Char. ;)

Lynanne said...

Ah yes, I nodded at all of these. Your #5 was the reason I couldnt do this one this week. I couldn't come up with any thing original :)

Nicole said...

WOW. You are on a roll sister! Do you hate when people call you sister, sorry. I won't do it again.

I second ALMOST all these. Some more than others. #5 is SO big with me. Can I not have an idea that someone doesn't copy? It drives me bonkers. I know it is the best form of flattery, blah, blah, blah!!! And then for them to pretend like THEY were the ones that thought of it? COME ON!!! See, I can really start to rant about it all, but I'll refrain.

PS, please excuse anytime I use there, their, or they're in the wrong way. I don't think that I do, but now I am nervous!

Stephanie said...

lynanne, that is why I gave Rachelle ALL of the credit! ;)

I love hearing/reading pet peeves!
I know, weird.
Talking about #10, on the raining season I'll see teens in flip flops, ewwww, gross, their toes are all muddy and yucky...sick, nothing worse than dirty feet.

Oh #1 all the way. What's up with driving around with your beloved dog hanging it's head out the window? If you love it so much... strap it into a car seat! There's just something about dog owners and how they assume that just because they love their dogs like a family member that you're supposed to accept them into your home like they're a person. (I just used there, their, and they're in a sentence... hope I used them correctly!!!) Hey people... you're dog is an animal. Leave him at home!

Tori :) said...

Ooh ooh ooh! Can I copy you??? I'll give you credit!! I could do a few posts on pet peeves. Don't get me started...

Justin said...

haha! That was humourous and very true indeed.. Its not just u, most people feel that way..

Mr. Mom said...

Amen to all of the above!

itybtyfrog said...

If you combined a few of those things together into one person you would have a really annoying individual!

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

Amen on all of it, except the Trump/Rosie thing, because I'd really like to see Trump kick her butt.

Kristen said...

I hate all those things, too.
