Pet Peeves

17 Jan

This weeks blog topic in my blogging group GBE2 is pet peeves. Initially I didn’t want to take part this week because I thought I was easy going and really didn’t have many pet peeves. As the week has progressed, while pondering this topic and thinking about what my pet peeves may be, I realized that after cancer I actually have more things that bother me than I thought…uh oh. Anyhow, I thought I’d list some of them out.

1 I can’t stand when people not only think they are better than you, but act like they’re better than you.

2 I don’t like it when people make assumptions about you based on hearsay, looks, gender, race, etc, without really knowing you or your story

3 I don’t like having to repeat myself to my kids when they’re asked to do something (especially when I know they hear me)

4 I don’t like it when I’m asked to take care of something that that person could do…”these leftovers are going to rot in the fridge, you should really throw them out”…My reply, “’You’re looking at it, can’t you throw it out?”

5 I don’t like it when people are nice to your face but will talk negatively about you if given the chance (really dislike disingenuous people)

6 I’m bothered by consistent complaining about dumb things…life is too short. Either someone is worst off or generally it’s not that bad

7 Last thing for now, I cant stand it when I purchase something and I get home, open the box and it’s the wrong item, the wrong size, the wrong color (referring to lipstick of course)

I’m sure there are many more, but it’s a small snapshot of what I thought about with pet peeves as my topic in mind this week. Obviously most of my pet peeves are related to people and their treatment or mistreatment. Once again, love God , love others. Look people in the eyes, find out their stories. Don’t be too quick to judge. Also, gossip is the quickest way to dissolve a trusting relationship, be careful, it could be poison. All it takes is one person to start a fire.

This week I choose Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Legendary. First off, it’s red, second, who doesn’t want their life to be legendary? As a side note, this is a new Smashbox formulation which is more creamy and the colors are beautiful! Enjoy!

    As usual I love you thinking. People who are inconsiderate drive me nuts and I always wonder if I have accidentally been inconsiderate to anyone today or yesterday. I hope not. Great post and for a gal with no peeves, you found some good ones!

    Words to live by. Always great.

    7 reminds me of something that happened to my mom once. She had bought a new bra (one of those that come in a box). When she got home and opened the box, inside she found an old, nasty, dirty bra! Someone had “tried on” this particular bra, put their old, worn out bra in the box, and returned it to the shelf. After that happened to her, when I spent my time working in this particular store, I opened every bra box that I rang up to make sure it had in it what it was supposed to have so none of my customers would go home to the same surprise!

      Angela, great story and great follow through on or part later on. Sometimes it’s the wrong color, once it was two left feet in a shoebox…hate it. Thanks for stopping by!

    Isn’t it amazing, when you start to think about this, and read the peeves of others, how much of life drives as batty *grin* Good response to the topic :o)
