What is Your Pet Peeve?

What does pet peeve mean? Per Merriam-Webster, it means “a frequent subject of complaint.” My favorite saying that goes along with it is, “You know what really grinds my gears?!”

No matter how you slice it, everyone has a pet peeve. On Friday, I asked you all if you had anything you needed to vent about, and I got a lot of responses that were great examples of pet peeves! You all had some things to be peeved about!

Jamie W. said: “I swear. I have run into THREE people this week who have stopped in the middle of walking to look at their phones. Sudden stop, middle of the hallway at work. Can we either stop doing that OR learn how to walk and phone?!”

Viv B. said: “I just got home from visiting family, and I sighed the minute people stood and crowded the aisle of the airplane. It’s okay people. You will get off the flight. There is no need to stand up until it’s your row’s turn. We all know you have places to be.  Also, why are people always in such a hurry at airports? I think it’s the ultimate place to learn you have little or no control over a lot in your life. That’s kinda deep though. . .”

Connie L. said: “Work. In general. But it’s the worst when I get a whole pile of junk on a Friday around 4 pm. Seriously people? My brain clocked out. Can’t help you until Monday. Then I stress about it all weekend, knowing the mountain I’ll come in to on Monday.”

Emmie Z. said: “When anyone says, “no offense, but. . .” yeah, you know you’re about to be REAL offensive. Let’s just remove that phrase from our vocab.”

What do you think? Do any of these resonate with you? What is one of your biggest pet peeves? Let’s all gripe together in the comments!
