Geez, These Peeves

The generally accepted definition of pet peeves is “something that a particular person finds especially annoying.” I think we are all annoyed by other people but pet peeves take it to a whole other level. And I find them fascinating.

Below are my top five pet peeves:

  1. Leaving doors and drawers half open. Kitchen cabinets particularly bug me because it makes the kitchen look messy.
  2. Unnecessarily spreading out because the space is available. Manspreading, groups taking over a sidewalk, putting stuff all over a hotel room, randomly placing things across a countertop.
  3. Watching videos in public with the sound up high. Everyone doesn’t need to hear it.
  4. Someone who makes a hurtful or offensive “joke” and then gets defensive when “you’re being sensitive.” Your sense of humor sucks if it comes at the expense of others.
  5. Repetitive noises like tapping or clicking. Suuuper annoying.

What are some of your pet peeves?
