Random Thursday ~ Pet Peeves

I'm back for another Random Thursday with the lovely Em, Lin, and Meaghan to discuss my pet peeves!

Bad drivers...

You know the drivers that don't use their blinkers.  Um hello this is how you communicate with other people on the road, use them!

The drivers who don't understand how to use an on ramp.  You're supposed to be at speed with traffic on the highway by the time you're supposed to be merging onto the highway.

Same goes for those drivers that don't understand you're not supposed to slow down on the highway before getting to the off ramp (unless it's necessary to safely navigate the off ramp {sharp corners on off ramps}).

Slow drivers.  Enough said!

People that have no concept of what being on time means.

Unfortunately there are adults who are constantly late.

Even worse when those people that are late think that they can then make up that time at the end of the meeting or class.  I had a professor that showed up late and then thought he could hold us after class was supposed to end to make up for it.  This made me constantly feel rushed to make it to work on time following his class.

Even worse yet (when it comes to work) is those people that are late but then think they can still leave "on time".

People with no consideration for others.

If you're going to be late, call and have a good reason not some BS excuse.

The world does not revolve around you.  Sometimes you need to compromise!

Starting a book series only to learn all the books haven't been published yet.

Nothing worse than starting a series and being hooked on it then needing to wait for the next book to be published.  I'm looking at you Divergent trilogy!

So, that's all I got off the top of my head as I write this.  Had I thought about this in advance maybe I could have came up with more or some better ones.  Seems I have a problem with other people huh?  Speaking of which, common sense isn't common, that's another pet peeve.  Use your brains people!

Okay, enough for one night before you all hate me!


  1. divergent! I felt like it was years until insurgent came out!
    and I don't think it was nearly as good as the first.
    I had a prof who would be late and then keep us 7-10 minutes late every class. doesn't seem like a huge deal but it is when you are trying to get to a packed class on the other side of campus. so rude.

    thanks for linking up!

  2. I have to admit... I have a hard time being on time. *hangs head* That said, I do know I'm in the wrong when I am, so I'll always make up time if I'm late for something where staying late only affects me. So with you on the book thing! By the time the next one comes out I've forgotten what happened in the last one and I have to start over. (I have a terrible memory.) Thanks for linking up with us!


I love comments from my readers. I read every one and do my best to respond to you via email or on your blog.
