Day 3: Your top 5 pet peeves.
When I started this blog challenge I said some of these may be short. This is most likely to be one of them. I do have some pet peeves, but not a lot to say about them. One of my pet peeves is how people carry their laptops. I know it sounds like a weird one, but hear me out. I work in IT and I have seen what can happen when a laptop is dropped. I once had seen a user holding her laptop between her thumb and forefinger. I literally took it from her and asked that she not hold it that way.
Another pet peeve is people who shorten words. I see it all the time on social media. I have seen people shorten a four letter word to three letters. You telling me they couldn’t hit one more character? I can’t pass correcting their spelling and grammar when I see it. Now for my top three pet peeves; these drive me up a wall. I see people on their cell phones while driving. I’m not talking about talking on a cell phone. I mean they are actively typing on it. Probably the same people who feel the need to shorten a four letter word to three letters. You’re going to kill someone, stop it.
This one just makes me mad. When people lie to me and I know they are lying. Just tell me the truth. It isn’t that hard. Now for the big pet peeve that I have yelled at complete strangers for. When you’re around people who are eating, don’t blow your damn nose! I was sitting at work, in the café, and trying to eat my lunch. This guy sitting at the table down from me started blowing his nose. I went off on him. He looked like a dear that got caught in the headlights.
