Question of the Week


What is your most ridiculous and irrational pet peeve?

Jen: I hate washing cheese graters. Hate with a passion! Nothing will get me muttering under my breath like a crusty grater!


Crystal: That's a good one! I don't own a cheese grater - but I have in the past and I remember them being horrible....kinda like a colander if you get pasta pieces stuck in it or something - I always feel like I can never really get it clean and then I'm grossed out by it!

I have many pet peeves....a ridiculous and irrational one though...hmmmm....

Well I was talking about this recently, but I HATE to do things twice or backtrack at all...goes for everything whether it's telling a story to 2 different people (why I love facebook and blogs because i can post it once and just refer people to it), driving somewhere and then having to backtrack on the same road to get somewhere else - sometimes I'll purposely go the longer way just to not have to drive on the same road again...writing an email or blog only to send/post it and receive an error and then it's lost!! Most times I just won't rewrite it...I'll give up because I can't stand to write the same thing over again!

This probably bugs most people, but for me I think it's a little more extreme in terms of how it affects me, lol.

And another quick one - I hate when cars stop at a light and leave a whole car's length or two in front of them....for whatever reason it bugs the crap out of me...just move up! You're not gonna hit the car and you're already stopped, so I don't think the car length rule applies here!!

Jen: Backtracking seems like a pretty normal pet peeve, but with you I know it's different! Going the long way just so you don't have to take the same road twice is a little extreme- or OCD, lol! Isn't it funny how we're all crazy in our own wacky ways?! I embrace the crazy, though.

hmmmmm, one of my pet peeves is when I go through a drive thru, a store employee or a waitress calls me "hon". I don't know why, it just irks me.

I am quirky about waking up to a pile of dirty dishes in my sink too.....

Solution to cheese grater problem discovered! Bought one o those nifty big box stainless graters from Williams Sonoma. It washes sparkly clean in the dishwasher.

(One) of my peeves is conversational - Do you mind if I ask you a ? Before you can say yes, for the hundredth time they're already asking the question.... Or forgive me for saying... and then say "it", anyway... ugh. Just ask or say it already... You're gonna anyway.

I hate the car stop too! Especially when you need to get in the left hand turn lane and Mr. or Mrs. "I Can't Drive" has `1-2 car lengths in front of them.. I honk of the horn - use scoot up hand signals and nothing.... Okay - I'm getting mad all over again..lol
Love,
Kelly

Came over from 5 moms but I just have to say that I did not consider that a pet peeve until I read this...YES! It is a pet peeve of mine I guess. Way to discover that for me. I am off to throw them all away!!! ;)
