Pet Peeves


Hey ladies! 

What are your pet peeves?  What are the weird quirky stuff you really hate? 

For me, I absolutely cannot stand if bathroom doors are left open.  No joke.  If my husband habitually left the bathroom door open, that's pretty much grounds for divorce.  I was once on the train travelling first class coming home another Province and my seat was beside the bathroom.  The train bathrooms for some stupid reason have to be open at all times.  I got off the train and was completely fine buying another ticket to get on another train if they didn't change my seat.  They thankfully did change my seat, but that wasn't an idle threat; I literally got off the train and assured the apologetic attendant that it's not her fault, I just can't spend X-hours sitting beside an open bathroom.  Oh and I HATE when people go to the bathroom barefoot *shudder*.  

My friends are convinced my bathroom phobia is totally mental.  Am I weird?  What are yours?

I have a few.

My boyfriend constantly laughs at me, and says that I develop new pet peeves by the day!

Here's my list:

1) Table Manners - Everything from chewing with your mouth open, talking with a full mouth, not using your knife properly, slurping soup, etc. I can't stand it, haha.

2) Behaviours - Obnoxious people. Rude people. Swearing in public. Spitting. Speaking louder than others just to be heard. Interrupting. Arrogant attitudes, etc.

3) Unmade Beds - I cannot stand having an unmade bed! I just find it pretty gross.

That's all for now. I don't want to scare anyone away!

2 Major Peeves!

I definitely think my number one pet peeve is people who walk slowly. On the street, in malls, doesn't matter, I avoid them like the plague. It drives me crazy!

Also I cannot stand when people don't do things for themselves. I know that it sounds a bit rude but princess-y and prissy types REALLY bother me. Or when a friend texts me to find THEM directions- they immediately get a reply saying that they too have a smart phone and they can also look it up.

@Becky haha It's funny because I do not have any weird bathroom issues at all but I totally get why others do, I have a friend who always flushes with the seat down and I don't because I don't find it weird and they got really mad hahaha

city girl

Being from new york, I can't stand people who walk slow (and refuse to get out ofvthe way) and people that take a year to say what can be said in three minutes. A secret for you girls, when I feel like my husband is going to tell a story I sit down knowing it will take all night long. I also hate when people don't wash their hands after using the bathroom and (most of all) not covering their mouth when they sneeze/cough its like I see germs dispurse. I have more but like the other young lady, I don't want to look like a complete weirdo..

I have to add another one..

Drivers who aren't paying attention to driving! Not necessarily slow, but just distracting.

Sound off!

When I saw the title of this Posting I just had to respond lol. I've always thought that several of my pet peeves were quirky. I can NOT stand when peple eat over the phone! I really despise repeating myself (eventhough Im guilty of making others do it at times!) I hate when people say "liberry" instead of library. Chipped nail polish!!

@alexjc: girl you should always flush with the cover down!!!! Did you know that flushing causes toilet water to spray in a 6ft radius!? That's your mess mixed with water getting sprayed all over your toothbrush and towels!!! YUCK!!! Oh man please add that to my list of pet peeves too lol

*shudder* .. oh God .. this bathroom thing is more of a phobia than a mere pet peeve for me

Girls I hate when people STAND on the LEFT side of the escalator! I mean hello!? Stand on the RIGHT, walk on the left ppl!!! So annoying! And yes I also really dislike when people walk slow. Especially if its crowded 'cuz I can't even overtake them.

Okay ... I have more but I don't want to freak you all out :-)

Uh oh.

What if I agree with pretty much all of these? What does that make me??

But I have to say that this one from katelynrose1984 is pretty much the worst. This has bugged me my whole life even as a little kid. Please, please close your mouth when chewing!

1) Table Manners - Everything from chewing with your mouth open,
talking with a full mouth, not using your knife properly, slurping soup,
etc. I can't stand it, haha.

Thank you Becky, I have just now added something to my list of things to freak out about (flushing with the seat down). lol
Ali, I don't think by you having an issue with all our quirks it makes you odd, rather extremely attentive if that's the word. I'm impatient and quite OCD so anything with germs worries me.

I have a lot

JI have a lot of pet peeves but to name a few: people who talk with their mouths open, people who cut me off and cant stop talking. People who dont say "good morning" when you make eye contact even if you dont know them, its polite. People who take hours to reply and dont know how to text properly because they are lazy and never been to english class. lol just a few of many.

So with the slow walkers! I'm a super-fast walker always, and when people are just shuffling around in front of me drives me crazy!!
I also can't stand when people don't pick up their feet when they walk! Girls in Uggs-type boots are the WORST for this I find...they kind of just slosh around like they're cross-country skiing. Drives me mad.

(and also thanks for the toilet seat thing...will be doing this from now on!)
