Pet Peeves

I would say I'm glad it's Friday, but every day is pretty much the same when you're a SAHM.  It's just another chilly, gloomy April day up in here.   It looks like the vacation weight gain is still happening because I just woofed down 2 glazed donuts and a fried egg.  Why am I so stinking hungry?  

It's obvious I'm not in the best of moods, so I'm going to embrace my blahs and give you a pet peeves list.  Promise, cross my heart, with a cherry on top that I'll be more chipper next week (the weather is supposed to be better - I think I have SADD - Seasonal Affective Depression Disorder).  
My Top 5 Pet Peeves (in no particular order and don't worry, I have about a million I could list, I just didn't feel like being on the computer all day):

1.  LOL - I don't mean to offend any of you regular "lol" users out there, but enough already.  Most of the time this annoying abbreviation follows something that is honestly not even funny, certainly not laugh out loud funny.  Ugh.  Can't we come up with a new phrase like ITIRFBYMN - "I think it's really funny but you may not."?

2.  Licking Food Off Of One's Fingers - Bleh.  Use a napkin already.  Slobber is the worst.  I don't want to see (or smell) it glistening on my neighbor's fingers while I'm trying to eat.  Bleh.  I already said that.  It deserves a double bleh for sure.  That ruined my appetite.  Now I won't be eating donut #3.  Maybe I can use this to my advantage and have someone lick their fingers so I lose my appetite and will lose my extra 9 lbs.  Hmmmmm.............

3.  Acting Like We've Never Met When We Actually Have Several Times - I don't expect everyone I've met to remember my name.  Goodness knows I'm the worst at remembering names and say "Hey Girl" when I can't remember.  I do, however, expect some sort of recognition that we've met a million times before and a simple "Hi, it's good to see you again, my name is Ethel" will suffice.  Even a "Hey, we've met before, but I can't remember how I know you" is perfectly fine.  Does this happen to you too or am I just completely forgettable?

4.  When Someone Follows Me On Instagram Or Twitter And Then Unfollows Me After I Follow Them Back - Seriously?  That's pretty sad and desperate.  Unfortunately, bloggers seem to be the biggest culprits of this rude behavior.  I guess it's a blog eat blog world out there.  

5.  When I Get Treated Poorly As A Customer By An Employee - If they hate their jobs so much then they should find another one.  The reason they're there is because of the customer.  I can't tell you how many times a shop employee or waitress has acted like I'm bothering them by walking in their store.  It makes me CRAZY!  I want to go all "Pretty Woman" on them.  Remember when you wouldn't help me?  Big mistake, big, HUGE! 

Okay, I feel a little better now.  What are your pet peeves?  

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because it's Mr. BMJ's birthday week.  He needs someone to help him celebrate, right?!


  1. I loooove reading about people's pet peeves. I was excited just reading your title. LOL is horrible. It's so 1995 AOL Chat. As far as #5 goes, I feel like that 90% of the time I go to Cupcake. I mean...they're serving baked goods, how can they be unhappy? This weather is the pits -- I wish I was at home with a movie, a blanket, and a glass of....

  2. Ha! (I used that in lieu of LOL) I totally agree with you. Licking fingers, being treated poorly by staff at places I go to, and LOL are all a little annoying at times. People who chew with open mouths are added to my list along with judgey people. Have a great, baby mama juice filled weekend.

  3. You are so funny! Lol! Just kidding on the "LOL!" My biggest one is "I love me some...!" That is the worst grammar and just makes you sound stupid!

    "Big mistake. Huge. I think I will go shopping now!" Love Julia!

  4. I agree with many of these, but often experience #3, especially since moving to a new place. I am also horrible with names, but am really good at recognizing faces. Hope your Mr. BMJ has a great birthday week. Go ahead and eat KK#3 because diets only start on Mondays.

  5. Great list. Ugh I hate LOL. And nothing annoys me more than someone pretending we have never met when we have so freaking rude! I've been eating copious amounts of food too. Lets get fat together! Happy Birthday to the hubs!

  6. Damn you make me laugh! I share all the peeves with you my dear!O shit #3 really gets me pissed!

  7. These are pretty funny. I went off on a Giant employee recently because she (and three others before her) were clueless, rude and so unwilling to help.

    Pet peeve: when people say they are "so busy." Who isn't busy?

  8. Ooh, love this! Mine is when people say, "Without further adieu." I always have to stop myself saying, "Um, adieu means farewell. I think you mean ado." Drives me crazy!

  9. I hate LOL a lot but I find myself using it on random texts and I'm like why did I just do that?! This is a recent development- I'm more of a Hahaha person. Licking fingers is the most disgusting thing ever- I hate when people do it. The whole following you and then unfollowing is a new blog world thing- people are so desperate to up their # of followers on all social media they don't even care. It's kind of sad and pathetic. I guess they base their self worth off the # of followers they have!
    Happy birthday to the Mr!

  10. These are all totally understandable pet peeves. ;) I also personally hate when somebody unfollows you after you follow them back. That's just completely ridiculous and frankly, not good business as a blogger. I also hate when somebody says, "let's follow each other," and then when I follow them they disappear and don't follow back. Uncool dude. UNCOOL.

  11. Um, miserable employees tick me off for sure. I could name a few places... but I won't.
    And how do you even know that they unfollowed you? That's so weird!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
