Pet Peeves

Today I'm sharing some of my pet peeves with you, in hopes that you'll share some of yours with me (or relate to some of these).
{via}
~when ambulance or police vehicles put on their lights and sirens when in traffic, and then turn them off once they get through it. Sorry, that's not an emergency and that's not what those are for.
{via}
~when you go to a restaurant that specializes in something (like a burger joint) and they've run out of one of the staple things they tout. For instance, I went to Chipotle a way's back and they had ran out of chicken and steak. Um...that's kind of two of the main ingredients in most of your dishes. Who dropped the ball on that order?

~speaking of Chipotle...when people say it Chip-ole-tee. The 't' comes before the 'lay'. "Chip-oh-t-lay". Public Service Announcement complete.

~when Cooper barks randomly out of nowhere, scaring the living daylights out of me. Even moreso when I'm home alone and the barking makes me think someone's outside trying to break in and murder me.
{via} no, that's not Cooper, but it looks like him doesn't it?
~when people don't show up when they say they're going to. Or when someone cancels plans super last minute, leaving you hanging.
{via}
~when people don't properly shut/roll up bags of things like chips or pretzels so they don't go stale. One fold over doesn't keep the air out. I'm glad you got what you wanted out of the bag, but the rest of us would like it to taste just as fresh when we go for some, too.

~when people are overly competitive, ruining a simple fun and friendly game for everyone because they're taking it too seriously. For instance, getting mad when playing Cards Against Humanity? (yes, this actually happened once). I'm all for being competitive, but there's a time and a place for it. 
{via}
~when appetizers come in odd numbers. Most of the time you're out with one other person, or 4 total. Why do so many apps come in 3's, making it awkward to figure out how to share 3 things among 2 or 4 people?

Do any of these things bother you, too? What are some of your pet peeves?

  1. lol so true about appetizer portions...they should really think that out better. The same thing happens to me when Lola lets out a random unexpected bark...It makes me jump out of my seat!

  3. Bahahaha laughing about so many of these because I couldn't agree more! The mispronunciation of Chipotle - yes!!!! I have a co-worker who always says it backwards and it's almost painful to listen to him talk about it! And once when I was there, there were out of rice and said it would be like, 15 minutes, before they had more. At 6pm. Seriously?! Love this post and it reminds me that I started (but never finished) a similar one way back last winter!

  4. Oh yes the odd number app! So darn annoying! And yes its Chi-po-t-lay!! And Chloe does the same random bark thing or Sophoe growls which scrams more.

  5. pet peeves: people who talk to much, bad drivers, people who can't park properly or are slow ass drivers, people who say they're going to do something but never do it, people who ask for advice but then fight you on them (THEN DON'T ASK!), people who are flaky....oh, i have a lot of pet peeves LOL

  6. The appetizer thing had me laughing - too funny:) And ugh - people who don't close up chip/snack bags or who return bottles to the fridge with just a sip left in them? HOW RUDE! (Said like Stephanie Tanner:)

    The teacher in me also can't stand when people spell peek as "peak." (Though I'm sure I've probably slipped up on this myself). I consistently see the same people spelling it wrong and it makes me ragey for some reason. You are not on a mountain top. Nope. You just want to give me a sneak peek of something you are buying, making, touting. Get it straight. Ha!

  8. LOL I hate the Chipotle thing too!! One of my friends says it the wrong way and it drives me INSANE! I hope you guys are having fun!

  9. YES ABOUT THE APPETIZERS. I don't understand!!

  10. Yes on the super competitive people during board games... I've had friends get downright mad and it's just silliness. I think all appetizers should just come on big platters... like give me a dozen or two, ya know???

  11. Oh, the Chipotle one! Irritates me to no end. And no matter how many times I say it the right way around them, it's still "chip-o-tay". Uh. no. Also the bag rolling up/down thing. If only it was always done right, cereal and chips would stay a lot fresher a lot longer in our house! ;)

  12. I can't stand when people don't show up when they say they will or cancel on you last minute.

    Your story of Cooper barking randomly made me totally relate to when I was younger like 12-13 and my dog would randomly bark and if I was home alone, I would get so scared that someone was in the yard or trying to break in.

    It also reminded me of this story: My cat randomly jumped on my bed and on me one night a few years ago, which he never does. Of course the night he decides to do so, I was having a nightmare that someone came in my room to try and kidnap me. I screamed so loud when he scared me that I ended up scaring him.

  14. oh my gosh, the bag thing - KC will regularly get a bowl of my cereal and not do the bag up properly and it drives me freaking bonkers. also, when people are late, that's just plain rude. i don't have patience for that!

  15. Oh girl- where do I begin? Pet peeves: Tardiness. Poor customer service. Stupid policies. For example, the post office didn't give me a tiny piece of tape today (they only sell it; they can't provide it) even after I purchased an envelope FROM THEM that did not have a strong enough seal. Not my fault they had an inferior product!! LOL
