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
