Okay, while toiling away at work today, there were a few things that stuck out to me. Wonder what peeves everyone else has? For me, it’s the following:
1.) Why do we call it ‘pet peeves?’ It’s not like it’s cute or something that I want to keep around. But ‘pet’ peeves? What the hell?
2.) Office vultures: You know who these people are. Surprisingly, they’re not the ones who go and snatch everything not nailed down on your desk once you leave for good. No, office vultures are the ones who walk past your desk, while you’re eating, and go “Ooo….. (insert food name here)” and then they snatch a bit of whatever you’re eating. Like fries, etc. What the hell? And then they don’t understand why you’re so pissed off at them afterwards?
3.) Low shorts/pants: I don’t want to see your underwear. This is a fad that happened like 15 years ago with kid rappers KrissKross, even though they got it from cons in jail. My point is, shouldn’t this fad be over and done with by now? Seriously. Buy a freakin’ belt and pull up your pants!
4.) Bill O’Reilly and FOX News: For so many reasons. Gets on my nerves so much.
5.) People who use the expressions “anyways” or “alls”, IE: “Anyways, what are you doing?” “Alls I know is …” Drives me up a wall.
6.) This has more to do with what I do for a living than anything else: When someone sends me an email in an official capacity and they have like 20 mistakes (spelling, punctuation, etc). If you’re going to send out an official email, at least take the time to look it over so that you don’t seem like the idiot you are … idiot (let me go ahead and disspell this notion for all of you: newspaper reporters are stupid. They can’t spell. The stories you read in the paper are not the stories they write. They’ve been washed so many times, they’re almost bleached.)
Okay, that’s about it for now. What’s your list of peeves?
