you got me peeved

Pet peeves. We all have them. Some people, more than others. I may or may not be that “some people”. I wouldn’t call myself a negative person, but there are a lot of little things in this world that get on my nerves. The following list is semi-inspired by Rachel’s “the worst thing in the world” list.

source

1. Loud noises in small spaces – this seriously drives me up the wall. Like, if someone claps in a car. I can’t handle that. I don’t what it is, but it absolutely irks me.

2. Font hogs. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS? If you have a font, and I ask you what it is, just TELL me. You’re going to look stupid when you tell me that it was specially made or you just blatantly ignore me and then I find it a day later. Come on people. It’s not YOUR font, share the love!

3. When words are Improperly Capitalized. What? Why is that capitalized? It especially drives me nuts when reading, because I have like grammarcheck/spellcheck-eyeballs. I read things how it would read if I read it out loud, does that make sense? So. If. You. Write. Like. This. I am reading it with all the pauses. If you write about going Home for the Holidays, I’m going to put emphasis on those words. And sometimes, it’s just unnecessary. Come on guys!

4. Nosepickers. And flickers. It’s pretty self-explanatory.

5. People that think everything in life comes free, or should be handed to them because of some situation. Stop it. It doesn’t. Work for it.

6. Last but not least, the overuse of #hashtags. Sometimes, they just don’t have a place in every sentence. Sometimes, #your #instagram #shouldn’t #look #like #this. Okay, that’s all the time!

Call me naggy Nancy if you wish, but I KNOW you are probably saying AMEN SISTER! to at least half of these things!

And you know what doesn’t peeve me off (does that even work?)…is when you VOTE FOR ME to be Chicnova’s IT Girl. The contest ends in two days and I need 163 more votes to win a prize. If you’ve voted before, sometimes you can vote again..so please check. All you have to do is “like” Chicnova and click Vote on the picture of me (it says pretty & leather at yourstrulyblog.com on the picture as well). If you already like Chicnova, the link will take you directly to my photo. I am honestly – and shamelessly, clearly – begging you.

What are your pet peeves?

Comments

  1. haha….this just made me laugh today.

  2. Amen, Amen, and AAAAAAMEN to number 5.

    Oops. Did that set off your #3 peeve? ;)

  3. Seriously on the hashtags! Drives me crazy.

  4. Your getting a big AMEN to all of these from me!

    ” I have like grammarcheck/spellcheck-eyeballs.”
    I have those too!!! =D

  5. Amen to #5!!! Loved your list of pet peeves girl!

  6. Haha yes!!! I love this, although I might be guilty of the hashtag thing! But yes! And nosepickers are gross!!!

  7. I love this, I could add so many to this list!

    “5. People that think everything in life comes free, or should be handed to them because of some situation. Stop it. It doesn’t. Work for it.”

    SO TRUE. I hate people who feel so entitled and always live on “I can get away with it, it always works out in the end because someone will help me out!”

  8. Such a great post, so many of these apply to me!

  9. All of these are annoying.

    I hate when people act like a font, or an HTML color shade, is their special unique find that only they have a claim to.

    I like Twitter but dislike the hashtags trend that has come from it.

  10. Wow, at least I know it is not just me with 1. 2 is pretty rude. Eck, 4 is so nasty and I agree. 5 will never make sense to me and it drives me nuts that people are like that. No naggy Nancy girl. I am giving you a Amen Sister! Love that little vote for me bit at the end.

  11. I HATE it when people capitalize weird or puncuated stupid. So annoying. More than anything, though, is people who breathe loud. I dont’ get it…how hard is it to just not sound like you just ran a marathon when you’re sitting in a desk?!

  12. Like when someone leaves their iPhone on loud when they’re inside and everything else is perfectly quite?!!! Come on now you could hear your vibrate so why the loudness?

  13. Nosepickers…ew!

  14. this is great! one of my biggest pet peeves is when people don’t push clear on the microwave and it still has the seconds left on it. i hate going to look at it for the time and it’s not there. so random but it drives me crazy ha you have a beautiful blog! (love the names olive and ivy too by the way) happy to be following along now and am excited to read more!

    would love if you stopped by mine and let a new blogger know what you think :)

  15. Too funny I have a Vlog on this going up tomorrow! Love your list & the new layout!

  16. My per peeves are drivers who insist on weaving in traffic. Okay buddy, you’re going to get there 10 seconds sooner Iif you keep changing lanes. It’s SO obnoxious! And I also hate when someone finishes like a jar of peanut butter or something, but leaves a teeny bit but its not enough to use and puts it back on the shelf. Then I see it and think there’s some left and I get royally pissed off when I open it and see like half a spoonful left!! Jason does this with the milk all the time!

  17. “I have like grammarcheck/spellcheck-eyeballs.”

    PREACH, SISTER! I am right there with you. My boyfriend purposely uses ‘u’ and ‘r’ in text messages because he knows that it makes my eye twitch. We’re all adults here, and we’ve all passed elementary grammar classes. Now lets act like it, shall we?

  18. Nose pickers are gross. And I totally agree with number 3 and 5.

  19. Seriously agree with every single one of these! Although, if someone asked me for the name of my font.. I have no idea what it is lol! But if I did, I’d tell someone :P
    And I just can’t get over the new blog design, I love it.
    And I think I like Olive & Ivy more and more every day! So funny that it was just the first thing that popped into my head :P
    Okay, I’m done rambling.. :)

  20. Love this! Love your new design by the way as well xoxo

  21. Very funny! I agree with so many, but the clapping in the car thing really hit home. I have never met anyone else that is bothered by this.

  22. Number 5 & 6 have got to be the most annoying things ever. I hate going on instagram and you have a whole damn paragraph hashtagged. Come on now!

  23. Haha I laughed at all of these! Yep I’ve got some pet peeves too – people reading over my shoulder drives me insane! As well as when you’re walking, and people either walk really slowly and take up the whole path, or stop right in front of you – erghh! :)

  24. #4 had me bust out laughing. Then of course my mind had to go there and I immediately thought, “well, you can EAT it” – and I grossed myself out …

  25. Really enjoyed this post =) Don’t get me started on drivers!

  26. Love this fun post! Mine would be #1 (like yours), people that don’t use turn signals, and people who feel self entitled to being first.

  27. hahah that is hilarious!!! i’ve never even heard of that before. font hogs. lol what a laugh. silly people :)

  29. i’m with you on the pet peeves!

    my biggest one: when someone has the music in their car so loud that your car next to them is vibrating to it. doesn’t bother me as much driving down the road but i absolutely can’t stand it when i’m stuck at a stoplight!

  30. i hate it when people are reading and the laugh out loud. I’m not talking about people that genuinely do it, but those who laugh just for other people to ask them whats so funny. You know who you are. Stop it. I’m not going to ask.

  31. I love this :) The hashtag thins drives me NUTS too! P.S. I love your blog design!

  32. lol, this is a great list!
    another pet peeve of mine is people you call you “honey” or “sweetie” in a way to make you feel inferior!

    Jamie

  33. OMG!!!! The talking loud inside cars makes me see red. I. Was. Nodding. My. Head. At. Each. Of. These.

    Haha I love you twinnn!

  34. #1 doesn’t bother me too much, unless its constant.. Then I start going a little bonkers.
    I couldn’t agree more with #3, I can’t stand when people do that. Like Why Would You Capitalize Every Freaking Word, or when people spell things weird – gurlz. Or putting #$@ symbols in words. I could go on for days :D
    I’m with you on #6 too!
    Haha, love your list!
    P.S. It’s let me vote for you six or seven times to far!

  35. hahaha. I type things just how I would say them too – makes me wonder though, if people read and type the same. Because I meant for THIS word to be expressed greatly, you might think it’s weird for it to be? Make sense? haha. My biggest pet peeves are smacking and crunching on ice!

  36. So funnyyyyy!!! I’ve never understood the hashtag thing… I try to hashtag a little on Instagram, and then I’m like, what am I doing? I haven’t run into font hogs – why would someone withhold font info? LOL I have a giant list of pet peeves as well… one big one includes people interrupting me. My eyes turn into deathly laser beams when that happens. Naggy Nancies UNITE!

  37. Ew nose picking & flicking. I’m guilty of the hash tag thing haha! One of my biggest pet peeves is people who are always rushing or in a rush. It’s like ahh slow down!

  38. Hahah this made me laugh! I have a few for you… um double dipping… yeah ew, people who don’t understand 4-way stops, people who don’t know the difference between your & you’re (or there, their & they’re, where, were, wear, etc.), bad spelling &/or grammar in general and lastly (for today anyway) people who have a blatant disregard &/or disrespect for others! :)

  39. Fabulous post – I have a huge list of pet peeves (probably growing by the day) – today’s top has got to be how no one else in my house is able to put away or pick up a pair of shoes, they lie all over the hall. Think I live with 3 octopus.

    Love your blog.

  40. New follower here!! And I agree with all of those as well!! Well said! :)

  41. I hate hashtags, even on Twitter and Instagram. Facebook is the all time worse though, they don’t even link anywhere!

  42. HAHAHA! I agrees. I. Read. That. With. All. The. Pauses. Too.

    Too true…
