Pet peeve is such a strange term, since it has nothing to do with pets. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary it is defined as something that a particular person finds especially annoying. I consider myself a pretty laid back person, for the most part I don’t let a lot of things bother me. However there are a couple of things that I find especially annoying.
Yesterday I went to the grocery store for only a few items. I walked in the door and grab a basket, not a cart, because I was only getting a few items, right? Well like most visits to the grocery store, I over filled my basket with more stuff than I really needed. So I struggled to the check out with an overfilled, heavy basket. The lines were long, which was okay, I picked a line and stood there. As I got closer to the checkout, the woman in front of me put her groceries on the belt, while the person in front of her paid. I was able to set my heavy basket down on the edge of the belt but I could not unload my groceries onto the belt because she did not lay down a divider! I could not reach for one unless I invaded her personal space and reached over all her groceries. As we stood their, she could clearly see that I was waiting for a divider to unload my groceries. Come on people how hard is it to have the courtesy to put a divider behind your groceries, so the next person can start unloading their groceries!
Another thing that is especially annoying to me is when someone ask you, ‘Did you know that you have a huge pimple on your face?’ I feel saying in the most sarcastic tone possible, No I forgot to look in the mirror today and I didn’t feel the giant red crater on my face but thank you for drawing attention to it! Just a Public Service Announcement to everyone out there, if someone has a giant pimple on there face, THEY KNOW ITS THERE, you don’t have to tell them. Unfortunately my husband and kids are guilty of doing this to me because they have no filter. I am sure they have the best intentions but it still drives me crazy.
