NWR: Name your pet peeves

Thought it might be fun or nice way to vent - what are some of your pet peeves?

    I am lucky that in California that they always provide toilet seat covers in public bathrooms (weird, they don't do that in Philly), but my pet peeve is when the shape of the cover in no way covers all the toilet seat, so you have to use 2 or something like that. And also when a breeze or an accidental rip just sends them sailing into the toilet, and it's just a waste of paper.  I don't know why it bothers me that it's a waste of paper; if I was a true environmentalist, I wouldn't want public bathrooms to have those at all!

    LOL Jen! That's funny.I HATE picky eaters, it's such a 1st world country thing to be. There are millions of people starving in the world and yet I have guests who refuse to touch food (FFIL, I'm looking at you) that has come in contact with tomatoes or peppers or mushrooms. I find the whole concept really repulsive.I think they irritate me even more because I used to be a picky eater, until I realized that if I just sucked it up and kept eating something I wouldn't hate it anymore. Living in Japan had a lot to do with it, I think. My first night there, my BOE took me out for a party where they served BBQ cow tongue. I realized then that I was going to have to make a choice between insulting my hosts or sucking up my dislikes.

    1. Women who wear make up to the gym, it makes me want to go wash my own face.2. When people try to have a conversation with me while I am breathing hecka hard on a treadmill or cardio machine. I think it's just rude. You see the sweat dripping off my forehead or that I am gonna have an asthma attack just to utter the words hi. 3. My biggest pet peeve is when people wear sunglasses in the nightclub. Who are you P.diddy? There is no sun in here?!?

    Kaesha- Did you enjoy the cow tongue? My 1st experience eating cow tongue was in 3rd grade. I stared at it for about 5  mins before eating it. I will eat or try almost anything at least once especially while travelong, I never want to offend anyone.

    The first time I had it, no. But I ate several pieces anyway. By the end of my time in Japan, I'd ordered it several times in restaurants. The only thing I couldn't do was eat shishamo - I cannot bring myself to eat anything where I'm required to eat the head as well.

    now i'm sad.  Kaesha wouldn't be friends with me IRL.   I have issues with mayonaise, and other creamy sauces.  I can't stand people who are late.   I find it to be rude and inconsideate.  Mainly i just don't like rude people.

    1. Bad drivers 2. Chronically Late People (the ultimate form of self-centeredness, I think) 3. The misuse of the word "nauseous." If you are nauseous, you are making other people ill....putting forth nausea, so to speak. If you yourself are feeling ill, the correct word would be "nauseated." :)

    Leah - way to rock the grammer!MrsHow - we'd be friends - I'd probably just make faces behind your back. =PSeriously, I have a friend who won't eat any fruits or veg that are cooked or any meat that comes on bones, doesn't like dairy or pork (except in bacon form) and claims she's allergic to sugar, even though she eats it all the time. THAT drives me nuts.

    People who are totally contradictory in their actions.  I had a deputy chief in my office complain to me about a coworker about how incompetent she is, when he was the one who referred her for the job!!!! Garrrrrrrrrghhhhhh!!Also guys who shave designs into their hair, SO not word to your mother.

    1. People who are late, all the time. I have one friend who is almost always 3-5 min late, and late to me..is right one time. I always arrive 5-10-15 min early. =)2. People who are just rude for no reason, when they havent even met you. I hate it.3. People who talk to me when I am trying to focus on something. It distracts me so much!

    People who annoy me!  And there are a lot.  But most of all:1. People who are arrogant when they have no reason to be2. People who think they're always right and feel that only their opinion matters3. People who repeatedly flake on plans at the last minuteOh, and if I get anyone who RSVP's yes to the wedding and don't show up, I'm going to end the friendship.  Seriously. :)
