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.
