It is amazing to me the little things that can drive me nuts when I am around people. Things that are normal behaviors, not just of over the top self centered kind of stuff. There are times that I find the very things that I like about a person can at other times drive me nuts!
leaving drawers and cupboard doors open
throwing things in a pile and not trying to find a place for it
trivia at times
waiting in line, waiting for people to be ready, waiting for appointments
excuses -just say that your late, or that you couldn’t possible get up on time not things like my dog got sprayed by a skunk or I had to buy you flowers on the way to work. Yes I have heard both and both were true statements.
technology bogging down or crashing
people who don’t drive like me
taking advantage of a position of power or authority to get what you want
manipulation of all types
talking over me
playing your technology loudly over mine
taking the last of something and not letting others know
I guess it boils down to three things my grandma used to say :
1. If you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all
2. Treat others as you well as you would like to be treated (or better for those with poor self esteem)
3. Take a deep breath, count to ten and walk away if needed
Lets laugh at this because we all do things that drive other human beings nuts. What are some of your pet peeves?
Crap, why is my phone and laptop doing updates again!!!
One of my pet peeves is going to a restaurant that has a TV going and nobody is watching it. It’s just making noise and distracting people but nobody really wants to watch it. I don’t know whose idea that was in the first place, but it seems to be catching on everywhere.
