Pet Peeves

I am not a negative person.  I don't complain much and brush most everything off my shoulders.  I've learned most things aren't worth getting worked up about, but I do have a few things that get under my skin, and I just can't control myself.

First, I hate being used!  I'm a giver, it's just who I am.  I will do anything for anyone, and I have a really hard time saying no.  I think that's why people take advantage of my kindness.  Once I do something for them, with out getting anything in return, not even a real thank you, they keep coming back for more, and the sucker I am finds it hard to say no because I don't want to disappoint.  Once someone knows what I can do, they use me/my stuff and that's the only time I hear from them.  What do you do about it? I cry instead of just saying no or ignoring them.

Another peeve, is people who act ignorant, like they have no education and could care less.  Don't get me wrong, I don't think anyone should do things to make others happy, you should make yourself happy, but there has to be a line.  When you are out in public and hear people cussing like sailors in front of children, come on, they don't need to hear your two cents. Show some restraint! 
 I want to smack the ignorant people that drive by you and their kids don't have seat belts on and it's clear because they are crawling around their seats.  If they don't want to wear them, that's one things, but endangering their children.  UGH!
How about the people you can't understand a word out of their mouth because they are using so much slang, and gibberish?  I understand slang is a part of today's language, but act like you have had some English classes.  I know first hand that they teach proper English in school, not slang. But when the parents speak that way, why should the children speak correctly?  Lead by Example!!

I absolutely can't stand people that text while they drive!  There is nothing that important that can't wait until you get where you are going.  If it is that important, CALL THEM! That's what a cell phone is for. I like to text, but it's just an easier way than having to talk to people.  What's next?

Lastly, Fake people!  You know the ones I'm talking about.  The ones that are all nice to your face, but have an ear load to say about you behind your back.  Or really don't like you, but don't have the decency  to let you know why, they just ignore you.  I guess ignoring you is nicer than saying something mean, but it isn't real respectful.  If I don't like you, you know, and you know why, but there aren't many people that I associate myself with that I don't like.  I consider my friends, my family!  

Sorry about the earful today, I just really needed to share that, and I feel a whole lot better!  Thanks for listening, and I'm here if you want to let it out too!  What are your pet peeves?

Have a wonderful day! ♥ BJ

I am 100% on board with the complaint about people who you can't understand when they speak. Are they seriously too lazy to open their mouth all of the way when they talk. Ugh. Rant on girl!

Oooh, I love a good rant! I hate it when people use their mobiles whilst driving, too. It's illegal and shouldn't be happening, but we see people often in vans, driving along with a phone stuck to their ear.

And ignorance is most definitely a peeve of mine. Having an autistic daughter I get it all too often. I have learnt to brush it off but I have to admit, sometimes it hurts.

Pet peeves? When I'm trying to get our son ready for bed and my hubby is on the computer surfing. Then, my son sits on his lap to get out of the "wrath" of mom and the toothbrush and my husband says nothing to help me out. He just lets him sit on his lap....at 9:30 at night. Seriously!! UGH!

Hugs to you friend! I agree 100% with all of these points. I really hate when people cuss and use inappropriate language in front of kids (and I really hate it in movies when little kids cuss, there is nothing cute about that! But that is a whole different rant from me.) I also don't like people texting, tweeting or updating Facebook while driving. I have actually seen someone watching a video on their iPad while driving down the road. Are you kidding me??

Hope your day gets better!!
