Pet Peeves

Here are a few of my Pet Peeves
My #1 Pet Peeve by far is
People who are late. UGH! This one gets me on an angry roll. If you have to be at at 2PM then be here at 1:59!!!  You know all week long that the event starts at 2PM.  There is no reason you should be late. The late people are always the same. You are always waiting on the same people. Like they are extra SPECIAL and you SHOULD wait on them.  Now don't get me wrong. We all run late and things sometimes happen to make you late. I am talking about the disrespectful people that you can count on to be late at any type of event you invite them to. I have a family of 5 to prepare. We may run around the house like chickens with our heads cut off and I may be stressed the heck out while getting everyone together, however, you can COUNT ON ME TO BE ON TIME! P.S. If I am not on time I will have the courtesy to call you and tell you! The normal Later ones don't have that courtesy. Now on to the NEXT! I told you I could roll on this one!!

My #2 is definitely people who do NOT take a little pride in what they do...YES we ALL HAVE to work. Most of us don't want to and most of us don't like our jobs....BUT if you have to do it you must do it right. TAKE A LITTLE PRIDE and do it good. If you are a server, be the server your customer wants. (this pays off)...If you work at McDonalds, Be nice and courteous, if you work at Walmart and we need help then help with a smile. Whatever it is, Be Proud of the JOB you do!

#3 How about parents that leave their kids trailing behind them..Too many times I have seen grown ups walk through a door and their little kids are scrambling to make it in behind them before the door shuts...or walking down a street and their kids are behind them. Someone could snatch them up and they would never know. WATCH YOUR KIDS PEOPLE!

I am sure there are more but these are the top 3 that I CAN think of!!!

What are your pet peeves?

  1. I am right with you on number 1, the one thing I can't stand is when the same people always come late, that leaves me and my family waiting, that is not good. Number 2 I agree with you there also. But number 3 really upsets me, I always see this and the one thing that comes to my mind is "someone can grab that kid" That just makes me angry! Thank you for another great post..

  2. #3 drives me nuts. We live in a selfish society. I work in childcare so I see too much of parents putting themselves before their kids.

  3. Ugh, I totally agree with our #3! I find that sad actually!

  4. i like #3 :D we should be nice at all time regardless of job, place or whatever we are in.


Thanks for Visiting Just A Deal Jess!
