So Annoying! August 17, 2013

I’ve always thought a fun drinking game would be taking a sip every time someone on “Keeping up with the Kardashians” (yes, I’ve been known to watch the show with Kristen!) says something or someone is “so annoying.”  You see, I find it very annoying they say it constantly.  You could say it’s a pet peeve of mine.


Pet peeve1


I recently saw the above and died laughing and it got me thinking about pet peeves.  We all have them and here is a sampling of mine:

  • Disorganization
  • People talking on cell phones in public places
  • Those round stickers runners put on their cars with how many miles they ran (should I put “hole in one” on mine if I ever make one?!)
  • Older, mature women dressing like teenagers
  • Those AT&T commercials with the man asking kids questions…soooo annoying!
  • Starbucks drink sizes names.  (why isn’t “grande” the biggest and what the heck is “venti?”)
  • Alarm clocks
  • People wearing sunglasses indoors or when being interviewed on TV
  • Short on-ramps on freeways
  • Solicitors at my front door
  • When the person at the front of the right lane at a red light isn’t turning right
  • Cabinets or drawers left open after someone gets something from them
  • That Norah Jones’ debut album beat Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising” for album of the year after 9/11 at the Grammys
  • When celebs complain about being famous
  • That the IPhone 5 requires all new charges and IHomes than the IPhone 4
  • The fact that, regardless of anyone else’s score or his, Tiger Woods always gets the TV coverage
  • That our regular trash bin is green but the recycle one is blue.  Shouldn’t it have been the other way around?
  • Jennifer Aniston’s “no bra” look on nearly every episode of “Friends.”  (We get it…you’re sexy but enough already.)
  • I hate that the carts at Target always stick together and getting one is nearly impossible
  • Bad grammar (irregardless is not a word and “axe” does not mean “ask”)
  • Over-plucked eyebrows
  • Hand blowers in bathrooms instead of towels
  • The fact that eye appointments, glasses, and lenses are not considered standard on insurance coverage.
  • Masseuses who talk the whole time or who try to fix every ache and pain in one hour.  (Just rub!)
  • People who start every sentence with “I mean…”


And last, but certainly not least…
