In which I ramble about peeves…

We’re back for another round of Wednesday Ramblings. Once again my partners in crime for this tag team are Bronwyn Green, Leigh Jones, Kellie St. James, and Jess Jarman. New this week…Kris Norris!

This week we ramble about Pet Peeves. Originally I thought I would expound on one of my greatest sayings (authored with my best friend from college), which goes like this, “It’s people like me who really piss me off.” DH and I have since co-opted it for our own (sorry DM). However, after a most crabby day I decided maybe this isn’t about me after all. It’s about you. Yes, you.

Peeve #1: Do not ask me a question, treat me as if my answer is stupid, then when you ask the next person in line and they give the EXACT SAME ANSWER suddenly decide it’s great. I don’t care if I am younger than you or a woman or for whatever reason you’re just feeling like an ass, don’t do it.

Peeve #2: Read the above, only substitute “let me pitch an idea” for the words “ask me a question.”

Peeve #3: When you’re at my home and you notice I’ve put the toilet roll on “upside down” (i.e. the paper is coming from the bottom), do not change it for me. I LIKE my toilet paper that way.

That’s all I’ve got. Now if we were talking about my shortcomings, there’d be many more!

Feel free to list a peeve below!

    People change the way you orient your toilet paper? On a regular basis? That’s pretty obnoxious.

    My biggest pet peeve is people too lazy to put the shopping carts back where they belong. Worst community members ever.

    Whoa! I mean, I like my TP over the top, but I can’t imagine being ballsy enough to change it in someone else’s house! O.O

    Also…number one *infuriates* me beyond belief! Grrrr

    I might switch your TP, but it would probably be more to tick you off, especially now that I know it bugs you! 🙂

    I am glad that our saying is getting some use. I say it to people here and they look at me like I am crazy! They just don’t get it, silly people. I think that I am going to have to bring it out of the moth balls now, thanks for bringing it up.

    My pet peeve (ok one of them) is crunching food with your mouth opened! Or just crunchy food in the cubicle next to me.

    I love the TP thing. I’ll admit. I will switch ones in my house if, and that’s a big if, a teenage kid actually puts it on wrong. Though come to think of it, I’m generally in awe that they managed to put it on the holder to the point I don’t care.

    Also, I hate when people ask you a question but don’t want the answer. If it’s rhetorical then say it as a statement, asshat. And if you don’t like my answer, then don’t ask.

    Peeve #1 is one I have experienced myself and it’s so incredibly frustrating. There is no greater way for another person to make me feel stupid.

    I promise I won’t change the toilet paper even though I would have an urge to switch it and make it right. 🙂

    When DH pours his coffee and somehow manages to dribble coffee across the counter, but can’t grab a rag to wipe it up. Hence, it dries and I have to wipe it up for him. It’s the small things in life that are called pet peeves, right? So small,but so annoying. I must admit my TP HAS to come over the top. Married over 40 years and we still disagree on this. LOL
