Pet Peeves

According to Wikipedia, a pet peeve is described as a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to him or her, to a greater degree than others may find it.

Mine are ever changing but this week, these five top the list:



This post is for Jessica (My Time As Mom), Kate (Mommy Monologues) and Elena's (Mommy is in Timeout) meme, Vlog Talk. The prompt I chose was #2: pet peeves (submitted by Multitasking Mumma).

This is so not relevant it's not even funny, but you have the most fantastic blue eyes! Dood.

My favorite part of that was (aside from the whole thing) your parting glance. HA! I really giggled.

I love you. A lot.

And oh my God the people who drive slow! "That light is NOT going to get any greener!" And, they only seem to come out of hiding when you're in a hurry, am I right?!

Flaky people drive me crazy. Especially when my oldest is invited and she is so excited about it. Her little heart always breaks when I have to tell her they cancelled.

And don't hate me, but I'm usually running behind when meeting people. Not by choice, it's just how it works out. I don't like it though.

Nap time refusal also drives me crazy.

Ha, loved the face at the end! I hate when people flake out on me too. Even more so when they do it at the last minute!

And yes, people, you need to drive faster! Not unsafe, just speed limit!

I'm sure you've heard it before, but cleaning up after children is like shoveling the driveway while it's snowing.

That being said... You know what I say to that? If I don't stop I'll get snowed in!

PS: Not gonna lie, I'm a little nervous about #2. I think I've done that to you a few times. Ack!

Oh these are good ones! I'm sadly guilty of a few here and there but you're right- so, so very right!

I can't stand slow drivers. I agree - go already! Oh, the days without naps. I don't get why they won't take one. Someday, when they really want a nap, they'll wish they were a toddler again. I love "Disneyland eyes" - hilarious!

I could actually feel my blood pressure rising as I watched your vlog. Those are my pet peeves as well. Every. Single. One. Gaaah! I hate tardy peeps, unless a valid excuse.

All 5 of your pet peeves here? Are 5 of mine too (I have a looooong list). Especially tardiness. It drives.me.up.the.wall.

Agree with Elena - "Disneyland eyes" cracked up!

i am always 5 minutes late. always. my whole life. 5 minutes late.

sigh.

also? your face at the end is my favorite. You are so cute!

Great video :) My 19 month old is an energizer bunny too. He refuses to nap and then he's a terror around 2 hours before bedtime. Drives me nuts so I totally empathize!

I could count all of those as pet peeves too. The worst for me is the cancelling at the last minute! I am like you with the planning and anticipation. It just sucks!

Why does my kitchen have to explode just because someone is hungry (pet peeve #1)? Male children who repeatedly do exactly what I told them not to do (#2), like getting on my Mac laptop after I explicitly said NO ONE IS ALLOWED ON MY MAC because I paid $310 (negotiated down from $610) for a practically new case, keyboard, mouse pad and video screen. Male children who say, "Oops!" when they know they got caught doing what I told them NOT to do just five minutes before.

I could go on and on but I also can relate to the "Would you just DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT please?" Don't you just love it when it's two-lane going in your direction but there are two cars in front of you spread out over those two lanes so no one can pass.

Yep, I have a few pet peeves. Good topic!

Flaky people are the worst. When things are set up show up.

I am always early. I married a man who is always late. We fight a lot about it. Drives me insane!!!!!

Love your vlog today!

I agree, flaky people are the worst!

Oh my, I was totally going to vlog about slow drivers (until the nasty black fly zoomed by... long story -- actually just 2 minutes, come by & check it out).
Also? Yes, Amen iPhone is here now. Yay!

Great list of pet peeves! I definitely agree with disliking people that are flaky and late! Ugh! That really annoys me too! We must be related because I absolutely hate being late too or having to change plans suddenly on people. I literally get sick to my stomach when I know I'm going to be late to something and there's nothing I can do to change it and of course if I can help it, I'm always 5 to 10 minutes early to everything.
