5 Pet Peeves {Listable Life}

If you commit any of these crimes... we can still be friends... I think. 
{Kidding! Of course we can!}

1. People Who Are Perpetually Late

Life happens.
Cars break down.
Kids throw up all over you as you are walking out the door.
Traffic jams.
You get a speeding ticket.

Sometimes there are things that you simply cannot avoid or plan in advance. No big deal.

But... if you are perpetually late... I have a slight problem with that.

When you are late- all of the time- you are being inconsiderate of my time. If I extend you that courtesy, I would expect that you would extend that courtesy to me as well. When you are late because you hit the snooze button 15 million times this morning, it screams to me "you are at the bottom of my priority list." And that bothers me.

Okay... mini rant over. I apologize.

2. Smacking Your Food While You Eat

I don't want to see the food that is in your mouth while you eat. That's just gross. 

3. Leaving the Toilet Seat Up

Note to my sons:

Mommy is the only girl in the house right now. Please, please, please, put the toilet seat lid back down after you have used the potty.

I love you. Thank you. You will understand one day.


4. People Who Say: "I'm Going to Go Get My Hair Did!"

What?! I just don't understand why people talk this way....

5. People Who Drive Slow in the Fast Lane

There is a fast lane and a slow lane for a reason people. 
Enough said.

So what are some of your biggest pet peeves? Come on! I told you mine. 

Link up with Moments that Define  Life and let us know!


  1. Oh. My. Word - you MUST be writing from my brain. If I had written this post instead of the other prompt - this is exactly what I would have written! The chained toilet seat was too funny!

    Thanks for linking up again!

  2. Oh yes leaving the toilet seat up is a big one - I think our almost all female household has nearly beaten it out of our only male inhabitant my husband!

    1. Oh I am SO jealous! I cannot even tell you how many times I have fallen into the toilet when I have to get up in the middle of the night and pee. It's sad and utterly embarrassing!

  3. Okay, I can't stand the phrase "Get my hair did" either. I'm really glad I'm not alone. And number 5? This one causes outright road rage in me. I wanna say it was Indiana that tried to actually make it illegal to be in the left lane unless you are actually passing other cars...my heroes
