Pet Pev. What's yours?

Long winded comments while blogging is irritating.

When a topic is hot and the comments number runs above 30, do not write essay length responses. It's boring and I know I skim or totally jump a comment that is lengthy.

Blogland needs a "reviewer" of blog comments. If they would score them with stars or something everyone would know of its worth reading the next long winded comment.

So that's my current pet pev. You got an interesting one? An irrelevant one? A silly one? I need to be assured I'm not the only crazy person, share your Pev.

Children who answer "Yeah?" or, even worse, "What?" when you call their name. The Southern Girl in me cringes every time.

Another peeve is children who call me by my first name. It bothers my son, too, and he wastes no time in correcting his friends.

My all time, nails-on-a-chalk-board, throw-the-book-across-the-room pet peeve is using the term "clip" instead of "magazine."

So, scoot over and make room for me on the Crazy bench. ;-)

I can't think of any pet peeves off the top of my head, but I'm sure I'll stumble across a dozen or so before the end of the day. *g*

I have three major ones
#1- stupid people-the ones who seem to have no common sense

#2- people who "know" everything

#3- going to resturaunt and having the food on the plate touching the other food-for me this is the biggest pet peeve lol

Laughin with Joanie. Yeah, well if we're talking military men portrayed in fiction, I HATE it when TV or moves show a supposedly ultimate military man or unit silhouetted on a hill or ridge. Makes me crazy.

NJ, you just can't get irritated. LOL

Wow Kelly. Sit right down here on the crazy bench with us. The food touching is a good one!

ooooo. You're right, Gail. That one would drive me nuts, too.
Joanie, making a note to check for silhouettes

I'm with Joanie about the kids and their lack of respect for their elders (that's really what it boils down to - we're not their friends) and then I'd have to add *takes a big breath and attempts to avoid anything regarding politics and the military*:

1. People that don't know how to merge onto the highway - pick up the pace people, there is a reason why it's called the "flow of traffic" - I suspect these same people also have difficulty dancing and jumping rope.

2. People that use the words "always" and "never" - they're impossible and I challenge anyone to prove me wrong!

3. When I call my friend's to talk about something and they put their kid on the phone because they're busy - I'm single, I have a dog and I read a lot of erotica - I have no idea what is appropriate and not-appropriate to say to a kid that isn't mine. Especially if they call me by my first name.

4. Those crazy pictures with the embedded pictures that I can never see - you know the ones - they're like a series of dots and colors and if you squint your eyes, turn your head to the left and hop on one foot, you can see Martha Washington. I say it's all a conspiracy by the Democ...well, see, I almost made it.

People who don't understand my sense of humor. But, I'm weird that way.
Also, men who pick at their noses while they drive. Yucky.

Gail said...

Kerin, you crack me up. I'm making a note to let my little one have a long conversation with you. Oh, dang, you are a danger to slow drivers and I'm enjoying visualizing your rants on the on-ramps.

TaraR, I agree. If they don't get your humor they are obviously to stupid to notice.
