Pet Peeves - an Opportunity for Complaint That is Seldom Missed

Day 7 - Your Pet Peeves -

I don't have any pet peeves so this blog is going to be really boring.

Just kidding!  Of course I have pet peeves.  I have a lot of them.  Weird things like blue food, it's disgusting, there is no food or drink on the planet that should be blue.  It's just gross. Blue Raspberry stuff is the worst. Raspberries AREN'T blue.  Why does raspberry flavored stuff have to be? I love raspberries but since I refuse to eat anything blue I don't ever get to have raspberry flavored things.

I also really hate it when people leave their dishes in the sink when the dishwasher is dirty.  Are your arms broken? Nope, didn't think so.  Rinse your plate and put it in the dishwasher. It's. Just. Not. That. Hard.

When people put things in my face.  It's a bubble thing.  I can't see anything if it's within 8 inches of my face (I could if I would get over myself and wear my glasses, but my vanity is a different post) and if I can't see it and it's in my bubble it's a problem.  Respect the bubble people.

Bathroom stalls with no purse hook.  What do you do with your purse when there is no purse hook?  Leave it on your shoulder and shift it around while you pee, wipe and pull up your pants.  It's stupid and inconvenient.

Crooked pictures make me crazy.  Especially in public.  Fix that.  Get a level.  I have been know to straighten pictures, and not just in public.

Grammatical errors are also a pet peeve.  You saw something, you didn't seen it.  You don't got something, you have something.  Let's not even talk about they're, their and there or you're and your.

Of course I have serious pet peeves too.  Lack of communication is a HUGE one.  We live in a society where people have multiple options when it comes to communicating.  E-mail, text, voicemail, phone, facebook message, just to name a few.  It's not like the only way to communicate is via letter or smoke signal.  I understand that lives are busy.  Hell, I even forget to communicate my plans some days. However, constant lack of communication is just ridiculous.

Lack of communication leads straight in to my pet peeve of lack of planning.  I'm a planner.  It's what I do. I will start planning a year in advance for something.  I make lists to help me plan.  So, not planning doesn't make sense.

Oh, you want to hang out?  When?  You don't know?  Why not?

It's your birthday? Great, what are you doing?  You're going to figure it later?  WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU'LL FIGURE IT OUT LATER?!?!?

I understand that there are certain situations where spontaneity is required and other situations where circumstances make it so that you are unable to plan.  I, however, am never going to not make a plan if I have the opportunity.

Oh yeah, then there is the cold.  I'm pretty sure I never miss the opportunity to complain when I'm cold or when it's cold outside.

That being said, I think I'll go make a list. I'm sure I have something to plan.
