Pet Peeves

A pet peeve is a minor annoyance that can instill great frustration in a very small group of people, yet is experienced by everyone. I’ve listed a few of mine, they aren’t enough to change Bruce Banner into his alter ego but they sure do get under my skin.

  1. Street boys and junkies. “No, Don’t Wipe It!” How many times have you screamed that to windscreen wipers at stoplights and intersections in the corporate area? I’m becoming less tolerable of these junior extortionists who insist on spraying soapy water all over my windscreen and then charging me for a service that I didn’t ask for. I’m just as annoyed by persons who wash your car without asking during the fifteen minutes you spent in the KFC and then demand money.
  2. People who spend “forever” in ABM machines. You don’t need five minutes, even if your PIN is twenty characters long.
  3. People who wait until they’re in front of the cashier at fast food restaurants before they look up at the menu board to decide what combo they want. Why didn’t you decide while you were waiting in line?
  4. Tattoos on breasts. Why would you deface works of art? That’s like drawing a mouthstache on the Mona Lisa. Ever considered a hickey?
  5. Unsolicited text messages from my mobile carrier. LIME, I’m not interested in subscribing for your silly Blingback tunes! 

What are your pet peeves?

My pet peeve is a little more close to home - even though I totally share the same sentiments as those you described. I don't like when people show up at my house unannounced. Please give me a moment to make myself decent! Its a small pet peeve but its mine.

What about complainers? They suck. Or the people who can formulate 27 reasons why a task can't be done? Sometimes I wonder if there are any positive individuals left in the world.

Only persons with a key can turn up unannounced at mi casa. Whiners and negative people are more than a minor annoyance to me too LL.

I share the same sentiments!
The people who choose to use their energy to make excuses instead of doing something productive probably get on my nerves the most though.
And yeh, fiyah pon a surprise visit!!
Homie don't play dat!

Men who don't stand up when they need to, bicycle and bike men on the road, Honda drivers and most of all people who don't listen...everything else is a fleeting annoyance.

1- Police at month end

2- When you ask someone who is a picky eater what they want to eat and they say they don't care whatever you want. It's obvious I'm asking you for a reason, now stop to think for two seconds and suggest something so when I go to BK I don't hear you don't eat it and you sit there staring in my face the whole time.

Townecrier, looks like that "picky eater" peeve really hit a nerve.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content
seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
Thanks
