My 7 Biggest Pet Peeves

I’m really digging this whole get-to-know me thing at the end of each month! Not only because I get to share some random stuff about myself, but I genuinely enjoy everyone that participates with their own answers in the comments. Let’s keep it rolling this month – we’re chatting all about biggest pet peeves! Writing these out made my skin crawl.

My 7 Biggest Pet Peeves
1. Loud chewers/chewing with your mouth open/smacking your mouth while eating. Nails on a chalkboard to my ears. Don’t worry – I’m not afraid to call you out on it.

2. When someone doesn’t hold a door open when you’re right behind or a few paces back from them. This is just rude manners.

3. Being late! If I’m not 10-15 minutes early for something, I basically freak out so I don’t understand other people’s excuses.

4. Not using the turn signal while driving. Ryan thinks this is hilarious because without fail, I always sarcastically yell “NICE TURN SIGNAL!” when this happens.

5. Writing in the margins of a book and/or highlighting passages. My only exceptions are cookbooks and self-help books. Otherwise, take notes on a separate piece of paper, will ya?

6. People going out in public in pajamas. I’m not talking about athleisure wear. I mean Spongebob Square Pants-printed fleece pants and a shitty tee. It takes hardly any more effort to at least put a pair of jeans on.

7. When someone stands right in front of what you’re looking at in a store aisle. I mean, hello? Am I invisible or are you just that oblivious? Ugh.

No joke that just writing out my biggest pet peeves gave me goosies and made my arm hair stand straight up. This stuff drives me nuts! Hopefully I’m not the only one. 😉

As always, I want you to participate in this month’s get-to-know me prompt! So, leave those pet peeves of yours in the comments. Do we share any of the same ones?

    Have to admit I knew most of these about you but I learned a couple of things too – like #1 & #4! I share #7 with you, that is a big one for me!

    OMG.. I completely understand you! I’d add #8 – People that drag their feet when they walk, making a loud noise!

    Cool post!! ❤

    Hahaha, we are one in the same! I literally say, “Nice turn signal” so many times a day when I’m in the car! And I just CANNOT with loud chewers/open-mouthed chewing. CAN’T. DO. IT.

      Hahaha, I’m glad I’m not the only one with the turn signal thing – I mean, didn’t people learn how to drive properly?

    Yes to people not holding doors! I’ve seriously had more than one person let the door close right on me instead of waiting 10 seconds to hold it in the last week. I’m guilty of being the person who’s always late though.

      The door thing is just ridiculous – it takes a lot of self-control for me not to yell at people at the time for it!

    Oh my gosh I know that this will sound weird but I love this! Haha. As I have gotten older I feel like my list of pet peeves has grown. I am with you on 1,2, 3, 6 and 7. I would include #4 but I haven’t driven in like 13 years. #cityliving haha. I absolutely cannot stand when people eat/smack food with their mouth open though. SO GROSS. I also worked with someone who came into the office late every single day. This person also enjoyed pointing out peoples mistakes to our boss. I finally was like umm at least I come in on time every day. Oh and not holding the door for people is just plain rude. Especially when it is a parent with a stroller. And like who goes out in public in their pajamas?! OK, my comment/rant was long enough haha. I hope that you have a glorious day!!!

      I’m with you on things annoying me more as I get older, ha! I think I just don’t have as much patience as I did when I was younger. oh well!

    I LOVE these posts too, Karly! So fun! I literally laughed out loud with the spongebob squarepants pajama comment haha. Even when I had the flu I managed to still get dressed to go to the doctor so there’s really no excuse for people to wear their pajamas in public lol. And I can’t stand people who don’t signal. I tell my husband all the time if he’d switch jobs with me for a day that I’d pull so many people over for that lol.

    • 1.28.19

      Awe, thanks Cara! These are so fun to write, so I’m glad that you enjoy them, too. Oh my gosh, if my husband was a police officer I’d tell him to pull over everyone who didn’t use a turn signal, lol. Drives me bonkers!

    Number 2-4 are so me. I’m 100% guilty of #5 I did my first degree in English and History and then studied law – I almost feel weird NOT highlighting books and jotting down thoughts haha

    • 1.28.19

      Lol well that’s totally understandable! It just mostly bugs me with fiction novels and what not. 🙂

    I also think it’s weird when people go out in public in their pajamas. Hahah. Great list!
