Pet Peeves

During this time of year, most folks are feeling mellow and sweet just because the holidays can be so wonderful.  I usually am, but this year I’m feeling a bit grouchy.  So I decided to list my pet peeves – at least the ones that I currently have.  Maybe that will put me in a different frame of mind before Christmas gets here.  So here goes:

  1. I detest “mood lighting” in public bathrooms.  What’s up with that?  When I’m using the bathroom, I prefer to be able to see really well what I am getting into.  Sometimes I think that they design the low lights to hide dirt.  And who goes to the bathroom to get into the mood anyway?  Turn up the lights please!
  2. I get really cranky when I am following someone who is driving slow when I’m in the mood to go fast.  And I get equally cranky when someone is tailgating me when I’m in the mood to drive slow.
  3. I really don’t like to talking to people who only talk about themselves.  I’m pretty interesting, I think.  Ask me what I’m up to.  I’ll try to entertain.
  4. My dog irritates me.  He needs to eat, go outside, and he barks and whines.  His biggest crime?  He’s not a cat.
  5. Sales people who talk incessantly bother me.  Give me some information, then give me time to think.  If you bombard me, I am more inclined to walk away.  Even if it is a good deal.  And please laugh at my jokes.  I’m spending money, so that should buy at least a giggle.
  6. I get irritated by people who don’t answer the question that is asked of them.  We’ve all met these folks.  You ask them what color the sky is, and they will tell you that the grass is green.  Most politicians fall into this category.
  7. Why do doctors think they know more about me than I know?  Okay, yes, they are highly trained in the medical field.  But I am highly trained in living inside my body.  I know what I know, regardless of what a doctor’s education tells him.
  8. I really don’t like people who are not appreciative.  However, I’m beginning to sound like one.

That’s it for now.  Happy Holidays!

I have a wide range of interests, but not a great deal of depth in any of them. So here I share just a smattering of my random thoughts, mostly for my own amusement.
