My pet peave is personal - when I realize/notice I'm doing something that cheeses me off when someone else does it


I also hate being late for things.

Re: Pet peaves

Being late for anything drives me crazy. And being right on time just means im all ready 15 minutes late.

Re: Pet peaves

I got a new one


For some reason it irritates me a lot when clerks/cashiers say "Have a good one."


I've tried figuring out why it bothers me so much ... "have a good day" doesn't, and its not a phrase that can be deliberatly misconstrued like "Thank you and come again."

(Teen guys in the drive thru at "Golden Arches" had all kinds of fun with that and the manager didn't "get it" and would get angry with girls not wanting to use that phrase.)

Just another sign that society is getting very casual and loosing some of our good manners. It's fine to say that to a friend but not very professional in the workplace when speaking to a customer.

And when did it become okay to leave the house in the morning in your pajamas??!! I really dislike seeing that. It just looks sloppy.

Re: Pet peaves

What bothers me most is when clerks say, "Just this?"

Why do they say that??!!

What do they say when a person checks out with an overflowing cart??

"Will that be all??"

Thankfully my dad has a sense of humor and told me that it was a good thing cows don't fly as he had one pooping on his lawn on a regular basis.

He finally bought some fox pee and placed it all over his front lawn. Then the dog started pooping on his sidewalk.

My dad caught the culprit owner one day, got smart; and decided that since he had to clean it up anyway..started a poop bag where he accumulated all this individual's dog's poop. Didn't take long for that poop bag to fill up and that's where it get's hilarious.

Learning where this person lived from all the other complaining neighbors with big dog poops on their properties also, one neighbor learned where this individual lived and took 4 big poop bags and emptied them right in front of this individuals front door in the middle of the night!!

The individual must walk their poor dog elsewhere now, as we haven't seen them since the last "poop incident.."


LOL!!

Re: Pet peaves

That's a good one.

We have a neighbor lady who has four rather large dogs. There yard isn't fenced so when she comes home for work in the evening she'll come out with the dogs two at a time. One of the dogs, a big ol' German Sheppard, will usually run off the lawn and bark at anything and everything. There has been a few times when my wife and I were outside at the time and the dog will start heading in our direction. My wife, who is scared of big dogs, will head for the door - I usually do too. The lady has assured us the dog is harmless - which, for the most part... is. However, a dog is a dog and since it's not my dog, it's unpredictable. I have asked her that if she sees my GKids outside that she keep the dog on a leash. Kids running, playing and making noise can become a problem for a dog. Does she? Not at all. She usually comes home well after the GKids have been picked up by mom or dad. But still... She could have respected my concern. Maybe she doesn't realize that I'm one of those people that won't think twice about taking her butt to court if her uncontrolled dog ever bites someone I care for. She's kind of arrogant, but so am I.
