Day 13: Pet Peeves

There are so many things in this world that annoys me, that I don’t think they would all fit into one post. I recently did a post on some of my Facebook pet peeves. Here are some other of my pet peeves.

Phone Sales

You know the ones. The people that call you, sometimes several times a day, and try to get you to buy something. Or even worse, sometimes you pick up and there’s no one there because they use an automated system and someone else picked up first! And the ones who can’t take no for an answer? I don’t need to tell you why I don’t want your stupid service/subscription – you should just accept my no!

Bad Drivers

People who drive too slow. Or won’t indicate before turning. Or takes up two spots in the parking lot when it’s busy. (I mean really… There were three spots left and you decided that it was a good idea to block out two?)

People Who Can’t Write

Maybe this should be on the Facebook pet peeves – but it goes for everything. In Swedish you usually don’t use a space when you put two words together (unlike English often does), but some people still do – and it drives me nuts. Or people who can’t be bothered to write properly. I use some abbreviations, sure – who doesn’t? – but when hardly a single word is spelled out… It makes me shudder. And let’s not get into “their”, “they’re” and “there”…

There are many many more, but I’m running out of time…

Do you have any pet peeves?
