Default Pet Peeves

So, I don't think there's a thread like this, but there should be...

Do you have any pet peeves? Things that just piss you off easily without good reason?

For example, I get really annoyed when people try to text me when they're drunk and can't spell anything and I have no way of deciphering what they're trying to say. I'm likely to be very mean to them when this happens...


I have others... but I'll get to those later.

I'm trying to stay positive. I'm trying to focus on the GOOD in humanity.

BUT... talking to me 3" from my face. Get out of my bubble. No, don't pat my arm. Do NOT hug me. Just...back away... I do not look huggable. So...just don't. Please.

There's a woman at work that I let get away with that. Simply because I do like her, and there's really no polite way left to say "TINA!! TOO CLOSE!! OMG GETTHEFUCKAWAY!!". I don't want to hurt her feelings, lol. I've tried backing up (i've backed into walls, literally). I've tried turning my face away. I've even noticeably stiffened when she hugs. Which she does. Every day. BECAUSE SHE'S SO EXCITED TO SEE ME!

Having my hair touched. I hate people coming up to me, playing with my hair, and going "ohhh you dyed it!" It's like, you didn't think I knew that haha?

And I hate sitting down on a warm seat after someone else has sat there. It weirds me out.

When "I'll do it in a minute" turns into "I'll do it in an hour....or 4".

People picking at their teeth in front of you, with the sharp ends on pens and stuff. Gah. I have a weird thing about teeth.

I hate it when people use "literally", when they don't mean it. For instance: "It was so funny that I literally pissed myself laughing".

Now, I'm pretty sure that's not true. You mean PRACTICALLY people, practically!

Hah!

I hate how no one ever wants to talk to me unless I'm reading/listening to music/otherwise involved in the terlet.

It's like they have this magical sense "Mom/Trae's busy! Let's go have a conversation/ask for something!"

"Mom...mom...moooooooooooooooom"

"WHAT"

"I forgot."

My bf and I call each other Porky and Stinky. Don't ask, it's not as cutesy as it sounds. Anyway -

"Hey Stinky"

"Hm"

"Put the book down, I need to ask you something"

"*dramatic sigh* WHAT"

"Where's my flip flops?"

"...*raises book back up*"

Double post, please forgive me.

Words. Most of the people I know were raised using the English language. It has come to my attention that 90% of those people butcher it. Yes, some words are derived from other languages. Fine. Learn how to say them. I know more people that speak English as a second language that have finer language skills than the nimrods who were raised speaking it.

Coupon. Not cue-pon. COO-PON

Suffocating. It is not suffer-cating, although it does make some sense.

Behaving. You cannot ask my children if they are "being hayv". You ask them if they are "behaving". Either way, the answer is still probably "no".

Frustrating. It's frustrating when someone says "flustrating" or "fustrating".

Chipotle. lol. This is a new one. My girlfriends at work BOTH say it "Chih-polty". Yet they pronounce the restaurant name as Chipotle. I don't get it.

I used to be an ass about it. Laugh and correct them. That doesn't endear you to too many people. Now I just use it in a sentence after them.

"Oh, I don't use COOpons anymore."

or "Yeah, that is really FRUSTrating. I agree"

So far, the passive-aggressive approach hasn't worked either.

SPEAK PROPERLY.

People who get pissed off by failing to cheer me up, which in turn, PISSES ME OFF. Don't fuckin' worry about me. If YOU'RE happy, I'M happy...whether it shows on the outside or not.
