Today’s topic is pet peeves and oh boy, where do I even start with this topic? I have A LOT of pet peeves.
1. People who stuff themselves inside an already full subway car.
No, just NO. I do not need to feel your breath on my face. Go away. Wait for the next car.
2. People who walk slow.
I understand that the elderly walks slow and mothers with baby carriages do too. However, if your age ranges anywhere from a teenager to your early thirties, YOU JUST DO NOT WALK SLOW IN A BUSY STREET IN MANHATTAN, especially when there’s no other directions somebody else can take to walk around you. Just, no, no, NO!
3. When people say “hey!” Me: “Yes?” Them: “Never mind.” Me: “No tell me!” Them: “Never mind.”
Then why call me the first place? My sister does this A LOT and it just drives me CRAZY.
4. When people touch me anywhere without permission.
I don’t like to be touched without permission. Even a simple pat on the shoulder (ahem, my doctor) makes me annoyed.
5. People who play music on their phone/music player WAY too loud.
I was sitting on the train once and this woman came and sat next to me. Her music was SO loud that I could hear EVERY word the singer was singing, PLUS my right ear was buzzing angrily from the too loud music (she was sitting next to be on the right side of the train). Add the fact that I was trying to read and you get a very annoyed and angry Kelly.
6. People who borrow your pen or pencil and never give it back.
And when you ask for it the next day (if you remember to), they are like “oh, I left it at home.”
7. When the person sitting behind you won’t stop kicking/pushing/shoving/bumping your chair.
This happened to me today and I thought about turning around and yelling at the person behind me, “do you MIND?”
8. When people don’t use escalators correctly.
There is a system for escalators that can fit more than two people at a time side by side: The right side is for people who want to walk up or down on the escalator because they are in a hurry and the left side is just for people who don’t want to move. Why don’t people get this simple system?
9. When people blame their own mistakes on you.
I am facing this problem right now and it just makes me really annoyed. Power really gets into people’s heads.
I am pretty sure I have A LOT more pet peeves, but I can’t think of them all as of now.
How about you? Do you share the same pet peeves as I do? Do you have some other pet peeves that I didn’t list? I want to know!
