It’s That Time Again… *drum roll*…

A big thank you to Tara Tyler for awarding me the… *drum roll please*… Versatile Blogger Award!

I graciously accept this award. *curtseys*

And now I will oblige you with seven facts about 'moi'… seven of my pet peeves. These are some of the things that really annoy me:

~~ talking about myself (not really certain if it qualifies as a pet peeve, but it annoys me)

~~ greasy fingerprints on the fridge door/handle of the kettle/TV remote (so obvious cause it's black)/even the computer keys. Simple solution–eat first… well before pursuing any other activities like googling or watching TV–just DON'T decide to do all above-mentioned activities at the same time!

~~ lids/covers not replaced on bottles/tubes/containers etc or partially-screwed or partially-clipped on. Most annoying! *grits teeth*

~~ telemarketers phoning with special offers/upgrades on accounts/insurance policies/ gym contracts etc. But just phone them with a query–the original consultant you dealt with has long-since left the company. And dare you fall behind with one payment, that's it, they don't care, they want their money!

~~ yuppies/buppies. You know the instant-gratification-seeking, social status seeking, Johnny-come-yesterdays;  who feel that the world owes them? But haven't worked, I mean REALLY WORKED HARD for at least one full year in their entire lives? Want everything ASAP. As in yesterday. Not later. Over-inflated sense of entitlement? And arrogance? Need I say more?

~~ parents who leave their kids to run wildly in public places. Remember, psychology is for grad students, not for 7-year-old raucous brats! Quit over-reasoning with them–it's obviously NOT WORKING. Tell them WHAT IS, WHAT WAS and WHAT WILL BE! A good, solid spank is NOT abuse.

~~ hangars in the wardrobe, with clothes half-off/tangled… aaargh!

At this point I'm going to bend the rule a teensy-weensy bit… please bear with me. Since many, many bloggers have already been recipients of this award, I am not going to pass it along just yet. I'll do so at a later date.

Care to share some of your pet peeves?

    LOL! Congrats on the award. I love hearing about people's pet peeves. I have a ton of them but they never come to mind when I need them! haha. I really HATE finger prints though. They drive me nuts!

    Congratulations on the award! 🙂
     
    I definitely agree with you on people who have a sense they're entitled to everything.

      Thank you. 🙂 And the sad part is that they’re so wrapped up in it, which makes them oblivious to the predicament.

      Thanks Jamie! Actually, it was done for me… I’m not very clued up when it comes to adding gadgets/widgets to my blog. I ‘m still learning.
