Pet Peeves & Summer Surprises

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Happy Tuesday! You made it 1/5 of the way through the work week! Unless you're my husband who's every workday is his Monday and his Friday. Must be nice. (Totally not bitter at all!) Anyways, today I thought I would share with you some of my biggest pet peeves along with a fun surprise to bring a smile to your day after I complain about seven things that drive me crazy. Do any of these annoy you? 

People who don't like dressing up and who don't like the color pink. I don't feel like I even need to say more than that :) 

Driving your car on the beach. If it were meant to be driven on, they would have paved it! I honestly got the biggest smile ever when I saw this. Karma sucks! (And just so you know, everyone is okay... including the car) 

People who say “it’s too cold to snow”. Why do you think there’s snow in Antarctica or Alaska you moron?!? We live in Oregon, where when it’s 32 degrees people think it’s too cold to snow! It can’t be too cold to snow, it can however be so cold that the snow only comes down in very light precipitation, but as long as there is water vapor in the air, it can snow.

When people chew ice. I know this is a common thing, but to me it’s like nails on a chalkboard! It gives me instant goose bumps.  Weird I know. I used to have a coworker who would bring an entire water bottle of ice with her to work every day just to chew on! Thank goodness our offices were a few doors away from each other! It's not like it tastes like anything . . . get a piece of gum and chew that instead!

When people you know name their kid names that you liked for when you have kids. Now I know this is no one's fault, but it's still really irritating. I think it's even more irritating when said person is someone you don't really care for, but who you know well enough or who most of your friends know cause it would seem like you're copying them, when in all reality there's no way you'd ever want to copy them. Solution to this problem = read my freaking mind people! 

When people recline their seat on an airplane when you're flying coach. Let's be honest, you're reclining your seat so you have more room, which in turn is creating less room for the person behind you! I feel bad doing this to the person behind me so when the dummy in front of me does this, I'm just left squeezed into a ball between a stranger and the window for the duration of the flight. Thank you sir for giving my chiropractor more business. 

Leaving cooking time left on the microwave. How is anyone supposed to know what time it is? Either let your food finish cooking for the time you thought it would take or press clear when you take your food out. This isn’t rocket science people!

And now that I have sufficiently complained to you :) , I have something fun for all of you. I'm super excited to be partnering with some absolutely amazing women to provide some awesome summery prizes!
