INTERROGATION - You asked, now I'm answering (Part 3)

Don't worry, I didn't forget about the questions you asked...I just took a bit of a blogging break over the weekend. I'm back & I'm fully prepared to answer a question from Trent Family Life:

What are your biggest pet peeves?

Oh, boy...where do I even begin?!
  • Chewing with your mouth open - I cannot stand to hear "mouth noises" while people eat. I understand that something might be lip-smackin' yummy, but keep the noises to yourself, please.
  • Pen clicking - I've worked with & worked for more than one person who is guilty of this {my husband included!}...is it really necessary to "click" your pen during a staff meeting? That noise drives me up the wall!
  • Not saying "excuse me" - this has happened to me more than once & it just gets under my skin...don't walk up behind someone and expect them to just move out of your way. Say "excuse me" and see what kind of a response you'll get. I swear, women with carts full of groceries in Super Wal-Mart are the WORST offenders...not including myself, of course!
  • Not refilling the T.P. or the paper towels - I suppose finding an empty paper towel roll doesn't bother me NEARLY as much as finding out that there's no toilet paper left on the roll. It seems to me that it would be common sense to replace the empty T.P. roll with a new roll...especially if you used the last bit of it, but things don't always work that way...

I'm sure I could go on and on, but we'll keep the answer to four things. I don't want to make myself seem too petty.

I'll answer questions 4 & 5 tomorrow, but in the meantime, why don't you tell me what YOUR pet peeves are?

I am definitely with you on not refilling the T.P. That one gets to me!

I also do not like it when people "zing" with a fork or utensil. It is like they bite down on it and rip it out of their mouth. The noise drives me nuts!

I agree with the 'excuse me'! There are so many people who just plow through. What I find very strange though is when I say 'excuse me', people look at me like I'm from a different planet.

I am so with you on the chewing with your mouth open - I cannot stand it. I think I actually start to twitch!

My other peeve is people standing directly in front of the elevator door and then pushing to get on while you're trying to get off. That, and getting in the elevator and then looking right at you as you rush to get to the doors as the person in side either a) lets it shut or b) pushing "Close" with such force to get it to shut before you get there! Those are probably my biggest peeves!
