Random Rant…..Pet Peeves!

Pet peeves

Pet Peeve 1 #

One of my biggest Pet Peeves are parents who allow their children to come out the house looking any old type of way. I was at Blaze Pizza by my house for lunch the other day, and saw this woman come in to get food with her (what looked like) six or seven year old child.  The mother was dressed fairly decent, and looked clean hair done, and put together.  The child looked a mess, and her hair was not combed.

The child had leggings on with a short waist length pink jacket that didn’t look clean.  She had gym shoes on with no socks, and mind you its about 45 degrees still here in Chicago. Her hair was in two ponytails not combed, flying everywhere and looked like it hadn’t seen a brush all weekend. What hurt my heart is whether that’s your child or not, why not take the time to comb her hair, and put socks on her?  Just this alone would make a big difference. Yes we could look at the situation and say, well that may not be her child, but so what??? Tell the mother or who ever child that is to comb her hair and put socks on her before you babysit.  Or, how about has the caregiver, you take initiative. It grinds my nerves to see stuff like that.

You ever had the annoying co worker who is too nice that its not authentic?  They really went to be cool with you so they can get in your business? I do! I like authentic people, and people that respect your privacy and business.  Typically when someone is too nice……always wonder why…..there’s genuinely nice people, and those that use kindness to be malicious.  Sometimes they don’t even know they are being malicious, but there need to be first or right or the best makes them do certain things. SNEAKY! I hate sneaky lol.  Don’t get me wrong, I think majority of people are genuinely nice and don’t have bad intents, but, in this day in age you have to keep your eyes open.  Especially in a competitive place such as the work place. 

Pet Peeve # 3

Your walking down the street on the side walk or a aisle in the grocery store and they refuse to move over, or let you by.  They look at you like they own the walk way and you should step aside.  Its almost appalling that they would expect you to even assume they would move.  I hate that.  Its like if we see each other coming, lets make room so we can both maneuver.  I see this all the time walking to the train heading for work.  If your from Chicago and take the Metra train you know oh so well folks will run you over to get to and from the train.  Its like a herd of cattle.

The co worker who thinks they are in a world of their own and hums to themselves, loudly!  Thats annoying, I am trying to do my work especially in a quiet office environment, and you want to hum or sing to yourself as if your Michael Jackson.  I had this happen last week, my co worker who sits in the cube across from me was humming to herself for like an hour straight, off and on, I looked back at her like WTF.  Luckily she stopped after a while and I didn’t have to say anything but that was getting on my nerves.

Pet Peeve # 5

People who do not cover their mouth when they cough! Like ewwwww. I don’t want to be sick….sorry you are. Cover your mouth or go hibernate so I don’t catch your germs.  My husband which I love dearly likes to cough and for some reason the hand barley makes it too his mouth. I want to share your last name, not your germs! He is like a baby when he is sick, he just lets it FLY. If you sick, and cant cover your cough in time, I will gladly sleep on the sofa for those few days LOL.


This may sound like I am ranting but lets be honest, everyone has small things that erkk our nerves that we tolerate. LOL

What are your Pet Peeve! Thank you for Reading!

  1. People who want to do their “catching up” while blocking a grocery aisle of a local Walmart and see you coming but expect YOU to either wait until they’re finished or to go around via the next aisle even after you’ve asked them politely to get by.

  2. Good ones. But, I will say that parents that have girls tend to have a harder time because children want to be independent and they want to dress themselves. It’s easier to let them get out the house without fighting over their wardrobe at that age. I have a boy so I don’t have to worry about that, but children are trying to be independent and doing their own hair and dressing themselves so mom was probably like “Oh well, you don’t want to wear socks? Cool. Let’s go.”
