I have several peeves. Some things bother me. I don't let it ruin my day, but I do notice a lot of what goes on. I talk to my DH about it....he generally feels the same way. Here are just a few things that truly bother me. No, they are nothing life altering (in most cases), just piddly crap that irritates the snot outta me.
I don't like it when people cut across a parking lot - cutting across spaces and/or diagonally to get from one side to another. It's just flat dangerous. I have had to slam on my brake on more than one occasion to keep from being plowed into by the driving moron.
It irks me when people pass me on the highway, only to slow down for me to catch up. There is a thing called "cruise control." I use it...so I know it's not me that suffers from "CSV: Chronic Speed Variance."
I hate it when someone reads over my shoulder....this includes my dear hubby. I love him to death, but I almost feel a pressure on my shoulder if he does this. (I think it is funny to him as sometimes he does it just to see me flap him away. :-/ )
I am really bugged when people stop just outside of a door to pass out whatever to whomever (usually their kids.) KEEP IT MOVING PEOPLE! Just move 3 giant steps to the side and you are out of every one's (read MY) way. THANK YOU!
Don't rush me when I'm placing an order in a drive through. I have a nice-sized family. I have a lot of food to order. When I order my first Happy Meal, don't ask, "Will this complete your order?" When you ask, you have usually interrupted my next item...at that point, I must stop and say, "No. Did you get the last thing I said?" Then, I usually have to repeat not only the last thing mentioned, but the first. *sigh* Wait for my silence. It follows the conclusion of my order.
SMILE! There are a few ladies I know who never seem to smile. I honestly think it would hurt them, physically, to do so. I am not saying that you should walk around with a goofy grin on your face all the time, but for goodness sake.....one's appearance is a lot nicer when your lips are upturned....not to mention the fact that your wrinkles will be less if you don't scowl all the time.
OK...that is all for today.
So, Kids...what you can take away from this is to mind the traffic rules, smile and don't interrupt.
