My Biggest Pet Peeves (For Today Anyway...)

1. The ridulously stupid poses they put clothing models in. Seriously, WHO the hell stands like that? That's right folks, NO ONE does. (And if they do, there's something seriously wrong with them.)


2. Bras that make women's boobs look torpedo-shaped and hard. Ladies, they don't look natural like that and it ain't flattering. (I'm trying desperately to find a picture of what I mean, but so far, I'm having no luck. I'll keep looking.)

3. Restaurants/delis/etc. that put celery (and other odd additives) in their tuna salad. Not all of us like crunchy things in our tuna salad, and frankly, it makes me want to vomit. If we want something, we'll add it ourselves. Don't ruin it for the rest of us that just want a nice tuna/mayo combo, OK?

4. People that email/blog/post on internet boards/etc. and don't use proper grammar. Now I understand people make mistakes, or aren't sure of something, etc. (myself included). But for the love of god, you should know that sentences start with capital letters and end with periods. And if you don't know that, than you shouldn't even be on a computer. And they're called paragraphs people! When you don't use them, you stuff is virtually impossible to read (and so I just don't).

5. Er... um... people that publish blog entries before they're supposed to. (Like I just did. DOH! Um, anyway...)

6. People who spend their entire lives trying to make other people feel sorry for them. If what you're complaining/bitching/moaning/sad about can be changed, then I don't feel sorry for you. In fact, you annoy me. Do what you gotta do and move on. (Did that sound harsh? Sorry if that sounded harsh. I'm annoyed by unnecessarily needy people.)

7. One-uppers. If I'm telling you something, I don't want to hear about you having a bigger/sadder/harder/more depressing/more dramatic situation than mine. Let me complain/be sad/vent/bitch for the love of god...

8. The little plastic things that hold price tags on clothing, hats, etc. I always pull them to break them and then I'm holding the one end and can't find the other end that fell until like a week later. I've got those damn things scattered all over my house.

9. People that don't use their turn signals. How freakin' hard is it to flip that little lever and let me know which damn way you're turning? Geez!

10. Husbands that don't listen when I tell them that children who don't get to bed on time are more tired the next day. Which means (contrary to popular belief) that they will not be tired and sedate, but instead, will be more hyper and will misbehave more. I realize this is a hard concept for some people to grasp, but could you just PLEASE trust me on this one and work with me? Because if you don't, I will hurt you in places you didn't know existed.

My mom has adopted my grandma's habit of putting chopped up apples in her tuna salad.

My brain just won't accept that. It doesn't taste bad, it just isn't right!

Janet said...

I always twist my body in that awful fashion and look backwards. It looks sexy;-)

EE said...

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (to all of it!)

Alien said...

LMAO Janet! And you're wearing a matching velour track suit when you do it, aren't you? PIMP!

And um APPLES? In TUNA SALAD? Hurl...

mama_tulip said...

I agree with you. Tuna shouldn't be crunchy. And I've always wondered why the hell clothing models stand the way they do.

Veronica said...

Your #'s 6 and 7 are my biggest pet peeves by far. Do we know the same people or what? Scarey....

Slacker Mom said...

Janet said...

Slacker Mom, I am glad you liked my comment (I want to be one up on Allison at all times;-)

Melissa said...

Who the hell eats tuna anyway? Blech.

I didn't mean that, I'm just offended that you're annoyed with the way I stand at the beach.

Mary said...

Allison I have more pet peeves than you. And my kids get more hyper than yours. And I NEVER use my turn signal. And I always leave my cart in random places.

Uh kidding of course. But I DO have horrible grammer, and don't know how to type, so you'll have to let that one go.... ;)

Alien said...

lol mary. and your grammar isn't bad i'm talking about people that write an entire email, post, letter, etc. like this with no periods or capital letters or paragraphs i mean how the hell am i supposed to read something like this and know what the hell i'm reading my favorite is when someone types something that is long enough to take up my entire computer screen and its one looooong sentence and one looooong paragraph

Pink Rocket said...

Ew! Apples in tuna?? Yuck! My grandmother puts grapes in her chicken salad, that's good...The only thing that goes in my tuna salad is tuna, mayo, mustard, eggs, salt, pepper, and relish if I'm feeling frisky!

Alien said...

OMG! What is WITH you people putting relish in your tuna? Dear lord people... LMAO!

Alien said...

Oh, and Pink Rocket, I'm laughing my ass off that you said the "only things you put in your tuna are..." and then you listed like 20 things.
