Just out of curiosity… What is your pet peeve? What makes you crazier than crazy? What boils your blood and makes you stand up and say, “Hey! That is…” fill in the blank.
I’ve discovered I have a couple of things. One is if I see someone kick a dog. Oh man, you do not want to kick a dog if I am in the vicinity, because I will go bat-sh*t crazy on you. My most common response (since it’s happened a couple of times) is, “Hey! How would you like it if someone five times YOUR size kicked YOU?” Or ten times or how ever many times bigger that person is than their pet. Aargh… it really burns me. But, okay, that’s not even my topic for today.
The other thing that chaps my ass (excuse my French) is when I’m at any one of my daughter’s game and opposing parents trash talk the girls on my daughter’s team. Really? Do you really feel the need to scream at a young girl and tell her she needs a hug? Or tell her she’s a meanie? Or any number of words that I can’t repeat here? How would you feel if I did that to your kid? Not very happy, I would think.
I really, honestly don’t get some people sometimes. Is there anyone out there who tries to put themselves in other people’s shoes before they mouth off? Do people ever try to see the whole picture or the other side of the story before they say or do something completely and totally ass backwards/wrong?
Is it ADD? Is it the lack of attention span that makes people act without thinking? Was it never taught? Or is it a lack of brain cells? There are so many choices…all of them terrible excuses for bad behavior.
Tell me, what’s your pet peeve?
