My Top 5 Pet Peeves

I’m sucking big time at this 30 days of blogging challenge. 

I’m afraid some of the topics have already been covered in previous posts so I’m just gonna dip into the list and pull out some that haven’t been written about.

Pet peeves is a good one to start with because who doesn’t like to vent about things that grind their gears?


1) Two faced people.

This has to be top peeve because it is something I just cannot handle.

I’m the worst judge of character in the world so if someone is nice to me I’m like a rescue puppy wagging my tail at the attention and kindness. Returning their affection and handing over my trust immediately.

Several occasions it has taken someone else to point out to me that people in my life aren’t all they seem just because they smile and say the right things.

It makes me really uneasy to be around people like that.


2) People that clear their throats/nose in public/spitters.

No explanation needed you filthy, filthy animals.

I really do not need to hear the inner workings of your sinuses.

For the love of God, get a tissue and go blow your conk in private.

3) Parents that allow their children to grow up too quickly then let said children infiltrate my innocent daughter’s circle of friends.

She will not know what sex is until she accidentally stumbled across my well thumbed 50 shades of grey when she is 40 and even then she will find it vile and unthinkable and will vomit immediately.

Let them play dolls and bake cakes.

Life takes their innocence all to quickly as it is.

4) People that stay with partners that cheat & cheating partners.

No, you’re not doing it for the kids. They won’t change and it won’t make you stronger. It’s perpetuating the notion that such behaviour is acceptable not only for them but their kids too.

Also…why cheat? How much hard work and personal grooming must go into an affair?

I don’t shave for my husband, I’m not gonna start for someone else.

Can you imagine going back to that ‘holding in farts’ phase? No thank you!

5) Extra long half term holidays.

Ok, time with my children is awesome. I love them more than anything but beyond the one week it’s just an exercise in scheduled grandparent sitting and damage limitation when I take them into the office thus making me feel like a complete and utter loser at motherhood.


Ok, your turn..what are your pet peeves?
