Things that annoy me!

We all have those little things which really get on your nerves, I have a few, I like to think I have a relatively high tolerance level, but there are some things which just wind me up!

I think it goes without saying that everyone likes good manners, yes? 

One of my pet hates is when people don't have good manners. Little things such as when people don't say 'thankyou' if you are out shopping and stop to hold a door open for them. I also can't stand it when people chew with their mouths open, hello human washing machine!

Punctuality is something which is quite important to me. I have a friend who is never on time for anything! If we arrange to meet up for dinner or something he is at least 20 minuets late every time, without fail. I have joked to him that I will buy him a watch for Christmas! 

Sales shopping, oh how we all love the grab ourselves a bargain, but I can't stand it when people push and barge you out the way. I know sometimes you have to be ruthless and stand your ground, but there is a difference between this and just plain rudeness. I will save my poor toes the bother of getting trampled on.

Dog owners who don't pick up their pup's poop! I have seen this so often and is disgusting, especially on beaches or parks. There are usually plenty of bins around and doesn't take too much effort does it? 

I am not a parent, so I don't know how I would feel, but I am pretty sure this one would annoy me!  I feel sorry for parents who struggle to find car parking spaces designed for them but are taken up by people who don't have push chairs or car seats. The same applies for blue badge holders. Those car parking spaces are designed for those who need it, everyone else can park a little further away and walk, it won't kill you.

I think I will stop now because I am in danger of sounded like a grumpy old cow! I would love to hear what winds you up too! Let me know.


  1. Oh, don't get me started on manners. Yep, that is a huge pet peeve of mine too. I work with some of the rudest people ever . . . interrupting conversations, cutting in front of you in line, pretty much oblivious to anything and anyone around them. *GRRR*

    Punctuality is big for me too. I know someone is always late and we've grown to expect it, and this person jokes about it, yet there is never any attempt to correct that habit.

    I can tolerate the occasional swear word but those who must use every form of f*** as every other word in their sentences disgust me. It makes you look f***in' stupid, duuuude.

    Loud people bother me too. Really? Does all of Walmart need to hear your business? Inside voices, people!!

    Ok, that's a few. LOL


  2. Hi Deb, I know! I thought I would write a few of my pet peeves down! see if anyone else feels the same. I am with you on the interrupting conversations and queue jumping! x

  3. Haha this post made me laugh! But it's so true though, everything you'v listed annoys me too. Gosh I especially hate swearing too, I just find it so pointless and pathetic!
    I dont know about you but I can't stand it when people spit! Like they'l just be randomly walking down the street and suddenly turn their head to the side and let a big glob of spit out! =/ ugh!

  4. People being late is one of my biggest pet peeves, too! I can't stand it! I had an ex that was late for EVERYTHING. He once made me 30 minutes late for a midterm exam!

  5. I also have a friend who is always late, and man, that's just annoying. She even admits herself that it's bad style, and yet she keeps doing it. Argh!

  6. Iam with you on all of these, especially the parking spaces one. I hate it when you see people with no kids using parent and child spaces. I have written a few notes to go on peoples windscreens a few times! My mums the worst though, if the person is thete she gets out her car an says "wheres your child then?!" lol.

    Holli. X

  7. I absolutely hate people that don't take the door when I hold it open...I am not the doorman I am just trying to keep it from slamming in your I regret NOT letting it slam in your face!

    I am cracking up over human washing machine...that is the best nickname for that!

    I think my biggest pet peeve about shopping is when your at the cashier and the person next in line stands RIGHT ON TOP OF YOU...I once turned to them and said...are you paying for this...they said no and I said then please back off while I slide MY CARD! Yeah ... I am
