Everyone has things that really get under their skin… Sure there are things in the world that people hate like war and Trump, but don’t you boil with explosive anger when you’re in a rush and there is a large group of slow walking people…
Here is a list of my 5 biggest pet peeves.
- Reckless Driving (especially in bad weather)
Anyone who knows me, or at the very least have been in a car with me, knows that when I’m driving, nothing gets under my skin more than a reckless driver. Especially in bad weather. At the beginning of this year, we’ve had a lot of fog, snow, ice and rain. But apparently, that doesn’t stop people from driving 20 miles over the speed limit and of course, not indicating.
- Not Covering Your Mouth When Coughing & Sneezing
I hate getting sick, particularly when sitting next to someone who chooses to not cover there mouth or nose when coughing and sneezing. I’ve been on a train before and had the unfortunate experience of sitting next to someone who felt they needed to not cover their mouth and nose when sneezing on me.
- Slow Walkers
During the Christmas season, the shops can become particularly busy. Sometimes you need to do a quick shop and you’re rushing around and get caught behind a large group of people who are walking beyond slow.
- Being Late
Being late once is fine, it happens. Sometimes traffic is bad or you lost track of time. But when someone is CONSTANTLY late on every possible occasion, it gets to a point where it’s taking the piss. I’ve once waiting 3 hours for someone to come pick me up… It just becomes rude when someone chooses not to prioritise your meeting time.
- Unclean Toilets
Sharing toilets with a family member or work colleagues are bad enough when you are desperate for the toilet and have to wait, but made worse when you finally get in and they haven’t cleaned up after themselves. There are times I’ve had to use a toilet brush to clean a toilet that wasn’t my mess… Times where I’ve had to pick up tissues off the floor or watch where I step.
Let me know if any of these experiences have bothered you, or your biggest pet peeves.
